While all of us on the PurseBlog team love handbags, we also find ourselves constantly coveting a plethora of other items. We discuss a wide range of topics at the PurseBlog offices, from real estate to fur coats, and this week I can not stop staring at these three products in particular.

Beautiful skin, the perfect body-hugging dress, and a funky notebook are the items I find myself drawn to. From the highly decadent La Prairie Advanced Marine Biology Set to an ivory Alice + Olivia Victoria Peplum Dress to a quirky Lanvin notebook, these are three things I want this Wednesday.

1. La Prairie Advanced Marine Biology Set | $135 via Neiman Marcus
Our new Director of Sales and Marketing, Hilary, can not stop talking about her obsession with this brand and the Marine Biology collection. She says the foaming mousse cleanser feels like cashmere on your skin and using this line has kept her skin from looking like the winter blues took over.

2. Alice + Olivia Victoria Peplum Dress | $264 via ShopBop
I love a good peplum and am entirely thrilled to see more designers using peplums in their collections, not to mention that Alice + Olivia has a way to be completely on-trend without breaking the bank. Instead of opting for black, I think the ivory will showcase the design elements much more.

3. Lanvin Printed notebook | $55 via Net-A-Porter
I carried an Hermes notebook around fashion week in my bag at all times. Sure, Hermes is divine, but for a simple notebook to jot down important notes I like the idea of a something a little spunky. The Lanvin notebook features fun drawings by Alber Elbaz that really spice up a simple pad of paper.

    I didn’t know where to ask this so I figured since this is your most recent post you would see it. If you can recommend one good bag that will last throughout the years and still stay fashionable amongst all of the new trends coming out, what bag would that be? I’m not the type of person who can afford the IT bag of every season of every year, but right now I can afford a nice bag and I do not want it to go out of style. What bag would that be? You’re welcome to give me more than one option. Thank you so much.
