My love for the feminine and classic Salvatore Ferragamo Vara and Varina shoes has been a long time in the making, so what better way to showcase my love than playing with the items themselves?

We teamed up with Rachel, a good friend and beautiful model (isn’t she stunning? We need to feature her more!), to showcase some of our favorite Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and bags.

There is so much that goes into getting ready for a night out, and each part of planning is as important as the next. When it comes to the finishing touch, I always opt for finding the perfect bag, but I also never leave home without a spritz of my favorite scent.

Viva la Juicy scent is an incredibly popular daytime option, and now there is the ideal evening counterpart, the sensual and bold Viva la Juicy Noir.

We’re so happy the weekend is finally here! That means long brunches and laying in the park celebrating long summer days. If you love Instagram as much as we do, don’t miss out at a look inside our world – make sure to follow PurseBlog and TalkShoes on Instagram to get a look at the bags and shoes we love along with everything else.

I specifically remember spending summers in Ohio riding bikes around the neighborhood and going to the local market to buy candy. Every favorite candy of my childhood was there, and one that most of us remember is Candy Buttons. You might not remember the name, but you remember the hard candy that you chewed off a long piece of wax paper.

I forgot to give the June birthdays some loving, but I’m hoping these beautiful ruby red bags will make everyone happy, especially our July birthday babies! A red bag is an instant statement piece and we’ve found some of the best bags that work both for our July birthday gift guide and anyone looking to add a red bag to their collection.

This is a topic that will easily elicit strong feelings on both sides, but it is a conversation worth having. I got my first designer handbag in 7th grade. I was 13. I had been begging my mom for a Coach bag, and after what felt like years of annoyance, my mom got both me and my sister the purses we desired.

Since I first laid eyes on the Fendi 2Jours Bag, it was love at first sight. This is a bag that stands out when you see it online, but in person it’s even more stunning. Every bit of the bag is refined and elegant, without appearing old or stuffy. In fact, if you’re looking for a bag to splurge on and you want something classic and on-trend, this is the bag for you.

Gucci Bright Bit Leather Shoulder Bag, was $1,050 now $703 via Neiman Marcus.

For those that love the Proenza Schouler handbag aesthetic, it seems the brand can do no wrong. The PS13 wasn’t as big of a hit as the coveted PS1 and PS11, yet the brand just released the Courier, and I’m sure it hopes the design will cause a buying frenzy like it’s predecessors.

But the question is, will you buy it?

We hope you have a happy, safe, and fun 4th of July! We will be taking off today and tomorrow to enjoy the day with friends and family, and of course to celebrate our nation’s independence. So pick out your best red, white and blue accessories and eat all your favorite summer foods – we will see you back on Monday.
