And you thought you didn’t see many celebs shopping at Coach… Well, Ashlee Simpson does (if she even counts as a celeb). It looks like Little Simpson did some major shopping at Coach– I wonder what goodies she has in the bag?

Because Friday’s need a little fun (especially this one- Vlad heads back to Germany without me for 6 weeks), let’s play Name That Bag! For starters we have Jessica Simpson, who recently has been seen finding out just how much fun alcohol and no husband around can be.

Sometimes I need a random post on a celeb- it is a ‘fix’ for me of sorts. What is up with Victoria B. lookin so thin? My guess is some of you will say it is natural while others (like myself) will disagree that she eats 5 times a day, all well-balanced meals.

Granted, not everyone has the monetary assets to buy bags that sell for thousands of dollars. The Chloe Paddington may only go for about a grant and a half, but then its availability (or lack thereof) creates another big issue that potential ‘it’ bag buyers must face.

Along with other bag blog friends of ours, namely The Bag Blog, Thebaglady, In My Bag, and bagcrazy, our very own Purse Blog was included in The Budget Fashionista‘s comprehensive collection of fashion blogs. As you may know some of the sites, there’s also a few that will further extend your fashion horizon and aid you in your Quest for the Ultimate Pretty!

On with our day of Tuesday Totes, I have found yet another brown tote. As much as I am a lover of totes, all of the browns for fall are making me feel very drab. But this Coach Suede Beaded Tote is at least easier on your wallet than many other bags out there.

If we are up to date with our fall fashion, like we should be, we all know that shearling is ‘in’. I mean waaay in style. But just because you are a high end designer with a well-known name, it doesn’t mean that each of your bags will be a hit even if they implement the looks of the season.

Today is the first day our site is ever strictly dedicated to totes. It’s Tote Tuesday here at the Purse Blog! Hope you all enjoy all the fashion of toting :-)
