Looking through street style photos during Fashion Week is always fun and almost always makes me start doing mental budget math to see if I can maybe, possibly justify the purchase of, say, a giant feather-covered coat this month, but rarely do street style photos stop me in my tracks. Yesterday, while flipping through Phil Oh’s shots for Vogue.com, that’s exactly what happened.
Want It Wednesday(Page 6)
PurseBlog may be a site about designer handbags, but more importantly it is about the woman who loves designer handbags. She lives a certain lifestyle, she loves her jewelry, sunglasses, wallet, and clothing. She may style her outfit around her bag, but she is very aware of everything she is wearing. This woman is me. In fact, she is every handbag lover I know.
While all of us on the PurseBlog team love handbags, we also find ourselves constantly coveting a plethora of other items. We discuss a wide range of topics at the PurseBlog offices, from real estate to fur coats, and this week I can not stop staring at these three products in particular.
Beautiful skin, the perfect body-hugging dress, and a funky notebook are the items I find myself drawn to.
You wouldn’t think the words Chanel and Sport would go together. Leave it to Chanel to make traditional sporty items incredibly chic by adding their luxury touches. While there are countless items in their sports category, it seems that none of these are currently available. I even searched on eBay and had no luck tracking down the amazing yet silly Chanel rugby football.

Typically for Want It Wednesday, I pick one thing that I am coveting greatly. But this week, all I want is Chanel. Chanel everything, from head to toe. From nail polish to makeup to bracelets to gloves to cosmetic cases to bags. This is one of those weeks where I am on a major Chanel kick and if I had it my way, I would pop into their store and buy one of everything.
I’ve been on a Celine kick for quite some time, and just as I thought my obsession begins to subside, I found a bag that makes it flare back up. I’ve gone back and forth trying to decide if I like the Celine Phantom, which is the most recent hit from the brand, and I have finally decided I want it.
It is no secret that both Amanda and I are extreme Proenza Schouler fan-girls. Every time Jack and Lazaro grace us with a new version of the PS1, we swoon. Sometimes a little bit of pizzazz mixed with a lot of classic is just what I crave, and these two bags from Proenza Schouler’s Holiday collection are calling my name.
From vibrant neon yellow suede to an eye-catching orchid pink hue, these two Proenza Schouler PS1 bags are precisely what I want this Wednesday.
It’s hard to find a perfect fur clutch, and we know that because so many well-known designers attempt to tackle fur and have absolutely no luck. This is where designer extraordinaire Oscar de la Renta comes in to soothe our eyes with a clutch that is both oh-so-Oscar and entirely magnificent.
Exclusive for his online store, the Oscar de la Renta Dyed Rabbit Fur Clutch doubles as a muff to keep your hands fashionably warm and your belongings meticulously stored.
Balenciaga Motorcycle Jacket, $2,865 via Barneys
Wednesday has come and almost gone, but the only thing I have on my mind is how much I want this Balenciaga Motorcycle Jacket. I have always known of its existence and have always had a feeling I would like one myself, but this version of the jacket has my heart going boom boom boom.
To only further my love, the Alexander McQueen Cites Chanter Hobo Bag is designed with supple matte python skin which is my favorite way to see the skin used.
