PurseForum Roundup – April 22

Categories:Other Brands

Who is ready for another weekend? We certainly are, and we’re glad you elected to kick off the weekend with another edition of the PurseForum Roundup. This week, spring came to Mulberry, we caught up with some burning questions in the Question of the Week subforum and more.


Have you discovered our Question of the Week subforum? This relatively new feature of the PurseForum holds the answers to all of our burning questions, like “What is the Last Handbag You Bought” (answered beautifully by Dextersmom with this Balenciaga Metal Plate City), “Which of Your Bags Gets You the Most Compliments,” and the bittersweet “What’s the Bag that Got Away?”


In Mulberry this week, Bromley shared a pretty purchase with our Mulberry fans, who certainly appreciated the pop of color; visit here to see what was in the bag! Buttonneux also got a colorful new bag and treated us to a family photo in her reveal thread. 


Our Mulberry ladies are loving the spring Mulberry Bags and Flowers thread, a happy destination full of eye-popping bags and lovely gardens. This charming bag belongs to Loveheart, who also loves daffodils, which are the first spring bulbs to appear in many parts of the United States. This thread will brighten your day, that we promise!


How is this for a pop of color? We found this little gem in the Non-Mulberry Purchases thread. These threads can be found in most all of our designer subforums, and we love seeing the variety of bags and accessories we find when our members confess to cheating on their favorite designers. This Liberty wallet belongs to MinLolipop, and it looks like we may be seeing a tote to follow, so keep your eyes on this thread to see what else makes an appearance.


In Hermès, the “cheating on the brand” theme shifts slightly as our members share their “non Hermès indulgences.” For amozo, this recently meant sharing her Karlito charm right along with her stunning Birkin and card case.


Bag lovers know what the Orange Box means, because it always holds something special inside. This week, we found a teeny weeny Hermès Evelyn, one of the brand’s oldest designs from way back when it specialized primarily in equestrian items. Visit jw10029’s reveal thread for all the details of her new bag and the rest of her Hermès bag family.


We found another bag accessory from amozo’s collection that we wanted to share: this time, a strap from Fendi pairs perfectly and adds a bit of fun to this classic Evelyn. We dug this up in the Hermès Riding in the Passenger Seat thread, which never disappoints.


This fabulous Saint Laurent clutch popped up in YSL this week, and we must congratulate maianh_96 on a prefect choice for her first bag from Saint Laurent, though it will always be Yves Saint Laurent to us.


Bagnshoes5 is looking for help deciding which of these three bags to add to her collection. We love a collaborative decision, and there is apparently still time for all of us to weigh in right here. What is your favorite? We are partial to the YSL in this case, though the Gucci is a nice take on the classic.

The WOC or wallet on a chain is an indispensable bag, and an entry-level option for lots of us trying out a new brand. This thread in YSL is a nice comparison between WOCs from Chanel and YSL. If this wardrobe staple is on your wish list, this is the place to get to know more!


Sad16480 must not be sad now, because these two new Coach Rogues are just gorgeous! This bag is really making waves on the PurseForum, and many of our Coach members are going Rogue; check out the teal beauty from loco4coco and this classic saddle tan Rogue from Teagaggle. Of course, there are plenty more bags to see in Coach,like the bevy of bags in the Spring 2016 PCE thread – still going strong!


Also, a belated Happy Birthday to CoachCruiser, who has wonderful taste and picked up two terrific bags to celebrate her special day. That purple lining is just splendid!


That’s it for us. Doutzen’s picture from the Newest Shoe Purchases got us thinking: it’s time for new shoes! So, off we go.

Have a great week and thank you for stopping by. We will see you again next Friday, and remember, if by any chance you have plans this weekend to check out the season premiere of Game of Thrones, be assured that ourSeason 6 thread is already under way. See you next week!

Update – Spring-Summer 2016 Womens Chanel Collection

Categories:Other Brands


Just when you thought you’ve already seen everything Chanel had to offer as far as their bags from their S/S16 collection is concerned, I got news for you. You haven’t.

Besides the ones you saw (and bought) at the #ChanelxPedderonScotts pop-up which has since ended, there are also these pieces that weren’t available then but you can now find at Chanel’s own boutiques at Marina Bay Sands and Ngee Ann City. What I would refer to as the more ‘classic’ bags, they are less runway trend-oriented and more, can I say, bags you can use for a really long time to come.

First up, a selection of Boy Chanel bags (shown above) that include the one in lambskin that’s embellished with the most delicate of floral embroidery (25 cm by 14.5 cm), as well as a pair that come with alternating strips of both grained and suede calfskin. Available in Black or White, they come in 2 sizes and are priced atSGD7420 (28 cm by 17.5 cm) and SGD6850 (25 cm by 14.5 cm) respectively.


More Boy Chanel boys, but this time in a fancy combination of fabric, mesh and resin for a bag that’s also fresher/lighter/younger. Priced at SGD4260 for the smaller ones that measures 20 cm by 12 cm, it also comes in a larger size (25 cm by 14.5 cm) which retails for SGD4630.


Rounding up the selection, the smaller Vanity Case (21 cm by 16 cm) that comes in a lovely Beige and retails for SGD5590. Then there’s the mini luggage minaudière which comes with an actual retractable top handle and movable wheels. Adorable much really.

Last but not least, a pair of Classic Flap bags that come styled a tad differently. More elongated than your usual Classic Flap pieces, they resemble messengers, especially with the metal chain on leather sling straps. Available in 2 sizes in grained calfskin, they measure 32 cm by 17 cm and 26 cm by 15 cm respectively, and price wise, retail for SGD4710 and SGD4390 apiece. In other words, if you’re keen on this style, I believe they are also priced way lower than regular CF bags which makes them a good buy. Because I would.

Bagaholicboy News #286 – Mansur Gavriel Now Available At Pedder On Scotts!

Categories:Other Brands


Yes, you read the title right, the ever-elusive Mansur Gavriel is now available at our very own Pedder on Scotts, and while they don’t have the full range of buckets as yet, they have enough to make all of you girls out there very, very happy. And while there’s really no need to tell you why you should get one and why they are so desirable (if you must know, just follow this link), this is what you need to know.

Pedder on Scotts has 3 styles available for purchase now, the Mini Bucket inBlack/Dolly (SGD860, see above), and the Bucket in Black with silver lining (SGD1040) and in a combination I’ve never seen before, a canvas body finished with a black leather base that’s priced at SGD920. Yes, still rather affordably priced and forever stylish so head down to Pedder on Scotts at Scotts Square or On Pedder at Ngee Ann City stat before they are all gone.

One more thing, if nothing catches your eye now, ask to see the new colours/styles for F/W16 because they’ll also take pre-orders now for those bags if you are keen. #happyshopping #goodthingsmustshare
