Mothers Day Gifts

Face it: we’ve now entered Mother’s Day gift crunch time, wherein you try to surreptitiously find out what mom likes these days and pray that whatever store carries it also offers expedited shipping so that you don’t feel like a disappointment of a child when Sunday rolls around.

Portero Mothers Day Gifts

Mother’s Day can be an extremely tough gift-giving occasion, especially when shopping for your own mother. What do you get for a woman who’s well established in her life, has grown children and who you’ve already given dozens of gifts for Mother’s Days, birthdays and Christmases or Hanukahs in the past?

Emerald Bags

Happy May! We are already a few days in, but so far, May has gotten off to a great start with the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo. And for all you birthday girls, your birthstone is the lovely emerald and this color looks amazing on handbags.

April Birthday Gift Guide 2013

I wish it were an April Fool’s joke that April is already here, but it’s not. 2013 is flying by, and while I sometimes wish it would slow down, I’m also ready for Mother Nature to bring on spring and warm weather, please!

March Birthday Gift Guide Handbags

March is one of my favorite birthday months because it’s Vlad’s birthday, and I love my friends’ and family’s birthdays as much, if not more, than my own. I always try to find the best gift for others, and although making this guide isn’t going to help me pick a gift for Vlad, it may help you pick something for your March birthday friends.

February Purple Bags

February is one of the busiest months I will experience this entire year, from moving into a new office (YAY!) to Fashion Week, this month is jam packed. I don’t want to leave out our birthday girls who celebrate a February birthday however, so here is the post you are expecting.

January Birthday Gift Guide 2013

I love a new year, it means a fresh start. I’m just finishing up putting all my gifts away and reorganizing my closet, but for some people, January means their birthday. I feel a little bad for those folks, mostly because it seems like their birthdays are an afterthought to the holidays.

Gifts for the Paranoid

Calling all my paranoid sisters out there, this gift guide is for you! Don’t be bashful, we all get a little nervous at times, and whether it be about our personal safety or personal hygiene or ability to text non-stop. I must admit I’ve always run a little more on the anxious side, and I like to prepare for a variety of contigencies.

Hilary-Wish-List

When Amanda mentioned that she and Megs were doing wish lists for PurseBlog and asked me to partake, it was a no brainer. We’ve spent the last two months staring at the best luxury items on the web to prepare for our holiday coverage, along with being fashion fanatics ourselves, so naturally everyone on the team has found themselves coveting a few items we’d really, really like to be surprised with.

Megs Christmas Wishlist

Truth be told, my wish list grows every single day; when I open my computer or walk around NYC, it’s super easy to find something I would absolutely love to have. What can I say, I really love gifts! But I wanted to put together a sweet and condensed list for you all to see what I am hoping I’ll find under the tree this year.
