This coming Saturday, October 10th, is the 3rd annual National Handbag Day which is a holiday we founded just over three years ago and is recognized by Chase’s Calendar of Events. That’s right, we made our holiday offical and we’ve had so much fun celebrating our love of handbags with you the past two years.

This year we are looking forward to celebrating with you again! Handbags have become so much more than just a sack that I use to carry my everyday essentials; handbags have changed my life and that of so many others. Over a shared love of bags, thousands of people have come together on the PurseForum to connect and make real life friendships over the past ten years.

Our goal is to to make #NationalHandbagDay trending on Instagram and Twitter this year and we need your help! On Saturday, be sure to upload photos of your favorite bags and use hashtag #NationalHandbagDay. We will be sharing some of our favorite photos our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts as well as on PurseBlog afterwards. We have some really fun editorial pieces in store for you all this week as well, so be sure to check back daily!

If you aren’t already, be sure to follow PurseBlog on Instagram. Tomorrow we will be hosting #PurseChat on Twitter to talk about bags and #NationalHandbagDay. And just in time for the big holiday we have a new and shiny PurseBlog site design for you all coming later this week!

Happy National Handbag Week everyone (and yes, we celebrate all week because one day just isn’t enough)!

P.S. Please consider supporting our small, bag-loving team by clicking our links before shopping or checking out at your favorite online retailers like Amazon, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, or any of the listed partners on our shop page. We truly appreciate your support!

  • Yay for National Handbag Day. An excuse for me to upload pictures of my lovelies :) It’s looking like Diorama might be the new ‘it’ bag.

    Another thumbs’ up for NHD. Maybe PB could ask people to post their favorite (or newest) bags from lesser-known brands, especially if they’re from smaller labels or from talented new designers (or older people who’ve made handbag design a new career choice). For example, I just bought this bag from a small Italian brand I’d never heard of until I walked past their store in Milan:
