The Covetable Closet

In a previous post I talked about changing my "shopping strategy" to adjust my spending and to end up with a more well rounded wardrobe.  My new strategy is going to be to choose pieces that are classic and well made, pieces that I covet.  These French Sole shoes I are something that I coveted and finally purchased. Covet by definition means to wish for earnestly, so each month I will choose two pieces that I wish for earnestly.  Now I am not going to buy both pieces, I will post about the items at the beginning of the month and my readers (you guys) will help me decide which piece is more covetable.   At the end of the month the item with the highest votes will be deemed most covetable and will be added to my wardrobe.  This month's covetable contenders are...

These J.Crew "Salina" leather sandals in rich toffee are drool worthy, no? The flat sole and supple leather straps make them very versatile thus fitting the "Covetable Closet" criteria.  After a full in store inspection I was please with their overall appearance and the quality of the shoe.  This kind of leather only gets better with age.

Covetable contender number two is this lovely Lolly Pop Red lady like satchel from The Cambridge Satchel Company.  This leather satchel comes in many colors and multiple sizes, but it's the 11" red number that caught my attention.  I have been wanting a red handbag for a while and it might not seem like the most practical color, but I have a thing for bright accessories.  Each satchel is made to order, by hand in the UK.

The Votes must be in by 12 pm Sunday, July 24 and will be tallied on Monday, July 25th.  Please take a second to vote and help me choose a timeless item to add to my closet.
