The Many Bags of Kourtney Kardashian

The Many Bags of Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney Kardashian is the last of the Kardashian-Jenner clan to get our in-depth bag treatment, but since she just gave birth to her third child a few days ago, we figured we had waited long enough. No time like the present, right?

Kourtney’s personal style is easily distinct from that of her sisters; she’s generally more conservative and ladylike, and she has an admiration for menswear details that mirrors that of her mother. Below, check out over three dozen of the handbags in her closet.

THP Holiday Lyst

thehautepursuitholidaylystIt’s been a while since I did a collage, so couldn’t have been happier to do one with Lyst to showcase some of the things I’d love to get this holiday season. In case you haven’t stumbled upon this genius of a site already, Lyst allows you to  collect all your fave items across the net in one simple, easy to use spot. This holiday, I want stay-true closet staples like a great nylon bomber jacket and yes, something a little more special, like a limited edition piece from the art-fashion collaboration between Sterling Ruby and Raf Simons.

In clockwise order:

Alexander Wang Bomber Jacket, Sterling Ruby x Raf Simons tee, Balenciaga Neck Choker, Philip Lim Long-Hair Clutch, Kiki De Montparnasse Voyeur Frame Bra, Woman By Common Projects Black Slip On,  Proenza Schouler Beige The Ps11 Leather Tote, Chanel Black Surpique Quilted Stitched Clutch, Saint Laurent Black Leather Mini SkirtBalenciaga Gray Wool and Angora Knit SweaterProenza Schouler Black High Heel Leather Sandal, Maison Martin Margiela Silver Defile Sculpted Twofinger Ring

New Lengths

I’m fully embracing this midi length. The trepidation of doing so until now – probably rooted in some deep ‘looking-short-in-anything-other-than-a-mini’ neuroses that to be honest, I still haven’t quite kicked. But what makes this skirt different are the slits and positioning of the cut. I feel for those of us not in the upper height echelon (literally), doing an outfit like this is a delicate balance of strategic hemlines and the right footwear. The fact that these boots are cut out helps a lot, elongating the leg and yes the body. More pictures after the jump!

Gift Guide 2014: Easy Shopping for International Customers

We know that many of our readers reside outside of the US, and even if you don’t, you may very well have someone on your holiday shopping list that does.

If you’re shipping to someone with a non-American address, all of these sites have reliable policies on shipping, duties and returns because they specialize in global shopping. Check out our picks below; if you’re shopping for someone special on US soil, you can check out our entire array of seasonal gift guides.

eBay’s Best Bags – December 3

It’s the first week of December, and we hope those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving enjoyed yourselves. We stayed out of the Black Friday frenzy and instead found you all some great bags on eBay!

eBay’s Best Bags of the Week – November 26

This the week when many of us give thanks for what we have, and then go shopping. And many of us will be spending Black Friday at home; online, and definitely on eBay.

18 Fall Bags We’re Crushing on from Instagram

18 Fall Bags We’re Crushing on from Instagram

It’s no secret that the second the cold weather hits, most of us immediately resort to an all-black wardrobe, and I’m certainly no exception. While all of us here in the office appreciate a good black bag, it’s the rich, jewel-toned colored bags (especially burgundy) that we’re really lusting over this fall. To find some of our best bags of the season, we took to our favorite social platform: none other than Instagram.

Take a look at the 18 fall bags we’re seriously crushing on from style bloggers, celebrities and fashion editors alike. Which one is your favorite? Tell us in the comments.

eBay’s Best Bags – November 12

eBay’s Best Bags – November 12

Wednesday is here, and it’s time to shop. We have been busy scouring eBay for the best bags up for auction, and we have quite a nice selection this week. A pretty pale blue Balenciaga aught our eyes, along with totes from Chanel, Bottega Veneta and Prada. The selections on eBay seemed especially interesting this week, so have fun shopping.

