Hi mary,

  1. Hobo International Clio Wallet | Simple Red Leather Accordion-Style Pocketbook - 2009-10-12 12:22:40-04
    A good wallet isn't necessarily difficult to find, but finding one that will last for years and will switch easily from purse to purse is not always the easiest task. For that kind of wallet, Hobo International is a great place to start. It seems ironic that a company with the word "hobo" in the title [...]
  2. Dolce and Gabbana Leopard Print Bowler | Large D&G Studded Animal Print Tote - 2009-10-12 15:16:09-04
    Dolce and Gabbana have produced an on trend and functional bowler with this chunky animal print bag. There is something enticingly sophisticated about this square bowler, despite the print which some will love and some will hate. Whilst leopard print (or animal print of any description) generally looks slightly tacky or trendily energetic, D&G have resisted the urge [...]
  3. Neiman Marcus Releases Autographed Carlos Falchi Tote Bags for Christmas - 2009-10-12 18:48:35-04
    High-end department store Neiman Marcus has teamed up with comeback kid Carlos Falchi to create a limited edition tote bag collection for Christmas. Each tote is crafted from microfiber, embossed with python-print for a little extra festive glitz. The shoulder straps have a long 10-inch drop, perfect for comfortable carrying while you're taking care of the [...]
  4. Tudor-Era Manbag Found on Sunken Warship to Go on Display in England - 2009-10-12 20:53:03-04
    It appears that the infamous "manbag" that many attribute to today's metrosexual trend is not as recent of an addition to the fashion world as we might have originally thought. In fact, leather handbags for men dates back even to the days of King Henry VII. Among the many artifacts found aboard the sunken warship, the [...]
  5. Guess Oyster Satchel Bag | Colorblock Diagonal Striped Handbag - 2009-10-13 02:05:55-04
    Guess is always one to jump on the trend bandwagon. With the Oyster satchel, the brand follows the current taste for colorblock accessories. Colorblock designs offer a very specific look, and one which isn't likely to last beyond a season or two. Yet the complementary blend of colors here might help you carry the Oyster a [...]
  6. Solange Knowles' Handbag and Bicycle Stolen | Soul Singer Rants on Twitter After Theft - 2009-10-13 03:05:17-04
    Solange Knowles, the soul singing sister of Beyonce Knowles, is the latest victim of handbag theft. The singer awoke on Sunday to find her handbag and bicycle gone. Solange is always seen carrying a hot handbag from edgy upcoming labels like CC Skye and Samantha Thavasa. Yet she seems more torn up about losing the bike, [...]
  7. Gustto Picia Shoulder Bag | Ruched Patent Leather and Black Nylon Handbag - 2009-10-13 04:05:31-04
    Gustto combines the party-appeal of patent leather with the relaxed charms of nylon to create the Picia. Under the hands of a lesser designer the combination could seem confused, but I think Gustto may have just pulled it off. Without the patent leather, this nylon carryall would be shapeless, and frankly, a little boring. But that [...]
  8. Treesje Divino Shoulder Bag | Lambskin Leather Purse with Ruffles and Zippers - 2009-10-13 16:39:48-04
    Ruffled detail isn't something I'm accustomed to seeing on a design from the typically edgy and trendy brand Treesje. So this Divino shoulder bag with its use of the feminine detail definitely caught my eye. The way that the tiny ruffles are added to the edges of the front and back zippered pockets as well as [...]
  9. Coach Bonnie Cashin Wallet | Bold Graphic Colorful Wristlet - 2009-10-13 17:46:23-04
    If you want a well-respected Coach handbag with a bit of a different edge, then one of their graphic pieces is a great option. Inspired by their first designer, Bonnie Cashin, this cute and colorful slogan wristlet can perk up even the dullest winter day. In vivd shades and with a stylish scribbled image, this little purse is [...]
  10. Luxury Label Mont Charles Debuts In-Store Boutique with Limited Edition Handbag Collection - 2009-10-13 21:20:50-04
    Paris Fashion Week brought with it a rush of new styles and tons of high fashion and elegance. It also ushered in the launch of a limited edition handbag collection from Mont Charles de Monaco, which is regarded as the "premier high fashion label of the Principality of Monaco." In addition to an haute couture runway [...]
