the Agalia bootie

PLV makes the most amazing pumps, and when you're on a budget, there's nothing better than a killing two birds with one stone. wear it to work with the comfort of a hidden platform, then head out after for some happy hour fun. the perfect transitional shoes for Fall. LOVE. (if you didn't see a link to any of the shoes up top then they aren't out yet, check back HERE for updates).

the large Bordeaux tote in olive and burgundy ponyhair. the leather handle on the one on the left is almost neon, it's amazing. the absolute perfect size bag to take to work or travel with.

the Calais III flap satchel in oxblood. perfect size to transition from day to night. wear it as a shoulder bag or satchel.

the Liv convertible clutch in black/royal from Kelsi Dagger

i had the pleasure of visiting the Pour la Victoire & Kelsi Dagger showrooms. founders Jay Adoni and David Giordano were extremely nice and welcoming in walking me through their new collections for Fall and giving me a sneak peek of what to expect for Spring 2012. (*think pastels and wooden platforms, metallics and 70's styling.....)

Pour la Victoire has been a favorite shoe line of mine since it's debut in 2008. perfect for the 20-something gal like myself, PLV combines luxury European style and trends from the runways with comfort and affordability that won't break my budget.

it was really awesome to get to meet with the designers, get an inside look at their design process and see the product before it hits the stores. i'm totally in love with the details they were into for Fall- cutouts, pony hair, lace up, platforms, burgundy being the biggest color this season, snakeskin, and off course a shearling bootie.
