Friday! Glorious, wonderful Friday! We’re here to welcome you to our weekly romp through the halls of the PurseForum, where this week, we found some sweet reveals in Rebecca Minkoff and Céline. We also swung into Proenza Schouler and caught some of our members modeling some great new bags.
We have plenty happening on TalkShoes, so lets get to it. First, we want to let you in on a little secret! At Earth Day without finding Forzieri you can enjoy the 20% off VIP Shoe Sale when you use the code NEEDSHOES at checkout. We also couldn’t celebrate the best green shoes, all under $500! We also spotted Sarah Jessica Parker channeling her inner Carrie Bradshaw with this pair of pumps from her SJP collection. If you want to get a head start on one of summer’s biggest trends then get ready for a dose of summer suede!
You guys, I’m ready to make a somewhat surprising declaration: Last night’s episode of Scandal was good. Not “good for this season,” or “good relative to all the bad episodes lately,” but legitimately, objectively good. The stuff going on felt exciting and like we were continuing to move through the plot, and even though last week’s episode had a pretty significant red herring, this week didn’t slow down when it reversed course.
There ain’t no party like a Chanel party because a Chanel party is full of beautiful people with even more beautiful handbags. As they do every year, Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld descended on the Tribeca Film Festival to host the Chanel Artists Dinner, which celebrates Lagerfeld’s favorite people: actresses and other creatives, mostly (but not always) of the indie variety.
It’s time to celebrate another work week completed with another round of bag deals, and this week, we’re clearly ready for spring. We found a bunch of bags both bright and pale to suit whatever your warm-weather style might be, but if your preference (or your office dress code) runs more toward neutrals, we have several of those as well.
As the weather has steadily warmed in New York City, I’ve heard a familiar refrain from my friends: Ugh, my feet are so gross from winter. Ugh, I need to get a pedicure. New York is especially difficult on feet because of all the walking involved in living here, and the task of undoing all the winter’s snow-booted damage can seem daunting.
It probably won’t surprise you to hear that we are staunchly Team Treat Yo’self. Everyday life can be drudgery, and everyone has to find his or her own ways to make it sparkle. Our preferred method is the stalking and eventual acquisition of beautiful accessories, and if you need a little extra encouragement we’ve got it below.
It’s that time of year when we all contemplate our wardrobes for the changing weather, and if you’ve made your way here, you’re probably also contemplating a new acquisition or two. If that’s the case, I have some good news: the Barneys Purple Card Event runs from today through April 26! During that time, you’ll get a $25 gift card for every $250 you spend. That means a new Givenchy Antigona could net you as much as $250 for a future purchase, which will put you well on your way toward summer sandals or a mini-spree in the beauty department.
It’s legitimately feels like spring in about three quarters of the US right now, and that means it’s time to bust out the short shorts, the Céline bags, and…Sharon Stone? Sharon is making herself very available to paparazzi this month, for reasons I can’t quite pinpoint, but it’s okay because she looks fabulous and her bag picks are CHOICE.
