We’ve got a special challenge today for our most bag-savvy readers, and especially our most bag-savvy UK readers! Pippa Middleton was recently spotted in London with this mysterious, buttermilk-hued top handle bag – can you ID it? Pippa and her sis are both known for implementing lots of pieces from smaller, more reasonably priced labels into their wardrobes.
English model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was recently photographed at the airport in LA carrying a cheetah Mulberry Del Rey Animal Print Bag. (You’ve definitely seen Rosie in Victoria’s Secret lingerie, and you might’ve seen her in Transformers 3, but I’m kind of hoping you didn’t.) Young British celebs love their Mulberry, which is of course based in London, like so many of my other fave designer brands.
Here’s Kirstie Alley in New York City, matching her cobalt blue trench to her extra chic Celine Luggage Tote. We find this particular tote truly interesting because the front panel is bright blue snakeskin instead of regular leather. The combo of blue snakeskin, black leather, and white gussets make this an especially gorgeous version of the Luggage Tote.
As each year passes, we feel incredibly lucky to be sharing the journey of PurseBlog with you. 2012 brought so much and we are excited for all the amazing projects and journey 2013 will bring. Thanks to all of you for all you do, for your comments and visits, and we hope to bring you more of the latest and greatest in the designer handbag world this year.
We love having the opportunity to work with other amazing sites around the interwebs and do it as often as we can. This time, we’re working with an awesome new site called Glossi.com, which mixes personal publishing with social media. I remember first hearing how this site would work and thought it might be too good to be true.
Every year, the color experts at Pantone get together and consult their crystal balls to tell us what’s going to be happening in the year ahead. The company’s track record on predicting elections and natural disasters is somewhat spotty, but when it comes to telling us which colors will be hot in the coming 12 months, Pantone’s usually right on the nose.
I’m one of those (annoyingly) festive holiday people who loves decorating, still wants to sit on Santa’s lap, sings every holiday song I know and dreams of a white Christmas each year. I’ve been humming a variety of holiday tunes in the office recently, and I’m waiting for someone on the team to give me a swift kick in the rear; even I know it can be rather irksome.
It’s been one crazy year thus far, but we have so much to be thankful for. Vlad and I are thankful for our family, friends, health, and great blessings. And on top of that, we are thankful for our work; from our amazing team we have the pleasure of calling our coworkers to our fabulous forum members and readers.
