Joyus

By now, I am sure some of you out there are familiar with the lifestyle site Joyus. It’s a fun, interactive, video-based site that lets viewers see items they may want to buy in motion. You know those times where you see an item online, even on a model, but aren’t exactly sure what it would look like on a moving, breathing human being like yourself?

Maison Martin Margiela Leather Holdall Bag

No matter how many Maison Martin Margiela pieces I see or how much I know abou the history of the brand, the first thing that pops into my head when I see the brands work is, “What’s that jacket, Margiela?” It’s a lyric from “N***** in Paris,” which is a Kanye West song that you’ve probably already heard a million times (but listen to it again after the jump – it’s not a bad way to start a Monday morning).

JCrew-Edie-Attache-Tote

The J.Crew Edie Bag has been a fan favorite since its debut. Not only does the bag have a chic, Mad Men-era retro feel to it without being costume-y, but it’s also a solid everyday bag priced at less than $300, which is a combination that’s difficult to duplicate elsewhere.

From our team here at PurseBlog, we wish you and your families a wonderful and magical Christmas and hope you enjoy this time with your loved ones.

So what did Santa drop off his sleigh for you this year?

The fashion world’s calendar confuses me. We are bundling up for all the cold weather and we haven’t even passed Thanksgiving, yet resort collections are slowly trickling into the stores. This only makes sense if you live in a tropical climate and I am certain that NYC does not qualify as that.

Every single year, I anxiously await the unveiling of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. For as long as I can remember, I stare at the catalog and dream of being able to “win” each out-of-this world package that the store has put together.

I should start by saying that I’m not a tanner. I’m naturally very fair and have no desire to change that, and even if I did, the desire to engage in the sort of extended outdoor activity that creates a tan is also not really in my wheelhouse.

To be perfectly honest with you, I never thought this day would come. Megs and I have been obsessing over nail polish for months (seriously, I’ve amassed about 200 polishes since spring), and we’ve been trying to find a good way to somehow connect it back to handbags so that we could share our obsession with you guys.

Colorblocking. Every fashion magazine and fashion lover has been both talking about and sporting this trend for the last few months. Funny thing is, we have all done it with many of our outfits before, yet right now the focus is on extreme lines and colors paired together in an eye-catching way.

Happy 235th Birthday America!! We are celebrating the 4th of July by eating anything red, white, and blue and spending time with friends. Also, I have spent most of the day watching solider homecoming videos which inevitably leads to never-ending tears of happiness (watch this video and tell me it doesn’t make you sob).
