I Am Loving This Accessories Line


My accessories designer friend Wendy, who is a treasure trove of resources lately, just turned me on to mostly-vegan line Charles & Keith (although there is a smattering of leather and also great jewelry and sunnies). And the best part is that everything looks rich yet is (sometimes way) under $100. These burgundy chain-trimmed wedges are giving me strong APC vibes and I would wear them with my New Standards and thin black socks right now!

I am crazy about the woven detail of this cute crossbody.

The Annie Hall-ness of these chic nerdy sunglasses feels super new and fresh.

These fun boots would make a good sneaker alternative, because they look just as comfy.

Here’s a chic wrap cuff to wear alone or with other bracelets or a watch.

I love the elevated motorcycle feel of this roomy wallet that doubles as a small crossbody or clutch.

These chic (faux) suede heels remind me of a pricier Alexander Wang back pair I bought for a wedding.

Here’s the black mini tote verson of that yellow bag, above. And it comes with a handy shoulder strap!

Jeff Koons-meets- Louis Vuitton balloon initial charms are too cute to pass up.

These cool knit lace-ups look like some crazy designer boots from someone like Ann Demeulemeester or Dries van Noten.

This polished little wallet/bag is the perfect unschleppy size for right now.

  1. Am I the only one who hates the term Vegan Leather? There is no such thing.
    It’s plastic people, (or vinyl, synthetic something) always has been always will.

    1. Totally agree. And I’m ok with it in bags but I have yet to find plastic shoes or jackets that don’t make me sweaty. They just don’t breathe like real leather.

    1. I ordered the burgundy chain trimmed wedges and they arrived today and fit perfectly! I wear a size 9 and ordered the 39. They are very comfortable shoes and seem well-made. Thanks, Andrea, for introducing us to this great line!

    1. Gave in and bought the knit boots! FYI if you sign up for their mailing list you get a code for ten percent off which basically equals free shipping.

    2. The boots arrived – so fast – and they are adorable. Just as pictured. And in terms of size, I’m a 7 always and bought a size 7 and it fits perfectly. Maybe one day I’ll have someplace to wear them!

  2. Such a fan of cruelty-free products like vegan leather — thank you! Would love to hear more about the APC jeans, and about the wearing of men’s jeans in general. Just bought a pair of men’s at Eddie Bauer and am wondering where they’ve been all my life.
