It’s time to wrap up May, Roundup readers, and we are going to do it in fine style. This week, we stopped by our brand new Wardrobe Showcase subforum and paid visits to Balenciaga and Bottega Veneta. And that was just the beginning! Thanks for joining us on another romp through the PurseForum–let’s get to it.

Outfit

We have added a new subforum to the Wardrobe, and we are so excited to share it with you! Please take some time to get to visit our Wardrobe Showcase, where our members share their style in their very own lookbook and style threads. We have so many incredibly fashionable and creative members, and this is the place to visit all of them! This week, we dropped in on Mimmy and bakeacookie, whose pairing of two brooches caught the eye of several of our members. We have collected all the member wardrobe threads from the forum in this one stylish spot, so please enjoy!

Louis-Vuitton-Mon-Monogram-Speedy-Bag

Our main Wardrobe subforum still houses our Outfit of the Day thread, where HeartMyMJs showed off a great look for a cool spring day. This fast-moving thread never fails to inspire, so drop by and pick up some great ideas for spring. You can also find conversations on all your favorite brands here, so you will want to plan plenty of time for your visit.

Bottega-Veneta-Cabat-Tote

When the question is, “Who wants to take a trip to Barcelona?” the answer is US! This week, jburgh posed that question in Bottega Veneta, and showed off her brand new (and truly magnificent) Barcelona Cabat, a holy grail that looks like it was worth the wait! If you like BV–or corgis–you will not want to miss this reveal.

Bottega-Veneta-Bag-in-Car

Mousse took her bag out for a shopping trip and came back with one of the prettiest reveals we have seen in Bottega Veneta, and we will leave it to you to pay a visit to her thread and enjoy the surprise! Hint: This box has absolutely no leather inside.

Bottega-Veneta-Bag-in-Venice

We know this is a picture-heavy visit to BV, but we could not resist this incredible Bottega Veneta in Action shot from hereuse, a picture that really is worth a thousand words.

Balenciaga-Velo-Bag

We also paid a visit to Balenciaga, where we know we will always find colorful bags and lively reveals; this week certainly did not disappoint. Dintegrity revealed a pretty green mini Papier A4 and PlaceboGiraffe knocked it out of the park with modeling shots of her very first Bal (above), a Velo in rich, true black that she paired with a terrific outfit. If you prefer more green, ZoobaAruba has you covered with her instant reveal of her first Balenciaga, a City that really pops.

Remember, like most of our designer subforums, Balenciaga is loaded with reference threads on style, color and size to help you with your purchase. If you have something specific in mind, perhaps the Clubhouse already has a conversation going? Moto jackets, anyone?

Gucci-Soho-Flap-Bag

When our members cheat on their favorite brands, it’s spectator sport at PurseForum, and we have special threads where they can unburden themselves of their guilt. Louis Vuitton members cheat right along with the best of them, and in their special thread, we found a gorgeous little Gucci Soho that we could not resist. The cat’s out of the bag, Manchoo78!

Louis-Vuitton-Monogram-Vernis-Pouch

Katieny picked up a very pretty vernis Lexington pochette, and our members loved this soft green for spring.

Laduree-Macaron-Keychain

Phédra also posted a lovely reveal this week–a bag charm Louis Vuitton created in collaboration with the famous French tea room Ladurée, which has been graciously blessing us with delicious macarons since 1862. Elsewhere in Louis Vuitton, Kerz23’s husband’s heart was in the right place as he tried to “dig himself out of the doghouse” with this valiant effort, but kerz23 is looking for input on a different color for a key pouch. Any ideas?

Kate-Spade-Tote-and-Clutch

This double reveal in Kate Spade certainly brightened up our day. JuneHawk shared her luscious Hayden bag and Emanuelle clutch–what a great pair! You can find lots more Kate Spade bags in this thread, the place where our members show off anything and everything from this fun brand. Be sure to check out the great bargain LolaCalifornia picked up for a song–a super bag for spring with some interesting color detailing to boot. Kate Spade is a contemporary powerhouse, and we always find something unique and whimsical whenever we visit.

We want to thank you for stopping, and to wish you and your families a wonderful weekend and week ahead. We look forward to sharing more from the PurseForum right here next week!

    LOVE BOTTEGA! few days I’ve got 4 items from the Boutique in Bahrain yay! Hehe :D :)

    • Passerine

      What did you get? I recently bought the new Olimpia bag (in nero) with the longer, double chain. Love it. And the store gave me miniature bottles of all their fragrances :-) With an unlimited budget, I’d pick up new new dark navy cocco souple Rialto bag (5000 euros) available only in their stores.

      • Lina Lee

        Wow! wonderful bag! I was going to get the Olimpia ( not the new one) bag in black. I change my mind ’cause I have a similar bag. I did get this time a messenger bag from men section and some other stuff! I’ll take pics and share it with you just give a few minutes.
        Sorry for not replying on time ’cause I pack my stuff in the suitcase and I didn’t have pics of them and yesterday I arrive back home.

      • Lina Lee

        Congratulations on your new bag! (forget to mention it on my reply to you) Enjoy having her!

        The messenger bag I really love it. I can use it for travel and even daily. The name of the bag is INTRECCIATO VN CROSS BODY MESSENGER I wanted in black, but in the boutique they didn’t have it the have in brown. The bag was 50% off.
