After I posted my Celine reveal, I realized I not only love to share the new bags I buy for myself, but also I love to hear about your purchases. This is one of our favorite parts of the PurseForum, but I want to bring that joy over to PurseBlog. Every month we will have a post where you can share your accessories purchases and we will share ours with you too!

Celine Trapeze Tri Color

Kicking it off, August was filled with a few new bags for me. First off, you all know about my lovely Celine Trapeze Bag, and I pinch myself when I see it and know that it’s mine. But that isn’t my only new addition – it’s been quite a nice month for me.

Chanel Boy Bag

As if the Celine bag wasn’t enough, I also added a Chanel Boy Bag to my collection. I’ve talked about the Boy Bag so many times that it’s likely annoying by now, but I just couldn’t figure out which one I wanted. Actually, I could figure it out, I wanted them all, but I needed to narrow it down to one bag. I finally settled on the Metallic Calfskin version and I’m thrilled with my decision. I own a black flap and I wanted something a little different, and this bag fits the bill. I’ve been carrying my Boy fairly often, but I am still a little worried about dark denim rubbing off on the light metallic body, so I am making an active decision when I take it out. More info via

LK Bennett London

And there is a third new bag. (I told you it was a big bag month for me!) I was lucky to be sent a gift from L.K. Bennett London, the stunning Rosamund Bag. I didn’t know much about this bag, but let me tell you something, it is absolutely stunning. The leather is super soft but not thin, and I’ve had so many people ask me about this bag. I love the shape and I’ve found this bag to be great to fling over my shoulder. I’m also pretty excited about the price – for such a beautifully crafted bag, it’s only $595 via L.K. Bennet London, which is quite fair.

I didn’t purchase any new shoes or jewelry, my two new handbags were plenty. We’d love to hear from you; share your August purchases in this post! You can attach pictures as well if you’d like.

    Bought a PS 11 mini in black. However there is a problem: one side squeaks ( metal on metal noise). Barney’s replaced the strap, to no avail. Has anybody else had that same happening, and how did you solve it. Thanks

      I bought 2 PS bags….one PS1 Medium satchel in a beautiful marine blue and the PS1 pouch cross body in navy. And I have noticed a squeak with the pouch. I have not solved the issue, however! I bought the larger bag first and fell in love with all the great pockets (something sorely lacking in most designer bags). That’s when I knew I had to have a cross body as well. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

    Meg’s what is the color of the boy?

    • It’s metallic calfskin (so an off-white greyish/white). Really beautiful and from different angles it picks up different colors!

    I bought an Alexander Wang Rockie bag in Cayenne from the Fall 2012 collection at a secondhand shop. I love it and can’t stop wearing it. I accessed the Purse Forum in store before buying it to make sure that it was authentic.
