Several months ago, we brought you news of Fendi’s Resort 2016 strap line, and if you missed it, it’s more or less exactly what it sounds like: statement-making handbag straps, many embellished or finished with exotic leathers, that customers can add to their existing bags for around $1,000.
Today we hosted our first-ever live Q & A on PurseBlog. We are going to make this a reccurring thing we do because so many of you participated, so thank you for coming by with your questions!
I was talking with a friend last night about when she used to be a personal shopper and bought a bunch of bags for people in the “it bag” heyday. Those days have left us now, and the most recent bag or designer that could be considered anything close to an “it bag” is Mansur Gavriel.
Things have changed dramatically for Marc Jacobs over the past two years. In 2014, Jacobs ended his decade-plus tenure at the helm of the world’s most valuable luxury brand, Louis Vuitton, and earlier this year, the company announced it would be folding its lucrative, lower-priced offshoot, Marc by Marc Jacobs, into the regular collection.
I’ve been aware of the existence of handbag organizers basically as long as I’ve been aware of handbags.

We’ve asked you a lot of questions lately (and I want you to ask us questions too–don’t forget to email us if you have a question you’d like answered!). This week, I was thinking about some of my favorite bags and shoes.
Happy July, Roundup Readers! We hope this finds you all well and happy. We know itʻs plenty hot where some of you are, and we’re so glad you stopped by to cool off with us. This week we visited Bottega Veneta for some wonderful pops of color.
Now that Pre-Fall 2015 pre-orders are starting to arrive and Fall 2015 pre-orders are starting to become available, I bet that many of you have some shopping lists in your heads. Everyone at the PurseBlog offices definitely does–we’ve all been chattering about our favorite new arrivals all week, and we bet we’re not the only ones.
Two years ago, I asked you all what you thought of designer bags for children. You shared a wide array of comments, and the resounding theme in the responses was that you should get a designer bag for a kid when they are able to appreciate it.
