About




I’m Anna, and I’m a handbag connoisseur.

When I meet a new handbag, it’s like greeting an old friend. I say, out loud, “hello, handbag.” I take it out for coffee or happy hour, introduce it to my friends, and generally put it through the ringer so I can be sure it's perfect. It's like dating, but with handbags instead of boys.

I started Hello, Handbag because, as much as I love drooling for hours over next season’s Prada or Hermes, but they’re not in my budget. I could never find a reliable resource for new handbags that fit my lifestyle. Hello, Handbag is a way to channel my handbag obsession, and hopefully provide resources for others.

I write about handbags, and I write for people who love handbags. I review the bags you want, and introduce you to your new best friend by a brand you’ve never heard of. I tend to write about:
  • handbag reviews
  • sale alerts
  • street style
  • niche brands
  • trends
  • bags that make the world better
  • and sometimes I throw in tidbits about fashion, culture or life

A little about me:
  • I live in sunny Los Angeles. You'll find me at brunch at the Grove or the Beverly Center over the weekends, and searching for LA's best chicken wings on weeknights.
  • I love anything elephants. Clothing, bags, jewelry, and most of all my adopted elephant Quanza.
  • Beijing, Chiang Mai, and Machu Picchu are next on my travel list.

Product review policy:

If you’d like to send products for review, please contact me for mailing information. It's a treat to review products that I love, but please note that I write honest appraisals regardless of freebies.

I'd love to hear from you. Drop me a line at hellohandbagblog@gmail.com.
