Valentino-Lock-Bag-and-Pumps

Another long week has drawn to a close, and that means it’s time to curl up with a warm computer (or another glowing device) and see what the PurseForum members have been up to this week. We visited Louis VuittonValentino and the Bag Showcase, and that was just the beginning.

Best-Fashionable-Back-to-School-Backpacks

It should be obvious to all comers that we think designer bags are great in almost any situation, but they’re not always the thing you want to have on your arm. If you’ve got a surfeit of cash and want to send yourself or your teenager to school with her bags in an Hermès Birkin, far be it from me to tell you not to.

Eddie-Harrop-Neon-Star-Weekender-Bag

If you’ve tried to buy a weekender recently, there is a sad fact that you know all too well: many of them are dreadfully boring to look at, and the ones that aren’t are often so expensive that you won’t be able to afford to take them on vacation for at least a year.

Bag-Deals-August-21

For as late in the season as it is (seriously, just one more day until the long Labor Day weekend!), we found some surprisingly great bag deals this week on sought-after designs from designers like Valentino, Givenchy and Dolce & Gabbana. Check them all out below, but don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Sleep Mask Pink

Typically when we talk about luxury accessories, it involves wallets, bag charms, and fobs. Some brands know how to expand their luxury accessory offerings even further and Bottega Veneta does just that. Bottega Veneta offer a full home line that includes some of the most decadent items, like a buttery soft and purely luxurious leather bed frame along with intrecciato tissue boxes to name a couple.

Seven-Best-Serums

Some beauty products are straightforward. Moisturizer does exactly what it sounds like. So do peels and cleansers. Serums, on the other hand, seem to confuse all but the most dedicated skincare aficionados. Should you use one? When should you use it in your routine?

Louis-Vuitton-Dora-Mini-Malletage-Bag

Nicolas Ghesquiere’s bags at Louis Vuitton keep getting better with every collection, and if you’ve been waiting to get your hands on something you saw on the runway for Fall 2015, your time has come.

A number of the brand’s new bags are available for your perusal (and some for your purchase) on the brand’s website, and the highlights include a new embellished leather called Epi Azteque.

Celebrity-Bags-August-20

There are two clear winners of this round-up: Fendi and Louis Vuitton. And, interestingly enough, almost every Louis Vuitton bag represented here is one of the brand’s classic logo designs instead of the newer, more subtle styles. Is it possible that celebs are getting nostalgic for logos as the brand purges some of its popular monogram styles of yesteryear?

Christian-Dior-Dune-Bag-Small-Graded-Alligator-Front

Back when we first got a glimpse at Christian Dior’s Fall 2015 runway bags, many of you noticed a new flap bag in the hands of a few models. The new design is the Christian Dior Dune Bag, and now that the collection has started trickling into stores, we have the pleasure of formally introducing the Dune.

Anya-Hindmarch-Ebury-Weatherwight-Maxi-Stickers-Tote

Anya Hindmarch was one of the first big designers to make novelty handbags a sought-after accessory, and if you’re looking to get your hands on one of her fast-selling designs (or her leather stickers for personalizing your own bags), you’re in luck.
