Dior-Diorever-Tote-Unboxing

We are quickly working our way through April, and it’s time for another edition of the Roundup. This week, we made some quick stops in the Playground, The Glass Slipper and so much more. Thank you for making us one of of your Friday stops, and welcome!

Most-Expensive-Hermes-Birkin-Ever
Hermès

It was just last June that we reported to you about a new high in handbag resale prices: Christie’s Hong Kong had just sold a pink crocodile Hermès Birkin for a record high of $221,000. That record didn’t even make its first anniversary; earlier this week, Privé Porter announced it had broken that record with a $298,000 Birkin of its own, and it’s one that will look familiar to PurseBlog readers.

Miranda-Kerr-Giuseppe-Zanotti-Snake-Wrap-Sandals
Celebrities

We have long admired Miranda Kerr because few celebs (yes, even supermodels) make A-list style look so effortless. Last week, we showed you all the chunky heels Taylor Swift has been favoring as she continues to careen through the fly-by-night fashion preferences of her mid-twenties, but if the thought of chunky heels (and being in your mid-twenties) triggers a slight gag reflex, well, Miranda’s sartorial shoe game is the perfect antidote to all of that.

Well, we’ve made it. Here’s to another week marked off our calendar and another fun-filled weekend to look forward to. While the sales were scarce this week, we searched the internet high and low to bring you the best-priced bags we could find.

Loeffler Randall Friends and Family Sale

Amanda and I have been longtime fans of Loeffler Randall, a brand that exudes a NYC cool-girl feel. I first met Jessie Randall in 2012 when we did our first feature on her, and my love affair with her designs (ok, and her) have only grown since then.

Steve Madden Sassey Two-Piece Fringe Sandals $129 via Macy's 

Aquazzura Wild Thing Sandals $785 via ShopBop
Shoes

Footwear trends come and go, and so far, Spring 2016 has brought along plenty of its own. In the upcoming months, we’re eagerly awaiting lace-up sandal, low, chunky heels and spring fringe. And while we would love to put everything on the plastic and act like the bill isn’t coming, sometimes practicality is required.

Portero Designer Bags

My love for handbags started at a young age, and it began with lusting, not owning. I used to go to the mall with my friends in junior high, and while they were in Limited Too, I was in department stores, looking at bags.

Barneys-Purple-Card-April-2016We’re currently at the peak of the full-price designer retail season, but if you’re looking to stock your spring closet and still get a little something in return, we have an excellent opportunity for you. The Barneys Purple Card Event starts today and runs through April 17, and during that time, you can get a $25 gift card toward a future purchase for every $250 you spend. For an average designer bag, that’ll put you well on your way toward a new pair of summer sandals.

PurseBlog Asks

You never know how your circumstances are going to change your perspective. When I lived in Atlanta, I hated bags with extra shoulder straps because their necessity didn’t make sense in my car-centric life, and without an appreciation for their functionality, they just looked like clutter to me.

Favorite-Beauty-Products
Beauty

Over the past couple years, I’ve somehow managed to develop a somewhat intricate beauty and skincare routine, and that means I try a lot of products and have a lot of opinions. (The latter should not be surprising for longtime PurseBlog readers.) As I do periodically, I’ve gathered together my recent favorites in makeup and beyond and explicated exactly why I think each of them is so great.

Louis-Vuitton-Epi-Alma-BB-Bag
Louis Vuitton

When people think of Louis Vuitton bags, they usually think of either the brand’s ubiquitous brown and beige monogram, or maybe one of its equally iconic Damier check prints. As with most things, though, the real treasures lie just below the surface, and I’m not talking about all of the smooth leather bags Nicolas Ghesquiere has introduced in his tenure at Vuitton.
