9 Things

At first glance, a link between what handbag you choose and how well you endure hot, sticky summer weather seems counterintuitive. You don’t wear a bag, you carry it, so what difference does it make? …

Net-A-Porter never lets me down when it comes to their semi-annual sales. I already scoured the US sale but yesterday the store opened up its International sale. I’ve been searching the site since the sale …

Last week’s weather in New York City was pretty terrible. There was nothing but rain, fog and stifling humidity for days on end, and even when the sun did peek out, it only served to …

Being a mom is a tough, tiring, sometimes-thankless gig. All the way from changing diapers to doing your college-aged kids’ laundry when they come home to visit, moms deserve more credit than they sometimes receive. …

As you may have noticed, we didn’t do any posts about “Coachella style” around here. There are a few reasons for that: First, feathers + fringe + denim cutoffs does not = style. You only …

Friends & Family sales are my favorite kind of sale ever. Instead of picking a group of merchandise from the site and giving it a uniform discount, the retailer hands the pricing gun over to …

Yesterday, Megs mentioned that it’s wedding season and gave us a great rundown of what a bride looking for a traditional feel should carry on her wedding day. I had just started working for PurseBlog …

Wedding season is upon us! Since I grew up in Florida, I didn’t realize how big a deal wedding season was for those living in more temperate climates. There’s a true wedding season outside of the tropics, though, and it is just about to begin. Every bride has her own style and own ideas for the perfect wedding; some prefer a fairytale, some want an outrageous event and others simply want something traditional.

The wedding dress tends to be the most important aspect of every bride’s wardrobe followed closely by her shoes, but I don’t want any bride to forget the importance of a chic handbag. I carried my Hermes Kelly Longue on my wedding day and used it in many of our wedding photos in place of flowers. (Yes, I am that obsessed with bags.)

If you consider your style more traditional, here are nine amazing wedding options for you! (more…)

Winter seems to be playing hide-and-go-seek with those of us in New York; it was a balmy 67 degrees yesterday afternoon while today is back in the 50s, as if Mother Nature is actually toying …

Our friends at Rue La La are ready to delight our closets with an amazing selection of Chanel bags at their Madison Avenue Couture Event. The event includes apparel, jewelry and most importantly, handbags. And the handbags? They are glorious on so many levels. Iconic quilted handbags pepper the boutique including a never before carried Chanel black quilted flap with silver-tone hardware.

As much as I was immediately drawn to the bags, the boucle tweeds and classic jewelry are also eye-catching. My girlfriends and I always joke (and dream) about being the quintessential lady who lunches, and these embellished dresses at 50-80% off are a great way to get started in the Chanel clothing category. I feel a lunch coming on as we speak, in fact.

Though I dream about wearing Chanel head-to-toe daily, I am not at that place yet in my life, which is why I can’t stop going crazy over the handbags, apparel and jewelry Rue La La is offering at this Madison Avenue Couture event. With Classic Flap after Classic Flap along with a plethora of other highly covetable Chanel pieces, this boutique has something for everyone. This event is a great way to get a bag you have been wanting or bag you missed out on for a great price. All the pieces are authentic, pre-owned, vintage and fabulous.
