Hilary Duff Louis Vuitton Empreinte Speedy Goyard St. Louis Tote

Here’s Hilary Duff, leaving a fitness studio in West Hollywood, carrying a Louis Vuitton Speedy Empreinte 25 Bandoulière Bag and a Goyard St. Louis Tote. Strangely enough, we’ve seen Hilary carry both of these bags before, which is a definite first/sign of the end times.

Busk and Bask Loess Wrap Clutch

Minimal accessories are having a moment. From Celine Trios to Mansur Gavriel Buckets, a whole host of fashion consumers have decided that they’re largely sick of bags that are overdone and overwrought, and with that decision has come a wave of tightly edited, pared-down pieces that are easy, functional and understated. To get the look under $200, we highly recommend the Busk and Bask Loess Wrap Clutch. Read More…

Hermes Kelly Watch

Hermès has been in the news this week for reasons other than the handbags to which we generally pay attention, and that’s had me thinking about the full world of uncompromising luxury that the company has created for itself. You can get an Hermès spin on practically anything from desk organizers to animal sculpture, and for the next 12 days, you can get Hermès jewelry and timepieces at Moda Operandi.

Chanel Fall 2014 Ad Campaign 13

If you were expecting Chanel’s Fall 2014 collection to be posed in a Target near you for the brand’s fall ads just because of the supermarket runway show, you were wrong. Karl Lagerfeld has gone in a workout direction for Chanel’s seasonal ads, choosing to focus on the sporty side of the collection (including tons of sneakers) instead of the grocery-themed details. With that in mind, the ads feature brand favorite Cara Delevingne and Binx Walton, a boxing gym and approximately one zillion of Chanel’s pre-fall and fall handbags. Read More…

Dior Cuir Cannage Privee Perfume

I spent a lot of years on our PurseForum before I officially joined the company, and during that time I saw hundreds, if not thousands, of bag lovers reference the divine smell of a new bag’s leather. Fashion is an experience that usually only involves one or two senses, but luxury leather has an instantly recognizable stink, and to love bags is to love that smell. With Dior Cuir Cannage Privée Perfume, you can now apply it directly to your person. Read More…

Jimmy Choo Zadie Pleated Shoulder Bag

Bag: Jimmy Choo Zadie Pleated Shoulder Bag

Price: $1,050 via Net-a-Porter

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: After the departure of creative director Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo has been on the road to a more modern, refined look. Handbags were always a spot that could have used improvement under Mellon, and this little bag embraces the detail-laden Choo aesthetic without spilling over into ridiculous territory.

Nicky Hilton Chanel Flap Bag

Here’s heiress Nicky Hilton, flitting about amongst the common folk of NYC, looking uber-feminine and carrying a pastel pink Chanel Flap Bag, of course. This is one of Nicky’s many, many Flap Bags, and you check out the rest of her Flap Bag stash in “The Many Bags of Nicky Hilton”, which is probably due for a redux soon.
