One of the breakout bags of 2013 is the Fendi 2Jours Tote, a style that is simply stunning and classic in every way. While Fendi offers a wide range of a sizes, colors and materials for the 2Jours, you can’t underestimate the allure of perfect black bag, and the Fendi 2Jours in black comes close to perfection.

Because we are in the midst of winter, pair your classic bag bag with a creamy winter coat, like this one from J.Crew.

Let’s be honest: whether you get along with your in-laws or not, shopping for them is hard. Do you pick something that just makes sense for the woman of the house, since women are usually in charge of the gift-buying and exchanging, or do you try to find something to make the man of the house happy as well? It’s tricky, and even tricker if you’re looking to impress people who you don’t know well or haven’t known that long.

The Holidays have truly snuck up on us, and just in time for Christmas, Bottega Veneta has released a collection of essentials varying from its coveted Knot Clutch to a simple keychain in a brand new color for the brand called New Red. The hue of crimson is beautiful and as close to a true red as you can get.

[Editor's Note: We have a lot of silly conversations about bags in the PurseBlog offices, both out loud and via GChat. Starting today, we'll be giving you an occasional glimpse of what it's like to work inside PurseBlog and have your water cooler chit-chat overtaken by handbags.]

Megs: i feel like you’d like the purple one!

Amanda: haha, it’s a liiiiiiittle Hot Topic

but i do need some purple plaid

hahahaha

if it didn’t have the silver studs it would be perfect

yeah the studs are a problem

i feel like we could pull them out

but then there would maybe be holes

yes

we could weave twizzlers in there

for a snack later

that would be a delicious solution

i feel like we should post this on PB

You can never have too much Chanel in your life, and while we gave you our own look at some of the Chanel Cruise Bags, we now have a preview of the colorful Chanel Spring 2014 collection.

When the collection hit the runway in September, the art theme was evident everywhere from the show’s gallery-inspired show set to the collection on the runway.

Fendi hit big with its 2Jours totes, and the brand has put a playful spin on the seriously popular design with a line of monster-inspired bags and accessories. By now you’ve seen the bag monsters floating around the Internet (and maybe even on the bags of your friends), but Fendi has released an entire line of monstrous items. Some are more wearable, like chic blue pumps and a grey 2Jours, and some are more playful, like a bag embellished to look like an owl or a furry monster charm.

Finding a new designer is always exciting, especially when you consider the tight hold some big brands have on the handbag market. Earlier this month, I was introduced to Dillon Des Pres. When I saw his line, I felt a freshness that I always yearn for; the designs are simple and natural, with a beautifully finished aesthetic. It looks like Dillon Des Pres has an exciting career ahead of him – shortly after his launch, Moda Operandi commissioned this exclusive iPad case/clutch from him.