PurseForum Roundup – November 7

PurseForum Roundup – November 7

Here we are in November, Roundup readers! We’re not sure how it happened, but the year has flown by and here we are, counting down to the Holidays. What better way to ring in the season than with reveals, right? We did a whirlwind tour of the parts of the PurseForum we often miss, including BurberryTory Burch and Juicy Couture, in addition to dropping in on some old favorites.

Bottega Veneta Mini Intrecciato Bag

In Bottega Veneta, this little street scene caught our eye right off the bat – keaiee’s jade green messenger is not only a brilliant color on a bag we rarely see, but her little snapshot is just charming.  Also in Bottega Veneta, you will definitely want to drop into this thread to see the bonus. NYCGirl shared some gorgeous BV items, but the best part of her reveal is in the second post. Congratulations to your family, NYCGirl.

Bottega Veneta Veneta Hobo

On our way out, we dropped into the Bottega Veneta in Action thread and found this gorgeous bag from LoeweLee, an orange beauty for fall – delicious!

Balenciaga First Bag

Did you gasp? We sure did. Livia1′s brilliant Balenciaga Hamilton Rouge First is breathtaking, and we are green with envy. We found another treat in Balenciaga, this time accompanied by a wonderful photo album from Greece and Turkey. Pr1c355′s new bag is wonderful, but her trip steals the show.

Be sure to check into the November-December Purchases Thread, which is just getting started and will no doubt be bursting with fabulous bags as the days go on. Also, stop into the What’s in Your BBag thread for one of our favorite passtimes – bag snooping!

Alexander Wang Rocco Bag

In Alexander Wang, we found a pair of Roccos and a surprise – a very successful dye job on j18′s bag, reborn in stunning emerald green. The Rocco is definitely one of the smooshiest bags around and is irresistible in this color! If you are considering a one of your own, you might want to have a look at the Rocco Pros and Cons thread, where our members cover this popular bag from an insider’s perspective.

Proenza Schouler PS1 Bag

How’s this for winter? This Proenza Schouler PS1 in concrete grey is just the ticket for fall and beyond. The bag above is Catash’s first PS, and after a fair bit of deliberation, she made an excellent choice.

Proenza Schouler PS1 Tote

Also in Proenza Schouler, we found something a bit out of the ordinary – new_to_lv’s brand new tote in utterly wonderful saddle. You will want to drop into the action thread and see modeling shots of this and many other bags from PS.

Babushka Charms

We buzzed through the PurseForum for a few speed reveals. In Juicy Couture, we found Shanibabe’s adorable pair of charms, including the mini size. The rest of Juicy may be quiet, but our members still love their charms!

Burberry Bags

Ujili surprised us in Burberry, another of our quieter subforums, with a multiple reveal that included some lovely items. Ujili has been waiting for these goodies for quite a while, and thanks to eBay, we got to share in the excitement.

Tory Burch Chain Strap Clutch

In Tory Burch, we found a nice little bag revealed by ALPurseFanatic. This should that is sure to go far this fall.

Dooney & Bourke Dome Satchel

In Dooney and Bourke, Ahiko posted a new bag in a luscious chestnut brown, this time a Sabrina. MiaBorsa posted a double reveal for us, and her two bags are a pretty pair to be sure! Tlo did a bit of shopping and shared several reveals, all gorgeous!

Goyard St. Louis Tote

In Goyard, Hikkichan’s gorgeous new St. Louis brightened up our day, and we found some nice modeling shots in the Action Thread, too!

Before we go, we wanted to share some conversations from the Wardrobe. Drop into the Trends You’d Like to See Go Away thread for some fun memories of outfits you may rather forget. BakeaCookie’s StyleBook thread is going full steam ahead, and Budgetastic’s request for help building a casual wardrobe is proving to be full of great style advice.

Thank you for joining us for this fall reveal roundup! We wanted to bring you plenty of bags to start of the shopping season, and hope you enjoyed them.

Color Story: 15 Bags in Lovely Winter White

Color Story: 15 Bags in Lovely Winter White

By now, everyone knows it’s totally acceptable to wear white any time of year, no matter the date’s position relative to Labor Day. Today, I’m here to tell you why you should and offer some handbags in support of my point of view.

