Vintage Hermes from the Reserve at RueLaLa (1)

Get excited, everyone: we have lots of vintage and pre-owned Hermes loveliness to show you to speed up the end of you work week. Our friends at Rue La La are having another one of their highly anticipated From the Reserve sales starting tomorrow morning at 11 a.m., and it is chock full of all the Hermes goodies that you could ever dream of.

I know, I know. From the title of this post, I know what you must be thinking. Oh joy, another Kardashian-inspired post! (Apply either a sarcastic or gleeful tone, whichever you feel is correct.) The Kardashian sisters are in Miami filming yet another season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, and earlier in this week, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian spent a glamorous day at the beach. Well, maybe “glamorous” isn’t the correct word – their presence brought out both a huge paparazzi mob and lots of rubber-neckers. So maybe for them, it was just another typical day at the beach.

Kim was spotted wearing a white one-piece Michael Kors swimsuit, a somewhat out-of-the-ordinary wardrobe choice for her killer curves, while sister Kourtney was dressed, oddly, like a totally normal person. Wearing rainbow-stripped shorts and a plain V-neck tee, her most glamourous accessory was her yellow Goyard St. Louis bag. (more…)

Real Housewives of Miami (4)
TV Show Recaps

The upshot of last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Miami was this: Joanna and Marta shouldn’t be living together, Ana should sign her divorce papers and get it over with and no one should pick a fight with a drag queen at a night club.

Of course the focus of PurseBlog is handbags, but the lifestyle that goes along with loving designer handbags spreads into the entire luxury lifestyle. Handbags may be my first true love, but shoes, jewelery, and clothing are a close second.

Bag Deals

I wait and wait and wait each year for Bloomingdales Friends and Family sale to roll around. Almost all full price and sale merchandise is 20% off, resulting in great steals for brand new arrivals and even better breaks on the sale racks.

Chadwick Bell Spring/Summer 2013 (26)
Fashion Week

It was only last season that I attended my first Chadwick Bell show, and I felt like I found a little slice of heaven. While his shows are not absurdly packed – they’re shown in the intimate Studio setting at Lincoln Center – the entire vibe feels like you are going on a journey together.

Brahmin Weekender Bag

Orange has never been my color of choice, and not just when it comes to fashion. I mean that to me, orange was the color of last resort and tended to be the last color chosen out of the Crayola box when I was a kid.

Tods Spring 2013 Handbags

I’ve been feeling a growing excitement towards Tod’s recently and it all started with their Tod’s Tote Bag. The brand is known for their beautiful products, but I felt a bit lackluster about the designs they were putting out – it all seemed too restrained, maybe even too refined.

The Many Bags of Rachel Bilson

There are no two ways about it: Rachel Bilson‘s bag game is absolutely sick. I always knew that, but when I actually sat down to look at paparazzi shots of her and all the fabulous things she’s carried, I was even more impressed.

We were just notified of a private sale happening over at Ella Moss, purveyor of super soft pieces with a west coast style. I’ve always been a fan of the brand’s striped, stretchy pieces and they’ve expanded their product offering to include sweaters, outwear and even shoes!

Now through 9/28, save 30% on select merchandise during the Ella Moss Private Sale.


Kate Spade Spring/Summer 2013 (1)
Fashion Week

Kate Spade has done such a stellar job branding itself that when you go to one of its presentations, you know approximately what to expect: bright colors, unrelenting girlishness and just a little dash of sass.

Hermès Festival des Métiers (1)

I’m not sure when it was that I became truly aware of the world of luxury but when I did, I learned very quickly that luxury products felt better, lasted longer and true luxury is inherent to the craft of the product.
