I was first introduced to the “purse hook” a few years ago on New Years at a bar in north Brooklyn. My friend Nadja sat down, felt around beneath the bar for a hook and then we exchanged what I thought was that universal lady dismay expression of, “There are no hooks at this bar and our bags shall have to be placed on the floor if there is not an empty seat beside us.”* But then!

It takes a special man to recognize how good women have it.
They call it “valuable,” but they mean expensive. More

What better way to honor this giant among packing materials than by giving it its own holiday? Furthermore, what better way to celebrate that holiday than by dressing entirely in bubble wrap?

Sometimes people at TheGloss are so open minded that our brains fall out, and we can’t remember whether or not it’s okay to spend $120,000 on a handbag.

Asshole Jen and Rational Jen are going to talk about this in a calm and civilized manner. More
Look, I know we’re not allowed to say this, but they are, aren’t they? They are ugly. I know that at charity events you praise the bag when they tell you it’s made out of recycled materials – I SEE … More

Sometimes my colleague Jessica Pauline Ogilvie will post pictures of a supremely beautiful clutch like this one or this one. I’ll stare longingly for awhile and then move on with my life, because the truth is that clutches for me are like babies: I can look at one for awhile and think it’s cute, but I will never own one.

The correct answer is “neither.” It’s something called a “Leather Shoe Pouch” and is made by Azumi and David. It costs $411. More
Juicy Couture: it’s not just for the girls who were mean to you in 7th grade anymore! We checked out their Holiday preview yesterday, and the designer noted that this collection was intended to be more mature. And the bags … More
As women, we simply cannot get around the fact that we will always have to carry a purse. Sometimes I try to challenge this theory by stuffing everything in my pockets, just as a man would. However, I always, ALWAYS regret it. Pockets are just not enough to house what the modern woman needs. I mean, I would love to see a pair of jeans that could hold my phone, wallet, keys, compact, lip gloss, In Touch Magazine, a hardback novel, phone charger, breath mints, hand sanitizer, emergency flip-flops — but I don’t think they exist.

A few months ago, a pile of new – and massive – phone books were dropped off in the lobby of my apartment building. Four weeks later, they were still there. Where will all these sad, unloved telephone books go? Perhaps to UrthBags, who takes old phone books and turns them into gorgeous bags, like the one above. More
