Moschino t-shirt bag

I try not to be overly negative about any fashion piece; I know that my taste is not for everyone, and the same can be said for anyone else’s. I appreciate the chances that designers take, and when I’m being more critical, it’s typically over the price and quality. Of course, there are plenty of items I don’t appreciate on an aesthetic level, but I try not to make it a focus on this site.

Moschino doesn’t shy away from getting people talking. In creative director Jeremy Scott’s short tenure with the brand, he’s already released a McDonald’s-inspired line, super quirky iPhone cases (which I love!) and a series of bags that look like iconic jackets. Now Moschino is taking the jacket bags one step further with a T-shirt bag.

Moschino T-Shirt Bag 1

I never wanted to carry one of the jacket bags, but I much prefer it over this t-shirt bag. The good: the bag is made of great leather. The bad: everything else. Not only do I not love the bag, I feel like it would be so uncomfortable to carry on your shoulder, with the stiff “shirt sleeves” poking you as you try to get in and out of it. The price of the bag is $1,495 via Net-a-Porter.

But, as I said when I started, what I like and what others like can be two very different things. So I turn to you, dear readers: would you ever carry this Moschino bag?

I can’t tell you how much I’ve loved getting to share my love of handbags with you for almost ten years now. It’s pretty crazy to think that PurseBlog will turn ten this year, and it’s thanks to you that we’ve made it this far.

One of our major goals is to offer a wide variety of handbag coverage, including sneak peeks at new designs, handbag news and raves over our favorite pieces. When it comes down to a couple of humans picking things to write about, though, there will always be a bias. I’ve been on a Chanel kick lately (if you follow our Instagram account, you will see how intense it is!), and I’m also a major Gucci fanatic.

We try to provide as much variety as possible, but I am sure we’re missing some brands you love. We want to give you the most well-rounded experience when you visit our site, so I want to hear what brands or stories you’d like to see us cover more. Also, if there are features you love or new angles you’d love to see us cover, let us know. Tell us anything in the comments below; we love to hear from you! We will read all of the comments and do our best to integrate the best suggestions into PurseBlog.

TS Notice 1_23 It’s clear that celebrities love Kurt Geiger, because over on TalkShoes, both Amy Adams and Sarah Paulson stepped out this week wearing shoes from the brand. If you’re looking for a pair of boots that has lots of chain detailing, you’re in luck, because we found some of the best pairs for under $500! We are also obsessing over this pair of Christian Louboutin pumps (need we say more), and last but not least, we checked out the Charlotte Olympia Spring 2015 collection, which centered around the idea of the wild, wild West.

Somehow, it’s almost February, and that means it’s almost time for New York Fashion Week and the debut of the first Fall 2015 collections. Pre-Fall 2015 presentations have barely wrapped up, and when we went back to survey the pre-season in advance of the NY shows, we noticed one that we skipped in all of late December’s holiday tumult–Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2015, which was shown in Tokyo.

Celebrity-Handbags-January-22

The celebiverse is much more nuanced than you’d imagine, if you only followed along with People and Us Weekly. There are entire solar systems worth of celebrity stylists and fashion bloggers, many of whom you’re probably unaware of and not following on Instagram. We aim to rectify that. Fashion bloggers and celebrity stylists don’t have full access to the arsenal of designer freebies that A-list actresses do, but they really make it work with what they do have, and their bag choices are usually top notch. We’ve included a couple of them, along with a couple of our usual celebs and one very successful businesswoman, below. Read More…

short handbag shoulder strap

Shoulder straps, whether they’re one option or the only option, are one of the most important details I look for in a bag. Years ago, when I began buying more and more handbags, I tended to buy bags purely based on how they looked, instead of their functional details. As I began to delve into the handbag world more and review bags more closely, I realized the importance of a good shoulder strap. Read More…

Best-Designer-Work-Bags

Getting dressed for work is something that women’s fashion magazines and websites tackle regularly, and with varying results. (Who thinks that putting a blazer over a crop top is going to fly as a good day-to-night option in most workplaces?) Because we spend most of our time thinking about a particular part of the fashion industry, though, we’d like to think that we can scope out good workwear with slightly more accurate results.
