After a week visiting my parents, I’m back in the office today and back to my weekly look at the internet’s best in bag deals. We’re inching closer toward sale season, and with that, sites’ discount pages are starting to get ever so slightly more interesting.

You don’t have to watch many episodes of Top Chef to notice that Padma Lakshmi is extremely polished. That might be an understatement: she’s almost imposingly polished. When you stack that on top of being beautiful and very smart, it’s not surprising that even the paparazzi rarely catch her looking at all ruffled.

When I first became interested in handbags, hobos were huge. I mean that both literally and figuratively; not only was the style super popular, but the most popular versions were enormous. A recent wave of hobos from The Row harkens back to those days (The Olsen twins were, of course, infamous for carrying bags big enough to live in during those years), and it has me feeling pleasantly nostalgic for the mid-2000s.

On the first slightly warm day of spring, you always see a woman in a white linen dress or a guy in shorts and flip-flops who clearly had been dreaming about wearing those things since December.

There are plenty of legitimate ways to celebrate a new season, but over the past couple years, it seems like handbag brands have come to a tentative agreement that their favorite way to do it is with a new print.

When Reed Krakoff suspended operations in March 2015, the brand’s namesake designer promised that wouldn’t be the last we heard from his company. A little over a year later, he’s back, but at an entirely different price level.

I think of my handbags as the accessory that I use the most, but in reality, that’s not even close to true: I interact with my bag several times a day, but I interact with my phone case almost constantly.

It was just last June that we reported to you about a new high in handbag resale prices: Christie’s Hong Kong had just sold a pink crocodile Hermès Birkin for a record high of $221,000. That record didn’t even make its first anniversary; earlier this week, Privé Porter announced it had broken that record with a $298,000 Birkin of its own, and it’s one that will look familiar to PurseBlog readers.
