The fall collections may already be hitting the shelves, but the summer days are longer than ever – and so are their steamy nights. There’s something about high summer that makes me want to sparkle just a little more. Sure, shimmering bronzer enhances your skin, but who needs it when your bag can do all the sun-beaming and candlelight-catching shining for you? From oil-slick leathers to opalescent metallics to glimmering python, add a little shine to your collection, stat.
