Two weeks ago, I was so lucky to be invited to preview Juicy Couture’s holiday handbag line — a collection of some of my favorite New York bloggers met up with their handbag designer, Kirsten Schwinn, and ooh-ed and aaah-ed over all the new bags.  It was so fun to catch up with everyone, and to hear about all the different considerations that go into designing a line of bags.

So, let me just say.  I’m pretty sure Kristen has the Best.  Job.  Ever.  I mean, seriously?  Maybe I just love handbags a little too much, but how amazing would it be to spend all day long perfecting the perfect purse?  Sign me up for that.

It was really interesting to hear her talk about how Juicy Couture is changing, too — although we’ll always think of those matching tracksuits, the line is going for a more modern update, staying true to their core customers but making sure that everything feels contemporary for this season.  I loved that the bags ran the gamut from understated and chic to totally glam.  I’m obsessed with the sequin clutch we received in the gift bag — totally gorgeous.  Read more about the event on the Juicy Couture blog!

Last but not least, the winner of my Life As We Know It giveaway is Kem, @kemelliott!  I’ll be sending an email later today for your address!

Many thanks to Jonathan Alpeyrie for taking the top photo for this post — he came with Lindsey of Saucy Glossy and generously agreed to shoot some for me too!

    The shot of the showroom is such a great pic – I love seeing the innerworkings of the big boys (or girls). :)

    From Forever 21!  I got it last summer — it must be a seasonal thing, because I haven’t seen headbands there since then!
