We’ve reached the final PurseForum Roundup of 2012, and the PurseBlog and PurseForum teams want to wish you all the very best for 2013. We thought it would be fun to finish out the year with a look at some wonderful collection threads from across the PurseForum, so after the jump, you’ll find a selection of the most exciting acquisitions and additions that our Forum members have made this year!
Here’s the artist lovingly known as “X-tina”, carrying a black, washed lambskin Givenchy Pandora Bag during a little shopping excursion with her boyfriend Matthew Rutler in Aspen, Colorado. You can own Christina Aguilera‘s exact bag if you’re willing and ready to pony up $2020 at Bergdorf Goodman.
At this point in the season, it’d be reasonable to be a little shopped out. You’re here reading this post, though, which means that you probably have a little bit left in your tank (or your wallet).
Let us all take a moment to ponder the crazy-amazing Christmas that A-list infant Blue Ivy Carter just experienced (and has already forgotten). Photographers snapped celeb super parents Beyonce and Jay-Z exiting Mary Arnold Toys on the Upper East Side a few days before X-mas, where they were presumably buying some last-minute gifts for their one-year-old daughter.
During college, I logged a few years working at the local Best Buy, so you could say that I’m intimately familiar with the ins and outs of the holiday shopping season. We all know about the first two phases – Black Friday, followed by regular gift shopping – but the third is less talked-about.
Just like last week, we’re using the busy holiday travel time to take a look at an actress whose rapidly rising star is second only to her rapidly expanding bag collection. Jessica Chastain may not be a household name quite yet, but with the amount of praise she’s received for her roles in films like The Help and the just-released Zero Dark Thirty, it won’t be long.
Well, we spent the bulk of yesterday providing detailed info on all the best sales and deals to be had after Christmas – imagine our delight when we found out that Neiman Marcus is offering an additional 40% off already reduced prices! Today through Friday, December 28th only.
Get it, girls!
If you’ve been paying attention over the past few years, then you already know that J.Crew has ambitions beyond its mid-priced mall-brand origins. CEO Mickey Drexler and Creative Director Jenna Lyons have helped exponentially elevate the brand’s fashion status, and while J.Crew remains a good source for accessibly priced sweaters and cute statement jewelry, the store would also like to sell you handbags that cost four figures.
Today is my personal favorite holiday. Since my family spends Christmas going to the movies and testing out the various Chinese restaurants on the Upper West Side, I’m not super attached to Christmas. I am, however, attached to the day-after-Christmas sales.
We love any sale that emphasizes handbags, obviously, and the Semi-Annual Handbag Sale within the Bloomingdale’s After Christmas Sale and Clearance is pretty great, especially if you’re looking to score a bag from designers like Rebecca Minkoff, Tory Burch, Marc by Marc Jacobs or Kate Spade.
