Most Popular PurseBlog Posts August 2015

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.

Reese-Witherspoon-Pink-Bags

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.

M2Malletier-Fabricca-Metallic-Calf-Hair-Clutch

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.

Celebrity Beach Bags

[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.

Celebrities and Chanel Bags

[Editor’s Note: We’re smack dab in the middle of PurseBlog Summer Break, in which our team takes a week off to recharge for fall. We’re running fewer posts this week, but we’ll still have new features every day, plus refreshed versions of some of our old favorites.

Fall-2015-Best-Beauty-Products

We may be on summer break this week, but that means, at least in part, that we’re thinking forward to fall, and not just when it comes to handbags. Below, check out a selection of the beauty, skincare and haircare products we’ll be loading up on for the coming chill in the air.

Celebrities Exotic Handbags

[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.

Chanel Flap Bag Up Close

[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.

Givenchy-Nightingale-Bag

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.

Best-Fashionable-Back-to-School-Backpacks

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.
