Dear fellow September babies,

I am so sorry. I forgot to put up your birthday gift guide the beginning of this month, and I feel even worse because September is my birthday month too. I celebrated my birthday on the 6th, and since New York Fashion Week started that day, I didn’t get to celebrate yet and I almost entirely forgot. Today it hit me, and although it may be late into the month, there are still plenty of days left for my fellow September babies. If your special day has already passed, then of course you can use the birthday gift money you got to go towards the perfect sapphire handbag.

Sapphire is a great color for bags; a true blue will add a bright color to your wardrobe, and just like blue jeans, blue ends up being a neutral that can be worn with blacks, browns, and everything in between. Click through the jump to see the sapphire handbags I personally would love as my birthday gift this year.

    I just love that blue Gucci bag – the color is perfection!

  • Angela

    can I just say how happy i am with your new post layout? i love that all the photos are on one page and all i have to do is scroll down! i hated it when they were each on a new page …

    • We plan to do a mix of both – when we have a super long article like the Many Bags of Jessica Simpson, it truly can’t all work on one page!

      But we are also developing a new gallery that hopefully will be easy to use and beautiful! :)

    I concur with loving how the pics are all on one page. Love the blues as well, particularly the Gucci

  • R Merrick

    Love the blue bags! Megs you make me jealous each month with the birthday bag posts since you skipped May, but at least we get gorgeous bags to look at everyday!

  • OlayinkaFab

    The Proenza Schuler and YSL are haute!

    I didn’t realise how much I liked blue bags until I saw this post and realised that I would like every one of them ! That Proenza Schouler PS1 Medium Suede Satchel is the ultimate. Hope you had a great birthday Megs ! Did you get a new bag for your birthday ?
