News broke yesterday that Lily Allen staged her first live music gig in FOUR YEARS during the Etam lingerie runway show yesterday in Paris, singing her hit single “Smile” as ladies in barely there undies paraded down the catwalk. Here she is upon her return home at the St. Pancras train station in London, juggling a Chanel Coco Cocoon Tote and a Saint Laurent Classic Duffel Bag.

The Best Bags of Milan Fashion Week Fall 2013

I can’t believe it’s already the end of Milan Fashion Week! Paris is underway as we speak, but before we fully commit to a new city, we’d like to take a look at some of the best pieces and trends that came out of Italy for Fall 2013. Both fur and exotics are still going strong, and you might want to look for pieces in bright red and cyan to hit stores six months from now.

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 ShoesIf you’re only reading PurseBlog, you’re missing out on half the goodies we have to offer. If you thought Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2013 handbags were a trip, you ain’t seen nothin’ until you get a look at the brand’s crazy, sometimes gravity-defying Fall 2013 shoes. Yes, that’s a climbing garden in the sole of that sandal.

If that doesn’t tickle your fancy and you’d prefer something a little more modern, we’ve also rounded up a baker’s dozen of single-sole shoes that should take you straight into spring and maybe even a little beyond.

J. Mendel Runway Fall/Winter 2013 (1)

Sometimes I find it hard to go to a show at fashion week and not get carried away in the beauty of it all. I end up leaving a show and thinking how magical it was, but then I remember that just because the experience is great doesn’t mean the clothing was as well. That’s absolutely not the case for any J.

The Many Bags of Kerry Washington

If you’ve been anywhere near your Twitter account on a recent Thursday evening, you might have noticed that basically everyone on Earth watches (and loves) Scandal. I’m hesitant to admit that I’ve never seen the show, but it’s the next thing up on my catch-up list after I get done re-watching The West Wing on Netflix, which is actually a fairly appropriate progression.

Discount Christian Louboutin I think that Rue La La may have just hit the mother lode. Today’s sale features discount Christian Louboutin shoes (there are a few bags too!) and ladies, it’s unbelievable. Think basic black styles that never go on sale, plus seasonal merchandise you might have missed out on. There are a handful of items from the coveted spike collection, too. I won’t waste any more of your time – get on over to Rue La La when the sale begins at 11 AM EST and try your hand at scoring some brand new Louboutins.

The Proenza Schouler PS1 Mini Messenger Bags

If you peruse PurseBlog articles on Proenza Schouler, you will see that the entire team adores Proenza, and we say so often and without reserve. Right now, though, I’ve got a bone to pick with the brand; all I want to know is, why did they ruin a good thing with their beyond crazy hit, the PS1, by taking a tomboyish satchel and trying to turn it into a ladylike, chain-strapped shoulder bag?

Valentino Rockstud Collection (6)

A few seasons ago, Valentino was synonymous with bows, but that all took a change when the brand introduced its Rockstud collection; now the brand that signifies femininity and elegance also provides just the right amount of edge. I’m the definition of a Valentino Rockstud girl because I turn to well-made items but also like a little spunk, and since the inception, this line has spoken to me.

What's In Dee Hilfiger's Bag (17)

Megs and I had the unique opportunity to meet and chat with mom, wife and designer Dee Hilfiger in her and Tommy’s unbelievably beautiful home atop the iconic Plaza Hotel.

Visit the gallery to see the full feature and find out what’s in Dee’s bag!

Princess Charlene of Monaco carries an Armani bag at Milan Fashion Week (1)

It must be fun to be royalty. Princess Charlene of Monaco has been jet-setting from fashion week to fashion week all over the continent. A few weeks ago, we spotted her at the Dior Haute Couture show in Paris with a Dior Lady Dior Tote, and now here she is, headed in to the Armani Fall 2013 fashion show at Milan Fashion Week carrying an Armani Spring 2013 Runway Satchel.
