Fashion Insiders Wish List 2014

We’ve brought you bountiful gift guides to help you shop for every single person and situation this holiday season, and I wanted to finish up by asking some of my favorite fashion insiders what’s on their wish lists this year. I spoke with style stars like Nicky Hilton, Rebecca Minkoff and Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger, I found out not only what was on each of their wish lists but also what handbag they’re lusting after this moment.

TS Notice 12_22This week, our #ShowMyShoes Instagram roundup on TalkShoes was full of studs, glitter and lots of red soles. We want to know about your holiday pedicure plans, and as for us, nothing says “holidays” quite like this Chanel and Jin Soon polish combo. Diane Kruger wore a pair of Adidas sneakers out to lunch, but we can’t help but question her choice of socks. Lastly, be sure to check out the best shoe deals happening now, because after the stress of holiday shopping, it’s time to treat yourself to a little something special.

The upcoming collection has new versions of all the hits Givenchy lovers have come to know and love, plus a couple of new designs.


We’re all well-acquainted with the metallic, sequin-covered ensembles that usually characterize New Year’s Eve fashion. Because we’re always fans of being a little bit more creative, we’ve thought about the aesthetics that characterize some of the US’s and Europe’s style capitals and taken the liberty of assembling the best accessories for NYE celebrations in each locale.

Happy Friday Before Christmas, Roundup readers! We want to wish all of our friends and PurseForum family a wonderful holiday season, no matter how you celebrate. This week, we made some quick stops on our journey through the decked halls of the PurseForum; we hope you enjoy our peeks at what our members have been up to.

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.

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.


The holidays will be here before we know it, and now is the perfect time to grab a last minute gift or two, like a great clutch or pouch (Olympia Le-Tan and 3.1 Phillip Lim, we are looking at you). It’s also a great time to congratulate yourself on another successful holiday shopping season and treat yourself to something new.

Don’t miss out on some of the awesome handbag discounts happening below, and after you’re done browsing these deals, head over to our Deals Page for more sales happening all across the Internet.
