Happy May! We hope April showers are bringing plenty of May flowers to your garden. This week, we found some lovely florals in Louis Vuitton, an animal surprise in Mulberry, and a few other pretty springtime reveals throughout the forum. Oh, and some bling too! Come on in!

Louis Vuitton Articles de Voyage Floral Bags

Louis Vuitton started spring off right with the launch of Ikat Floral bags and accessories. Fans have been eager to share their purchases in the LV Clubhouse thread dedicated to this line. Sprinkles&Bling showed her love of May flowers with her new Neverful and wallets, and maye’s grand bleu version of the Ikat Floral Neverful, along with Fashon1s cosmetic pouch, spurred us to look further into these great LV Summer 2013 accessories. Be sure to also check out the LV reveals this week, too!

Miu Miu Buckle Bracelet

The PurseForum’s “Latest Purchases” threads are fast-moving, fun and always interesting. Whether it is a new piece we have not yet discovered, the incredible photographic skills of our members or the stylings and pairings we love to admire, these threads never disappoint. This week in the Miu Miu thread, Luxtan revealed a cute bracelet that we just had to share with our Roundup readers. Also, be sure to see the beautiful bags that helped sissalovebags celebrate her birthday! And, if there are any Miu Miu aficionados out there, TheMoustaches needs your help identifying a pair of shoes.

Mulberry Gecko Print

We love being surprised by designers—and of course a bit of whimsy is always welcome in our closets! In Mulberry, a conversation about the gecko-themed scarves pulled us right in, and these pretty wraps immediately stole our hearts. Members tortoiseperson and thelittlestar shared their purchases here, and we were enchanted. There were lots of handbag reveals in Mulberry this week, too; we particularly loved the grass green Lily that mulberryforbes round at the outlets! A gorgeous spring green bag at a great price, what a fantastic combination!

Balenciaga and Gucci Bags

Speaking of recent acquisitions: In Handbags and Purses, the thread dedicated to handbag purchases always tops the charts, and for good reason. We perused its pages this week and found some inspiring new bags, like this colorful quartet from craziepink and allyloupuppy’s beautiful new empreinte Speedy. If you are in the mood for a new bag and need some ideas, there is something for every taste and budget in this great, photo-rich resource. See you there!


Sometimes we need help with an important purchase, be it a handbag, electronic doodad, or piece of jewelry. For the latter, the Jewelry Box is definitely the place to start. This week, we stopped by Designpurchaser’s thread on pearl color, where helpful members shared their thoughts on this all-important jewelry staple. CrystalDreams posted a spectacular and very useful comparison shot, including freshwater and baroque South Sea pearls, and tustin’s stunning black South Seas birthday strand is absolutely not to be missed.

If pearls are not on your shopping list, The Jewelry Box Reference Forum is packed with threads dedicated to all things bling, including colored gemstones, watches, Van Cleef and Arpels and more. Of course, the Diamond FAQ and Reference thread is right on Page One for all of your diamond needs. Even if you are not shopping, the Jewelry Box is sure to become a favorite stop in your PurseForum explorations.

Thank you for taking the time to share this week’s Roundup. We hope you have a terrific weekend and look forward to sharing our favorite threads with you next week! See you then!
