Hermes Birkin Hero Image

Happy Friday, PurseForum Roundup readers!  We are finishing out May in high style as we visit Chanel and Hermès and share a few other choice reveals with you from around the PurseForum. We also wanted to catch you up with our Celebrity forum, which has been incredibly busy this week. Come on along with us for our last Roundup of May!  

Chanel Buckle

In Chanel this week, the Vintage Thread is back on top, and we enjoyed flipping through its virtual pages to see the terrific bags and bargains our members have found. Be sure to check outthis great find from Helen84, plus a magnificent caviar jumbo from psulion09. This thread makes for some interesting reading, and it’s wonderful to see the vintage bags finding new homes. By the way, December was a particularly excellent month for reveals, so be sure to click back if you are a fan of vintage Chanel.

Chanel Ballet Flats

Also in Chanel, MaryJoe84 shared a double reveal with us and included lovely shots of her new flats and bag. In another testament to the swiftness of time’s passage, the May Purchases thread is about to wrap up, so be sure and stop by – there are plenty of bags and accessories to covet.

Highlights include Luxi_max’s gorgeous fuchsia WOC (wallet on a chain), Nikki528′sbirthday gifts, and ChristChrist’s knockout metallic green Boy, a bag that is seriously not to be missed! Remember, our Chanel subforum is full of reference threads to help with a purchase – perhaps we will see YOUR new Chanel purchase in our June purchases thread!

Hermes Birkin and Scarf

It’s been a while since we visited the Scarf of the Day thread in Hermès, where the theme for each week is posted here and our members share their beautiful scarves and shawls accordingly.Birkinmary’s contribution to “The Oldest Scarf You Own” week earlier this month caught our eye – her splendid Birkin and stunning Le Clerc scarf from 1946 are absolutely a match made in heaven.

PursePassionLV revealed a new scarf and bags this week, and dessert1st also had quite a time revealing her new haul of orange boxes. If like us, you never tire of seeing bags in action, Hermes boasts quite a collection of action threads, including Socialites, Stars and Public figures,ladies and gents from Asia, and of course our very own members!    We have some more quick reveals for you this week – This is our chance to share the eyepopping goodies we find in our visits to the PurseForums huge selection of conversations.

David Yurman Bracelets

In the Jewelry Box, we found pinkny’s collection of David Yurman in the thread dedicated to this creative and accessible designer. While in the Jewelry Box, be sure to stop by the fascinating and friendly Jade Thread, and of course the Jewelry of the Day thread to see more of our members’ treasures in action.  

Saint Laurent Cabas

In Saint Laurent, angelxchild wasted no time in getting the wrapping off her new Cabas Tote,and what a perfect bag it is! The Arty Rings thread is still going strong, so if you are a fan of statement jewelry, drop in and see the latest acquisitions and modeling shots from our stylish members!

Christian Louboutin Cutout Pumps

In the Show off your New Shoes thread in Christian Louboutin, we spotted a summery pair of Duvettes in a pretty pairing of coral and ivory courtesy of sophe. Also in Louboutin, we have an interesting thread underway entitled “What would you have done differently” – this promising thread has some interesting observations from our seasoned shoppers, sure to help anyone dipping their toes into the CL waters for the first time.

 Dinner with a View

Our Celebrity subforums are among the busiest on the PurseForum. This week, Celebrity News and Gossip has been abuzz with, what else, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and their over-the-top nuptials. From the buildup in Paris to the wind-down in Ireland, our members have been following along and, of course, adding their own commentary to the worldwide press.

We are also breaking down the latest news on Will and Kate, Beyonce and Jay Z, Alexander Skarsgard and so many more. If you are in the mood for some celebrity dish, we have you covered! If you prefer style to gossip, we have a special subforum dedicated to Celebrity Style,where we have left no one out. And if we did, feel free to start a style thread for your favorite celebrity – there’s room for everyone! (Our accompanying photograph comes from thePlayground, courtesy of ninakt and the Random Picture thread.)

Well, that finishes up May, Roundup readers. We will see you right back here in June. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend and week ahead from all of us. We really appreciate you taking the time to visit us here at the PurseBlog, and look forward every Friday to sharing some of the great bags and interesting conversations happing over at the PurseForum! See you soon!

PurseForum Roundup – 0706

Categories:Other Brands

Gucci Haul

It’s June! I know we have been ticking off the weeks since the dawn of the PurseForum Roundup, but it still seems unbelievable that it’s already June. This week, we dropped intoHome and Garden and the Wardrobe and found some sure signs of summer. We also stumbled upon several Gucci reveals and visited Make-Up and Beauty to see what our members have been bringing home. We hope you will join us as we bring you all of this and more!


Our Home and Garden subforum is always busy this time of year – our members are getting busy in their gardens and giving us all a peek at what they’re growing. We have lots of green thumbs on the PurseForum, and the Garden Photographs thread always has a lovely selection of beautiful shots they have generously shared with us. This week, Myrkur harvested some lavender, and Sweatpea83 showed off her basil, geraniums and coreopsis. 

