Finally, I am not lugging around a huge black bag and, while it took a little adjustment, I am only carrying what I really need and I don't seem to be missing all those items I was dragging around. And it turns out, a grey bag goes with everything! Here's a peak at my Love, Alex Holly satchel that has just enough room for my essentials and a handy credit card slot on the pouch... perfect for my metro card! Love, Alex not only has a beautiful handcrafted collection but they have dedicated resources generated from sales to charities that focus on children's welfare and education. It feels really good to wear one of their bags, even more so when you know that you are helping fund the mission of Love, Alex whose motto is Love Changes Everything.

I love the look of the white sweater and pink skirt, so much so, it inspired me to look for a few more pleated midi skirts. Did you know that 'midi' is a fashion trend? As trends go, this is one trend that I am happy to embrace...

Every year it seems like Christmas decorations and gift selections are showing up earlier and earlier in stores and while it seems crazy to be buying strings of lights and ornaments in October, I have to admit that I think about my shopping list all year long. I am always looking for just the right present for the people on my list and when I find it, even months in advance, I buy it and keep it in my present drawer until their birthday or Christmas. If you are new to Ridgely's Radar (welcome!) or a regular reader (thank you!), you will see that I have a category called Wrapping Radar - look over to the column on the right it is the last item under categories. This is where I tag all my posts that have items I think would be a good present. You can check back over the season and click on that category to get present ideas! To start off this seasons' gift giving, I found these great trinket trays from C. Wonder. They are $20 and perfect for anyone on your list; Secret Santa, book club, teacher, daughter's best gal pal, co-worker who is impossible to shop for, etc... just about anyone would love a place to put their trinkets. With most of the fab finds at C. Wonder they fly off the shelves, so take a minute to grab a few and check off someone on your holiday shopping list. Happy Shopping!

There is something about this slouchy waffle sweater with the slit on the sides that speaks to me. I like how it is paired with the long leather skirt and booties, and I know it would look great with skinny jeans and tall boots. And I love it even more because Banana Republic is having a special 45% off sale (on-line only - ends 10/28)... Happy Shopping!

I seem to be drawn to shearling lined footwear, it started when I began to look for a pair of boots to keep my toes warm this Winter (see my post here) and now I am thinking about slippers. What do you think of these slippers that are part sandal, with cozy, soft shearling and a cushioned footbed? I am leaning to the pair in the middle...they look really comfortable. If they are not for you, you can't go wrong with these more traditional slippers from UGG..
