I was lucky to be included in a video where I got to share my handbag habit with MyHabit, and today I’m able to help you partake in my designer handbag addiction as well. I put together some of my favorite bags, from Chanel to Prada to Fendi, in a special shopping event just for you. (Ok, and me.)

The video was amazing to shoot, and the event helps take my love of designer handbags to the next level.

I’ve been so excited to share our coverage on the iconic Gucci Bamboo, from the history, to the making, to the bags and accessories. We spent time in Italy becoming acquainted with the product and we look forward to bringing you along the journey as we share it with you as well.

Be sure to tune in next week for beautiful images, insightful history, and some special touches you won’t want to miss.

You all know my shopping habit pretty well (clearly it’s handbags), but now you can hear me talk about it with MyHabit. MyHabit is one of my favorite fashion sale sites, and I was thrilled when they asked me to film a video to share my love of handbags with them. I’m in the video alongside some pretty cool people, like fashion designer of WHIT, Whitney Pozgay, and Michael Chernow, founder of The Meatball Shop.

I’ve been meaning to write this love letter for a while, because the truth is, I’m in love. I always liked the Givenchy Antigona bag, I can even venture to say I began to love it, but the clutch speaks to me so much more that my “like” easily turned to full-blown love and it won’t stop. There is nothing extraordinarily special about this clutch, and I know that, but it’s simply perfect in so many ways.

We haven’t been going crazy bombarding you with New York Fashion Week coverage for a very simple reason – we know just the right collections to share that you will undoubtably love, but for the past week we’ve been all over NYC to see the Spring 2014 shows. I’ve seen so many collections I’ve adored, and of course amazing bags. We are just over half way through New York Fashion Week, and through the first of Monday’s shows, these are the 12 best bags thus far.

It happened. I made it through my 20s and today I’ve reached 30 years old. I’m not one to worry about growing older; in fact, I welcome it as with age comes experience and knowledge, or so I hope. My 20s were such an exciting time. I started PurseBlog and PurseForum when I was 21, graduated college, got married, moved to New York and experienced a lot.

After I posted my Celine reveal, I realized I not only love to share the new bags I buy for myself, but also I love to hear about your purchases. This is one of our favorite parts of the PurseForum, but I want to bring that joy over to PurseBlog. Every month we will have a post where you can share your accessories purchases and we will share ours with you too!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love nail art. I’m by no means a nail art guru (in fact, far from it), but over the past year I’ve been able to teach myself to steady my hand and try out some different manicures to accessorize my nails.

This week’s perfect pair comes as the last bit of summer ends.

We know some of you are already back into the fall grind with work or school, but this week is PurseBlog and TalkShoes Summer Break. We are shutting down our computers to take the week off and disperse around the country, from Florida, to Atlanta, to Montauk, to an NYC staycation. We will be bringing you some great stories daily throughout the week, but at a more limited rate.

I spend a ton of time on the PurseForum checking out members bag reveals, and trust me, it’s something you don’t want to miss. Each time a member reveals a new acquisition, it seems the purchase is being undressed, from the ribbon on the box, to the sleeper bag, to finally revealing the new bag itself. I did a little shopping over the weekend, and before I knew it, I was walking out of the Celine store with a new bag.
