Finding a premium designer bag under $1,000 isn’t as easy as it used to be even a few years ago. Not only are leather and labor prices ever on the increase, but designers keep prices high in order to keep an air of exclusivity around their products and prevent lower-market customers from snagging their most recognizable (and bankable) goods. That’s what makes the Givenchy Easy Tote pretty unique. Read More…
Here’s one of our favorite celeb handbag aficionados, Miranda Kerr, leaving a photo shoot in NYC (thus, the dramatic smoky eyes), and carrying a beautiful Hermes Kelly Bag, which looks extra classy against her lovely navy blue wool trench. As you can see, this is clearly the more casual way to carry a Kelly, with its front straps and clasp undone.
On PurseForum, there are threads in each designer section in which members share their purchases for the month. I don’t buy a new bag every month, even though many believe I do (and I wish I did), but watching others unwrap their newest goodies is the next best thing.
Each month we will open up the discussion to you to see if you bought a new handbag or fabulous accessory.
Whether you’re shopping for a gift for your Valentine or just looking to treat yourself, our friends at YOOX have a pre-Valentine’s surprise for you: 10% off and free shipping on every purchase with code YOOXLOVE10.

You guys seemed to dig our debut of The International Edit last week, and since we like to keep our Internet friends happy (IRL friends, too, but mostly Internet friends), we’re here to bring you another dose of the bet new arrivals and fashion finds from the finest International retailers in the land. Or in other lands, actually. Their lands are different than our lands.
If you haven’t been able to get your paws on a Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag (or tote, or clutch), you’re not alone. Demand has far outpaced supply for the young New York-based brand, but with a new season nigh, new shipments are expected at retailers in late February. Those shipments will include the bags that are already sought-after, like the red-lined Bucket Bag, but the duo behind Mansur Gavriel also has some new interior tricks up their sleeves for spring.
I love buffalo plaid. It’s almost always red and black, which is my favorite color combination, and I’m already a pretty big appreciator of plaid, both on my person and on the persons of male-type people. Considering that, my affection for the Jack Spade Dipped Buffalo Check Utility Tote isn’t exactly shocking. If you or your man is sick of staid, neutral man bags but still want a classic look, this tote is a perfect option.
It’s Fabulous Friday, everyone! Many of us have had weather challenges this week, and we hope you all wrapped things up safely and can enjoy a weekend at home, perhaps visiting the PurseForum! To help you find your way, we have selected some gems from this week’s conversations to get you started with the PurseForum Roundup. Thanks for joining us!
Diane Kruger was recently spotted doing a little shopping in West Hollywood with the Jason Wu Daphne 2 Snakeskin Satchel.
