Herschel Supply backpacks + Mickey Mouse add up to retro cool.

Since what’s old is new again, how are we not surprised that America’s favorite mouse is now part of a cool new collaboration with those Herschel Supply backpacks that are now favored by hipster kids everywhere. Starting today, you can find retro Mickey Mouse all over a limited edition collection of Herschel’s navy and white backpacks, pouches, and wallets. What we really like is that this is Steamboat Willie era Mickey here.  As in, the imagery is taken from his original American and Japanese illustrations — none of that new-fangled CGI stuff. Now if only Strawberry Shortcake, Dora and My Little Pony would go back to their original looks, too. Find the limited edition...

The coolest accessory brands and shops that we fell in love with this year: Editors’ Best of 2015

You might say we’ve got a little thing for accessories. And you might say that’s a huge understatement. Which is why we have the best time all year poking around the internet, cruising the trade shows, and poking our heads into local jewelers, artists’ studios and museum shops, all to find cool new accessories we love. And we do love them. So we hope you love these, our picks for our artists and resources for jewelry and accessories that we shared in 2015 — but are going to be wearing (or just coveting) long into 2016 and beyond. If it helps update your wardrobe, it it...

Another reason to love FashionABLE: Wallets!

Most of my friends, family, even my kids’ classroom teachers know by now that FashionABLE is my go-to for gifts because they’re all wearing something from them. Gorgeous scarves, fabulous totes, the list goes on. Well, now they’ve added wallets, I have to say might just be the gift from them I finally give to myself, and not just because they match their amazing leather totes I carry around daily. Okay, maybe a little.   As I just mentioned, I’m a huge fan of black and cognac leather, which is exactly what these handmade leather wallets are made from. But the size is perfect for...

The new FashionABLE fall line has us ready for cooler climes. Yes, it’s just that good.

I’m pretty sure my closet looks like a FashionABLE storefront, so now that scarf weather is around the corner, you can bet I’ve got my eye on the new FashionABLE fall line, which just so happens to be exclusively at Great.ly for a limited time. Add in free shipping for the rest of the weekend, and there is just no reason to wait. We’ve stocked the Cool Mom Picks indie shop at Great.ly with all of our favorites from the new FashionABLE fall line. And don’t forget about the not new, not fall items in there either. Seriously, those leather bracelets are killer in any...

Spring trend alert: Cool floral accessories for women that have nothing to do with Laura Ingalls.

I’ve had my eye on this floral trend for awhile now, but it took seeing the gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff floral trim cross body bag below to finally convince me that I could pull it off–with the caveat that I need to be focusing on cool floral accessories. No flower pants or gauzy floral skirts for me. And now that it’s finally spring (YAY SPRING) it’s time to make my move. If you love the floral look but want a modern, on-trend way to wear them, take a peek at these cool floral accessories for spring that you can wear all...

The new Coach bags: The coolest of colorblock for spring

Ooh, how the new Coach bags are tempting me this spring. I’ve loved the whole colorblock trend even before it was hot, which means I’ve got lots of pieces I can pull right out of my closet and wear in a snap. But these stylish handbags are giving me a little something new to freshen up my wardrobe. I’m a little obsessed with stripes, but you don’t have to be to fall immediately in love with the Coach Borough bag. It’s one of the coolest and most chic of the new Coach bags, let alone any of the black and white bags I’ve...

The new Hayden-Harnett clutches and wallets: Awesome holiday gift on sale, check.

My obsession with indie designer bag and accessory label Hayden-Harnett is getting–well, a little obsessive. And these new clutches are an amazing gift for the stylish women on your list, especially at a sale price this week only. Through Sunday, save 25% on the new wallets, including this fabulous leather Bardot Pouch with python print. I’m having trouble choosing between the solid practical black (always my inclination), a poppy fun green, or the more daring multi colored python print. Considering the price is already good at $58 but drops down to $44 with the discount, maybe I don’t have to choose...

The James Bond wallet for Father’s Day

While big kids may be busy at camp in the coming weeks stitching up a leather wallet for Father’s Day (and I’m sure it’s lovely), I think we can all safely agree that stainless steel is sleeker and tougher. That’s why I love the wallets and passport sleeves by Brooklyn’s Stewart/Stand. These manly accoutrements look high-tech because they are. The silky-smooth stainless steel fabric is specially created for use in aerospace and automotive manufacturing, but makes for a dandy wallet material, since it helps prevent credit card fraud by blocking what they call “non-deliberate communication” between your cards and...
