You may not lead a double life like Homeland's Carrie Mathison, but this bag is sure fit for someone who does. The faux-leather tote comes with a removable interior pouch that, when kept in, divides the bag into three separate storage compartments for the ultimate organizer. Or, take the pouch out for those days when you just need to throw everything in and go.

By now, you've probably seen your fair share of cheetah-print shoes, but these slip-ons are a step ahead of the rest with their extra-foam-cushioned footbed and flexible, shock-absorbing rubber soles. So, what does that really mean? Let's just say you'll be able to walk all day in these shoes—no Band-Aids required.

Embrace the comfort and ease of a sweaterdress—without the shapelessness—with this figure-flattering knit cotton-blend dress from Simply Vera Vera Wang. The fitted bodice creates the illusion of a smaller waist, and the slight flare at the hem adds to a silhouette that's also kind to wider hips.

When this cross-body purse isn’t thrown casually over your shoulder, simply tuck in the gold chain strap to convert it into an elegant clutch for a dress code that's more night than day. One purchase, two different ways to wear it—whose wallet doesn't love that?

Rich colors and an eye-catching geometric twist on classic herringbone make this fitted skirt ready to face even the dreariest day. Plus, you'll be thankful for the midi length when the temperature starts to drop.

For those cool days when the office heating isn't quite right, this mosaic-patterned nylon blouse is lightweight enough to layer underneath a cardigan without looking too bulky. On the other hand, with its breezy cut and three-quarter sleeves, you can comfortably wear it alone if the temperature goes to the other extreme.
$28 | TheLimited.com
A basic knit sweater gets dressed up for the holidays with a delicate lace-front overlay that adds a touch of shimmer, while a ballet neckline and raglan sleeves keep it demure.

If you find yourself reaching for the play-it-safe grays, consider this hot pink Worthington number. While the washable cotton-spandex blend makes it a sensible choice, the well-placed zippers make it a, ahem, zippier-than-usual closet staple.
$17 | JCPenny.com
This season, glam rock-inspired fashion is taking center stage, as you can see in this excellent example: a faux-leather studded tote with a detachable shoulder strap and three interior pockets.
$50 | DailyLook.com
Take one Fair Isle pattern, convert the typical white wool to black, slim the silhouette just a bit, add a zip of chartreuse, and you've got one very wearable weekend sweater.
