Coat, bag, shoes. To me, they're the holy trinity of investment purchases and the quickest, simplest route to pulling together a polished look, especially during the winter. I'm feeling very lucky to be adding new versions of each of these staples to my wardrobe. First, there's this cobalt blue cocoon coat, sure to brighten up any gray day (and you know how much I love cocoon coats).

These Sam Edelman 'Alvin' smoking slippers from StyleNV are going to be in heavy rotation this season too. I've been wanting to try the smoking slipper trend for a while now and just haven't found the perfect pair. But the burgundy hue and pony-hair fabrication give this pair a casual-luxe vibe that complements everything from skinny jeans to wool trousers. A winter-appropriate alternative to the ballet flat, for sure. (Check out StyleNV for other colours and a plethora of other Sam Edelman styles.)

And last but certainly not least, I'm absolutely delighted with my new Onna Ehrlich 'Chloe' bag. The neutral taupe hue, the structured shape, the crossbody chain strap (tucked away here) and top-handle design—instant classic. It's the ideal size and shape for weekends, fitting my regular wallet and a pair of leather gloves in its surprisingly roomy interior.

The bag was a generous gift from the Nigerian-born, LA-based designer herself when she visited Vancouver a couple weeks ago. Ehrlich's classic yet on-trend designs use fine leathers sourced from Brazil and Italy, and sometimes incorporate her Nigerian heritage. (The laser cut pattern on this clutch, for example, is inspired by a Nigerian textile pattern.) Although her luxurious handbags have earned her celebrity fans in Hollywood, in Canada she remains relatively unknown but is definitely a name to watch.

    1. I was actually surprised by how roomy the bag is. Usually I switch to a smaller wallet for my small weekend bags, but this one fit my regular Ferragamo wallet, keys, phone, lipstick, hand lotion, and leather gloves. All the essentials I need for weekend jaunts. :-)
