Ya – I am THAT hip…

by Janice

There are some definite bonuses to this blogging thing. The swag is celebrity-cool!

As you all know, the PR firms just clamor to get their products in front of you powerful moms. And I just happen to be stuck right there in the middle. Yes, some days it is really great to be me. (But if you are feeling a tad envious, ask my husband how he enjoys my bloggy job. He isn’t too happy with my never-ending work hours.)

My favorite pieces of swag that have landed in my lap are my purses by The Sak. These eye catching purses get me attention wherever I go. From the playground to BlogHer, people stop me all the time to comment on my purse.

But do you want to know the greatest thing about these purses? (Which I of course tell anyone who asks me about them.) The price!

For a reasonable price, you can adorn your day with a purse that is celebrity worthy. That is why I love The Sak. They are designer purses that normal moms can afford.

So, when my beloved The Sak PR rep emailed me to let me know that Miley Cyrus was spotted carrying The Sak Silverlake Convertible Satchel, I just had to let you know that yes, thanks to mommy blogging, I am THAT hip.

AND, like I said, if you want to have a gorgeous, high quality, designer purse that didn’t cost several hundred dollars, hit The Sak. Ya – we mom bloggers can be as hip as Miley Cyrus.

Shopping Hint: My two The Sak purses that I get all those great comments on are BOTH on sale right now for 25% off. This one is $89.25 and this one is $81.25. Seriously. Those are some great prices for some very cool purses.

Yum-o. I love purses. These are divine.

Ok so they have some really cute purses. Luck for me my current purse is about dead so I can actually convince my husband to let me get a new one.. typically he would say no because I used to have a collection of purses that took up about half the closet, and most of them we never used.. but since I’ve removed that and my current purse is almost dead I can have visions of one of these in my near future.

Nice bag. More than I normally pay, though. Are you giving one away?


6 Janice July 30, 2008 at 7:54 pm

Sounds like you might need to outsource more so you don’t have to work as much ;) Course, when we’re having fun it doesn’t seem like work.

I would love swag…what a fun part of the job!

I have heard alot of good things about the Sak bags. I might put this on my christmas list this year ;).


12 jessica July 31, 2008 at 1:08 am

it looks like the Sak bags have come a long way, when I hear the brand I think of the knit bags


13 Rebekah July 31, 2008 at 1:20 am

They are the best looking “saks” I have ever seen :D Isn’t that what all mommies need anyway, a big sack to throw everything into all at once, and now we can look good doing it :D


14 Marissa July 31, 2008 at 1:34 am

Those are some great looking purses. I agree with the above commenter that I always think of knit bags when I hear “the Sak.” Thanks for letting me see them in a whole new light!


15 Shelly July 31, 2008 at 7:45 am

What yummy purses! I love the ones you had picked out :o)


16 Michele July 31, 2008 at 9:28 am

To carry a “real” purse…oh how wonderful! Since your last post on Saks I’ve had a few of their purses on my birthday wish list!


17 willowsprite July 31, 2008 at 10:14 am

Yeah… I still can’t afford that…lol


18 kelleythejewelrylady July 31, 2008 at 1:18 pm

Thanks for the TIP! I love those purses!


19 Sheena July 31, 2008 at 5:04 pm

I want to open my inbox and find some CHIC pitches. I don’t only shop for groceries & cleaning products! I must seem to have no fashion sense! The Silverlake Canvas Crossbody is super cute & functional.


20 Faerylandmom July 31, 2008 at 5:41 pm

Ummm…$89 is not my idea of a great price for a purse. :-) But – I have to hand it to you – they are very chic!


21 lylah ledner August 1, 2008 at 2:24 pm

very cute indeed!


22 Janice August 4, 2008 at 1:10 am

Faerylandmom – $89 can definitely be hard on a tight budget. But I meant in comparison to some other designer bags that are often several hundred dollars – the Sak is affordable! :)
