Bea’s 2014 Holiday Wish List

Bea’s 2014 Holiday Wish List

If you asked anyone in the PurseBlog offices how to describe my personal style, I’d bet money that one of the first three words they’d use is “minimal.” When it comes to clothing and accessories, I like clean lines and neutral tones, and I’m a sucker for a good structured bag.

My holiday wish list could have been made up entirely of bags I’m lusting over, but I decided to mix in a few other things I’d like to find under the tree as well. Take a look below and see what’s on my wish list this year, and feel free to buy any or all of them for me if you’re feeling generous toward strangers on the Internet.

DECEMBER PICKS

WishfulThinkingDecember

Vintage Moroccan rug collected by The Line, coat from Miu Miu, scented candle from Fornasetti, watch from Rolex, earring from Stone Paris, turtleneck from Jardin des Orangers, lingerie from Kiki de Montparnasse and bag from Fendi.

ART BASEL MIAMI 2014 – diary

hbz-street-style-art-basel-day2-Gala-Gonzalez-lg

My time in the States is coming to an end, it has been a wonderful week where I have been able to catch up with my friends, soak up in the sun, recharge batteries for the new year and also get some work done! When you are heading to Art Basel you need to up your game and go for a bold look that you feel comfortable with and that at the same time you are making an statement. I decided to wear a Current Elliott Shirt , leather Topshop Unique pants , Fendi Bag and Gianvito Rossi flats. For more laidback occasions I rather go for my new favourite Stylestalker white top (similar) and some Levis shorts for instance. Also, when you are thrown into this long haul flights I will slip into something that would make my journey more pleasant such as some AG Jeans and my all time basics, Superga sneakers. Then, once you hit Miami, its all about sunnies like mine from HipsteepsHelmut Lang and Robin collection swimwear and wearing printed jumpsuits like the Self-portrait ones. Today I’m showing you a tiny insight of what it has been going on these past couple of days, hope you enjoy it! 

Mi estancia en los Estados Unidos tiene los días contados, ha sido una semana increíble en la que he visto a mis amigas, he podido tomar el sol, recargar pilas para el año nuevo y por supuesto trabajar! Cuando vas a eventos de tal magnitud como Art Basel necesitas estar a la altura de las circunstancias y mostrar un look acorde con el evento al que acudes. Yo llevé camisa de Current Elliot, shorts de piel de Topshop Unique , bolso de Fendi y sandalias de Gianvito Rossi. Para looks más relajados prefiero ponerme mi nuevo top favorito de Stylestalker (similar) con unos shorts de Levis por ejemplo. Del mismo modo, cuando debes pasar horas y horas en vuelos transatlánticos no me lo pienso dos veces y llevo cosas cómodas que harán que mi viaje sea lo más agradable posible como mis vaqueros de AG Jeans y mis Superga sin lugar a dudas. Luego una vez llegas a Miami, el chip cambia y lo único que llevas son gafas como las mías de Hipsteeps, ropa de baño de Helmut Lang y Robin collection y monos con estampados como los de Self-portrait. Hoy os quiero mostrar un pequeño avance de lo que ha pasado estos últimos días, espero que os guste!

Check Out Last Week’s Best Celebrity Bags, Including Meryl Streep’s Dolce & Gabbana

Last week’s holiday travel rush had celebs busting out their biggest and best travel bags, totes and duffels. But this week, it’s business as usual. Some celebs are favoring the minis, some are still ferrying around their gigantic Louis Vuitton and Givenchy bags, and Meryl (FRIGGIN’) Streep was actually spotted carrying the same bag we saw on Kesha’s arm last week. That’s right, Meryl Streep and Kesha have something in common, besides both being blond and amazing.

PurseForum Roundup – Black Friday Edition

PurseForum Roundup – Black Friday Edition

Happy Friday! For those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving, Happy Day After Thanksgiving! It’s a big shopping day, and if you were out among the crowds, we feel for you. No matter how you spent your day, welcome to the PurseForum Roundup – kick back, relax, and come on in.

Hibiscus Flowers

This week, we stopped in the Kitchen because we love it in there, and because in the States, it’s Thanksgiving. We are liking the Non-Traditional Thanksgiving Foods thread, and of course the I Ate This thread had some tasty-looking treats this week. (Hint: tacos!)

