Today marks the beginning of the Bloomingdale’s Friends & Family Sale, where you can take 25% off almost any purchase of shoes, handbags, accessories or apparel. All you have to do is enter the code FRIENDS at checkout before the sale ends on March 29!
As you might imagine, after six years of writing about handbags every day, it’s not often that I see a bag from a major brand and think, Huh, that’s completely different than anything I’ve ever seen. That’s exactly what I thought when I saw the Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Snakeskin backpack, though, and I’m a little bit obsessed with it.
While this isn’t our giveaway, it is a giveaway I want you all to be able to be a part of. J. Mendel may be known for its fur and evening gowns, but the addition of handbags to this line has been really lovely. I already shared my favorite J. Mendel bag and now you have the chance to get your hands on a special J. Mendel bag that features an exclusive print developed for the Spring 2015 Enoc Perez collection. Read More…
Happy Friday, Roundup readers! We have a lot to share with you, so let’s get this party started. We dropped into the Kitchen this week, as well as the Jewelry Box. We also could not resist a little romp through the The Glass Slipper with our shoe-loving members, and we couldn’t drag ourselves out of Dior–soon, you will see why.
We have LOTS to talk about over on TalkShoes, so lets not waste any time! First, we think you’ll completely understand why we are smitten over these Fendi sandals. We bet that this summer, you are going to see tons of knee-high gladiator sandals; be sure to also check out all the fringe sandals our editors are currently coveting. We spotted Charlize Theron traveling in a casual in a pair of Isabel Marant sneakers while Shailene Woodley, on the other hand, opted for a classic pair of Elie Saab pumps.
I’m not an effusive person, by and large, but occasionally, Scandal manages to pull off something that makes me shout four-letter words out loud, in my apartment, to no one in particular. Last night, when it seemed like the story had largely concluded, there was one last not-so-metaphorical twist of the knife that had me talking to my house plants.
During New York Fashion Week, I had the opportunity to attend accessory designer Khirma Eliazov‘s Fall 2015 presentation. Eliazov’s handbag line, Khirma New York, specializes in exotic skins, including python, crocodile and water snake. Walking into the showroom, I was overwhelmed (in the best way possible, of course) by this alluring collection.
We’d tell you that this round of bag deals is here to celebrate the first day of spring, but let’s be real: we do this every Friday, because handbags and Fridays are enough cause for celebration in and of themselves. This set of bags does fill a lot of spring wardrobe needs, though, and it’s especially full of interesting textures and embellishments, which we always recommend adding to your wardrobe.
By “yesteryear”, I mean, of course, 2014. Two of 2015’s hottest new designer bags continued to gain steam this week (not going to name names; all will be revealed within), and a few of our faves from last year appeared on the arm/general vicinity of Karlie Kloss, who made it home from Paris Fashion Week.
Fashion shows are nice, but nothing beats getting to see new handbags up close; touching something, opening it up and putting it on your arm are the best ways to evaluate a collection. Luckily, we got to do just that yesterday with Coach’s Fall 2015 bags (and coats–just wait until you see the coats), and we think you’ll be just as excited about this collection as we are.
