Earlier this week, the PurseBlog Team along with over a third of our country was and continues to be affected by the devastating Superstorm Sandy. We fared extremely well and feel very lucky, but others are still struggling.
We’ve showered a bit of love on another of Matthew Williamson’s clutches in the recent past, but now that I’ve seen the Matthew Williamson Bead-Embellished Suede Clutch, I feel the need to do it again. The last clutch was a hippie-chic take on opulent brocade, but this design approaches from the opposite direction: it’s a modernist take on the classic hippie look.
I hope each and every one of you is safe and sound with Sandy pounding the Eastern US. If you still have power, you may want to cheer yourself up by checking out the Bottega Veneta sale thats about to start on Rue La La. I have to say, I am impressed. HUGE variety of knot clutches, cosmetics bags, pouches and hobos in a ton of colors. It’s like an intrecciato bonanza!
Usually for Man Bag Monday, we talk about the bags you (or your man) should buy. We’ve seen some beautiful choices recently – Valextra, Lanvin, Givenchy. They’ve been so beautiful, in fact, that an unsuspecting first-time man bag shopper might get the impression that choosing a good bag is idiot-proof.
