Let’s face it, the celebrity craze is everywhere. Here at Purse Blog and over at Luxaholics we talk about celebs all the time; where they hang out, who they are with and of course what they wear. Now, that of course includes what handbags they are carrying. Just as some celebs can be photographed wearing several different outfits a day, they can also be found carrying several different handbags. LA based designer CC Skye has a huge celeb following. And we are thrilled to say that our Day 7 Giveaway is her ever so popular and widely photographed CC Skye Lucy Bag.

To me, it is more than obvious why this handbag is such a celeb favorite. It is chic, edgy, fun, sophisticated, practical and oh so fashionable. The rolled double handles offer something just a bit different than you might be used to seeing while the classic shape of the handbag provides ample room for whatever you need to bring along with you. I had a chance to meet CC Skye when I was out in LA last month and let me just say, she is just like her handbags: chic, fun and lovely. So, as you pick up the secret code and head back to Luxaholics, stay tuned here at Purse Blog to read up on some great insider information!!!

handbag vs purse

When we started this website, Purse Blog seemed like a perfectly fitting name. But over time I realized that I tend to use the word handbag more than purses. And then, of course, for short I use the term bag. Both terms mean the same thing, but I still find myself gravitating toward saying designer handbags rather than designer purses. Some people have told me that men use the word more often than women, not sure if this is true.

As I discuss our website and business with outsiders, the terms purses and handbags are thrown around. Most recently I was asked which term we prefer. And I immediately said handbags. Then realized that our site and forum are named Purse Blog and Purse Forum. Of course both terms can be used interchangeably, and denote the same meaning, but I prefer one over the other.
