Over the past couple of months, you guys have submitted a seemingly endless number pictures of your designer bags and all of their contents. We have so much fun looking at them, we decided to round up some of our absolute favorites. You might be surprised what some people keep in their bags, but one thing’s for sure: there’s no shortage of Chanel and Céline in this roundup!

Take a look at who made our list of the best of the best #PBWIMB pics, and continue to send us your pictures for your chance to be featured! Be sure to follow us on Instagram to follow more of our handbag adventures.

Today marks the beginning of PurseBlog Summer Break, which means that our team is taking a week out of the office to travel, rest and, in my case, move into a new apartment. While we’re away, we’ll have both new posts and some of your old favorites, updated and expanded with new photos, new bags and, in general, new things to gawk at. That’s what we’re here for, after all, even when we’re not technically here.

To get things started, we looked back at our Instagrams for the season and put together a few that showcase our favorite bags enjoying the summer weather alongside us. (Yes, our purses are sentient and have moods. Just another perk of the job.) Check ‘em out below, and follow us on Instagram to find out how our bags will feel about fall.

With the arrival of Fall just around the corner, it looks like most of you are slowly stashing away your bright bags and opting for something a little darker and more seasonally appropriate. From burgundy to black, there were plenty of beautiful bags to pick from this week, not to mention a whole lot of Céline! Take a look below to go inside some of the prettiest designer bags we found on Instagram, and as always, keep tagging #PBWIMB to show us what’s inside your bag.

Having beautiful accessories will get you well on your way to having a great Instagram collection, but taking great pictures to showcase those beautiful accessories is just as important. This week, we’ve chosen one of our favorite Instagram collections: that of Michelle Wan, better known as @mwanwan. Not only does @mwanwan have more Chanel and Hermès bags than we could possibly count, but she manages to stage her pictures perfectly for an absolutely gorgeous result.

Mwanwan is a style blogger from Hong Kong who has a serious love for designer handbag and shoes. (Our kind of girl). Apart from the pictures of her accessories, you’ll find plenty of pictures of how she styles her bags and jewelry with different outfits, which is something we, as followers, love to see.

We selected some of our absolute favorites (it was really difficult not to pick them all) from Wan’s account, so take a look below and see for yourself. To see more of her feed, head straight to @mwanwan’s Instagram or her style blog, Mwanwan by Michelle.

It appears everyone is taking good care of their skin and rocking bold lips this season, based this week’s #PBWIMB. Not only did we get a peek inside your handbags, but also inside your makeup bags to see which beauty products you can’t live without this summer. Below, take a look at our favorite photos from Instagram this week.

With over 73,000 followers, it’s no wonder I took one look at @mjsicilia’s Instagram and immediately found myself endlessly scrolling through her feed of designer handbags and shoes. With numerous luxury watches, a variety of Louis Vuitton scarves and plenty of diamond accessories, I couldn’t help but wonder what the inside of her closet looked like. Unlike many of the other Instagrammers we’ve profiled, I loved that @mjsilicia showed us how she uses her designer accessories in her daily life by showcasing her full outfits.

If there’s one thing you’ll notice the second you begin scrolling through @mjsilicia’s Instagram, it’s that she like to stick to a specific color palette of black, grey, camel and white, which makes her a woman after my own heart. So while many Instagram stars enjoy their collections of rainbow-colored Hermès bags, this Instagrammer prefers her family of black accessories.

Check out some of my favorite pictures from her collection or head straight to @mjsilicia’s profile to see all of her 1,000-plus photos!

This week on #PBWIMB, it was clear you all love your wallets and small leather accessories as much as you love your handbags. We’re firm believers that the inside of your bag is just as important as what it looks like on the outside, and what better way to accessorize than to stuff it with designer goodies?

Take a look at our favorite Instagrams of the week, and be sure to keep tagging your photos with #PBWIMB to be featured.

While most of the time we tend to find collections with an array of different designers, that’s certainly not the case with this week’s Instagram celebrity. It’s safe to say that Instagrammer @leorangebliss has more Hermès than most people can ever dream of owning.

Very little is known about who @leorangebliss actually is, but her identity seems to hardly matter when you’re showing off such a colorful array of Hermès Birkins.

Take a look below to see some of our favorite snapshots from @leorangebliss’ Instagram feed, or head straight to her profile to see her full collection!

This week in #PBWIMB, you all gave us in an in-depth look inside your designer bags and showed us all your summer essentials. From shoes to sunglasses and all the beauty products in between, we loved seeing what you’re carrying this season. Take a look at our favorite snapshots of the week, and don’t miss out on the adorable pup we found in a Louis Vuitton Speedy.

I always love perusing through Instagram and finding amazing collections to share with all of you, but this week, I may have had a little too much fun going through all of @fashionistaac’s pictures. If you aren’t already familiar with Camelia, better known as @fashionistaac, you’re in for a treat.

For starters, Camelia has a serious knack for designer bags (especially Hèrmes), so much so that even her young daughter appears to be carrying a Cèline Nano Luggage Tote in one of her photos. (Camelia, can we be your daughter, too?)

Her love for Hèrmes doesn’t just stop at handbags; she has a excessive collection of silk scarves and loads of enamel bracelets that can be seen throughout her Instagram. From what we’ve read, it seems she permanently resides in Belgium, but has a residence in Miami, which she frequents.

While we may not know exactly what it is that Camelia does for a living (it’s rumored she may have owned her own clothing line or store at one point), one thing is for certain: she has a great sense of style. Even Sophia Webster mentioned her in an interview, saying she loved seeing @fashionistaac’s pictures for her style and unexpected color choices.

Take a look at some of our favorite pictures from Camelia’s collection, or head straight to her Instagram page to see her full collection.
