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.
Well, first of all, it seems only human to acknowledge that watching Real Housewives of Orange County last night, in light of the day’s tragic events in Boston, seemed even sillier than it usually does. Still, one of the great beauties of entertainment of all types, even trashy reality television, is its ability to provide a small bit of mental or emotional relief (maybe relief isn’t the word – maybe it’s more like distraction) when we need it this most.
If you played along yesterday with our Net-a-Porter x PurseBlog Ultimate Fashion Hunt riddle and came up with the Chloe Alison Cotton and Leather Shopper as your answer, then congrats! You might be the lucky lady (or gent, I suppose) who gets to call this bag your very own. The winner is being contacted and we’ll publicly reveal the winners of all three bags at the end of the contest, but first, we want to talk a little bit about why this is one of the bags that we chose to give away with our friends at Net-a-Porter. (As if its charms weren’t already obvious.) Read More…
It seems like we’ve been talking about black-and-white bags forever, but based on the current slate of neutral, bicolor bags that have now arrived in stores for spring, the trend has only just begun. We gave you a rundown of nine styles to get you started on the right path back in January, but now we’ve got another dozen that you should consider now that spring has arrived.
Sometimes, a bag just doesn’t make sense until you see it on someone. I’ve seen the Anya Hindmarch Bathurst Bag on plenty of retail websites, and I’ve always found it a bit confusing; Why the big strap? Why make the big strap a different color? It’s a nice bag, of course, but it didn’t quite click for me until I saw someone carrying the black version with its blue strap (it also comes with a tonal black strap) in front of me on Madison Avenue over the weekend.
