The Many Bags of Jaime King

We recently spotted Jaime King carrying a Dior bag that we think is about to become quite popular, and that sparked our curiosity: what else does the model-turned-actress have in her handbag stash? As it turns out, the answer to that question is quite varied.

The Many Bags of Supermodels

[Editor's Note: This week, the PurseBlog staff is out of the office to enjoy the last little bit of summer. We'll return after Labor Day, but in the meantime, we'll be running both new posts and a few of our favorites from the past few months to get you ready for fall.]

Models and great handbags go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Karlie Kloss Jason Wu Jourdan Tote

Here’s supermodel Karlie Kloss, running errands in NYC and doing a quick pop-in at Taylor Swift’s Tribeca apartment, all while carrying a black Jason Wu Jourdan Tote. Karlie is among Wu’s favorite models, so it’s no surprise to see her toting one of the designer’s most popular bags.

Jason Wu Daphne

Most people think that when we go to Fashion Week, we’re mainly looking at the clothes going down the runway. In reality, Fashion Week has become just as much about what people outside of the shows wear and carry as what’s going on inside, and I love seeing all the bags on display.

Bag Deals February 28

On this, the last day of February (where’d this month go?), we have our last February edition of our weekly bag deals roundup. We’re in between sale periods, so we searched extra hard to come up with the best handbag discounts, and we think you’ll be pleased with the fruits of our labors.

Best Bags of New York Fashion Week Fall 2014

Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone, and as we prepare for the Fall 2014 collections cross the Atlantic to roll through Europe for the next three weeks, it’s important to take stock of what happened in Manhattan and what it tells us about where our accessories dollars are headed in the second half of the year.

Diane Kruger Jason Wu Daphne 2 Satchel

Diane Kruger was recently spotted doing a little shopping in West Hollywood with the Jason Wu Daphne 2 Snakeskin Satchel. From a distance, that snakeskin pattern looks like a fine tweed, but it is in fact a most unusual spotted, black and white “watersnake” skin, which is a much less expensive alternative to python, and the pricepoint of this bag would certainly indicate as much.

Bag Deals January 24

As January draws to a close, so does the traditional luxury sale season, but that won’t stop us from scouring the Internet each Friday for our weekly dose of bag deals. This week, we searched the best sales that are still ongoing and found some treasures, from calf hair, to exotics, to the perfect Marchesa spring wedding clutch for 60% off.

Jaime King carries a black Jason Wu tote in California (5)

Actress Jaime King was recently spotted strolling around in Beverly Hills carrying an eye-catching Jason Wu Jourdan 2 Tote. It’s a new, ever-so-slightly reinvented version of Wu’s original Jourdan Tote, and it looks particularly nice in this polished leather. You can snatch up a tote just like the one seen here on Jaime’s arm for $1,895 at Nordstrom.

Want It Wednesday October 16

Because of our National Handbag Day celebrations last week, it’s been two full weeks since we’ve had a good ol’ Want It Wednesday around here. Today, we aim to fix that with everything from skirts that would look great with tights and booties to cheeky, literary-print scarves.
