TS Notice 9-19Over on TalkShoes, we recently checked out British model and It Girl Cara Delevingne’s for huge shoe collection, and we loved for more than just her great kicks. Green shoes seem to be having a moment, and we love this hue on everything from booties to pumps. We always love learning about emerging designers, and we are loving Alexis Isabel’s debut collection.

Forzieri International Edit September 22

Milan Fashion Week has had European handbags on our minds (which is not to say that they’re not always on our minds, because, ya know, obviously), and to satisfy that craving, we’re taking this week’s edition of The International Edit to Italy’s own Forzieri.

Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015 Handbags 4
