The Mlouye Sera Tall Tote is the Mini Bag I’ve Been Wearing on Repeat
One of the questions that I get asked the most by friends, family, and even strangers once I tell them what it is that I do, is which bags I recommend that are beautiful and stylish but won’t break the bank. The truth is, I see a lot, and I mean a lot, of bags. […]

A Look at the New Givenchy Kenny Bag
When Matthew Williams made his runway debut for Givenchy, it was incredibly apparent that there was a brand new Givenchy in town.

He debuted a collection of bags that were vastly different from anything […]
The Best Bucket Bags for Spring 2022
The bucket bag climbed to the top of our collective handbag loving-minds a few years back, in large part due to minimalist accessories label Mansur Gavriel.

Let’s Give Mulberry Another Look
I’ve seen the Bayswater pictured on celebrities and working women alike multiple times. I’ve considered taking the plunge on several oversized Alexas before realizing that most within my budget were either falling apart in a very literal sense or were counterfeits. I’ve read rave reviews of the brand from tPFers and fellow PurseBloggers alike. But […]

A Closer Look at the New Chanel 22
A storied brand with some of the most recognizable and sought-after bag designs like Chanel may always be met with a bit of resistance when a new shape is introduced. I still remember when the Boy Chanel came out, many were unsure of the bag. The Chanel 19 was also met with trepidation as well, […]
Buy the Bag You Love, Not the One You Will Sell
Brands like Chanel continue to bet big on iconic, classic designs with proven staying power. Their Classic Flap and 2.55 Reissue bags have been around for decades.

An Entertaining Variety of Selections From Hermès Autumn/Winter 2022 Runway
While I occasionally complain about the negative impact of social media (the complete loss of any attention span, online outrage both real and faux, trolls, etc.), there are many great benefits – the increasing inter-connectedness of our communities, and, in particular for me, the instantaneous spread of information. So it was with great joy and […]
Do You Buy in Store or Online?

As you recuperate and look around, you encounter shelf after shelf of beautiful handbags, perhaps some in their […]

The weather in New York is very temperamental these days, so it’s not surprising to see stars donning heavy coats one day and light sweatshirts the next. New Yorkers never really know what to expect in March, so it’s best to triple-check the weather before heading out. While one day it’s 58 and sunny, the […]

Social Media Finds: The Jurse
