Celebrity Thanksgiving Bags

Celebs spent their Thanksgiving breaks the same way we all did: navigating crowded airports and juggling unwieldy luggage, all to break bread with the family members they love but see all too rarely. All but two of the celebs pictured below are outside or inside of airports, and because celebs fully expect to be photographed at airports, their bag choices are always truly top-notch. Read More…

She’s super into Chanel lately, but also of particular note are her clutches–Bella attends a ton of events, parties and premieres, and unlike some of her bagless brethren, she almost always carries a little bag to coordinate with her outfit.

About a month ago, you helped me decide on my new pretty pink Givenchy bag. It is my first Givenchy bag, and while my collection of bags is fairly sizable, I recognize that there are brands I’m lacking. It isn’t always because of want, but I guess I just never get to the place of pulling the trigger and find other brands that I like.

I own quite a few Celine bags, actually I kind of went on a spree and seemed to keep buying Celine for two years. Then I moved onto Gucci and have added quite a few Gucci bags to my collection in the past year. But with my new Givenchy, I realized there are other brands I don’t own at all or haven’t purchased in a long time.

I adore Dior bags, the Lady Dior is one of the most stunning classic bags. My lifestyle is a bit more laid back and that is probably why I haven’t taken the Dior plunge, but I do see it in my near future.

Another brand is Fendi. You would think with how much I talk about Fendi bags I’d have a closet filled with 2Jours and 3Jours. I do have a few monster charms, including Karlito, but the last Fendi bag I bought was the Spy. Yep, you read that right and that is so long ago.

What about Goyard? We rarely cover Goyard because finding information is so hard. The brand is secretive but the house has a long history and many are fanatics. I do love their classic tote, it would be a great addition to my collection, that’s for sure.

And another major brand I don’t seem to add to my closet, Louis Vuitton. I am drawn toward the soft leather from the brand, but the prices are rather high and I tend to get sticker shock from the Louis Vuitton bags I love.

Are there brands you love but don’t own?

Instagram Clutches.jpg

Along with holiday parties comes an opportunity to quirk up our outfits with holiday clutches and festive statement pieces. That’s why we took to Instagram this week to find some seriously good bag inspiration. So while these tiny bags may not be able to hold your everyday essentials, it may be worth it to leave your giant wallet at home to carry one of these statement-making bags.

Take a look below at 13 of our favorites we found this week and tell us what you think in the comments!

Mulberry Bayswater Double Zip Bag

The past 18 months have been a long, strange trip for Mulberry, and at least one part of that journey got an equally strange ending last week. On Thursday, while every sector of the American fashion industry (including the press) was roasting turkeys in their hometowns, the brand named Céline’s Johnny Coca as its new creative director. The move had been rumored for weeks, but the particular timing indicates that Mulberry may have some more work to do before it’s ready for prime time again. Read More…

Celebrity Handbags December 2
