You might not able to guess which bag Cindy Crawford has been carrying for seven years. It’s not Chanel, or Chloé, or any handbag brand that’s repeatedly demonstrated a decade’s worth of staying power, though it is a brand that is legendary in its own way, despite not being especially well-known for its handbags.


In just one week it will be the beginning of the biggest shopping season of the year (and the single most important day in American retail, but, like, no pressure), but now, things are a bit quiet on the shopping front.


The rich textures that make up a cold-weather wardrobe are undeniably more luxurious than the thin textiles and woven straws of the summer months, but anything that luxe comes with a price. Because we believe in looking for good values even when shopping high-end things, we’re big fans of shearling, and this winter’s crop of bags is full of it.

You’re probably thinking about Halloween parties and whether or not you have enough candy for trick-or-treaters at the moment, but as always, we’re here to bring your attention back to bags, at least for a little while.


We’ve reached the end of another work week, and because we here at the PurseBlog offices are firmly in favor of any excuse to treat ourselves, that means we’re here to provide our customary Friday morning roundup of the best designer bag markdowns we found floating around the Internet.

As is customary, we’re starting this one off with the 15 best marked-down designer bags on the Internet, and all are available for your shopping pleasure below.


It looks like the Prada Inside Bag is primed to be a popular celeb choice for Fall 2015. It’s only recently been made available to Prada’s loyal following, both celeb and mere mortal, but I expect we’ll be seeing a fair bit of it from now through September.
