Rolex-and-Chanel-Bag

We have just about finished April off, and we hope you have a splendid weekend planned. We are well into spring now and have lots to share from the PurseForum. We dropped into the Jewelry Box, Rebecca Minkoff and visited some old friends of the handbag variety.

Most-Expensive-Hermes-Birkin-Ever
In Case You Missed It

Not only is it the end of the week, but today is also the last workday of the month. To get you ready for what’s to come in May, we’ve collected the posts from the past month that were most popular with your fellow PurseBlog readers.

Is it possible that Bravo’s ever-expanding cast of Real Housewives are just as competitive about heel height as they are about every other aspect of their extremely affluent, made-for-TV lifestyles? Yes, yes it is, and we have ample photographic evidence to back that up.

Bag Deals

We’re creeping ever closer to full-blown sale season, and that means things are getting a little more unpredictable in our weekly searches for the Internet’s best bag deals. There are always gems to be found, but they’re usually in stock in extremely tiny quantities, so the early bird gets the worm.

Louis Vuitton Twist MM with Braid Work Detail
Louis Vuitton

When I first started PurseBlog, I was super into Louis Vuitton. I remember getting my name on the list and securing a few sought after bags, including the Watercolor Speedy (which was only $1,270 when I bought it in 2008!).

Feature-2
Shoes

Once a year, I like to treat myself to one big luxury item and what better time to splurge on myself than when celebrating my quarter-century milestone this past Monday? One year, I bought the Gucci Soho Shoulder Bag, another year I bought my first pair of Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps and last year, you all helped me decide between the Saint Laurent Monogram Satchel and the Chanel Wallet on Chain bag.

Celebrity Style

Celebrity bag collections are almost addictive to look at. The mixture of private wealth and paparazzi interest makes for incredible bag-spotting, and it’s easy to get carried away in imaging what it would be like to march into any designer boutique and pick whatever you wanted to take home.

Furla Fall 2016 Bags (2)
Savvy

There aren’t many brands that hit the sweet spot of delivering good value for your money without becoming wildly overexposed, but somehow, Furla has managed to do that for years. The Italian brand’s bags are sophisticated without being stuffy and they hit at a solidly “contemporary” price point, which makes Furla an ideal place to find both a work bag and a cute little weekend option.

Louis-Vuitton-Bag-Fun-Facts-3
Louis Vuitton

Whether or not you like the brand’s ubiquitous logo bags, one thing is inarguable: Louis Vuitton is the biggest handbag brand in the world. Not only does it sit atop luxury industry indexes, but it has a handbag history as long and storied as any in fashion.

Celeb-Bags-April-27
Celebrity Style

Celebs have turned back to their Chanel bags and Birkins in a big way this week, and it seems fitting, because what else should you carry when you’re standing on a helipad? Love them or hate them, few bags communicate the sense of wealth and power that a Birkin can, and that’s why the celebs we both love and hate (and love to hate) will continue to carry Birkins until the end of time.

Proenza Schouler Medium PS1 Review (1)
Proenza Schouler

I previously reviewed my large Proenza Schouler Crocodile PS1 and shared my love for the bag. While this Purseonals may seem redundant, there are a few reasons I want to share how my Medium Leather PS1 compares to the large.
