Aside from good conversations and great company, the key to hosting the perfect get together requires some social swag. Enter Society Social, a one-stop shop for bar carts, folding chairs, and other hosting necessities.

Take a look. As if you needed another excuse to make yourself a drink.

satchel up.

If I had to choose one bag to wear all fall, it would be the satchel.  Inspired by the Mulberry Alexa (a girl can dream, can’t she?), I love the part school boy, part equestrian style of the structured bag, complete with double buckles.  Tote it around with a top handle or sling across your body.  It’s functional enough to carry textbooks and laptops and chic enough to carry everywhere.

The general consensus: Mondays suck.  It means back to school or work for most and a whole ‘nother five days until it’s the weekend again.  And while we can’t escape the beginning of the week, we can certainly lessen the blow with some kickass heels.  With another long week ahead, these bright red suede pumps will surely help me start it off on the right foot.
