Nothing original, just another "whats in your bag?" post. Hi guys! Yeah I know, you're all probably thinking, "where the fxck have you been".. Apologies for the lack of blogging lately, I have been so busy with things and projects that are soon to reveal themselves in due time! Anyway I...

I'm not really haunted by much (maybe just the idea of a super large spider or taking a really bad fall), but I do find myself constantly thinking about certain bags that got away. This clearly is a topic that comes up a bit here at PurseBlog; we have covered it twice (here and here) in the...

, everyday necessities, what we choose is a part of who we are. Once I had decided on the PS1, I waited for one to inspire me, and thankfully, a blanket-print jacquard textile version from Fall 2011 did just that. Because I was 25 and new to New York, I decided to take a little risk and hope...

I love bags both neutral and bright, solid-color and patterned, leather and woven. I've spent too long in the industry to be much of a brand snob, as long as I like the bag and it looks well-made. No shoulder strap, though? No thanks. Because personal shopping dealbreakers are so...

Most of my bags have held up admirably to my abuse, but they all fall victim eventually. A worn corner here, a frayed seam there – the edges start to falter, and then I have to move on to something else. A few bags have been standouts: My Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag has been stuffed into...

With brands doing price increases left and right, where and why we tap out has been a hot topic in the PurseBlog offices over the past few months. Most shoppers have an ideal upper limit in their heads–what's yours, and could you see yourself breaking it for a bag you really love?

That was about nine months ago, but I've been trying to be a little more conservative with my finances this year and I have plenty of handbags to serve my purposes for the time being (this job does have some perks, after all), so it wasn't until a recent breakfast meeting with Mansur...

. Why not just buy the bag, under those circumstances? Despite the fact that I'm not usually one for logos (and Hermès is not usually a brand that uses them on bags), my version of the Holy Grail is an Hermès Constance Bag. It's not necessarily the one above, although that one's certainly...

right now that just speaks to me, either because fall stuff is still coming in or because my definition of what qualifies as truly bizarre has gotten so narrow that almost nothing could reach that threshold. As it is, the bag that I'd buy if I had 2000 bag dollars to spend only on something...

bucket bag along with me to basically every book party, birthday dinner and opening night since then, and it's always worked out great—it's hands-free, unobtrusive and incredibly lightweight. In this season of abundant festivities, it seems more than worth recommending. You can pick up one of...
