For those of you who wanted one, it’s probably time to come to terms with the fact that you’re not going to get a Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag for spring. (Add it to your wishlist …
Now that both crazy storms have passed through the Northeast (and I have come back from the vacation that allowed me to miss the first one), the PurseBlog team is back at full steam, which …
We have been loving Foley + Corinna for quite some time! Their rugged urban chic vibe perfectly pairs everything that I love about a handbag in one, which makes a very wearable and stand out finished product. The most recognized design from the brand is the Foley + Corinna City Bag, and recently they shrunk down the City to make the Disco City bags, which we adore.
Good news for all of you is that we are giving away TWO Disco City Bags from Foley + Corinna! Each winner will be able to choose the bag of their choice from the stock (some newer renditions seen in the banner below!).

We’ve written about Foley + Corinna’s fabulous line of City bags so many times that it just can’t be counted. They’re just shaped so well – they look easy and effortless, everything that a proper blase hipster or uptown girl wants to be. And this latest version is also miniature, like the shrunken leopard City Tote I wrote about recently.
But what’s newer and edgier about this Foley + Corinna Dumond Disco City Studded Leather Cross Body Bag is that it’s studded – but only slightly. Rather than just taking the same road as many handbag designers by splashing studs all over their bags, this bag does it sparingly and in an innovative manner. The studs function as the bag’s hinges, which makes them look utilitarian but in the most glam way possible, of course. (more…)
We’ve already covered the snake-print hobo version of the Foley + Corinna Leather Buckle Satchel, but this grey version in arm-carried form is compelling enough that I think it deserves a post and discussion of its own.
I’m a big advocate of grey accessories as a modern, year-round alternative to black and brown, and like the hobo iteration, the asymmetrical buckle placement makes this bag a little more interesting than your average leather satchel. (more…)
It might be a bit early to declare box bags as a trend, but the sight of Victoria Beckham carrying one a little while back and now the appearance of fall’s Alexander Wang Tai Dopp Kit Bag make it seem as though more such bags will come out of the woodwork in the near future. Boxes certainly fit with the emerging trend of petite, streamlined, slightly retro handbags, and if you want to hop on this look before all of your friends know about it, we’ve got a few suggestions – one that plays up the bag’s grey tone, another that accents the creams and beiges.

It’s been a while since I really, really liked a Foley + Corinna bag. It’s not that I’ve disliked the brand’s recent offerings, but more that they haven’t inspired much critical thinking. I can only write so many posts about the dozens of different City Tote iterations before my ability to think of new words to describe them ceases to continue.
On the other hand, I really quite like the Foley + Corinna Python Buckle Hobo. In the brand’s tradition, the design is relatively free of unnecessary complications and totally user-friendly, but the asymmetrical buckle placement gives it just enough attitude to make it noticeable beyond your average hobo.

Wow! Now THIS is an edgy bag that I can wrap my mind around. Ok, I am about to state the obvious, but hear me out for a second. A little while ago I was kind of over Foley + Corinna bags. They all seemed to be the same just available in different colors or slightly different sizes. Anyone else with me on that?
So, today, I started looking around at what Bloomingdale’s has available. Per usual, I found myself going from item to item, giving a mental thumbs up or thumbs down and continuing on. As I ventured back to the handbag section I saw a lot of what I’ve seen before. That was until I came across this beauty. (more…)
First and foremost, when it comes to Foley + Corinna handbags, I am used to seeing totes, not clutches. But today, I saw this Foley + Corinna Fold Over Clutch and I couldn’t help but want to investigate a bit further. The first thing I thought was that I wished that I saw this clutch before New Year’s because this could have been a contender. (more…)
