When you think of the ideal Versace woman, you probably imagine someone Amazonianly tall, endlessly leggy, extremely blonde and curvy, but in a fashion way. A supermodel, but more in the vein of Victoria’s Secret than the alien babydolls preferred by high fashion brands over the past 15 years.
One of the aspects I miss most about living in NYC full-time is the constant access to sample sales. I lived down the street from one of the main sample sale hubs, and sometimes walking home from work or a meeting meant popping into whatever sample sale was currently happening and snagging crazy deals.
When the Chanel Cruise 2017 Cuba collection debuted, I immediately started to hunt for images of the bags. The usual sites we check for photos didn’t have closeups of the accessories, and I wanted to see what Chanel did for this monumental show–the first of its kind for an international brand in Cuba.
Ornate, unique embellishments are one of the many reasons that Christian Louboutin‘s loyal clientele keeps coming back for more, and in the designer’s Fall 2016 collection, there’s no shortage of detail in sight. We’ve already showed you some shoes from Louboutin’s Pre-Fall collection, and now that the Fall 2016 bags and shoes are making their way to online retailers, it’s time to check out the highlights from Louboutin’s latest collection.
The Dior Runway Bag was the first big accessory debut of the post-Raf Simons era at Dior (on the runway, as the name would suggest), and I was, admittedly, a little suspicious of it.

This week, celebs are dividing their time between St.Tropez, the West End, New York music festivals and the never-ending summer movie press circuit. And Craig’s, of course. (Like clockwork, you can always count on half a dozen Real Housewives to sup at Craig’s on any given week.) What are A-listers (and debatable B through D-listers) carrying at these high profile outings all over the globe, you ask?
The only thing I know with any certainty in life is you shouldn’t mess with another woman’s handbag, especially a woman you don’t know. Some rando named Nina broke that cardinal rule of the Woman Code, and it was the match we needed to ignite the gasoline fumes coming off last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County.
One of my favorite posts we do on PurseBlog is our Many Bags Of series, especially when it pertains to real life people and not just our celeb roundups. Vlad and I met Jennifer Fisher, famed jewelry designer and all around cool girl, a few years ago and took a peek in her bag to share with you and recently decided to check back in and follow up with her and her team to see the bags they carry to work.
