Coach-Peanuts-Bags-and-Accessories

We are ringing in September in the U.S. with a holiday weekend, which means shopping! We hope this week’s PurseForum Roundup inspires you to make some well-chosen purchases this weekend, or perhaps just to spend some time with us in one of the dozens of threads dedicated to, well…just about everything!

Rag-and-Bone-Aston-Bucket-Bag

If you’re an American fashion shopper, you probably own something from Rag & Bone. The brand has firmly cemented itself as a solid source of elevated, seasonless basics that are somehow cooler than all the other basics from all the other brands.

Bag-Deals-September-4

We’re heading into the long Labor Day weekend, when sales are blessedly abundant, and that means we’ve got some great finds for our weekly roundup of online bag deals. Neiman Marcus in particular has a lot of great bags, but most of them are marked with a sell-out warning; if you’re hoping to score big, you’re going to have to act quickly.

Check out the deals below, and for a continually updated list of sales and discounts, check out our Deals Page. Read More…

Fringe-Bags-Under-500-Dollars
Louis-Vuitton-Dora-Ultra-Soft-Bag-MM

Since arriving at Louis Vuitton for the Fall 2014 collection, creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere has overseen the creation of a handful of new handbag designs the company hopes will attract luxury shoppers who feel ambivalent about the company’s traditional monogram offerings.

Saint-Laurent-Rive-Gauche-Cabas-Tote

I’m currently sitting in the PurseBlog office in a backless tank top and a pair of Nikes, but I haven’t always worked in fashion, so I’m well aware that most women don’t get the same latitude when it comes to what they wear (and carry) to work.

Celebrity-Bags-September-3

Celebs were extremely busy this week, and if you don’t already feel like you’re wasting the precious remainder of summer in the office, you will after you finish reading this post. Rihanna launched a new fragrance, Kris Jenner just released her new cookbook (yes!) and everyone else was flocking to and from the VMAs or checking out exotic destinations like, uh, Toronto.

Christian-Louboutin-Lipstick

Christian Louboutin’s first foray into beauty was nail polish, which made total sense–his famous shoes adorn and accent a woman’s feet, just as nail color so often does. Louboutin’s next beauty venture, lipstick, also makes a certain amount of sense–his signature color is a vibrant red, after all, and no place in beauty is the color more beloved than on the lips.

Tory-Burch-Embroidered-Medium-Saddle-Bag

If you think of Tory Burch bags and can only call to mind logo totes, you’ve been wrong for a while now. The brand’s runway bags, in particular, have been interesting and highly detailed for years now, and doing that at a relatively accessible price point is always worthy of note.

Christian-Dior-Diorama-Bag-Crocodile

Of all the major European luxury houses, Christian Dior‘s status in the handbag world has arguably risen the most over the past few seasons, and that means we (and many of you) look forward to a new line from the brand more than we ever have before.
