Personally, I think that right now is a very exciting time of year to want things. Not only are the stores filled with lots of new things, but fall and winter require so much stuff. Sweaters and shirts for layering, cold-weather accessories, shoes for different types of weather and precipitation, all-leather everything, coats and jackets – the options are just endless, on top of all the handbags and accessories that we generally want.
Tomorrow is National Handbag Day, and the entire PurseBlog team is so thrilled to celebrate with you! We’ve been sharing some of the best stories about handbags with you this week, including the story behind PurseBlog, my bags around the world and a fun post calling out the the best handbag name-checks in musical history.
Oscar de la Renta is known for so many things – his incredible evening gowns, his flair for the dramatic, his skill with embellishment that is unparalleled in the fashion industry. Over the last couple of seasons, though, de la Renta has also quietly been becoming a source for luxurious, detailed handbags that will fit right in on the arms of the impeccably dressed women who wear his clothing (or, at the very least, dream of wearing it).
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.
If you didn’t know about the Kate Spade Surprise Sale before now, don’t worry – the fine folks at the brand have been so benevolent as to extend the markdowns, which go as high as 75% off regular retail – for a few more hours. Head on over to Kate Spade and shop an enormous selection of handbags, clothes, jewels and shoes, way below retail, until 11:59 p.m. Pacific time.
