I was browsing as I do EVERYDAY…LOL…NET-A-PORTER.COM and saw these light green Ombre Patent Leather Pumps by Rubert Sanderson on sale for $357 (down from $595). I really can’t wear heels any longer but for one of you who can I think they could be a nice addition to your Fall ’08 wardrobe. Any takers?

I’ve noticed for awhile that Ombre has become a trend this year. I really like this trend. I think I really became aware of it and how much I liked it when I saw Gwen Stefani’s wedding dress by John Galliano for Dior back in 2002.
Before I left for vacation I bookmarked several Ombre items I found that I liked but I’ll post some of those another time. This post is about some items I recently found that incorporate the Ombre trend with another popular trend I like Patent Leather.
Bloomingdales showed an Ombre and Patent Leather bag by Maxx in their recent catalog.
Maxx New York Women’s Degradé Ombre Large Tote Bag – $198
Comes in Purple as well.
Also at Bloomingdale’s was this bag by L.A.M.B (seems Gwen likes the Ombre trend in things other than Wedding Dresses)
The above bags can be yours with a 20% discount by using the code FLOWER now thru May 21st at Bloomingdales.com.
But Bloomingdales is not the only place offering items combining these two trends. Some of my other favorite shopping sites have some cool Patent and Ombre items. Enjoy!

You know I’m always on the search for inexpensive items that are cute and on trend. In my effort to do that, I came upon the cutest cheapest patent “leather” sandals from Old Navy that I just had to share with you:
Women’s Patent T-Strap Sandals Chic patent sandal features a classic t-strap design. Closed back provides support, while adjustable buckle lets you find the right fit. Hard sole is textured for traction.
Women’s Embellished Patent T-Strap Sandals Embellished with four polished disks, these patent t-straps flow gracefully into a sexy ankle strap. Side-buckle gives an adjustable fit.
I got the first pair in them in Red and the second in Green. Now I just need summer to come so I can wear them 😉
Hurry up and get your pair before they sell out.
I had to return something to Bloomingdale’s yesterday and I looked on their site to see if there was something I could exchange it for. I found these items on sale that were Patent leather and/or Metallic. You should check them out:
