You never know how your circumstances are going to change your perspective. When I lived in Atlanta, I hated bags with extra shoulder straps because their necessity didn’t make sense in my car-centric life, and without an appreciation for their functionality, they just looked like clutter to me.

I’m not really haunted by much (maybe just the idea of a super large spider or taking a really bad fall), but I do find myself constantly thinking about certain bags that got away. This clearly is a topic that comes up a bit here at PurseBlog; we have covered it twice (here and here) in the past, and before I wrote this post today, I asked members of the PurseForum this very question.

Bag-Trends

Winter is starting to ease up in New York City, and it has me looking at everything in my apartment (and especially in my closet) with a critical eye, as it usually does–“spring cleaning” is a real thing.

Change is afoot. Designers, brands and retailers have been trying to figure a way to recalibrate Fashion Week in the age of digital media since before I arrived in New York to work in the industry five years ago, and brands are finally starting to put their money where their mouths are in hopes of alchemizing the press circus around fashion shows into real, tangible sales.

Handbag Stains

Not long ago, I was carrying my white Proenza Schouler PS1 and my friend remarked how clean and stain-free it is. Fast forward two days later and I checked the back of the PS1 to find pretty noticeable color transfer, most likely from a dark pair of jeans I was wearing during that very same conversation with my friend; the bag now looked dirty and gross.

Louis-Vuitton-Ombre-Crocodile-Capucines-Bag

A couple months ago, we brought you news of Louis Vuitton’s most expensive women’s bag ever, but the brand has already eclipsed itself handily. An ombre crocodile version of the popular Louis Vuitton Capucines Bag will now set you back a cool $60,500, easily beating the $55,500 City Steamer.

Moschino-Shop-Sign-Bag

I am, in general, in favor of fun. Pro-fun, if you will. I like ice cream and puppies and most things that are generally considered fun. I do well at parties. What I’m getting bored with, though, is fun fashion.

Fendi-Croc-Embossed-3Jours-Bag

I’ve already detailed the gifts I’d love to be receiving for Christmas (and my birthday!) this year, but there’s always one more you forgot about, isn’t there? For me, that’s the Fendi 3Jours Croc-Embossed Calf Hair Bag; the texture on the front is just way too cool.

Online-Shopping-Preferences

Thanksgiving and the week following are a frenetic time to be interested in fashion. Most retailers only put the really good bags on sale twice a year, and everyone knows when to expect the fall sales because they’re so clearly marked by a holiday.

Thanksgiving Bags 2011

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the US, and although we know that PurseBlog readers hail from near and far, giving thanks and being grateful seems like something we can all agree on, even without a specific holiday.
