At first, I had intended this recap to cover two episodes’ worth of ground because we missed last week’s episode due to vacation, but when I watched the episodes last night and this morning, I was struck by how little actually happened during them.
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting the one and only Bergdorf Goodman in New York City, you know how breathtaking the legendary store’s Main Floor is. The display area, in all of its regal, vintage charm, plays host to most of the store’s handbag inventory, as well as jewelry and other accessories, and now, after a remodel, it’s even more gorgeous.
I’ve always been extremely fond of the Louis Vuitton SC Bag. Designed by filmmaker Sofia Coppola in collaboration with Marc Jacobs during his tenure at Vuitton, the bag is rendered in soft calfskin, generally in a solid, neutral shade, and finished with little in the way of hardware, beyond a metal padlock.
Around the PurseBlog offices, we spend an inordinate amount of time poring over photos of celebs and their favorite handbags, and over time, one thing has become apparent: famous people really, really love Chanel bags. Non-famous people do too, of course, but those photos are harder to come by.
The Hermès Birkin is the most iconic and sought-after handbag in the world (even if you don’t like it, it’d be hard to argue otherwise), and that means most fashion lovers have already absorbed a lot of information about how it was conceived, how it’s made and how hard it is to get one.
It wasn’t so long ago that $1,500 was a sweet spot for designer bags. In the mid-2000s, sough-after bags like the Chloé Paddington retailed for prices near that magic number, and even as recently as 2010, the Céline Luggage Tote debuted at $1,750.
Recently, Megs responded to one of our readers who was looking to choose between three options to buy her first premier designer bag, and her question got me thinking about how the accessories landscape must look for someone just beginning in 2016.
Labor Day Weekend will be here far sooner than I’d prefer (only two weeks!), but with that summer-ending cloud, there’s at least one silver lining: the advent of fall dressing, which provides opportunities to both whip out some old favorites and pick up some new pieces to flesh out your wardrobe.
At the PurseBlog offices, we’re putting the finishing touches on some new stuff before our we all get a little bit of much-needed rest next week (don’t worry, there will still be plenty of things to ready every day!), but for now, we’re here to do a different thing of great importance: look at the best designer bag discounts on the Internet this week.