  11. Hobo International Solano Tote | Stylish Double Braided Italian Goat Leather Handbag - 2009-10-14 02:05:24-04
    Hobo International accessories tend to be smart, but just a little boring. This Solano breaks the mold, combining sophistication and style. Tiny pleats at the top of the bag create diamond shapes, providing a unique alternative to traditional quilting. There's texture here, but it's not predictable. These tight pleats give way to softer, subtler folds down [...]
  12. Hermes Handbag Sold for Peanuts at Scottish Charity Store - 2009-10-14 03:05:07-04
    A Scottish stylista recently bagged a bargain, after paying just a few hundred pounds for a Hermes handbag. The prized purse was sold at the Cancer Research UK shop in Pitlochry, Perthshire. It's estimated that the bag was worth at least £1500, but the store owners were happy to accept the much smaller donation. "Myself and Sarah, [...]
  13. Hype Mia Tote | Large Croc-Embossed Leather North-South Bag - 2009-10-14 04:05:18-04
    It's got a little name, but the Mia tote from Hype is big, bright, and bold! This larger than life handbag has enough space inside to hold everything you need, and enough style to impress. The finish is billed as crocodile-embossed leather, but nobody is going to believe this is a genuine exotic. The tiny irregular [...]
  14. Forzieri Capaf Wicker Basket | Funky Retro Inspired Straw Handbag - 2009-10-14 13:49:35-04
    Forzieri Capaf have produced a cool little handbag with this monochromatic wicker purse. The shape, first off, is exciting. Square and chunky, this purse is reminiscent of vintage styling, 60's fashion and utilising odd materials, all interspersed with memories of picnic baskets and childhood days out. If the nostalgia hasn't sold it to you already, Forzieri Capaf bring [...]
  15. LeSportsac Kasey Crossbody | Whimsical Nylon Handbag in Owl Print - 2009-10-14 15:44:58-04
    LeSportsac is not exactly a trendsetting brand, at least as far as the majority of the fashion world goes. However, this company offers nothing less than the most practical bags imaginable without inducing boredom. This Kasey Crossbody is a testament to the brand's marriage of convenience and cuteness. The nylon material that covers the inside and outside of the [...]
  16. Sneak Peek of Carlos Falchi for Target Line | Win One of the Handbags from InStyle - 2009-10-14 16:53:29-04
    It's simply fabulous when luxury labels collaborate with budget fashionista favorite Target. A few months ago, we heard about the upcoming diffusion line for the retail store from exotic skin-loving designer Carlos Falchi. Well, Falchi followers, we now have a tiny peek into what we can expect from the limited time collection. No surprise that the line will feature [...]
  17. Inge Christopher Bubbles Minaudiere | Chic Champagne Lambskin Oval Evening Purse - 2009-10-15 02:05:41-04
    It sounds like a frothy concoction, but the Bubbles minaudiere from Inge Christopher is actually a sleek and chic clutch. The misleading moniker comes from the champagne toned lambskin finish, which is every bit as luxurious as it sounds. The slightly shimmery skin is complemented by gleaming gold-toned hardware. With its structured frame and push button [...]
  18. Burberry's Sales Up Despite Financial Crisis | British Handbag Brand Defies Global Trends - 2009-10-15 03:05:01-04
    British luxury brand Burberry has followed up its successful showing at London Fashion Week with improved sales figures. The group's shares are up by more than 3%, thanks to the enthusiasm for Burberry's fall and winter collections. Handbags and casual outerwear proved particularly popular with shoppers preparing for cold weather. Like-for-like sales in Burberry outlets rose by [...]
