I took an unexpected break from blogging. But I am back!

When Ania from Pursebox approached me to collaborate on a giveaway I first checked out her website and then said yes. A site that caters to the Canadian consumer and offers great handbags that are all easily found in our neighbour to the south, I was in. Here’s why Pursebox was started:

Pursebox was created to fill a big gap in the Canadian accessories market. Our mission? To bring in exciting new handbag styles and brands that give Canadians the awesome options they’ve been missing. Pursebox focuses on contemporary brands, bringing you fashion-forward yet practical and functional handbags and fun accessories at a great price points.

Why is that a big deal?

Canadian retailers all seem to stock the same brands, and let’s be honest, there isn’t much middle ground between the low end and the extreme high end when it comes to purse shopping… Especially if you’re looking for something fashion-forward. What have Canadians been doing? Buying purses that leave either style or quality to be desired… Or ordering from US online retailers and paying high fees when it comes to shipping and duties. Ever opened your front door, exited to get your hands on your shiny new purse, just to be asked to pay an additional exorbitant fee? So have we. And that’s why we’re here.

Welcome to Pursebox. On your way in, wave a sly goodbye to high shipping fees, additional duties at delivery and complicated cross-border returns. We side with the consumers, and well, we aim to make you happy.

For today’s post I’m featuring the Status Anxiety – Law of the Wild – Cheetah Crossbody. My mother has been telling me for a while that I need to downsize my bag because it’s going to hurt my back. Right now it’s my shoulder. This crossbody is the perfect size – it holds everything I need and at $179 an affordable option made with Italian Leather and Pony hair. Some of you are thinking “Again with the jogger pants.” I know, I know.

    I would style it with jeans, v neck sweater and colourful scarf


    This bag needs to stand out on its own so I would definitely wear it with a simple outfit – long, loose over-the-shoulder tunic, black leggings and pumps 🙂


    Aside from wearing it over my swanky Black Canada Goose jacket as we’re in -18 temps already (uuugh) I’d pair it with something simple – my rag n’ bone skinny jeans, with a loose white v-neck top. Accessories are a must of course,an infinity scarf, or scarf that I can wrap in a nice way. Definitely will sport my ankle booties for as long as I can, if not, some stylish brown boots.
