Canvas is a tricky textile. It’s perfect for summer because it’s lightweight and breathable, which can matter even in accessories when it’s so hot out that the idea of having anything heavy or warm touching your body is too much to bear.

Whether you’re spending a little time inside this weekend because of Hurricane Arthur or just because you prefer air conditioning at all times, you’re in luck – the July 4th Sales are pretty great, and online shopping is among our favorite indoor activities.

The US may have been eliminated from both our PurseBlog Handbag World Cup and the real one, but still we press on, undeterred. After all, a champion must be named. Today, you’ve shrunk our field to four remaining contestants, and now only you can choose which two will duke it out in the championship round.

It wasn’t that long ago that Givenchy was just another luxury brand in LVMH’s significant stable. A few years ago, though, a streetwear sensibility started to leak into Riccardo Tisci’s gothic leanings and couture mastery, and ever since then, the brand’s signature graphic T-shirts, luxe sneakers and, more than anything, iconic handbags have been on the backs, feet and arms of basically every famous person on the planet.

This weekend, the PurseBlog team will be scattered around the city (and the globe) to celebrate America’s Independence Day. Since we’re all heading to varied locales and activities, we’ve assembled the things we all want for each of our jaunts, which range from a relaxing weekend with friends in the city to a globetrotting trek to Nicaragua.

Welcome to July’s first eBay Roundup. The deals are great this week; we found some unusual pieces, including a beautiful Goyard Saigon, a perfectly simple Louis Vuitton and a sparkly embellished clutch from Alexander McQueen. We also have a lovely Fendi Baguette, and a scrumptious  Chanel jumbo flap and some other surprises.

Barneys Warehouse July 4 SaleIf you’d like to kick off this weekend’s patriotism with a little pre-Independence Day purchase, we’ve got a good way to start: Barneys Warehouse is taking up to an extra 50% off its already steeply discounted designer wares, including an extra 30% off select handbags and a whopping extra 50% off all shoes.

As an accessories brand, Tom Ford is still trying to get its sea legs. The line of bags and shoes is successful, but Ford has yet to have the kind of breakthrough, blockbuster hit that would send the business into the stratosphere.

We saw the Moschino Jacket Bags coming, and now they’ve arrived, either to delight or torment you, depending on your personal taste.

Not many handbags from world-famous fashion designers fly under the radar even a little bit. Because of the high margins and wide market for luxury accessories, brands push bags to the forefront of global marketing campaigns season after season; even if they fall short of creating an It Bag, those efforts still creative massive public awareness of their bags.
