Our marketing director Hilary and every other May baby has a right to be angry with me. I totally skipped over your birthday month and didn’t give you an assortment of emerald handbags for your birthday gift guide. Somehow, I will make it up to you, but for now let me get back onto track for our June birthday girls.

June’s birthday is Alexandrite, a gem that exhibits a plethora of different colors depending on the viewing direction. For our purposes, it is a purplish hue, and for that I found nine bags for our June Birthday Gift Gift. I love a good purple bag as I consider the color beautiful while also being wearable year-round and neutral enough to work with most outfits.

    Love the Balenciaga bag! Funny that they named it after an amino acid though.

      Glycine means wisteria in French too.

    Great bags as usual, I always like this feature. I want to see a suede PS1 irl. They seem beautiful and I recall one of the designers saying the suede was his favorite iteration of the bag.

    The PS1 is stunning. And I also like the Rebecca Minkoff and the Versace handbag (and Versace is not often on my list).

    I need that Balenciaga. Badly. Plus I’m a scientist and require a bag named after an amino acid, lol.

    Coincidentally I had ordered a bubblegum pink Rebecca Minkoff M.A.B before this feature came out as a birthday gift to myself! June babies rock!
