In this blog post, I’ll share 3 fall picks for bags and 3 fall picks for shoes that are currently available on Italist and are new styles as part of the FW22 season.


Valentino Garavani Roman Shoulder Bag

Lambskin roman shoulder bag by Valentino Garavani, quilted design with tone-on-tone topstitching, iconic studs and tone-on-tone metal parts applied all-over, front swivel closure, interior flat pocket with zipper, two flat pockets open inside, removable sliding chain shoulder strap.

Made in: Italy

Color: Nero

Size and fit:

  • W 28 x H 16 x D 8 cm

My thoughts: A beautiful lambskin leather bag! I love the black metal studs. This all-black bag gives off punk-rock vibes. It would be perfectly coorded with Japanese punk styles as well! I can totally see this bag being paired with a Sex Pot Revenge skirt or a Putumayo dress. It would also look great more casually, with jeans and a sweater as we’re moving into crisp and cool autumn weather.

Versace Patent Bag in Red

Calfskin patent bag by Versace, shiny leather, contrasting embossed brand logo on the front, contrasting rigid chain handle, adjustable and removable shoulder strap in shiny leather, main compartment, welt pocket inside, contrasting press-stud brand logo inside.

Made in: Italy

Color: Claret+oro Versace

Size and fit:

  • W 16 x H 14,5 m x D 6,5 cm

My thoughts: My favorite color is red! Love the shiny patent leather of this bag. This bright lipstick red hue is gorgeous. The medusa logo is really cool too, and I think this bag would be a great statement piece for any outfit. Even if you don’t wear red, the pop of red color from this bag will make your outfit look more interesting. This will go well with black, white, or neutral colors. It would also look cool with pink! The chunky handle is very trendy.

Fendi Fendigraphy Bag

Calfskin fendigraphy bag by Fendi, smooth leather design, top zip fastening, single adjustable leather handle, iconic brand signature in antiqued brass embossed on the base, inside welt pocket.

Made in: Italy

Color: L.rose+ovibr+os

Size and fit:

  • W 27 x H 16 x D 9 cm

My thoughts: Love the crescent moon shape of this bag! I also like that the Fendi logo isn’t plastered all over this bag. Instead, FENDI is discreetly placed at the bottom of the bag with antiqued brass. It’s cool and unique! The handle is adjustable so you can make it smaller or larger as you like it. You can hold it in your hands as a handbag, or use it as a shoulder bag. The color is a fantastic neutral that will match many different outfits and colors. You can use this bag casually, or on more formal occasions.


Bottega Veneta Black Padded Sandals

Padded sandals in black quilted lambskin. Rubber-injected leather outsole.
Heel height: 9cm

Composition: 100% Lambskin

Made in: Italy

Color: BLACK

My thoughts: I absolutely adore the design of these shoes. So sophisticated and elegant! I love the quilted lambskin. It reminds me of the Chanel classic flap bag. These high heel sandals will be lovely with a little black dress. You can even wear them to elevate a pair of jeans. Even though I don’t wear heels often, I am seriously snagging a pair of these sandals for myself to wear on special occasions or for a photoshoot. From all my fall picks in this post, this is the one I’m going to pick!

Prada Mary Jane Pumps

Calfskin mary jane pumps by prada, square toe on front, adjustable instep strap, geometric leather heel, embossed triangular applied plaque on front with contrasting signature, logo insole.
Composition: 100% % Calf Leather Bos Taurus, 100% % Calf Leather Bos Taurus

Made in: Italy

Color: Nero

My thoughts: Love the boxy shape of these mary jane shoes! The heel has a unique shape, and the pointed toe echoes the triangle shaped plaque of the Prada logo. The block heel style would make these high heeled pumps easier to wear. The adjustable strap would also keep your feet secure.

Gucci High Heel Printed Boots

Made in: Italy

Color: Beige/Nero

My thoughts: I love the printed snakeskin pattern on these trendy high heel boots! It looks like these boots will come up to your knees, and the contrasting black piece also has the etchings of faux snakeskin into the material. These are definitely eye-catching boots!

Out of all 6 of these fall picks, which one is your favorite? When you shop at Italist, be sure to use my coupon code “RF-220X-8D5254” for the chance to win $500 in store credit!

The Wonderful World of MBOK

You can find some great deals on Mbok! Mbok is a Japanese online auction site that has a wide variety of items. There are lots of great J-Fashion (including lolita!) items there: you can find dresses, shirts, skirts, pants, jewelry, hair accessories, bags, novelties, and more. If you are not a resident of Japan, you need to use a shopping service to bid on Mbok items. The shopping service I used is Japonica, but there are other shopping services out there.

Searching for specific items on Mbok can be time-consuming, since you have to scroll through different pages, but it is pretty easy to find good deals on brand (and offbrand) items.

I would recommend using the Google Translate extension if you have the Google Chrome web browser. If you do not have Chrome, copying and pasting the Mbok URL into Google Translate works too. Google Translate is not perfect, but it works well enough to help with Mbok navigation.

Check out Mbok’s Alternative/Punk section for lots of lolita items! This is where you will find Angelic Pretty, Baby the Stars Shine Bright, h.NAOTO, Emily Temple Cute, Jane Marple, and more. This section houses lolita, gothic, punk, and other alternative styles.

You can also search for items from a specific brand on Mbok by looking at the brand category. Here are some great links to lolita brand items on Mbok:

Innocent World

Baby the Stars Shine Bright

Angelic Pretty



Here are links to some great brands that may carry loliable items on Mbok:

Axes Femme – This brand has great cutsews and cute blouses! There are some nice skirts, JSKs, and OPs too (but not all items will accommodate a petticoat). An Axes Femme item was one of my first Mbok purchases!

Liz Lisa – This is a popular Gyaru brand that has some loliable blouses, cardigans, and cutsews.

Tralala – I’m not too familiar with Tralala, but it is one of Liz Lisa’s sister brands. You may be able to find loliable stuff here too!

Jesus Diamante – I’m not too familiar with this brand either, but it’s a popular Hime Gyaru brand and I’ve seen lots of cute loliable coats from them! They also have really cute parkas/sweatshirts.

If you are interested in Gyaru fashion, check out the whole Mbok 109/GAL section. I have not extensively explored this section yet, but there are tons of brands and lots of cute and cool clothes!

If you want to use Mbok’s search feature, here are a few terms you can try:

ロリータ or ロリィタ-  Lolita

姫  –  Princess (Hime)

ワンピース – One Piece (OP)

福袋 – Lucky Pack (Fukubukuro)

Find many more helpful search terms from this EGL post by Kyomu.

Have fun browsing and shopping~!
