As seen last night at a private cocktail hour for the Miami Fashion Week SWIM: The Bottega Veneta S.O. Nero Intrecciato Karung Stretch Knot Clutch.

Full coverage of the event coming soon!

Today is the 4th of July, and today we celebrate America’s 234th birthday. All over the country there will be parades and parties, fireworks and great food and most importantly, good times with friends and family.

Stay safe and enjoy the long weekend!

During the ongoing World Cup, we at PurseBlog all feel just a little (ok, a lot) South African in spirit. The Gucci Joy fits the theme well with its Safari-like feel.

Today was rather uneventful.

There is just something inherently adorable about a tough guy on his 200mph motorcycle sporting a small, crossbody Coach messenger on his back.

A horse is a horse, of course, of course…

This weekend’s obsession visits the gentleman’s department. At around $170, Hermes’ beautiful silk ties are a (relatively) cheap entry into the world of men’s luxury fashion. The silk is among the finest available and the prints are highly colorful and come in funny and playful patterns.

They make great gifts for husbands or boyfriends for any occasion and are available in Hermes boutiques or online.

After previewing her new exclusive Saks collection at Dadeland Mall in Miami, we had the pleasure of hanging out with bag designer and good friend Rebecca Minkoff. Rebecca carrying the Boyfriend Pouch and Megs with a special order Morning After bag.

RM bags are available via ShopBop and Saks.

Reese Witherspoon is a fan too! 3.1 Phillip Lim Page Bag available at 3.1 flagship stores for $895.

For everyone asking: Shoes are Modern Vintage Dash Lace Up Oxfords via Shop Bop for $235.

Spring has officially arrived. What better way to celebrate than laying in the grass with your Rebecca Minkoff Loveletter Satchel? Our new bag model, Jenna, spent her afternoon last week just that way. Buy via ShopBop for $495.
