Chanel-Boy-Bag

Oh, thank goodness! Friday is here at last. It’s time to put the first week of March to rest, so kick off your shoes and come along for a look at what has been happening on the PurseForum this week. We found some signs of spring in Kate Spade and the Glass Slipper, and of course, some great bags everywhere we looked.

TS Notice 3_6 Over on TalkShoes, we have all the shoes you need to see from Sophia Webster’s Fall 2015 collection! Lily James plays Cinderella in the upcoming Disney movie and we wouldn’t expect anything else than for her to wear a pump that’s fit for a princess to the movie premiere. We never thought we’d say this, but this week we’re coveting all kinds of mega platforms. (Hold your judgement until you see our picks!) Lastly, if you love Manolo Blahnik’s Hangisi Pump, then you’ll want to check out a similar pair from SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker.

Scandal-Season-4,-Episode-14

Last night’s episode of Scandal was widely promoted as the most powerful episode of the season, and Olivia and the gang definitely delivered on that promise in a big departure from the international intrigue to which we’ve become accustomed.

Mnay Shoes Fetaure Image Lupita

Lupita Nyong’o is a red carpet natural. She’s graceful and elegant while still managing to be a fashion daredevil. Last year was Lupita’s coming out party, with her Oscar win for the film 12 Years a Slave and the media tour that surrounded it, which gave us all a chance to appreciate her sense of style.

Bag-Deals-March-6

We’re in a bit of an off period for sales, but sometimes, that’s when the best bag deals can be found. Sometimes post-holiday inventory management reveals a couple extra pieces of something that had long ago sold out, or maybe stores finally got around to re-stocking returned Christmas gifts; either way, we’re here to help you reap the benefits. Just like we do every Friday, we scoured the Internet for the best handbag sales and steals, and you can find the spoils of our efforts below. Read More…

Chanel Haute Couture Textures (1)

I’m totally obsessed with our new series of texture studies, in which we give you a detailed look at the characteristics and components that make up some of our favorite brands and pieces. We first looked at Chanel Spring 2015 bags, and now we have exclusive photos Vlad shot of the Chanel Haute Couture Collection for Spring-Summer 2015.

Celebrity-Handbags-March-5

Fame requires a lot of legwork. Sure, once you’ve made it, someone will usually send a car to ferry you from place to place, but there’s still a fair bit of hoofing involved if you want to stay relevant. That’s why so many of the snapshots we feature are of celebrities dashing through airports, in and out of studios and around throngs of fans.

Givenchy-Antigona-Bag

There’s an old saying about the only sure things in life being death and taxes, but if you’re a handbag buyer, there’s another inevitability: price increases. With brands like Chanel, Hermès and Louis Vuitton, they’re fairly easy to track; because the bags are only available from the company’s boutiques, all the new product arrives at once and sales associates warn their loyal customers in advance.
