Every big fashion brand has an idealized woman you can probably conjure up in your mind, but of all of them, being a Chloé Girl seems the most appealing to me. The brand makes clothes that look both comfortable and romantic, and effortlessness is an underappreciated aesthetic quality.
Normally on this time every Friday, we show up with a general survey of the best and brightest in the internet’s discount designer bags. Today is a very special Friday, though, so we’re gonna go about this a little differently.
If you wanted to call in to work today, we wouldn’t blame you. Not only is it a summer Friday, but the hotly anticipated and much beloved Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to everyone!
Unlike most stores, which wait until the end of the season to put things on sale, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale takes a huge selection of brand new clothes, shoes, accessories and (of course) handbags and discounts them temporarily, which makes it an excellent opportunity to get some key pieces of your fall wardrobe at a great price.
There is no designer handbag in the world as elusive as the Hermès Birkin. The legendary French leather goods house keeps a tight lid on everything about the bag, from the best way to get one to which colors and leathers might be available in a particular size or hardware type at any given time.
It’s exceedingly rare that I peruse a fashion retailer’s new arrivals and think to myself, “Whoa, that’s a good deal.” Even when it comes to contemporary designs, bags usually look more or less as expensive as they are, and when they don’t, we try to document the fashion world’s rare good values in as much detail as possible.
It should shock no one who knows the history of Louis Vuitton that the brand’s luggage is still an enduring, functional favorite of luxury travelers (and plenty of globetrotting celebrities) the world over–after all, the company got its start by building custom travel solutions for European royals and nobility.
I love to make fun of the oft-used Real Housewives trope of structuring episodes around some sort of party that unifies the group and allows the plot to advance, but episodes that don’t lead up to that sort of conclusion do tend to feel a little bit more scattered and less dramatic.
First and foremost, let me say that I have come here this morning without any malice for the beloved Chloé Marcie Bag. Its existence has made innumerable bag shoppers happy for years (it’s been around since 2009 at least, based on our own posts about it), and although I’ve never felt personally attracted to it, the Marcie is a workhorse design with a lot going for it.
It may be blindingly hot and humid in New York City today, but in just a couple weeks, that will invariably yield to slightly cooler weather and fall wardrobes. Because of the various and sundry wonders of the Internet, you can get a head start on yours via pre-order, and tons of Fall 2016 bags just hit our favorite retailers on Friday.
The biggest sale news of the week is early access to the hotly anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but if you’re not a Nordstrom cardholder, there are still some ways you can distract yourself until the sale opens to the general public on July 22.