A woman with a white bag looks innately luxurious in the same way that a woman carrying a clutch looks luxurious; because it’s a less practical choice than some of the other available options, that woman’s life must have an ease to it that’s not available to everyone. That impression isn’t always in sync with reality, of course, but it’s an undeniably elegant look to those who put in a little extra effort to pull it off.

Below, we’ve picked more than a dozen of our favorites, from functional totes to fuzzy fur clutches. They’re worth the slight inconvenience, especially in the doldrums of winter greys and navys. Remember, though–never rub your white bag against blue denim.

PurseForum Roundup – October 24

PurseForum Roundup – October 24

Friday is finally here, Roundup readers! October is winding down, but we’re are ramping up because we love fall. This week we pay a visit to HermèsBalenciaga and the Playground. We also found a wonderful reveal in Valentino that you will not want to miss. Make the jump to find out what else awaits.

The 10 Most Important Bags in Modern Handbag History

The 10 Most Important Bags in Modern Handbag History

It’s become trendy for designer brands to emphasize their histories and heritages in an attempt to add value to their products and convince consumers that their prices are worth it, but when you look back at fashion history, there are a few modern handbags that stand out for the ways that their existences have shaped the accessories industry and how women (and men!) perceive, carry and shop for bags. As part of our continuing countdown to National Handbag Day, we’ve made a case for the best and brightest below.

Balenciaga Shows Restrained, Exotic Bags for Spring 2015

Balenciaga Shows Restrained, Exotic Bags for Spring 2015

In his seasons at Balenciaga so far, Alexander Wang has set a sporty but intensely luxurious precedent for himself, generally cast in neutral shades and finished with inventive-but-modern hardware. Balenciaga Spring 2015 very much follows in that short tradition, with top-handled frame bags that might also be clutches. (Or might only be clutches?)

Wang placed a limited number of bags in the runway show, which is also his usual MO at his eponymous brand, and although they were carried like clutches, it seemed like maybe they were actually upside-down top handles with large metal frame structure. On the other hand, maybe they’re meant to be carried exactly as they were shown, with the beautiful chain “handle” and metal frame simply meant to provide an unexpected contrast to the graceful loops of leather or crocodile that make up the body of the clutch.

Either way, check out the bags below and let us know which way you think they’re supposed to be carried.

PurseForum Roundup – September 26

PurseForum Roundup – September 26

This week flew by! We hope you had a great one. It’s our last PurseForum Roundup of September, and we’re going out with a bang–a whole heap of reveals, plus a peek at one of our favorite threads! This week, we reveal some small bags from Proenza SchoulerBottega Veneta and Balenciaga and so much more. Thanks for joining us!


Balenciaga Bag

We found two very smart bags in Balenciaga this week, both in the Early Anniversary Reveal thread from Maice. Her reveal of a pretty lilac Mini and a dolma Twiggy is fun and informative, particularly for those wondering what you can fit in these less-common Bal bags. Happy anniversary, Maice! Rainneday also shared a sweet reveal of similarly colored bag, this time a City in cherry.

Balenciaga City Bag Purple

On our way out, we spotted a stunning bag we missed earlier this month–London 411′s gorgeous sapphire City; her reveal thread includes plenty of photos that will make you wish this bag was in your collection! For more incredible Balenciaga bags, you can stop into the busy September/October Purchases thread, which is going strong and showing no signs of slowing down. If you are considering classic black bag, be sure not to miss this pretty Town from pinaybaglover.


Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Next, we dropped into Rebecca Minkoff and found a reveal of a wonderful Cupid in a color very aptly named “twilight sky.” Heart Star was kind enough to share family photos, and her thread has plenty of bags to enjoy. We really love the brushed gunmetal hardware on this new bag! BeachBagGal also got a brand new bag this month, and it’s a pretty neutral MAM that will go with everything!

Rebecca Minkoff MAC and Espadrilles

If you are not familar with Rebecca Minkoff, be sure to check out the the Action thread, where we found a fabulous modeling shot of Kpoxa kicking back with her mini MAC in a color perfect for fall.


