It seems like sale season gets a little bigger and a little earlier every year, and that’s something you’ll never see anyone on the PurseBlog team complaining about. In addition to our weekly roundup of …
By now, if you consume any national media in the US at all (or if you’ve read this blog at all this week before today), you’ve probably heard plenty of New York-based people complain that …
Compared to fall, spring’s textures can be a bit…down-market. We love raffia and canvas as much as anyone else, but naturally, we love snakeskin and leather even more. So what’s the secret to incorporating successfully …

The folks at Treesje love PurseBlog and all of you so much that they designed a one-of-a-kind iPhone case to giveaway. By one-of-a-kind we mean this …
Normally I don’t have any problem accurately identifying materials in person, particularly when those materials are commonly used for handbags. It’s my job, after all, and I’ve manhandled a lot of purses in my life. When I saw this version of the Treesje Bare Revealed Satchel in person a few weeks ago, however, I would have sworn to anyone who asked that it was made of very, very soft sueded canvas or linen. When I saw how much it cost, I put the bag right back on the shelf, assuming that the price was too high for a non-leather bag.
As it turns out, that’s not quite right. (more…)
That’s what happened when I spotted the Treesje Crimson Crossbody Bag at Intermix a few weeks ago. I was perusing some pretty patterned dresses when I lifted my eyes to a back shelf and BAM. There it was. I had to go touch it.
I’m still not exactly sure what about this bag in particular makes it so appealing to me. Studs have been done nearly to death by more or less all of my favorite bag designers, but for some reason, this crossbody makes me love the look all over again. (more…)
I’m beginning to sound like a broken record player, so forgive me. But, crossbody and bucket bags are all the rage this season as well as seasons to come. So, it is no surprise that I have yet another crossbody bag to share with you. I don’t know about you, but there is something about a simplistic bag that makes me so happy. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love a great eccentric bag as much as the next person, but there are days when I want a great bag without a lot of fuss. Thankfully, Treesje is a brand that continues to bring me bags I cannot get enough of. (more…)
Last week I wrote about the Lilly Pulitzer for LeSportsac Large Weekender, and opinions about the bag were decidedly split. I can totally understand why – pastel pink and green florals are certainly not for everyone, particularly if you didn’t grow up appreciating Lilly Pulitzer like many people in my part of country did.
Just because a lot of people didn’t like that option doesn’t mean that those people don’t also have a need for an overnight bag, and that’s why I present, for your consideration, the Treesje Fatal Duffle. It’s multi-colored, patterned, and completely different than anything Lilly Pulitzer has ever made. (more…)
I know what you’re going to say: that this Treesje looks like it’s being grasped from the sides by long, mechanical fingers, probably belonging to some incredibly fierce future android. Oh, what’s that? That wasn’t what you were going to say? I see. Well, that’s what I imagine the bag as, so clearly I have a strange mind. (more…)
I have to say, this is the first time I’ve seen a crossbody bag from Treesje. I found this a little odd when I came across this bag and tried to figure out if perhaps I simply overlooked other crossbody bags. While there are Treesje bags with detachable shoulder straps, this really is the first smaller crossbody bag I’ve seen. And you know what? I like what I see. (more…)
It’s very rare that I have anything negative to say about Treesje bags, and if that was what you were hoping for today, I’m about to disappoint you. Move along. Nothing to see here. Besides this beautiful bag, of course.
The Treesje The Revealed Studded Satchel is similar to a lot of the brand’s bags that we’ve seen in the past because it employs two of their signatures: tonal texture and studs. The best thing about it, however, is that the designers chose to use the studs in such a way that they won’t look dated once industrial finishes become a little less popular. (more…)
