Designer-Bag-Shaming

If you’re a normal human who likes fashion and occasionally buys something nice for yourself, you’ve probably been shamed for it at some point, by someone. Friends, boyfriends or girlfriends, parents, coworkers, the parents of your kids’ friends–everyone’s got an opinion about how other people should spend their money.

I try not to be overly negative about any fashion piece; I know that my taste is not for everyone, and the same can be said for anyone else’s. I appreciate the chances that designers take, and when I’m being more critical, it’s typically over the price and quality.

Saks Shopping

I can’t tell you how much I’ve loved getting to share my love of handbags with you for almost ten years now. It’s pretty crazy to think that PurseBlog will turn ten this year, and it’s thanks to you that we’ve made it this far.

We’ve spent weeks upon weeks talking about what to get the people in our lives for the holidays and what we hope to receive ourselves, and now, the big day has come and gone. While you eat leftover Christmas cookies for breakfast and think about cleaning up all the spent wrapping paper in the living room, we want you to share your favorite gifts with us.

One of the best things about working at PurseBlog is getting to bounce ideas, stories and opinions off of my coworkers on a daily basis. We’re a tight-knit group, and we all have very distinctive tastes and viewpoints on fashion, style and shopping.

Givenchy Fish Skin Antigona Bag

Black Givenchy Antigona Bags aren’t exactly a tough sell; not only has the brand been moving them briskly for seasons, but the ultra-expensive exotic versions sell out before they even hit the sales floor. It’s the kind of bag every designer dreams of creating, because it more or less enables a company to print money for a couple of years.

About a month ago, you helped me decide on my new pretty pink Givenchy bag. It is my first Givenchy bag, and while my collection of bags is fairly sizable, I recognize that there are brands I’m lacking. It isn’t always because of want, but I guess I just never get to the place of pulling the trigger and find other brands that I like.

Would You Rather Handbags

Since we start #pursechat last month (join us every Tuesday on Twitter, 2 p.m., use the hashtag!), we’ve gotten a chance to ask and answer questions with you guys in a way that’s gotten us thinking about a lot of fashion-related topics in new ways.

Michael Kors Mansur Gavriel

I read as many comments as I can on PurseBlog, which I love to do. Sometimes I get a little behind and I’ll make myself a tea and sit down to catch up on comments. One comment that I see popping up often is ‘that bag is a copy of this bag’.

Saint Laurent Lulu Bunny Glitter Bag

Glitter, in any form, presents some logistical challenges. First, it gets on everything. Second, it won’t come off. It’s the herpes of the craft world; once you’ve got glitter, it’s yours forever. Third, it is, in the immortal words of one Tim Gunn, a lot of look.
