This Fall/Winter 2013, it seems like bright colored fur prints and bags will be all the latest fashion. Versace showed off an electric-yellow zebra stripped coat perfect for catching anyone’s attention on a gloomy day. If you don’t feel like attracting too much attention with a zebra yellow coat, how about toning it down with an animal print bag like Fendi’s pictured above? This would be a fabulous accessory to make any neutral outfit stand out. If brightly colored animal prints are not your thing, than you can still be glam with studded shoes and bags . Studded bags have been around for quite a while, but now the fierce decorations are going to be seen more on shoes. Jimmy Choo’s black pumps feature crystal studs giving the shoes some sparkle without completely going over the top.
It’s that time of the year again! Make sure to check us out this year for Fashion Coterie at the Javits Center in New York. We are located at Pier 94 Booth #2408. See anything you like?
Based in Berkley, CA, Claflin Thayer &Co., is a unique leather goods and accessories line created by leather goddess Liz Thayer. This all American family business was inspired by Liz’s father, Edward Claflin Thayer, who opened a leather shoe shop around 1820.Some of the most popular items the line carries are the adorable baby booties and “JoJo Lips” bags. Each leather hide has a history based on the animal it was taken from, no leather will be identical. Claflin Thayer &Co.’s website states that blemishes, scars and marks on the leather will only add to the uniqueness of the item.
Perfect for a night out, the “JoJo” lips are made in different colors and are also offered in metallic or suede. We definitely see these bags being used for carrying ID’s, phones and make-up on a night about the town!
Although the website only lists the “JoJo Lips” and baby booties for sale, Liz Thayer has made some other really cool items listed on her blog. In the past she has designed studded leather bags and jackets, this woman has an eye for fashion!
All items are designed, cut, and constructed on a made-to-order basis; make sure to check out some of Liz’s work.
