Happy Thanksgiving 2015

We are taking today to spend time with our loved ones and celebrate all we have to be thankful for. I feel very lucky to have all of you come back daily to be a part of our accessory loving world.


Bag: Loewe Elephant Wallet

Price: $380 via Net-a-Porter

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: With over 160 years of expertise in leather accessories, Loewe used beautiful techniques to fold this wallet into an elephant. With the holidays approaching, what better white elephant gift than a pink leather elephant?


I love a good bag collection, and the young Jenner sisters both have quite the extensive closet. I fell hard for Kylie Jenner’s Chanel Iridescent Boy Bag, and since the Kardashian-Jenners star in so many photos from the photo agency we work with, I’m constantly seeing what they’re carrying.

Van Dutch X Prive Porter Birkin Boat

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show was a couple weekends ago, and since Fort Lauderdale calls itself the “Yachting Capital of the World,” the best yachts lined the area’s many local waterways for the occasion. Vlad and I love the water, but I am not a huge boat lover; I get easily seasick and end up trying to find my way off the boat.

Rebecca Minkoff Customization Project

When we started PurseBlog and PurseForum over ten years ago, the very first designer we met was Rebecca Minkoff. At the time, Rebecca and her team were working out of an apartment below her own place, and the tiny NYC office was filled with boxes and bags from end to end.

Coach Link Messenger Bag and Boys Jacket

From the moment Stuart Vevers took the helm at Coach as the new creative director, there was an immediate impact. I’ve loved seeing the changes take place and Stuart has revamped the brand and brought a freshness that was needed.

Kenneth Cole Perfect Pairs

At PurseBlog, we spend most of our time talking about premier designer bags and accessories. There are plenty of contemporary brands we cover as well, but sometimes major brands at great price points slip by our coverage, and that includes Kenneth Cole.

Bottega Veneta Pink Clutches

Two of the bags that mean the most to me in my collection are my special order Bottega Veneta Knot Clutches. Not only are both of my bags incredibly rare (Bottega Veneta made a small number of them for a group of PurseForum members), but they are totally stunning.

Elizabeth and James Cynnie Nano Shearling Bag

We feature bag deals every Friday finding the best bags marked down on the web. But there are many bags that aren’t on sale, they are just well-priced and designed nicely so we call these a best bet.

Chanel Iridescent Boy Bag Kylie Jenner

Before I even kick this off, I want to start by saying I know many of you don’t like the Kardashian-Jenner clan. It’s not that I personally love them, but I don’t hate them either, and the ladies have some amazing handbags; for our purposes, that means they’re a natural fit for PurseBlog.
