Kate Spade NY 400th Anniversary Uptown/Downtown Tote

Choosing the bag of your dreams can be a tough one, but if your goal is something slightly more specific - say, celebrating the 400th anniversary of New York City - then you’re in luck. The new Kate Spade Uptown/Downtown Tote pays homage to the city in an entirely unique, cute way. The white side of this canvas carryall is “Uptown,” while the black is, fittingly, “Downtown.” Subway-inspired symbols dot the entire thing, but it’s inside where most of the intrigue lies. Two zippered pockets are etched with little gems only a true Manhattanite could appreciate - “Counting Stars. Grand Central Station.” and “Don’t Mind the Line. The Shake Shack.” among them. If you’re one (or know one), you’ll want to get your hands on it before it’s gone.

Rebecca Minkoff sample sale this week end

With tons of A-list fans, and cute designs that are truly functional, I don’t need to tell you all that much about one of Purse Page’s favorite designers. However, I am happy to tell you that those of you in the Washington D.C. area are finally getting the attention you deserve. I know that most of the sample sales we list are either in NYC or the West Coast. The folks at Rebecca Minkoff have noticed how many of you stylish citizens don’t always have the chance to shop in these cities and is offering heavily discounted merchandise to you this weekend.
