PurseForum Roundup – July 30

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel Classic Flap Bag

It’s Friday again, and that means another fabulous PurseForum Roundup. We always have lots going on throughout our Forum and are happy to bring you a collection of highlights. This week, we visited a couple of islands – Ban Islands, that is, as well as our Playground for some television and book fare. We also found some scrumptious bags, so come on along and join us!


Louis Vuitton Epi Alma Bag

This week in Television and Cinema, we are still all about the Game of Thrones finale, as well gearing up for the final season of True Blood. Of course, we also have a huge selection of other television shows and movies. You’ll also find plenty of summer reading suggestions in Books and Music, including our 2014 Reading Challenges and the Take a Picture of the Book You are Reading thread.

In Home and Garden, we spent some time in the What Does Your Room Look Like thread, where we found some very talented interior decorators on our Forum. In the General Discussion’s own What are You Lacking the Motivation to Do conversation, we found lots of tasks that we would not be motivated to do, either! Dropping in random threads like this is always a kick, and there are plenty in the Playground to entertain you.


Christian Louboutin Python Pumps

Aren’t these fabulous! We visited the Christian Louboutin subforum and found these python Jaws in Show Off Your New Shoes, one of our favorite threads in Shoes, Shoes, Shoes.Pearyfooa picked up two pairs of CLs on sale, including a towering pair of 120mm Biancas that we definitely appreciate.

Member kham shared her new pair of brilliant fluo Pigalles, also in 120mm, and before you click, be sure you have your sunglasses on – they are absolutely blinding! If you are new to the brand, or just having trouble keeping up with all the styles, you will find lots of help in What Style is This? – definitely the place to go if you spot a pair of hot shoes in a magazine, movie or even on eBay! If Christian Louboutin is not your cup of tea, visit the Glass Slipper for all the rest of your favorite brands – maybe even some you have not yet met!


Yves Saint Laurent Muse Tote

Yves Saint Laurent’s iconic Muse bag tops the charts in the Saint Laurent subforum this week. Intrigued by the “It Started with House of Cards” thread title, we dropped in and saw thatElainePG had scored a sweet little Muse after being inspired by the popular TV show. Mouniaealso added a Muse to her bag collection – her first YSL bag is a medium version in classic cognac. Be sure to visit the Sales and Deals thread if you are considering a purchase; our members are always happy help direct one another to the best prices on their favorite bags and accessories.


Balenciaga Pink City Bag

In Balenciaga this week, we found a reveal underway right at our deadline. We jumped in to see what the heck an “Oh heck” reveal could mean, and learned something new! You may remember Ban Island, that special place in many of our designer subforums where our members go to wait out their bag-buying ban. Well, it turns out Ban Island residents can go on Shore Leave, Worth It Weekend or just slip up and say Oh Heck, I bought a new bag.Rainneday made her purchase under the latter exemption and shared her new City with us before hotfooting it back to Balenciaga’s own Ban Island.

Elsewhere in Balenciaga, Dearest Girl is looking for some help with a new purchase, whileLondon411 and aznanjl are seeking help with color decisions. We also found a cyclamen City belonging to hiro838 in the May-June Purchases thread – this bag is absolutely picture-perfect and wonderful for summer. You will find lots more reveals in this thread; our Balenciaga gals have been very busy this summer!


Chanel Classic Flap Bag

In Chanel, coxswain celebrated a very special move with a new Reissue that will definitely come in handy. We join the rest of her Chanel friends in thanking her husband for his service, and sharing her happiness at returning to their home state after a long absence. And of course, what a great new bag!

We also spotted this quintessential Classic Flap in luscious lambskin that bagloverny added to her collection; this iconic bag will surely be a wardrobe staple and, well, we want it (but we haven’t gotten a ticket off Ban Island yet)! And, heads up, the Pre-Summer Sale thread just started, and we are sure this will be a hot destination full of wonderful reveals and cannot wait to check back.

Chanel Castle Rock Bag

On our way out of Chanel, we spotted helenhandbag’s Amsterdam reveal of a spectacular new bag called Castle Rock and had to share. You can read all about it here, and generous helen hasalso included codes if you are hoping to add this new bag to your collection.

