[Editor's Note: We have a lot of silly conversations about bags in the PurseBlog offices, both out loud and via GChat. Starting today, we'll be giving you an occasional glimpse of what it's like to work inside PurseBlog and have your water cooler chit-chat overtaken by handbags.]

Megs: i feel like you’d like the purple one!

Amanda: haha, it’s a liiiiiiittle Hot Topic

As quickly as it snuck up on us, Fashion Week has left. It happens every season – fashion week comes and goes in the blink of an eye, and we want to be able to share a bit of the madness that we experience with you.

The official start of New York Fashion Week is a mere 48 hours away, and as always, we’ll be covering the best bags and accessories that come down the runway at Lincoln Center and beyond.
