Purse Forum Roundup 14


Happy mid-July! Summer is flying by, and it’s already time for another roundup of the week’s happenings at the PurseForum. This week, we bring you some instant reveals from around the forum, and take a closer look at Bottega Veneta, Dior, Coach, and more. Thanks for joining us!

New sunglasses for summer! How many of us kick off summer with a shiny new pair of shades? Frienziedhandbag lived up to her name this week in Bottega Veneta and picked up several wonderful items to add to her collection. We love the new sunnies, and ooooh, the case! Visit this thread to see more, and be sure to appreciate the exquisite leather detailing on the glasses. We also are happy to share in frienzied’s good news, a reminder that PurseForum is much more than bags.

Ksuromax revealed this stunning Petro Cabat this week; this classic bag is one of our favorites. Be sure not to miss Orlie’s new addition, too,a delicious shoulder bag in glimmering coffee-colored leather, selected with the help of our fabulous ladies and gents in the BV forum.

Miss_Dawn shared this terrific Gucci Disco last month, and we missed it, so it was fortunate that it popped up on page one again today. The bicolor construction gives this bag a fresh take on an already perfect look.  Huskylady17 also went with a shoulder bag style for her latest purchase, picked up with assistance of a helpful sales associate on the lookout for great deals.

MaegUT07 visited Rome recently, and of course had to bring home a little something from the Gucci ancestral homeland. This is the Signature Padlock, a new classic for Gucci and a gorgeous souvenir! By the way, someone has been bumping up instant reveals in Gucci, so if you are in the mood to see some new bags in a hurry, we have you covered.

Coach’s collaborations have been getting a lot of attention, and the pull toward these fun bags is undeniable. K.E.W. felt the attraction for the second time and snapped up this black tote from the Keith Haring/Coach collection. K.E.W. included plenty of close-up shots to give us an idea of the interior space and construction details of her new bag, so be sure to visit her thread for the full story on her new purchase. We have more discussion on this rather under-the-radar collection now, but if you are interested, contact your sales associate soon.

It’s summer sale time at Coach (and all over), so be sure you take in the sights—maybe you will find something that you cannot live without. Jennstall made a couple of purchases, and shared them with us here.

Last up from Coach, we love the absolute simplicity of this smooshy new Bandit Hobo from Teagaggle. The leather looks absolutely scrumptious, and the style is eternally useful.

This week in Dior, our members were on the road and took some time out to share with us what they have picked up on their trips. In New York, fashion_junky visited the flagship boutique and brought home this Lady Dior in a subtle and beautiful color aptly called Pistacio. This picture-heavy thread will give you a great idea of what this bag is all about, including the extra-special shoulder strap.

Another happy travel-meets-bag story comes to us from Spain and our member raspberrypink, who is delighted with her new scarlet Lady Dior. You can visit her thread to see more photographs, including one with the studded version of this bag for comparison.

Also in Dior, Vespa_Girl has created a super thread on her experience having her bag professionally dyed. This is a terrifying process to some of us purse lovers, but in Vespa’s case, the results certainly tell a story of success. This thread is worth bookmarking, because who among us does not have a bag that needs some TLC?

Ok, let’s close with some random reveals from around the forum this week…

This City bag is fabulous as decor, too! This is Vanessa84s first Balenciaga—congratulations on a marvelous selection for your first.

This is from a while back, but it was so adorable we couldn’t resist. Designers are showering us with tiny bags, and their functionality is always a question for lovers of big bags. We found this little gem in a discussion on Mansur Gavriel’s entry into the mini bag game, and our members are finding them very functional.

Nana61256 got a sweet Little Babe from Kate Spade and shared in the Show us Your Kate Spade bags thread.

We have always loved the look of Proenza Schouler’s PS1 for a go-to to take to work or on the road. Ltbag’s brand new large PS1 is just the ticket.

Admittedly, when we think of Burberry, we don’t think of bags, but this is a lovely, understated design that looks like a great wardrobe staple. Congratulations greenapple03 on your first Burberry bag.

That’s all for today, friends. We are so grateful to you for spending time with us, and we hope to see you right here next week for more. Have a delightful weekend, enjoy yourselves thoroughly, and we wish you a great week ahead—perhaps some honey toast with ice cream for Sunday breakfast will kick that off nicely? You can thank GeorgiaLavender in the I Ate This thread The Kitchen for that eyepopping suggestion. Be well!

Chanel and Louis Vuitton Named Top Brands on Social Media


IMG_5734 (1)

In the bustling digital era, fashion brands are fighting to earn a spot on the top of the social media ladder. As consumers become more attached to their screens, brands are making it a bigger priority to establish themselves on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (read: Top 10 Most Digitally Savvy Brands)
So, who is truly a leader in the social media world?

