If you haven’t read her fabulous books already, you’ve probably seen “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” the book-turned-movie by British author Sophie Kinsella. The Shopaholic series offers one more glimpse into Becky Bloomwood’s story, and to our delight. If there’s anything she knows, it’s fashion and shopping, and how to convey her character’s passion for finding that perfect handbag, shoes, and more. Truth is, we couldn’t wait to see what is on Kinsella’s own shopping list this season. Take a look at Kinsella’s picks and comments below:
I’m a massive fan of Prada shoes, and these ballerina flats are adorable. They’ll help me hang on to summer for as long as possible…
Phil Oh Favorite Handbags Fall 2014: As fall bags take hold of NYC street-style snapper Phil Oh shoots his favorites for Saks Fifth Avenue.
Who is Mr. Street Pepper? Phil Oh it’s the man behind the blog called Street Peeper. He was born and raised in Chicago, and moved to NYC to study history at New York University, and after a series of random jobs (selling beanie babies, waiting tables, failed internet startup, more waiting tables, and author of trashy chick-lit novel Secrets of the Model Dorm), he started his blog, which attempts to document what personal style he founds to be interesting in cities across the globe.

Bamboo sandals by Gucci: For sun-kissed feet, Gucci presents soft suede sandals with a gold bamboo detail as the must-have shoe this Summer.
At the head of the Italian fashion house, Guccio Gucci‘s sons Aldo, Ugo, Vasco and Rodolfo designed the Bamboo, a soft leather bag adorned with a curved bamboo handle, in 1957. With its iconic look, 13 hours of hand-crafting and variations in precious leathers and exotic skins, the Bamboo continues to be one of the most desirable Gucci signature pieces. For Spring/Summer 2014, creative director since 2004 Frida Giannini takes inspiration from the iconic Bamboo bag, with a pair of delicate suede sandals featuring the gold bamboo detail. Step into Summer, in Gucci‘s must-have sandals.
Luxe Espadrilles: The jute rope sole remains, but thanks to Stella McCartney’s metallic style and Loewe’s butter-soft leather version, the beach shoe is now a revamped must-have. Team with rolled-up jeans and a camisole for easy post-beach style.
Fendi’s yellow, black and white woven cotton pair are crafted in Spain and feature a patent-leather toe cap. Stella McCartney taps two summer trends in one with these silver woven espadrilles. We’ll be wearing ours with rolled boyfriend jeans. There’s room in every wardrobe for Christian Louboutin’s leopard-print espadrilles. This calfhair pair features black tassels and soft leather backing
