It’s safe to say all of us here at PurseBlog are big fans of Gucci. Amanda and Megs frequently mention their favorites from the brand, and one of my favorite bags in my own collection is my Gucci Soho Shoulder Bag.

Anyone who says suede shoes are solely a fall and winter staple shouldn’t be trusted, at least when it comes to wardrobe advice. Summer suede is in full force this season, at least when it comes to accessories, and we’re here to tell you not to be afraid.

You can probably imagine what our Instagram feed looks like at any given moment, and if you guessed an endless amount of covetable handbags, you’re right on the money. Scrolling through our feed, there are a few handbag culprits that reign supreme among our followers, including Hermès and Chanel.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator

If you’ve seen women looking impossibly dewy and perfect this summer, it’s not just because they happen to sweat in a more attractive way than the rest of us. The good highlighter and the right technique can help fool anybody into thinking you’re perspiring for fashion, and once things cool down for fall, it can help you retain your summer glow long after the beach is no longer an option.


Bags and shoes go together like peanut butter and jelly. Recently we shed some light on the most notable bags and shoes of Pre-Fall 2016, and it was easy to see how many of these new pieces could potentially pair up for maximum effect.

Balenciaga bags have an intresting spot in the world of handbags. After the debut of the brand’s signature Motorcyle Bag design well over a decade ago, it instantly became a cult favorite because of its edgy, lightweight design and popularity with stylish celebs like Kate Moss.

Gucci Kendell Pearly Metallic Block-Heel Sandal

Before the big rollout of fall product, retailers are stocking their New Arrivals pages with Pre-Fall 2016 ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories. It seems like designers are churning out more product for this in-between period than we’ve ever seen before, and that’s good news for us.

We’ve been venturing our way around the PurseForum for a couple weeks now, and if you can believe it, we’ve only just scratched the surface of what our members have to offer. We already checked out the most popular brands on the Forum, including Chanel, Céline, Hermès and Louis Vuitton, and this week we’re continuing with Valentino.

Joie Avery Crisscross Nubuck City Sandal

Sale season is a glorious time of year, there’s no doubt about that. Great prices on some of the industry’s most covetable brands–what’s not to love, right? Well, we’re currently in the second stage of markdowns, and while the prices are fantastic, size and color selections can be a bit precarious.

Something was definitely in the air this week, because we found an abundance of Louis Vuitton bags on our Instagram feed; we’re certainly not complaining! You know what they say: the heart wants what the heart wants, and it’s clear that our Instagram followers’ hearts are smitten over LV.
