Dry Skin Essentials

The first thing that it’s important for you to know about this post is that I have really, really dry skin. I’m 28, and people always say that skin gets drier as you age, so I shudder to think where I’m headed from here. The second thing you need to know is that I have successfully conquered my dry skin, and I’ve done it with the daily use of the five products below.

Rachel Zoe Givenchy Lucrezia Bag

Rachel Zoe was recently spotted running errands on her home turf with husband Rodger and son Skyler. Here’s Rachel carrying a black Givenchy Lucrezia Bag with a croc panel while picking up a few items at the Malibu Country Mart. You can find a similar black Lucrezia with a quilted panel for $2,450 at Barneys. We had the pleasure of profiling Rachel Zoe for one of our hugely popular “What’s In Her Bag” features last year, and we suggest you check it out.

Instagram Roundup Sweets

If you follow our Instagram (which you totally should), then you’ve probably noticed we really like our sweets. (Emphasis on REALLY.) It should come as no surprise we’re suckers for just about any sweet we spot on our Instagram feeds, too. From French macarons to fro-yo, there’s no sweet we won’t eat. Take a look at some of the yummiest treats we spotted on our feed this week, but beware, they may cause cravings.

Proenza Schouler PS1 Bag

As you might imagine, we spend a lot of time in the PurseBlog offices talking about bags. Bags we’re plotting to buy, bags we can only buy in our imaginations, bags we think are a waste of money – it all comes up eventually. Last week, Bea posed an interesting question to me: if I had $1,500 and could buy any handbag I wanted, what would I buy? Which, in turn, lead me to a question of my own: where have all the great $1,500 bags gone? Read More…

Perfect Pairs

Technically, this may not be a Perfect Pair, but I just couldn’t help myself. I was in the accessories zone. Sometimes all it takes is one accessory to ignite the perfect look, and that’s exactly what sparked this ensemble. For me, it all started with the Joelle Hawkens by Treesje Hunt Satchel, and the rest was history.

With its zipper edging and front detailing, this Joelle Hawkens satchel has a laid back, downtown feel that’s compelling.

Kate Upton Fendi 3Jours Tote

Kate Upton was recently spotted doing a little shopping in Paris with her The Other Woman costar Leslie Mann, who’s hidden behind someone’s head in the photo above while leaving the Saint Laurent boutique. Kate is carrying a Fendi 3Jours Shopping Tote. The embroidered leather design on the front of the bag looks a lot like a computer chip, n’est ce pas?

Want It Wednesday All White Everything

I grew up in the Deep South, in a deeply southern family, so there were a few rules for dressing that were always clear. Among the strictest of standards was the idea that you don’t wear white before Easter, and although that rule (along with its post-Labor Day twin) have long been scuttled, it’s still a strong association in my mind.

Joan Holloway Mad Men Handbags
