Pea coats, shawl-collared dress coats, ski jackets, leather moto jackets and more.
But I have yet to add a toggle coat to my list.
And this Burberry coat is the perfect coat in that category. Black with the Burberry Brit check (brown), which means it’s a total staple. It’s long enough to wear with a short skirt or dress, but short enough to be a casual coat.
And since this SAHM rarely has to be anywhere dressed up – it’s an everyday dream coat for me!
A crossbody bag, the perfect accessory for spring.
While I love big handbags, I’m really not one for filling them up.
That’s why this Burberry Berkeley Crossbody Bag is perfect for a girl like me. If I were to be honest, I regularly carry my wallet, lip gloss and my phone. While I may have other stuff in my bag, it’s not stuff I use often.
I can totally see this bag being the perfect size for a concert, the Summer Arts Fair, date night or dinner with my girlfriends.
Pair it with an eyelet sundress or white jeans and a flowy top, and it’s the perfect carry-most!
I’m ready for sandal weather. I want to get my pedi on and show it off with pretty open-toed shoes and sandals.
I also want to wear these Vince Camuto Tezer Tortoise Sandals that I just ordered. You would not believe the deal I got on them. And what’s more? How I actually got them for free – shipping included!
Months back, I ordered a beautiful Burberry watch for my husband. This particular retailer sent me an empty box. There was a little back and forth that went on. To make it up to me, they sent me a $50 gift card via email. Now that’s customer service!
I’ve been holding onto that certificate thinking that I’d try to order something fabulous and a little indulgent. So when I found these fun “dancing with the stars” shoes, which will go with just about anything, I had to spring for them.
Ok, so that’s not a very exciting title and sadly, I haven’t thought of anything clever yet either.
With that said, here’s a new little twist for LittleBlackSweats.com. Regularly, people shoot me a quick email or call me up and say, “I need something for….” Insert person, place or event. And I always try to find the right thing for said person, place or event either by knowing said person – personally. Or by getting a few key details about their lifestyle, personal style or personality. My thoughts were that maybe, just maybe, you’ll have a tricky gift situation and one of these fun ideas might work for you too!
Today was kind of a tricky one.
My husband told me recently how they will be picking out their top 10 clients and will begin doing nice, personal things for them. (Business 101 here too!) An account manager that works for my husband emailed me with this little tidbit this afternoon:
I am very sorry to bother you at home, but “DH” said you are the perfect person to assist with a shopping task. I have a customer that is 25 and a very metro sexual type. He loves the color white and wears bow ties and diamond studs. If you have any ideas on what would be a great little personal gift for around $50.00 I need all the help I can get.
Hmmm, this could be a tough one. My first instincts were that this is a guy, who would love expensive accessories to wear in a flashy way. Burberry belts, TAG Heuer watches… you get the idea. But the $50 limit posed a problem, as both of those things are well over the limit. After about 10 minutes of trolling the Internet for interesting men’s accessorries, I found these personalized collar stays at Red Envelope – one of my faves for unique gifts.
My idea was to personalize them with inspirational personal and/or professional quotes, which he will be able to read every time he gets dressed for another successful day. The idea was a big hit!
And oh! they have them specifically for dads too. You know dad’s day is right around the corner, right?!
