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. Vogue.com 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.
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.
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.
Every member of the PurseBlog staff has counted themselves as residents of New York City at one point or another, and that means that we all appreciate a tote bag that’s both stylish and functional. For our fourth National Handbag Day handbag reveal, we’re proud to present a bag that’s just that: the Diane von Furstenberg Large Sutra Ready to Go Fringe Tote.
MICHAEL Michael Kors is among the most classic of American handbag brands; its simple, sporty, luxurious silhouettes are beloved by fashion lovers all over the country. Today, as we count down to National Handbag Day, we’re proud to showcase the MICHAEL Michael Kors Susannah Quilted Bucket Bag, available through our NHD partner, Bloomingdale’s.
When Matthew Rubinger launched the luxury accessories category at Heritage Auctions in 2010, the New York City resident was only just out of Vanderbilt University. During his tenure at Heritage as Director for Luxury Accessories, the pre-owned luxury handbag business has exploded both at live auctions and online, landing Rubinger on Forbes’ “30 Under 30″ list for 2014, as well as on CNN and The Wall Street Journal.
When our friends at Net-A-Porter reached out to see if we loved Loewe bags as much as they do, I nearly jumped on my chair, Tom Cruise-style, to yell out “YES!” Loewe is a brand I’ve always loved even though it’s tricky to track down in the US, but that will all change.