There are quite a few new additions to the Things You Love Around Your Home thread, and if you are house hunting for your imaginary life, try the Most Expensive Homes in the U.S. thread for some fun. Elsewhere in the Playground, the Up To The Minute subforum has been extremely busy this week, so do drop in and join in the conversations on a wide range of today’s topics. We also have a special section dedicated to just Good News – a great place to relax and enjoy some uplifting and light fare.

Coach Bag

In Coach this week, one lucky member got a pair of Smythes in Rose Petal and Milk. So far our Coach members are loving both of KMiller_41′s bags, but she’s still considering her purchase. What do you think? Moolio showed off a gorgeous pair of Shawna heels, and frivofrugalistapicked up a stunning blue Georgie.

We are really loving the Coach leathers at the moment, and it seems our PurseForum members certainly share the sentiment. Sarah03 also posted a new bag, a delightful minty fresh duffle at a steal of a price. We found plenty of Non-Coach purchases in this special thread, too. our members have been very busy, so a hearty congratulations to all our happy Coachies who successfully shopped this week!

Chanel Pink Cosmetics

Make-up, Nail Care and The Beauty Bar “make up” our busy Make-Up and Beauty Forum. Nail Care has everything you need to know about prettying up your fingers and toes, including swatch threads for every brand imaginable.

In our Beauty Bar, the Recent Purchases thread showcases the latest goodies our members have scored at their favorite beauty haunts. This week, JA_UK shared her impressive Chanel haul, and Kailuagal let us have a peek at her Sephora bounty, which was equally impressive. There are swaps about to get underway, so be sure to check back into the Beauty Bar for theSwap Box and Random Act of Kindness reveal threads, coming soon.

Outfit Photo

We love to look in the Outfit of the Day threads (OOTD) in our designer forums, but particularly love peeking into the Wardrobe because anything goes in its OOTD thread. We loved this look for summer from our member EllaPretty and were also happy to stumble on chic willowslooking dapper in advance of his very special celebration. Also in the Wardrobe, a great conversation on sourcing linen dresses for summer tops the charts, right along with our Zarathread.

Giant Ring

Whether it applies to you or not, our Women of a Certain Age thread is absolutely not to be missed, and June has been incredibly busy, starting with this great photo from divanata. Our fashionable WOACAs are a lively bunch who love to share stories and inspirational outfits and accessories, making this thread one of the best on the Forum.

Gucci Haul

Reveals were the order of the day in Gucci at press time, so we thought we would share some of them, starting with this nice selection of purchases from StylegeekPrincessairie61 found lots of answers in the affirmative when she opened her thread with the question “Anyone Still Awake?” – we sure were and loved her quick reveal of sale sunnies and shoes.

The hottest topic in Gucci this week, of course, has been the sales, and the Sale Thread is bubbling over with excited members unwrapping their bargain finds, including PJMAC’s boots, shoes, bag and wallet.  Sariwoo got her very first Gucci this week, a classic tote that will undoubtedly get lots of use. We also wanted to congratulate More4Me, who selected a classic bamboo top for her first bag from Gucci.


Closing out this week, we wanted to share this lovely shot from our Animalicious subforum, from a thread intriguingly entitled “I’ve sold all my Louis.” Our members love purses, and so do we, but sometimes, as one of our members said in this very thread, “A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.” Our most sincere congratulations to our lovely member Serina and her new riding partner, and we wish you many happy hours in the saddle!

Thank you for joining us for June’s first Roundup. We hope you summer is off to a great start, and appreciate that you chose to spend some time with us this week. We want to wish you a happy week ahead and a fantastic weekend. Next week you will find us right her ready with another collection of the PurseForum’s most interesting conversations. Happy Friday!

Audrey Tautou Looks Adorable in Red Prada Sandals

Categories:Other Brands

Audrey Tautou Prada Ankle Strap Sandals

Here’s actress Audrey Tautou, looking exceedingly French and adorable at the New York premiere of her new film, Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo. Her bright red heels are the Prada Ankle Strap Sandals, from Prada’s latest season. Audrey also wore these same Pradas to the premiere of Emma Stone’s new movie earlier this week. You can get a similar style of Pradasandals in blue patent leathe.

Audrey Tatou fans may be surprised to learn that Amelie, one of my all-time favorite films (and probably yours too), came out a whopping thirteen years ago. Mood Indigo looks to be another French film in a similar vein, and it might just make your summer. Or, at the very least, it might provide the whimsical French antidote to the eternal downer that was The Fault in Our Stars. Fingers crossed.

Reese Witherspoon Leaves the Office with a Maiyet Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Reese Witherspoon Maiyet Peyton Bag

Here’s Reese Witherspoon, leaving her office in LA carrying a bright orange Maiyet Peyton Bag with white gussets. (What exactly does Reese do in her office all day, I wonder?) Notice how Reese has artfully matched her lip color to the exact hue of her Maiyet. You can find an all-black version of this bag with a croc-embossed calfhair front panel (yes, croc-embossed calfhair! Madness!) 