In Home & Garden, we thought we might find some snow in the Garden Photographs thread, but we found authenticplease’s beautiful Amaryllis instead. Home & Garden is also a great place to get decorating ideas for the upcoming holidays, but we will wait until after Thanksgiving to delve into those.

Mansur Gavriel Opening Ceremony Bucket Bag

Isn’t this a great bag for the holiday season? We found this pic in Chanel, of all places. Many of our forums have a “cheating on” thread, and this Mansur Gavriel bag was hiding in plain sight in the “Shhhhh….We won’t tell” thread. Though poobag’s new bag is kind of hard to keep secret…

Chanel Handbag Collection

This dreamy family photo is the icing on the cake in Annlovebag’s reveal. One of these bags is brand new, and joined this happy group just this week. Can you guess which one? We’re not telling but we will say this: we love it when Christmas comes early to the PurseForum. Be sure to catch Illya’s reveal, too: a perfect WOC for the season!

Christian Louboutin Strass Sandal

Do you know what “strassing” is? If not, you definitely need to visit the CL DIY thread in Christian Louboutin. Our members breathe new, sparkly life into their Christian Louboutin shoes with zillions of crystals, and the results are quite astonishing – particularly when one takes into account the patience required for such a task. Don’t believe us? Consider what jlbair undertook with these Balotas. Visit the thread to see the finished product.

Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps

Isn’t this a great moment captured? Glamourdoll clearly fell hard for these Manolo BBs (AKA the perfect shoe) and could not wait to share. This slice of heaven is brought to you from the Manolos thread in the Glass Slipper, where our members celebrate this iconic brand. Congratulations, Glamourdoll!

Chanel Bag and Bruschetta

Which looks more delicious: the bag, the food, or the wine? Luccibag has updated her collection thread in the Bag Showcase, and wow, she has been busy! This photo is pure purse perfection, and we really can’t decide which part of it we want more (the purse). While you are in theBag Showcase, be sure to pay a visit to silviap90′s noir collection. You will not want to miss this stunning collection of black bags, trust us. 

Though National Handbag Day is but a distant memory, Yoshi1296′s collection thread ricochets us back to that much-beloved holiday. (Was it really almost two months ago?) Ah, memories. There is so much to see in the Bag Showcase, and we hope you make it a regular stop when you visit the PurseForum.

Fendi Monster Tote

Heaven help us, we love the Fendi Monster Tote. And this blue sings to us–as Roundup Readers know, to us, this color is everything! This fun bag belongs to lumkeikei, and the truth is: we want it!

Fendi Peekaboo Bag

If your taste is a bit more conservative, you will love this Peekaboo–midnight blue is nothing to be sneezed at, and we think johnygaga made a great choice with her new bag. We have to hand it to Fendi for truly offering something for everyone, as this sparkly reveal from stjohnnut so prettily illustrates.

Fendi By The Way Bag and Monster Wallet

Three’s a charm in Fendi this week! We just had to add this third photo, a great shot from nikimenz–this has to be Fendi’s version of the best of both worlds!

That’s a wrap, dear friends. For many of us, this week is all about giving thanks and being grateful, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank YOU for being a part of our PurseForum and PurseBlog family. Without you, well, we would still have fun looking at purses, but you make it so much better! We love sharing our passions with you and we are so grateful that you share with us. We wish you and all your loved ones joy, peace and happiness in the upcoming holiday season. See you next week!

Check Out Our Sneak Preview of Fendi’s Gorgeous Spring 2015 Collection

It would be impossible to overstate how much everyone on the PurseBlog team adored the Fendi Spring 2015 handbags when they debuted on the runway in September, and now that we’ve gotten a chance to take an up-close-and-personal look a the designs in the Fendi showroom, we’re even more smitten. Luckily, we come bearing photos.

The bags are just as lovely in person as we had hoped, including plenty of exotics and embellishments to make these seasonal pieces even more special. Below, take a look at all the goodies Fendi has to offer in the coming months. We suggest you start stuffing money under your mattress now.

Want It Wednesday: Fuzziness of All Kinds

Want It Wednesday: Fuzziness of All Kinds

Fall and winter are a time for rich textures, and it doesn’t get much richer than fur, whether it’s real or faux. For this Want It Wednesday, we’ve picked our favorite fuzzy pieces on the market right now, all of which we wish we had in our own closets for the months ahead.

eBay’s Best Bags of the Week – October 29

eBay’s Best Bags of the Week – October 29

Our last eBay Roundup for the month of October is a great one. We have a surprising Fendi 2Jours, a smart little vintage Gucci shoulder bag, a Prada shopper just in time for shopping season and so much more. Happy shopping!

