  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. I don't mean "inspired" like when they use it as an excuse to create a knockoff or look-alike.
    I mean items that you purchased because it reminds you of Chanel in a way that makes you happy. Or familiar.

    Does anyone have any purchases to share?
    I will share my most recent purchase (which I absolutely love and adore):

    Purchased at Bloomingdales (link here), she is so slouchy, smooshy and lightweight.
    Totally reminds me of the Coco Cocoon ligne, but in a lightweight and super practical backpack.
    I also love the plastic zipper teeth; in this case, it is nice because it doesn't scratch my lambskin SLGs that I use to slip into the front pocket. Side stash pockets for phone also a huge plus.
  2. Heard of "text and drop"? Literally you can text and then drop it!
    Another purchase not as recent, but still fits the category... Bandolier iPhone 6S+ case with chain. Purchased at

    Yeah I know, I have an illness about the whole "on chain" thing, if anyone has been paying attention...
