Bag-Deals-December-19

The holidays will be here before we know it, and now is the perfect time to grab a last minute gift or two, like a great clutch or pouch (Olympia Le-Tan and 3.1 Phillip Lim, we are looking at you).

Beas Holiday Wishlist

If you asked anyone in the PurseBlog offices how to describe my personal style, I’d bet money that one of the first three words they’d use is “minimal.” When it comes to clothing and accessories, I like clean lines and neutral tones, and I’m a sucker for a good structured bag.

Louboutin-Polish_7

Christian Louboutin‘s red sole is iconic. While most luxury shoppers can recognize this distinct shade of red a mile away, the color actually started with nail polish, and now it’s become a polish once again.

One of the best things about working at PurseBlog is getting to bounce ideas, stories and opinions off of my coworkers on a daily basis. We’re a tight-knit group, and we all have very distinctive tastes and viewpoints on fashion, style and shopping.

Christmas Card

December! Let’s get right to our first PurseForum Roundup of this month. Now that Thanksgiving is over, we can finally take the tPf Christmas decorations out of storage. We dropped into Relationships and Family because this is a busy time of year for “issues,” and we also buzzed into a few designer forums to find some terrific reveals.

Christian Louboutin Front Double 120 Patent Leopard 50s

When our friends over at Christian Louboutin sent us some photos of not-yet-availble styles from the upcoming Spring 2015 collection, it felt as if we’d been invited to a exclusive party; now we’re extending the invitation to all of you. Many designers choose ladylike silhouettes and the ubiquitous floral print for spring, but Louboutin stays true to his sexy aesthetic with this very alluring collection.

Chanel Flap Lock

Happy Halloween! Happy Friday! This week, Coach the Jewelry Box were on our itinerary as we made our way around the forum. We also found some honest and interesting conversations about quality in Christian Louboutin, as well as reveals in Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

What’s the next best thing to buying a new bag? Being able to ogle someone else’s new purchase or collection, and Instagram is just the place. While the majority of the world can only dream of one day owning an Hermès bag, @hermeslover777 has more orange boxes than some of the actual stores.

NYFW Instagrams

As New York Fashion Week comes to a close, we couldn’t help but roundup some of the best bags we found on our Instagram feed this week, including some finds on the arms of our favorite bloggers, stylists and magazine editors.

Louis Vuitton Icon and Iconoclasts Collection

The Louis Vuitton Icon and Iconoclasts Collection turned a lot of heads when it was announced, mostly because of the perennially bold-faced names from the worlds of fashion and design that had signed on to participate. Louis Vuitton tasked fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Rei Kawakubo, as well as architect Frank Gehry, photographer Cindy Sherman and industrial designer Mark Newson with creating artful fashion pieces using the brand’s signature monogram print, and now we know what each of them did with the challenge.
