Longtime PurseBlog readers know that we recapped episodes of all the Real Housewives franchises for years, and this season, we’re taking everyone’s favorite reality TV franchise out for a spin again. It’s only fitting that we should pick back up with the OG Housewives of the OC, right?
While we’ve all been occupied with sale season (and for good reason), the new arrivals sections at our favorite retailers have been quietly filling up with brand new bags to peruse and contemplate. Many of these bags are new colors and embellishments of old favorites, but some of them are even more interesting: new structures of existing bags or brand new designs unto themselves.
Thom Browne is a small American brand that’s highly influential in the worlds of menswear and suiting, which means Browne’s is probably not the first name anyone thinks of when it comes to handbags. The brand has made a small selection of totally gorgeous, impeccably made doctor bags for years, though, and they were a largely under-the-radar pick of people in the know.
As you might have noticed, it’s a Friday afternoon in June and those of you who haven’t yet managed to sneak out of work undetected probably don’t feel like doing much of anything. If that’s the case, then you’ve come to the right spot: we want to know what bag you’re currently carrying and what you think of it.
People think a lot about protecting and nurturing their skin during the summer, but your hair is just as needy when it comes to care and protection from the elements. Not only that, but summer brings along with it a whole set of styling hurdles for hair that is at all prone to frizz (and if yours is not, consider yourself extremely lucky).
It may not be the holidays, but it’s arguably still the most wonderful time of the year right now. Sale season is going strong, with additional discounts being taken left and right and bags from the biggest brands still readily available, if you’re willing to dig for the best picks.
It’s only right that a matriarch of a family would have the best collection of Birkins, and Kris Jenner is definitely ahead of her daughters in the Hermès-acquisition column. You might expect Kim to be the heir to that particular handbag throne (and, to her credit, she has some beautiful rarities), but when it comes to Birkins, Khloé Kardashian might really be the sister next in line.
The Givenchy Horizon Bag is the biggest addition to Givenchy’s Fall 2016 (or, in this case, Pre-Fall; the brand uses a Fall and Fall-Winter system to differentiate the collections instead of the standard industry jargon) lineup, but for some reason, it’s conspicuously absent from the brand’s seasonal lookbook, which just arrived on the Givenchy website.
So, you’ve got yourself some Chanel handbags, and you’ve also got some Chanel jewelry. Maybe now you’re thinking, “How can I combine those two things, and also get some home decor into the mix?” Don’t worry, Karl Lagerfeld has you covered in ways you didn’t even realize you needed until this exact moment in time.
The Céline Luggage Tote might not quite inspire the six-month waiting lists it did circa 2011, but the bag still appeals to a ton of women and sells briskly. Since its debut, Céline has always played the details of the bag’s available sizes and pricing close to the vest, and although we’ve been able to create and update a guide to getting the Luggage Tote you want, official word from Céline has remained very scant.
