Fall is fast approaching, and perhaps for that very reason, celebs are getting a little adventurous with their handbag choices. This roundup is pretty evenly split between classic black leather bags from Fendi, Chanel and The Row that could survive any season, as well as bling-tastic selections from Miu Miu, Bulgari and others that are very now.
As you’re probably aware, the Cannes Film Festival is happening right now, and celebs are headed to France with all their best handbags, except for the ones that aren’t. But if you’re an actress with substantial movie industry cred (or a supermodel with absolutely zero) traipsing through LAX this week, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll make an appearance on the red carpet at Cannes.
It’s that time of year again, when celebrities make the grand voyage to New Jersey to attend the Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic and pretend they like or understand polo. I love the pageantry of polo: the food, the champagne, the horses, the outfits, the stomping of the divots and, of course, the handbags.
It’s almost Valentine’s Day, which is always a good excuse to pick up something new. We have been searching eBay once again for bags and accessories to brighten your winter spirits, and we found not one, but two gorgeous orange totes, a stunning bag from Louis Vuitton, some wonderful jewelry from David Yurman and Chanel and so much more.
Here’s Reese Witherspoon, performing random acts of Reese Witherspoon-ness in LA, all while carrying a Bulgari Serpenti Tote. (The name of the bag won’t make any sense unless you look closely at those enameled palladium snake handles and that sneaky little snake-head zip pull.) You can currently find Reese’s exact bag in beautiful black nappa leather for $3,250 at Bulgari.
As you might have noticed, we have our mothers on our minds this week, and in advance of Mother’s Day, we’ve decided to dedicate this week’s Want It Wednesday to the things we’d buy for our moms if our budgets were open-ended.
