Celine Dion’s lust for Celine bags can clearly not be sated by just one. (Can’t say we blame her.) Here she is carrying a sublimely navy blue calf leather Celine Classic Box Bag with gold hardware, while ambling around Paris with her husband.
Fendi hit big with its 2Jours totes, and the brand has put a playful spin on the seriously popular design with a line of monster-inspired bags and accessories. By now you’ve seen the bag monsters floating around the Internet (and maybe even on the bags of your friends), but Fendi has released an entire line of monstrous items.
If you’ve got a big family, lots of friends or simply a long list of people with whom you’d like to curry favor, this time of year can get…intense. We’re staring down the barrel of a week that culminates in the biggest shopping day of the year (and make sure to check back with us on Friday for a comprehensive guide to the best sales and deals on the Internet), and figuring out where or how to start can be a task in and of itself.
As a photographer with a sensibility for style, finding a dapper camera bag can prove a challenge. The market is full of highly functional products that promise to withstand the toughest abuse in the field, yet most sport the same boring black canvas appearance that leaves bag lovers unsatisfied.
Spring 2014 deliveries will be in stores before you know it (seriously, they’ll be starting by the end of the holidays, which means we have only weeks to wait), and that means it’s time to start planning how our seasonal purchases are going to go once the sale-season craziness ends.
Kate Spade has been absolutely killing it with deals, sales and coupon codes recently, and today, we’ve got another one for you.

I hate traveling. More accurately, I hate getting to places; once I’m there, I love it. I was not alive for the days when air travel was a glamorous and refined experience, but based on the vaguely bus station-like feel it has now, I have a hard time believing that those days ever even existed.
Today’s an exciting day! Not only is it Friday, but it’s also the start of the Bloomingdale’s Big Brown Bag Sale. Not only will you find markdowns up to 50% on thousands of great, in-season picks ranging from handbags to outwear and beyond, but Bloomingdale’s is also giving you an online-only deal of an extra $25 off almost every $200 you spend. The sale is on sale, folks, but hurry – both of these great sales will be gone after December 1.
Bag deals are so much fun this time of year. While we all anticipate the arrival of Black Friday and its attendant shopping bonanza, department stores and brands alike have started quietly putting things on sale in anticipation of the festivities, so there are great deals to be had but with far less competition than you’ll get with post-Thanksgiving markdowns.
Finding a new designer is always exciting, especially when you consider the tight hold some big brands have on the handbag market. Earlier this month, I was introduced to Dillon Des Pres. When I saw his line, I felt a freshness that I always yearn for; the designs are simple and natural, with a beautifully finished aesthetic.
