Thanksgiving Bags 2011

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the US, and although we know that PurseBlog readers hail from near and far, giving thanks and being grateful seems like something we can all agree on, even without a specific holiday.


It may not be Black Friday quite yet (it’s not even Thanksgiving quite yet, after all), but tons of our favorite retailers have launched seasonal sales, coupon codes or some combination of the two starting today, and you know how these things go. Shop early or forever hold your peace. (Or, in this case, shop while you’re still on the clock at work and save a little extra time for family and friends this weekend.)

We’ll have updated sale information for you tomorrow, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but in the meantime, we’ve got both the extensive sale listings below as well as every single detail your heart could desire on our Deals Page. Read More…


We’ve been treating you to celeb handbag roundups on a twice-weekly basis for some time now, but now we think it’s time to look at exactly what celebs are pairing with their handbags, specifically below their ankles.

During my most recent perusal of Louis Vuitton’s new arrivals on the brand’s website, I came across something that shocked even me: a crocodile version of the beautiful new Louis Vuitton City Steamer Bag, retailing for a mind-boggling $55,500.


Black Friday may be only a few days away, but you don’t have to wait until after Thanksgiving to shop one of the most anticipated sales in fashion. The Net-a-Porter Sale just launched this morning, and this twice-yearly period of markdowns is something fashion lovers anticipate for weeks. This year, initial discounts are as much as 50% on popular brands like Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler and Anya Hindmarch.

We know as well as anyone that sale launches can be a bit overwhelming, so we took the liberty of pre-shopping the selection and picking some of our favorite bags and shoes to get you started. You can shop them below.

Van Dutch X Prive Porter Birkin Boat

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show was a couple weekends ago, and since Fort Lauderdale calls itself the “Yachting Capital of the World,” the best yachts lined the area’s many local waterways for the occasion.
