When I first started PurseBlog, I was super into Louis Vuitton. I remember getting my name on the list and securing a few sought after bags, including the Watercolor Speedy (which was only $1,270 when I bought it in 2008!).
We’ve spent a lot of time in the PurseBlog offices talking about adding videos to the site. I’m not one that really likes to be in front of the camera, it’s just not my personality (hence why I don’t use Snapchat much–sorry), but the time seemed right to give it a shot, so we decided to kick it off with a shopping favorite: an unboxing video.
Our What Fits category is a reader favorite, and I promise we’ll be sharing more bags and what you can expect to fit inside them in the near future. (If you have requests on bags you want to see included, let me know in the comments below.) Knowing the interior capacity of a bag is especially important for smaller styles; what looks like it can fit a continental wallet in a stock image may only be able to handle a card case in real life.
I’m not really haunted by much (maybe just the idea of a super large spider or taking a really bad fall), but I do find myself constantly thinking about certain bags that got away. This clearly is a topic that comes up a bit here at PurseBlog; we have covered it twice (here and here) in the past, and before I wrote this post today, I asked members of the PurseForum this very question.
I was planning on sharing my must-have spring pieces with you today, but I got behind on work, so instead, I’m sharing two items I want in my closet right now. My love affair with Gucci shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of you; I was already a fan before Alessandro Michele took over, and with his reinvigoration of the brand, I fell even further down the rabbit hole.
One of the greatest bag feats Balenciaga ever accomplished was whipping shoppers into a frenzy over the Motorcycle Bags’ seasonal colors in the design’s early days. (We have have some gorgeous photos of some of the design’s rarest colors.) Since then, the clamor has died down a bit, and shoppers have gone back to normal levels of bag obsession, which isn’t exactly a problem.
The classically modern Tory Burch aesthetic stood out from the minute Tory entered the scene, and her playful-yet-wearable clothing and bags are integral parts of many women’s day-to-day wardrobes. Named for Tory’s parents, Buddy and Reva Robinson, the Robinson bag collection is a pillar of the brand; it’s one of Burch’s most recognizable and sought-after designs.
