Want It Wednesday: Holiday Travel Essentials

Want It Wednesday: Holiday Travel Essentials

Members of the PurseBlog team have already started leaving our little New York City nest in pursuit of holiday travel adventures (and I will be joining their ranks tomorrow), so now seemed like a good time to contemplate the best-case scenario for what to carry with us when we fly, drive or train-ride our way to our holiday destinations. Below, check out a few of our picks.

eBay’s Best Designer Bags and Accessories of the Week – December 17

eBay’s Best Designer Bags and Accessories of the Week – December 17

It’s Wednesday, and that means we are shopping! This week on eBay we added some accessories to the mix, including a scarf from Hermès, a stunning belt from Chanel and beautiful wallets from Balenciaga and Chloé. Check out those, plus a bunch of great bags, below.

Gift Guide 2014: The Best Bags for All the Women in Your Life, Based on Their Favorite TV Shows

Gift Guide 2014: The Best Bags for All the Women in Your Life, Based on Their Favorite TV Shows

My favorite thing about fashion is that people’s choices are so telling. When you understand the social language of fashion (and, by extension, of handbags), how people choose to adorn themselves is a little window into how they see themselves, just like their favorite books or college major. With that in mind, we tried out a little thought experiment in the office: can you guess which handbag someone would love based on only which TV show they’re obsessed with?

Personally, I think that you absolutely can, with at least reasonable certainty. So, if you’ve found this gift guide because you’re a husband, boyfriend, mom, sister or very generous friend who’s trying to pick the perfect handbag for someone in your life, allow us to give you some guidance based on that person’s taste in TV. It is, at the very least, a jumping-off point. For even more of those, check out our full array of gift guides.

Everyone in Hollywood is Currently Pregnant; Here are Their Handbags

Everyone in Hollywood is Currently Pregnant; Here are Their Handbags

This will not shock you: pregnant stars do not mess around with micro bags. We didn’t set out to do a maternity edition of our usual celeb bag round-up, it just sort of happened accidentally; you could call it…unplanned. Some of these celebs are just barely baby bumpin’, and some are heavily, alarmingly pregnant. A couple of these stars have existed in a near-constant state of pregnancy for 3-5 years now. All are carrying pretty great bags. If you’ve never given a lot of thought to maternity fashion, you should definitely have a few ideas on the subject locked down after this post.

eBay’s Best Bags – December 10

eBay’s Best Bags – December 10

It’s Wednesday, and that means we are ready shop. We got a little head start and found some terrific bags on eBay this week, including a cute, rare offering from Gucci, a couple very nice small bags from Chanel and something big and gorgeous from Bottega Veneta. Happy shopping!

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.

#Celebrating Monogram

Lv Backpack 2My first day in New York City was all about Celebrating Monogram with Louis Vuitton together with Frank Gehry, Christian Louboutin, Marc Newson, Cindy Sherman, Karl Lagerfeld and Rei Kawakubo.
I was sharing my spirit of travel, styling the backpack designed by Marc Newson, hope you like it as much as I do!

Il mio primo giorno a New York è stato dedicato alla celebrazione del Monogram di Louis Vuitton insieme a Frank Gehry, Christian Louboutin, Marc Newson, Cindy Sherman, Karl Lagerfeld and Rei Kawakubo.
Seguendo il mio spirito da viaggiatrice, ho interpretato lo zaino disegnato da Marc Newson, spero vi piaccia tanto quanto è piaciuto a me!

Open Door

The Louis Vuitton Fondation has just opened its doors to the public.


In case you couldn’t tell, Frank Gehry designed the new museum (maybe you know a few of his structures like the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the tower 8 Spurce Street in New York),with transparent glass sails as walls, its no doubt an extension of all of his work.

The foundation will be host to concerts, artist collections, and exhibitions galore. But will the building the events are held in be the greater attraction? I’m not sure, but I think its worth a trip!

Man Bag Monday: Louis Vuitton Taurillon Backpack

Man Bag Monday: Louis Vuitton Taurillon Backpack

Historically, “discreet” hasn’t often been a word used to describe Louis Vuitton bags, but times are a-changing at the French leather goods powerhouse. Several seasons before Nicolas Ghesquiere was brought in to helm the women’s side of the company, Kim Jones was hired to oversee the men’s side of things; his contribution to the brand’s legacy has already been tremendous.

The Louis Vuitton Taurillon Backpack (named for the type of leather it uses) is a small piece of the masculine-luxury look that Jones has built, but it’s a good representative for the vibe that permeates much of the brand’s men’s bags. It’s luxurious and simple; minimal, but not in an architecturally aggressive way. It has a traditionalism to it, and the design is well-edited enough that it doesn’t make men who don’t want to carry a purse feel like that’s what they’re doing.

