Budget, Bold and Ballin Buys

Bold - Zara
Ballin - Phillip Lim 

Happy Friday Everyone! For a few weeks now I have been trying to scout out the perfect black satchel for my my Fall wardrobe.  I have been quite indecisive about the whole ordeal but the one thing I know is that I really like the styles shown above.  They are all very similar in shape.  I love how spacious each bag is while still remaining very structured and chic. The zipper details are what really caught my eye on all of these bags.  I prefer subtle amounts of hardware and that's exactly what these satchels serve up.  I have been seeing this Phillip Lim by Target bag all over the place, including the arms of many New Yorkers, fellow bloggers and several online shopping sites.  Which one do you like best?  
Budget - Madewell
Bold - Marc by Marc Jacobs
Ballin - Rag & Bone

Tis the season to cozy up in a warm chunky oversized sweater. Well, maybe not just yet with this current heatwave we are experiencing here in the NorthEast, but soon enough.  Kelly and I have been drooling over countless boyfriend sweaters in every color imaginable. My biggest love affair is with mustard yellow sweaters but I will save that for another day.  I love the grey color because it can be paired with just about anything.  Although the budget priced sweater shown here is not super wallet friendly, I always say that spending a little more cash on a great sweater is worth it.  The material will be of higher quality that will give you many more years of wear. I think I'm stuck right in the middle with my fave sweater. This luxurious Marc Jacobs cable knit even comes with a warm and fuzzy scarf. Can't beat that!  MJ may have won me over with this sweater :) 
Have a lovely and safe weekend!
