The latest smartphone trend that has everyone buzzing is the new augmented reality game Pokemon GO. For those of you who haven’t caught Pokemon fever yet, the game uses your phone’s GPS to determine where you are and makes Pokemon ‘appear’ around you on your screen so you can catch ‘em! The game is the first of its kind as it encouraged you to travel around in the real world in order to catch Pokemon in the game. Pokemon GO has caught on like wildfire and people are hunting Pokemon wherever they go. One girl even found a dead body whilst searching for Pokemon…
One great aspect of Pokemon GO is that it encourages the players to go outside and be active. Gaming is usually blamed for keeping people indoors and idle but Pokemon GO is doing the exact opposite. By placing Pokemon literally everywhere the game allows players to catch’em whether they are at home, work, out for dinner etc. and giving people the little boost they need to walk down just a few more streets. As well as encouraging people out of their homes the game is encourage people into shops such as Sephora, Forever 21 and seemingly ever mall in America. Mixing nerdy, nostalgic gaming with fashion is definitely something we support!
If you fancy spicing up your summer wardrobe with some Pokemon inspired fashion accessories- look no further!! Don’t forget to catch ‘em all!

Girls we need to let you know of some big news that
we are SO excited for.
Ah its that time of year again. The leaves are falling the, the air is just a little bit nippier and pursecases are flying off the shelves. With thanksgiving approaching, that means Black Friday is almost here as well. As an office we have decided we HATE the traditional Black Friday. Each of us had horror story after horror story to tell about the craziness that ensues on Black Friday. Since we have all decided against the 3am wake up call to shop next friday we’ve decided to fight against it! Instead of going out and shopping we encourage you to stay in and relax. Although as a little incentive, we are doing a 24 hour Black Friday Flash Sale starting 11/27/15 at 12am until 11/28/15 at 12am PST. What will be on sale you might ask? Well thats for us to know and you to find out! But just a hint, its some of your favorites! So sit back and relax and wait for the 27th to swing around because the sale will be worth it and perfectly timed for the upcoming holiday season as well.
Additionally as an added bonus of christmas cheer we have decided to put on an Instagram contest to really spread some joy. To enter the contest instagram a selfie with your pursecase and hashtag #thankfulforpursecase. On Black friday we will be announcing the winner who will get a purse case of their choosing!
Stay tuned our friends and check out our website on the 27th ;)
Following the success of the spring collection of pursecase inspired by the beautiful PCH, it just seemed right to venture across the country to the East Coast and take inspiration from the alluring bright lights of bustling New York City. From the artistic walls of Brooklyn, to the royal streets of the Upper East Side, over to the academic and sophisticated West Village and then down to trendy SoHo, our team was struck with the beauty of this city that is so different from our home. We loved strolling the streets and seeing the bright and diverse colors of these places. Just like the colors of this new collection, each of these small parts of town are unique and beautiful in their own right.
What really struck our team about Brooklyn was the electric style of the people within it as well as the amazingly special art scene that populates not only the galleries of this excitement packed neighborhood, but the walls and streets as well.
UPPER EAST SIDE
We then traveled to the Upper East Side and immediately noticed how much the upscale and fashion-filled neighborhood had to offer.
From there, the picturesque and student filled streets of the West Village drew our eye because it really optimized the girl-on-the-go attitude that encapsulates the pursecase brand.
Finally landing on the fire escape clad buildings of SoHo we knew that the streets of New York was the perfect place to draw inspiration from, with this neighborhood offering a trendy and desirable aesthetic that no one could turn down!
Take a look at the collection and dive into the rich culture and unique style of NYC today!
Being headquartered in sunny and sublime downtown Santa Monica, we often have the opportunity to interact with with other budding startups in the growing We Are LA Tech community.
That being said, this community of entrepreneurs (as one would expect from a group of knowledge hungry execs) can never get enough of that schmoozing spirit, and we are often looking for the next happening to show up, speak up, and (let's be honest) show off. After all, this is LA Tech, and the next startup star is always just around the corner.
This past Thursday, a new kind of entrepreneurial event experience stepped up to bat, courtesy of Be Great Partners.
When one thinks techies, bootstraps, and binary code (oh my!) the first thing that comes to mind is never glitz or glamour. But when the pursecase team walked into historic landmark and event venue, Mark Sennett Studios where #TechLA Summer Jam was in full swing, we might as well have been waltzing onto set of one of the countless film, television, music, or fashion productions that preceded this Silicon extravaganza.
We slipped into Stage 1 just in time for our Co-Founder, Kelley Coughlan to take the stage for The e-Commerce Economy in L.A panel along with Farbod Shoraka of BloomNation, Bryan Lalezarian of MeUndies, and Steffen Hoffman of DSTLD Jeans.
Moderated by Be Great Partners' Founding & Managing Partner, Lin Miao, the panelists started with the usual 'about me' and polite 'show and tell' that we're all used to after haunting so many industry events.
What could have ended with the usual drop of some trade power words (i.e. disrupt...pivot...yawn), hang-in-there-advice, and a few big thumbs up on the 'art of failure' - instead went a little further...
The overt confidence and accessible simplicity of each and every panelist's answers to Miao's questions left the audience all nodding at what seemed to be an overall renewed satisfaction and acceptance of power associated with quite simply: the marriage of a great product and a great person behind it from the start.

Early Monday morn, June 30th, pursecase was in the silver screen spotlight once again on ABC's THE VIEW! Our hearts are still buzzing with the news, and with Jenny McCarthy singling us out on national TV!
Also, don't forget that summertime is quickly being spent, and pursecase is the perfect accessory for beach season, pool season, graduation season and wedding season.
(just ask this guy...)
