It’s safe to say all of us here at PurseBlog are big fans of Gucci. Amanda and Megs frequently mention their favorites from the brand, and one of my favorite bags in my own collection is my Gucci Soho Shoulder Bag.
It should shock no one who knows the history of Louis Vuitton that the brand’s luggage is still an enduring, functional favorite of luxury travelers (and plenty of globetrotting celebrities) the world over–after all, the company got its start by building custom travel solutions for European royals and nobility.
Celeb photos stress me out sometimes. For example, Ariel Winter is now legally old enough to get into certain clubs, which could get really weird, really fast. One of our favorite bag collectors is going through what is undoubtedly a very tough break-up this week, and a certain celeb’s Victoria Beckham get-up has me deeply, if temporarily, regretting all the life choices I made that led to me not being a sample size.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is probably my favorite sale of the year, aside from finding a random amazing bag deal at a sample sale or by chance. One of the biggest stressors for me, and I’m sure others, is sorting through the sale items and making sure I find not only great deals but also what I’m looking for.
First and foremost, let me say that I have come here this morning without any malice for the beloved Chloé Marcie Bag. Its existence has made innumerable bag shoppers happy for years (it’s been around since 2009 at least, based on our own posts about it), and although I’ve never felt personally attracted to it, the Marcie is a workhorse design with a lot going for it.
Celebrities are lucky for a lot of reasons, not least of which because they often get their hands on a bag before we ever can. Personally, I’ve always liked that brands give bags out early to famous friends–it makes it easy for me to see a bag being worn and gage how it translates from stock image to real life.
It may be blindingly hot and humid in New York City today, but in just a couple weeks, that will invariably yield to slightly cooler weather and fall wardrobes. Because of the various and sundry wonders of the Internet, you can get a head start on yours via pre-order, and tons of Fall 2016 bags just hit our favorite retailers on Friday.
Last week, Real Housewives lunched together, up-and-coming supermodels dined together, Eva Longoria packed a Birkin and got out of Dodge, and several of our most glamorous celebs promoted their multiple movies or TV shows. (Because they can never have just one.) Collective celeb handbag preferences continue to branch out in both Gucci‘s and Christian Louboutin‘s directions, while still staying true to Givenchy, Saint Laurent, The Row, and of course, Hermès and Chanel.
The Louis Vuitton Neverfull remains one of the most beloved everyday bags in the luxury handbag world. With diverse offerings including classic Monogram, Damier and Epi leather, the bag comes in a variety of sizes and is among the bags I see most commonly carried and that people search for on our site.
