National Handbag Day 2014

Our absolute favorite holiday is right around the corner: National Handbag Day! Last year was the first-ever National Handbag Day, and this year we have another great week of celebrating planned. Friday, October 10 is the big day, and we know you’ll want to follow along and join us in the fun we have planned.

Fendi Store Soho (2)

In July, Fendi opened a pop-up store on the corner of Greene and Prince Streets in NYC’s shopping mecca of SoHo. The brand continues to lure in a larger consumer base with its quirky take on bag charms (hello Karlito) while also delivering stunning bags as well.

Best Burgundy Bags for Fall 2014

Fall is upon us, and we love covering the seasonal trends as we see them arise. Amanda already shared 20 burgundy bags to start your fall wardrobe, and today I’m revisiting the subject.

Burgundy bags can be found in almost every designer’s handbag selection for fall, and it doesn’t take much wondering to figure out why.

Chanel Boys Bags Rainbow

The Chanel Boy Bag continues to sell briskly and inspire lust in consumers all over the world, and in response to the demand, Chanel has produced the bag in a wide variety of colors, sizes and materials. You immediately get classic Chanel vibes when you see the Boy Bag, but it’s more casual and approachable than some of the brand’s more traditional offerings.

Hermes Sac a Depeches

When it comes to man bags, it seems there are two major categories: work bags and casual messengers. There are other options here and there, but men have never taken to man bags like women have to our bags, and I don’t see that changing drastically anytime soon.

Chanel Candy Accessories

When Chanel showed its Fall 2014 collection, it was clear Karl Lagerfeld had his mind on food. The collection took place in a fully decked-out Chanel supermarket, and the bags and accessories were quirky and fantastic as we’ve come to expect.

Gucci-Diamante-03

There’s been a big move at PurseBlog that I’m happy to share with you all: After four years full time in New York City, Vlad and I have decided to head back to Florida. South Florida is where we lived before our move to NYC and where I spent most of my years growing up.

Rebecca-Minkoff-SS15-1

It’s truly been a joy to watch my friend Rebecca Minkoff grow over the years. From starting a line with only a few bag designs (like the famed Morning After) to expanding into a well-known brand whose wares include bags, clothing, shoes and jewelry, Rebecca Minkoff has changed before our eyes.

NYFW-SS15-Day-3-1

We’re just about half way through New York Fashion Week, and though it was hot and humid the ladies and gents who were popping out to attend the shows brought out their best bags. Yesterday many of the big names showed including Prabal Gurung, Tibi, Alexander Wang and Hervé Léger by Max Azria.

Chanel Repair

At the end of July, I shared with you that my Chanel bag broke; more specifically, a screw came loose which left the closure plate on the bag dangling. I wanted to resolve this issue right after I wrote about it, but Vlad and I were already in the process of moving to Florida.
