This is one of those posts that’s hard to know where to begin. What I’m about to delve into is long and personal, with details that may make some of you wonder why I chose to share so much, but people close to me know how open I am.
One of the aspects I miss most about living in NYC full-time is the constant access to sample sales. I lived down the street from one of the main sample sale hubs, and sometimes walking home from work or a meeting meant popping into whatever sample sale was currently happening and snagging crazy deals.
When the Chanel Cruise 2017 Cuba collection debuted, I immediately started to hunt for images of the bags. The usual sites we check for photos didn’t have closeups of the accessories, and I wanted to see what Chanel did for this monumental show–the first of its kind for an international brand in Cuba.
One of my favorite posts we do on PurseBlog is our Many Bags Of series, especially when it pertains to real life people and not just our celeb roundups. Vlad and I met Jennifer Fisher, famed jewelry designer and all around cool girl, a few years ago and took a peek in her bag to share with you and recently decided to check back in and follow up with her and her team to see the bags they carry to work.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is probably my favorite sale of the year, aside from finding a random amazing bag deal at a sample sale or by chance. One of the biggest stressors for me, and I’m sure others, is sorting through the sale items and making sure I find not only great deals but also what I’m looking for.
Celebrities are lucky for a lot of reasons, not least of which because they often get their hands on a bag before we ever can. Personally, I’ve always liked that brands give bags out early to famous friends–it makes it easy for me to see a bag being worn and gage how it translates from stock image to real life.
The Louis Vuitton Neverfull remains one of the most beloved everyday bags in the luxury handbag world. With diverse offerings including classic Monogram, Damier and Epi leather, the bag comes in a variety of sizes and is among the bags I see most commonly carried and that people search for on our site.
Even though some people don’t love the idea of bag charms, I’ve always been drawn to them. To me, having a great accent for your most important accessory is a cool way to make it your own, and with all the options currently available, you don’t have to go over-the-top with an outlandishly large charm.
