And just like that, it’s April! The PurseForum has been very busy this week, as it always is, and we have searched high and low to bring you the hottest reveals and conversations happening since last we met. For this edition of the PurseForum Roundup, we visited Hermès to see which bags our members have picked up, spent some quality time in our shoe subforum, the Glass Slipper, and caught up with our friends in Home and Garden to see how spring is shaping up for them so far. Grab a beverage, settle into a comfy chair and join us below!
Ahhh, red box leather. Sleek, sexy and absolutely irresistible. This week in Céline, dxs revealed this coral beauty, scored from Jakarta, and also offered up a splendid family photo with her lemon yellow Phantom. Member x0x011 has been patiently waiting since October to work her way up the list for a mini Luggage, and this week, her patience paid off. This is her first Céline, and we offer our hearty congratulations! Belated congratulations are also in order for new mommy yinnie, who shared two Céline goodies along with her priceless bundle of joy earlier this year. If you can’t help but squeeeee at baby toes, you won’t want to miss her thread! New member snickersnack started her very first PurseForum thread this week and shared a beautiful Luggage that has a pretty pop of color inside. We love to welcome new members into the fold, and when the first reveal is as sweet as this, it’s a perfect beginning!
This week in Kate Spade, we found a fabulous family photo courtesy of Love Gun, who hit the jackpot on her trip to Las Vegas. Lizziejean3 also shared a new bag, this time a Little Minka in rich and elegant French grey.
Anyone who has spent any time around the PurseBlog knows how much we love to peer into your handbags. Whether it is Hermès or a chic crocheted crossbody from the craft fair, we are fascinated by what you put in your bag. In Kate Spade, we checked into the WIYB thread and found a few surprises, like this one in LVk8′s tote. We also found a very photogenic Finley bag belonging to eehlers, and had to come back for a second look, and then a third. This looks like a great, versatile, smooshy bag that should definitely be on our wish lists! If you are thinking about a foray into the whimsical world of Kate Spade, be sure to visit the Show Us Your Kate Spade thread for a steady stream of ideas for your next bag, and of course you must visit the Deals Thread for special purchasing opportunities as well.
So there we were, wandering around the Glass Slipper, when we found the Roger Vivier thread at the top of the page. It turns out the sample sale had just begun, and savvy shopper restricter was at the front of the line to score scads of shoes, of course. It looks like shoe superfan Puffy the cat is gobsmacked at the bargains! Yuan0620 was the lucky recipient of a score-by-proxy and showed off a pair of fabulous RVs in one of our favorite colors! And, for something completely different, please drop into the brand new Chic Ways to Wear Birkenstocks thread. Many PurseForum members regularly sport Birkies, Sanitas, Naots, and other comfy but somewhat style-challenged footwear, and this thread just may be the ticket to get you to join us!
You will find plenty more shoe fun in the What Shoes are You Wearing Today thread, a great stop for anyone in the mood to browse fabulous shoes on “real life” feet, though our Glass Slipper ladies are as stylish as any celebrity; check out these, and these and of course these!
Glorious, aren’t they? Our last Roundup visit to Hermès ended up nearly bagless, so we thought we would make up for that deficit this week. Nothing gets a fashionista’s blood racing like an orange box, and this week there were plenty of Big Ones in this luxe subforum. Member Always New LV brand-hopped in a big way this week and scored a regal Birkin in stunning Bleu Ismir. If orange boxes make the blood rush to your head, you will need to sit down for Panthere55′s thread – her first Hermès reveal includes both bags and jewelry!
We were treated to a rare reveal in the Latest Purchases Thread this week, as Hermes Only shared her special order tricolor Kelly, photographed beautifully and appreciated abundantly! Idldb wowed the crowd with an exotic Birkin in a lovely shade of grey, while make_for_money, panthere55 and BinkMartini showed us their wonderful SLGs (small leather goods) that this brand does so spectacularly.
Our last stop this week is the Playground, where, in Home and Garden, we enjoyed a peek into the gardens of some of our members. Luckydogmom started an herb garden in these extremely cool pots, and in the Garden Photographs thread, sweetpea83 treated us to her tomatoes, basil and cilantro, while Limom started spring off swimmingly with a timely shot of her brilliant crocuses. Whether you are looking for a couch, mattress, candles, or help decluttering - or if you are not looking yourself but would like to lend a hand those those who are - this friendly subforum makes great stop during a visit to the PurseForum. Elsewhere in the Playground, we have subforums dedicated to current events, financial matters, careers, and more – including travel, where Italy, London and New York are all hot topics this week!
Well, friends, so ends another PurseForum Roundup. We hope you will visit our forum often and find your own favorite spots among the many ongoing discussions. We will be back again next Friday for another edition, and until then, we hope you are seeing your own signs of spring wherever you are. Have a wonderful weekend and be sure meet us right back here again in a week’s time!
