This is my first holiday season doing the ol’ full-time PurseBlogger gig, so I don’t have a previous party season with which to compare it, but it certainly seems like there are so many shiny, glam, wonderful little clutches surfacing for our holiday enjoyment lately.
I’d imagine that at least part of the uptick is based on the season and part of it is just me paying increased attention to them because I love the holidays, but either way, you’ve got to admit that the Franchi Feather Frame Clutch is kind of adorable. (more…)
I think I might be taking crazy pills, but I find myself totally enamored of the Coach Sequins Spotlight Bag that some of Little Jenny Humphrey’s high school minions were sporting on last night’s new episode of Gossip Girl.
They had the bag, which is part of Coach‘s teenage-focused Poppy line, in three different colors, and I loved each more than the last. But for a fall/winter season where so many things are black and silver, wouldn’t red be a great addition to so many outfits? (more…)
It seems like all I had to do is complain that I was feeling a little blah about the Stam, and Marc Jacobs rose to the occasion. First we got the studded-yet-understated Marc Jacobs Stardust Stam, and now he’s brought us the not-at-all-understated Marc Jacobs New York Rocker Stam. Although I’m not sure that this sequined-n-shiny satchel is best suited to New York – in fact, I think it might be more at home in Las Vegas.
And I mean that in the nicest way possible – I love this bag so much that I could just drool all over it. The name of the last Stam I reviewed reminded me of Sin City, and now this; does anyone else think that maybe Marc should consider doing a glizty, glamorous Las Vegas-inspired collection? Sequins would be the perfect place to start, and I love the ones on this bag because they’re not as expected as sequin-covered bags usually are. They’re small enough that at a distance, they blend together to form a shimmery, shiny whole instead of a bag covered in sewn-on crap, and the silver, off-center, abstract pattern at the bottom gives the bag a modern edge that helps it avoid the grandma-bag pitfall of multitudinous sequins. Viva Las Vegas! Er, uh, New York! Buy through Saks for $1995.
