Which Fendi Bag Should I Get

I have been covering a lot of Fendi bags recently, and that’s because I’m crushing on Fendi majorly. The brand continues to release beautiful designs, and so many of them are fast becoming favorites of handbag lovers, including me. There’s the 2Jours, which I now consider a staple, the 3Jours, which is a great update to the 2Jours, and the By The Way, which is the newest of the bunch that I love.

PurseBlog Picks April 6 We’ve been busy picking out the best items of spring and summer 2015 over on PurseBlog Picks, and you don’t want to miss out! From our favorite handbags to perfectly chic designer shoes to the best of beauty, we have something picked out for everyone.

Carlos Falchi

On March 27, Carlos Falchi passed away at the age of 70. Carlos was a staple in the fashion industry and a designer I was lucky to have met on multiple occasions. His joy for life, love, family and his craft showed immediately upon meeting him.

Coach Swagger

Over the past several seasons, Coach has undergone a transformation with Stuart Vevers at the helm while still keeping true to the core elements of the brand, and if you ask me, the brand has done a fabulous job. Coach’s latest new bag has everyone buzzing, and not just because it’s a good bag–there’s also brilliant campaign behind it.

The Many Bags of Shopbop

There’s nothing better than meeting the team behind one of our favorite e-tailers, and Shopbop fits that description easily. What’s even better is getting to see the bags the team members carry to work, along with their unique personal styles. There’s no denying the Shopbop ladies are a fabulous bunch, carrying and wearing enviable outfits to their NYC offices.

Spring 2015 Bags under $1000

There’s been a lot of talk about designers raising the prices of their handbags, from Chanel to Louis Vuitton to Hermès. It’s become the norm for me to tell people looking for a premier designer bag that the price averages around the $2,000 mark.

Louis Vuitton Brand for Secretaries

A couple weeks ago, Vlad and I were in Texas for SXSW and attended the conference’s panel on Global Digital Trends for the Luxury Consumer. It wasn’t a fashion-specific panel, but during the talk, one of the presenters mentioned a recent Business Insider article about consumer perceptions of Louis Vuitton in China.

PurseBlog Picks 3.30.15

I am constantly updating PurseBlog Picks with my favorite items and the latest submissions have been filled with pretty pastels for spring. From light pinks, yellows, blues and more, I’ve added the best items to the PB Picks page that I’m currently coveting and I’m sure you will be too once you see them!

PursesandPaws

Instagram is a major part of so many of our online lives. Almost everywhere I go, I see people scrolling through their Instagram feeds, and I must admit I’m slightly addicted as well. @PurseBlog has an Instagram account, of course, and we love sharing our love of handbags with you, but recently, I decided to add something that’s super fun to the PB family.

Gucci always hits it out of the park, and the brand’s latest line only proves what a tremendous run Gucci has been on with its handbags. I carry my Bamboo Shopper so often that it’s one of my most-used bags, and after the release of the Jackie Soft Bags, I was hooked as well.
