Not everyone’s a wallet person. I’m certainly not a wallet person, despite the fact that New York’s often-cash-only ways have goaded me into carrying one in my three-plus years here. It’s bulky and heavy, and I don’t like it, but there it is anyway, weighing down the bottom of my bag.
Happy Friday, Roundup Readers! We hope you are all rested up from the National Handbag Day festivities. We certainly had a lovely time revisiting some of our favorite bags and collections last week and hope you did too.
This week, we dropped into Coach and checked in on the Snoopy Line conversation, which you’ll want to check out!
Hart of Dixie star Jaime King was recently spotted out and about in the East Village, looking perfectly casual and carrying an extremely wee Christian Dior Lady Dior Mini Bag. Our powers of purse premonition are telling us that Dior is about to have a huge handbag moment, and celebrity fandom is, of course, always an integral part of making that happen.

Friends & Family sale season is in full swing, and we’ve got another exciting edition to the coupon code roster to add to the list.

This week, all the most attractive bags were in muted neutrals and pastels, with a couple of black bags thrown in for balance.

Karl Lagerfeld is pitching a lifetime publicity perfect game, and when that comes to his position atop Chanel, that means periodically wrangling fashion celebs, chic indie actresses and some miscellaneous French girls to show up at parties decked in the brand’s wares.
