It’s hard to believe that September is starting tomorrow and that fall has already come knocking, but according to my calendar, that’s the reality of the situation. To get you ready for the new month (and the impending long weekend), we took a look back at what your fellow PurseBlog readers liked best this month.
Amanda's been handling editorial duties at PurseBlog since 2009, but that's not where her skills end. Au contraire! Amanda is also highly proficient in buying black clothing, Instagramming pictures of cocktails she's about to drink and wearing jewelry that men find off-putting.
She's an Atlanta native and University of Georgia graduate (go Dawgs) who now resides in New York City. The most important thing to know about Amanda is that she started putting purple streaks in her hair long before it was trendy, thank you very much.
Usually when we say a celebrity “just can’t get enough,” we’re talking about someone who really, really loves a particular bag in her collection. When I saw down to go through some photos of Reese Witherspoon, though, I noticed a different pattern–she has a particular affection for a certain shade of pink.
Bag: M2Malletier Fabricca Metallic Calf Hair Clutch
Price: $1,295 via Net-a-Porter
Why It’s the Bag of the Week: The textures and finishes on this little clutch make it feel unique; calf hair is hardly ever done in a metallic, and the dark leather strap and gleaming metal top handle finish the look perfectly.
[Editor’s Note: We’ve reached the last day of PurseBlog Summer Break, in which our editors take some time to recharge before fall (and fashion week) begins. To sign off, let’s take a look at the bags celebrities carry to the beach, now updated with a dozen knew seaside designer bags over which to gawk.
[Editor’s Note: This week, our staff is on PurseBlog Summer Break, so we’re posting a reduced schedule of new features and updated favorites. Below, check out one of our favorite posts from 2014, updated with a bunch of new exotic bags.]
Friday is National Handbag Day (did we already mention that?), and that means that our week is even more dedicated to handbags than it usually is.
[Editor’s Note: It’s PurseBlog Summer Break, and our writers and editors are taking a few days off before we gear up for fall. This week, we’ll be running both new posts to get you ready for the new season and a selection of old favorites.]
Some people dream for years of owning a Chanel Classic Flap Bag or Chanel Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag (and now, a Chanel Boy Bag), some already own multiples of each, and still others think that they're too traditional and played-out.
Today marks the beginning of what we call PurseBlog Summer Break, in which the team takes a few days to relax before fall kicks into high gear and we all run around like crazy people at New York Fashion Week. That means you won’t see quite as many new posts per day as you normally do, but we’ve got some fun stuff in store for you nonetheless.
It should be obvious to all comers that we think designer bags are great in almost any situation, but they’re not always the thing you want to have on your arm. If you’ve got a surfeit of cash and want to send yourself or your teenager to school with her bags in an Hermès Birkin, far be it from me to tell you not to.