Margarita and Guacamole

We don’t know about you, but National Guacamole Day slipped right by us again this year. Fortunately, CreativelySwank was on top of things and shared this absolutely luscious vision of what this special day is all about. Guacamole and margaritas! Roundup regulars know we can’t stay away from The Kitchen’s I Ate This thread, and this is a perfect example of the reason why!


Bottega Veneta Collection

We dropped into Bottega Veneta this week to see if anyone has picked up anything new and found that dintegrity started a thread to reveal her new mini messenger –Bottega Veneta’s Disco Bag (which is fabulous) and as a bonus, we got to compare several small handy bags and got quite a lot of thinking done about our next mini. Also in Bottega Veneta, there is quite a buzz about the new fragrance, The Knot, with our members weighing on their take. What do you think?


Proenza Schouler Tiny PS1 Bag

Speaking of sweet little bags, look what we found in Proenza Schouler this week! We love this petite lemon gem of a bag from member COPENHAGEN, what a treat! Makeupmama also got a new bag, and we have to say that this anniversary present really takes the cake. You can find plenty of fantastic photos of this concrete grey treasure in her reveal thread, where we fell hard for this color.


Fendi 2Jours and Celine Phantom Luggage Tote

When you find your favorite bag style, it’s magic. Ryrybaby12 has it bad for embossed croc, and this lovely family photo of her new Fendi 2Jours and Céline Phantom Luggage Tote says it all.

Fendi Karlito Charms

If you are a fan of Fendi, then you know about the brand’s whimsical charms, and if you know about the charms, then you know that Karlito is the holy grail for charm collectors. This week, BagMonsta stopped every Bag Bug charm lover in her tracks with her trio of Karlito charms. We love a family photo, and the only thing better than Karl Largerfeld is three furry Karls finding a happy home!

Well, that’s how we’ll end September here at the PurseForum Roundup. We hope you will join us next week for another edition of our weekly romp through our Forum. Have a great week ahead, and we look forward to seeing you right back here next Friday!

When you find your favorite bag style, it’s magic. Ryrybaby12 has it bad for embossed croc, and this lovely family photo of her new Fendi 2Jours and Céline Phantom Luggage Tote says it all.

Fendi Karlito Charms

If you are a fan of Fendi, then you know about the brand’s whimsical charms, and if you know about the charms, then you know that Karlito is the holy grail for charm collectors. This week, BagMonsta stopped every Bag Bug charm lover in her tracks with her trio of Karlito charms. We love a family photo, and the only thing better than Karl Largerfeld is three furry Karls finding a happy home!

Well, that’s how we’ll end September here at the PurseForum Roundup. We hope you will join us next week for another edition of our weekly romp through our Forum. Have a great week ahead, and we look forward to seeing you right back here next Friday!

BALENCIAGA SS15

Balenciaga backstage

Alexander Wang sat the tone right before the show with Moody Good singing “It made your heart just skip a beat”, hoping that the audience would feel the same after the presentation. And if you’re a fan of cycling, you might really like this collection, which is made for speed. Leading the mood were sunglasses teamed up with bicycle chains worn as bracelets. To match the sporty vibe with the heritage of Balenciaga, Wang re-created the fishnet dresses that we’ve seen earlier from Nicolas Ghesquière  (AW11). Still, It’s not an easy task always being compared with Ghesquière (well, he’s my favourite designer so I’m definitely partial)..But Wang definitely has something going on!

PurseForum Roundup – September 12

PurseForum Roundup – September 12

We are about to hit the midway mark of September, PurseForum Roundup readers, and we hope you had an enjoyable month so far. Thank you for stopping by as we make our way around the PurseForum, highlighting conversations we hope will interest you. This week, we visit BalenciagaThe Glass SlipperPrada and more. Thank’s for joining us!


