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!

Happy Memorial Day from PurseBlog

PurseBlog HQ is empty today so that we may spend the holiday celebrating and remembering with our family and friends, but we wanted to take a moment to celebrate with you as well. Let us know what your big plans are for the day in the comments!

http://www.purseblog.com/link.php?id=7605If you didn’t know about the Kate Spade Surprise Sale before now, don’t worry – the fine folks at the brand have been so benevolent as to extend the markdowns, which go as high as 75% off regular retail – for a few more hours.

Cambridge Satchel Pastel Bags

I’ve had a long obsession with Cambridge Satchel Company and the brand’s now-iconic satchel bags. From the first season that these bags were released, the trend caught on so much so that you couldn’t walk through fashion week tents without seeing one Cambridge Satchel bag after the next.

Kate Spade Road Trip License Plate Box Clutch

When you live in a particularly intense place – New York with its overcrowding, LA with its smog, Atlanta or DC with their endless traffic – the lure of a road trip can be enormous, especially when spring gets into full swing and the weather by itself is enough to make you want to leave the house.

Mulberry Flower Mini Leather Shoulder Bag

Even though we’re back in the 50s today, it neared 70 degrees in New York City yesterday, so I can confidently say that it’s time to start bringing out all of our spring finery, even if it’s in defiance of the actual weather outside.
