Handbago loves when designers take the time to give back to a good cause. Lauren Merkin is a perfect example of a designer who makes a difference. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Lauren Merkin makes a point of releasing a pink item every year to show her on-going support for Breast Cancer awareness and education. This year she designed a gorgeous Fuschia Tile Embossed Lamb Large Wallet!

I love my laptop, but taking it to work or to school always means dealing with the hassle of carrying a bulky laptop bag in addition to my usual handbag. Two handbags usually are better than one, but a girl's MAC or PC requires a little more care and attention than a pair of heels. Enter Big Shirley, a fashionable new handbag and laptop bag in one from designer Charles L. Thomas.
True or false, ladies: one of the coolest parts about having a bunch of girlfriends is the ability to share or swap each others' clothes. We've all done it, and it's always a win-win situation because someone gets a great "new" item while another gets rid of something that's merely taking up vital closet space. But what if your girlfriends' closets simply faily to satisfy your hunger for new (or gently used) apparel?
Getting lost on the New York Subway and walking a couple of blocks the wrong way didn't stop me from checking out the StefaniBags "Shopping and Sangria" Trunk Show last night. The handbag database and shopping website brought some of their fabulous inventory to the Butterfly Studio, a luxury salon and boutique located in Manhattan's Flatiron District. Shoppers were invited to nibble on snacks and sip on sangria as they browsed through the same gorgeous handbags found on the website.
First Fashion's Night Out, then Jillian Lewis, and now Peter Som! Beirn had their hands full throughout New York Fashion Week by working with some of the city's top designers. Models were spotted on Wednesday exiting the Peter Som Spring 2010 Presentation at Milk Studios each carrying a "Jenna" Hobo, gifts from sponsor Beirn New York.
Beirn New York showcased some of its latest handbags and clutches as a primary sponsor of designer and Project Runway Season 4 finalist Jillian Lewis' Spring/Summer 2010 presentation at the Audi Forum in Manhattan on September 9th. Carried by stone-faced models dressed in a subdued palette of silvers, golds, black, lavender, and cremes, Beirn's brightly hued selection of their trademark watersnake bags stood out, serving as the perfect eye-catching accessories to Lewis' newest collection.

Fashion's Night Out was so huge that the Beirn New York team was in two places at once! Not only were they representing Beirn at Bergdorf Goodman, but they were also offering custom batik monogram prints on any new "Jenna" bag purchase at the Henri Bendel boutique on 56th Street and 5th Avenue in Manhattan. Shoppers had a wide array of styles and colors of "Jenna" to choose from even before adding the monogram print for that extra personalized touch to make their Beirn bag a truly one-of-a-kind piece.
New York can't get enough of Beirn! Their beautiful collection of colorful watersnake handbags are quickly becoming style staples of women in the big city. The proof?