Something this good and this simple usually doesn’t come cheap, though. You can pick one up for $5,000 via Louis Vuitton.

street_style_paris_fashion_week_septiembre_2014_dia_7_386231050_1200x Here’s the pictures from the most awaited show of every season, Louis Vuitton, not just because it has been the hottest ticket in town, and to have been the only spanish female blogger invited makes it even more special :) Nichola’s third collection for the french label is already a total hit, and even that he’s keeping a very define line when it comes to style and shapes he truly knows how to make us wow every time. My favourite bits are leather skirts and accessories. Bring back the 60s! One of my favourite decades, and the make up is already a must try, something I’ve been trying for many years and that is always a pleasure to see on a catwalk. Well done once again! To attend the show I borrowed this look that my friend Miranda Makaroff sported during PFW, as I had already closed all my suitcases and I was running straight to the Eurostar right after the show, but the look is from spanish designer David Delfin which added a cool touch with his trademark upside-down shirt/dress paired with Sandro shoes.  All images by Le21Eme, Alix de Beer and Vogue.es

Aquí están las fotos del desfile más esperado de la temporada, Louis Vuitton , no solo por ser aquel en el que es más difícil tener acceso sino también por ser la única blogger española invitada lo cual hace todo más especial :) La tercera colección de Nicholas para la marca francesa ya es un éxito absoluto. Sigue manteniendo una línea muy definida entre estilo y patrones pero verdaderamente sabe cómo sorprendernos cada vez. Del desfile me quedo con las faldas de piel y los accesorios. ¡Los 60s han vuelto, una de mis décadas favoritas! El maquillaje es un must que se debe probar y que yo he implementado en mi rutina diaria desde hace mucho y es un placer verlo en la pasarela. ¡ Una vez más enhorabuena! Para asistir al desfile tomé prestado un look que llevó mi amiga Miranda Makaroff durante PFW ya que mis maletas ya estaban cerradas e iba directa al Eurostar después del show. El look es del diseñador español David Delfín que añadía un toque divertido con este vestido, todo ello combinado con zapatos de Sandro. Imágenes por Le21Eme, Alix de Beer and Vogue.es

Welcome to our roundup of some of eBay’s best bags and bag bargains of the week. We have a couple of nice selections from Chanel and Bottega Veneta this week, as well as a great buy on a Coach tote. An unusual bag from Valextra and a cute McQueen clutch also caught our eyes. Happy shopping.

Rihanna Carries Louis Vuitton Bag Designed by Franky Gehry

Rihanna Carries Louis Vuitton Bag Designed by Franky Gehry

Here’s Rihanna, heading to dinner at Nobu in Tribeca on a particularly blustery night in NYC. She’s carrying the Louis Vuitton x Frank Gehry Twisted Box Monogram Bag, which retails for $4,400 in select Vuitton stores as part of the brand’s “Celebrating Monogram” collaboration with six fashion and design luminaries. (The asymmetrical shape of this bag is intentional, it hasn’t been slightly smashed by Ri-Ri.)

You can get a better look at the complete collection here, and read more about it on the brand’s website. “Celebrating Monogram” is a varied and at times slightly bizarre collection, but it does feature several other notable contributions from Karl Lagerfeld, photographer Cindy Sherman, and design guru Mark Newson.

FALL ACCESSORIES

Redval_SB1428

In the latest issue of STYLEBY I share my favorite accessories for this season (as well as the rest of our editorial staff). I’ve told you about these shoes from Zara before, and as you can see, I have a major craving for this scarf from Marc Jacobs. And, of course, wouldn’t mind a belt from Louis Vuitton either..

Make sure to buy yourself a copy of issue 28. The perfect weekend treat!

Look of the Day.380: Black is the warmest colour

IMG_9692
IMG_9739 IMG_0063 IMG_9772 IMG_0080 IMG_0100 IMG_0102 In order to own a look and make it pop you should feel comfortable in it in the first place. The final tweaks that you add to it are the key: it could be a intricate sandal, a big bracelet, a pair of earring… It’s the way that you mix and match that gives the look this aura of effortlessness and charm . I have recently teamed up with Louis Vuitton again and I got to wear these new range of footwear that they launched. As I said before, these are pieces which will actually make the look pop as they provide that final touch that we always look for. Today I’m wearing a Isabel Marant jumper.
Para hacer de un look algo único y que destaque, en primer lugar debes sentirte cómoda con el. Los últimos toques que se le añaden pueden ser la clave: puede ser una sandalia llamativa, una brazalete, un par de pendientes… Es la forma en la que combinas las cosas lo que aporta al look un aura única. Recientemente he colaborado con Louis Vuitton  otra vez y he tenido la oportunidad de probar la nueva colección de zapatos que han sacado. Como he comentado con anterioridad, estas piezas harán que el look destaque ya que aportan ese toque que todas buscamos. Hoy llevo sueter de Isabel Marant.

Rachel Zoe Picks Pumpkins with Her Kids and a Gucci Bag

It’s that time of year again when LA celebrities grab their kids (or kids they’ve borrowed especially for the occasion), the paparazzi grab their cameras and everyone heads on down to Mr. Bones’ Pumpkin Patch. Here’s Rachel Zoe, pumpkin-picking with her sons Skyler and Kaius and her husband Rodger Berman. She’s carrying a dark brown Gucci Nouveau Fringe Suede Bag. Rachel’s version of this fringed Gucci is now sold out, but you can find a python version for $3,100 at Net-A-Porter.

