TV Show Recaps

Real Housewives is, at its core, a show about small but abject suburban horrors. Although last night’s episode was the kind of quasi-filler that the series serves up every three or four weeks to fill out the season, it was subtly packed with the kind of stuff that would drive even the most stable McMansion dweller to guzzle some white wine and start a fight at an outdoor cocktail party.

As much as we love seasonal colors and prints, it’s hard to deny the everlasting allure of the black handbag. Unless you’re a lady of leisure (lucky!) or the kind of person who’s meticulous about changing her handbag to match her outfit every morning, you probably have a workhorse bag in your collection, and that bag is, in all likelihood, black.

Like every community, our PurseForum has developed its own language over the years. For instance, SA is universal code for “sales associate” when sharing shopping intel or swapping purchase stories. A RAOK is a random act of kindness, where members send each other little treats and gifts.

Last week was a busy one for Dior. Not only did the brand debut its Fall 2016 couture collection in Paris, but it named Maria Grazia Chiuri its seventh-ever (and first female!) creative director, poaching half of Valentino’s uber-successful design duo.

Perhaps the most important thing creative director Alessandro Michele has brought to Gucci during his short tenure at the brand’s helm is a feeling of abundance. His collections are enormous, his lookbooks are rich in set detail and styling and the clothes and accessories themselves are lavishly detailed, sometimes to the point of visual trickery and misdirection.

We’re nearing the end of sale season, which is a fact that brings with it both good and bad news. The bad news is obvious: sale season is always more fun than full-price season when you’re a shopper.

Couture Week runs on a different schedule than the regular fashion seasons. Because clients order directly from the brands and designers don’t need extra time to collect orders from and ship stock to retailers, you don’t get the six-month lead time between the show and the season in which the clothing is intended to be worn.

The Row may not be the largest or most powerful handbag brand in the world, but when the Olsen Twin-helmed company sets its sites on a particular type of bag, it’s worth taking notice, even if you don’t think it has any chance of becoming a full-blown trend.

Post-holiday doldrums are very real, and that’s doubly true when it’s a summer holiday weekend that encourages outdoor debauchery, sunshine and lots of cheap beer. The PurseBlog team is a tad sluggish this afternoon, and we’re betting many of you are, too.
