Valentines Day Gift Guide 2015

The much-loved, much-anticipated, and much-hated Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. The transformation of Saint Valentine’s Day over many years has turned this holiday into a massive marketing monster–just pop into any store and you will be pummeled with Valentine’s Day food, drinks, gifts and date ideas.

Chanel Bag Textures-1

We spend a lot of time looking at bags and sharing beautiful photos of bags around here. We review bags, we swoon over bags, we buy bags. One of the best parts of some of my favorite bags are in the details; a close look at the leather or the stitching gives you an insight into the bag you may not have seen before.

Coach Mens Fall 2015

With Stuart Vevers at the helm, Coach is taking great strides in a new direction. A couple weeks ago, Coach hosted its Fall 2015 menswear presentation in London, and Vevers showcased a relaxed, effortless collection.

While Coach under Vevers offers a different direction than many have grown to expect from the brand, his collections so far have featured remixes of American originals with a personal spin.

Moschino t-shirt bag

I try not to be overly negative about any fashion piece; I know that my taste is not for everyone, and the same can be said for anyone else’s. I appreciate the chances that designers take, and when I’m being more critical, it’s typically over the price and quality.

Saks Shopping

I can’t tell you how much I’ve loved getting to share my love of handbags with you for almost ten years now. It’s pretty crazy to think that PurseBlog will turn ten this year, and it’s thanks to you that we’ve made it this far.

short handbag shoulder strap

Shoulder straps, whether they’re one option or the only option, are one of the most important details I look for in a bag. Years ago, when I began buying more and more handbags, I tended to buy bags purely based on how they looked, instead of their functional details.

Stella McCartney Superhero

I’m not a huge Stella McCartney handbag fan. I’ve always loved different aspects of her accessories line, but I tend to find her clothing much more appealing than her bags. Much of that’s because I carry leather bags, and when I look at Stella’s line of vegan bags, there has never been an item that really stands out to me.

Barneys Sale

Barneys New York’s seasonal sales are notorious for their wide selections and deep discounts, and right now Barneys has items marked down up to 75%. I know sale season is intense and there are so many options, but it’s hard to beat Barneys for its combination of beautiful selection and good prices.

Proenza Schouler Crocodile PS1

We’re two weeks into the new year, and although I feel like I’m surrounded by resolutions, I haven’t made any of my own. I have never been a resolution-ist, and while in some previous years I would say I’d eat better, workout more, travel more or learn a new language, I never followed through.
