sass & bide is the namesake label of Sarah- Jane Clarke (sass) & Heidi Middleton (bide). A former accountant and advertising art director, the label offers a full range of women’s ready to wear, denim  & accouterment collections. Bold yet free-spirited, you can always find unique pieces in their collections.

The In Love With Romance Snake Chain Harness is a good example. Full bodied jewelry that can be worn over tees, dresses and jackets. Novel and unpredictable, the label is awfully fun to follow.

Bucket Bag: The Diego Bag by Alexander Wang

✯✯✯

Alexander Wang Diego Bag

The bucket tote was originally invented by Louis Vuitton in 1932 (Noe Bag) for the sole purpuse of supporting four bottles of champagne. Currently evolving, a bucket-style bag can be found in many designer’s collections.

The Diego Bag by Alexander Wang features a top handle and adjustable shoulder strap. Metal rivits decorate the top and bottom and come in a multitude of tones (favorite – rose gold). The rugged pebbled leather is supple and pliant in which gives the bucket-style shape. The drawstring opening allows for easy access to items and secure closure.

The Diego Bag by Alexander Wang is currently at the top of my wish list. Blending edge with versatility, this bag will make a lasting impression.

The Classics: Miu Miu Suade Mary Jane Pumps

Miu Miu Suade Mary Jane Pumps

Mary Jane was a character created by Richard Outcault for his comic strip, Buster Brown. Published in 1902, Mary Jane was the little sister of the main character, Buster Brown. Outcault used this comic to advertise his products for The Brown Shoe Company and eventually the style of the shoe worn by the little girl became known in popular cultures as Mary Janes.

Traditionally made in black patent leather and only worn by young girls, the current style of the Mary Jane has come a long way. Available in platform, stiletto and chunky heels and with bauble and buckle garnishes, the Mary Jane is the classiest classic.

The Suade Mary Jane Pumps by Miu Miu are the epitome of the classic feminine shoe. Perfectly constructed, this shoe is not only elegant but adorable at the same time. The sexy stiletto and platform adds height and balance as the dainty strap reveals it’s feminine nature.

The Mary Jane can be found in many forms and designer’s collections. Celebrate the holidays with your favorite party dress and Mary Jane.
