PurseForum Instagram

Social media has taken over our lives; everyone is connected at all times on multiple platforms. I am still an Instagram girl at heart, though–I love updating our accounts @purseblog and @pursesandpaws. Our community on PurseForum has grown drastically over the last 10 years, and while everyone is sharing their latest and greatest purchases on tPF, they are also sharing on social media.

Prada Inside Bag Struzzo Tamaris Pesca Detail 02

Prada has a handful of highly recognizable bags, including its Double Bag (here are the beautiful colors to expect for Fall) and the Lux Tote. There are, of course, plenty of other bags from the brand that are released seasonally, but the Prada Inside Bag, new for Fall 2015, has inspired anticipation that we haven’t seen for Prada in a while.

Vera Bradley Travel Essentials

Vera Bradley is a brand most people are familiar with. While I have a couple Vera Bradley bags for daily use, what I love most from the brand is its travel gear, including large duffle bags, cosmetic cases and beyond.

Dior Grand Sac Diorissimo in Plum

Dior bags get better and better with every season, and after announcing Rihanna as the face of its most recent accessories campaign, the brand’s bag profile is even higher.

One thing I love about Dior is they have eight major bag designs that they stick to and offer lots of options for each style.

Since micro bags became trendy, Fendi has done the best job at making an itsy-bitsy-teenie-weenie bag that people really want. We’ve covered the Fendi Micro Peekaboo plenty of times, and it’s still a favorite of many.

Ferragamo Driver Shoe Grey 1

Ferragamo makes beautiful bags that we cover often, but if you are a shoe lover as well, you might already know that Ferragamo makes great, comfortable shoes. If you ask anyone in the know to recommend a luxury shoe that is won’t kill your feet, you will inevitably hear Ferragamo; that goes for the men’s shoes as well.

Elena Ghisellini Bag 1

To kick off the 4th of July weekend we’re sharing a trio of bags from Italian designer Elena Ghisellini. Before she began her own line, Ghisellini was the accessories designer for Givenchy and was in charge of the creation of the widely popular Nightingale and Pandora bags.

Fendi By The Way Bag Pink Embellished

Fendi released its now-coveted By The Way Bag last year at this time. Fendi has been at the top of the bag world for a little while now, sticking to a handful of great styles and coming up with a different spin on each one every season.

This week on our Picks page, we are all about red, white and blue. With the 4th of July around the corner, we’ve added the perfect white bikini, lash plumping serum and the chicest pair of white Christian Louboutin pumps.

Gucci Disco Bags

Two years ago, I asked you all what you thought of designer bags for children. You shared a wide array of comments, and the resounding theme in the responses was that you should get a designer bag for a kid when they are able to appreciate it.
