I’m a big believer that words about fashion can be important (since that, after all, is my purpose here), I know what everyone really shows up for: photos. Fashion’s a visual medium, after all, and we’re lucky that we have a talented photographer like Vlad to help us capture unique, striking images of new collections, our personal bags and the favorite pieces of industry insiders whose style we admire. Below, check out our favorite handbag photographs of 2013. Here’s to a new year full of even more beautiful images! (more…)

It’s the last day of #12DaysofHandbags, and we thought it was only fitting to end on a great note. That’s why we decided to round things off with fun party bags!

Take a look at our top picks for party bags, and trust us, these bags are guaranteed to make you have a great time.

We’re all aware of how beautiful women’s bags can be (after all, we talk about them every day), but sometimes it’s the men’s bags that go unnoticed. There are so many beautiful bags for your the man in your life that we decided to dedicate an entire day just for the boys. Take a look at the bags we’ve picked out as our favorites.

We used to think of backpacks as the typical JanSport most of us wore in grade school, but in more recent years, designers have been churning out some seriously amazing backpacks. These past few years, we’ve seen numerous designer backpacks on the runway, celebrities and supermodels rocking them, and in tons of street style pictures from photographers and style bloggers alike. They say 2013 was the year of the snake, but we’re saying it was the year of the backpack. (more…)

While we give our handbags plenty of attention, our trusty wallets that live inside them often go forgotten. That’s why we’re dedicating an entire day to the one thing that keeps our beloved credit cards and cash all in one place…because without them, shopping would be a whole lot harder.

With Christmas around the corner, holiday decorations, winter wonderlands, festive cookies and handfuls of wrapped presents have taken over our Instagram feed. With so many pretty pictures popping up everyday, we took it upon ourselves to round up some of the best of this week. Take a look below and see which holiday pictures made our picks! (more…)

As self-proclaimed purse addicts, it’s no secret we’ve purchased our fair share of impractical bags. You know what I’m talking about – we all have at least one. Chances are we give that impractical bag (that we’ve only worn a handful of times) a lot of love because it’s “special,” but what about our everyday bags? They take most of the beating and get dragged around to places much less glamorous than those where we take out clutches, so why not give your everyday bag a little extra loving on Day 8 of #12DaysofHandbags. These three everyday bags we’ve picked out are purses we often ask ourselves how we ever lived without.

Most of us are more loyal to our makeup brands than we are ever to our favorite designer labels, so why not have a fancy bag to hold that beloved Chanel Mascara you wonder how you ever lived without? Makeup bags, we dedicate day 6 of #12DaysofHandbags to you. We’ve included three of our favorites, including a dopp kit we borrowed from the boys, because sometimes we just need a little extra room while traveling.

Take a peek below to see our makeup bags and tag #12DaysofHandbags to show us yours, or just follow along on our Instagram! (more…)

Clutches hold a special place in our hearts. They’re certainly not the most practical of purses, but something about their small, delicate size instantly makes us feel more glamorous the second we carry them. Take a look below to see where we took our clutches this week.
