Summer is busy. Kids are out of school, people go on vacation, people eat lunch outside instead of in front of their computers. That means you might have missed something here on PurseBlog, but on this, the last day of June, we have you covered.

Matches-Fashion-Finale-Sale-June-2015If you’ve been saving your sale season budget for the biggest markdowns, now’s the time to pounce. MATCHESFASHION.COM‘s sale section is now up to 70% off, and there’s still a pretty big selection of good stuff left at those prices, including bags from brands like Chloé, Givenchy, Saint Laurent and Valentino. As always, we recommend swift and decisive action; these are final markdowns, so the numbers aren’t going to get any better.

If you’ve been contemplating the purchase of a Céline bag for fall, we have some information you’re going to want to consider while you plot. We just got ahold of the brand’s Winter 2015 lookbook (which, confusingly, is the group of bags debuting with what the industry generally refers to as “fall” collections), and we’ve got all the images below, plus pricing for each bag.


If you thought sale season was over, think again. We dipped into the sale section at Saks yesterday, and it didn’t take very long for us to start filling our shopping carts with totally lust-worthy bags, shoes and accessories, all up to 60% off. If you’re looking for a serious deal on a super-fashionable piece at far below regular retail, you’d be smart to give Saks a look ASAP–many of the best items in the sale are 50% off or more, and that means they’ll soon be snapped up.

Below, we picked over a dozen of our favorite Saks sale finds to get you started on a little bit of mid-week shopping. Check out our favorites from the bag, shoe and accessories sections below, or shop the full sale via Saks! Read More…


Pity the A-list celebrity daughter: born into wealth and privilege, hounded by the paparazzi simply because of her heritage, able to get her hands on any luxury item she desires with just a little namedropping…wait, did I say “pity”? ENVY. I meant envy.


Bag: Valentino My Rockstud Embroidered Flap Bag

Price: $4,395 via Bergdorf Goodman

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Valentino usually reserves its intricate signature embroidery for runway dresses, so it’s always a pleasure when some of it makes a jump to bags, as it does on this beautifully detailed top handle.

TS Notice If Demi Lovato’s Saint Laurent Bianca Sandals look familiar, that’s because we’ve spotted her wearing them once before on TalkShoes! Even celebs have love affairs with their shoes. Malone Souliers was one of the designers we told you to keep on your radar this year, and the brand’s Fall 2015 collection is making a very big impression in footwear. We also spotted Kiernan Shipka at the Coach 2015 Summer Party (our editor bumped into her there and confirmed how adorable she looked), wearing one of the brand’s edgy wedges.


I know two things for sure about Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron: she loves neutral handbags and hates the paparazzi. Both of those are defensible positions, in my mind, and they’re both clearly on display when you thumb through Charlize’s public handbag history, as documented by the dreaded paps.


It’s always Fashion Week somewhere. Resort shows are barely done, but last week, the menswear world was traversing Europe, debuting Spring 2016 styles left and right. Most men’s shows don’t put much of an emphasis on accessories, but there is one very notable exception: Louis Vuitton.
