As we recently announced, we’ve partnered with The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse to help raise awareness about and aid victims of domestic and financial abuse. Last week at The Plaza Hotel, we joined The Allstate Foundation, 2015 Purple Purse ambassador Kerry Washington and handbag designer Dee Ocleppo to celebrate the cause and catch a glimpse of the new bag.

Pierre Hardy West Village-1

In 1999, Pierre Hardy was created, starting with women’s shoes and following in 2006 with the introduction of handbags. Since then, the brand has made waves in the accessories world, adding a modern, geometric twist to the sometimes staid worlds of designer handbags and shoes and created a cult following in the process.


Today, we’re excited to announce our participation in a very important cause. Megs and PurseBlog are part of the 2015 AllState Foundation Purple Purse PURSEonal Voices network, which means we’re one of a handful of sites supporting the campaign’s efforts to spread awareness and assist victims of domestic violence and financial abuse.

Bagercise with Rachel Robinson

Many of you know the story of Vlad and me; we met in college while we were on swimming scholarships for The Ohio State University and started PurseBlog and PurseForum then. Athletics was a huge part of our lives and though our competitive swimming days are over, we still like to keep in shape.

Goyard New York City Store-1

Goyard is one of few brands that has both a long, storied history and a sense of mystery about it. Until recently, the only place to purchase Goyard in New York City was at small boutiques in Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman, but the brand has a long history with NYC.


Our friends at Bergdorf Goodman know a thing or two about the best things in life: handbags and dogs. Once we got chatting we knew a collaboration was in order and to celebrate our love of dogs and designer handbags, we partnered with Bergdorf Goodman on a series aptly named ‘Girl’s Best Friend’.

We’ve previously discussed my love for the teeny tiny Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag, and I’m not the only one experiencing micro bag obsession. named the micro bag the It Bag of 2015, and countless stars have been spotted carrying these tiny bags by themselves or as bag charms.

PurseBlog Rue La La Boutique

As most of us do, I have a slew of sites that I check regularly. Many revolve around shopping, and one of my favorite, daily go-to sites is Rue La La. I use Rue regularly to grow my collection of bags (like my latest Givenchy Antigona), but also for shoes, clothing and home decor, all at a healthy discount.

Bonhams Designer Handbag Auction

The resale market for rare designer bags is hotter than ever, but what’s often lost in the news stories about the ways those bags change hands are the stories of the bags themselves. British auction house Bonhams keeps those personal tales of shopping triumph in mind when sourcing fine handbags and accessories like the ones in its latest auction, set to begin November 10 in Los Angeles.

Christie's Fall New York Accessories Auction

Now that the chill is in the air to stay, it’s time to start thinking about fall in earnest: fall fashion, fall colors and definitely fall bags. If you’ve been looking to add something very special to your collection for the new season, you’re in luck.
