We’re heading into the long Labor Day weekend, when sales are blessedly abundant, and that means we’ve got some great finds for our weekly roundup of online bag deals. Neiman Marcus in particular has a lot of great bags, but most of them are marked with a sell-out warning; if you’re hoping to score big, you’re going to have to act quickly.


Since arriving at Louis Vuitton for the Fall 2014 collection, creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere has overseen the creation of a handful of new handbag designs the company hopes will attract luxury shoppers who feel ambivalent about the company’s traditional monogram offerings.


I’m currently sitting in the PurseBlog office in a backless tank top and a pair of Nikes, but I haven’t always worked in fashion, so I’m well aware that most women don’t get the same latitude when it comes to what they wear (and carry) to work.


Christian Louboutin’s first foray into beauty was nail polish, which made total sense–his famous shoes adorn and accent a woman’s feet, just as nail color so often does. Louboutin’s next beauty venture, lipstick, also makes a certain amount of sense–his signature color is a vibrant red, after all, and no place in beauty is the color more beloved than on the lips.


If you think of Tory Burch bags and can only call to mind logo totes, you’ve been wrong for a while now. The brand’s runway bags, in particular, have been interesting and highly detailed for years now, and doing that at a relatively accessible price point is always worthy of note.


Of all the major European luxury houses, Christian Dior‘s status in the handbag world has arguably risen the most over the past few seasons, and that means we (and many of you) look forward to a new line from the brand more than we ever have before.


For most brands, a distinctive, successful line of shoes or bags can be expected to remain popular for only a couple of years before it needs to be moved to the back burner in favor of what the brand hopes will be its Next Big Thing.


Every season, we dig around for the best values available to designer bag shoppers looking to keep their expenditures solidly in the three-figure range, and every season, it gets a little tricker. Prices are forever heading northward, and even when a brand decides to resist those market forces, it can risk compromising the quality of the materials it’s able to use.


Even if you live in a place where it’ll be hot and sticky outside for another month, there’s no denying that fall is on its way, at least in stores. Coach is the latest brand to get its autumn assortment in stock, and that means a whole bunch of new Swagger bags, plus some debut styles we think are well worth a look.
