The Many Bags of the Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch

It can be oddly easy to forget that stars are actually people. The vast majority of famous folks conduct their private lives in ways that aren’t all too unfamiliar – they decorate for the holidays, they take their kids to fun activities on the weekends, they gather up for family photos. There’s perhaps no better place on Earth to observe this phenomenon than the Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood, California. At Mr. Bones, you can see, be seen, pick out some pumpkins, play in a bounce house with your kid and get your photo taken by the paparazzi, all in one afternoon.

For the occasion, both paparazzi and celebs of varying tiers come out in force, and although some of them seem to leave their handbags in the car (unsafe, ladies!), plenty trot into the pumpkin patch with handbags worth drooling over. Some of them do it to entertain their kiddos, other are clearly just there to bask in the flash bulbs – we’re ok with either, as long as a good bag is involved.

    Pretty sure the prada is real, from their little punk-rock/skull-bone days, Christina just makes it look fake, lol

      If that bag is real, I need to reconsider my obsession with Prada. I mean, man…that is one cheap-looking bag.

        Cristina net worth is over 100 million dollars, I am pretty sure she can by a birkin bag in every color. Have a seat. You are supposed to be a positive purse blogger.

        I agree!This is an authentic Prada bag.Mayb from one of der seasonal collection.Its not even expensive,so not worth buying a fake version of this..especially coming from a Hollywood Star.
        My husband has this tote with some initials on it.
        N yes..Iv never seen u write in this negative tone before.:0

        I disagree – personally am tired of seeing LOTS of celebs with fake bags and think it should be noted. doesn’t have to be nasty – just noted. Amanda and team owe it to the audience to be clear if a bag looks possibly fake.

        Amanda didn’t say anything about Christina, she was talking about the bag (which is what you do on a purse blog/forum). Make sure you understand what is written before you attack a person.

        Please have a seat and keep it moving.

        Please leave the played out jargon in 2010 and have a great day.

        1) She has had a bad career crash 2) She’s a fashion trainwreck 3) Plenty of wealthy people buy fakes.

    Really enjoyed this collection. And that Coach legacy duffle is really starting to get under my skin- as in I really need to get it…

  • Sandra

    Do some of these people (celebrities I guess)….go to this pumpkin patch over and over for the publicity? If so….that is kind of sad, right?

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Amanda Mull

      Oh, totally. Mr. Bones is so notorious for photographers that you should see the people I DIDN’T include in this post because they’re not actually famous.

  • Yerani_KM

    Do they serve cocktails at this place? Because the ONLY reason the likes of Joanna Krupa (barf) and Paris Hilton are there is to be photographed. These people are so shallow! Maybe next time a close up of the bags with just a slice of their arm in the pics. And I concur with Kevinkim, the Prada X-Tina is carrying is real, I know two people who also own it (even more barf).

    Wow, so many trips to a pumpkin patch. As the mom of 4 boys, I never went to a pumpkin patch more than once a season. Some of these women are there a lot. They better have a biergarten with it.

  • ottercat

    Fame whores in the pumpkin patch. Scary!!!!

    Amanda, you really need to chill on your attack on Christina Aguilera. Personally I don’t think her Prada is fake, she certainly can afford real bags, why would she wanna carry a fake? Because the style is a bit peculiar does not automatically make it fake. I also don’t agree that she is a “has been”, she will forever remain one of the female artists with the best voices in the industry and a bit of a “dull spell” doesn’t immediately constitute a has been.

    Just chill a bit.

    • Hadrien

      I think it’s a great bag, your tastes are on the old side.

  • Jane

    I am surprised of the negative tone as well. Honestly I just want to see less celebrities and more critiques on bags like you used to do back in the day. I miss it so much!!! I miss the varying price as well from the two different bag pages. Don’t get me wrong I like to look at the celeb purses just not all the time.
