It’s safe to say that, at one point or another, almost all of us have found ourselves lusting over something we saw on Instagram and spent endless hours on shopping sites trying to find the exact match, only to come up empty-handed.

Mulberry Tessie Bag

Not long ago, Mulberry publicly announced its intentions to alter its price structure and handbag offerings in order to try to stanch its recent sales slide, and now we’re seeing the opening salvo of those changes.

J. Mendel Midi Clutch

J. Mendel is already a name that many fashion lovers know, but when you think J. Mendel, you probably think of the brand’s stunning gowns and impeccable furs.

I’ve been a longtime lover of J. Mendel, and when I heard that Giles Mendel decided a focus on bags to be integral to his brand’s future, I was thrilled.

Louis Vuitton Damier Couleurs Bags

By now, we’re all aware that Louis Vuitton is in the middle of a massive re-brand, with a new creative director in Nicolas Ghesquiere and a renewed emphasis on discretion and craftsmanship instead of the ubiquity and showmanship that characterized Marc Jacobs’ tenure at the French powerhouse.

Introducing Dannijo Handbags

The sister duo behind the famed jewelry line Dannijo has already made a name for themselves with their standout baubles. Their jewelry has been spotted on everyone from fashion insiders to Hollywood celebs, and it’s easy to see why: their pieces are both intricately luxurious and boho chic.

Dillon Des Pres iPad Case

Finding a new designer is always exciting, especially when you consider the tight hold some big brands have on the handbag market. Earlier this month, I was introduced to Dillon Des Pres. When I saw his line, I felt a freshness that I always yearn for; the designs are simple and natural, with a beautifully finished aesthetic.

Mackage x PurseBlog Nomad 7

When it came time to design Mackage x PurseBlog Nomad Bag, my idea was to make a bag that is ideal for the lady on the move, which I constantly am. When I’m home in NYC, I change my bags out often, but Vlad and I travel a ton and I’m not someone who takes along a bunch of bags when I’m on the road; they’re cumbersome to pack, they could get lost, there’s just too much hassle.

Mackage x PurseBlog Nomad – $395

I’ve been super excited to share the bag I designed with Mackage, and the time is finally here! We’re pleased to introduce the Mackage x PurseBlog Nomad Bag, which I helped design with the hectic lives of modern women in mind.

Matches Fashion US Site

I just love it when a European retailer comes stateside. Not only does it make shopping more convenient for me and my fellow Americans, but it brings a more diverse point of view into the marketplace – European luxury retail buys tend to include quirkier, riskier items than those from US companies, so the selections often offer a little bit of attitude that’s harder to put your hands on in American department stores.
