What we've always found true on PurseForum has once again proved itself true on Instagram: people love to share their accessories acquisitions with people who appreciate them. In our new series, Instagram's Handbag Celebrities, we'll bring you close-up looks at the women who are doing that in the most hypnotic fashion on the popular photo-sharing platform. For our first installment, we went with one of the best: @upcloseandstylish.
The woman behind the account keeps herself anonymous and doesn't show her face, but there's rampant Internet speculation that she's the wife of a wealthy European businessman. Her clothing choices, although not uniformly high-end (she mixes in a lot of items from Zara and Forever 21), would bear out the "wealthy" part, at the very least. The modelesque blonde has some of the rarest Birkins in the world, including both the So Black and the Himalayan crocodile versions, plus a huge selection of exotic and leather bags from Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dior and beyond. Check out some of our favorites of her snaps below, but if you love to ogle beautiful bags (and shoes - the lady loves her Louboutins), we highly suggest you join her legion of Instagram followers, currently 904,000 strong. If you're acquisition-minded, Upcloseinstylish is also excellent about posting brand and style names for everything in her photos.
