Francine Ballard's Rantings of the Accessory-Obsessed.
All Chanel, all day. The perfect ensembles for every occasion. Le sigh. -RS
FYI: ELLE’s TOP 10 Accessories Trends and Designers for FW2010
Not on this list, but worth mentioning in my opinion: Skinny belts, corsets, driving gloves, cuffs, sautoir necklaces, cat-eye frames, leg warmers, stacked (square) heels, kitten heels, saddle shoes, pony hair, over-sized clutches and spats (worn over pumps to create a boot effect). Photos T/K.

BAGS GALORE- ELIE TAHARI GETS IN THE GAME
On the heels of a successful test-run with Bergdorf and Neiman’s this season, Tahari has decided to up the ante, and jump in to the accessories game full force this Fall, focusing on handbags in a big way.
Tomorrow, Bergdorf Goodman’s Linda Fargo and the infamous Joe Zee of ELLE magazine will host a launch party celebrating their commitment to the category. Tahari tells WWD that, “Women are looking for exciting and new [handbags] below $1,000”. Right you are- Elie. (We should know.)
The Fall collection features strappy metal chain and suede pochettes, and will be priced moderately between $298-398.
