National Handbag Day Best Of 2015

Saturday was our third annual National Handbag Day, and handbag lovers everywhere united to share their love of bags with us! This year, #nationalhandbagday trended on Instagram all day, and as well as on Twitter during part of the day and in certain areas.

Notice We have a lot to discuss over at TalkShoes, so let’s get started. We spotted the beautiful Kirsten Dunst wearing a Proenza Schouler leather dress to the premiere of Fargo, and she paired the ensemble with interesting Ferragamo sandals. This isn’t the first pair of geometric sandals we’ve seen from Ferragamo this season and we hope it won’t be the last! To make your Monday a bit sweeter, be sure to check out the weekend’s nine best shoe deals before it’s too late!


Bag: Fendi Large Shearling Peekaboo Bag

Price: $7,250 via Net-a-Porter

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: I never thought of hugability as a criterion for bag-buying until just now.


Another show season is in the books, and that means it’s time for a post-mortem on the fourth and final slate of shows, Paris Fashion Week. As you saw in our closer looks at the collections from Chanel, Dior and Louis Vuitton, there was much to celebrate on the French runways.


Cultural appropriation in fashion is a super hot topic in the industry at the moment. Partly because the Internet has opened fashion criticism up beyond just the elite, brands are getting called out for their “borrowing” in situations when they wouldn’t have been criticized in the past, and not all of them have figured out solid ways to navigate it.

Mansur Gavriel Restock

We just announced that we’re giving away a Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag and now we also have the exclusive on the upcoming Mansur Gavriel restock.

Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag in Black Flamma

To celebrate National Handbag Day we are giving away a bag that so many want but few have been able to get their hands on. We are giving away a Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag in Black/Flamma to one lucky person.

The Lady Bag has been on my radar since Mansur Gavriel first released it. There’s a simplicity to this bag that melds the overall Mansur Gavriel aesthetic while offering a new touch. The lines are clean, beautiful, and this bag can easily become your daily go-to.

This Mansur Gavriel Lady bag features Italian vegetable tanned black leather with a red interior in matte patent along with an exterior top handle and detachable adjustable shoulder strap. Retail price is $895.
