I fell in love as soon as I saw these furry little pouches pop up on my Instagram feed. At $138 each, they’re the ideal way to embrace fall’s pastel faux fur invasion. I suggest stashing one in your larger work bag for essentials – credit card, phone – and carrying it to lunch or post-work drinks. Much cooler than a simple leather pouch or clutch, right? (Answer: a resounding yes.)
The Details: $138 each at Style Camp, 8433 Germantown Avenue, Chestnut Hill, 215-242-3108.

In a world where going hands-free is the ultimate luxury, the cross-body bag reigns supreme. But this season, the most sophisticated shape is a classic top-handle, made modern with graphic lines, bold hardware and striking materials. (Hand-painted python, anyone?) Click here for prices and where to buy. (You know you’re curious.)
These sandals are the season’s prettiest, perhaps because they capture what’s most lovely about it: the deep cinnamons, brick burgundies and melted-chocolate browns of turning leaves. With chunky copper heels and a rich mix of leather and velvet, they’re fashion’s version of fall, a carbon copy of Mother Nature’s palette in a style that—thankfully—won’t change with the seasons.

In our fall fashion spread, you might have noticed gold boots sticking out from a pair of Etro flares. (Refresh your memory here.) They’re Saint Laurent and they’re close to tipping into the four figures, a price that, sadly, isn’t in my fall-shopping budget, even though my toes pine for a taste of their gilded glory.
Then — as if the golden-shoe gods were looking out for me! —I discovered this pair by Faye Sevilla Smith, a Philly-based designer whom you might remember from her Old City boutique Sevilla Smith. Though the brick-and-mortar has since shuttered, Faye is still designing, and her standout shoes deserve a spot in your fall boot arsenal. Read more »
Our local jewelry design crush, Drew Ginsburg of Dylanlex, recently gained major street cred when Lady Gaga donned one of her designs in an Entertainment Weekly photo spread. The images feature the pop star dripping in Dylanlex jewels, styled to promote her new role in American Horror Story: Hotel. Read more »

Holy earrings. | Images via Dylanlex.
Drexel grad Drew Ginsburg has been on my watch list for a long time (see: this). Her more-is-more necklaces — huge, collar-like pieces made from generous swoops of Swarovski crystals and piles of mixed-metal chains — had me pining for other super-sized accessories.
Apparently, I wasn’t the only one, as Drew’s cult-loved jewelry brand, Dylanlex, recently added a smattering of earrings, rings and bracelets to her bold, magpie mix. The shoulder-grazing danglers are more accessible than her necklaces, which can tip into the four figures; they range from $120 to $480. Wear them for evening or — my personal favorite — with an old band tee, flared jeans (or dark skinnies, holes optional) and a killer pair of heels. Voilá! Read more »
The jewelry you’ll be coveting this fall. | Photo courtesy of Lagos.
A few weeks ago, the lovely Lagos team (did you know the company is based in Philly?) dropped by to show us a few pieces from the brand’s new fall collection, and we were instantly smitten. The pieces are totally luxe — diamonds, 18K gold — but in a wear-everyday way. There are gorgeous stackable rings (which I prefer to wear piled up to the knuckle) and more contemporary pieces, like a large pyramid-like pendant strung on a super-long silver chain. But the standouts are part of the new Black Caviar collection, a modern riff on the brand’s signature design, clusters of tiny beads that resemble the delicacy.
