The weather outside doesn’t show it, but inside stores it’s beginning to look a lot like spring. With the long-awaited arrival of spring accessories, pastels and brightly colored bags are beginning to pop up everywhere. While we may have to wait a few more months for the weather to warm up, our Instagram feed has had us dreaming of pretty flowers and all things pink.

It’s been a while since our last #PBWIMB Instagram Roundup, what with all of the holiday chaos that went on these past couple months, but we’re back, and the bags you photographed look better than ever. Judging by the bags we’ve seen on our feeds lately, either all of you were on the nice list this year, or you treated yourselves to some seriously good arm candy.

Best Bag Photography 2013

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.

Party Bags

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! After all, we’ve still got plenty of parties, dinners and New Year’s Eve fetes to attend these next few days.

MENS BAGS

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.

Backpacks

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.

Wallets

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.

Instagram

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.

Everyday Bags

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?

12 Days of Handbags Day 7 Totes.jpg

We’re more than halfway through the #12DaysofHandbags, and today we’re all about totes. Whether you’re taking it to work or shopping on the weekend, we love that our totes are roomy enough to fit all of our essentials.
