Six months ago, it occurred to us that there should be an official day for handbag lovers to celebrate their obsession. After all, if there’s National Grilled Cheese Day, why not a day for bags? We went about the process of officially registering the occasion and creating our own holiday, and we’re happy to announce that this Thursday, October 10 is the first annual National Handbag Day. We’ve got some fun things planned for the days leading up to the 10th, both here and on Twitter and Instagram, and we hope you’ll check back throughout the week to celebrate with us. Our festivities will include a very special giveaway with two of our favorite sites, The Zoe Report and POPSUGAR, among many other things.
If you’d like to take your declaration of handbag love to the next level and perhaps be featured on the blog, we’ve got an opportunity for you to do just that. Instagram a photo showing your handbag love with the hashtag #NationalHandbagDay, and your photo could be featured on the blog! Get creative – show us your favorite bag, your full collection, your rarest find, anything that celebrates your obsession!