Well, fans, that’s our Roundup for this week – we sincerely thank you for joining us. Remember, all around the PurseForum, members are revealing bags, shoes and accessories, but that’s just the beginning of what this wonderful forum has to offer. We hope you will take some time to explore and to make new friends; we have plenty of incredibly kind, generous and clever members in every nook and cranny of this amazing place. We will be back next week with more for you to sample, but meanwhile, have a wonderful weekend and a very happy week ahead!

PurseForum Roundup – July 11

Categories:Other Brands

Prada Saffiano Bags

It’s Friday again, PurseForum Roundup readers! We hope you are having a wonderful summer, because folks over at the PurseForum sure are, and we found plenty of evidence this week of fun, shopping and so much more. Our members have been re-decorating, buying hot new colorful bags from Kate Spade, talking Television and Cinema, and so much more. Come join us and see what we’ve been up to!


Clocks

We visited Home and Garden this week and were excited to see that LuckyDogMom hasupdated her thread and shared more of her beautiful home. This thread is about much more than decorating, and we always enjoy catching up and watching her transform her space – the wall of clocks was a stroke of genius for her veranda.

Our PurseForum gardeners are having a busy summer, and we seem to have several green thumbs among us. Theren has a nice crop of tomatoes, Aluxe showed off a garden (or is it a farm?) visitor and Echoes’ fresh wild blackberries stole the show. We love kitchens, and have a thread in Home and Garden dedicated to our member’s fabulous cooking spaces. This month,designer1 showed off her newly redecorated kitchen, and we are sure you will agree that she did a super job.


Kate Spade Bag Prada Sunglasses

Kate Spade’s bags have style for days, and we love them. This week, we visited the Kate Spade subforum and found a few colorful reveals that really brightened up our summer day.Fatentaheera’s new bag caught the season’s mood perfectly, and paired with fabulous sunnies, it makes a combination that cannot be beat. Dusty emerald is one of our favorite Kate Spade colors, and TraGiv’s Minka looks resort-ready in this great summer shade.

Reenxo also picked up a Minka recently too, this one in French navy, another perfectly executed color from this brand. There are so many cute reveals this week in Kate Spade, you will want to take time to savor every one – like this fuchsia from NutsAboutCoach, or this sweet pair from LVLadyLover. If you are not familiar with all that Kate Spade has to offer, drop into this fun subforum and see what’s new!


Pagoda

The Random Picture thread is often quiet, but when it gets a bump, it’s always worth a look. This week, we found a lovely scene from Bali, where shinenim had a farm to table experienceright next to a rice paddy. Also in General Discussion, we joined in conversations about theWorld Cup, honeybees, and rainy days. General Discussion is one of many subforums in ourPlayground, the destination for myriad fascinating non-fashion discussions.

Our current events subforum, Up To The Minute, has also been very busy this week – among other things, we are talking over the Facebook situation, the news-making nanny, the handsome felon and other breaking news. If you want to focus on the positive, we also have a whole subforum dedicated to nothing but Good News. Also, don’t forget to check into the Playground’s Television and Cinema subforum if your summer viewing lineup needs a pick-me-up.


Prada Saffiano Bags

Look what we found in Prada! What a gorgeous pair. Labamse fell hard for viola, and who can blame her? Super-saturated colors dominate page one of Prada, and this bifold wallet in stunning red certainly made pookspook’s day – and ours! Lots of threads in Prada this week seemed to be about making decisions, so be sure to stop in and lend a hand if you can! If you are not yet a Prada aficionado, you will find plenty of help in our Prada Reference Library.

Prada Saffiano Wallet

Speaking of colors, salmon is not always easy to execute in leather, but this week we found aperfect salmon Prada revealed by lilyzhang0725 – one of the prettiest iterations of this color around!


Givenchy Mini Pandora

Givenchy was certainly busy this week as well. Right at presstime, we spotted this Pandora reveal from PlaceboGiraffe, who looks great carrying this edgy and stylish bag – a strong choice for a first Givenchy! DebbieC picked up her first Antigona this week, a show-stoppingblack classic and a definite must-see! We also found several members looking for advice in Givenchy, along with another fabulous reveal from Spethyla, who found a pretty blue bag at an amazing price.


