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.

BAGS

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.

SHOES

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!

Wishtrend: Fresh Box Opening

At the end of last year, Wishtrend revamped their website! They sent me a Fresh Box to review, and after it got lost in the mail a bit, I finally got the box. Wishtrend is an online K-beauty store that sells brands like Klairs (which they acquired), I’m From, Skin & LAB, COSRX, and more.

It’s been a long time since I’ve collaborated with Wishtrend, so I’m excited to revisit this online shop! Do you remember when I reviewed the Klairs Moisture Rescue skincare line? That was back in 2015. If you want to shop the revamped website, use the coupon code “MAR10” for 10% off.

Now, onto the Fresh Box opening:

The branding of the box is so cute! Back in 2015, items were shipped in a plain cardboard box. Now, the inside of the cardboard box has the Wishtrend brand printed all over. All the boxed beauty products were bubble-wrapped, and sheet masks were in the reusable fabric pouch on top. Nothing was damaged!

In addition to beauty products, Wishtrend sent me a pen, sticky note pad, and stickers! These were a cute surprise.

Here were the beauty products in my box:

I have other skincare products I’m currently using, but I can’t wait to try these next! Have you ever tried these products before? Share your experiences in the comments. ^_^

YesStyle: First Haul

I’m so excited to share my first haul from YesStyle! I’ve checked out this site before but was wary of purchasing from it because there were so many items and I wasn’t even sure where to start. I finally decided to jump in during their spring sale and get a bunch of things at great deals. They offer free shipping if you spend $35 or more (and I hate paying for shipping, so free shipping is something I always look out for). Everyday, they also have Free Gifts you can claim. I totally forgot to claim a free gift during this haul, so I have to claim one next time.

On top of any sales going on at the moment, use the code “3PEARLS” to get an additional discount off your entire order! ^_^

Now, let’s take a look at my haul:

In my day-to-day life, I wear a lot of black… so of course, most of my new wardrobe additions are black too. I just find this color so easy to match! I got four tops in black during this haul.

  1. Short-Sleeve Mock-Neck Knit Top – ★★★☆☆ – This top isn’t the best quality (feels cheaply made, and there were lots of loose threads), but it was less than $10 so I can’t complain. It’s a stretchy fabric and the zipper is fully functional. The size chart was accurate.
  2. Heart Cutout Short-Sleeved T-Shirt – ★★★★☆ – I was worried about sizing for this item, but a size Medium fit me perfectly! The T-shirt’s cotton material was super soft, and the sheer heart cutout inset was surprisingly smooth. The inset wasn’t itchy like I thought it would be. I found this shirt to be higher quality than the first one.
  3. Bell-Sleeve Chiffon Blouse – ★★★★☆ – Love this item! The fabric is so pretty and it drapes well when worn. It’s better quality than I expected; the only thing I dislike about it is the button at the back of the neck. This button was difficult to do and undo (but I tend to have difficulty with buttons when they’re in the back). It’s sheer, so I recommend wearing a camisole with it.
  4. Ruffle Trim Blouse – ★★★☆☆ – This is a very stylish top, but the photos on the website are not accurate. The top I received had smaller ruffles than what is shown on the website stock photos. This isn’t a big deal though; it still looks fine when worn.

Besides my black tops, I also got some clothing pieces in other colors.

  1. Strappy Ruffled Floral Top – ★★★☆☆ – This top is super cute but feels cheaply made. I thought it would be embroidered, but the white floral patterns are printed on. The fabric is very thin, but not see-through. I had to cut off a lot of loose threads.
  2. Sheer Long-Sleeved Blouse + Camisole – ★★★★☆ – This set really impressed me! The quality is great, and both the camisole and the blouse fit me perfectly. The only complaint I have: there are three buttons on the back of the neck… I always have difficulty doing and undoing buttons at the back of the neck, so having 3 to deal with is frustrating for me (and I’m tempted to just… not button the back). If anyone has tips for doing these buttons efficiently, let me know! I have too many black shirts, but I’m tempted to get this in the black colorway as well…
  3. Plaid A-Line Pinafore Dress – ★★★★☆ – This is the priciest item in my haul, but it was still less than $20. I wasn’t sure if Size S or Size M would fit me better, so I chose Medium to be safe. I’m glad I did! It has a loose fit when you first put it on, but you can tighten it around the waist with the attached buckles. There were a few loose threads, and the acrylic blend feels a bit itchy which is why I didn’t rate it 5 stars.

I also couldn’t resist adding a few accessories to my haul…

  1. Faux Leather Heart Buckle Belt – ★★★☆☆ – This belt is super cute!! But the faux leather is… really faux. It feels almost like paper or cardboard. Definitely be gentle with this belt; I’m not sure how long it will last if you’re rough with it. The first photo in this post is a pic of me wearing the belt. It looks great when worn! I wish the quality was nicer, but for less than $5, I can’t complain.
  2. 925 Sterling Silver Non-matching Rhinestone Moon Dangle Earrings – ★★★☆☆ – These earrings are so cute! I wish they had metal backings though. The backings they came with are the clear plastic kind, that you sometimes find with hook earrings. They are difficult to put on and remove from stud earrings. The photos on the website are also inaccurate: the chain on the longer mismatched earring is longer in the photos than the one I received.
  3. 925 Sterling Silver Petal Hook Earrings – ★★★★☆ – These earrings are so pretty and elegant! I wish they came with backings, but it’s no big deal. I might use the backings on the other pair of earrings with this one, and then share my other stud backings with the mismatching earrings I got. Both sets of earrings are real sterling silver; I have sensitive ears and I didn’t have a reaction to either of these.

If you shop at YesStyle, let me know if you have any of these items!