Disclaimer: As always, caution is crucial when buying from third party sellers. Although we strive to find the best auctions to feature, we don’t endorse or guarantee any eBay sellers or auctions, and therefore cannot guarantee the authenticity of any particular piece.

12 Bags to Finish Your Halloween Costume Perfectly

12 Bags to Finish Your Halloween Costume Perfectly

We can turn almost any occasion into an excuse to shop for handbags, and Halloween isn’t even a particular challenge. We already found more than a dozen bags that are just straight-up creepy no matter the context, and today we’re back with another 12 that fit particularly well with particular costumes. Is it an objectively smart idea to spend a couple thousand bucks on a bag for your costume? No, but personally, I’ve rarely let that stop me from doing anything I wanted to do, for better or for worse.

ELLE Magazine Posed Fall’s Best Accessories with an Adorable Piglet

ELLE Magazine Posed Fall’s Best Accessories with an Adorable Piglet

We found out a couple of weeks ago just how fond you guys are of combining your loves of pets and bags, and as it turns out, the staff at ELLE is right there with you. Recently, the magazine styled an otherwise straightforward array of Fall 2014′s most compelling accessories with two utterly adorable piglets. Somehow, the little critters make their photo costars seem even more glam than a human model would.

We’ve picked out a couple of our favorites below, but you can see the rest of the Danielle Prescod-styled, Katie Friedman-lensed photos at Elle.com.

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.

Fendi’s Monster Peekaboo is Back for Another Season of Staring

Fendi’s Monster Peekaboo is Back for Another Season of Staring

When the first version of the Fendi Buggie Peekaboo made its debut last season, it sold out in a matter of hours and wasn’t replenished after it was gone. If you’ve been irritated with yourself for not snagging one ever since, you’re in luck: a Fall 2014 version of the bag is now available!

For the low, low, value price of $5,300, you can now intimidate men at your office and random passersby with a bag that looks like it contains a bird waiting to peck their eyes out, which is as hearty an endorsement of a bag as I can imagine myself ever giving. Peekaboos can be wildly expensive, but not all of them makes people think twice before bothering you. This one provides that extra bang for your buck.

Pick up your own aggressive handbag for $5,300 via Net-a-Porter.

15 Creepy Handbags for Halloween and Beyond

15 Creepy Handbags for Halloween and Beyond

Kitsch, quirk and extreme literalness are accessories trends that have survived through multiple seasons and only seem to be gaining steam among both designers and consumers. Mostly these ideas manifest themselves in things that are charming or nostalgic, but it’s a very fine line to cross between a cute and cartoonish Fendi Bag Bug and, well, the bags below. They all feel at least a little odd to me in some way, from disembodied, reaching hands to a stuffed bear bag that looks like it would sneak into bed with you in the middle of the night. They’re all sure to turn heads, but the attention you get may not be exactly the kind you were looking for.

Fendi’s Delightful, Bird-Themes Resort 2015 Bags Now Available for Pre-Order

Fendi’s Delightful, Bird-Themes Resort 2015 Bags Now Available for Pre-Order

It’d be difficult to argue that Fendi isn’t absolutely hitting it out of the park right now when it comes to handbags, and now that the brand’s Resort 2015 offerings are starting to trickle into stores, it looks like the brand’s streak shall continue. (It’s already got Spring 2015 locked up, too.) Pre-orders for Fendi’s next round of bags are up at Saks, and the collection includes a bunch of the brand’s most popular shapes in the colorblocked, multi-textured embellished with bird motifs.

Birds, like monsters, make an easy target for Fendi’s particular brand of literal luxury, and in these bags, embroidery, jewels and fur, in addition to multiple textures of leather, create the animals, both on the bags themselves and beyond their traditional bounds.

The Peekaboos are far and away the most expensive of these bags, with Demi-Jours and Petite 2Jours coming in at slightly less painful price point. All are slated for delivery sometime in December. Check out our favorites below or head to Saks to shop the site’s full edit.

PurseBlog Asks: What are the New It Bags?

PurseBlog Asks: What are the New It Bags?

