Three for Fall

It may not feel like it, but fall is around the corner. I have three items on my list: a vintage Cartier Tank watch with a leather strap, a new coat (there are some good ones for FW18), and a black handbag that is not as big as my hobo and a bit more subtle than a classic Chanel. This Marni Trunk fits the bill and the polished calf is super chic.

Watch, Miu Miu coat, Marni Trunk shoulder bag.

  • My big item will be a coat this fall. We’re having such a heat wave in LA it seems hard to imagine it’ll get cold. Also trying to decide what color for the coat….

  • Love the clean, classic shape and finish of the bag above! Beautiful silhouette! After a lot of pondering, I ultimately purchased a lovely, classic lambskin Chanel flap bag which I also love. There is much to be said for simple, classic, medium size black handbags – they go everywhere.

  • This handbag is sitting on the table in my closet just waiting for fall—I love that it’s understated and very versatile (shoulder or crossbody).

  • I have a love hate relationship with my Celine box. The strap hole is stretched out so the straps keep falling off, otherwise the Celine box is my classic black bag, and I use it every season, not just in the fall.

  • Am not in the Marni bracket but in the winter purchased a Rag and Bone large pilot in black. It’s similar in function in that it lays flat against the body (after my AW Diego that rolled around ) and has the extra raised pocket on the front, love it. My sister shamed me out of buying a gorgeous Helmut Lang winter trench the other day by saying I “I have enough beautiful coats”. Sigh.

  • I would love to hear what you and other KIC readers have to say about buying jewelry off of the vintage sites like RealReal. I have been considering treating myself to a gold Cartier anglaise tank for a big birthday, but accounts of counterfeits have scared me back to considering paying retail at Cartier.

  • Linda I came on to ask the same thing. Have been searching for a vintage tank for a while now but there are so many high quality fakes out there. How does one really know? Cartier says they won’t authenticate either…

  • Both The Real Real and Vestiaire Collective claim they have professional horologists on staff to authenticate the watches. I think The Real Real allows returns.
