3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2013 Handbags Pre-sale via Moda Operandi (2)

Every now and then, I see a bag and immediately know that I definitely, without a doubt, need to have it and would love it forever; that happened for me during the 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2013 show.

Lily Aldridge out in downtown New York

Victoria’s Secret model/rock n’ roll wifey Lily Aldridge was recently spotted in NYC quite expertly matching two of THE hottest and most coveted designer pieces currently on the market – a black and leopard print Celine Luggage Tote and a pair of Chloe Susanna Booties.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills s03 e15 recap
TV Show Recaps

Now that the Brandi-versus-Adrienne kerfuffle seems to be more or less resolved (for the show’s purposes, at least), what are we to do with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills now? Bravo’s answer to that seems to be, “Why, go to Paris, of course,” but it seemed to be an entirely arbitrary decision on the part of the cast, based only on the fact that Yolanda was headed there and Lisa was going to be in St.

The Best Handbags of the 2013 Academy Awards

Ahh, the Oscars! There’s nothing like a good red carpet, and the 2013 Academy Awards didn’t disappoint when it came to interesting evening bags. (Although, in our opinion, the clothes were better at the Golden Globes.) Roger Vivier once again won the night, but there was a pleasant amount of variation among the attendees.

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 Handbags (19)
Fashion Week

Big shocker, you guys, but Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana? They’re from Italy, and they’d like you to know more about it. In fact, Dolce & Gabbana has been telling you about it for seasons, often through extremely literal handbag embellishments and occasional pasta jewelry.

Bag Deals

I love expensive bags just as much as the next girl, but just because I talk about them often doesn’t mean they magically appear on my doorstep when I wake up. I might not be the best deal hunter, but I am great at finding beautiful bags at great prices.

Michelle Dockery carries Burberry (1)

Here’s Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery, about to thrust herself into a waiting crowd of British paparazzos after exiting the Burberry Fall 2013 runway show. On her arm is a Burberry Prorsum Handbag from Pre-Fall 2013, and as is perhaps to be expected, her trench and pumps both look suspiciously Burberry.

Jennifer Lawrence Miss Dior Handbag Ads (2)

We’re huge fans of actress Jennifer Lawrence around the PurseBlog offices, and she’s having quite the year. The Hunger Games movie did great at the box office, she consistently chooses red carpet looks that are both beautiful and interesting, and, oh yeah, she won an Oscar last night for a movie in which she got to make out with Bradley Cooper; it’s just win after win for Ms.

Fendi Fur Bags for Fall 2013 (17)

Of all of the fraught issues in fashion (and believe me, there are plenty), fur is probably one of the most fraught. It has both ardent defenders and detractors, but mostly, luxury consumers are somewhere in the middle, just like yours truly – aware of the ethical issues with wearing fur, and not necessarily a fur customer, but also not constitutionally opposed to someday becoming a fur customer, were the right piece to cross our paths.

Prada Fall 2013 Handbags  (13)

My feelings about any Prada collection are complicated. I know that I’ll love what Miuccia Prada sends down the runway, with few exceptions, but I also know that the bags are almost sure to underwhelm me.
