Rebecca Minkoff Customization Project

When we started PurseBlog and PurseForum over ten years ago, the very first designer we met was Rebecca Minkoff. At the time, Rebecca and her team were working out of an apartment below her own place, and the tiny NYC office was filled with boxes and bags from end to end.

Rare Balenciaga Bags

Often when I’ve talked about Balenciaga, the discussion of rare colors and the right season/year/color arises. There is a long thread (dating back to 2006!) on the PurseForum that deals with the rarest Balenciaga bags, which gives great insight into the discussion and reasoning behind which bags are most sought-after.

Mansur Gavriel Restock

We just announced that we’re giving away a Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag and now we also have the exclusive on the upcoming Mansur Gavriel restock.

Mansur Gavriel Excusive Q and A

Since hitting the scene a mere three years ago, Mansur Gavriel has made a name for itself quickly and strongly. Both Amanda and I are major fans of the brand and have a few Mansur Gavriel bags that we carry often and really adore.


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’.
