It’s time for another round of weekly bag deals, which means it’s also Friday, which means that this is really two pieces of good news wrapped into a single-serving package. Actually, I also have a third piece of good news: lots of online retailers are giving extra discounts or incentives on top of existing sale prices right now, so it’s the time of year where a little bit of digging can pick up the kind of crazy-good sale find that your friends will be mad about for months to come.
No matter how long I cover the accessories industry, it never fails to mystify me what it’s possible to buy with a couple mouse clicks after a few too many glasses of wine. Every season, we survey the most expensive new women’s bags on offer in order to look for trends at the top tier of the market, and that’s just what we’ve done today.
Everyone on the PurseBlog sees a ton of bags every day, so when one sticks with you for a little while, that’s always something to pay attention to. I first spotted The Row Duplex Hobo when scouting out which Resort 2016 bags the Internet’s big retailers already have on offer, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.
Almost, but not quite. It was a busy weekend for celebs, what with Wimbledon, extremely high-profile weddings and a mass celeb exodus from Paris Couture Week. All that celeb news, combined with numerous celeb cheating/divorce rumors that we’re too classy to mention here will indubitably make for some premium tabloid reading tomorrow.
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.
