Valentino Rockstud Bags

I’ve never liked admitting when I’m wrong about something, but when that something turns out to be a thing I enjoy that I had originally hated, that softens the blow a little bit. When it comes to handbags, the first things on that list are the Valentino Rockstud Bags.

Even if you’re not a Sex and the City fan, you probably remember the intro: Carrie, clad in a tutu, is walking along a Manhattan street when she’s sprayed by puddle water by a bus with her own photo emblazoned on the side.

Let’s be honest: most bags on our wishlists aren’t “needs,” they’re “wants.” Some of them we want because they fill a gap in our accessories wardrobe, and others we want because they are pretty to look at.

A quick look at the comments on any of our celebrity posts make at least one thing clear: you guys are pretty savvy to the not-so-transparent ways that brands try to market things to you via their famous friends.

Do you put your bags on the ground?

I’m always ready for a lively debate when it comes to this topic, and it’s something anyone who carries an expensive bag is faced with daily. When you’re out and about – grabbing lunch, sitting on a park bench or at the movies, for example – do you put your handbag on the ground?

As much as I try to be careful, I’m just a person who is hard on things. On clothes, shoes, home decor, handbags, whatever. I used my old iPhone with a cracked screen until chunks of glass started falling out, and I buy a new pair of headphones every 10 weeks like clockwork.


A couple weeks ago, I posted a photo on Instagram of me putting my Chanel bag in its dustbag and then into its box after I used it. I asked my Instagram followers if they also put their bags away after use.

One of my favorite aspects of PurseBlog is the comments readers leave for us. It doesn’t mean I always agree, but I love to hear what people have to say about handbags, and many of our commenters are quite thought-provoking.

As you might imagine, we spend a lot of time in the PurseBlog offices talking about bags. Bags we’re plotting to buy, bags we can only buy in our imaginations, bags we think are a waste of money – it all comes up eventually.


I’ve been busy these past few months with a variety of things, some great and some not (my grandmother passed away in January), but I’m back now! One of my trips to be with my family in Ohio ended up being much longer than anticipated, and I only had one bag with me, my black Hermes Birkin.
