Want-It-Wednesday-Red-Carpet-Evening-Bags

Last Sunday’s Golden Globes were just the beginning of Hollywood’s awards season, and they left us feeling inspired to take a second look at the world of tiny, sparkly evening bags that online retailers have to offer. The market for clutches has expanded by leaps and bounds over the past few years, with indie brands like Edie Parker, Rauwolf and Lee Savage shaking up the tried-and-true lineup of Roger Vivier and Judith Leiber bags that usually show up at awards shows.

Want-It-Wednesday-Best-New-Bags-Spring-2015

We came back from our winter vacation to websites full of new bags after which to lust. Now that we’ve had a few days to look them over, here are our picks for the newly arrived bags that we’d each love to own.

Holiday Travel Essentials

Members of the PurseBlog team have already started leaving our little New York City nest in pursuit of holiday travel adventures (and I will be joining their ranks tomorrow), so now seemed like a good time to contemplate the best-case scenario for what to carry with us when we fly, drive or train-ride our way to our holiday destinations.

Want It Wednesday Winter Accessories

Yesterday was one of New York’s worst weather days in recent memory (and, truth be told, perhaps in my entire time living in the city), and nothing will make you more acutely aware of your winter gear’s shortcomings that howling wind and bitter cold.

Want It Wednesday Fall 2014 Sales

You’re not the only one out there shopping all the just-launched seasonal sales; we are, too. Below, check out our picks for what we’d love to be bringing home–at a discount–this week.

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.
