Mini bags are most often associated with warm weather; after all, who doesn’t want her hands free during the season’s outdoor activities? They’re just as useful during the fall, though, especially when coat weather comes around and regular shoulder bags compete with your outerwear for shoulder real estate. Now that basically every popular bag comes in a mini size, along with all the bags that were designed to be mini from the beginning, your choices are vast no matter the season. For this edition of Want It Wednesday, the team has enumerated its favorites below. (more…)

Not only is grey one of my very favorite colors (it totally qualifies as a color, okay?), but it’s perfect in a transition because it comes in so many seasonless variations. Since we continue to barrel through August at an alarming rate, it’s now time to think about making those transitions, and we’ve got a few suggestions in this week’s edition of Want It Wednesday.

Because prints always have more than one color, they make uncommonly good choices to make a seasonal transition a little more seamless. Below, check out which printed pieces the PurseBlog team wants to be wearing for fall and beyond in this week’s edition of Want It Wednesday. (more…)

As much as we all love fashion, it’s not the only thing we love. Reading, photography, home decor – our interests are as diverse as anyone’s, and we like to online shop for all of it. For instance, I’m moving into a new apartment in a few weeks, so you can bet that I’m as passionate about decorating as I am about accessories right now. Below, check out all the non-fashion items that the PurseBlog team is craving right now in this week’s edition of Want It Wednesday. (more…)

There’s still plenty of summer left (or that’s what we keep telling ourselves as July inches ever nearer to its end), but our favorite online retailers are beckoning us to start planning for fall, and we’re inclined to oblige them. That includes the handbags and accessories that we feature every day, but it also includes beauty products. For this Want It Wednesday, we’re sharing some of the cosmetic purchases we’re looking forward to in the new season.

We love all handbags great and small, but when it comes to functionality, it’s hard to beat a good, sturdy tote bag. They are both the literal and figurative catch-alls of the purse world; they hold your laptop, your gym clothes, your files from work, all of the stuff you need but don’t really want to carry. They also provide a great foundation for a designer’s line, striking that perfect balance between fashion and function. For this week’s Want It Wednesday, we’ve assembled a list of simple totes that the PurseBlog team adores.

Even though we’re only halfway through summer, stores everywhere are starting to fill up with the first vestiges of fall – knits, leather, suede, dark colors. We’ve tried to put these pieces as far from our minds as possible, but it’s just not possible any longer. For this edition of Want It Wednesday, check out the first fall pieces that the members of the PurseBlog team are starting to fall for.

This weekend, the PurseBlog team will be scattered around the city (and the globe) to celebrate America’s Independence Day. Since we’re all heading to varied locales and activities, we’ve assembled the things we all want for each of our jaunts, which range from a relaxing weekend with friends in the city to a globetrotting trek to Nicaragua.

Summer is in full swing, and that means that almost all of us will be setting off for some kind of adventure over the coming weeks, even if it’s only a day at the closest beach. Packing well is the key to enjoying any kind of summer jaunt, so on this Want It Wednesday, we’ve gathered up the PurseBlog team’s travel wish list for starting a trip on a comfortable, well-organized foot.

Shopping for bathing suits in stores is notoriously disheartening, but as with all things, the Internet has a solution: choose a couple you like, order a couple of sizes, try them all on in the comfort of your own home and send back what you don’t want! In that spirit, we’ve used this edition of Want It Wednesday to choose our favorite bathing suit options from around the web. (more…)
