Want It Wednesday Black Friday

Around the office, we’re all preparing for Thanksgiving tomorrow (I did a biscuit recipe dry run last night and I’m still halfway in a carb coma), but our minds aren’t too far from Black Friday. We’ll have full coverage of all the best deals, sales and markdowns on the big day, but right now, all we can do is hope that the things we’d really love to have end up in someone’s sale section. Below, check out a short list of the things we’re each going to be searching for once all the sales launch. Read More…

eBay Best Designer Bags November 26

This the week when many of us give thanks for what we have, and then go shopping. And many of us will be spending Black Friday at home; online, and definitely on eBay. With that in mind, we found some terrific bags to kick start your day, including a sweet Judith Leiber minaudière, a stunning wicker Chanel bag and a tote from Alexander McQueen that will definitely hold it all! Happy shopping. Read More…

Christian Louboutin Front Double 120 Patent Leopard 50s

When our friends over at Christian Louboutin sent us some photos of not-yet-availble styles from the upcoming Spring 2015 collection, it felt as if we’d been invited to a exclusive party; now we’re extending the invitation to all of you. Many designers choose ladylike silhouettes and the ubiquitous floral print for spring, but Louboutin stays true to his sexy aesthetic with this very alluring collection.

It’s no secret that the second the cold weather hits, most of us immediately resort to an all-black wardrobe, and I’m certainly no exception. While all of us here in the office appreciate a good black bag, it’s the rich, jewel-toned colored bags (especially burgundy) that we’re really lusting over this fall.

Celebrities and Chanel Bags

When I sat down to compile the photos for this post, I didn’t know that it was going to be about Chanel. As I started looking through our photo agency’s recent archives, though, it became clear that it had to be; no other brand exerts the kind of dominance among high-profile women’s handbag collections that Chanel does.

Not only is are the brand’s bags omnipresent, but they appear on the arms of basically every kind of celebrity there is. Reality stars, celebrated actresses, pop queens, former child stars, fashion editors and high-profile bloggers. No one’s immune, apparently. We already compiled 100 images of stars and their favorite Chanel bags, and in the time since then, we easily found another 50. Check them out below. Read More…

Charlotte Olympia Taquera Clutch

Bag: Charlotte Olympia Taquera Clutch

Price: $1,295 via Net-A-Porter

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Look, it’s halfway through a short holiday week here in the US, and we’re feeling a little bit goofy around the PurseBlog offices. Goofy enough for a four-figure taco clutch? Maybe! Even if it looks like a salad taco. It’s Taco Tuesday, after all. I’m going to Chipotle for lunch.
