Classic Essentials

Tory Burch had a sale a couple of weeks ago so, after a little spring cleaning, I figured it was a good time to pick up a few things.

Wallet: I purchased my previous wallet in 2001 and, after much wear and tear, it was finally time for something new. I usually carry small handbags, so I needed a wallet that is small enough to fit into my bags and large enough to hold all of my things. I also needed something sturdy because, as you can tell from my previous wallet, I will carry it for a long time. I chose the Robinson Mini Zip Continental wallet because it is simple, timeless and made of scratch-resistant leather.

Flats: I don't buy most things on a whim, and I give a lot of thought to large purchases before I make them. I tried on these Aimee flats in December while I was browsing in the mall. I loved them, but I decided to wait until spring to purchase them. This way, if I still loved them as much as I did when I initially saw them, I know I'll wear them for years to come. I still love them (obviously), and I can't wait to wear them with shift dresses or black cigarette pants.

Handbag: I have wanted a quilted handbag with a chain strap for as long as I can remember and, since the iconic Chanel flap bag continues to remain out of my budget, Tory Burch has created something that I can love just as much. This particular bag has sold out, but the mini version is still available.

    1. Thanks! I keep all my leather goods (wallets, purses, shoes) for many years, and I only replace them when they are practically falling apart. It was a good sale, so I racked up while the prices were low (well, lower than usual)

  6. Good idea to do some spring cleaning and then go shopping! I need to do the same. Love your purchases and great photos.
    A classic item I've purchased recently is a gorgeous leather jacket by Vince. I think we can all agree that a cropped leather jacket is essential. :)
