eBay Handbags August 6

It’s our first roundup of eBay finds for the month of August, and we have some terrific bags for you! We found a beautiful Hermès HAC–the Birkin’s elder cousin, as it were–in a classic pairing of barenia leather and toile. We also have a sharp, timeless Chanel tote, evening bags from Prada and Judith Lieber, plus some surprises. Happy shopping!

Disclaimer: As always, caution is crucial when buying from third party sellers. Although we strive to find the best auctions to feature, we don’t endorse or guarantee any eBay sellers or auctions, and therefore cannot guarantee the authenticity of any particular piece.

Yes, There are Giant Animal Heads in Coach’s New In-Store Campaign

Other Brands

Coach Wild Things Animal Head Campaign

As we all know, Coach is in the middle of a rebranding effort to make itself palatable to a more discerning, higher-spending clientele, and it looks like that transition has now begun in earnest. Although Stuart Vevers’ first Coach collection has yet to start arriving in stores, the brand’sextremely slick ad campaign has already made the rounds, and now we have our first glimpse at the brand’s first in-store installation under its new creative director. It involves giant animal heads.

There’s a lot to love in this campaign–which was shot in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn and includes the images on the site, in-store displays and a short film directed by James Lima–especially if you went through a Donnie Darko phase. When I showed it to the rest of the PurseBlog team and a few friends in the industry to get their initial reactions, they were almost overwhelmingly positive; sure, it’s weird, but it’s weird in a way that you’d never expect of Coach, all while keeping with some of the stylized New York-ness that has characterized much of the company’s branding in recent years. It’s Coach on mescaline.

Perhaps my favorite part of this, which is termed a “window campaign” by the brand, is how matter-of-fact it is. It’s not self-conscious of its giant animal heads, which include a horse, a rabbit and a bird in bright colors. Instead, the models wearing them are filmed and photographed doing the mundanely high-end tasks that contemporary-luxury campaigns often depict, like going to coffee shops and perusing record stores. It’s like Coach is daring you to ask what’s going on with the rabbit and her buddies.

Check out a few screen shots from the film below, and to check out the full thing (plus Coach’s new arrivals), head over to Coach.com now.

Taylor Swift Continues Her Walking Tour of New York with a Prada Bag

Other Brands

Taylor Swift Prada Executive Tote

Our by-the-minute Taylor Swift bag coverage continues this week (of course). If you haven’t been following along, Taylor is now shamelessly baiting New York paps on a daily basis with great bags, shoes and clothes. (OR, she’s just trying to live her life as stylishly as possible, and an army of paps just happen to be following along.) If you know anything about pap life, you probably know that shots of celebs with nice bags or otherwise recognizable clothing sell well, for reasons you can probably guess. Here’s Taylor once again, walking toward or away from activities of an indeterminate nature in New York City, carrying a Prada Executive Tote, which is available in a similar color at Bergdorf Goodman for $2,430.

It seems that everyone’s favorite teen pop-country sensation has finally decided to abandon the whimsical braids and sundresses of yesteryear and embrace garments and accessories with a little more structure and integrity (and much, much higher price tags). We’ve long speculated that Taylor wanted to avoid flaunting high-end products because of her very young fans (unlike her contemporaries Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez), but now it seems all bets are off. There’s a follow-up post to “The Many Bags of Taylor Swift” coming down the pipeline in the very near future, PB readers, but while we all await it with bated breath, tell us: what do you think of Taylor’s style transformation?

PurseForum Roundup: August 1

Other Brands

Hermes Victoria II Bag

Welcome to August’s first edition of the PurseForum Roundup, in which we gather some of the week’s most interesting discussions and most beautiful bags and bring them right over here to share with you. This week, we visited Alexander Wang, where statement hardware is always in fashion, and we also dropped into Hermès, where we found some reveals, of course, and also point you toward help in the pre-loved bag department.


Alexander Wang Grey Rocco bag

Last week we made but a brief stop in Alexander Wang and shared some mesh bags with you all. This week, we went back for a more in-depth visit. We found a wonderful Rocco in Latte with rose gold hardware, which really has a stunning effect when paired with this shade. Congratulations to Nishy on this new addition.

Lovers of small leather goods and jaw-dropping bargains will surely appreciate this reveal: aunique wallet marked so far down at Nordstrom Rack we couldn’t believe our eyes! Luckysacko was in the right place at the right time, congratulations! Jadis4742 added some Wang to her life this summer, too, and waited until her collection was complete (or IS IT?) before sharing not one but three new additions. We love the black with iridescent hardware; what a sharp looking bag! If you are new to the brand, be sure to visit the Reference Library, where we have a wonderful Family Portraits thread with every imaginable AW represented.


Hermes Victoria II Bag

We dropped into Hermès this week, where there is never a shortage of fabulous bags, accessories, scarves or conversations. We knew we would find a gorgeous green in this thread, where GVL shared this brand new Victoria II in malachite, one of the prettiest greens Hermès has ever presented. Iheartorange (and who doesn’t) added another bag to her collection – this lovely Kelly in scrumptious gold.

Hermes Medor Clutch

There are always brilliant reveals in Hermès, and its hard to choose which ones to feature here in the Roundup. On our way out, we spied a thread promising something special, and we were not disappointed. Member pretty99 started her thread wondering whether she should purchase a bag she had been offered. With the help of our Hermès members, she made her decision (by page 2), and we all agree that this lipstick pink Medor clutch is magnificent.

We know that Hermès comes with a hefty price tag, but if you are interested in this design house, you will be happy to know that our members have a very active reseller-feedback thread, as well as lots of great finds in the constantly updated thread dedicated to the resale market. You can also find plenty of other tips on adding Hermès to your collection in our Hermès Shopping subforum.


