In my day-to-day work life, a lot of accessories grace my computer screen. I'm a fashion editor, so it's just part of the job description. While it's fun to look at pretty shoes and handbags on the regular, it also means that a particular piece has to be pretty darn good to stand out from the rest. This collection of accessories manages to do just that.
Equal parts trendy, affordable, and elevated, the purses and shoes I'm highlighting below first got my attention after I noticed how expensive they look. (Spoiler: Everything is under $160.) Rich, jewel-toned satin and croc-embossed materials add a luxurious-looking effect that also pairs nicely with an array of cozy winter knits and shiny faux leather. Since I'm all about sticking to a budget (especially during the holiday season), these accessories quickly ascended to the top of my seasonal wish list. To see what all the hype is about, keep scrolling and pick out your favorite.
