Dior Cuir Cannage Privee Perfume

I spent a lot of years on our PurseForum before I officially joined the company, and during that time I saw hundreds, if not thousands, of bag lovers reference the divine smell of a new bag’s leather. Fashion is an experience that usually only involves one or two senses, but luxury leather has an instantly recognizable stink, and to love bags is to love that smell.

Summer Beauty Essentials

I can still barely believe that I looked up yesterday and we were well into mid-June; it hasn’t been especially hot in New York (thank god), so it’s been easy to slide by in a spring frame of mind well into June.

Humidity-Proof Eye Makeup

There are two kinds of people in this world: people who have oily eyelids, and people who have no idea how an eyelid can be oily. If you’re in the second group, talk amongst yourselves – this post isn’t for you.

Bright Nail Polishes

One of my favorite ways to end a week is to stop for a manicure and pedicure on the way home from work. Something about spending half an hour in a chair, thinking and doing absolutely nothing, just feels like the right way to transition into a weekend.

Memorial Day Sunscreen

Although everyone on the PurseBlog team is obviously a big fan of leather, we’re not such big fans of turning into leather. With that in mind, we thought the Friday before summer’s unofficial kickoff might be the right time to share some of our favorite sunscreen picks for all occasions.

Spring Lip Products

This weekend is probably going to be the most gorgeous and perfect one we have all year in New York City, and I can already feel the color start to seep into my normally dark outfits. A big way that happens for me is through lip color, and with the new season, I find myself wanting to try all kinds of different textures that don’t find their way into my normal repertoire.

Dry Skin Essentials

The first thing that it’s important for you to know about this post is that I have really, really dry skin. I’m 28, and people always say that skin gets drier as you age, so I shudder to think where I’m headed from here.

PurseBlog Beauty Sunless Tanner

I get a sense that a lot of women feel weird about being pale when the weather outside starts to get warm. I don’t ever feel weird about being pale, mostly because I have no idea what it’s like to be not-pale, but, you know, I’m a good listener.

Pastel Nail Polish

I walk through Grand Central Terminal twice a day, five days a week, and during that portion of my commute, I have a weird little opportunity to take stock of what an enormous swath of New York City is wearing. No matter what the weather, almost everyone’s wearing something dark, year-round.

Bright Spring Lipstick

For all the writing I do about style, color and accessorizing, I’m not particularly good at adding anything to my personal wardrobe but black, grey and silver. One notable exception to that rule, though, is lipstick; I rarely buy any lip color that wouldn’t be accurately described as “aggressive,” and I’m a big advocate for pushing outside of one’s makeup comfort zone.
