Staff Picks: Kate the Date

So we get tons of amazing new stuff in the store all the time. Like every day. Sometimes even I get overwhelmed by the goodness of everything we carry and I'm an assistant buyer here. Typically I feel like a kid on Christmas in the shop going 'I want I want I want'!

My favorite pieces in the store change every day, depending on my mood, but these here pieces I just can't stop loving on. It's almost cruel how much I love each and every one.

The Oaxacam Duffel by Will Leather Goods. Do not let this price tag scare you, it's worth every single penny. It's made of all recycled leathers and vintage mexican blankets - why not help out the environment while looking good! And seriously, the envy you'd inspire walking through JFK with this bag on your arm could be dangerous. L-I-V-I-N in the danger zone, no big deal.

I've also been obsessed with Tirana's Gear Bracelet for oh, about 2 years now. I'm really picky about bracelets (I've got tiny wrists and hands so nothing ever fits me) but this lil lady is adjustable and perfect in every way. I was even gushing to Graciela (the coolest lady and designer behind Tirana) about my undying love for it when I stopped by her studio this week. It makes a statement in a subtle, steampunk sort of way. And it's really lightweight so you forget you're even wearing it, bonus!

And finally, The Petal Vial Necklace. Such a simple idea - stick flower petals in a vial, pop in cork top, attach to a chain and tab daaaah! Adds a nice pop of color to my outfits because lord knows I like black. But beware, this necklace practically begs people to grab it from your neck at all times, demanding to know what's in it! I wore mine on Sunday and it happened 3 times. If you people break it because you keep yanking it off me, you're buying me a new one!
