As you all know by now, our third annual National Handbag Day is this Saturday, October 10, and we’re celebrating all week with fun stuff like handbag histories, our favorite PurseForum threads and closer looks at what our bag choices say about us.
Paris Fashion Week is, in some ways, the Super Bowl of fashion. Its attendees have played hard all season to get there, and when they’ve arrived, they have to play harder still to come out on top.
Louis Vuitton is, by necessity, a show full of handbags every season. Creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere does far more that’s just as worthy of note, of course, but LV is, first and foremost, a brand concerned with its leather goods.
When we began the PurseForum over ten years ago, I truly had no idea it would grow to the size it is today. With just under 500,000 registered members, tPF is one of the most active forums online.
National Handbag Day is October 10, and all this week, we’ve got very special stuff planned to celebrate. Tomorrow, October 8, we’ll be hosting a live Q&A period with Megs and Amanda; if you have questions about choosing a new bag, personal style, PurseBlog life or pretty much anything else, just drop by the site at 1 p.m. eastern Thursday and ask away! They’ll be here to offer expert opinions and an inside look at working in fashion. Mark your calendars!
We’re big fans of self-care, whether that means a solo trip to the movies or a calming nightly skincare ritual. As you might expect, though, handbags are our favorite way to indulge ourselves. Retail therapy is totally a real thing, and when it comes time to shop, you know which section we’re headed to first.
When I heard that Chanel‘s Spring 2016 show was set to be airport-themed, I couldn’t help but smile; it was one of those (somewhat frequent) moments where I feel like Karl Lagerfeld personally cares about my happiness.
We’ve delved into the many shoes of Amal Clooney, and over on TalkShoes, we have another pair to add to the list. We spotted Mrs. Clooney wearing a gorgeous pair of Jimmy Choo sandals to match her Versace dress. We also spotted Emilia Clarke attending the Dior Spring 2016 show in, you guessed it, Dior pumps. Speaking of Fashion Week, if you’re craving a pair of shoes straight from the Spring 2016 runways, you can now pre-order select pairs through Neiman Marcus!
There are few rituals I love more in life than rubbing a brand new potion of some sort on my face, and with all the inside time that cooler weather brings (plus all the need for hyperactive moisturizing), now is a great time to start thinking about what you’re going to put on your face while you watch Netflix this winter.
I remember when I first heard of the Chanel WOC; I also remember it took me a while (maybe longer than I’d like to admit) to figure out “WOC” stood for “Wallet On Chain.” Chanel isn’t the only brand to make a WOC, but it’s arguably the brand most closely associated with the popular style, and much like many other Chanel pieces, the brand does its WOC oh so well.
