Everyone knows that your choice of travel bags is key to the imminent success or failure of your trip. Jessica Alba seems to have chosen well here, topping her hardcase luggage with a Christian Louboutin Farida Snakeskin Shopping Tote. (It’s hard to be incognito at JFK when you’re traveling with something as conspicuous as Christian Louboutin.) If snakeskin isn’t your bag (double entendre), you can buy our favorite version of the Farida – this muted grey and neon pink colorway – at Net-A-Porter for $2,195.
Recently, we’ve talked about both the best ways to carry a clear bag and how to organize your belongings in a big bag, so it only seemed appropriate that we get down to the nitty-gritty of both of these subjects eventually. PurseBloggers, today is that day – we’ve scoured the Internet for the coolest small accessories, from sunglasses to iPad cases, and we’ve assembled them for easy judgment.
Happy March 1st! The first day of spring is three short weeks away, and we could not be happier. Welcome to the first PurseForum Roundup of March. This week, we’ll spend some time gazing at the wonders in the Jewelry Box, particularly in two threads that really warmed up a cool, crisp evening with plenty of sparkle. We’ll also sneak a peek at some colorful Coach Saffiano bags and accessories, enjoy an eye-popping Céline vintage find, and marvel at what some creative Christian Louboutin owners have done to their shoes.
If you’ve been anywhere near your Twitter account on a recent Thursday evening, you might have noticed that basically everyone on Earth watches (and loves) Scandal. I’m hesitant to admit that I’ve never seen the show, but it’s the next thing up on my catch-up list after I get done re-watching The West Wing on Netflix, which is actually a fairly appropriate progression.
I think that Rue La La may have just hit the mother lode. Today’s sale features discount Christian Louboutin shoes (there are a few bags too!) and ladies, it’s unbelievable. Think basic black styles that never go on sale, plus seasonal merchandise you might have missed out on. There are a handful of items from the coveted spike collection, too. I won’t waste any more of your time – get on over to Rue La La when the sale begins at 11 AM EST and try your hand at scoring some brand new Louboutins.
Ahh, the Oscars! There’s nothing like a good red carpet, and the 2013 Academy Awards didn’t disappoint when it came to interesting evening bags. (Although, in our opinion, the clothes were better at the Golden Globes.) Roger Vivier once again won the night, but there was a pleasant amount of variation among the attendees.
One big trend that you almost couldn’t escape was actresses who matched their clutches exactly to the color of their dresses.
Happy Day After Valentine’s Day! Whether you are reveling in the love and gifts showered upon you yesterday or are just glad it’s all over, we thought it would be fun to visit some Valentine’s Day reveals around the PurseForum today. We selected the best of the best from Mulberry, Hermès and The Jewelry Box. Of course, there is more to February than Valentine’s Day (thank goodness) and more to this Roundup, including a sneak peak at the Balenciaga Spring colors, fun with Christian Louboutin’s new styles, jewelry from Van Cleef and Arpels and some great ideas for building your wardrobe.
[Editor's Note: This piece was first published in September 2012, but we thought that it was worth revisiting today, on the eve of yet another New York Fashion Week.]
The official start of New York Fashion Week is a mere 48 hours away, and as always, we’ll be covering the best bags and accessories that come down the runway at Lincoln Center and beyond.
One of the toughest victories in fashion is wearing a genuinely odd piece without looking like it’s wearing you. Such a feat requires great attention to detail and a sharp sense of styling; if the elements don’t fit together properly, the entire look topples over. It also requires, of course, the taste and willingness necessary to pick the perfect eccentric piece.
It’s been quite a while since we’ve had an occasion to talk about Christian Louboutin’s handbags. While not nearly as omnipresent as his platform pumps, the bags do have their own unique appeal. (No bright red bottoms though, just bright red lining. Which was definitely an oversight on someone’s part, I think.) Here’s actress Emmy Rossum, star of Showtime’s Shameless and the upcoming flick Beautiful Creatures, shopping in West Hollywood with her burgundy and black Christian Louboutin Farida Tote.
