Reese Witherspoon carries a black Reed Krakoff bag in California (5)

Reese Witherspoon was recently spotted shopping at the uber-popular Brentwood Country Mart in Los Angeles (a great spot for celeb-spotting) with her hubs Jim Toth and son Tennessee (a true little Southern dumpling). On her arm is a sleek, black calfskin Reed Krakoff Atlantique Bionic Mini Tote. Like a lot of the brand’s designs, the Atlantique Mini has a sharp, slightly futuristic edge.

PurseBlog Want It Wednesday November 27

With Black Friday deals looming in just two short days, you’d think that we could put our nascent acquisitiveness on hold for 48 hours while we wait to see where things fall (namely, where prices fall) after the biggest sale day of the year comes to pass. You’d be wrong! Our desire to shop knows literally no bounds, so today’s Want It Wednesday is full of things that we’d like to own, even at full price.

Beauty Gift Guide

As much as we’d like to give everyone a handbag for the holidays (and we really, really would), that’s just not an idea that’s within our budgets this year. Makeup, skincare and haircare, on the other hand, are a much more price-flexible gift idea; a $30 eyeshadow palette is delightful, but so is a $600 set of Tom Ford lipsticks.

Beauty gifts run the price continuum, and there is literally not a single person on this planet who can’t be plied with a lovely set of hand creams or some new nail polish.
