As Seen in Women’s World Magazine: Earth Women’s Brushcherry!

There’s a new low wedge out that’s making all sorts of headlines: the Earth Brushcherry! Women’s World magazine even called it this “Fall’s prettiest shoe!” Given its girly details, I have to agree. It’s got a ½” platform height, and a 1 ½” heel height that makes the shoe a little dressy, but it’s low enough for sheer comfort.

I love the flower detailing on the toe. The Brushcherry is also available in Black suede, Burgundy and Navy, so you can have all sorts of versatility with your wardrobe. This is the perfect everyday shoe for the office and beyond!

As with all Earth shoes, the multi-density cushioning and reinforced arch support provide outstanding comfort and support so that you can wear these all day long.

Introducing….Anuschka Handbags!

If you love hand painted materials, you’ll love Anuschka bags. These bags feature bright, cheery patterns on high-quality leather materials, and are handcrafted in a small family-owned and run workshop in India.

Made from fine grain cowhide, each bag is hand cut. Next, artisans sketch each piece with a specific design, and then they paint the entire bag by hand. The bags are also signed by a family member after inspection to reflect the highest standard of quality.

The great thing about these bags is that not only are they practical and functional, they are actually pieces of art that you can wear. Since they’re hand painted, each bag is one of a kind. As a result, your bag may vary slightly from the image on the website.

I really love the variety of patterns and styles of the Anuschka handbags. Here are a couple of my favorites:

The Medium Zippered Hobo – this beautiful bag features  gorgeous autumnal colors and a floral pattern. I really like all of the pockets that this bag contains: 2 zippered pockets in front, 1 inside zippered pocket, 5 multipurpose pockets, 4 credit card pockets, rear zip pockets, and a slip-in cell phone pocket. There is even a removable optical case. There’s a pocket for just about everything you need. All that storage in such a luxurious and beautiful design is definitely a win.

The Safari Double Entry Shopper – If you love designs with Peacock feathers, you’ll love this bag. The beautiful jewel tones make this handbag a must-have for your wardrobe! There’s no shortage of pockets in this bag either; there’s a zippered pocket in the back wall, pockets for a cell phone and other purposes in the front wall, and a rear zip pocket. This bag is very spacious at 14.25” x 9.25”, so you can hold a lot of items in it!

Take a look at the new hand painted bags from Anuschka. They are truly one of a kind!
