Want It Wednesday October 23

Personally, I think that right now is a very exciting time of year to want things. Not only are the stores filled with lots of new things, but fall and winter require so much stuff. Sweaters and shirts for layering, cold-weather accessories, shoes for different types of weather and precipitation, all-leather everything, coats and jackets – the options are just endless, on top of all the handbags and accessories that we generally want.

National Handbag Day Instagram

Whew, we made it! National Handbag Day was so exciting we can barely put it into words. We had so much fun sifting through the thousands (yes, thousands!) of Instagrams you all posted about how you were spending your day celebrating.

Tomorrow is National Handbag Day, and the entire PurseBlog team is so thrilled to celebrate with you! We’ve been sharing some of the best stories about handbags with you this week, including the story behind PurseBlog, my bags around the world and a fun post calling out the the best handbag name-checks in musical history.

Oscar de la Renta Mini Madison Shoulder Bag

Oscar de la Renta is known for so many things – his incredible evening gowns, his flair for the dramatic, his skill with embellishment that is unparalleled in the fashion industry. Over the last couple of seasons, though, de la Renta has also quietly been becoming a source for luxurious, detailed handbags that will fit right in on the arms of the impeccably dressed women who wear his clothing (or, at the very least, dream of wearing it).

30-for-30

It happened. I made it through my 20s and today I’ve reached 30 years old. I’m not one to worry about growing older; in fact, I welcome it as with age comes experience and knowledge, or so I hope. My 20s were such an exciting time.

Purseblog Labor Day

We’re taking our last day of PurseBlog Summer Break to celebrate Labor Day with family and friends, and we hope you’re doing the same. See you back here tomorrow for all handbag and accessories news fit to print!

PurseBlog Summer Break

We know some of you are already back into the fall grind with work or school, but this week is PurseBlog and TalkShoes Summer Break. We are shutting down our computers to take the week off and disperse around the country, from Florida, to Atlanta, to Montauk, to an NYC staycation.

PurseBlog and TalkShoes on Instagram

We’re so happy the weekend is finally here! That means long brunches and laying in the park celebrating long summer days. If you love Instagram as much as we do, don’t miss out at a look inside our world – make sure to follow PurseBlog and TalkShoes on Instagram to get a look at the bags and shoes we love along with everything else.

4th of July Handbags

We hope you have a happy, safe, and fun 4th of July! We will be taking off today and tomorrow to enjoy the day with friends and family, and of course to celebrate our nation’s independence. So pick out your best red, white and blue accessories and eat all your favorite summer foods – we will see you back on Monday.

Shoe Haul

Happy Friday! We wrap up this busy June week with some Coach reveals, an amazing find in the Bag Showcase subforum, a trip to the Playground and a long overdue visit to the Beauty Bar. Join us for all this and more in this week’s PurseForum Roundup!
