What’s fabulous at Nordstrom? Top of my list is this Zac Zac Posen ‘Claudette’ Tasseled Crossbody
Now here’s a black bag that’s not practical, boring or forgettable! This utterly chic and perfect for an evening out for dinner, getting together with friends, theater or most anything is top of my list.
I simply love how long the tassels are and yet still don’t look too much. The gold shoulder chain adds so much more without making it gaudy and the silhouette will go with most outfits.
I don’t believe that regular black handbags are actually all that neutral, practical or go with everything. You have better options in shades of grey, beige, tan, olive, burgundy or navy blue as your go to neutral.
Black is quite elegant and should be treated so! This Zac crossbody is quite a looker and it also comes in a hobo style with tassels but I’m not a fan of it. The beauty of this little number is in the proportions.
It’s memorable, playful and classic enough to last a while. Tassels are just coming in fashion and this trend never really goes out. In fact, if I got my little dirty hands on it, I may not be able to get rid of it ever!
I would also add that the Nordstrom app for iPad is a perfect product like everything else they do. From their customer service, to in store or online experience, to social media and mobile apps, it is a company that understands and appreciates the customer.

Here’s this beautiful bag in a bigger size with just the right classy kind of fringe a bag should have!
What I’m excited to pull out of my closet this season: Fringe
We know it’s totally in and I like fringe a lot better than studs or other embellishments on handbags. I’m excited to pull out my favourite bag from last season, especially because it’s all about shades of pink, textures and comfort this Fall!
This Lauren by Ralph Lauren Faulk Suede Crossbody is light and easy to carry and like most things Ralph Lauren it loves the customer! The leather strap, zipper, amount of fringe itself and space is unbelievable for a bag that looks quite small.
It easily fits a wallet, an iPad mini, sunglasses, hand cream and much needed Rosebud salve in the winter months and a pack of tissues (for runny cold noses).
The only thing I would caution you against is taking it out while is snowing like I did! It does damage the suede a little but man was it a fun snowy afternoon!
I wish I could get the other shades in olive green and blush (they call it desert) but I’ll restrain myself. In case you’re feeling it, go for it. I adore adore adore this little number. And the new shades are simply beautiful!
I think they also might have a black one if you really want to play it safe or goth:) (Somehow, I’m not a fan of plain black handbags but I do have some items that would only look good in black :))
There is also a bigger hobo style Lauren with fringe at Macy’s. And a smaller one in beige by Michael in similar style which I’ll post the link to later.
I enjoyed sharing this with you and will talk about other items I’m excited to pull out of my closet soon!
Thanks for reading:)
