Over the weekend, the PurseBlog team was scattered around the country – I was in Atlanta, Megs and Vlad were in Ft. Lauderdale, Bea was at Coachella and both Katherine and Shannon were holding down the fort in NYC. Somehow, even in our disparate locations, we all got to enjoy some gloriously sunny, warm weather that only served to remind us that we should probably stock up on some sunglasses for the coming season.
Want It Wednesday
I grew up in the Deep South, in a deeply southern family, so there were a few rules for dressing that were always clear. Among the strictest of standards was the idea that you don’t wear white before Easter, and although that rule (along with its post-Labor Day twin) have long been scuttled, it’s still a strong association in my mind.
We’ve once again reached midweek, and that means it’s time for another round of Want It Wednesday. This week, the members of the PurseBlog team have carefully cataloged our most-wanted accessories, but here’s the catch: we excluded handbags. There are so many other little details that go into a look that we don’t get to talk about all that often around here, so from caps to kaftans, we’re doing it today.
Despite the fact that it snowed last night, the PurseBlog team is determined to think spring. Maybe if we embody the season’s aesthetic hard enough, we’ll force the weather to turn over and stay that way, or at least that’s what we’re telling ourselves. In that spirit, we’ve chosen to pepper this week’s Want It Wednesday with a bevy of pretty, soft colors.
Spring’s official beginning is just a couple days away, and although New York likely won’t feel all that spring-like until sometime in April, we’re feeling a little bit eager to season-push at the PurseBlog offices. For this week’s Want It Wednesday, we’ve rounded up the team’s favorite pieces for starting the new season.
Huddle up, you guys. It’s March. I know that it doesn’t feel like it in about half of the United States, but it is, and we’re going to forge ahead into spring even if the weather has decided that it doesn’t want to join us for a few weeks. That’s why we’ve chose to pick only floral clothes, bags and shoes for this edition of Want It Wednesday – perhaps a sunny outfit can help Mother Nature along a little bit.
At the PurseBlog offices, we are women of diverse interests, but many (most, really) of them have a shopping component. Most fashion people have at least a passing interest in beauty, and that’s definitely true of us. On this Want It Wednesday, we’re here to share the lotions, potions and face spackle that’s been tempting us lately.
Here at the PurseBlog offices, we’re intent on marching forth into spring, even if the weather intends not to cooperate with our sartorial whims until late May. (Please, please let it warm up, or at least stop snowing, before then. For our sanities’ sakes.) In that spirit, today’s edition of Want It Wednesday covers all things animal print; how better to make a season transition?
We already revealed our ultimate Valentine’s Day gifts in last week’s edition of Want It Wednesday (you know, gotta put that stuff out there in time for the universe to reward you), but that doesn’t mean we’re done celebrating the day of love. This week, we’re setting the mood with our favorite red and pink finds from around the web, from pale pink earrings to the deepest red lipstick.
This week, we’ve decided to switch things up for our regular installment of Want It Wednesday. Instead of simply picking some things that have caught our eyes in the past seven days, the entire PurseBlog team has chosen the gifts that we’d really, really like to receive for Valentine’s Day, which will be here in a little over a week.
