Happy Friday, Roundup Readers! We hope you are all rested up from the National Handbag Day festivities. We certainly had a lovely time revisiting some of our favorite bags and collections last week and hope you did too.
This week, we dropped into Coach and checked in on the Snoopy Line conversation, which you'll want to check out! We also looked in on two new bag styles in Bottega Veneta and stopped by Beauty Bar and Nail Care to see what gifts our sweet and generous members are sharing across the globe!
We feel just about ready for fall, and the cool brown palette in this photo has us ready for a Bottega Veneta Cabat, too! This beautiful bag belongs to grietje, who was kind enough to share a modeling shot along with her reveal. PeonyPlum added an electric blue Cervo to her collection, and her reveal includes some family photos, which we love.
Also in Bottega Veneta, we are keeping our eye on the Veneta - New Design Coming Soon thread, where we hope photos will be coming soon, too, so we can all decide if this new bag is going on our wish list. BV is also adding a new Medium Cabat, and thanks to prestwick, we are up to date on this new style as well.
Black pumps are classic and timeless, and we found a fabulous pair in the Stuart Weitzman thread; thanks to deltalady, our show wish list just grew again. Engineerinheels is focusing on sky-high mules in her thread, which is off to a fabulous start with Cassadei and Giussepe Zanotti. Do you have a favorite pair of mules to add to this conversation?
We found plenty of other entertainment this week Glass Slipper. But if you are pressed for time, drop into the Post Your New Purchases thread, where reveals are the order of the day every day (and where we found these adorable neoprene mouse MbMJ flats that Mimmy could not resist).
In Coach this week, dl787's reveal has it all. Plenty of speed, brilliant red color, fabulous bag, unbiased review, modeling shots and a peek inside. This pretty red currant Ranger will no doubt be a wardrobe staple, and for good reason.
Back in August, word of the Coach Snoopy Line was met with a bit of, well, let's just call it skepticism (to put it mildly). Quite a few of our members thought the addition of the Peanuts characters would be over the top. Now that this line has hit the stores, skeptics have become fans and reveals have begun. So far we have seen some cute hangtags (like this collection from Weekend Shopper, and this one from pbnjam) and are hoping to see bags any day now.
In our Beauty Bar, the Halloween Random Act of Kindness (RAOK) reveal thread is well under way, and the gifts are wonderful! Our members love these exchanges, and this week we dropped in just in time to catch up with Samia's reveal. Stop in to see these and all the other gifts exchanged so far – they are absolutely wonderful! Plenty of other conversations in the Beauty Bar cover everything from those pesky grey hairs to skincare favorites and just about everything in between.
And, if you have some time, drop into the Nail Care subforum, where summer's polish exchange is still in full swing. Kemp203 shared this great selection, and there are plenty more teriffic polish ideas in the box, which is still making the rounds.
"Soft leather, perfect fit, fit like a glove." Need we say more? These fabulous Gucci Helen booties initially got rave reviews from their happy new owner, 4purse, and unanimous approval from her Gucci friends. However, the proof is in the wearing, and therein lies the rub. Literally. Catch up with 4purse's bootie saga here, and wait with us to hear what Gucci has to say about this situation!
Sometimes it really is the "little things" – in this case, this little treasure is the perfect accompaniment to allyloupuppy's new disco bag. Word has it the matching card case is on the way too, and allyloupuppy has promised a family photo and a peek inside her new bag once its loaded and ready to party. Not bad for a first purchase.
We will be back here again next Friday with some bags for fall and more peeks into conversations from the PurseForum and we hope you will join us. In the meantime, visit the forum and find more reveals and interesting topics – there certainly are plenty. Until we meet again, have a wonderful weekend, enjoy the week ahead and be sure to stop by next Friday.
