Chanel-Classic-Flap-Bag-Chanel-Boy-Bag-Comparison

Few brands are as deeply tied to a particular bag structure as Chanel. The legendary Coco Chanel made shoulder bags acceptably chic for upper-crust ladies over half a century ago, and the brand has been closely tied to chain straps, quilted leather and flap closures ever since.

Mothers-Day-2016-Gifts
Gift Guides

Being a mom can be a tough gig: the expectations are sky-high, the hours are long, the work itself sometimes literally thankless. Mother’s Day is a good time to stop and renew our appreciation for the work our own mothers and all the moms around us do, and while you’re at it, a really awesome gift couldn’t hurt.

Celebrities

I’m a bit biased, but I think all of the celebs featured herein are influential, albeit some of them only in fashion. In a larger sense, only one has made a lasting cultural impact that propelled her onto this year’s Time 100 list, and only one has the clout to bring one of her favorite designers along to the gala as her escort.

Bag Deals

We’re creeping ever closer to full-blown sale season, and that means things are getting a little more unpredictable in our weekly searches for the Internet’s best bag deals. There are always gems to be found, but they’re usually in stock in extremely tiny quantities, so the early bird gets the worm.

Louis Vuitton Twist MM with Braid Work Detail
Louis Vuitton

When I first started PurseBlog, I was super into Louis Vuitton. I remember getting my name on the list and securing a few sought after bags, including the Watercolor Speedy (which was only $1,270 when I bought it in 2008!).
