Orla Kiely Popbacks at Nordstrom Rack

A few pieces from the Color Bloc Croc Embossed collection have popped back into stock at Nordstrom Rack (see the original FW16 collection here and here). These pieces were originally sold out when the sale debuted at HauteLook a few days ago, but now they are back in stock with only one left available of each style. 

$299.97 (originally $534)

$267 (originally $534)

$249.97 (originally $440)

Orla Kiely SS17 Stem: Embossed Flower Leather in Indigo and Orange

The Embossed Flower Leather is available in the colorways Indigo and Orange this season (see past season colors Black, Sand, Sky, Daffodil,  and Walnut). 



I believe this is the first time the Zip Messenger has been available in the Embossed Flower Leather. It looks like it would make a lovely work bag.



Medium Zip Wallet
I adore these little wallets. I do have this style in the Poppy Cat print, but I find that I baby it so much because I'm afraid the laminated canvas would stain easily. I feel like the leather on these wallets would make them more durable and easier to clean. I have a Sixties Stem Punched Leather Card Holder and it has held up quite well over the years - I haven't had to baby it at all and it still looks in nearly perfect condition.

Orla Kiely SS17 Stem: Giant Linear Stem Print in Marine

The Giant Linear Stem print is available in the colorway Marine this season, a lovely deep blue with orange accents (see past season colors Dandelion, Apple, CamelSky Blue, Stone, Liquorice, Nutmeg, Twilight Blue, Vermillion, Kelp, and Navy).

I quite love these Large Holdalls that are available this season. This and the Satchels are my favorites from the Stem collection. Initially, I thought these might be replacing the Zip Shopper this season, but it looks like that style will be available in the Love Birds print.


Midi Sling $152 and Mini Sling $123

Backpack $152 and Small Backpack $135

My favorites from this sale are the Textured Leather bags in the Berry colorway. I got a late start on this sale and kinda bummed that I missed out on the Sycamore Leaf Printed Leather Willow Handbag (I only ever saw this bag on the UK site - HauteLook is the only place I've ever seen it sold in the US. So if anyone has any leads on where else I can find this bag in the US, please let me know!)

Orla Kiely SS17 Stem: Summer Flower Print in Sunshine and Sunset

The first of Orla Kiely's Spring/Summer 2017 collection has arrived! This season's newest print is called the Summer Flower and it's available in the colorways Sunshine and Sunset. Overall, I prefer the Sunset version because I think the orange and pink flowers pop a bit more. 

It's been awhile since we've seen a larger version of Orla Kiely's classic shoulder bag. It reminds me a lot of one of her earlier (and probably most popular) Classic Stem print bags. I love this larger size and feel it would be great for both work and running errands. 


Also available in a Mini Sling size $123

This is another design I'm really excited about. I like this version better than last season's for a couple of reasons. For one, I prefer the printed shoulder strap here to last year's cotton webbing. The front closure is also made of leather, which is a nice new detail. This bag's shape and design does remind me a lot of the Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis (a bag that will perpetually be on my luxury wish list) - functional, versatile, and with a cute top handle to boot.

I would probably actually prefer the smaller version of the satchel, but I do wish it had the top handle.  And I really like the Sunshine colorway in this style.





I love these smaller wallets, but pattern placement on them is so hit-or-miss, as seen here on the Sunset version. I kinda wish they would shrink down the pattern so they would translate better to the smaller accessories.
