Bags under $1000

During college, I logged a few years working at the local Best Buy, so you could say that I’m intimately familiar with the ins and outs of the holiday shopping season. We all know about the first two phases – Black Friday, followed by regular gift shopping – but the third is less talked-about.

December Birthday Gift Guide

It’s the last month of the year, and that means the last round of birthdays for 2012 as well. I have many friends who celebrate their birthdays in December (including our very own Amanda) and I’ve always admired their birthstone, blue topaz, because it’s feminine and looks good on everyone.

Shiny Bags

The holidays are great for so many and varied reasons. The food (unless you’re on a diet), the family time (unless your relatives are crazypants), the fun holiday cocktails (unless you’re in AA) – it’s all so fun! (Maybe.) Of course, around here, we know at least one thing about the holiday’s that’s fun without caveat or exception: the sparkly little handbags that you get to carry to holiday parties from now until New Year’s.

Red White Blue Bags

Every four years, Americans have the privilege to get out and vote for whom they believe should be their president. We never delve into the realm of politics here, but we do hope you all take the opportunity to vote. If you didn’t go yet, stop by your polling place after work to cast your vote.

November Birthday Gift Guide Citrine Handbags

This is probably the fastest moving year of my life or so it seems. November has arrived and that means the Holidays are upon us. Every month I feel like I say the same thing, but really, how did this happen?

Bags on RueLaLa October 28

Some of our absolute favorite designers are also the most difficult to shop, whether you’re online or in-store. It’s hard to talk so much about Hermes and Chanel while not always having a place to tell you where to track down a bag of your own.

Halloween Designer Handbags

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I typically don’t dress up anymore, but I love decorating our apartment and of course eating all the candy (ok that is my favorite part). This year, I have costumes for Vlad and I to put on when we hand out candy to our trick-or-treaters.

October Birthday Gift Guide Opal Handbags

Hey October babies, this is your month! And here I am trying to put together the best opal bags as birthday ideas, but it’s tough. Really tough. Opal is a stone that changes color in light and glimmers and shines non-stop, which makes finding any type of handbag to coincide quite difficult.

Best Burgundy Bags for Fall

We already told you that oxblood is the new black for fall, and everyone is continuing to talk about the color burgundy. I can’t stop obsessing – it’s just such a rich, lush color that goes with practically everything. Want to wear blacks with it?

All Saints Fall Picks

If you’re a regular PurseBlog reader, you know that Megs, Hilary and I all have really different, distinct tastes in accessories and clothing. Megs tends to lean toward clothes with a hippie vibe, Hilary likes clean-lined, modern neutrals and I like lots of industrial black mixed with occasional bold prints and colors.
