PurseBlog may be a site about designer handbags, but more importantly it is about the woman who loves designer handbags. She lives a certain lifestyle, she loves her jewelry, sunglasses, wallet, and clothing. She may style her outfit around her bag, but she is very aware of everything she is wearing.

Last night, the Real Housewives of Orange County continued their race to the bottom by trying their hands at comedy. Slade and Gretchen, specifically, which went just about how you’d expect it to go. Because nothing else even remotely interesting has happened in Slade’s life except his perpetual housewife-adjacency, his routine was all about how to hunt and capture your very own reality star.

When I see red, yellow, and blue paired together I am immediately reminded of my childhood. I specifically remember my first watch that featured all of these colors and some silly designs. From these primary colors we can make a range of other colors, but today’s feature is solely about red, yellow, and blue.

A few days ago, PurseBlog friend BryanBoy tweeted that Marni designer Consuelo Castiglioni would be the perfect replacement for Karl Lagerfeld once he’s ready to move on from Fendi, and I can’t help but completely agree. Marni’s signature retro-minimal approach gets better and more fully realized by the season, and Consuelo’s sense for accessories and embellishment keeps improving right along with it.

Lions and tigers and stripes, oh my! I can’t help but think of the circus when I look at the Fendi Studded One + One Drawstring-Top Satchel. The pairing of a lot of color and additional texture makes this bag an attention grabber.

For some reason, I would really love it if Dolce & Gabbana wowed us all with an It Bag. I’m not sure exactly why I’m so interested in Dolce in particular having a big accessories moment, but every time one of their collections comes around, I mentally cross my fingers in hopes that they’ll give us the next Celine Luggage Tote.

Elie Tahari Fall ’12.

Moda Operandi is great for a lot of reasons, but I like it for one of the less talked-about ones: It gives us the opportunity to see a bunch of non-runway accessories immediately following a brand’s runway show, long before those images would normally find their way to public consumption.

Last night Vlad and I sat down with a huge bowl of popcorn (among many other treats) to watch the 2012 Oscars. Only a few of the attendees outfits really caught my attention, but from the moment Michelle Williams graced my TV screen, I was obsessed.

Before taking a look at the stills from Versace Fall 2012, I had heard the collection repeatedly described as Rooney Mara-inspired and high-end goth and all of these other things that made me think that the handbags stood a chance in hell of being really, really good.