As our regular readers well know, Reese has a most exquisite handbag collection that easily trumps the collection of most other celebs on the planet. She gets a lot of points for quantity and diversity, mind you, but she wins based on the sheer infallibility of her bag choices. You can take the tour of Reese’s bag collection in “The Many Bags of Reese Witherspoon” and “The Many Bags of Reese Witherspoon, Part 2.” You can also take a peek at her similarly amazing shoe collection in “The Many Shoes of Reese Witherspoon” on our sister site

Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs In The Grain Satchel

Price: $560 via Neiman Marcus

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Marc by Marc Jacobs is in the middle of an image revamp, and as a result, the bags are starting to skew noticeably more sleek and sophisticated than they have in recent seasons. Luckily, they’re still just as affordable as ever.

PurseForum Roundup – 0701

Categories:Other Brands

Dog with Chanel Box

We’re back again for another edition of the PurseForum Roundup. We are here every Friday to bring you a selection of the best conversations and handbags and accessories popping up on our boards. This week, we head back to two of our favorite destinations – The Jewelry Box andThe Kitchen.

But we didn’t linger long, as bags in splendid, saturated colors were popping up in every subforum. We found glorious blues in Bottega Veneta and Givenchy,, plus so much more. Come join us for this week’s best!

Charm Bracelet

We can’t seem to say away from the Jewelry Box these days. This week, we discovered some new finished projects in the Pandora thread. PurseForum member Stumbeline has been hard at work on her pretty green-themed bracelet, and vannarene shared her intricate creation, complete with evil eye charm. 

We also learned about the shrinking diamonds phenomenon, or rather, learned the name of the phenomenon we are quite familiar with! Cartier lovers continue to keep the Love Braceletthread at the top of the page, and our thread on Jewelry Buying Resources proves once again that PurseForum members love to help each other shop.

Givenchy Antigona Blue

Every subforum seems to have beautiful blue reveals this week, like this Givenchy Antigonafrom sugarcoatd, who was thrilled to share her very first Givenchy purchase. She definitely started out on the right foot!

Hellokittie has started a thread asking for help deciding on her Antigona purchase, so if this bag strikes your fancy, this conversation may help you in your decision, too. LH405 was lucky enough to have three bags to reveal this week, which are perhaps more food for thought for your next bag purchase. We have loads of advice and reveal threads right now in Givenchy; this brand has really hit its stride and our PurseForum members have definitely taken notice!

Bottega Veneta Wallet

Here is a whirlwind tour of some more of the fabulous reveals we found this week around the forum: Men’s Tumbler knocked it out of the park in the color category with this wallet from Bottega Veneta in signal blue, our new favorite color ever. Also in Bottega Veneta, sale purchases are starting to show up, hopefully reveals will not be too far behind. Visit this threadfor the latest on our members’ sale finds.

Proenza Schouler PS1 and Wallet

In Proenza Schouler, Smiley13tree also wowed us with color this week, as she revealed hernew PS1 and included a family as a bonus! Also in Proenza Schouler, the sale thread is still a hot topic as members snatch up fantastic deals, like this wallet on a chain from mytnguyen26.Nothing beats a new bag, except a new bag at a deep discount!

Mulberry Bags

A super sale is underway on Mulberry bags as well, and our members are wasting no time jumping on the bandwagon. We found another double reveal from thelittlestar, and seriously – we can’t keep our eyes off of that beautiful green tote. Handbagaholic found a beautiful jacket, and aerinha selected a fuchsia Lily to add to her collection.

Lots of conversations are underway in Mulberry this week; members are looking for opinionsand posting gorgeous action shots. This is a fun, conversational and friendly subforum full of lovely ladies and wonderful bags – we hope you will drop in and join in!


It’s been a while since we pulled up a chair in The Kitchen, and we missed a lot in the I Ate This thread. We, and that includes you, have a lot of catching up to to with our five-star PurseForum foodies. These triple salted caramel cupcakes from ninjanna are pretty darned impressive, particularly since she made them herself.

There are also some mouth-watering desserts, a German food extravaganza, and a peek atninja_please’s sausage-making party! Are you in the mood for something and you don’t know what? Maybe this thread will help – we discovered a few cravings we didn’t know we had! (key lime pie, anyone?)

Also in the Playground, there is always a buzz in our Television and Cinema subforum. This weekend’s season finale of Game of Thrones, has some of us giddy with excitement (and fear); we have quite a lively discussion group (no book spoilers) for this blockbuster!

If bloodspilling is not your thing, bring your cupbearer over to the Real Housewives threads (we have several), or get some ideas from one of our absolute favorite conversations – Netflix: What are You Watching? Couch potatoes always find good company at the PurseForum!

Dog with Chanel Box

Last but not least, at presstime, we found cdinh87 irresistible reveal in Chanel, which you will not want to miss. Look for more Chanel bags next week, right here!

Well, that does it for this week! We only sample a fraction of the subforums and their conversations, and we hope that you will spend some time exploring other areas of the PurseForum. The bags are wonderful, as are the accessories and shoes, but our members are what really make our community sing. We look forward to sharing more next week, and in the meantime, have a great midsummer weekend – we will look for you right here next Friday!
