Happy New Year! 2014 flew by, didn’t it? We want to wish you all the best for 2015 and kick it off with some nice bags and conversations from the PurseForum. We found some pretty reveals, and paid a visit to the Home and Garden subforum to see what our members have been up to. Thanks for joining us!

Hermes-CDC-Cuff-and-Valentino-Rockstud-Boots

If you are thinking about kicking off the new year with a new pair of classic black pumps, drop into the Glass Slipper and see what our Perfect Black Pump thread has in store. Also in the Glass Slipper, the Valentino Shoe Clubhouse thread got a bump, and rdgldy’s new boots and tonkamama’s collection were part of the reason why. There are plenty more beautiful shoe collections in this thread, so if you are feeling shoesy, pay them a visit.

Pug-and-Mulberry-Bag

In Mulberry, arnoldscigar had quite a reveal to share! Four wonderful Mulberry items made their debut in the thread, not the least of which was a fabulous Tessie in an unusual combination. EFRJENKING1987 also revealed a new bag this week, a classic Suffolk in a gorgeous glowing honey-brown that certainly looks to be pug-approved. SpethyLA has a nice reveal, too, this time with a bit of a dilemma attached.

Louis-Vuitton-and-Chanel-Bags

We found a surprise when we stopped by clu13’s instant reveal in Chanel this week. Brought to us straight from the shores of Saint Barth, this tropical reveal sure got us in the mood for some warm weather!

Chanel-Wallet-On-Chain-Bag

It turns out New Year’s is a great reason to buy a new bag, and Tina_Bina picked out a beauty and wasted no time sharing with her PurseForum friends. Also in Chanel, R_tiff2326 shared a beautiful selection of gifts that you will not want to miss. Sararachelle ended 2014 on a definite high note with her beautiful jumbo single flap, proving once again that pre-loved bags can be every bit as wonderful as brand new–sometimes even more so.

Bottega-Veneta-Messenger-Bag

Fatcat2523 added a first Bottega Veneta to an already incredible collection of bags, and Roundup regulars know that these deep blues are a real favorite for us. YYC also brought home a signal blue bag, which she shared in the Fall 2014 Sale Thread, a thread full of terrific bargains and reveals, including this wallet in an unusual and gorgeous shade.

Bottega-Veneta-Hobo

Hershey’s Kisses showed off this incredibly smooshy Veneta in camel, and lvcrml shared her new bag, an extra special reveal because her PurseForum friends provided their opinions and input every step of the way.

Yummy-Food

We have some brilliant interior decorators on the PurseForum, and we often get a peek at their work in Home and Garden. At the moment, we are following Myrkur’s new home decorating thread, and are loving what we are seeing! Before you start a decorating project, be sure to stop in the Decorating Pet Peeve thread to avoid some common pitfalls.

Since the beginning of the new year is a great excuse to declutter and get organized, we stopped into the 15 Minutes a Day to Declutter thread for continuing inspiration on getting organized. Our photo this week comes from azmi_lv, straight from France and the I Ate This thread in The Kitchen–a delicious way to start the New Year!

Thank you for starting off you New Year with the PurseForum Roundup. We love sharing beautiful bags and interesting conversations with you, and hope you will be back every week in 2015! We wish you and your family every happiness in the coming year and will see you right back here in a week.
