There are a lot of beautiful things about the Internet. Cat pictures, celebrity Twitter feuds, the Gangnam Style video. Perhaps the most beautiful, though, is the expansion of the holiday sales season. Not into waiting until Black Friday to compete with everyone else for the bags on your wishlist? Now you don’t have to, because as of this morning, Bloomingdale’s has taken 30% off an awesome selection of full-priced handbags, including brands like Rebecca Minkoff, Kate Spade and Furla.

I’m not normally someone who enjoys surprises (I am a planner), but this news just made my whole day. Kate Spade just dropped a pre-holiday sale on us, and you can save 20% sitewide.
I’m SO buying the recently featured Kate Spade Tequila tote. Get started on holiday shopping for all the people on your list….or just think about yourself.
Black Friday is coming. Can you smell it? Can you hear it? Can you feel the leaves start to rustle as a hoard marauding shoppers makes its way toward the nation’s big box retailers for a deal on god knows what, whipping up fallen leaves and discarded sale circulars in its path? I worked at Best Buy in college, so the thought of after-Thanksgiving sales still makes me gird my loins in a way that is probably more negative than most of you.
We love Rue La La, but you know what we love even more? Designer handbags! Duh. And when our friends at Rue La La have one of their From the Reserve sales, we find ourselves getting a little crazy wanting to buy every single bag available. This sale includes Chanel, Celine, Hermes, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, and many more. I need not say more; the sale and the bags speak for themselves.
Now that both crazy storms have passed through the Northeast (and I have come back from the vacation that allowed me to miss the first one), the PurseBlog team is back at full steam, which means we’re back to spending a ridiculous amount of time poking around online, looking for good ways to empty our wallets. It’s Friday, though, which means we’re looking for ways to keep some of our cash for ourselves; there are cocktails that need to be bought and consumed this weekend, after all.
I like a deal, but a good deal is both hard to find and better once you find it. THE OUTNET always rounds up amazing items at great prices, and its Clearance Sale is a force to be reckoned with. The fact is, a wide array of products make it to THE OUTNET Clearance Sale and each one is between 80-85% off.
When you look at and write about designer handbags every day, your concept of what’s expensive becomes distorted. So, when I find a great bag from a premier designer for around $1,000, my brain will immediately think of that as a great deal. But clearly, I work in a different realm and the fact is, spending thousands of dollars on bags is not an everyday occurrence for me or the majority of every else.
The end of October is such a weird time of year when you’re looking for good deals, especially on the Internet. Most retailers have ended their Friends & Family deals for the season, and now we’re all in a bit of a holding pattern until the holiday sales begin (and it seems like every year, they begin earlier). That doesn’t mean you should give up your quest for a good buy, though.
The PS1 is at the top of my bag wish list. I lovvveee this bag. It’s functional. It’s pretty. It feels luxurious. It has been on my list for a while, yet I can never quite bring myself to pull the trigger. (Sticker shock is a killjoy). However, today is my lucky day, because flash sale site Belle & Clive is bringing us all some seriously sweet PS product at discount pricing.
Online, deals come in many forms. End-of-season sales, temporary sales, friends-and-family sales, coupon codes, the list goes on. For this week’s bag deal rundown, we’re celebrating the Spends Some, Get Some format with the Barneys Purple Card Event. How Spend Some, Get Some sales work is simple: the pieces are full price, but depending on how much you spend, you get a certain amount back via gift card.