  19. Kathrine Baumann Barbie Minaudiere | Three-Dimensional Swarovski Crystal Doll Head Evening Bag - 2009-10-15 04:05:29-04
    Kathrine Baumann has gone all out to celebrate Barbie's 50th anniversary with the release of this three-dimensional minaudiere. Kathrine Baumann's trademark Swarovski crystals help to recreate everyone's favorite plastic doll. Golden sparkling gems make up her iconic blonde mane, while blue stones give her eyes just the right sparkle. This is a tiny purse, and storage space [...]
  20. Hobo International Rocklin Flapover Clutch | Unique Smocked Leather Handbag - 2009-10-15 18:06:34-04
    Although I am rather fond of Hobo International's simple, clean lines, the brand does tend to be a tad safe sometimes. Unlike other labels who are constantly pushing the envelope with handbag fashion, Hobo International sticks with the basics plus a few modern details. However, they generally do it beautifully with only a few predictable [...]
  21. Katherine Fleming Combines Classic Feminine Style with Ocean-Inspired Details for Spring Handbags - 2009-10-15 18:51:10-04
    Katherine Fleming is a rising star in the world of accessories thanks to some celebrity fans and new faithful followers. This American designer, who was until recently Design Director of Accessories for Tory Burch, officially launched her own handbag line in the fall of 2008. With celebrities like Naomi Watts and Agyness Deyn seen toting around [...]
  22. Kathy Van Zeeland Heartbeat Satchel | Shiny Synthetic Handbag with Diagonal Zips - 2009-10-16 02:05:11-04
    Kathy Van Zeeland fans are sure to feel their heart race when they clamp eyes on the Heartbeat satchel. But for the rest of us, it probably won't be love at first sight. Kathy Van Zeeland knows her market, and she gives them what they want. The shiny synthetic looks a little tacky, but it does [...]
  23. Jimmy Choo and Elton John Launch Photographic Competition | Win Designer Shoes and Handbags - 2009-10-16 03:05:55-04
    Following the announcement of Jimmy Choo and Elton John's designer collaboration for AIDS initiative Project PEP, the fashionable pair has launched a photographic competition. Your entry will need three things: you, your favorite shoe, and the number 72. The number is significant as Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) must be administered within 72 hours of exposure to [...]
  24. Kenneth Cole Reaction Bar None Satchel | Sophisticated Simple Leather Mist Blue Handbag - 2009-10-16 04:05:52-04
    The Bar None satchel from Kenneth Cole's Reaction line is a bag for no-nonsense girls. The lack of bells and whistles may disappoint some, but its combination of high quality materials and functional design is sure to win fans. The body is reminiscent of a barrel bag with its soft, sexy curves. A splash of polished [...]
  25. Maxx New York Shiny Patent Tote | Cherry Red Spacious Hold-all - 2009-10-16 13:08:02-04
    If you want to inject a bit of class into your everyday hold-all then think about opting for a colorful beauty, such as this Maxx New York cherry red tote. Having a bag that wows people is brilliant and is even more so when it is a chunky spacious holdall. Generally you pay the price for [...]
  26. B. Makowsky Lites Greenwich E/W Tote | Basic Brown Leather Tote with Lots of Storage - 2009-10-16 17:26:26-04
    Every gal needs a good basic, stylish tote bag. It's an essential wardrobe piece and an addition that's ideal for those days when you've just got to grab-and-go while getting ready. We all have them, right? There are also times when entirely practical has to accompany basic and stylish. That's where B. Makowsky got it right with this Lites Greenwich E/W [...]
  27. Proenza Schouler Gets Sporty for Spring/Summer 2010 Collection of Handbags - 2009-10-16 23:34:37-04
    New spring and summer handbag designs have been drifting down recent fashion week runways on the arms and wrists of decked-out models, and the styles we've seen are as varied as the mind can imagine. In a completely opposite vibe from Versace's "Alice in Wonderland" girl-fest of prints and color, celebrity favorite Proenza Schouler went for sporty [...]
  28. Kooba Blake Shoulder Bag | Bright Orange Patent Leather Carryall - 2009-10-17 02:05:33-04
    With its bright orange finish and massive size, it's impossible to ignore a bag like Kooba's Blake. It's crafted from patent leather, but the surface isn't as glossy as many on the market. It's a good thing too, because a color this bright doesn't need to look more daring! To that end, Kooba keeps the design [...]