If you look closely, you’ll notice that Rachel also has a Louis Vuitton Damier Neverfull Tote tucked away in her stroller. You can peruse the rest of Rachel Zoe’s handbag collection in “The Many Bags of Rachel Zoe.” Mr. Bones is a such a beloved celeb to-do that last year we recapped the event with a blog post fittingly titled “The Many Bags of the Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch.” It’s highly likely we’ll do another one this year, if celeb turnout is decent and pap handbag pics are plentiful.

It’s such a thrilling experience being able to work alongside such creative people and making customers enjoy while they visit and wander around this cozy little place were the shop is set at. This american brand has a huge cult of followers and truth be told I’m one of their fans since a long time ago.

You shouldn’t miss this great opportunity! I’m wearing a Free People dress and Louis Vuitton booties.

Ya ha pasado un tiempo desde la última vez que pinché, pero no podía esperar a tener mis manos en la mesa de mezclas para la inauguración de la E-Shop de Es una grata experiencia el ser capaz de trabajar junto a gente tan creativa y hacer que los clientes disfruten mientras visitan y se pasean por el acogedor lugar donde la tienda está situada. Esta marca americana tiene un gran culto de seguidores y siendo sinceros yo soy una de sus fans más acérrimas desde hace mucho tiempo.

These 33 Pets and Designer Bags are a Match Made in Heaven

These 33 Pets and Designer Bags are a Match Made in Heaven

Members on our PurseForum clearly also share the love that the PurseBlog team has for both our bags and our pets; our Animalicious subform is among tPF’s most popular, and members all over the forum share photos of their pets, their bags and, sometimes, their pets and their bags together.

Because we feel that the run-up to National Handbag Day is all about celebrating the way that our favorite accessories fit into our lives, we’ve assembled those photos, plus some from our Twitter friends, below. We’d love to see your pets in your bags in the comments!

Spring Trends: Eyelet

The Trend: Eyelet

How I would wear it: I really loved this eyelet detail from the spring collections– it’s delicate and feminine but still feels cool. I think the pants from Isabel Marant are my favorite!

The best looks: From left to right, Chloe, Louis Vuitton, Isabel Marant, Valentino, Hermès

What Your Handbag Says About You, Part Two

What Your Handbag Says About You, Part Two

Last year for National Handbag Day, I went about reading my handbag tea leaves to figure out what your handbag choices say about you. This year, in celebration of the holiday’s second coming on Friday, I’ve returned with a new set of highly covetable bags to do the same. Check out the results below.

75+ Bags and the Celebs Who Carried Them at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2015

75+ Bags and the Celebs Who Carried Them at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2015

Paris Fashion Week is the grandaddy of them all, and the street style certainly reflected that. Like Milan Fashion Week before it, brands invited fewer celebrities, so editors, bloggers and street style stars got more of a chance to shine. We slogged through a million (only a slight exaggeration) photos of the proceedings to find the best bags on the most stylish stars, and you can check them all out below.

Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2015 Bags Show Nicolas Ghesquiere Coming Into His Own

Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2015 Bags Show Nicolas Ghesquiere Coming Into His Own

There’s no doubt about it: Nicolas Ghesquiere knows exactly what he’s up to at Louis Vuitton. The designer sent his second major collection for the brand down his Paris runway yesterday morning, and the results felt like a strong continuation on what he’s built so far. On top of that, a lot of the bags were quite good.

If you didn’t like the Twist Bag that Ghesquiere debuted for Resort 2015, your feelings might be less enthusiastic. Although its raised, tubular LV logo still feels clunky to me, everything else about the bag is pretty good. Perhaps more importantly, it doesn’t feel like something Marc Jacobs would have made, and that’s vital for a brand looking for a new direction and new excitement. A particularly interesting series of Twist bags were made of Epi leather with significant color variation, which is a first for one of the brand’s most popular materials.

Another first: A red and black monogram print, as well as soft-sided versions of the Petite-Malle bag that was introduced with Ghesquiere’s first collection. Overall, there was plenty to look forward to.

A preview of what’s to come! Exciting!

The Fashion Watch

This will make you really want an Apple Watch.

I’m not the kind of person that has to have the latest and greatest tech accessory (I have an iPhone 5C, which I call my “Fisher-Price phone” and I have no plans of ditching it any time soon) but if these imagined Apple Watch designs were to ever become a reality, I would be the first person waiting in line (which means, I would need to get in line now, right?).

I’m torn between the Chanel and the Vuitton. Come on Apple, make these happen!

SELF SERVICE

Signing for SelfServiceSeen above is the signing of Self Service issue 41 with french guest editor Marie-Amelie Sauvé. As you can see she put herself on the cover wearing Louis Vuitton Cruise 2015 with singer and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg. Her longtime friend, Nicolas Ghesquière (whom she works close to, as stylist and muse for Louis Vuitton and previously Balenciaga) was, of course, at the event to support. Can’t wait to put my hands on this one!
