Product Review: Audrey & Emma Purse Liners

November 28th, 2011 | Product Reviews

You guys know that I love the Lonchamp Le Pliage but the Le Pliage does have its issues. Since it’s made to be folded and flexible, it doesn’t always stay upright when you set it down and it can sag a bit when not full. I had resigned myself to these problems until I was introduced to Audrey & Emma.

Audrey & Emma makes purse liners for Longchamp Le Pliage and Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 bags. An Audrey & Emma purse liner protects and shapes your bag. It keeps your purse from sagging while you carry it and also adds a flat layer to the bottom of your bag so it will sit upright when you set it down.

They were nice enough to let me try out a 10″ Le Pliage liner and it was pretty great. My bag kept its shape, even when it wasn’t stuffed to the gills, and also sat up perfectly when I put it on a tabletop or on the floor. Another thing I discovered is that the Le Pliage liner can make it easier to find things in my Longchamp. Because my Le Pliage is lined in black, trying to locate something is like looking into a black hole, but the white, beige or striped liner would add some contrast and make things so much easier to find. And the Audrey & Emma liner’s usefulness is not limited to the Le Pliage-It also helped add some structure to a J.Crew tote I recently bought.

Audrey & Emma purse liners are made in the US from 100% recycled materials and they donate a portion of the proceeds to the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund, which works to support organizations around the world dedicated to improving the lives of children. Each one comes beautifully wrapped and since it’s that time of year, could make a great gift for the purse lover in your life.

Pouchee Purse Organizer Review

July 25th, 2011 | Product Reviews

Purse organizers

I change purses a lot in the summertime. I’m going from crossbody to hobo to clutch constantly and it’s such a pain to move everything from one purse to another. I invariably forget something and then have to go searching for a lip gloss, hair clip, or wad of cash that I didn’t grab. Luckily there are people trying to solve this problem and the folks at Pouchee were nice enough to send me a Pouchee purse organizer to try out.

I think everyone will use the Pouchee differently. I use mine in addition to my normal wallet and it is so nice not to have to dig around in the bottom of my bag when I need to find something. The Pouchee has slots for everything-credit cards, keys, pens, cell phone, you name it. It has a zipper pouch inside as well as a open space that can hold whatever you need. (more…)
