It seems that celebrities have already begun their deep holiday hibernation. The two weeks surrounding Christmas and New Year’s tend to be a no-promo zone for the vast majority of celebrities, though the myriad Star Wars premieres across the globe are giving us a little something to go on this year.
Not only is next week Christmas, but it’s also my 30th birthday. (Yes, unfortunately, my birthday is Christmas Eve.) I’ve been non-stop shopping both for my loved ones and for PurseBlog’s gift guides for the past month, and in that time, I’ve noticed a couple things that I wouldn’t mind receiving for either of next week’s gift-giving occasions.
Platform sandals are back,and they are taking off rather quickly, so bear that in mind as you make your post-holiday shoe purchases. Charlotte Olympia has already taken a quick lead on the platform front, and one of her latest styles is a huge hit with celebs this week (as well as with yours truly.) In other news, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out today, and whether that excites you or not, the movie’s LA premiere has provided us with some of our best shoes of the week; I imagine the subsequent international Star Wars premieres will continue to deliver on both the bag and shoe front.
We’re still in the thick of sale season, thankfully, and that means there are still scores of lust-worthy bags available at our favorite retailers on steep discount. This week, we’ve carefully selected well over a dozen from some of the most popular brands we cover on PurseBlog, including Givenchy, Valentino, Saint Laurent and Fendi.
The devil is always in the details when it comes to Christian Louboutin‘s shoes and bags, and it’s mostly due to the designer’s knack for combining ornate patterns and textures into one smooth, elegant whole. Louboutin’s Spring 2016 collection is especially exciting because we have three new bag styles to look forward to (and, of course, an array of fancy footwear).
