In the grand scheme of things, growing up in Georgia made me pretty lucky when it came time for summer vacation. We were an eight hour drive away from both Disney World and the beaches of Destin, Florida, which meant that we spent plenty of time getting sunburned and sandy. I recently went back home to visit my parents, and during a shopping excursion with my mom, I ran across the Kate Spade Beach Club Beth Totes.
Today we take you with us to Chadwick Bell, a personal friend and an amazing designer. His Fall 2013 collection presented ladylike sportswear that can easily be worn by many.
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. One such bag from Modalu London became so popular after it was spotted on Pippa’s arm that the company renamed it after her.
As much as people like to joke about her, Kim Kardashian ain’t no fool when it comes to fashion, and handbags in particular. Before she was famous for being famous, Kim was an LA stylist and boutique owner who frequently sold things from her own closet on eBay. Just because Kimmy’s now an internationally famous megastar who’s about to birth Kanye West’s child doesn’t mean that those wise resale instincts have gone by the wayside; Heritage Luxury Auctions’ upcoming Handbags and Luxury Accessories Signature Auction will include two bags from Kardashian’s ever-growing Hermes collection.

If you’ve tried to track down a MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Satchel in the past few months, then you already know that the bag is one of Kors’ biggest bag hits ever – the best colors vanished from stores almost immediately, and pretty soon, even neutrals were scarce. We’ve noticed new shipments of the tote, which we’ve loved from the outset, arriving in stores recently, so now’s a good time to start looking again if you’ve wanted one of these very well-priced bags.
If you’re anything like me, coverage of the hippie-dippy nonsense known as the Coachella Music Festival does not interest you in the least. What does interest me (and perhaps some of you), though, is celebrities acting crazy while carrying fabulous handbags, and Coachella had more of that than perhaps you’d expect. Yes, stars carry ridiculously expensive bags to sweat, dance and get all gross and dusty in the stifling hot desert climate at Coachella.
As much as I love and adore the quirky retro-modern aesthetic that designer Consuelo Castiglioni has created at Marni, I don’t always love the prices the brand charges for simple, non-leather totes in graphic prints. I always have a hard time reconciling designer price tags on those types of bags, though – there’s no such think as luxury cotton canvas, no matter how much anyone will try and convince me otherwise.
Brazilian model and Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio looked extremely smart at her birthday celebration at Bagatelle restaurant in LA last week. Alessandra rung in her 32nd consecutive year of superior good looks in an ensemble that paired the classic, statement-making Alexander McQueen Crystal Britannia Union Jack Skull Clutch with a long sleeved white minidress and nude Saint Laurent pumps. You’d hardly suspect that a mere two days lady, she’d be boho-ing it up at Coachella in a crop top and pink Daisy Dukes.
Gucci has crept its way into the hearts, minds and closets of the PurseBlog staff over the past year, so we were pretty psyched to see so many fabulous and covetable options make their way into today’s Gucci sale on Rue La La. Besides bags (and there are plenty of good ones to choose from), there’s a huge selection of watches, sunglasses and a handful of shoes.
You wont want to miss the chance to grab these goodies at significant savings.
