As we first told you about last week, this morning marks the beginning of Botkier’s first online sample sale, featuring classic bags like the Trigger and Sasha in never-before-sold colors and materials! Because Botkier loves you guys, they’ve given us a code for our readers to take 15% off your purchases at the sale, which will be online until 9 a.m. Friday. Hurry! The best stuff always goes first!
Don’t you just love the Internet? The deal-laden world of sample sales was once restricted only to those living in the world’s fashion capitals, but now more and more brands are bringing their sample sales online to give their worldwide fans a shot at some serious savings. PurseBlog favorite Botkier is staging its first-ever online sample sale on Tuesday, and not only will it include some of your favorite Botkier bags in never-before-seen colors, but you’ll get an extra 15% off the top, just for being a loyal PurseBlog reader or PurseForum member.

While the main purpose of our trip to NYC a couple of weeks ago was to find an apartment, Vlad and I knew we had to make a trip to Saks Fifth Avenue NYC to see the Botkier + PurseBlog Limited Edition Bag. Not only did we find the bag on display on the front table of floor five among the contemporary designers, but also is it featured in one of the window displays right off of 5th Avenue!
As far as high points in our blogging life go, this is one of the very top. I wanted to scream with excitement and tell everyone walking by the window that the bag on display was designed by the readers and members of our website. But I didn’t – I should have, right?!
The bag is still available for sale online but it is also for sale at the Saks 5th Avenue Flagship store in NYC. If you are in the area, you must check it out!
Thank you again to Botkier and Saks for the amazing partnership. And of course, thank you to all of you – who made this collaboration one of the most reader and brand involved processes I have ever been a part of or seen!
The Botkier + PurseBlog Limited Edition Collaboration Bag has been a long time in the making. We started with an idea, which transformed into reality when we had over 10,000 votes from all of you, and now the bag has not only been produced but also is being sold exclusively at Saks. The entire process has been nothing short of thrilling for us and I know all of you.
Check out the day look and evening look Dallas Shaw came up with to showcase our collaboration. Right now we have the evening look rocking out Twitter background. Both illustrations are perfectly fitting for the bag, as this neutral grey lambskin bag is the perfect accessory to transition from day to night. On top of that, we know this design will be stylish for years to come!
We are extremely excited to be sharing this video with you not only because it has been eagerly awaited, but also because of the copious amount of work it took to turn this collaboration from idea to reality.
The Limited Edition Botkier+PurseBlog Sasha Duffle is now exclusively available at Saks.com for $635 and also at the Saks flagship store in New York City!

The Botkier + PurseBlog Limited Edition Handbag, which was democratically created by our readers in a two phase process, will be exclusively carried and sold both at the Saks 5th Avenue flagship in New York City and Saks.com, starting in July!
We can not begin to describe how exhilaratingly wonderful this is. Needless to say, when we first discussed a possible collaboration with Monica Botkier and her crew, we did not envision the final product to be exclusively carried by one of the biggest fashion retailers worldwide. We are even more thrilled because it was YOU, our loyal readers and fans, who participated in the creation of this unique bag.
It has been a little while since we have updated you on the Botkier + PurseBlog Exclusive Sasha Bag. Finally we can preview this exciting collaboration, it was all of you who contributed after all. The exclusive bag is just about ready to be sold and we got to see a first prototype. We can say with confidence that it is far more amazing than we could have ever imagined. (more…)
What better way to unwind after a long day of final exams than to go shopping? I know. It’s hard to beat. I headed downtown to the Botkier Sample Sale to celebrate another year of college successfully finished. I had strict orders from my mother for what she wanted, and I also planned to get something for my grandmother, who’s currently visiting from Mexico. As for me, I needed to purchase my first Botkier, and I was completely besotted with the Dion Satchel in chamois lambskin. (more…)