Creating an It Bag requires a little bit of alchemy. Designers can follow all of the correct design steps, put all their marketing dollars behind a design, cast the perfect It Girl for the campaign and still fall well short of handbag hysteria. With that in mind, who are all those variables coming together for right now?

Céline’s Luggage Tote was the last industry-shifting It Bag; the kind of phenomenon that doesn’t come around every season or even every year. Céline’s Trapeze was a strong follow-up, but like all the pretty, popular Chloé bags that came after the Paddington, it never inspired quite the devotion of the original. It’ll probably be a while before the industry manages to produce the perfect bag at the perfect time again, but in the meantime, here are three bags that are competing for the title.

By your definition, what’s the biggest It Bag in the industry right now?

A Look Into the Life of the Fendi Karlito

A Look Into the Life of the Fendi Karlito

When I saw Karlito being carried ever so perfectly down the runway by Cara Delevingne, I knew I had to have him. At first I was told the kitschy bag charm wasn’t intended for product, but with many others like me pining for our very own Karlitos, Fendi decided to make the little guy after all.

Then came trying to track one down, which was hard because all of NYC was sold out and the waitlists were long. Since I knew I was moving down to Florida, I called up the Bal Harbour Fendi boutique and ended up talking to the manager, who was lovely and told me they weren’t sold out of spots! I pre-ordered Karlito and couldn’t wait for him to arrive.

Since his arrival, Karlito has made a place for himself and taken his own journey. There will be many more photos to follow, but for now, take a peek at what it’s like for the #LifeofKarlito (and yes I made a hashtag on Instagram and you should totally follow along!).

The 30 Best Bags of the Spring 2015 Runways

The 30 Best Bags of the Spring 2015 Runways

Now that the Spring 2015 fashion show season has drawn to a close, it’s time to look back, evaluate and separate the notable pieces from the fluff. It seems like more brands stock their shows with handbags every season, and Spring 2015′s best bags include both handbag stalwarts and notable-but-lesser-known accessories brands.

There were few all-encompassing trends this season; instead, novelty found its way into a lot of collections, whether it was through fun prints, micro-mini bags or charms. Many brands also kept up with the seasons-long trend of showing ultra-expensive exotics, which serves both to wow regular customers and entice the affections of the super wealthy. Check out all of our picks below.

An Exclusive Look at the Fendi Soho Store

An Exclusive Look at the Fendi Soho Store

In July, Fendi opened a pop-up store on the corner of Greene and Prince Streets in NYC’s shopping mecca of SoHo. The brand continues to lure in a larger consumer base with its quirky take on bag charms (hello Karlito) while also delivering stunning bags as well.

This pop-up store isn’t going away, and we had the chance to stop in for an exclusive peek at some of the newest bags to hit the shelves. The #FendiSoho neon sign is prominent upon entering the store as are the custom vending machines that have products hanging inside.

The small space has an intimate feel and upon entering I felt like this was my own little slice of Fendi heaven. As of now the store changes themes and items, bringing in new exclusives and some of the most divine exotics and rare Fendi bags we’ve seen grace the runways.

If you are in the NYC area, add the Fendi Soho store to your must stop by list. And for now we have some images from the current setup, which has bag after bag I’m lusting over, from the By The Way to the 2Jours to bag charms galore.

Spring Trends: Denim

The Trend: Denim

How I would wear it: As you maybe alreayd know, I’m a pretty big fan of white denim which means I usually never wear blue denim. I think that might change for next spring…

The best looks: From left to right, Fendi, Sonia Rykiel, Stella McCartney, Chloé and Kenzo.

Fra una fashionweek e l’altra ho trascorso qualche giorno di relax a Milano in un outfit super casual… C’est la vie!

Social Eyes

Last week we met Cècile Togni (maybe you remember her from our project with Whistles?! ) to check out Safilo’s new Parisian sunglasses showroom.

In celebration, Cècile invited a few of her friends to pick out their favorite singlasses, we caught Candela in some funky Fendi speckled cat-eyes, while Lou and Pauline went for more classic styles from Gucci.

Her showroom was a perfect place to run into some cool girls!

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!

30 Bags and the Celebs Who Carried Them at Milan Fashion Week Spring 2015

30 Bags and the Celebs Who Carried Them at Milan Fashion Week Spring 2015

This year, London Fashion Week got compressed down to nearly nothing and we found ourselves looking down the barrel of the Milan Fashion Week collections before we even knew what hit us. Ultimately, though, that’s okay–MFW brought out tons of fashion industry insiders, basically all of whom were carrying pretty bags at which to gawk.

