I’ve always been extremely fond of the Louis Vuitton SC Bag. Designed by filmmaker Sofia Coppola in collaboration with Marc Jacobs during his tenure at Vuitton, the bag is rendered in soft calfskin, generally in a solid, neutral shade, and finished with little in the way of hardware, beyond a metal padlock.
The simple design and small shape of a clutch lend themselves to all manner of artistic expression, and yet so frequently, that meager bag real estate is overwhelmed by logos. On the flip side, of course, you have your customizable Edie Parkers, your little Alexander McQueen skulls and your iconic Judith Leiber creations.
I’ve been having a thing for pink recently. I always link hues of pink but I’m not one of those girls that deems pink my color. Sure, I have a few pink bags but I don’t own pink coats or pants and am not overly girly in that way.
Around the PurseBlog offices, we spend an inordinate amount of time poring over photos of celebs and their favorite handbags, and over time, one thing has become apparent: famous people really, really love Chanel bags. Non-famous people do too, of course, but those photos are harder to come by.
I’ve not been posting much, and it’s because another major change has been going on. As many of you know Vlad and I spend most of our time in South Florida. Zika virus has been impacting the South Florida area with local cases that started to spring up, and while I’m not someone who typically worries much, Zika does worry me since I’m pregnant.

It wasn’t so long ago that $1,500 was a sweet spot for designer bags. In the mid-2000s, sough-after bags like the Chloé Paddington retailed for prices near that magic number, and even as recently as 2010, the Céline Luggage Tote debuted at $1,750.
