Want It Wednesday Black Friday

Around the office, we’re all preparing for Thanksgiving tomorrow (I did a biscuit recipe dry run last night and I’m still halfway in a carb coma), but our minds aren’t too far from Black Friday. We’ll have full coverage of all the best deals, sales and markdowns on the big day, but right now, all we can do is hope that the things we’d really love to have end up in someone’s sale section.

Want It Wednesday Winter Coats

If you’re joining us from most of the continental US, you may have noticed something yesterday: oh my gosh it is so cold outside. It’s starkly freezing today too, and these days are only going to become more frequent over the next few months.

Want It Wednesday Jewelry

Winter is the perfect time to advance your jewelry game. Not only do metals create wonderful textural contrast with cold weather’s knits, leathers and denims, but if your skin is sensitive, wearing jewelry in the winter is less risk–you don’t sweat as much.

Want It Wednesday Fur

Fall and winter are a time for rich textures, and it doesn’t get much richer than fur, whether it’s real or faux. For this Want It Wednesday, we’ve picked our favorite fuzzy pieces on the market right now, all of which we wish we had in our own closets for the months ahead.

Want It Wednesday Sweaters

We’re still getting a warm afternoon here and there in NYC, but pretty soon those are going to be gone. As it is, sweater weather has arguably already arrived, as it certainly has for many of you, and nubby knits and comfy sweats are primary on our shopping lists.

Want It Wednesday Small Leather Goods

As most of you know, the interests of the PurseBlog staff extend well beyond handbags, even when we’re still talking about the accessories realm. In this week’s edition of Want It Wednesday, we’re looking at all the bits, bobs, wallets and leather goodies we’d love to load into our handbags (and onto ourselves) now that fall has arrived.

Want It Wednesday Fall Beauty Picks

We’ve been thinking about, talking about and obsessing over bags even more than usual lately, so for this week’s edition of Want It Wednesday, we thought it’d be nice to go in a slightly different direction: beauty. Fall beauty, to be exact, which is full of moisturizer, vampy eye makeup and richly colored lipstick.

Want It Wednesday Old Favorites

Normally we’d be using this spot to explore items of all kinds that are on our shopping lists, but because National Handbag Day is quickly approaching, we thought we’d do something a little different for Want It Wednesday. Every member of the PurseBlog team has his or her own personal style, and our real-life closets are a testament to what it takes for a bag to make it off of our perpetual wish lists.

Want It Wednesday Olive Stuffs and Things

We’re still in the foundational phase of fall wardrobe-building, and that includes finding wear-anywhere pieces in colors that aren’t neutrals, exactly, but that function as such while still providing a little bit of visual variation to an outfit. Burgundy is a great example of one such color, and today, we’re turning our attentions (and our Want It Wednesday) to olive.

Want It Wednesday Calf Hair

After a sabbatical to allow for vacation and New York Fashion Week, Want It Wednesday makes its triumphant return to Wednesday afternoon with tons of my favorite fall texture: calf hair. Bags, shoes, even clothes–calf hair lends itself to both vibrancy and richness, which gives the colors and prints that are used with it a depth that few other materials can attain.
