If you are anything like us, you are stunned that yesterday was the last day of April. And, if you’re really like us, a pretty bag will take your mind off of just about any worry, even the swift passage of time. This week, we looked in to the Jewelry Box and dropped into Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga, where it was not all good bag news. Welcome to the Roundup!

Jewelry-Trio-Set

The PurseForum’s Jewelry Box is chock full of Tiffany, Cartier, Van Cleef and Arpels and watches and rings. We love to prowl around for the unusual pieces, and this week we found a beautiful set that Thingofbeauty picked up and generously shared with us.

Snake-Bracelet

Gaudygirl also showed off some unusual pieces in the Semiprecious Stones thread, where we also found mistikat’s incredible carnelian, opal, malachite and various other beads. This thread is fast becoming a favorite of ours, and we hope you will pay a visit and perhaps share some of your collections, too.

Last but certainly not least, how about the Apple Watch? Where do you stand? We have a thread just for you to share your thoughts or simply check in to see where are members stand on the new wearable technology.

88-Eyeshadow-Set

You may remember that our Beauty Bar is not only a place to talk about beauty products, but is also the home of many gift exchanges and swaps. Members fulfilling the requirements send out swap boxes and Random Act of Kindness (RAOK) activities throughout the year. This week, we visited the Hoppy Spring RAOK thread just in time to catch this beautiful reveal from Mrsbagalot1222, who is understandably thrilled at what her gift exchange partner shared with her.

Do you know the Price for Beautiful Hair? We do, and we have a thread dedicated to this question so you can know, too. We had scents on the brain this week, and the Signature Perfume thread gave us lots of ideas for our next trip to pick up a new fragrance.

Balenciaga-Metal-Edge-City-Bag

JP23 rocked her new bag in Balenciaga, and what a beauty. If you like pink, you will really enjoy this reveal from PrincessCypress, not just for the bag, but for a fabulous pair of Valentinos, as well.

Sometimes members share less-than-happy news about their bags, and this week, a City Bag of questionable quality came under scrutiny, and for pretty good reason. Stop in to see how FrenchBulldog resolved her issue–you may be surprised. Happier reveals abound in the March/April purchases thread; you will love the variety of great bags in this fast-moving thread.

Louis-Vuitton-Alma-BB-Epi-Leather

We found a fun thread in Louis Vuitton this week, where shots like this bag from Nivahra answer the question, “Who is in your passenger seat?”

Louis-Vuitton-Tribal-Luggage-Tag

Boyoverboard grabbed our attention with his Big Haul thread–a definite must-see for any lover of small leather goods. There are plenty of wonderful detail photos in this thread, and boyoverboard really did an amazing job of selecting his new pieces.

Staceyjan asked for some assistance this week, and our member are jumping right in to help her pick out a special gift for her mom. It’s not too late to weigh in, and in the process, you might decide on your next bag, too.

Chloe-Marcie-Bag

This Chloé Marcie is such a hot bag, and sinyard is thrilled with hers. Fans of the Drew will flip over CoachCruisers’ new bag, her first Chloé, and it’s absolutely lovely. The Faye bag is catching our members’ attention, and CoachCruiser dropped a couple pictures of her new bag (she is on a roll!). We hope to see some more of our members’ new bags popping up in our the Faye thread.  Carrierae also has two new Chloé bags to reveal, and they are not to be missed.

Thank you for stopping by. We wish you a very wonderful weekend and a happy first week of May. See you right here again next week!

    I don’t know why, but I can’t post on the Forum…so I guess I’ll post my reveal here. I just bought this Bottega Veneta bag today. It’s a brand new model, the Atlantic, only in BV stores a few weeks or so. Based on the Olimpia design but with a much better chain — can be carried over the shoulder easily or the adjustable double chain can become a single long chain to wear cross body. Mine is in the nero color (not shown on the web site: http://www.bottegaveneta.com/ch/shoulder-or-hobo-bag_cod45266653xp.html ). They also gave me a bunch of trial size perfume samples, including Knot, the new perfume. And the sample sizes aren’t just in plastic tubes, they’re miniature versions of the full size bottles. Sweet!

    • Passerine

      Sorry, Atlantic is the color shown on the BV link, not the model name. It’s a new variation of Olimpia.

      • Stina Sias

        That is beautiful! Love that chain! I also have had real trouble posting pics on the forum but haven’t seen that issue addressed in FAQ, I would appreciate more info on how to pist pics!

        yeah it is beautiful bag!

      • Lina Lee

        Beautiful bag, isn’t it? :)

    • Lina Lee

      Cool! I love BV it is my number one brand! I have a collection. I had my eyes on the Olimpia bag. My sales associate told about this bag. It wasn’t on the website, but now it is. Do you recommend this bag over Olimpia? Wonderful for giving you the new perfume samples. I love BV their stuff and sales associates services. Thank you for sharing.

      • Passerine

        Yes, I do, although BV still considers this an Olimpia bag. Olimpia 2.0, I guess. I had wanted the original Olimpia but saw it two weeks ago at a non-BV store and was disappointed by the shortness of the strap. Unless you are wearing a sleeveless top or something with very thin sleeves, there is no way it could be a true shoulder bag. Perhaps BV received that feedback from their customers, because this new version of Olimpia takes care of that problem. When the chains/straps are worn double, it’s still easy to carry on your shoulder, even with a jacket or coat. As a single long chain/strap bag, it can be worn cross-body. It’s not a large bag, it’s on the smaller side of medium-sized, but I don’t always want to carry large bags. The mirror that comes with it is a nice feature but…the face of the mirror isn’t protected. It’s too big for the smartphone pocket and could easily get scratched, dirty or broken in the bag on its own (I’ll keep my wallet in the zip pocket). That’s the one thing I’d change — provide a small case for the mirror or a separate pocket it could fit into securely. Otherwise, it’s a great bag for everything but the most formal occasions. I’m going to Italy later in the year and this bag is definitely coming along!

      • Lina Lee

        I did check Olimpia the strap and you are right it is short. I did try it on and was kind of okay. One of my BV bags has a mirror I keep it in the envelope that comes with it and it is in the zipper compartment. The mirror too big? Really? Why’d you change the zip pocket? Thank you for your honest feedback. Wow! Wonderful you’ll take her with to her country. I hope you enjoy having the bag and the visit to Italy. Have fun there!

      • Lina Lee

        Sorry to bother you, but what do you think of this bag? I know it’s for men http://www.bottegaveneta.com/us/messenger-bag_cod45217335gk.html I don’t know to get the Olimpia bag or the new Olimpia or the messenger bag?