Last season’s Milan shows felt at times like an orgiastic tribute to celebrities, but this season, designers scaled things back a bit. Instead of attempting to fill every from row with the Katy Perrys and Rita Oras of the world, the people that the paparazzi spotted outside of the shows are mostly famous because of their involvement in the industry. Check out the best bags we spotted below.

You Have Six Months to Fortify Your Wallet Against Fendi’s Spring 2015 Runway Bags

You Have Six Months to Fortify Your Wallet Against Fendi’s Spring 2015 Runway Bags

In journalism school, my favorite professor once told me that reviewing something you love is much more difficult than reviewing something you hate, which means I’ve got my work cut out for me when it comes to Fendi’s Spring 2015 bags. After scoping out the dozens (literally) of bags and small leather goods that models toted down the brand’s runway, I’ve become convinced that Karl Lagerfeld loves me and wants me to be happy. The bags are that beautiful.

Fendi’s made a habit in recent seasons of pushing the fashion conversation forward when it comes to construction and textiles, and this collection does that while maintaining a pale, feminine, decidedly spring-like aesthetic. The collection largely avoids launching entirely new bags; instead, Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi went about reimagining and embellishing fan favorites like the Peekaboo, Baguette, 3Jours and By The Way.

The brand’s huge successful small accessories were also all over the place, including Bag Bugs in new colors and a new, miniaturized Karlito, ripe for wait lists. Many of the bags were also adorned with teeny-tiny versions of other Fendi bags; after all, who doesn’t want to hang a little Baguette or Peekaboo on her 3Jours? Check out all the bags (and the bags on bags) below.

Instagram Handbag Celebrity: @bibi2cuori

Instagram Handbag Celebrity: @bibi2cuori

Instagram has been flooded with both amazing bags from fashion week and new fall purchases, but we couldn’t help but notice one Instagram user in particular, @bibi2cuori.

Maybe it was the pictures from her recent travels that caught our eyes, or maybe it was her extensive collection of colorful Hermès and Chanel bags that caused us to find ourselves endlessly scrolling through her feed. While we know very little about who Bibi actually is, she has no problem showing her identity in her photos.

After scrolling through every single photo (literally, every single one), we’re thinking she might be Italian, based on the fact that Italians often have a way of looking effortlessly glamorous. (Okay, some of her captions may have hinted at it as well.) Take a look below at some of our favorite bags from Bibi’s collection or head straight to her Instagram to see the full feed.

The Del Val #29

US Open time here in New York and we know you’ve not forgotten about Andre Agassi.

You can’t escape Father Time and neither can Kobe Bryant. Here’s a preview of an eagerly anticipated documentary about his long road back to game-ready coming out later this year.

A recent Lunch with the Financial Times featured Mr Man of the World Jean Piggozi, and it reminded us how much we love his photo books, especially this old one, of which you should not hesitate to buy a good used copy here or wherever you find one at a price you like.

Who said all good design must be functional? We say there’s always room for clever little things which make us smile and see the world anew.

Staying on the clever tip, you already know Legos, and if you know movies (of which many of these you will recognize) you’re in for a cute treat.

We rejoice whenever Loïc Prigent has a new fashion film. Here’s a glimpse of his latest all about the goings-on at Fendi.

While we were in LA last week we were feeling all-Bret Easton Ellis all-the-time, listening to his podcasts in the car, buying his books, and rereading this great interview with him. And when we spotted Bret at one of our favorite restaurants, well, let’s just say Delphine had a hard time fully concentrating on her food, or her dinner companion!

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.

8 Reasons Spending $1,000 or More on a Bag is Totally Worth It

8 Reasons Spending $1,000 or More on a Bag is Totally Worth It

[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.]

Sticker shock from friends and family members has probably happened to anyone with an interest in fashion or high-end handbags. They ask about your new purchase, they sheepishly ask how much it cost and then they shame you in some way for having the gall to be so extravagant, even if they aren’t blunt enough to put it in those words. Not only are we here to assure you that it’s okay, but we’re here to explain exactly why.

Even for those of us who are somewhat desensitized to fashion prices, handbag prices can sometimes seem a little bit silly. We’re nothing if not professional enablers, though, so if you’re doubting a future purchase or need to convince someone who has his or her nose in your business, we have some arguments that might come in handy.

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.
