Here’s Lady Gaga, arriving at her father’s restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, in NYC, carrying a vintage Hermes Kelly Bag that has been…well loved. Gaga has a history of carrying altered, or, depending on your perspective, “defaced,” Hermes bags, so it’s not a stretch to think that she likes the half-destroyed look of this one.
At the PurseBlog offices, we’re all Gucci fans of varying degrees. Megs totally loves the brand’s bags, and Katherine and Bea are right behind her. While I think the brand makes gorgeous bags, they often don’t line up perfectly with my personal style; it’s a brand that I think looks great on other people. With the Gucci Jackie Soft Tote, which is brand new for Fall 2014, I might have found my Gucci match. Read More…
As sale season continues, the markdowns just keep getting better. Today, the Net-a-Porter Clearance Sale has begun, which means that both new markdowns have been added to the site’s sale section and further reductions have been taken on many existing discounts. That’s a double dose of good news for those of you who have been hedging your bets to see which deals are left at the end of sale season, and Net-a-Porter has some great pieces left.

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: The king of red-soled shoes has solidified his place in the shoe world and continues to make strides into the handbag world.

Actress Sophia Bush was recently seen leaving lunch at a restaurant in West Hollywood, carrying a Givenchy Antigona Bambi Tote. Givenchy tends to gravitate towards extremes when it comes to prints. They do abstractions of Disney characters, pretty florals and snarling Rottweilers, and they’re all wildly popular.
With so many online shopping destinations available, when you find a place that has both a great selection and great service, you should hold onto it dearly. That is precisely what MYHABIT is for me; I am an avid MYHABIT shopper and I check the site daily.
MYHABIT always has great selection, including current fan favorites, and because Amazon, the site’s parent company, prides itself on quick shipping, you’ll have a seamless shopping experience from the moment you add an item to your cart to the minute it arrives on your doorstep.

I’ve teamed up with MYHABIT to pick my favorite items to kick off your summer wardrobe. There’s no need to steer clear of bright colors when the weather is warm, so this selection is all about great designers, beautiful items and plenty of color options.
It’s no secret that Coach is in flux. After the departure of longtime creative head Reed Krakoff, the company has decided to pivot its public image in a more fashion-savvy direction.
