It’s our favorite day of the year! A day created especially for our favorite people in the world...It’s National Girlfriends Day! This year, we’ve chosen to celebrate with our favorite dynamic duo: Erica and Ryan, the co-founders of the inspirational blog She Only Lives Once!
Erica and Ryan have committed their lives to empowering young women and creating uplifting, positive content to battle against the negative messages that are scattered throughout social media. Here at pursecase, we make our cases for determined women on-the-go like our friends at SOLO, hoping to make positive changes in our world in the little ways that we can.
We hope that with the help of their pursecases, Erica and Ryan can go hands-free to do the things that they love, like continuing to explore Los Angeles, stay active, and encourage young women to be their best selves! Happy National Girlfriends Day everyone, and check out Erica and Ryan’s work at @SheOnlyLivesOnce on Instagram!
At pursecase HQ, we are so lucky to be based out of the beautiful Santa Monica for a million reasons. Among them are the famous beaches, restaurants, nightlife, and our personal favorite: the Twilight Concert series at the Santa Monica Pier each summer!
A Los Angeles gem and annual tradition, the Twilight Concerts at the Pier have been up and running July through September for the last 32 years and counting. With an Instagram worthy sunset on the beach behind the stage, each week is a different style of music, so there’s something for everyone!
Pursecase is the perfect accessory for community events like these, where all you need is good friends, a little bit of cash for parking and drinks, and your phone to document the whole experience on Snapchat! Tonight, catch us setting up camp with our favorite takeout on the pier as we check out Psychedelic Furs and Day Wave. See you there!
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!

Hey pursecase fans!
Summer is almost here! Although we always look back on the years of summer vacation from when we were younger as a time to relax, as an adult, summer can still feel pretty hectic. Here at pursecase HQ, things can get busy during the summer and we’ve officially settled into an office coffee addiction. Although we’re often split between Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks Coffee, in an effort to think more locally and support the Santa Monica (and greater Los Angeles) community, we’re looking for suggestions! Our new favorite neighborhood coffee shop is Groundwork Coffee over on 16th and Montana. There’s something too perfect about how calm we feel staring into our cups filled with perfect cappuccinos….until the caffeine hits us an hour later! Let us know your favorite coffee in the comments below, and we’ll go visit a few! We’re looking to settle our office coffee debates once and for all!
Since pursecase World Headquarters is located in sunny Santa Monica, California, we thought it was about time we designed a line to pay tribute to our roots!
Introducing PCH by pursecase!
Marina del Rey is a scenic mix of beautiful waterways and colorful boats nestled on the southern route of historic PCH. Tourists and locals alike flock towards the Marina to rent kayaks, take boat tours, relax at neighboring beaches, and enjoy meals at the many waterfront restaurants. Marina del Rey by pursecase is your perfect companion to ensure you’re stylinanddialin at this nautical LA hot spot.
Venice Beach, just North of Marina del Rey on PCH, is best known as the vibrant and progressive hangout for Southern California’s creative and artistic. Venice is an eclectic, funky beachfront where street performers entertain passing crowds while sidewalk vendors line the boardwalk selling homemade trinkets. The Venice pursecase is the perfect statement for beach bums who are looking to stand out!
Santa Monica has a laid-back beach town atmosphere with big city sophistication. For a small city along PCH, Santa Monica plays an influential role in the cultural lifestyle of Southern California drawing visitors from around the globe. The Santa Monica pursecase plays tribute to our SoCal roots while revamping one of our best-selling colors from the original pursecase line. Now, sing it with us…“All I wanna do is have some fun, I got a feeling I’m not the only one. All I wanna do is have some fun, until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard.”
Malibu occupies 21 miles of beautiful beaches along PCH. Sprinkled with lavish homes, lush greenery, premiere boutiques, and exclusive restaurants, Malibu is home to many of the World’s most rich and famous. The Malibu pursecase embodies the community’s poise, allure, style and tranquility.
