Some weeks, the PurseBlog team’s sartorial obsessions are in sync with some sort of theme – a particular color palette, a category of clothing, a material or texture. This week, they’re all over the place, ranging from tough motorcycle jackets to pretty jacquard dresses that just scream to be taken to an upcoming holiday party. Below, check out what our team members are lusting after this week.

Personally, I think that right now is a very exciting time of year to want things. Not only are the stores filled with lots of new things, but fall and winter require so much stuff. Sweaters and shirts for layering, cold-weather accessories, shoes for different types of weather and precipitation, all-leather everything, coats and jackets – the options are just endless, on top of all the handbags and accessories that we generally want.

Because of our National Handbag Day celebrations last week, it’s been two full weeks since we’ve had a good ol’ Want It Wednesday around here. Today, we aim to fix that with everything from skirts that would look great with tights and booties to cheeky, literary-print scarves. Check out everything that the PurseBlog team is craving this week after the jump.

It’s that time of the week again, and for this Want It Wednesday, the PurseBlog team is craving the little odds-n-ends that make fall so magical. From a rich, red wool jacket to a glittering watch and everything in between, we’ve picked eight great things that we’re dying to add to our respective wardrobes this week. (This time, we’ve labeled who wants what so you can shun us accordingly.)

When it comes time for Want It Wednesday, we never discuss a theme – the participating members of the PurseBlog team simply pick some stuff they’d like to own at the moment and send it to me, I add in my own picks, and then I cast the spell and light the cauldron and it becomes a blog post. Usually the stuff doesn’t go together at all, and that’s fine, but today, there are some, uh, similarities.

Working at PurseBlog is pretty great. Not only is there free coffee in the office kitchen, but we basically get to online shop all day in pursuit of the finest shiny things that the Internet has to offer. Often those things are handbags, but in the process, we also bump up against some non-handbag things that we’d really like to max out our credit cards to have.

How, you ask, do we have time to find new Fall 2013 things that we’re craving amid all the Spring 2014 Fashion Week fervor? Easy – we’re professionals. Professional thing-wanters, if nothing else. (Not a bad gig if you can get it.) This week for Want It Wednesday, we’ve managed to sit still long enough to find some stuff we’d like to put on our credit cards rightthisveryminute, and we’d also like to welcome back someone who you guys might remember as Intern Katherine – she’s a full-fledged, college-graduated human now, and a full-time member of the PurseBlog team!

After 10 days of vacation, including this past Monday to celebrate Labor Day, I’m completely disoriented. It’s Wednesday, you say? I’ll take your word for it. You could tell me I was on Mars and I’d probably consider it fact for at least a split second. I’m inclined to believe it’s Wednesday, though, because that means it’s time for our first post-summer Want It Wednesday, and the PurseBlog team is craving some great fall essentials.

I can’t believe another week is more than halfway done. I’m not sure if I’ve been particularly busy this week or the last bits of summer are just slipping away more quickly than I’d like them to, but it seems like this week’s Want It Wednesday has come around at light speed. Below, find out what the PurseBlog team is craving today.

You guys, it’s August 14. Halfway through August. How did that happen? It seems like between all the complaining about sweat and sunburns and our inability to find the perfect straw bag, summer has just up and left us. It was 60 degrees this morning! Not that I’m complaining about that last part, of course, but I’m not sure that I’m psychologically prepared for the passing of another season.
