Welcome to April’s first Roundup. We finish off this busy week with an interesting collection of threads and conversations. We found have a new home under construction, lots of “charming” reveals in Hèrmes and the glory of springtime. Come on in and see what else we found for you this week!
It’s time to go shoe shopping! What better place to get inspired than the Newest Shoe Purchases thread in the Glass Slipper? Melikey shered her new and very cute Chanel espadrilles, and jeninvan looks ready for spring in her pretty pink Casadei heels. LeeLee1098 took our breath away with her Valentino stud heels. The Glass Slipper is definitely a must if you are planning a your upcoming shoe purchases, we recommend the Shoe of the Day thread as a great starting point. Happy Shopping!
Over in Home and Garden AlovesJ is building a beautiful new home, and home constructions fans will be happy to know it is well underway. The must-see kitchen island, it is just glorious. In the Newest Decor Items thread michie posted a really fun idea for street numbers that is completely do-able for even the least crafty fashionista. And, do you remember st. love’s closet project from the March 22 Roundup? We are happy to see that it is all finished and looking gorgeous!
Last week we featured some charms from Juicy Couture, and this week we thought we would explore the whimsical world of Hermès Charms. Hermès has a different take on the charm, of course, and most feature the brands hallmark colorful leathers in fanciful animal shapes. There are some great collections in this thread; we particularly enjoyed nakedmosher2of3′s colorful animal group and fell in love with the serpent. Prettychic’s equestrian themed collection is just amazing, and l.a_girl19′s first charm is a perfect pairing with her gorgeous Evelyne. It’s hard to stop at just one charm, so remember, you have been warned!
The online shopper’s dilemma: How much will that bag ACTUALLY hold? Fortunately, our PurseForum members happily answer that question for us every day. This week, PurseForum member drati impressed us with the contents of her Proenza Schouler PS1 pouch! These helpful threads and photos are scattered throughout the PurseForum and are informative little treasures. Here’s a small sampling— laura81′s Mulberry Lily and cobaltblue’s Alexa; contents of the Coach Candace and Molly, courtesy of emilybrooke and zzombiekitty; and what fits in the Balanciaga’s Part Time; courtesy of blackgoldcaviar and City thanks to jen123. This is just the tip of the iceberg, so have fun exploring!
Because the PurseForum now comprises so much more than fashion, the fun of exploring never goes unrewarded. This week, we poked our heads into General Discussion, which includes everything but the kitchen sink (because that is found in Home and Garden). In the Chatterbox’s What Caught Your Attention Thread, waning cherry blossoms in shinymagpie’s beautiful photograph definitely caught ours. This thread is always interesting, but the beautiful photographs this week were a real treat. Be sure to see the rest of shineymigpie’s pictures here. And afterwards, you can drop in here and share your current mood!
We hope the week ahead is full of fun, fashion, and great spring weather!
