Celebrities may get to enjoy a quiet, intimate meal within the walls of Craig’s, but they are well aware that they will be extensively photographed once they step outside its confines, and they usually dress accordingly.


Shoppers, start your engines. We broke this news on National Handbag Day, and now it’s time to open Mansur Gavriel’s website in a browser tab at work and set an alarm for 10:55; the restock will be live at 11 a.m.

TS Notice 10_19 Are those Monday blues slowly creeping up on you? Fret not, because over on TalkShoes, we have just the pick-me-up you’re looking for. We’re kicking off the week with the Manolo Blahnik Topos Crystal Buckle Evening Sandal, and we want to know what you think of the new crystal buckle design. What does Gabrielle Union wear to go get a pedicure? If you thought flip-flops, think again. We spotted Union wearing a pair of luscious suede Alexandre Birman sandals! Don’t forget to shop the the weekend’s nine best shoe deals, because nothing cures the blues quite like shopping.


If you’ve made your way to PurseBlog on this day or any other, it’s safe to say that you have champagne tastes, no matter whether you have the budget to match. We know what it’s like not to be able to buy everything you want (we spend all day looking at designer handbags, remember), so today we have some bags that may help.

Givenchy Goat Hair Nightingale

I haven’t played this game with you guys in a while and this Givenchy bag seemed like the perfect opportunity. I remember when we first saw this bag (some of you had thoughts), but I feel like it can stand on its own when it comes to gathering opinions.

TS Notice 10_16 Over at TalkShoes, we think you will understand why our editor’s latest obsession is this pair of Christian Louboutin So Kate Metallic Python Pumps. They are alluring, exotic and mysterious; what more could you ask for? The red carpet calls for a sleek pair of Casadei Blade Pumps, or at least Elisabeth Moss thinks so! Lastly, the beautiful Olivia Wilde chose to wear a pair of chunky-heeled Charlotte Olympia sandals to her appearance on “The View,” and we bet they’re the prettiest shoes you’ll see today!


Another week draws to a close, and that means it’s for another look at reveals and conversations on the PurseForum. Thank you for joining us! This week we visit Chanel, our Beauty & Makeup subforums and the Bag Showcase.


We mentioned earlier this week that structured, long-strap flap bags are the hottest thing going in handbags right now, and Givenchy may have our favorite of the new crop. The first version of it to hit the Internet was immediately crowned our Bag of the Week, and now several more materials, colors and sizes have arrived.
