PurseForum Roundup – August 22

Other Brands

Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag

Happy Happy Friday! Whether your week was excellent or awful, it’s time bid it farewell and say hello to the weekend, which includes another edition of the PurseForum Roundup! Sorry we missed you last week, but we are happy to be back on track with plenty of beautiful bags and more.


Flower Arrangement

We made a couple of quick stops in the Playground and found some absolutely magnificent bouquets in Home and Garden’s new Flower Arrangements thread, where our members show off their blossoming new floral skills. We could not believe how talented they all are, even though some are just beginning to stretch their wings at this hobby. Luv Birkin is among the newbies, and she put together the brilliant arrangement above. We also dropped intoUp to the Minute, where discussions of all the major headlines (and some minor ones) are the order of the day.


Multicolor Celine Luggage Tote

Speaking of flowers, how about this Céline Bicolor Luggage featuring luscious orchid?!PoisonIvy looks forward to using this bag in the fall, and we hope we will see some modeling shots when temperatures cool off a bit. Lyonexpat also selected from the purple range for her new Trapeze. 

Tanya1729 also got her her first Céline this week, and fans of the brand will enjoy this reveal for its clear pictures of the bag’s scrumptious leather. Capucine picked up a pretty new Luggageas well; it’s a classic combination with style for days, and Capucine is pleased as can be!


Christian Dior Miss Dior Bag

The PurseForum’s Christian Dior fans seem to have a real knack for photographing their bags and accessories. This week we caught a look at the pretty and photogenic Promenade Pouch on a chain Roku picked up (at a steal of a deal). Roku’s reveal comes with a spectacular family photo that will have you pondering your next small bag purchase!

Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag

Also, what a fabulous Lady Dior! NancyFancy picked up this beauty and a Promenade Pouch right along with it. We can see why it was love at first sight, and you will definitely want to take a look at these two together.


Christian Louboutin Rouge Nail Polish

Is it as wonderful as it looks? Does it match? What do our members think of the new Christian Louboutin polish? This line has inarguably made quite an entrance, and of course our Christian Louboutin members wasted no time in taking the plunge. In her “Unboxing” thread, ichellereviews this polish and shows us if it is indeed a perfect match to the famous red soles. I bet you can guess the results.

Christian Louboutin Pumps

If you love reveals, you will love the Show Off your New Shoes thread, where Christian Louboutin fans pop in to unwrap their latest purchases. August has been busy, and when we dropped in, we found ChristChrist’s new shoes and they are fabulous! Carya also picked uptwo pair of Loubies, this time in pink tones. Fans of fun mustn’t miss these Geo multi pumps–saartje102 also includes some fun family photos, too!


Mulberry Bayswater bag

Mulberry fans and Roundup readers know we love to spend some time with the lovely ladies of Mulberry and their gorgeous bags. Snailpolish revealed her first Mulberry, and we love this classic, elegant, neutral color. Changingwoman also revealed first Mulberry – a chocolate ivy Bayswater - and took us on a delightful walk through the woods at the same time.


Bottega Veneta Hobo

We always know that when indiaink reveals a bag in Bottega Veneta, it is going to be elegant and amazing. This Sunrise Veneta is very special indeed, and it’s in incredible vintage condition.Khanji showed off her new bag, a must-see Veneta in rosa shock, and it’s a bag that we very much hope to see in an action thread soon!

Bottega Veneta Bracelets

Normally we turn to the Jewelry Box for bracelet layering and stacking, but this week we found a great little stack in BV, courtesy of the lovely Mousse.


That does it for this week, Roundup readers! Thank you so much for spending a bit of your time with us each week. We hope you have a terrific weekend and week a head, and we look forward to seeing you right back here soon!

Rihanna Doubles Up on Dior Bags for No Appreciable Reason

Other Brands

Rihanna Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag Christian Dior Addict Tote

Here’s Rihanna, leaving lunch at Da Silvano in NYC (a restaurant she seems particularly fond of), carrying both a pastel blue Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag and a pink Christian Dior Addict Tote. Apparently she carried both, exactly like that, throughout the entire day. Oh, Ri-Ri! The sum total contents of both bags was probably an iPhone and some gum, which just makes us like her more, somehow.

If you want to peruse the rest of Rihanna’s incredibly expansive designer handbag collection, you should absolutely check out “The Many Bags of Rihanna” and “The Many Bags of Rihanna, Part 2″. And if that doesn’t quench your thirst for all things Rihanna, you can also swing by our sister site Shoes and check out “The Many Shoes of Rihanna” over at Shoes.

The Many Bags of Chloe Moretz

Other Brands

The Many Bags of Chloe Grace Moretz

Chloe Moretz isn’t our youngest Many Bags subject, but she’s close. The 17-year-old actress is beat out only by 16-year-old Elle Fanning, and their two handbag collections definitely have some overlap. Namely, both ingenues are beloved by a select group of high-end European brands, which affords them lots of Paris Fashion Week appearances and rare handbags in their closets. Below, check out what Chloe’s been carrying since she arrived on the Hollywood scene.

Prada is the Latest Brand to Court the Affections of Cat Ladies

Other Brands

Prada Mink Fur Cat Pochette

Prada’s handbags tend to be overwhelmingly staid; the brand has positioned itself, season after season, as the source for work-appropriate power bags for women with corner offices (or corner office aspirations), and although Miuccia allows for an artistic departure here and there, whimsy is usually not her stock in trade. With that in mind, I have no explanation for the Prada Mink Fur Cat Pochette.

Kitschy, literal bags are a huge trend right now (as is weirdness in general, and as are cats), and Prada will bow to pretty much any accessories trend that becomes strong enough, even if it isn’t totally on brand. (Gotta sell bags, after all.) This cat’s jeweled eyes and nose relate the clutch back to Prada’s visual signatures for accessories, but other than that, it just doesn’t feel like much of a Prada bag; if you had told me it was Charlotte Olympia, I’d have believed you without question, and that’s a brand with which Prada’s general aesthetic just doesn’t overlap. That’s not necessarily a complaint–the bag is super cute.

Prada’s previous ventures into literalness that haven’t been either purely artistic or plainly political have generally involved very small accessories, like teddy bear bag charms. As much as I love Prada’s general handbag aesthetic, it’s never bad to see a brand have a little bit of fun. Apparently, I’m not alone in this approval – the bag sold out at Bergdorf Goodman in a matter of days.

Want It Wednesday: Mini Bags Aren’t Just for Summer

Other Brands

Want It Wednesday Mini Bags

Mini bags are most often associated with warm weather; after all, who doesn’t want her hands free during the season’s outdoor activities? They’re just as useful during the fall, though, especially when coat weather comes around and regular shoulder bags compete with your outerwear for shoulder real estate. Now that basically every popular bag comes in a mini size, along with all the bags that were designed to be mini from the beginning, your choices are vast no matter the season. For this edition of Want It Wednesday, the team has enumerated its favorites below.