Bottega Veneta Bags 1

Last but not least, we had to share this summery bag family photo from Grande Latte, whose Bottega Veneta bags capture the spirit of the season to perfection. Happy summer everyone!!


With that, we wrap up this edition of our PurseForum Roundup. We only scratch the surface each week, so we invite you to spend some time on your own, exploring and finding your own favorite haunts in our busy fashion hub. You can see that we have something for everyone, and we hope you will find a conversation to join and maybe make some new friends. In the meantime, have a terrific weekend, and happy week ahead. See you next Friday!

Shop Vintage Chanel Bags and Accessories Now via Moda Operandi

Categories:Other Brands

Vintage Chanel Bags and Accessories 5

Let’s be real: not many bags age well. Poor craftsmanship and materials become obvious over time, and most brand design to trends rather than having strong looks of their own that defy them. Chanel is one of very few exceptions to that rule, and that makes the brand’s vintage and pre-owned bags all the more covetable. Today, you have a chance to scoop one up for your very own via Moda Operandi.

Because so many Chanel bags that are popular now have gone largely unchanged since their introductions in decades past, these vintage bags don’t look at all dated. Instead, a vintage Chanel bag makes you look like the lucky girl who got an awesome bag passed down for her mom. If your mother doesn’t have any Chanel to give (or is unwilling to part with hers – we wouldn’t blame her), check out some of our favorites from the Moda trunkshow below or shop the full selection (which also includes jewelry and small accessories).

PurseForum Roundup – July 28

Categories:Other Brands

Louis Vuitton Epi Vernis Alma Bag

Good day, PurseForum Roundup readers! Unbelievably, it’s the last Roundup for June, which puts us halfway through 2014! This week, we visited Jimmy Choo, where we found some beautiful reveals of shoes and bags. We also found some super finds in Coach, including a rare bag marking a Coach milestone! A visit to the Wardrobe had us pondering our personal style, and there was loads to see in Louis Vuitton. And that’s not all!


Jimmy Choo Anouk Pumps

Jimmy Choo Anouks are certainly one of the most beloved and iconic shoes styles in the fashion universe. Shoegalkirsty took a moment to reveal her first pair this week, in absolutely classic and gorgeous black. Our member JustShoeMe took a walk on the wilder side of Jimmy Choo with her first pair of Choos, the striking and stylish Heath. Of course Jimmy Choo makes more than shoes, and this beautiful Rania bag sure put a smile on Izzy48′s  face this month!

Scottish Girl’s fun new birthday clutch sure put a smile on ours, and this little gem looks splendid in fire engine red. The front page of this subforum is full of reveals, so be sure to drop in and see what our Jimmy Choo fans have added to their collections. If you are a Choo fan, theLet’s Talk about Jimmy Choo Shoes thread is the place to visit if you cant get enough of these fabulous shoes.


Louis Vuitton Epi Vernis Alma Bag

Louis Vuitton lovers make LV one of our busiest subforums, and this week we found plenty of reveals. RhondaE is back after a little hiatus with a brand new bag; you can catch a better look at this charming epi Alma in her updated family photo, it’s actually a soft mint green perfect for summer. Bajan Love’s patience really paid off when she found her dream bag completely by chance and got a steal of a deal!

BellaNLawrence gave us some food for thought when she asked if age and the desire for vintage bags go hand in hand in this new thread. Marguch showed off her new shawl and got some support when she had a little bit of a mishap. The June purchases thread is understandably one of the hottest on the PurseForum, and bag buys like Love2learn’s new Speedy and ivy1026′s sleek black Marly are among the many reasons why.

Remember, if you are considering a purchase, all of our subforums have extensive Reference Libraries like this one to help you find your way.


Celine Luggage Tote Street Style

This week in The Wardrobe, we paid a visit to the Outfit of the Day thread, the perfect place to find fashion inspiration from our own PurseForum members. Agalorowicz showed off her casual style with this cute summer outfit in a soft beige palette. We also paid a visit to bakeacookie’s new Stylebook thread, which we love. The outfits are terrific and the advice worth its weight in gold. We hope to see more of these stylebooks in the very near future!

