Bottega-Veneta-Bag-in-Venice

It’s time to wrap up May, Roundup readers, and we are going to do it in fine style. This week, we stopped by our brand new Wardrobe Showcase subforum and paid visits to Balenciaga and Bottega Veneta. And that was just the beginning!

May-2015-Best-Post

This month included both a holiday weekend and an unofficial season change, so, as always, we forgive you if you haven’t read everything we’ve slaved over in this hot Internet kitchen. With new fall lookbooks and Cruise 2016 collections popping up left and right, though, you might have missed something well worth going back to see.

5-Summer-Beauty-Tools

Every season has its own beauty challenges, and as we sweat our way into summer, you’re likely rediscovering all the frizzy hair and calloused feet that cold weather lets us forget about for a while. In an effort to help you solve your problems (which are also our problems), we did a little research and came up with five indispensable tools to help you look your best until Labor Day.

Bag-Deals-May-29

Sale season comes but twice a year, and right now, we’re in the thick of it. We gave you the rundown on 30 incredible bag deals when the sales launched on Wednesday, and now that dust has settled and retailers have added some more stuff to their offerings, we’re back with 22 more. We have to warn you, though; what you’ll find below will probably be tempting.

Like many of you, I am Instagram obsessed. Once I launched the PurseBlog Instagram account a few years ago, I was hooked and it started to become a huge part of my day. While Vlad and I don’t have our own pet yet (we are planning to get a puppy sometime soonish!), I am still entirely enthralled with other people’s pets – like @pepperpaprikash above!

Gold-and-Diamond-Apple-Watch

When the Apple Watch pricing structure was announced, I couldn’t titter at the people who were predicting the downfall of western culture because it came in a $10,000 gold version. When you work in fashion, you know better than to think $10,000 is where luxury goods end.

Dita Von Teese leaves at a yacht party in Cannes The holiday weekend may be over, but the weekend’s holiday sales are still going strong. On TalkShoes, you can still shop the 25 best shoe deals, and trust us, you don’t want to miss out. Even the glamorous Dita Von Teese needs to kick off her vertiginous Louboutin heels sometimes, and after our journey in a pair of Pigalle pumps, we certainly don’t blame her.

TMBO Racked

We’ve been running The Many Bags Of features for years, starting with celebrities and their vast collections of handbags. Racked.com is one of the sites I visit daily, and their team’s industry-insider series Working It gave us the idea to investigate what some of our favorite fashion people carry to work.

Dear Mr. Joel Silver,

I would like to humbly request an invite to your 2016 Memorial Day Pool Party. I know I’m making this request a full year in advance, but I’m allowing you plenty of time to get your ridiculously impressive, A-lister guest list completely nailed down before you start letting in randos like me.

The perks of mega-celebrity are too numerous to list; you can get into any restaurant you want without a reservation, boxes of free stuff arrive at your door every day, you’ve got enough money that you could quit on the spot and never work again.
