The Hermès Birkin is the most iconic and sought-after handbag in the world (even if you don’t like it, it’d be hard to argue otherwise), and that means most fashion lovers have already absorbed a lot of information about how it was conceived, how it’s made and how hard it is to get one.

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and although family-oriented holidays can be tricky (if not downright disastrous) for lots of people, everyone probably has one or two fictional, televised mothers for whom they have plenty of unfussy affection.

Check out all the ways we’re planning to celebrate below, and let us know how you’re enjoying your love of bags in the comments.


We’re big fans of self-care, whether that means a solo trip to the movies or a calming nightly skincare ritual. As you might expect, though, handbags are our favorite way to indulge ourselves. Retail therapy is totally a real thing, and when it comes time to shop, you know which section we’re headed to first.


We’ve inched one day closer to our favorite day of the year, National Handbag Day, and we’re still thick in the midst of preparation and celebration. (Not that we don’t celebrate bags every day, because: duh.) Today, we’re taking a close look at some of Fall 2015’s most popular pieces, and I’ve read my tea leaves to see who it is who might be picking these pieces up for the season.


Unless you just woke up from a years-long coma, you’re probably aware that it’s sale season, and you likely have some feelings about that. (And if you did just wake up from a coma: Welcome. It’s sale season.
