I know that more of a few of you will be able to commiserate with watching your favorite bag be struck down, if only temporarily. Share your tales of handbag destruction (and hopefully, redemption) in the comments below.

Size isn't that big of an issue for me–anything that can fit sunglasses, keys, a card case and an iPhone can find a home in my closet. 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...

It's the Hermès bag that most consistently captures my attention, and while we're picking fantasy bags, I figure I might as well swing for the fences. Now we want to hear from you: what's your Holy Grail bag, and how did you arrive at that bag for the title?

Obviously, I value having a good handbag more than most people on Earth, and I'm lucky that a handbag of that price level is an option for me, even as a rare and saved-for treat. We all have our financial and mental limits, though, and I suspect (or, maybe, hope) mine won't be budging any...

was the star of my very own What's In Her Bag. I bought it with money earned at my first job out of college, full price, at the Neiman Marcus in Atlanta. I'll also be holding on to my Proenza Schouler PS1, which I still use with some regularity. It was a Net-a-Porter sale find, and I was so...

I'm currently in the midst of an existential crisis over whether to buy it or wait out the rest of the season and see what else might come my way, but I fear that if I don't, I'll have a terrible case of non-buyer's remorse. Did you brave the crowds in-store this weekend, shop online or...

We turn to you to ask: what do you think of this bag?

Now that Pre-Fall 2015 pre-orders are starting to arrive and Fall 2015 pre-orders are starting to become available, I bet that many of you have some shopping lists in your heads. Everyone at the PurseBlog offices definitely does–we've all been chattering about our favorite new arrivals all...