Manolo Blahnik Swan Pumps

We have been seeing summery sandals daily on the PurseForum and on our sister blog,TalkShoes, so it was quite a treat to see these pretty, sparkly pumps in our Glass Slipper’s threaddedicated to Manolo Blahnik. Stay4b snapped these beauties up at a steal of a deal, and you can bet they will be seeing some good times as the seasons change. SLC Socialite also picked up apair of electric blue pumps at the Barney’s sale, and we cant stop staring at this fantastic color.

The Glass Slipper is home to everything shoe-related at the PurseForum, with the exception of Christian Louboutin, who has a dedicated forum all his own. In the Glass Slipper, we have an ongoing discussion of Charlottle Olympia, Guiseppe Zanotti, Valentino and evenBirkenstocks! This is also the place to post your new shoe purchases, a thread dedicated to fabulous footware of every kind, from the most humble sneakers to the most fabulous heels, like these Louis Vuitton pumps from clu13. 


Valentino Rockstud Dome Bag

Our visit to the Glass Slipper got us thinking about Valentino. We paid a visit to the main Valentino subforum, where we often find reveals of shoes as well, like these classic black Rockstuds pattyui picked up in London.  We also came across this absolutely beautiful tote from berta, who was almost talked out of this purchase. She stuck to her guns, and we are sure glad she did!

We somehow missed tita1992′s March reveal of her new Glam Lock in a color combination that packs plenty of zing. Our members are also discussing serious Valentino matters, like shoe quality, and are lending a hand to goodbrand, who is on the brink of a bootie purchase. Don’t miss the Action Thread to see how our members style their Valentino bags and shoes.


Rebecca Minkoff MAC Tote

We featured Rebecca Minkoff on PurseBlog this week and decided to take a peek into her subforum to see what our members have been finding from this popular designer. We have a new purchases thread underway, and it is already brimming with bags, like this electric blue totefrom Minkette, and this mermaid metallic from rockstarmish. Addictedtoshoppin started a new thread for the wonderful RM Pouches, and jennalovesbags updated her collection thread for us.

Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bag

Don’t miss this thread if you are a fan of the MAC, a favorite of our members as well. Who could resist this fuchsia? Apparently not Cerecita, who was lucky enough to add this to her collection!


Well that winds up this edition of our PurseForum Roundup. We have five glorious Fridays in August, so we will have plenty to share before we ring in September. We hope you have a wonderful summer weekend and look forward to seeing your here with us next week.

How To Get The Best Replica Purses With A Big Discount!

Other Brands

There are special moments in life that need to be shared with friends, otherwise they lose their significance. And this is one of them! My readers are also my friends and I whenever I have something important to tell them, I do it here, on the blog!

Pursevalley.cn review

So this, my girls, is for you! If you ask me, this is the most important news I’ve heard in a while. I just received an email from PurseValley.cn announcing their 10-year anniversary with a big discount, 50% off on all replica purses!

As I always say, besides the replica purses a site has to offer, other important aspects are the services and the return policy. Of course the prices are also important but if it were to choose between a website with cheap designer replica purses and no phone number and a bit more expensive but great replica purses, I would always advise you to go with the second one.

It’s very reassuring for me to know that I can get in touch with the customer support department whenever I want. If I have questions about their replica purses, about my order or if I decide to return something that I bought, it’s important to actually speak with someone.

Anyways, back to the announcement I just made! PurseValley.cn is celebrating their 10-year anniversary and they are offering 50% discount store wide, whether we are talking about handbag designer knockoffs, shoes, watches or accessories! But you should hurry up, this offer is valid just one day! The part in their email that made my day is this: “May you continue to inspire us for many years to come! And may you always remember how much you are needed, respected and valued!” Really touching, guys!

If you know about any other offers of thins kind, please send me an email so I can post it here! We all love cheap designer replica purses and this offers are just what we need to expand our wardrobe with the best replica handbags.

You’ve Never Seen Such A Horrible Fake Givenchy Bag!

Other Brands

I know that it can get frustrating to find a good replica site that has a good return policy, great customer support and amazing handbags. And I also that that during this entire process, you can get scammed or, like in today’s review, you can receive awful handbags.

fallinfashions.com review

fallinfashions.com review

Even though it’s hard, you should try to see the bright side. All these bad experiences will help you become better in spotting a bad replica handbag, no matter the brand. But let’s start with the first step, and that is choosing the right site.

I don’t usually start with a review with a conclusion but this is a special case. Fallinfashions.com is a terrible site, at least for a fake Givenchy bag like the famous Antigona. And here is the review that stands behind my statement.

“My dear Eva,

This is the first time I write on your blog or send an email. I found your site a few weeks ago but it was too late, I already ordered a Givenchy Antigona from Fallinfashions.com. I had no idea what to expect from them because it was my first time ordering from them. I have a few authentic handbags and a few replicas but I don’t own a Givenchy bag.

I know now that I was naive to believe the photos from their site are real and that what I see is what I get! Now I’m trying to return the bag and hopefully everything turns out well. I’ll tell you and your readers if they respect their return policy but so far, they’ve been nice.
I really value your blog and I want to thank you for doing such an awesome work.

My dear, you are right! This must be the worst fake Givenchy bag I’ve seen in a while. It doesn’t even look like it’s make of leather. The brown color is awful, the stitching on the handle is broke and I can go on and on. I had no idea that Fallinfashions.com is such a bad site for Givenchy fake handbags. It’s a really good thing that you decided to return the bag.
