Want-It-Wednesday-Jewelry

Despite all the beautiful new spring stuff that’s flooding into stores right now, this time of year is kind of a bummer when it comes to shopping. The selection is the best that it will be all year round, but there’s limited joy in buying sundresses and sandals when I still have to climb a grimy snow mountain to hail a cab outside of my apartment.

Chanel Spring 2015 Bag Textures (13)

Ever since we heard rumors that the classic Chanel Grand Shopping Tote was being discontinued, we’ve been paying close attention to what members of our PurseForum have been hearing from their Chanel sales associates and friends at the brand. While we haven’t been able to confirm anything (brands of Chanel’s caliber tend not to dignify these things with a response until they’re good and ready), it seems like the whispered-about changes at Chanel go far beyond just the potential disappearance of a popular tote.

Christian-Louboutin-Sweet-Charity-Mini-Heart-Shoulder-Bag

A few weeks ago, I started to notice bags with hearts on them popping up here and there. At first, I assumed it was something of a timely gimmick; after all, Valentine’s Day is Saturday and some designers just can’t resist a theme, especially if it’s based on a holiday in which gifts are often given.

2015-Grammy-Awards-Celebrity-Handbags

There weren’t quite as many clutches to be seen on the 2015 Grammys red carpet as there usually are at major awards shows, but the ones that were there are definitely worth looking at. Grammys fashion is always so pleasantly bonkers, and almost all of the clutches we spotted were special in one way or another.

Best-Spring-Designer-Bags-2015

As you’ve likely noticed, spring bags have started to arrive at your favorite online retailers in full force. Between the bags that are newly in stock and the sea of pre-orders that will be delivering in the next few weeks, now’s the time to shop for a new spring bag if you want the best selection of colors and sizes to choose from.

Louis-Vuitton-Pre-Fall-2015-Handbags-2

It’s amazing how quickly Nicolas Ghesquiere has changed the aesthetic at Louis Vuitton. It’s one thing to come in to a globally recognized brand after the decade-and-a-half tenure of a legend like Marc Jacobs and put together your own collection with your own quirks; it’s quite another to do that in a way that the industry buys into whole-heartedly, as it seems to with Ghesquiere’s Vuitton.

Scandal Recap Fitz

Let me level with you: Writing Scandal recaps is hard, because how do you even describe what happens in an episode of Scandal in real English words? If we’re being honest, an accurate recap is mostly just grunting noises and lots of eyebrow movements, but that doesn’t make for much of a blog post.

Hermès bags are, without question, the hottest accessories on the re-sale market; they hold their value better than anything else (and usually even appreciate), and their highest-of-the-high price tags mean that they’re worth the time of enormous auction houses that have the resources to source them from collectors all over the world.
