It’s Friday, PurseForum Roundup readers, and once again we are looking at some serious weather for lots of you. This week, we want to keep it light and sunny, so we searched out some pretty bags, of course, and so much more. We also have a special Valentine’s Day treat from our Coach members, so join us!
Scarves are great accessories all year long, and for winter, nothing is more luscious than an Hermès cashmere shawl. We have a special thread dedicated to these beautiful shawls, and this week, Israeli_Flava has some gorgeous colorful additions to her collection that certainly drove our winter blues away. The scarves, shawls, and other variations on the theme are a staple of Hermès and favorites among our members. Visit the Which Scarf Are You Wearing Today thread for ideas on styling all the silky offerings from this brand.
While wandering around Hermès, we found a wonderful family photo of bags along with a splendid scarf from pierina2 in the Spring 2014 Scarves thread. Stop in and join in one of the hottest conversations in the subforum, as members spot and snap up the newest scarves of the season.
Over in Balenciaga, richly colored bags abound no matter the season. In winter, these lavishly saturated hues are a special treat. This week, we found a reveal in a color that’s easily wearable in winter but as cheery as a summer day. Congratulations to shayna07 on this beautiful new City Bag in luscious ultraviolet. We also found a thread that perfectly illustrates the amazing work our members do to help one another: Longtime member CeeJay has compiled a thorough comparison of this season’s leather colors with their predecessors, and for Balenciaga fans, this thread is an essential shopping resource. In the Which Bag Are You Wearing Today thread, catch a glimpse of these colorful bags out and about with our stylish members. If you feel like summer is ages away, be sure to catch up with jezebel61113, whose summery tomate City Bag will put you right in the June frame of mind.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Coachs’ super hot leather bags are breaking out all over our Coach subforum. This week, our Coach members reminded us that with Valentine’s Day upon us, a rich red bag may be just the ticket. CharliLuvsCoach selected her vermillion Borough for today, and whateve put together a LOVE-ly purse and scarf combination that will be perfect for the occasion. This thread is full of stunning bags in every shade of pink and red, so if you are looking for inspiration, it’s the place to be! If you are a longtime “Coachie” or just discovering (or perhaps re-discovering) the brand, you will enjoy a stop in the Clubhouse, where dedicated threads cover such things as key fobs and wallets, as well as collections, including the Park Collection, the Signature line, and more. We even have a Men’s Club! Spend some time clicking around in Coach, we always find something wonderful when we do!
Of course, Coach members aren’t the only ones celebrating Valentine’s Day. All over the forum, our members have already started to open their gifts, and they are amazing! In Chanel, BalenciagaPlaneT added a sleek black tote to her collection, and in Louis Vuitton, TeamHutchens stole the show with her definitively non-purse gift (hint: it is awesome and has wheels – two of them). Also in Louis Vuitton, MommieLovesLV shared her sweet gift from Tiffany & Co., a Valentine’s classic. We found another sparkley Valentines gift in Burberry, this time a watch received by the very lucky vinbenphon1. Valentine’s Day was not even in full swing at presstime, so be sure to do your own hunt throughout our forum for more gift reveals!
Roundup Regulars know how much we love The Kitchen, and we thought we would stop in and hunt for some cheery winter treats. We found a splendidly healthy salmon and broccoli dish from ninja_please, and her absolutely show stopping pear and chocolate cake seemed a perfect way to close out this week’s Roundup. Samia’s pretty rose cake with blueberry cupcakes looks like a nice Valentine’s Day treat, too, and may inspire you to create a dessert tonight!
That wraps up this week’s PurseForum Roundup. We wish all of you a safe week, whether you are snowbound or enjoying an early spring. We appreciate you stopping by to spend some time with us and hope you will return each week as we recap a small sample of what is happening on our wonderful forum. See you next Friday!
