Chanel Metiers d'Art Paris-Salzburg 2015 Bags 32

This won’t be shocking news to anyone who saw the results of both our handbag-themed March Madness and World Cup brackets (Chanel won both without much trouble), but the French brand has taken another Internet crown. Chanel was the most reblogged handbag brand on Tumblr and second most popular fashion brand overall, behind only Nike. Here’s why that’s not so surprising. Read More…

TS Notice With the upcoming holiday travels, the TalkShoes staff picked the best shoes to make our travels luxurious and comfortable. Speaking of yearning for comfortable footwear, even Khloé Kardashian likes to swap her towering pumps for an occasional pair of UGG boots. (For more of Khloé’s shoe picks, check out her Many Shoes!) We know you checked the Net-a-Porter sale for all the best handbags, but the shoe selection is pretty great, too. The end of the year calls for sparkly statement shoes, so we found 12 very festive flats and loafers that won’t kill your feet.

Real-Housewives-Handbag-Picks

If you’ve been reading these posts for a while, you probably know that my tone can veer toward snarky from time to time. Ladies and gents, nothing tests my powers of snark-restraint like writing about the Real Housewives of Basically Anywhere. I do try to hold back, because even though Real Housewives are easy targets, we mustn’t forget that they are real people, too.

Yes, they actively court the paparazzi on a pre-Kanye Kardashian level, and yes, some of them have made an art out of turning every mundane aspect of their lives into a Life & Style section headline, but they are, at heart, human beings like the rest of us…with amazing handbags. Check out a few of their latest bag picks below.

Beas Holiday Wishlist

If you asked anyone in the PurseBlog offices how to describe my personal style, I’d bet money that one of the first three words they’d use is “minimal.” When it comes to clothing and accessories, I like clean lines and neutral tones, and I’m a sucker for a good structured bag. Read More…

RealReal Top 10 2014

All of your social media feeds are probably filled with lists of the most popular things from 2014, from most googled celeb to best designer and more. We of course care about the handbags and while we will be doing our own year in review, we love seeing trends from some of our favorite partners.

I’m excited to exclusively share the top ten best selling handbags this year from The RealReal. The list has a few old timers that are surprising to see. However, with The RealReal being a luxury consignment and resale site, it’s interesting to see what people are looking for in the secondhand market.

Speaking of which, Chief Merchant of The RealReal, Rati Levesque says, “In looking at our top ten best selling handbags this year, it’s evident that brand classics like the Louis Vuitton speedy and the Balenciaga Motocross Bag continue to appeal to the luxury shopper, despite new designers and styles emerging on a regular basis. These classics have become iconic to the brand and are hard to compete with.”

Gucci Gift Guide

I already showed you a few of my favorite perfect Gucci gifts for the season, and today I’m sharing more–a few items from Gucci just wasn’t enough.

Louboutin-Polish_7

Christian Louboutin‘s red sole is iconic. While most luxury shoppers can recognize this distinct shade of red a mile away, the color actually started with nail polish, and now it’s become a polish once again. Read More…

Holiday Travel Essentials

Members of the PurseBlog team have already started leaving our little New York City nest in pursuit of holiday travel adventures (and I will be joining their ranks tomorrow), so now seemed like a good time to contemplate the best-case scenario for what to carry with us when we fly, drive or train-ride our way to our holiday destinations. Below, check out a few of our picks. Read More…

TS Notice 12_17 The shoe of the week over on TalkShoes is this Charlotte Olympia Fiesta Wedge, which just might make you want to shimmy. We also have another celebrity to add to the Casadei Blade pump fan list, and that’s Kate Beckinsale. Our editor, Katherine, picked out everything she wanted this holiday season, and trust us, it’s a lot of good stuff. Speaking of the holidays, why not kick back the end of 2014 in these 12 pairs of very festive holiday flats? But if heels are more your thing, we understand; we also found the best nude pumps for under $500.
