Jade Handbags

If only all of our parents owned awesome, exotic bag lines for us to work at when we graduate college; we should all be so lucky.

We started Purse Blog in the beginning of 2005. Can you believe that? I had no idea what I was doing. One day Vlad set up and site and told me, “Ok, now you can write about bags”. I laugh and almost cringe at my first posts, they are totally different from where we are now.

Clutches have long been an obsession of mine. A small handbag which fits in your hand and speaks to you and others. Clutches are like a little piece of fashion heaven.
