Chic is where you find it…part deux

Does Talbots also have nice handbags at reasonable prices, you ask?

Why, yes they do. Currently their selection is a bit thin, but these two would be une femme’s picks:Cross embossed bag, $178.
Patent leather tote, $134.99 (on sale). Patent leather still seems to be going strong for fall/winter, and this bottle green is a great color that you can carry into spring.
Some nice scarves too:

Silk paisley oblong, $34. (This one could also be worn as a belt.)

Here’s a plissé with a hint of leopard, $58.

And a wool/silk large large square, $68. Love the colors in this one!

    Ooh, I like those Pilgrim flats too. They’re very Roger Vivier!

    I found a pair of brown suede pilgrim flats at Talbots that are on their way to me, thanks to you. I too have done well at Talbots with scarves. Occasionally I have found some great jewelry there too.

    That challis square (bottom) is a beauty… as nice as anything I tried on in Paris. I bought a heavy taupe/gray blanket weight wool shawl.
