Vlad and I were planning a trip to NYC this week, but after a freak accident last weekend (I tripped over uneven sidewalk while walking the dog and fractured my collarbone), we decided to stay in Florida while I get better.
[Editor’s Note: This week, our staff is on PurseBlog Summer Break, so we’re posting a reduced schedule of new features and updated favorites. Below, check out one of our favorite posts from 2014, updated with a bunch of new exotic bags.]
Friday is National Handbag Day (did we already mention that?), and that means that our week is even more dedicated to handbags than it usually is.
On Saturday, famed French champagne house Veuve Clicquot hosted the 7th annual Veueve Clicquot Polo Classic at Liberty State Park, overlooking the Manhattan skyline. The Classic has become synonymous with impeccable style, and Vlad and I were fortunate to attend the event and scope out the best bags and style of the attendees.
This is it, the moment we’ve been waiting for. You guys have winnowed down our PurseBlog March Madness field to your two favorite bag designers, and now we’ve locked Chanel and Celine into a winner-take-all cage match (or maybe a West Side Story-style knife fight; the mental image is up to you), and only one winner can emerge.
You voted (and voted some more), and now we’ve narrowed our PurseBlog March Madness field down to your four favorite designers – Hermes, Chanel, Celine and Louis Vuitton. Just like in the real Final Four, these two matchups of handbag heavyweights are sure to be particularly contentious, so every vote counts.
You might have heard a whisper here and there about some sort of basketball tournament that’s starting this week. Most members of the PurseBlog team went to football schools, so while this may not be our time of year in a sporting sense, we believe in substituting handbags for literally anything in which we are not naturally interested.
