Friday! Thank goodness. It did not come a moment too early this week. Welcome to the PurseForum Roundup, PurseBlog’s weekly romp through the PurseForum to bring you bits and bobs from the conversations filling its halls. This week, we visited some Contemporary Designers to see what our members have been buying and took a stroll through the Playground for some serious discussions.
Here’s Reese Witherspoon, looking particularly Reese Witherspoon-esque while shopping on Montana Boulevard in LA. She’s carrying a petite, black Saint Laurent Micro Sac de Jour Bag, and those gorgeous fuchsia suede sandals aren’t bad either. (If you know who made them, let us know in the comments.) You can find Reese’s bag at Nordstrom for the not-so-petite price of $1,995.
My penchant for Prada has taken a significant upturn, mainly thanks to Scandal’s Olivia Pope. Liv dresses so elegantly yet always looks comfortable, and this combination is ideal to me. Her accessory game is spot-on, always relying on classic beauties, and her preference for Prada has caught the eyes of many handbag lovers.
I wasn’t able to get behind the Prada face bags, but the Prada Saffiano Cuir Double Bag, provides a stunningly timeless design, all the way down to Prada’s signature saffiano leather and inverted triangle logo.
Spring has sprung, and with that, our bags are getting a little brighter and a little lighter as the weeks go by. For this edition of Bag Deals, we found lots of crossbodies and mini bags, as well as a beach tote to help you kickstart (or continue your ever-growing) spring bag collection. Check out the gallery below to find some amazing sales on designers like Elizabeth and James, Burberry and Marc Jacobs. Also, while you’re at it, be sure to check out our Deals Page for even more sales happening on the Internet. Read More…
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 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.
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.
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…
As we mentioned yesterday, the final season of Mad Men starts this weekend, and because several members of the PurseBlog team are totally obsessed with me show (present company included), we’re pretty excited. We also figured this would be a perfect time to update our handbag surveillance of Betty Draper herself, January Jones. Read More…
The opportunity to shop the inventories of hundreds of specialty boutiques around the world is pretty enticing, but paying for shipping to the US from a small boutique in Italy doesn’t sound all that fun. Today, we can solve that problem for you. Starting now and ending in the wee hours of April 11, you can get free worldwide shipping at farfetch.com. Happy shopping.