We didn’t want to leave this busy subforum without a shoutout to one of our favorite threads: The Women of a Certain Age thread in The Wardrobe, a raucous place bursting with snappy commentary accompanying inspiring photographs of stylish ladies who are getting it right in the second half of life. June has been especially busy in this wonderful thread, and we hope you enjoy your visit as much as we did!


Green Bag Black Skirt

Over in the Bag Showcase, we found a really outstanding thread that we had missed:Manelight’s collection thread. She has paired lower-priced bags like this pretty green Fossil bag with well-chosen wardrobe pieces for unique and beautiful looks. We love when our members inspire us by stepping a little out of the mainstream. (Though we love the mainstream, too!)


Chanel Handbag Collection

Speaking of mainstream bags we love, minigingerbread managed to get all of her Chanel bags to sit still long enough for this beautiful family photo that we had to share with you all. Be sure to catch the close up of the cute little pouch, and its charming story.

Trendiebaggie also shared her bag family this month, and this busy mom is not fooling around – her bags are amazing! We also took a moment to do what PurseBlog team members love almost as much buying ourselves new bags – looking inside YOUR bags! The What’s in Your Chanel thread provides endless entertainment if you love small leather goods and purse goodies, and we know you do! Also, at press time, ilovecocochanel revealed this fantastic new Boy, a must see!


Coach Woven Kristen Bag

In Coach, bags seem to be flying off the shelves and into the closets of our members. This week, in the Your New Coach Mini-Reveal thread, we found a sweet bag find frombuffalochick, and then another! Iluvcoach also added a new Phoebe, and its little friend, too! Elsewhere in Coach, our members are also discussing the latest news about Coach’s restructuring, and what makes a Coach bag classic.

Coach Tag

We also found something very special, as lucky member CoachCruiser shared a rare treasure she found on eBay, and lucky you – you can see the whole bag right here in all its glory! Not to toot our own horn, but the official Coach Fall 2014 Preview thread is one of the hottest in this subforum, and you can join in the conversation any time!

That finishes up our Roundup for the last Friday in June, and we hope you have enjoyed our little romp through the PurseForum. We always love sharing bags and all the other wonderful things our forum has to offer, and we will be back in July with more. In the meantime, have a fabulous summer weekend and enjoy the week ahead!

Gucci Debuts Bright Diamante

Categories:Other Brands

Gucci Bright Diamante Bags (7)

Somehow, Gucci never seems to go wrong with its huge line of handbags. For pre-fall, the brand delved into its vast creative archives to bring back the house’s Diamante leather in an array of bright colors.

Gucci Bright Diamante Leather Top Handle Bag

Gucci Bright Diamante Leather Top Handle Bag $2,100

The Diamante pattern was first created in the 1930s and enjoyed popularity through the 1950s, but it was only recently that creative director Frida Giannini rediscovered the classic design in the archives and resurrected it. The diamond pattern is subtly beautiful, and it adds the perfect amount of dimensionality to the bag. As the bag moves, you can see the varying texture as it hits the light, which is a great touch.

Anna Faris Proves the Louboutin So Kate Pumps are the New Red Carpet Go-To

Categories:Other Brands

Anna Faris wears black Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps (5)

Anna Faris recently attended the LA premiere of “Delivery Man” in a glossy black patent pair of the much-beloved Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps. (If you’ve never heard of that movie, you’re not alone.) Celeb shoe-wearing trends seem to indicate that the So Kates are gradually replacing Louboutin Pigalle Pumps as the favored red carpet Louboutin of choice. (Though I see what those things are doing to Anna Faris’ calves, and I’m afraid.) You can currently purchase a pair of Christian Louboutin So Kates in black suede.

If you’re still not entirely sure what differentiates the So Kates from the Pigalles, Amanda penned this handy comparison post back in August when the So Kates were first introduced. Now that they’re are more widely available than they were a few months ago, I’m dying to hear some reader reviews. Who among you has recently added a pair of So Kates to your shoe collection, and what’s the consensus?
