Today is the day! We’ve finally made it to our very own National Handbag Day 2017. Back in 2013, we founded this holiday in order to give us and our faithful readers an opportunity to celebrate our love of bags and the central roles they play in our daily lives. Handbags are fun accessories to carry and collect, sure, but they’re also more than that: bags carry our most precious things, make our lives easier, and provide a little comfort when our days take a turn.
We hope you’re all in the celebratory mood, too, because we have lots of fun things coming today, and we’d love it if you’d join the conversation in the comments here and show us your own bags on Instagram! Whether it’s your all-time favorite, your newest acquisition or just what you’re carrying today, post on Insta with the hashtag #nationalhandbagday and tag us at @PurseBlog to make sure we see your snap and for a chance to be featured on the site!
Happy National Handbag Day from the PurseBlog team!
