When I started PurseBlog over 11 years ago, it was because I absolutely loved bags. I remember how excited I got when I’d get to the mall and go into the Coach store or department store to look at bags.
Boot season is slowly creeping up on us and now is the perfect time to start getting ready for the brisk weather coming our way. Next week, the team will be going on our yearly summer break (don’t worry, we’ll still be delivering great stuff to read!), and I’ve already carved out time to start shopping for some new fall pieces.
Coach is America’s biggest homegrown accessories brand, not to mention arguably the world’s most important contemporary handbag brand, so we always pay attention when there’s a new Coach collection to see. That’s especially true since creative director Stuart Vevers launched Coach 1941, the company’s more fashion-forward and luxurious offshoot, and the Coach 1941 Fall 2016 collection, which just launched on Coach.com, demonstrates exactly why.
In some ways, celebrities live on a different planet than you and I, but in other ways, they’re not that different at all. Most famous people weren’t born famous (or rich), and if they became that way in adulthood, they probably still remember what it was like to be a normal.
The entire Kardashian family loves Hermès bags just about as much as any other celebrities I can think of. While Kim loves her Birkins as much as the next Kardashian, Kris, the matriarch of the family constantly carries Hermès bags; recently we did the math to see how much Kris Jenner’s Hermès collection is worth (hint: over $500,000).
We spend the majority of our time hear talking about handbags, but what goes in them is just as important, and thankfully, some designers put as much care into the design of their wallets and small leather goods as they do into their big-name bags.
Remember when you were freshly 18 and it felt like you could finally go out and do anything? Remember how liberating that felt? Except you couldn’t actually do ANYTHING, because you weren’t a trust fund baby (though some of you maybe were, but just go with me here), so you had to satisfy your need for adventure by smoking a legal cigarette or maybe registering to vote?
The most interesting Real Housewives episodes have some sort of central question, and last night’s was all about the limitations of reality TV alliances. To what extent can you expect your friends and cast mates to fight your battles?
For whatever reason, I’ve been feeling a little bit of fashion fatigue for the past couple seasons, but thankfully, it seems as though the malaise is lifting; everywhere I look, Fall 2016 deliveries are full of stuff I want to have in my closet immediately.
