Celebrity-Designer-Bags-February-10

Doing these celeb round-ups has really given me a more comprehensive idea of what celebs are carrying on any given week. (Amanda has always been the one tasked with wading through piles of celeb photos to make these selections, bless her.) It means I see almost 20 different bag selections every week instead of just five, which leads me to observations, like the fact that brands like Proenza Schouler and Chloé are more popular right now than you might suspect.

Balenciaga Metallic Edge City

Balenciaga released its metal-edged bags a couple of seasons ago, and yesterday, I found myself taking a look at all of the versions on Balenciaga’s website. When I came back to PurseBlog to see if we’ve shared these bags with you, and realized we haven’t.

Christian-Louboutin-Sweet-Charity-Mini-Heart-Shoulder-Bag

A few weeks ago, I started to notice bags with hearts on them popping up here and there. At first, I assumed it was something of a timely gimmick; after all, Valentine’s Day is Saturday and some designers just can’t resist a theme, especially if it’s based on a holiday in which gifts are often given.

Bag: Diane von Furstenberg Micro Voyage Crossbody Bag

Price: $198 via MATCHESFASHION.COM

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Don’t let the “micro” fool you–this little bag is big enough for weekend essentials, and it’ll look super smart (not to mention way more expensive than it is) in almost any setting.

2015-Grammy-Awards-Celebrity-Handbags

There weren’t quite as many clutches to be seen on the 2015 Grammys red carpet as there usually are at major awards shows, but the ones that were there are definitely worth looking at. Grammys fashion is always so pleasantly bonkers, and almost all of the clutches we spotted were special in one way or another.

SPL941167_077 The weather has been dull and dreary, and over on TalkShoes, our editor is dreaming of sunshine and sandals with her favorite New Arrivals from MATCHESFASHION.COM. Forget getting tickets to the SuperBowl, we wish we were able to get tickets to a Pre-Super Bowl party, because Chrissy Teigen looked gorgeous in a glam pair of Stuart Weitzman sandals. Before we wrap things up, it’s Monday, so don’t forget to check out the weekend’s best shoe deals.

Best-Spring-Designer-Bags-2015

As you’ve likely noticed, spring bags have started to arrive at your favorite online retailers in full force. Between the bags that are newly in stock and the sea of pre-orders that will be delivering in the next few weeks, now’s the time to shop for a new spring bag if you want the best selection of colors and sizes to choose from.

PurseBlog Rue La La Boutique

As most of us do, I have a slew of sites that I check regularly. Many revolve around shopping, and one of my favorite, daily go-to sites is Rue La La. I use Rue regularly to grow my collection of bags (like my latest Givenchy Antigona), but also for shoes, clothing and home decor, all at a healthy discount. I’m a bit of a Rue addict.

I’m excited to share the Rue La La + PurseBlog Exclusive Boutique with you; it’s a collection of my favorite bags and shoes that I know you will love. The boutique includes brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Christian Louboutin and so much more. The list is long, but I wanted to put together a boutique that offers something for everyone, and this does just that.

Louis-Vuitton-Pre-Fall-2015-Handbags-2

It’s amazing how quickly Nicolas Ghesquiere has changed the aesthetic at Louis Vuitton. It’s one thing to come in to a globally recognized brand after the decade-and-a-half tenure of a legend like Marc Jacobs and put together your own collection with your own quirks; it’s quite another to do that in a way that the industry buys into whole-heartedly, as it seems to with Ghesquiere’s Vuitton.
