The first few big bags for fall are starting to emerge, and a few of the big summer bags may have the longevity to make it until next summer. Only time (and the longevity of any given A-list celeb’s endorsement) will tell.


Today, we’re excited to announce our participation in a very important cause. Megs and PurseBlog are part of the 2015 AllState Foundation Purple Purse PURSEonal Voices network, which means we’re one of a handful of sites supporting the campaign’s efforts to spread awareness and assist victims of domestic violence and financial abuse.


There are two clear winners of this round-up: Fendi and Louis Vuitton. And, interestingly enough, almost every Louis Vuitton bag represented here is one of the brand’s classic logo designs instead of the newer, more subtle styles.


Our metaphorical cup runneth over with celebrity handbags. We’re still sorting through pics from the hours preceding the Met Ball, and people’s pre-Ball handbags were sometimes more interesting than what they wore later that evening. And yes, you’re right, the Met Ball was last week, but there was so much to look at that we thought a tour through the pre-party looks we missed might be in order, plus some top-notch celebrity looks from the past few days.


You’ve likely seen plenty of coverage of the dresses stars wore on the red carpet at last night’s Chine-themed Met Ball, but now, we’re here to do what we do best: look at bags. Sometimes formal events don’t yield a great selection of accessories, but last night’s clutch choices could scarcely have been better.


Saint Laurent’s Sac de Jour has quietly-yet-deliberately infiltrated the hearts and minds of celebrities over the past year. It’s not that the bag itself is remarkable; it’s really not, which may be part of the appeal.


The 2015 Golden Globes took place last night, and that means that awards season has officially begun. As we do every year, we’ll be scoping out all the best handbags from the industry’s fanciest red carpets.

Kerry Washington Prada Face Mural Shoulder Bag

Here’s Kerry Washington, attending a private party in LA with a Prada Face Mural Shoulder Bag, which was one of the most eye-catching pieces from the brand’s Spring 2014 collection. The line has long since sold out, but it was so popular that Prada is doing some more girl clutches and things for the upcoming season, like this close-up version: the Napa Zip Girl Clutch, which is currently available at Bergdorf Goodman for $1,195.

Olivia Pope Scandal Handbags

If you’re one of the zillions of Scandal fans out there, you already know that our one true hero, Olivia Pope, returns to television after a too-long holiday hiatus in a little over 24 hours.

The Many Bags of The 2013 Emmy Awards

Sunday’s 2013 Emmy Awards were weird, but don’t let that discourage you from diving deep into the attendees’ particularly fabulous handbags from the pre-show red carpet. Often, awards shows are a tough place for bags – traditionally, many stars choose to do photos without their bags in tow, which puts a damper on our fun almost as much as floor-length gowns bum out shoe-lovers.
