Earlier this week we popped into the Diane von Furstenberg showroom to see all of the amazing accessories arriving soon (we have a huge spring look for you all coming tomorrow). DvF continues to nudge her way into the competitive handbag market effortlessly, bringing fresh designs that are grabbing attention. (more…)
So many of you said the Diane von Furstenberg Stephanie was too big. That bag is super-sized and super fabulous. But if you still think it is too big but you liked the look, DvF has come to the rescue. The Diane von Furstenberg Stephanie Clutch is the baby sis to the larger Stephanie and is the perfect size. We are obsessed. The body of the clutch features the chain-link metallic leather design, which is truly a technique I have not seen on another bag EVER. Dimensions of the clutch, 5.5″H x 11.5″L x 3″D, are tiny when compared to the large hobo [$395 via ShopBop].
Now Diane has taken over the handbag world, continuing to bring us DvF Handbags that we can not get enough of. Not only does Diane understand a woman’s body and how to make the perfect dress among other clothing items, but she also understands the handbag world. Therefor we adore Diane von Furstenberg and look forward to seeing many more of her bags.

From the first moment I saw the DvF Stephanie Bag I knew I absolutely had to have it. This DvF bag is different from every single bag in my handbag closet. It is super large, it is super slouchy, it hangs low. It is the type of bag you would expect to see on a hipster, only it is not just intended for hipsters. This hobo gives off a rocker vibe, but there is something very goddess like about it as well. The most interesting part of this bag is the chain-link metallic leather. Upon first glance the bag may look like it is actually made of metal, but this bag features leather woven together in a way I have not seen on any other bag. I carried my new Diane von Furstenberg bag over the weekend and I am absolutely in love with it. Vlad loves it too. The bag is super oversized, but I am 5’10 so with the strap hanging low and me in flats it still hits nicely and is not dragging on the floor. I already received compliments and am sure that there are many more compliments to come. Vlad is planning to shoot this bag much more in depth, but for those of you who have been emailing me to ask about how it looks, fits, etc, I have a picture to share now (also the shot of Beyonce shows how the bag looks on). And the best news is that ShopBop is now carrying the bag! Buy through ShopBop for $995.
I knew this bag was going to be a big hit. Totally knew it from the moment I saw it. And all of you seemed to agree, that you positively loved the new metallic slouchy bag from DvF. While I covered the medium DvF Stephanie Bag previously, the version Beyonce was spotted carrying is the large gold metallic DvF Stephanie Bag. And the Purse Blog team made sure to go out and buy the bag before it sold out completely! What I absolutely adore about this bag is that it truly is different from any other bag in my closet. It is totally oversized, really huge actually, and slouchy, and can hang low on your body (though you can adjust the shoulder straps to wear it different ways). Really, what is not to love about this bag? Spacious, comfortable, relevant, and a little metallic gleam. I know we love it, and while we wait for Vlad to shoot it we are graciously contemplating who will wear it first. I got first dibs! And while the bag is out of stock online, check out your nearest DvF boutique. We lucked out at DvF Bal Harbour (305.865.1850).
The new must-have handbag floating around the DvF offices is the metallic Diane von Furstenberg Stephanie Bag. This bag is a favorite among the DvF staff (wonder if Whitney and Olivia are vying for it!). Celebs already carrying the bag include Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, and Jessica Biel. Because I am thoroughly obsessed with The Hills and now The City, I can image this bag being the handbag of choice on Whitney and her bff Erin. The DvF Stephanie Bag is a slouchy hobo which stands out with its knitted metallic leather, either gold or magenta, and an adjustable leather strap. The shape of the bag will slouch beautifully next to your body, give you both hands, and lend that boho chic vibe. I can see why this is the new beloved DvF bag and it is totally my style. I would opt for the gold. Buy through DvF for $875.
UPDATE: ShopBop currently has the DvF Stephanie in stock: $995 via ShopBop.
After introducing the new kid on the block, the Diane von Furstenberg Wrap Bag, I began to really fall in love more with this bag. I have always loved DvF but her ventures in the handbag world have been small and now she is satiating our need for a handbag from her stylish house. Along with the wrap bag, Diane designed a fold over clutch, the Diane von Furstenberg Ceo Bag which has a vintage appeal. This clutch is very simple but fits in nicely with spring’s boho trend. You have the option to fold it over and use it as a clutch or open it up and carry it from the cut out handle. The leather stitching detail adds a little twang. The idea behind the bag is very simple, but is it too simple for anyone to really fall for it? Buy through Net A Porter for $440.
