On one hand, I can barely believe that we're down to the last days of 2013. On the other hand, the screwy fashion calendar means that I've been writing "2014" for nearly six months, and I'm really looking forward to that not being usually incorrect. To celebrate the year that's passed, we'd like to take a look back at the PurseBlog posts you liked the best in 2013. (You guys really love celebrities, Celine and Chanel.)
10. The Many Bags of Nicole Richie
With an expansive handbag collection that includes oodles of Balenciaga Motorcycle Bags, we don't blame you guys for going crazy for Nicole Richie's bag collection. In fact, let's revisit it now.
9. The Bags of Celine Winter 2013
Celine is a perennial favorite when it comes to must-seel bag collections, and the new shapes and finishes introduced in the brand's Winter 2013 collection tempted a lot of you to page through and see what to expect.
8. The Gorgeous Bags of Chanel Cruise 2014
Chanel is always good, but the brand's Cruise 2014 collection was particularly stellar, with a sportif flare and lots of lust-worthy handbags.
7. The Many Bags of Olivia Palermo</h4
Olivia Palermo may have started out as a notorious wannabe-socialite and moved on to the questionable confines of reality TV, but she's somehow managed to gracefully transition into a style star and notable trend-setter. Her style is polished and feminine, which is probably why so many of you loved this roundup of her handbag collection.
6. Exclusive: A First Look at Chanel Fall 2013 - Act I
Our custom photos of Chanel's Fall 2013 bags intrigued many of you, and with good reason - the collection was full of luxurious bags that would be perfect for everyday use.
5. Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM, MM, PM
Although this post is over six years old, readers continue to visit it to get information and size comparisons for one of the world's best-selling designer bags, the Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote.
4. The Many Bags of Kate Moss
There are few people more synonymous with modern fashion than Kate Moss, and this tour through her handbag collection spans every cool-girl bag you can imagine. (Hint: there's lots of black.)
3. The Many Bags of Nicky Hilton
In our opinion, Nicky Hilton has the best, most diverse and easily most expansive handbag collection we've ever profiled. She is truly One of Us - a handbag lover who's unrepentant in her desire for beautiful accessories.
2. The Many Bags of Hilary Duff
Of all our top 10 posts, I found Hilary Duff's high spot on the list the most surprising. It's not that she doesn't have a hugely enviable bag collection - she totally does - but I wasn't aware that so many people were interested in what this young mom wears. I stand corrected!
1. 50 Bags and the Celebs Who Carried Them at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2014
First place, by a mile, goes to all the uber-fashionable celebrities, industry insiders and camera-seekers who carried beautiful handbags to the shows of Paris Fashion Week Spring 2014. We profiled the bag goings-on at each of the global fashion fetes this season, but your interest in Paris far outpaced the competition, as did the quality (and number) of the bags on display.
