If you follow the fashion industry, then you might know that we have an entire culture of fashionistas that garner attention similar to that of A-list celebrities. One of our personal favorites and the industry’s new darling is the cute-as-a-button and always impeccably dressed Mira Duma. Mira is snapped coming and going to every show by every magazine, street style photographer and iPhone-wielder imaginable.

I love Barneys and when the store approached me to be featured in The Window, I was thrilled. Alongside other fashion insiders and great fashion stories, The Window is one of the best behind-the-scenes sites by a retailer I have seen.
I sat down with Barneys to share everything from why I started PurseBlog, to my favorite bags for spring, to the items I would be caught with after a night locked in the store.
I’ve been waiting for a designer to release a great looking glow-in-the-dark bag. Odd, I know, but I always look to my accessories to bring me a feeling of joy and fun, and what’s more fun than a good-looking bag that just so happens to glow in the dark when the lights go off? Leave it to the young and spunky Alexander Wang to give us what we’re looking for by offering glow-in-the-dark versions of a few of his classics, including the coveted Marion crossbody bag.
I know when you hear Tiffany & Co. the first thing that comes to mind is jewelry, not leather goods. But the brand known for the little blue boxes is fast on its way to become known for its big blue boxes as well. After Tiffany tapped established handbag designers Richard Lambertson and John Truex, it became apparent that the brand was ready to make a major splash in the handbag market.
When I first heard Alice and Olivia would be debuting bags, I jumped for joy a little bit. As a long time fan of the brand and a long time fan of Stacey Bendet on Instagram (follow her, she loves rainbows and yoga and is hilarious!), I knew this foray into the handbag world would be a fun one. When peeks of what was to come were leaked on Stacey’s Instagram account, it became clear that we would be seeing everyday bags in an interesting way, with rainbow-embossed snakeskin and black-and-white leather playing a key role.
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, right after I wake up, I immediately refresh Net-A-Porter to see the new arrivals. It has become a personal ritual, and I wouldn’t have it any other way; Net-A-Porter always stocks some of the best accessories and clothing you can find anywhere on the Internet.
We are always sharing our favorite bags and accessories with you guys, but we decided to take it a step further by partnering with Net-A-Porter to create the PurseBlog Net-A-Porter Store, which is a totally shoppable guide to our favorite pieces from one of our favorite online retailers.
As I sit in my office with a beanie, sweater, boots, pants, and scarf on, I feel like Mother Nature is trying to trick me, even though I know spring is on its way. With the new season comes a fresh crop of bags that will help brighten your wardrobe and change the winter blues into something a bit more light and lovely.
Tonight Season 2 of It’s a Brad Brad World kicks off on Bravo, but despite all the hubbub over the new season, the super vivacious Brad Goreski told me he’s not tired; he’s just getting started. Brad has quickly become a fixture in the fashion industry, first known for his previous role as Rachel Zoe’s style director. Even though some people might still associate him with his old boss, it seems as though Brad’s career is expanding by the moment (and we couldn’t be happier.)
“I love being on TV and having the TV show, but there are all the other months of my life where I continue working.”
I had the opportunity to chat with Brad about his show, his life and anything else that came to mind, and the spunky and hunky Brad was just as fun, personable and open as he seems on TV.
Everyone knows the iconic Louis Vuitton Speedy, and everyone also knows that Louis Vuitton updates this coveted classic with each season. For Louis Vuitton Spring 2013, Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs decided to add a geometric note with lots and lots of squares. Checks make a huge appearance, but my attention went to this updated version of the LV classic, which has been dubbed the Louis Vuitton Speedy Cube.
The talk of the town during this year’s Oscars was not some of the nominees you would assume; instead, there was quite a stir over nine-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis. The strong-willed and highly talented youngster hit the red carpet with a memorable smile and probably the most memorable accessory of the night, her custom puppy purse, designed to look like her dog from home.
