No, for all you online and catalog shoppers, this post is not referring to shipping & handling, don’t worry. It’s a short way of giving you the cue for my new post category: shoes & handbags! I want to try to frequently post my favorite choices for eye-catching shoes with handbags that compliment them well, even if they’re not intended to go together. I can’t make it a point to post an “S&H of the Day” because between a hectic academic and work life with a relationship thrown into the mix, it’s tough to post every day on things that I find that are worth talking about. Therefore, I’ll do it as much as possible and the posts for them will be brief and pretty nondescript. The choices that I show you may be on the expensive side but you can always find a designer look in a knock-off version under a different brand; and by knock-off I don’t mean counterfeit. There’s a HUGE difference. For instance, a counterfeit bag is one that is cheap quality and made to look like a replica of say, a Chanel bag, and it’s passed off as being a genuine one when it isn’t. A knock-off is like mimicking an idea or design and taking a high-fashion runway look (haute couture) or other couture pieces and creations from well-known, high-end designers and imitating them for pret-a-port fashion. This is how more affordable brands and certain companies carry the mass-produced clothing and accessories that we love. It’s taking a trend and making it into something that everyone can afford and enjoy without the label. Therefore, if you see an amazing new pair of springtime Louboutins with a Versace bag and you love them both but can’t afford the steep price tag, you can always do some searching and find similar looks for better prices. If you have trouble finding something you’re searching for, don’t hesitate to email me or leave a comment and I’ll help you out!
So here’s my S&H worth knowing about:
