A have a confession: I am a Karminite. I stumbled upon Karmin Covers a couple years ago on YouTube and immediately became hooked. The YouTube sensation then became a mainstream sensation, and they are blowing it out of the water, song after song, collaboration after collaboration.


Welcome to the PurseForum Weekly Roundup! We’re excited to whisk you into the weekend with our newly customary look back at what’s been going on at the PurseForum this week. We know that the Forum can seem kind of big and overwhelming to newcomers, but there’s so much information, friendship and support to be found within it that we hope these choice tidbits encourage you to venture over and poke around.


Ok, Purseblog readers – impromptu pop quiz! We have a mammoth-sized mystery bag on our hands. Here’s Jessica Chastain, goading us with her fabulous designer find of unknown origin. The handles remind us of Givenchy. The silhouette reminds us of Dolce & Gabbana.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull Bags

One of the most interesting parts of this job is seeing how people arrive at our site. You guys get here in a zillion different ways, but one of the most persistent is your interest in the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, in all of its many sizes and incarnations.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Goodbye Columbus Mini Crossbody

We’re in the thick of the holiday season, and for a lot of us, things are getting pretty stressful.

I will never forget the first time I saw a Alexander Wang Printed Lizard Emile Satchel. I first saw someone toting around this satchel on the subway in Soho, and I will admit I was not familiar with any of Alexander Wang’s designs at the time.

Hilary Duff carries an Yves Saint Laurent Cabas ChYc

There is SO a “Many Bags of Hilary Duff” post coming down the pipeline.