Givenchy Pandora with Bag Bug

Our Glass Slipper subforum is the home of everything shoe-related (or, more precisely, everything shoe-related that is not Christian Louboutin, which has its own dedicated subforum). This week we visited the What a PAIR thread, a place for our members to show off their favorite shoe and bag matchups. Authenticplease got creative with her olive Givenchy Pandora and pretty raspberry Zara pumps, rounding out the look off with fantastic Ray-Bans and a Fendi Bag Bug.

Also, be sure to catch arnott’s pairing of cute Tory Burch sneakers with a Coach messenger bag. Elsewhere in the Glass Slipper this week, we caught up with the Aquazzura thread. We found that one lucky member has already selected a pair and reports that they are wonderful. Also be sure to check out the Best Boots for a Real Winter thread, because soon it’ll be time to heed that advice!


Prada Saffiano Satchel

What a perfect Prada classic satchel for fall. Cvlshopaholic posted this saffiano Bowler and it’s a great choice for a first Prada. Lately, this brand’s subforum has been all about the totes, and we found this brilliant red saffiano tote in a quickie reveal from arviereyes. Don’t forget, like all of our designer subforums, Prada has a wonderful reference library, which includes a thread dedicated to our members’ modeling shots.

Prada Saffiano Bag Family

Prada also has a quiet but lovely collection thread, where we found this charming family photo from labamse. Very inspiring.


Beauty Haul Burberry

We all have our favorite threads and areas of interest on the PurseForum, and the Beauty Bar is undeniably one of the most popular. Maybe it’s the myriad exchanges and Random Act of Kindness events, or maybe it’s the simple fact that buying beauty products is good, clean fun.

This week we found some interesting selections in the Recent Purchases thread (which has been very busy this summer!), including this photogenic collection from Misstake7198. Also be sure to check out the Rants and Raves section of the Beauty Bar for a no-holds-barred look at some of the products vying for a piece of your beauty budget.


Balenciaga Velo Bag

Balenciaga is another brand with a jam-packed Reference Library at the ready to help you with your bag purchases. Also in Balenciaga, the September-October Purchases thread looks to be in full swing, and we found this stunning metallic edge Velo from Prada123; we are sure this thread will be a busy one, so stop in often!

Balenciaga Apple Green First Bag

We also spotted this happy apple-green gem from Catash, a holy grail purchase that was quickly accompanied by this City bag in cumin; what can we say, the girl had a coupon! And two bags are better than one, right?


Valentino Ombre Pumps

Our visit to the Glass Slipper had us feeling shoozy, so we stopped by Valentino, where we know we can always find some rocking Rockstuds. These incredible ombre beauties from ladyjeye have to be some of the prettiest shoes we have seen on the PurseForum, and you will be pleased to know there is an action shot as well! As we mentioned, we are all about totes these days, and this deep forest green version of the Rockstud really hit a home run. Congratulations to Phiomega for scoring such a winner – not bad for a first Valentino!


Butterfly and Flowers

That’s it for this week’s edition of the PurseForum Roundup, friends. We could not resist closing this post with this sweet photograph of a butterfly visiting marigolds in Sweetpea83′s colorful garden. This treasure is from the Random Picture thread in General Discussion, an interesting place to visit where anything goes!

Happy Weekend everyone! We hope it’s wonderful, and that we’ll see you right back here next week for another peek at the happenings on the PurseForum!

OH MY GOSH

Look at her…

Butt. But seriously – we watched this on repeat. Maybe 10 times. OKAY, 15. Vogue went backstage at Alexander Wang to give some models a dance lesson with Nicki Minaj.

In defense of the model wearing the Balenciaga boots, Brie says they are really heavy…

Nicki, you can come by the Studio anytime.


By studio

Yes! Bags

We can’t go on talking about fall fashion without calling out one of the best parts of the whole thing: new bags.

I can definitely blame back to school nostalgia for my always being on the hunt for a new handbag in the fall. At the Studio, we looked everywhere to find some of our favorites for the season (and a classic with an irresistible color thrown into the mix).

These are the bags we are willing to invest in – or just dream about : Proenza Schouler, Rochas, Mansur Gavriel, Céline, and Balenciaga.

