Our Go-To Purse Blogger Reveals Her Dream Bag

Some people are addicted to shoes. Others, chopsticks. For Meaghan Mahoney Dusil, her insatiable obsession is bags. With her business partner-husband Vladimir Dusil, Megs started Purse Blog in 2005 to help other bag ladies (and gents!) around the world discover, nurture, and share their own handbag lust.
From porny shots of Céline bags with cocktails to the best take on "What's In Her Bag?" on the web, Purse Blog is our go-to when we're craving a bag-related fix. We asked Meaghan (and Vlad!) to let us in on five of the things they're all about right now…start guessing now which which bag she picked!

1. One Lucky Duck Tiramisu — I'm obsessed with desserts and am constantly trying out new sweet treats. Right now, I can't live without the delicious (really!) raw vegan tiramisu from One Lucky Duck in Gramercy Park. I feel slightly better about my sweet tooth when I'm opting for a dessert made mostly of raw nuts, especially as bikini season approaches.

2. Tibi Silk Long Dress — One of my favorite clothing brands is Tibi, and with wedding season upon us, I have been eying multiple dresses there, to wear to friends' nuptials. I adore maxi dresses, and the colorblocking on this one, along with the sexy open back, make it the perfect summer go-to. On top of that though, I have at least five other Tibi dresses I would love to have in my closet immediately.

3. Yves Saint Laurent YSL Cabas Chyc — I'm a bag lady, of course, and I'm always looking for a new handbag to add to my collection. After seeing this exact Yves Saint Laurent bag on an incredibly chic woman, I knew I had to have it. Both elegant and classic, the Cabas Chyc is ideal for anyone who wants a stylish bag that retains a bit of subtlety. The sky blue leather reminds me of summer days and will work well with nearly every outfit in my wardrobe.

4. Hermes Elephant King Towel — My husband and I are headed to the Hamptons to kick off summer this weekend, and our getaway is all I can think of right now. Long days under the sun call for cute bikinis and comfortable towels. Hermès makes the most delightful towels in vibrant colors and fun patterns, and this design in particular is currently at the top of my wish list.

5. One and Only Ocean Club, Bahamas — For the past few summers, my husband (who is also my business partner) and I have made a trip to this resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas. It has become a tradition, and I am dreaming of the crystal blue ocean, superb service, relaxing atmosphere and island living.
