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(Page 2)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
