Our absolute favorite holiday is right around the corner: National Handbag Day! Last year was the first-ever National Handbag Day, and this year we have another great week of celebrating planned. Friday, October 10 is the big day, and we know you’ll want to follow along and join us in the fun we have planned.

We’ve teamed up with Bloomingdale’s to bring you the lots of celebration and surprises in praise of our favorite things: handbags. Bloomindale’s worked with us and five of our favorite designers to create bags to celebrate National Handbag Day, which you can only get through the Bloomingdale’s National Handbag Day online pop-up shop.

Last year we realized that our favorite accessory didn’t have its own holiday, and we had to change that. It seems like you guys agreed with us; over 3,600 of you shared images on Instagram, in addition to thousands of tweets, and I’m sure plenty of new handbag acquisitions were made as well. You can also follow along with the festivities on the Bloomingdale’s Twitter and Instagram pages.

We want to hear and see from you again this year. Be sure to follow @PurseBlog and Instagram your favorite bag images with the hashtag #NationalHandbagDay. (Tag as at @PurseBlog as well to be sure we see it!) We will be regramming our favorite images and showcasing some on PurseBlog throughout the week.

Also, don’t forget to tweet us as well! Tomorrow, we will be holding our first-ever #PurseChat on Twitter, and we would love to have you join us!

This is going to be a fun week, filled with exclusive bags and more from Bloomingdale’s, great handbag features, and even a giveaway sprinkled in there. Stay tuned and follow along with #NationalHandbagDay!

Sweet Summertime
