Saturday was our third annual National Handbag Day, and handbag lovers everywhere united to share their love of bags with us! This year, #nationalhandbagday trended on Instagram all day, and as well as on Twitter during part of the day and in certain areas. Seriously, thank you guys for being part of our day!

An aside, but one I think is important to share: I know some people noted there are more important things in this world, and I agree. Our love of bags may seem superficial, but there’s a lot more to it than just that. Sometimes with all that is bad in this world, we just need something we love to lift our spirits. Our bags hold our dearest possessions, some of which are integral to our lives. Bags are what we make of them, and sometimes that includes getting the word out for incredibly important causes, like Allstate Foundation Purple Purse, which we’ve partnered with to help spread awareness about and aid victims of domestic and financial abuse.

But without further ado, here are some of our favorite photos you shared with us on National Handbag Day!

we may be celebrating with @PurseBlog one day late, but everyday is #nationalhandbagday for us!

      • Imgoingbroke

        You did a stellar job, Megs. I enjoyed looking at all the pictures. Especially loved slide 18 (Anika Bozik) and all the Fendi’s. I wish!!!

  • Jerri R

    Love the Nine West bag!

  • BabyDietrich

    I wish you would have shown more of “real people” participating in #nationalhandbagday as opposed to corporations and pro bloggers. I saw plenty of people participating!

    • I tried to give a really good mix of brands, bloggers, and handbag lovers. There were so many people who participated and I was so happy to see that. I looked for clean and crisp photos to share, which is how that mix above came to be :)

      • Here is something extremely interesting that is worth to pay attention , a superb opportunity for work for those who want to utilise their free time to make some extra money using their computers… I have been working on this for last two and half years and I am earning 50-80 dollar/ hour … In the past week I have earned 13,245 dollars for almost 20 hours sitting ….

        Any special kind of skills or qualification is not required for this, just normal typing and a reliable internet connection ….

        Time limitations are not here to start work … You may work on this any time when you get some time ….

    Love all the bags!!!????

  • Some of the pictures are so creative and beautiful! This is such a great initiative, thank you purseblog and thank you to the talented and sensitive contributors. At Ellen Vicius we would share our picture.

  • Gorgeous bags all around!

  • FashionableLena

    The bag in slide 62 is beautiful.

  • Irene

    Anyone know if the black quilted bag in slide 51 is Rebecca Minkoff?

  • Sparky

    You allude to criticism regarding the occasion (“more important things in this world”). I suppose if we had National Movie Day no one would have a problem with that.

    I don’t have a problem with celebrating things that make people happy be it bags, dogs, cats, cars, family time, whatever. Enjoying a hobby doesn’t make someone superficial.

  • Awesome selection of photos. I think #40 is my favorite photo. Her expression is perfect, ha! And I agree. The world might be a brighter place if we celebrated the good things more often. Obviously people have fun with it :-) Good stuff!

  • Antonia

    Love the Tory Burch bag modeled by Tory herself!!
