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.

Fringe Bags Spring 2015

I’m constantly checking new arrivals on my favorite shopping sites and recently noticed a big influx of fringe fashion pieces, handbags and beyond. Fringe is making a big statement for Spring 2015, but something about it feels so familiar. After a bit of checking, I figured out why: almost exactly a year ago, I wrote a very similar piece on the best fringe bags for Spring 2014, and now, here we are, in a sort of handbag déjà vu.

J Mendel Handbag Giveaway

While this isn’t our giveaway, it is a giveaway I want you all to be able to be a part of. J. Mendel may be known for its fur and evening gowns, but the addition of handbags to this line has been really lovely.

We’ve previously discussed my love for the teeny tiny Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag, and I’m not the only one experiencing micro bag obsession. Vogue.com named the micro bag the It Bag of 2015, and countless stars have been spotted carrying these tiny bags by themselves or as bag charms.

Anya Hindmarch Crisp Packet Clutch Gold

Years ago when “it bags” were in their prime, Anya Hindmarch made waves with her cotton “I’m Not a Plastic Bag” tote. In the years since, Hindmarch continued to turn out solid bags, but it was recently that she began to make waves again with quirky bags and leather stickers.

Chanel Haute Couture Textures (1)

I’m totally obsessed with our new series of texture studies, in which we give you a detailed look at the characteristics and components that make up some of our favorite brands and pieces. We first looked at Chanel Spring 2015 bags, and now we have exclusive photos Vlad shot of the Chanel Haute Couture Collection for Spring-Summer 2015.

Tiffany & Co Spring Bags

Last fall, we gave you an intimate look at some of the bags from the Tiffany & Co. Fall 2014 collection, and though it still feels and looks like winter outside, I want to brighten your day and your accessories collection with the Tiffany & Co.

Sophie Hulme Holmes Cutout Leather Bag

Last week, we had quite a discussion over the lack of great American luxury handbag designers right now. I’ve heard many of you say you want to see more diversity in the brands we feature, so I’ve been spending time looking for bags and brands that I love that are a bit different from our usual suspects.