  29. Twilight Makes Stitch & Swash Handbags a Hit | Waiting List for Bella Bags - 2009-10-17 03:05:46-04
    A starring role in the Twilight movie made Stitch & Swash bags an overnight sensation. Seattle designer Angie Bowlds has been inundated with orders since Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart, carried a Stitch & Swash tote in the cult vampire film. "It's an everyday bag that's easy to throw things in. [Bella] didn't have to [...]
  30. Timmy Woods Kris Kringle Purse | Novelty Kitsch Christmas Themed Bag - 2009-10-17 13:27:38-04
    Timmy Woods does occasionally produce some genius bags. Lovingly constructed out of luxury materials, they are glossy and unusual and more like art than a handbag. When not designing these purses, however, Timmy Woods has a strange fondness for novelty bags. With purses like this little Kris Kingle Christmas purse it is apparent that he may well [...]
  31. Roxy Staying Alive Cross-Body | Casual Washed Blue Synthetic Tote - 2009-10-17 17:10:00-04
    Roxy is known for casual, carefree styles. That's exactly what you get with this Staying Alive Cross-Body tote bag. Although not denim, it definitely has the appearance of a wonderfully broken-in, relaxed pair of jeans. In fact, it's not even leather but rather synthetic material that gives the impression of washed leather. Roxy gave us a double [...]
  32. Designer Label Balmain Reveals New Handbag Collection | Bags to Hit Net-A-Porter Soon - 2009-10-17 21:26:19-04
    It's a rare day for me to be calling a $1,900 handbag a surprisingly affordable option. Well, maybe I wouldn't quite call it affordable, but I was at least somewhat pleasantly surprised by the starting price point of designer label Balmain's highly anticipated handbag line. For a label whose items include a nearly $14,000 leather jacket for sale [...]
  33. L.A.M.B. Williamsfield Tote Bag | Cute Sheep Print Fabric Handbag - 2009-10-18 02:05:03-04
    Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. label shows it knows how to have fun with this Williamsfield Tote. The front of the tote sports the image of a very regal looking lamb. The crowned cutie only adorns the front, but the chain link design wraps around the back. There's also another tiny gold sheep. It's those little details that [...]
  34. Mascotte and G24 Innovations Design Eco-Friendly Solar Powered Bags for Gadget Lovers - 2009-10-18 03:05:06-04
    Bags just became more high-tech and eco-friendly thanks to G24 Innovations. The company has created dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs), which are thin, inexpensive, and operable indoors. These innovative cells have become part of Mascotte's latest bag collection. But why would anyone want a solar-powered bag, you ask? It's simple. Gadget lovers can charge up their cell [...]
  35. Gustto Torsa Tote | Relaxed Leather Handbag with Ring Handles and Optional Strap - 2009-10-18 15:56:49-04
    This Gustto Torsa Tote shares a similar design feature with the Bonba Clutch from the same brand. However, the practicality of the Torsa's larger size and multiple carrying options makes it a better choice for an everyday handbag. The feature that the two bags share is the softly twisted strips of leather that flank a center panel [...]
  36. La Regale Antique Tapestry Purse | Beaded Gold Floral Vintage Bag - 2009-10-19 02:05:12-04
    Unless you told me that this was a La Regale handbag, I'd never have known. The brand normally favors minimalist, classic designs, but this vintage purse offers something else! Traditional embroidery works with glitzy colored beads and sequins to create this tapestry design. The floral motif reminds me of the kind of pattern you might spot [...]
  37. Lauren Merkin Croc Tatum Clutch | Patent Leather Embossed Orange Purse - 2009-10-19 04:05:27-04
    Lauren Merkin purses are red carpet favorites, but with the Tatum she's created a clutch that's more rock and roll than Hollywood glamor. The secret is the patent leather finish, which is given an extra dose of attitude with bold mock croc embossing. The finish isn't likely to fool anybody into thinking you've snared a genuine [...]
