The windup to the holidays is in full swing, Roundup readers, so how are you holding up? This week, we dropped into Dior and Mulberry and considered the ups and downs of the holidays in the Health and Fitness subform.

Dior Box

A reveal from Monte Carlo is a great way to grab our attention. It definitely worked like a charm, and charm is what Svetli’s thread in Dior had plenty of. Her beautifully photographed reveal was quite a hit, and to see what is in the box, you will have to pay her a visit – it will be well worth the trip, we promise.

Dior Tote

Missyb is setting off on holiday and picked up a terrific find in this this sunny, original-style Panaera Tote. Many prefer the old style to the new, and this is a great score. Ashiraya shared a lovely reveal with us as well; you will definitely want to see here pretty new Lady Dior right here.

Mulberry Bags

It’s always nice to see what our lovely Mulberry ladies are up to. It’s been a while since we visited Mulberry, and we got there just in time to see a pretty raspberry Bayswater from Fluffybee. Aerinha also got a new bag, this time a small Del Rey Satchel, or DRS to her friends. We absolutely loved this pair of Tessies that Ser shared–that tote looks delicious, doesn’t it? If you are a fan of this brand, be sure to visit the Mulberry Family thread to see our members collections.

Chloe Marcie Bag

We thought we would drop into Chloé and see which bags our members are revealing this winter. This Chloé Marcie is cute as a button, and we agree that Dutch Mulberry made a great score. 

Chloe Drew Bag

We also paid a visit to the Chloé Family Photo Album, and we fell deeply in love with this Drew so elegantly presented by WastedHours. What a gorgeous bag.

Kate Spade Leslie Bag

We thought we’d round out the Roundup with some quick reveals and bag shots from around the PurseForum. We found this scrumptious dark geranium Kate Spade Leslie from LolaCalifornia in the Which Kate Spade Are You Carrying Today thread, which is a great showcase for this designer.

Valentino Python Bag and Shoes

In Valentino, mga13 brought down the house with her October Reveals–we stopped by again and spotted this fabulous pairing of a bag and shoes. Valentino has been pretty quiet lately, but it’s always nice to revisit some of these spectacular reveal threads.

Gucci Shoulder Bag

IrisCole added to her Gucci collection with this magnificent messenger, as well as adding a sweet little family photo to her reveal thread. What a bag.

Jimmy Choo Boots

In Jimmy Choo, we spotted pattyui’s first Choos, and what a wonderful pair of booties they are! Congratulations Pattyui and welcome to the Jimmy Choo!


The holidays can mean stress for a lot of us. Fortunately, right in the nick of time, the Health and Fitness Forum’s What do You Do to Relieve Stress thread is back on page one. The holidays also mean plenty of eating opportunities, and holiday fare is notoriously hard on the waistline.  Our Health and Fitness subforum is a great place to get healthy tips along with advice and support.

The 2014 Fitness Support thread is wrapping and filled with helpful suggestions that have worked for our members. There will be a 2015 thread at the start of the new year, and all are welcome! And if you are feeling guilty about your last indulgence, feel free to unburden yourself in the Guilty Pleasures thread, where you may even feel a little bit better about your choice, because trust us, our members REALLY know how to indulge (Exhibit A: Mousse’s peanut butter pie from the I Ate This thread!)

Thank you for joining us. We hope that those of you celebrating Thanksgiving have a wonderful celebration with friends and family. And our thoughts are with those suffering through some seriously frightening weather. We hope the rest of winter will be easier to bear, and hope you will find some diversion and delights here. Thank you for stopping by, have a great weekend!

P.S. Please consider supporting our small, bag-loving team by clicking our links before shopping or checking out at your favorite online retailers like Amazon, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, or any of the listed partners on our shop page. We truly appreciate your support!

    Are you guys having problems with the forum? I keep getting a database error when I try to access it. Sorry to post here, although it’s somewhat relevant given it’s a roundup. :)

    • lee_dya

      yes, I can’t open it either! but I’m glad that its not only! I thought there was something wrong with my gadget!

      • Pennydreadful

        Hahaha I was wondering the same thing. I’m glad you posted, I came here to check!

      • Mel

        me too!! I’ve even changed wi-fi networks, tried accessing it on my phone and it still said “data base error”!

      • Ya we were having issues – so sorry about it. Vlad is working with a forum guru (seriously they speak database language and I don’t follow!!) to help with the problems we keep experiencing. My fingers are crossed it will all be rectified soon!

      • sbags

        Any idea when the forum will be back up?

      • It’s taking longer than anticipated, which seems to be how these things go. We are hoping soon, but I don’t want to put a time on it as we keep thinking it is sooner than it is. Hang in there, I know this is frustrating!

      • Pennydreadful

        Thanks for the update Megs! I guess I didn’t realize quite how much I rely on tpf on the weekends; I think I’m going through withdrawals.

    Anyone knows what brand is the watch worn with the Hermes bracelet in the first photo?


    Oh my, I’m absolutely in LOVE with those Valentino heels! Gorgeous <3

  • Nick

    Ha I also want to know who makes that watch is cool

  • Nick

    So,I’m new to the site, is this where I can ask opinions about purses? Or is this blog specific to a certain subject?

    • Fabfashion

      You can check out the Purseforum section for opinions on purses and share your thoughts and ideas. That section is currently under maintenance and should be up shortly (I hope).

      Ok thanks
