Happy Friday, Roundup readers! How is your October going so far? We hope you are enjoying autumn; we certainly are. This busy season is marching along, and our members are keeping pace by shopping and chatting about the latest bags, shoes, and accessories on the PurseForum.


Once the air turns crisp, everyone gets excited to pull out their old fall favorites (or stock up on new fall favorites), and apparently this sort of seasonal nostalgia extends to Céline bags. Just think, in mere months our photo service will be awash in bare-legged, sandal-wearing celebrities in the snow.

Today we hosted our first-ever live Q & A on PurseBlog. We are going to make this a reccurring thing we do because so many of you participated, so thank you for coming by with your questions!


As you all know by now, our third annual National Handbag Day is this Saturday, October 10, and we’re celebrating all week with fun stuff like handbag histories, our favorite PurseForum threads and closer looks at what our bag choices say about us.


Paris Fashion Week is, in some ways, the Super Bowl of fashion. Its attendees have played hard all season to get there, and when they’ve arrived, they have to play harder still to come out on top.


Louis Vuitton is, by necessity, a show full of handbags every season. Creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere does far more that’s just as worthy of note, of course, but LV is, first and foremost, a brand concerned with its leather goods.

PurseForum Best Threads

When we began the PurseForum over ten years ago, I truly had no idea it would grow to the size it is today. With just under 500,000 registered members, tPF is one of the most active forums online.

Ask-Megs-and-AmandaNational Handbag Day is October 10, and all this week, we’ve got very special stuff planned to celebrate. Tomorrow, October 8, we’ll be hosting a live Q&A period with Megs and Amanda; if you have questions about choosing a new bag, personal style, PurseBlog life or pretty much anything else, just drop by the site at 1 p.m. eastern Thursday and ask away! They’ll be here to offer expert opinions and an inside look at working in fashion. Mark your calendars!


We’re big fans of self-care, whether that means a solo trip to the movies or a calming nightly skincare ritual. As you might expect, though, handbags are our favorite way to indulge ourselves. Retail therapy is totally a real thing, and when it comes time to shop, you know which section we’re headed to first.


When I heard that Chanel‘s Spring 2016 show was set to be airport-themed, I couldn’t help but smile; it was one of those (somewhat frequent) moments where I feel like Karl Lagerfeld personally cares about my happiness.