What are you carrying this season? What is on your bag wish list?

50+ Bags on the Arms of Our Favorite Supermodels

50+ Bags on the Arms of Our Favorite Supermodels

[Editor's Note: This week, the PurseBlog staff is out of the office to enjoy the last little bit of summer. We'll return after Labor Day, but in the meantime, we'll be running both new posts and a few of our favorites from the past few months to get you ready for fall.]

Models and great handbags go together like peanut butter and jelly. Some of our all-time favorite collection profiles have come at the hands of supers like Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss and Alessandra Ambrosio, and if there were a photo agency dedicated purely to documenting their daily outfits, we’d gladly delve into the handbag closets of even more models. Because there isn’t, though, we’ve decided to put together all that we could find from five of our favorite supers whose collections we’ve yet to dissect: Karlie Kloss, Chrissy Teigen, Kate Upton, Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel.

The results include over 50 gorgeous designer bag, including some super rare exotics (mostly courtesy of Ms. Upton, who seems to have used entire paychecks to buy things even most handbag lovers can barely dream of). The level to which these ladies are both genetically and sartorially blessed may cause a little bit of envy, but once you get past that, there’s certainly a lot of pretty going on below.

The Best of the Best from #PBWIMB

The Best of the Best from #PBWIMB

Over the past couple of months, you guys have submitted a seemingly endless number pictures of your designer bags and all of their contents. We have so much fun looking at them, we decided to round up some of our absolute favorites. You might be surprised what some people keep in their bags, but one thing’s for sure: there’s no shortage of Chanel and Céline in this roundup!

Take a look at who made our list of the best of the best #PBWIMB pics, and continue to send us your pictures for your chance to be featured! Be sure to follow us on Instagram to follow more of our handbag adventures.

Want It Wednesday: Mini Bags Aren’t Just for Summer

Want It Wednesday: Mini Bags Aren’t Just for Summer

Mini bags are most often associated with warm weather; after all, who doesn’t want her hands free during the season’s outdoor activities? They’re just as useful during the fall, though, especially when coat weather comes around and regular shoulder bags compete with your outerwear for shoulder real estate. Now that basically every popular bag comes in a mini size, along with all the bags that were designed to be mini from the beginning, your choices are vast no matter the season. For this edition of Want It Wednesday, the team has enumerated its favorites below.

Where’s Gisele?

Everywhere, it seems.

My favorite Brazilian is making a serious impact on the fall campaigns. She sported a faux buzz cut for Balenciaga (I mourned the loss of her perfect beach waves for a brief moment), sparkled in Pucci, went au naturel for Sonia Rykiel and now she’s giving us some real je ne sais quoi for Isabel Marant.

She’s one of very few models that despite being pretty commercial, she still has this totally cool and chic vibe. Does that mean she’s mastered the art of the super model today?

20 Burgundy Bags to Start Your Fall Wardrobe

20 Burgundy Bags to Start Your Fall Wardrobe

Burgundy may be the perfect fall color; it’s rich, versatile and basically a neutral, but it’s not quite as obvious a choice as an actual neutral. Black, grey, tan, navy–burgundy looks flawless with all of them, and depending on the undertones of the particular shade, it can read as anything from a particularly warm brown to just a shade off aubergine. All of that, of course, makes it a perfect choice for a new handbag.

Burgundy (or, as everyone suddenly decided to call it, oxblood) had a huge fall last year, and based on the deliveries currently rolling into stores, the industry’s appreciation for the color hasn’t abated. If you’re all stocked up on traditional neutrals and want something a little bit more interesting in your wardrobe that will still be appropriate for frequent use, we’ve got 20 options below, in a variety of shapes and price ranges.

Instagram Handbag Celebrity: @mwanwan

Instagram Handbag Celebrity: @mwanwan

Having beautiful accessories will get you well on your way to having a great Instagram collection, but taking great pictures to showcase those beautiful accessories is just as important. This week, we’ve chosen one of our favorite Instagram collections: that of Michelle Wan, better known as @mwanwan. Not only does @mwanwan have more Chanel and Hermès bags than we could possibly count, but she manages to stage her pictures perfectly for an absolutely gorgeous result.

