A few weeks ago, I realized I hadn’t bought a new bag in a while. Don’t get me wrong, I still absolutely love bags; at this point, though, my collection is expansive and I’m surrounded by bags every single day, both of which help curb my consumerism. However, I started to get an itch and realized it was because I wanted a new bag.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have a major sweet tooth, and, ok, and a major carb tooth. Give me a carb filled with sweetness, and I’m sold. One of my favorite pastries that I could easily have for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is a croissant, and it seems the quirky Charlotte Olympia loves this flaky baked good as well.
I’ve been sitting on my hands patiently waiting to share the amazing news of the launch of Canadian designer Mackage into the handbag market for Fall 2013. You may know Mackage for its outerwear, but prepare to know the brand for a line of handbags that are beyond good – way better than you would ever expect from a line’s first foray into the accessory market.
Tomorrow kicks off New York Fashion Week, and we are excited and a wee bit stressed to get started. However, I feel so lucky to be part of the events, and I look forward to sharing the things that I see with you all. One of the best ways to do that is via social media, and of course we are on every platform and plan to give you a behind-the-scenes look of how we experience fashion week.
We were so busy enjoying the holidays with our families and friends that I forgot to turn to you guys and see how your holiday went as well. Each year I hope that every little thing I wish for will find its way under my Christmas tree. This year’s Christmas was good to me, with Santa, family, friends, and brands we are lucky to work with showering me with the greatest holiday gifts a girl could ask for.
Every day at 12 pm EST, I click my way over to MYHABIT to see exactly what they have in store for the day so I can shop amazing items at even better prices. The shipping is so fast (similar to MYHABIT’s parent company, Amazon), and the product selection continues to grow. We already contribute to their blog, the Fix, and this month, we’ve partnered with them to bring you a one-stop holiday bag shop.
About a quarter of the country is being affected by what has been dubbed Frankenstorm Sandy. We are prepared and have our apartment as ready as possible, so now we just sit and wait. Unfortunately, I expect power and internet to go out. This being said, as much as we all love handbags, being safe is much more important. If you are sitting around and looking for something to keep your mind off the impending storm, I’ve rounded up some of the most read articles on PurseBlog of all time.
I’ve been running around the past few days for New York Fashion Week, feeling very lucky to do what it is I do. In this crazy world I work in, bloggers like myself are given an opportunity not only to attend these trade shows (which have become much more than that, but that’s what they actually are), but also to sit up close to see the action and peek backstage or watch it all come together.
I am Instagram obsessed. I am fascinated by everything I see and experience daily and being able to share it so easily is a major plus. If you don’t follow us on Instagram, do so now!
I post photos under the name purseblog and you can follow my daily life from everything I eat (I have a major sweet tooth), to my latest purchases, and travels.
Reminder: This week the PurseBlog team is busy attending the shows and parties of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York. While we continue to cover the shows both with reviews and exclusive images, make sure to follow our updates on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Our Instagram name is: purseblog. We have photos of what we are wearing, carrying, and photos taken live from the shows.
