Recently, Megs responded to one of our readers who was looking to choose between three options to buy her first premier designer bag, and her question got me thinking about how the accessories landscape must look for someone just beginning in 2016.
Labor Day Weekend will be here far sooner than I’d prefer (only two weeks!), but with that summer-ending cloud, there’s at least one silver lining: the advent of fall dressing, which provides opportunities to both whip out some old favorites and pick up some new pieces to flesh out your wardrobe.
At the PurseBlog offices, we’re putting the finishing touches on some new stuff before our we all get a little bit of much-needed rest next week (don’t worry, there will still be plenty of things to ready every day!), but for now, we’re here to do a different thing of great importance: look at the best designer bag discounts on the Internet this week.
When I started PurseBlog over 11 years ago, it was because I absolutely loved bags. I remember how excited I got when I’d get to the mall and go into the Coach store or department store to look at bags.
Boot season is slowly creeping up on us and now is the perfect time to start getting ready for the brisk weather coming our way. Next week, the team will be going on our yearly summer break (don’t worry, we’ll still be delivering great stuff to read!), and I’ve already carved out time to start shopping for some new fall pieces.
Coach is America’s biggest homegrown accessories brand, not to mention arguably the world’s most important contemporary handbag brand, so we always pay attention when there’s a new Coach collection to see. That’s especially true since creative director Stuart Vevers launched Coach 1941, the company’s more fashion-forward and luxurious offshoot, and the Coach 1941 Fall 2016 collection, which just launched on Coach.com, demonstrates exactly why.
In some ways, celebrities live on a different planet than you and I, but in other ways, they’re not that different at all. Most famous people weren’t born famous (or rich), and if they became that way in adulthood, they probably still remember what it was like to be a normal.
The entire Kardashian family loves Hermès bags just about as much as any other celebrities I can think of. While Kim loves her Birkins as much as the next Kardashian, Kris, the matriarch of the family constantly carries Hermès bags; recently we did the math to see how much Kris Jenner’s Hermès collection is worth (hint: over $500,000).
We spend the majority of our time hear talking about handbags, but what goes in them is just as important, and thankfully, some designers put as much care into the design of their wallets and small leather goods as they do into their big-name bags.
Remember when you were freshly 18 and it felt like you could finally go out and do anything? Remember how liberating that felt? Except you couldn’t actually do ANYTHING, because you weren’t a trust fund baby (though some of you maybe were, but just go with me here), so you had to satisfy your need for adventure by smoking a legal cigarette or maybe registering to vote?
