When you think of Christie’s, your first associations are probably with exquisite artwork, fine jewelry, rare antiques and the most exclusive handbags in the world. That impression certainly isn’t wrong (the auction house is legendary for a reason), but at the Christie’s September Handbag and Accessories Online Auction, estimated sale prices on beautiful designer pieces start as low as $300 and range well into the five figures, which means there’s a little something in the sale to upgrade almost any wardrobe.
So, I have some really exciting news for you and the truth is you don’t want to read much about it. You want to click on the link here (ok I’ll link it many times in this post) and run over to THE OUTNET to see the Sale of Sales!
From the beginning, Amanda and I have been big fans of Mansur Gavriel. The duo behind the brand found a niche in the bag market with classic, minimalist designs at a price point that is hard to beat.
Twice a year, one of our favorite international retailers, LUISAVIAROMA, puts on a three-day event that’s difficult to put into words. Firenze4Forever had it’s 12th edition from January 9 to 11, and the team at LVR was kind enough to include us again in this magical experience.
Often when I’ve talked about Balenciaga, the discussion of rare colors and the right season/year/color arises. There is a long thread (dating back to 2006!) on the PurseForum that deals with the rarest Balenciaga bags, which gives great insight into the discussion and reasoning behind which bags are most sought-after.
We just announced that we’re giving away a Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag and now we also have the exclusive on the upcoming Mansur Gavriel restock.
Since hitting the scene a mere three years ago, Mansur Gavriel has made a name for itself quickly and strongly. Both Amanda and I are major fans of the brand and have a few Mansur Gavriel bags that we carry often and really adore.
As we recently announced, we’ve partnered with The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse to help raise awareness about and aid victims of domestic and financial abuse. Last week at The Plaza Hotel, we joined The Allstate Foundation, 2015 Purple Purse ambassador Kerry Washington and handbag designer Dee Ocleppo to celebrate the cause and catch a glimpse of the new bag.
In 1999, Pierre Hardy was created, starting with women’s shoes and following in 2006 with the introduction of handbags. Since then, the brand has made waves in the accessories world, adding a modern, geometric twist to the sometimes staid worlds of designer handbags and shoes and created a cult following in the process.
Today, we’re excited to announce our participation in a very important cause. Megs and PurseBlog are part of the 2015 AllState Foundation Purple Purse PURSEonal Voices network, which means we’re one of a handful of sites supporting the campaign’s efforts to spread awareness and assist victims of domestic violence and financial abuse.
