Coach is always ahead of the curve, partnering with various industry leaders to bring us something special year-round, not just during the holiday season. But the brand’s latest partnership with Rachel Zoe and music duo Karmin has me truly excited. For its Holiday 2012 digital program, Coach pulled out all the stops and brought together the pop sensation Karmin to sing a high-energy version of “Sleigh Ride,” exclusively for Coach. The music video features Karmin’s Amy and Nick styled in Coach looks by everyone’s favorite fashion star, Rachel Zoe.

Karmin keeps it real with a muscial style that was previously absent in the industry. With Nick’s tender voice and Amy’s uncanny ability to rap, the duo has everyone talking. On November 28th, the song will be available for free download on, and the official music video will go live that same day, paired with a boutique of Karmin’s favorite holiday items. (more…)

Ladies and gents, the time has come: we have ourselves a winner. As many of you know, we partnered with our fabulous friends at PopSugar, Moda Operandi and Shop Style to give all you handbag fanatics the opportunity to win a vintage 35cm Navy Hermes Birkin. The entries poured in, the giveaway came to a close and a winner was randomly selected and contacted.

A huge congrats goes to Abby G. from Haverytown, PA – the beloved Birkin is now hers.

For the rest of you out there, fret not, we have some other great giveaways up our sleeves. Stay tuned!

We love partnering with our friends at PopSugar! This time, nothing will help get you through your mid-week hump better than some really fun news. PopSugar has put together these amazing monthly Must Have boxes and is offering them to the PurseBlog family at a discounted price… or free, if you’re lucky!

Each month, subscribers receive a PopSugar box filled with monthly favorites. When you open up your box, not only will you find all of those unexpected but completely coveted goodies, but also a note from Lisa Sugar, Editor-In-Chief, explaining why each one of the goodies was picked for that month.

It gets better! By teaming up with PopSugar, we can offer some amazing deals for the PurseBlog family. While we can’t share what is in the box, we can tell you that the retail value of the products is well over $100 each month. Want to hear how you can snag this great deal at a discounted price, or even better yet, win one? Interested? See the details after the jump! (more…)

We’ve been doing everything in our power to keep this secret just that – a secret – but we can’t keep this to ourselves anymore.

On Monday, August 6th, we are partnering with PopSugar, Moda Operandi and ShopStyle for a jaw-dropping, heart-stopping giveaway. While we can’t tell you what we will be giving away just yet, we can tell you it is something you simply do not want to miss. From the iconic orange sleeper in the image here, we’re sure you are excited as we are!

Now that you know to tune in on Monday for the big reveal, any ideas of what might be in store?

Stay tuned in order to find out how you can enter to win! (more…)

We’re obviously big fans of online shopping around these parts, but there’s only one problem that can make it a tad less exciting than the in-store buying experience: it’s just not very social. Half (well, maybe not half, but a lot!) of the fun of shopping is hanging out with your girlfriends and chatting about clothes, which is a hard experience to recreate online. Until now: that’s where Motilo comes in.

Motilo is a new shopping platform that combines your favorite online retailers like Net-a-Porter, Luisa Via Roma and MyTheresa (not to mention bags like the Proenza Schouler PS1 and 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli) with tools that allow you to style looks, share them with the site’s other users, find inspiration for your own ensembles and shop together with your friends via text and video chat. The site gives you access to literally thousands of designer brands, and as if all that weren’t enough, you can enter to win a £2,000 shopping spree by simply following both @Motilo and @MrsMotilo on Twitter before August 13. For full details, click here. (more…)

We are still so excited to be able to host by far the best fashion giveaway on the Internet right now!! We teamed up with our friends at Kirna Zabete to give away not one, not two, but THREE of the hottest bags in the entire accessory world. All are from Celine, and each is makes it onto our must-have list for a whole host of different reasons.

We are giving away a Large Celine Classic Box Bag, a Celine Tri-Color Luggage Tote and Celine Trapeze Bag. All are from the Celine Spring 2012 collection and each one of them is just as covetable as the next. You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity, so make sure you sign up for your chance to win.


Right now no one can get enough when it comes to the major Celine bag trend. From the highly coveted and widely carried Celine Luggage Tote to the brand’s newest It Bag, the Trapeze, to the ultimate Classic Box Bag, Celine is taking the accessories world by storm. The difficulty in tracking down Celine bags only adds to the frenzy; not only is the brand not available online anywhere, but very few places carry the bags in-store.

To kick off summer, we have partnered with super chic SoHo boutique Kirna Zabete to give away not one, but three (3!) Celine bags. There is so better way to start summer than by winning one of these beauties to tote around for the rest of the season.


Lanvin is one of those designers that gets everyone at the PurseBlog office amped up and ready to shop – Vlad even has a pair of Lanvin kicks. We are total fan-girls (and guy). The silhouettes, the fabrics…and especially the accessories.

We teamed up with Barneys New York to hand pick our fave piece of the season, the Lanvin Quilted Amalia MM Bag and we want to share the love and give it away to one lucky PurseBlog reader.

We are obsessed with this bag. Buttery soft quilted leather, a classy gold tone chain link shoulder strap and the iconic grosgrain ribbon embellishment make for a classic bag with a playful touch.

Enter for your chance to win this amazing bag now!
