For today’s edition of our weekly Bag Deals roundup, we ventured into a couple of sale section in which we hadn’t checked recently to see if they had anything interesting to offer. Our extra efforts were met with bags from Fendi, Gucci, Givenchy, Valentino and more, and we think you’re going to want to check out the full spectrum of sale bags below.


Getting dressed for work is something that women’s fashion magazines and websites tackle regularly, and with varying results. (Who thinks that putting a blazer over a crop top is going to fly as a good day-to-night option in most workplaces?) Because we spend most of our time thinking about a particular part of the fashion industry, though, we’d like to think that we can scope out good workwear with slightly more accurate results.


If you thought that perhaps Jeremy Scott and Moschino had found some chill in the time since we last checked in, I have some bad news for you. Moschino recently released its Pre-Fall 2015 lookbook, and the bags (and clothes) are as fiercely literal as ever.


Last Friday, we asked you to submit your burning questions about handbags, accessories and personal style, and you responded with lots of interesting queries and conundrums. We’ve picked one of our favorites of the bunch to kick off our new advice column, and it hits on a nagging insecurity that a lot of fashion lovers have–what happens when your wardrobe feels a little bit fancier than you are?


Bag: VBH Trevi Demi Python Bag

Price: $4,200 via Neiman Marcus

Why It’s the Bag of the Week:Winter is a great time of year for rich textures and colors, and rarely gets richer than deep burgundy snakeskin. The Trevi is a great bag if you want to carry something elegant but not immediately recognizable.

ShopBop-25-Percent-Off-Designer-Sale-January-2015This is not-so-secretly my favorite part of sale season; the selection isn’t as huge as the very beginning, of course, but the discounts are enormous, and there are still plenty of awesome things to choose from. Today, the best deals are at ShopBop; the site is offering an extra 25% off its designer sale with code DESIGNER25, and that leaves many of the pieces with final prices well over 70% off.


On the strength of its Rockstud bags, Valentino has become a major player in the accessories industry in a relatively short amount of time. Now that the Rockstud has transitioned from trend darling to a potential classic, though, the brand has taken on the task of slowly moving customers on to the next things.


Heritage-Auctions-Chanel-Handbag-GiveawayWe’ve got some exciting news to share with you that will surely get your weekend off to the right start. Our friends at Heritage Auctions are giving away a Chanel bag in advance of their upcoming Chanel Online Auction, and you could be the lucky winner.


Megs and I love chatting with you guys in the comments of our posts, so we’ve discussed things and would like to take our relationship with you to the next level. Often, you guys ask us questions that require lengthier answers than we’re able to give in a spur-of-the-moment comment, and those questions seem like the kind that other readers might be wondering about, too.
