We love all sales, of course, but we love it even more when one of our favorite stores lets us do the discounting. Now through November 11 at the Neiman Marcus Spend More, Save More Sale, you can get $100 of your purchase of $400 or $50 off your purchase of $250, applicable to tons of qualifying products and brands (and they’re all clearly marked on the site).


There are two categories of celebrities we cover here at PurseBlog: celebrities who occasionally carry nice bags by virtue of being rich and well-connected and celebrities who are just like us. They’re the ones who hoard Birkins like they may one day be banned from Hermès boutiques and who actually seem to buy bags instead of just carrying whatever brands sends to their publicists.


Bag: Alexander McQueen Box Shoulder Bag

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: This bag’s shape is deceptively simple, but its structure and closure are unique in the market right now, which makes it well worth a look.


By now, you’ve likely all heard that Raf Simons has chosen to step down from his creative director spot at Dior, and while LVMH will undoubtedly find a talented and worthy replacement, I’ve been thinking a lot over the past week about how much I’ll miss the brand of cutting-edge femininity he brought to Dior’s hallowed iconography, and to the bags in particular.


We’re never not looking forward to the weekend, and November makes it all the more fun–who can’t get on board with cozy sweaters, broken-in jeans and maybe, just maybe, a little bit of ridiculous faux fur?

If you’ve been eyeing some new purchases for fall, now’s the time to buy: at the Barneys Purple Card Event, running now through November 8, you’ll get a $25 gift card toward a future purchase for almost every $250 you spend!


We didn’t plan it this way, but sometimes when we’re shopping, trends emerge. If you love red, pink or burgundy (on top of your love of sales, duh), you’re going to love this morning’s round of bag deals.


Everyone on the PurseBlog sees a ton of bags every day, so when one sticks with you for a little while, that’s always something to pay attention to. I first spotted The Row Duplex Hobo when scouting out which Resort 2016 bags the Internet’s big retailers already have on offer, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.


Beauty changes with the weather just like clothes and bags do, and over the past couple months, I’ve done a lot of tinkering with my makeup and skincare routines in order to ready myself for the impending cold air and ward off last year’s dry skin, as try some new cosmetics I’ve been curious about.


We’ve known for several months that Chanel has plans to expand its retail presence on its official website, and yesterday, we got the first peek at what the brand has in store. Via Chanel.com, you can now browse and buy a large selection of sunglasses, which is one step closer to the online handbag sales we’re so desperately hoping will one day appear.
