Gucci Baby Carrier

This past weekend I went to my friend’s baby shower, which is the first of many to come in the next few months. I’ve hit that stage in life where many of my friends are pregnant, so I find myself checking out baby bags and accessories often.

Louis Vuitton Store

We’ve been following along with the story of Louis Vuitton’s very publicly shifting accessories strategy very closely, and each time we update you on it, you guys have a lot to say. The story and Vuitton’s attitudes toward its customers bring out a lot of opinions, both for and against the brand’s attempts to shift its focus to a more leather-centric, higher-dollar customer, but we’ve never asked you guys straight-up whether or not the shift has affected your own purchasing behavior.

Mackage Coats

It’s been a long time in the making, but the bag I designed with Mackage will be hitting the runway in the brand’s Spring 2014 Runway show during Toronto Fashion Week this Wednesday. It’s my first personal design venture, and I love the final result and know you will too.

PurseBlog August Purchases

After I posted my Celine reveal, I realized I not only love to share the new bags I buy for myself, but also I love to hear about your purchases. This is one of our favorite parts of the PurseForum, but I want to bring that joy over to PurseBlog.

Dog Purse

Ok, so I’m going to level with you here. It’s Friday, it’s the end of summer, and I just wanted a reason to post the above hilarious picture of a Manhattan woman carrying her Brussels Griffon in what can only be described as a camouflage (on trend!

Proenza Schouler Triange Print Satchel

Humans are creatures of habit. We’re predisposed to find routines, create schedules and return to behaviors over and over again. Even fashion, which encourages newness and exploration, becomes somewhat rote over time. Most fashion people find a uniform for themselves as they spend more and more time thinking about style and what makes them feel like themselves, and at least for now, my uniform is pretty much set – a black (or black and white) maxi dress, silver sandals and my trusty Proenza Schouler PS1.

Designer Handbags for Kids

This is a topic that will easily elicit strong feelings on both sides, but it is a conversation worth having. I got my first designer handbag in 7th grade. I was 13. I had been begging my mom for a Coach bag, and after what felt like years of annoyance, my mom got both me and my sister the purses we desired.

Matches boxes

As we all know, it’s sale season, so perhaps you’ve ventured outside of your retail comfort zone recently to order an item you’ve been pining after from a retailer that you’ve never shopped before. After all, what’s a better reason to try new things that the promise of a steep discount?

MCM Logo Backpacks

Although I can often see the appeal in things I wouldn’t necessarily want to own or wear (being able to step outside of one’s own personal taste is, after all, an important qualification for writing any kind of criticism), my own taste is usually pretty predictable, at least to me.

Bling Ring Closet Raid

When it was first announced that Sofia Coppola would be directing The Bling Ring, which comes out tonight in NYC (the rest of the country will have to wait a week), I nearly jumped for joy. It’s been a couple years since the original story of Alexis Neiers and her crew of celeb-robbing buddies came into the public eye, so naturally I went back and read just about every news article and story on the case I could find.
