It’s that time of week again – Want It Wednesday! With New York’s sweltering heat wave showing no signs of letting up, Bea, Shannon and I are still lusting after summer essentials that have somehow yet to make their way inside our apartments. This week, that means a Gucci bag, Ray-Ban sunglasses and Oribe hair products.

Perhaps it’s because last week was so short (or because last weekend was so long), but personally, I’m still trying to figure out what day it is. Yesterday felt like Wednesday to me, but in reality, that’s today. Thankfully, I took note of that in time for Want It Wednesday, the PurseBlog team’s weekly roundup of the things we’re coveting, lusting after and sending each other links to via GChat.
I like today. First of all, I like today because it’s the last day of work before I get a four-day weekend, but I also like today because we get to have all our Wednesday fun AND our Friday fun, all in the same eight-hour span. First up was our Bag Deals roundup, and now comes Want It Wednesday, wherein the PurseBlog staff provides a rundown of all the things we’re trying to restrain ourselves from buying this week, both handbag-related and not.
You’ve done it! You’ve made it through the majority of the week! (Hey, it’s Wednesday afternoon, that totally counts.) (At least on the East Coast.) By now, you’ve probably spotted something on this here Internet that’s making your credit card cower in fear, and we know that we certainly have. That’s why we reserve Want It Wednesday for exactly this time of week – the beautiful things from Gianvito Rossi, Mara Hoffman and Erickson Beamon that we’re craving give us the courage to press through and continue to do things that earn our paychecks.
If you’ve been visiting PurseBlog for a while, you probably remember Want It Wednesday, which was a short weekly roundup of what some of the PurseBlog team is lusting after on any particular Wednesday. Because we’re ladies with long shopping lists and nearly endless desires to discuss them with each other (and with you), we’ve decided to bring back this wishful-thinking feature.
A few seasons ago, Valentino was synonymous with bows, but that all took a change when the brand introduced its Rockstud collection; now the brand that signifies femininity and elegance also provides just the right amount of edge. I’m the definition of a Valentino Rockstud girl because I turn to well-made items but also like a little spunk, and since the inception, this line has spoken to me.
Christian Louboutin has been working hard to bring the awareness of its handbag collections up to par with its world-famous shoes, and the line is well on its way. The brand has transitioned well, bringing Louboutin’s signature irreverence to all of its accessories, and as a result, the brand’s handbag following continues to grow. I love a red-soled shoe, but I’ve been finding myself loving Louboutin’s bags lately as well.
I have a confession: I’ve never owned a Tod’s bag. Don’t get me wrong, the brand makes some absolutely beautiful bags, but I’ve always been more drawn to its shoes, namely the iconic driving loafers. With occasional exception, the bags usually don’t speak to me – that is, until now. I am positively obsessed with this bag, in every way possible.
It’s been a while since we’ve put up a Want It Wednesday post, and it’s also been a while since I’ve really wanted a Michael Kors bag. Don’t get me wrong, Kors’ bags are highly wearable and I can barely make it down a block in New York City without seeing one on someone’s arm, but some of the bags simply don’t speak to me.
Hello Summer! We are hiding inside today, with the AC on full blast and the shades down to keep the sweltering heat from entering PurseBlog headquarters. But no matter how hot it is, we always have our minds on the next thing we want to add to our collections. From the coveted Rebecca Minkoff Becky Jacket to a long statement necklace to a great summer cover-up, the PurseBlog team has a new list of things we want this Wednesday.
