It’s Friday, and Friday is exciting for two reasons: Not only do you (probably) not have to go to work tomorrow, and we spent yesterday afternoon scouring the Internet to bring you the Best Bag Deals of the Week, just like we do every week.
You know, there’s something thrilling about coming across bags that fall into the pre-order category. Now don’t get me wrong, anything that is pre-order can also make my eye twitch while simultaneously making me want to pull out my hair.
I spent last week in Florida for what was supposed to be a last hurrah of summer; the only problems with that plan were Tropical Storm Isaac and a wicked cold I brought from New York.
Labor day is upon us and while it’s always a bittersweet holiday, the seriously good sales ease my pain over the impending shorter days and weekends without beaches. Tory Burch’s Labor Day sale just landed in my inbox and I had to share.
The tiered sale allows you to save more, the more you purchase. Save 20% on purchases of $300 or more, 25% on purchases of $500 or more and if you really splurge, save 30% on purchases over $750. Everyone at PurseBlog is lusting after Tory’s Priscilla Top Handle Cross Body bag – now is our shot!

Back when Anne Hathaway was cast as Catwoman in Dark Knight Rises, there was a lot of hemming and hawing over whether or not she’d be able to pull off the beloved comic book role. Inexplicably (to me, at least), people have some harsh opinions about Anne, despite the fact that she seems to be, at worst, a perfectly competent actress and a pleasant, intelligent person in interviews.
The perennial cool kids of Opening Ceremony have taken one more step into the accessories realm: just this week, they’ve launched their first in-house bag line, which feels like a long time coming. As you might expect, the bags ring up at a contemporary price point and they look like exactly the sort of thing that Opening Ceremony’s hipper-than-thou clientele wants to carry when their It Bags start to feel overexposed.
As much as the PurseBlog team isn’t head-over-heels in love with the Mulberry Del Rey Bag, we do love Mulberry as a whole, and we really love getting a behind-the-scenes look at how a bag is made.
It’s rare that I come across a line of bags at Neiman Marcus that I don’t immediately recognize, but that’s what happened when I was browsing the retailer’s new fall arrivals online recently. The SW1 Podplaza Satchel, above, immediately caught my eye for its spare, confident design; it takes some nerve to design a bag that’s so aggressively minimal, because the eye doesn’t have anything by which to be conveniently distracted when evaluating the finished product.
The line between inspiration and imitation is wafer thin in the fashion industry. Any time we post something about a bag that looks like another bag, no matter whether the post is positive or negative, a whole host of people chime in to both agree and disagree in seemingly equal measures (and with plenty of enthusiasm for their points of view).
Cole Haan has really made an impression on me the last few seasons. The brand keeps turning out luxe essentials made from rich leathers in some seriously saturated hues – all at a price point that’s within reach.
Today on Rue La La, shop fall Cole Haan pieces like textured leather bags and wallets, classic, oversized sunglasses and sleek leather belts. It’s never a bad idea to have plenty of the above to freshen up your fall wardrobe – and at Rue La La’s insider prices, it’s never been a better time to test drive the brand or add to your Cole Haan collection. And if the Mr. in your life is in need of some accessory upgrades, don’t forget to check out the men’s offerings as well.
I love when a brand steps into the forefront of the accessories business and secures its place as a new designer to be coveted. This is precisely what 3.1 Phillip Lim has done with his handbag line, and now it seems everyone is catching on.
