  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. On a more humorous note. We were walking up to one of the best restaurants in Portland, right in front of about 10 other people and the 2 valet guys, when all of the sudden I stepped in a hole on the sidewalk and went down to the ground. My son and 3 girls were with me. My son helps me up and says, "oh mommy are you okay" (he's my sweet 14 year old). My three girls say, "OMG is your purse okay", "did you scratch your purse", "Oh I hope it's okay". All the people around us must have thought they were nuts. Needless to say, I am leaving on our annual skiing vacation to Bend on the 26th and my ankle is the size of a cantaloupe. I guess I'll have to take my computer to the lodge with me and shop ebay. (Birkin has no scratches, she's fine even though she helped break my fall)
