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.


Even though not every runway trend makes it to real life (thank goodness), we noticed one from the recently completed Spring 2016 shows that’s as close to a sure thing as it gets: tailored flap shoulder bags of all kinds.


We’ve arrived at yet another Friday, which means it’s time to see what the best of the Internet’s handbag sale sections have in store for us. Today, we’ve found especially nice sale bags from Gucci, Alexander Wang and Ralph Lauren, plus a bunch of other sought-after designers.


I’m currently sitting in the PurseBlog office in a backless tank top and a pair of Nikes, but I haven’t always worked in fashion, so I’m well aware that most women don’t get the same latitude when it comes to what they wear (and carry) to work.


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.


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.

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: The Row excels at making simple, beautiful, functional products that feel innately luxurious. This simple shoulder bag embodies those qualities.


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.


Stars: They’re just like us! Sort of. While the average bag lover might not receive the next bag of her dreams as a gift from a designer, we all act more or less the same way once we get it in our hot little hands.


Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the bucket bag is a bonafide thing, and it’s not going anywhere soon. Although the simple, casual bags have their detractors, Mansur Gavriel’s ultra-minimal, perpetually sold-out spin on the shape helped usher them back to popularity among fashion people.
