New York City is always brimming with openings, new stores and fashion innovation, and in December, Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo’s famed Dover Street Market opened its doors in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Manhattan. Dover Street Market has filled its space with high-end, avant guarde fashion and design shops, including a pop-up store from Louis Vuitton on the ground floor.

As Amanda has already shared (and if you follow any fashion-related handles on social media, you already know), New York Fashion Week started yesterday. Industry folk, celebrities, bloggers, and just about every other fashion lover have descended upon Lincoln Center and other venues around New York City to preview the Fall 2014 collections.

On PurseForum, there are threads in each designer section in which members share their purchases for the month. I don’t buy a new bag every month, even though many believe I do (and I wish I did), but watching others unwrap their newest goodies is the next best thing.

I remember an era in my life where yellow gold was so out of style. No one wanted to wear yellow gold and it became associated with gaudiness, but right now yellow gold is taking center stage once again and I’m thrilled about it.

On behalf of the entire PurseBlog team, Vlad and I want to say thank you for all of your support in 2013! We had an amazing year and it’s because of you. We have some big projects for 2014 that we know you will love and of course will bring you the greatest in the designer handbag and accessory world.

The web is a buzz over Kim Kardashian’s Christmas gift from her fiance Kanye West. Kim Kardashian proudly showed off her bag on Instagram, which looks to be an older Hermes HAC, that Kanye West had painted by renowned artist George Condo, an American contemporary visual artist.

The late Thanksgiving went and messed up everyone’s holiday season, from interfering with Hanukah to making the shopping season quite a bit shorter. However, Christmas is on our doorstep and I have a wish list that would make both Santa and my loved ones absolutely cringe.

Christmas is right around the corner and tonight Vlad and I plan to bundle up on the couch, watch our favorite holiday movies, and drink hot cocoa. My Hermes Birkin is feeling festive as well and played dress up as Rudolph the red nosed Hermes.

One of the breakout bags of 2013 is the Fendi 2Jours Tote, a style that is simply stunning and classic in every way. While Fendi offers a wide range of a sizes, colors and materials for the 2Jours, you can’t underestimate the allure of perfect black bag, and the Fendi 2Jours in black comes close to perfection.

Let’s be honest: whether you get along with your in-laws or not, shopping for them is hard. Do you pick something that just makes sense for the woman of the house, since women are usually in charge of the gift-buying and exchanging, or do you try to find something to make the man of the house happy as well?
