  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 was in the Marc Jacobs accessories store yesterday and there was a Pan Am bag on the counter. I touched it, picked it up and decided I didn't want it. I just called about it and the clerk said the one I had in my hand was one they'd found in the stockroom when they were making space for other items. I am bummed. So close. It was almost mine.
  2. You're bummed because they don't have it anymore?

  3. I know the feeling. The Pan Am bag, although adorable, is a little too kitchsy/novelty for me too. Don't be bummed. MJ is a genius..he'll dream up something even more adorable.
  4. it's ok! if you didn't want it in the moment and didn't feel that tug, then you know it wasn't for you! it's ok, ferragamo fiend is right, something great will come soon!
  5. And next time, I won't hesitate.
