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…)

Last week, we thought our Want It Wednesday sale picks were sufficient – after all, a ton of sales had sprung up over Memorial Day weekend! Then we got to Thursday, and suddenly we had double the sales to choose from, so this week, we’re back for a second round. (more…)

This past holiday weekend brought sale season with it, and during our three days off, the PurseBlog team spent plenty of time perusing and plotting our potential discount purchases. Below, check out some of our favorite potential new acquisitions – if they don’t sell out first. (more…)

I thought we had at least one more week before Memorial Day, but apparently not. Summer is here in all its glory this weekend, and for several members of our team, that means it’s time for a three-day sojourn to the beach. I’ll simply be headed to Prospect Park on Monday, but my needs will be largely similar to the beach-goers among us: comfy summer clothes, sun protection and something to carry it all in. Check out our pre-Memorial Day Want It Wednesday essentials below! (more…)