Mwanwan is a style blogger from Hong Kong who has a serious love for designer handbag and shoes. (Our kind of girl). Apart from the pictures of her accessories, you’ll find plenty of pictures of how she styles her bags and jewelry with different outfits, which is something we, as followers, love to see.

We selected some of our absolute favorites (it was really difficult not to pick them all) from Wan’s account, so take a look below and see for yourself. To see more of her feed, head straight to @mwanwan’s Instagram or her style blog, Mwanwan by Michelle.

The Many Bag Of InStyle Magazine’s Editors

The Many Bag Of InStyle Magazine’s Editors

We love our glossies as much as any fashion people, and one of the industry’s major magazines is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year. InStyle Magazine launched in 1994 with Barbra Streisand on its cover, and since its inception, the magazine has grown its global reach to over 21 million subscribers. With Ariel Foxman at the helm, InStyle has made waves in the fashion sphere with an approachable attitude along with an ever-expanding online presence.

This year’s September issue is the biggest in the brand’s two-decade history. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary, Julia Roberts graces this milestone cover, which will hit newsstands this Friday, August 15th.

Recently, we spent the day with 20 InStyle editors (to celebrate the 20th Anniversary, natch!) to see which bags they carry to work. From Louis Vuitton, to Balenciaga, to lots of Saint Laurent, take a look at the many bags of InStyle Magazine’s editors.

Style Story / Melissa

Melissa lives between Athens and Mykonos where she runs fashion stores and takes care of her brand, Wildwood. I was there on vacation but I was so inspired by Greece that I couldn’t help but make a little photoshoot with her.

I love the heavy silks, the colors, the clothes inspired by summer and even more, her commitment to quality (amazing) and price (affordable) – let’s just say I came back with heavy luggage! Unfortunately for the moment, you can’t buy on her website (but you can take a look at the collections!) but I hope this post will motivate her ;)

All the clothes come from Wildwood, except the for the traditional Greek tunic (so cool, I brought back three), the basket (Balenciaga), the glasses (The Row). Her bracelets come from Aurelie Bidermann and the blue eye is a traditional Greek good luck charm. The earrings are from Maria Black (here again, I totally copied her and bought the same). Oh, and her shoes are from her other brand, Isapera. Yeah – the girl is busy ;)

Lady Gaga Totes a Furry Balenciaga Runway Bag

Lady Gaga Totes a Furry Balenciaga Runway Bag

Here’s Lady Gaga, leaving her “Jazz at Lincoln Center” performance with the legendary Tony Bennett, dressed like a Jazz Age vamp and carrying a Balenciaga Cable Strap Fur Shopping Tote. These bags debuted on Balenciaga’s Fall 2014 runway, and you can currently find a black calfskin leather version for $2,055 at Neiman Marcus.

Her ladyship has an eclectic collection of designer handbags that includes a vast arsenal of “customized” Hermes Birkins, some of which will undoubtedly end up in a museum somewhere, someday. You can easily suss out which designers are her favorites by browsing “The Many Bags of Lady Gaga.”

Balenciaga Fall 2014 Colors

Balenciaga Fall 2014 Colors

One of the best things about the PurseForum is the vast amounts of information users share with one another. Whether it’s a reveal of a new bag or coveted news from sales associates, the PurseForum is like no other place online. When I was browsing the forums this week, I stumbled upon Balenciaga’s Fall 2014 Colors.

These colors will be seen in stores on Balenciaga’s classic bags in a few weeks, but until you see them on the bags you know and love, take a peek at these swatches of the upcoming colors. I’m very interested in seeing the metallic Gris Aluminum in person; I think I’d love it on a Balenciaga Hip Bag.

Other colors include Noir, Charbon, Bleu Persan, Rouge Ambre, and Beige Oryx. Keep checking Balenciaga online to see when these new colors will show up on your favorite bags. Shop Balenciaga now.
