Congrats to our winner, Shana Levin!!

When Vlad and I visited the Botkier showroom last week, the bag that neither of us could take our eyes off of was the new Small Eden Satchel valued …

Botkier Sasha Medium Duffel Bag, $595 via ShopBop.com

When I laid eyes on this bag, I began to feel hungry. Images of chocolate bars and fudge danced through my head and I realized that not only does this bag remind me of one of my favorite food groups but also I do not own a dark brown bag. Both Amanda and I don’t usually care for brown handbags, but Botkier has released this delightful version of its coveted Sasha and I just might cave. (more…)

I have been eying this bag ever since Dianna Agron (actress from Glee, which is a show I am obsessed with but that is an entirely different story), was spotted wearing it. There is something so appealing about the long adjustable shoulder strap (the shortest drop is already 15.5″). And right now I am absolutely loving army green.

The Savvy Must Have this week is the Botkier Aiden Crossbody Hobo. (more…)

My latest bag obsession set in quick and hit me hard. Each time I visited Botkier’s website I kept seeing the gorgeous Botkier Venice Hobo in hot pink used for their ad campaign. Not only is the photo beautiful, the bag has a way to jump out and grab your attention. The zippers, the tassels, the COLOR. How can you not love this bag? Better still is that it is made with super soft lambskin, with a slight gaze, an an attention grabbing hot pink color.

Ok are you obsessed to? It can not just be me. Clearly people agree with me because this color of the bag is sold out at Botkier. Lucky for you we have tracked it down at some other websites for you all. (more…)

My current obsession is the hot pink Botkier Venice Hobo. Not only is it designed with supple lambskin, but it also rocks a pop of hot pink color. The Ad campaign photo is one of my favorites, simple yet striking.

Spring is around the corner and we have a sneak peak at the Botkier Spring 2010 collection! In October we sat down with Monica to see what was in store for us from Botkier. On top of that, we were finalizing our amazing PurseBlog + Botkier Limited Edition Handbag.

Monica shares her a couple of her favorite bags from her Spring 2010 line. Our personal favorite from the Spring collection is the the Howard Street Bag, which comes in a great luscious pink or a blue multi-colored embossed python version.

At the end of the video, Monica talks a bit about our collaboration together. We are thrilled to be working with Botkier and know there will be many more partnerships in the future!

Make sure to vote for Phase II of the PurseBlog + Botkier Limited Edition Handbag.

PurseBlog and Botkier

We have been working on this collaboration for months are are happy to finally be bringing you news of it. PurseBlog is teaming up with Botkier to design an exclusive PurseBlog and Botkier handbag. This handbag will be created by all of you, having choices for the silhouette, leather, and hardware. After this initial round of voting, Botkier will mock up a couple of options for the next stage. Once that is completed, Botkier will be making and selling the PurseBlog + Botkier Limited Edition Handbag on their website.

The first stage is voting on the initial categories. Monica Botkier and her team have picked out four styles, leathers, and hardware options for you all to vote on. Some of the styles are not in production right now and the leathers are exclusive for PurseBlog, none have been used before. This will truly be a one of a kind design when it is complete! (more…)

Botkier Venice Satchel

Hobo or Satchel: Which style do you prefer? That ultimately depends on how you like to wear your handbags. Many of you loved the Botkier Venice Hobo, as did the entire PurseBlog team, and now we will bring you information on the fraternal sister of the the bag. The Botkier Venice Satchel’s design contains every aspect of the hobo that we found so edgy and cool: the exposed zips, tassels and smooshy leather. The satchel comes with an optional shoulder strap. I am more of a hobo girl, give me my bag and let me sling it over my shoulder, but I have a soft spot for satchels with shoulder straps. Still throwing it over my shoulder and still loving the look. The colors of Botkier bag I love most and this satchel is available in caramel or sunshine yellow. Now I ask you; hobo or satchel in the Botkier Venice bag? Buy through Nordstrom for $595.

Botkier Venice Hobo Botkier bags have been a longtime favorite of the Purse Blog team. There is a category for them on Purse Blog savvy which they so deserve but I still want to talk about them on Purse Blog sometimes as well. Amanda already covered the Botkier Venice Hobo on PB Savvy and now I am here on Purse Blog to share my love of this bag with you as well.

Let the lusting begin. The Botkier Venice Hobo is designed with smooth supple leather. The leather from Botkier is amazing, this I can attest to. Ample front zippers and tassels add an extra dimension that looks super chic. The hobo will fit perfectly under your arm and not rub right under your arm with the 9″ drop. All sorts of pockets are on the inside for storage as well, a zip and three open pockets. And this hobo is extra roomy, dimensions are 16″W X 13″H X 2½”D. I love this bag. A yellow version for $595 at Nordstrom is available (they have a magnificent yellow hue) or opt for black or caramel (which is my pick) at Saks for $595.

Botkier Olivia Small Chain Shoulder BagOnce again, thank you Botkier. I am definitely happy with what I see here. The Botkier Olivia Small Chain Shoulder Bag is one I want. I would have to say, for the most part, I don’t carry around small handbags. Well, of course I love my clutches, but other than that, small bags aren’t really my thing. But then, I found this handbag and I started to think that small bags could work for me. Per usual, I love the black leather but even more than that I love the chain handle with leather detail at the top. Of course, just a bit of square stud detail on the front and on the sides has to help add a little edge to the bag. But I think it’s the hint of “bad girl” I see in this handbag that I really like. I probably wouldn’t be carrying this around a lot during the day, but you better believe I would love to tote this around at night! Buy through Singer 22 for $475.

Botkier Trigger BagWell, goodbye work week, hello weekend! Hmmm, not quite time to call it quits for the day, but still, the weekend is very much on the horizon. I would have to be one of those people who really believes you should work hard and play hard. When I say “play” I am not saying I stay out and close down all the bars, but anything I can do to relax is much appreciated. Whether I am walking around a farmers market, window shopping or hitting the bars, I have to have a great handbag. The Botkier Trigger Bag has just made it to my “I really, really, really want this” list. I love how the bag is chic, a little bit rock-n-roll and completely versatile. The metallic leather handbag has zipper details as well as a bit of fringe. To me, it is a total knock out; a handbag I would carry just about anywhere. Thank you Botkier, you made my weekend! Buy through Shop Bop for $610.
