The stars of The Other Woman have been promoting their new movie all across the globe. Last week, we spotted Kate Upton carrying a Fendi 3Jours Shopping Tote while doing a little shopping with costar Leslie Mann in Paris, and this week we have Kate Upton and Cameron Diaz carrying (sort of) matching Celine Luggage Totes at the airport in Sydney, Australia!
Over the weekend, the PurseBlog team was scattered around the country – I was in Atlanta, Megs and Vlad were in Ft. Lauderdale, Bea was at Coachella and both Katherine and Shannon were holding down the fort in NYC. Somehow, even in our disparate locations, we all got to enjoy some gloriously sunny, warm weather that only served to remind us that we should probably stock up on some sunglasses for the coming season. As a result, that’s the focus of this week’s Want It Wednesday. Read More…
What we’ve always found true on PurseForum has once again proved itself true on Instagram: people love to share their accessories acquisitions with people who appreciate them. In our new series, Instagram’s Handbag Celebrities, we’ll bring you close-up looks at the women who are doing that in the most hypnotic fashion on the popular photo-sharing platform. For our first installment, we went with one of the best: @upcloseandstylish. Read More…
Generally, stars vary their day-to-day handbag choices quite a lot. Not only does the average celebrity have plenty of money to buy whichever bag she might desire, but most are also regularly sent the Next Big Thing by brands with which they have existing relationships. Not only does it help the brands subtly promote their products, but it gives stars new things to be photographed with every time they leave their houses. Sometimes, though, a star loves a bag so much that it becomes a constant companion, and that appears to be the case with Taylor Swift and her Dolce & Gabbana Sara Bag. Read More…
Bag: Gucci Swing Leather Tote
Price: $995 via Gucci
Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Gucci has quickly turned into one of my favorite brands over the past few seasons. The Swing Tote caught my attention for both the classic, clean design and functional, long double handles. Furthermore, this bag costs under $1,000, a rare feat in the premier designer handbag world.
Gisele Bundchen was recently spotted leaving lunch at Nello in NYC to embark on a little shopping spree. She’s carrying an Alexander Wang Diego Leopard Bucket Bag, which was produced several years ago and is completely sold out. Gisele is a friend of the brand and has walked in Wang’s runway shows before (despite the fact that she rarely deigns to walk during NYFW), so it makes sense that she managed to get her hands on one.
This is a trunkshow that needs little introduction. We’re huge fans of both Moda Operandi and Heritage Auctions, and when they team up, they give online customers unprecedented access to the rarest, most luxurious bags in the world. From now until April 28, you can shop a lust-worthy selection of vintage and pre-owned Hermes bags in both exotics and standard leathers, plus a few leather accessories and silk scarves.
Coachella is a unique event. Not only is it the only rich-hippie desert concert weekend that I know of, but it’s a rare opportunity to spot celebrities mingling among mere mortals with relatively little security or separation. That also means it’s an opportunity for handbag-spotting, and although some celebs opt to leave their expensive accessories at home, plenty of others carry whatever handbags they’d use to go out to dinner back in Beverly Hills.
