A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of speaking with Phillip Picardi from Teen Vogue. Teen Vogue has named PurseBlog their Blogger of the Moment, and we could not be more honored or thrilled!

The interview will give you a look into why we started PurseBlog, how we started PurseBlog, and what our site is about. Teen Vogue has been a favorite magazine and website of mine for years, so being featured on their site has been nothing short of amazing.

Recently I was chosen to be one of Glamour’s Blogging Babes, which was quite an honor. This week Glamour wanted to focus on my wedding day accessories which was perfect timing as tomorrow is our one year anniversary. While most brides focus on their bouquet, many of my wedding day photos focused on my and my bridesmaids handbags.

As many of you know the story, my wedding day handbag was my Hermes Kelly Longue which was a surprise gift from many members of the PurseForum.

In December Glamour chose me as one of their Blogging Babes. I was thrilled to be chosen and kept in such great company on Glamour’s website. Other Blogging Babes featured include Natalie from Fashionista, Julia from All about the Pretty, Leslie from Racked, and Wendy from Nitro:licious.

Glamour has been a longtime favorite fashion magazine of mine so this was a great honor.

Beverly Hills Lifestyle MagazineYou might remember a couple months back when we talked about a new amazing partnership with high end luxury, Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine. The newest issue just hit the stands and I have to say, it keeps getting better and better. Since we are in the midst of the Holiday Season, it should be no surprise that this issue is all about extraordinary gifts, people and places.

Women's Wear Daily Press

Yesterday morning I woke up to a handful of congratulatory emails for our mention and quote in Women’s Wear Daily. While I knew this piece would come out at some point, I had no idea when. Talk about a nice way to start off the week.

About two weeks ago, we had the opportunity to speak to Women’s Wear Daily about accessories firms and their social media involvement.

Beverly Hills Lifestyle

I am going to go ahead and speak for the entire Purse Blog team when I say, this is a great Tuesday. I’ve said it before, but collaborations are the best! And today, I get to share with you yet another amazing, I mean, super amazing collaboration we’ve started. This time, we are working with the oh so posh and glamorous Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine!

Glam BadgeThanks to all of you, we have won the Glam Network Award for Best in Shopping for 2009!! With all of your votes and help, we have won three years in a row now.

How could this week be any better? Vlad flies back from Germany today, tomorrow is Thanksgiving with the family and no work, and today we had a feature in The Miami Herald. We were interviewed for this piece by Kathryn Wexler who met us at our house and had the opportunity to learn more about Purse Blog. Kathryn saw us in our true element, though I did wear a nicer blouse than I typically walk around the house/office in and I had a tinge of make up on.

Our latest press has everyone at Purse Forum very excited! Vlad had been working with Amanda Kwan from the Associated Press on a story about authenticating handbags online. The verdict on the place to go: Purse Forum. Around 1.35 million handbag addicts flock to our forum monthly to discuss handbags and so much more. But early on we saw the need to have areas designated for handbag authentication help.
