When it came time to design Mackage x PurseBlog Nomad Bag, my idea was to make a bag that is ideal for the lady on the move, which I constantly am. When I’m home in NYC, I change my bags out often, but Vlad and I travel a ton and I’m not someone who takes along a bunch of bags when I’m on the road; they’re cumbersome to pack, they could get lost, there’s just too much hassle. I told the designers behind Mackage, Elisa and Eran, that the Nomad needed to be made with a hectic lifestyle in mind. I wanted to make something both compact and spacious, which is not an easy feat. On top of that, I wanted the bag to be convertible.

After a very long design day, many emails back and forth and months in the making, we ended up with a bag that actually gives you three bags in one. From a two-compartment shoulder bag, to a stand-alone clutch that can be zipped off of the rest of the bag and carried alone, to a pouch with an optional shoulder strap, this bag is the ideal travel companion. And for everything you get, the price can’t be beat – $395 via Mackage.

I’ve been traveling with my Mackage x PurseBlog Nomad Bag the past few months and wanted to show you the journey of my Nomad bag, from the pink sand beaches of Bermuda to the Toronto Needle (CN Tower) to the bag’s launch parties in both Toronto and NYC.
