Saturday was our third annual National Handbag Day, and handbag lovers everywhere united to share their love of bags with us! This year, #nationalhandbagday trended on Instagram all day, and as well as on Twitter during part of the day and in certain areas.
Judith Leiber occupies an incredibly unique spot in American fashion. For decades, the brand has created meticulously jeweled evening bags in both traditional and whimsical forms, and they’ve been carried to some of the most important formal events in American culture, from the Academy Awards to presidential inaugurations.
Cheeky clutches may be a recent trend for some brands, but the idea has but one true originator: Judith Leiber. The brand is famous for its Austrian crystal-covered minaudieres, crafted to resemble things like elephants or bundles of grapes.
You’ve likely seen plenty of coverage of the dresses stars wore on the red carpet at last night’s Chine-themed Met Ball, but now, we’re here to do what we do best: look at bags. Sometimes formal events don’t yield a great selection of accessories, but last night’s clutch choices could scarcely have been better.
It’s legitimately feels like spring in about three quarters of the US right now, and that means it’s time to bust out the short shorts, the Céline bags, and…Sharon Stone? Sharon is making herself very available to paparazzi this month, for reasons I can’t quite pinpoint, but it’s okay because she looks fabulous and her bag picks are CHOICE.
Good morning! It’s time for our weekly look at some of eBay’s best bags and accessories. We have a wonderful selection this week, including a beautiful Chanel Flap in watersnake, an absolutely incredible watch from Bulgari that we just had to share, something a little different from Judith Leiber and so much more!
The Academy Awards, because of their extremely formal and buttoned-up nature, often make for boring bag-spotting. Thankfully, though, this year’s red carpet provided more handbag eye candy than we’re used to. From vintage Van Cleef & Arpels to crocodile and rhinestone Louis Vuitton, there’s plenty to look at in the photos below.
