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!

    Megs, the Botkier+PurseBlog Sasha Duffle epitomizes a modern yet classic bag. Congrats 100x on such a major collaboration and partnership! Are you & Vlad relocating to NYC? It only makes sense to be in the center of the fashion capital! Good luck finding an apartment! (Keep us posted!) ;-)

    • Thanks so much! The bag is truly beautiful in person (but also in pictures!).

      We are moving to NYC middle of September… very excited!!!

    Megs is moving to New York? Noooooooo!!! I don’t live in the US and every time I travel to Miami and go to Bal Harbour I always think I might bump into you…but now that’s no longer happening!!! :(

    • Don’t worry – I will be down in Miami often visiting family and will still go to Bal Harbour!!! :)

    Is the bag in the pic still available in that colour? It doesn’t look grey to me . . .

  • sanseed

    The design is fairly good,but the color is not so appealing.
