Happy Day After the First Day of Spring! It has been a busy week on the PurseForum, and we found some beautiful Spring Bling for you! We also paid a visit to The Playground for some non-fashion conversations, and found some wonderful surprises in Dior. Check out what else we dug up this week, we are thrilled to have you along on this edition of the PurseForum Roundup.
In Mulberry this week, the buzz is all about news of the resignation of CEO Bruno Guillon and what the future of the company will be without this controversial chief at the helm. Fans of the brand will definitely be watching to see what the future holds, particularly in pricing, in the months ahead. Members are also revealing their purchases, of course – right off the bat, we saw that Mary79 managed to bag an Alexa in leopard. Xbabe82517 caught our attention with our two favorite words – Instant Reveal – and showed off another Mulberry “exotic” Alexa, this time the croc-embossed version in classic Oak. We all know that good things come in small packages, and Ser proved the point with her heart key fob. Also, be sure to check in her thread to see what she got to go with it! And, much to the delight of her Mulberry family, KellyS27′s repair tale finally got its happy ending – this beautiful wallet, a real stunner in gorgeous goatskin.
In the Jewelry Box this week, the hot topic was Machick333′s engagement ring upgrade. This ongoing project has been undertaken with the help of the incredibly knowledgeable ladies of the Jewelry Box, and the new stone is a knockout. Jewelry fans are weighing in on the setting choices, and we are all enjoying the process and can’t wait to see Machick333′s new ring when it is finally revealed.
The Jade Thread continues to be, hands down, the busiest thread in the Jewelry Box, with more bangles and special collectors’ pieces popping up every day. Be sure to check out berniechocolate’s new bangle, as well as these stunning old crater disks that are destined to become earrings.
Our last stop in the Jewelry Box was the extremely popular Layering and Stacking thread, where we love seeing the creative combinations our members put together, like this grouping from jenna_foo. Whatever your budget, this thread will give you lots of ideas for putting together a stack of your own, we promise!
The Playground, the home of the PurseForum’s non-fashion threads, provided some interesting reading this week. The always-supportive Cleaning Out the Closet Thread in Money Talks particularly resonated, because this task so often requires much more than just time and boxes. Sometimes a support team makes all the difference, and you will find a good one here if you find yourself a little bit stuck when it comes to getting rid of things. The week also saw the start of a brand new thread on all things Real Estate.
In Up To The Minute, of course we are all sharing and hanging on to every bit of information about the missing Malaysian Airlines flight, and our prayers and thoughts go out to all who are awaiting news. PurseForum members from around the world check into this busy subforum each day to share their thoughts on this and many other current topics.
Sometimes pondering things you never pondered before breaks up the day nicely, and General Discussion has plenty of material to do just that. This week, we joined those who are considering the question, Are Nice Pens Passé? Apparently, they are not, which, frankly, we found oddly comforting. Dooneybaby shared her collection and settled the matter for all of us!
Aren’t they fabulous!? Roundup readers know we love reveals, but we also love when members want opinions. We love to give ours (though actually being asked for them isn’t even required). In Dior we found ThisVNChick on the hunt for a new bag and in need of advice. What do you think – true red or turquoise? It’s not too late to weigh in. (Our choice: True Red). Be sure to catch the rest of ThisVNChick’s collection right here.
Scarlett shared a double reveal this week, and DiorifficLady shared her incredible shoes and bag, along with a peek at her invitation to the Dior show in Paris -this thread is not to be missed, we promise. If you need more Dior in your life, be sure to visit the Diors in Action thread to see more!
We wrapped up our visit with a stop in Coach, to see what spring colors are popping up in our members’ collections this week. We found a nice saffiano Riley in a subtle shade of mint from munchkin_cat, and a crisp parchment Phoebe shared by grannytoabbi. AllyKat723 exchanged sea mist for mulberry and revealed her new Preston, and the color is scrumptious and perfect indeed. ”Pretty and Pebbled” certainly perfectly describes iluvcoach’s new Bleeker crossbody, and we love the three zip compartments and pricepoint of this bag just as much as the color palette.
If you happen to be one of those people who’s on the fence about purple, stop by this thread and check out designer1′s new bag, one of the nicest versions of eggplant we have seen – just the right amount of pop makes this a great but fun neutral color. This drawstring tote looks fun and versatile, and the lovely color works perfectly with this bag’s style. This is just the tip of the iceberg in Coach this week, so do drop by and see more of what our members are up to.
Thank you for visiting us on this first Friday of Spring! We hope the weekend brings you warm breezes and spring blossoms, and we look forward to bringing you more from the PurseForum right her in a week’s time. Have a great weekend!