According to WWD, Insightpool, a marketing platform that gathers social data, observed the profiles of top fashion brands from January 2017 to April 2017 in an attempt to learn more about the online fashion landscape. Insightpool tracked the overall audience engagement of these brands through keywords, comments, and tags.

The study concluded that Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Christian Siriano are the top three social media leaders in the digital world at the moment. In terms of followers, here’s what the numbers show us:

  • Chanel – 20.1 million Instagram followers and 12.8 million Twitter followers
  • Louis Vuitton – 16.1 million Instagram followers and 6.11 million Twitter followers
  • Christian Siriano – 643,000 Instagram followers and 372,000 Twitter followers

While this hierarchy interesting, it’s not all about numbers. Gaining more followers can help companies raise brand awareness and inform consumers about new products or trends. Most consumers these days make big shopping decisions from the content they see on social media and general web searches. (Read: Handbag Shopping – Does More Browsing Increase Satisfaction)

Wedding dresses today come in a wide range of styles. Do you prefer a long, flowing gown, or a short, flirty one? Long sleeves, or no sleeves? Lots of lace, or timelessly smooth satin? Modern bridal gowns come in styles to suit every preference — and every body type.

Naturally, you want to look your best on your wedding day, but nothing can ruin your look — and your wedding photos — faster than the wrong gown. It’s so important to choose a gown that flatters your figure. If you want to pick the right gown, you’ll need to understand which styles of wedding gown work best for your body type.


A-line wedding dresses look good on almost any body type. That’s why they’re so popular. They’re especially flattering on pear-shaped women, since they accentuate the bust and hide the larger hips and thighs. If you’re looking for flattering plus size wedding dresses, you may find an A-line gown flattering. You may also want to try a gown with an empire waistline that begins just beneath the bust and flows downward in an A-line silhouette. If you’re plus-sized and busty, an A-line or empire dress may flatter your décolletage; but if you’d prefer something a little less revealing, you can always add a modest lace panel to the bust line, or look for an A-line dress with a higher cut at the bust.

If you’re plus-sized and apple-shaped, you may want to look for a shorter A-line dress that flatters your bust and midsection while allowing you to show off your slim legs. Look for an A-line gown with a belt or cinch at the waist and a textured bodice that will draw the eye upward. A deep V neckline will also flatter your midsection.


With their full, fluffy skirts, cinched waists, and fitted bodices, ball gowns are perfect for brides with boyish, rectangular body shapes. The curvy shape of the dress will make your body seem curvier, too. Look for a dress with a ruched or otherwise decorated bodice. Extra fabric up top will complete the illusion of curves, especially if it is a strapless dress that limits your choice of bust-enhancing bras.


A mermaid gown hugs the figure until about the knee, then flares out into a skirt reminiscent of a mermaid’s tail. Mermaid-style wedding gowns are an excellent choice for women with hourglass figures, since this style of gown showcases your curves. Choose a gown with a scooped neckline, for a more natural and flattering décolletage which is neither too revealing nor too shelf-like. But avoid gowns with shiny fabric, ruching, or other ornamentation on the bodice, as these will make your already-generous bust look even bigger.


The trumpet gown is similar to the mermaid gown, but with a wider flare to the skirt. While form-fitting, the trumpet gown also offers more freedom of movement to the hourglass-shaped bride who wants to show off her curves. Trumpet gowns can also help a petite bride look taller.


A sleek and form-fitting style, the sheath dress follows the body’s natural curves. It can be flattering for women with hourglass-shaped bodies, who want to accentuate their curves. It’s also a good choice for petite women, as it can add the illusion of height, and it’s a great style for any bride who wants to show off a trim midsection. A sheath dress in a wispy fabric with a skirt cut on the bias can make a rectangle-shaped bride look curvier, too.


With a flare beginning at the hips, the drop waist style is a good choice for women with hourglass-shaped bodies and trim midsections. Combined with a sleek bodice and scooped neckline, this style of gown can show off your curves without being too restrictive.


While the classic wedding gown has a long, flowing skirt and even a train, gowns with short skirts are all the rage right now, and these gowns can look fabulous on the right bride. No matter your dress size, a wedding gown with a short skirt can be the right choice to show off shapely calves. If you’re tall, however, a long, flowing skirt will match your natural, statuesque proportions. A long-sleeved dress also works well for a tall bride. Choose a gown with sleeves that go below the wrist, so that you don’t look like you’re dressing up in your mother’s clothes. See-through lace sleeves can lend a timeless elegance to your gown, without entirely sacrificing the graceful look of a sleeveless gown.

When choosing a wedding dress, it’s vital that you consider your body type and shape. Whether you’re petite or tall, apple- or hourglass-shaped, the right dress can make you look gorgeous on your wedding day.
