  1. Latico Artisan Belting Clutch | Unusual and Bright Interlocking Wristlet - 2009-12-07 16:03:36-05
    Latico add another belted bag to their unusual Artisan range. The exterior interlocking belting that covers this little clutch is in fact the purse's main feature. Combine the fascinating cutout pattern with the bright canary yellow and you have a sixties bag that is great to look at, although the shade will clash with plenty of [...]
  2. Fossil Castille Ring Satchel | Practical Peacock Blue Leather Handbag - 2009-12-08 01:05:29-05
    Fossil combines style and practicality in this Castille ring satchel. The ring handle which gives the purse its name cinches in the leather. It creates the sort of pleated slouch that drawstrings give, but the ring looks much more stylish than any casual tie would. Not that this is a super formal purse, but it's got [...]
  3. Is That Handbag Real or Fake? Fashion Fans Confused by Designer Knock-Offs - 2009-12-08 02:05:05-05
    MIT research has revealed that most people cannot spot whether a handbag is a genuine designer purse or a convincing fake. Instead they rely on the confidence and other social signals of the person carrying the purse. Researcher Renee Richardson Gosline showed fashion fans two dozen photos of designer handbags. Some were genuine, while the others [...]
  4. Francesco Biasia Alice Hobo | Sophisticated Slouchy Beige Leather Handbag - 2009-12-08 03:05:19-05
    Francesco Biasia leaves the 60s far behind with this hobo that's much more sophisticated than the standard hippie fare. The Alice has a little hobo slouch, but you can see she's a girl of refined tastes. The flap top design is timeless, and the beige color a classic neutral. The contrast stitching adds structure and interest. [...]
  5. Diesel Sea Jet The Ranch Shoulder Bag | Large and Slender Zippered Purse - 2009-12-08 08:41:57-05
    The Diesel Sea Jet zippered range gets minty fresh with this square shoulder bag. As with any unusual color, whether you like it or not is largely dependant on personal taste. If muted greens are your cup of tea, and don't remind you of hospital waiting rooms, then this Diesel tote has already taken a step [...]
  6. Holiday Wish List or Gift Idea for Bag Lovers | Treesje Leather Cosmetic Bags - 2009-12-08 11:00:40-05
    My love affair with designer label Treesje's often edgy, sometimes feminine, but always super chic style is no secret. This is one brand that almost never gets it wrong, in my personal opinion. I'm not the only fan, which is why I know that this category of Treesje's Holiday 2009 collection is sure to excite more [...]
  7. Hobo International Katrina Clutch | Patent Leather Handbag with Cutout Handle - 2009-12-08 11:00:48-05
    Although statement handbags are all the rage right now, every woman needs some classic, versatile purses to grab at a moment's notice and pair with practically anything in her closet. This Hobo International Katrina Clutch fills that purpose beautifully. It might not be super trendy or even a standout among other bags, but you just can't [...]
  8. Furla Orione Handbag | Snakeskin Patterned Brown Leather Handbag - 2009-12-09 01:05:23-05
    Unlike so many snakeskin patterned purses out there, the Orione from Furla is a purse that knows the beauty of simplicity. It's a fairly sizable purse, but Furla doesn't want all that space to become cluttered. The coffee-colored leather is embellished with a snakeskin pattern that is more convincing that most. The subtle sheen and irregular [...]
  9. Vegan Chic Sells Animal Friendly Handbags - 2009-12-09 02:05:35-05
    Vegan Chic has added animal friendly handbags to its vegan shopping store, just in time for Christmas. The designs aren't too out of the ordinary, but they're certainly stylish enough. They also come in a range of colors and prints to make accessorizing easy. The Summer Satchel and Vegan Feedbag are cute and casual, while the [...]
  10. Ghibli Leather Satchel Bag | Brown Studded Calf and Reptile Carryall - 2009-12-09 03:05:24-05
    This Ghibli satchel combines contemporary details with classic styling for a fantastic everyday look. The buttery calf leather slouches in all the right places, but it's not completely soft hearted. The reptile patterned handles have tiny silver studs for an extra dose of edge. The same exotic pattern is repeated along the top of the satchel. I [...]
  11. Moschino Cheap and Chic Vertigo Clutch | Slouchy Luxury Rose Decorated Purse - 2009-12-09 08:53:37-05
    Grrr, some things just annoy me. The wildly irritating name of this Moschino Cheap and Chic range is just one thing! Don't get me wrong, the bags are nice, but at $495 this is Chic without the Cheap. If you ignore the name, however, then what we have with the Moschino Vertigo clutch is actually quite [...]
  12. Steve Madden Tribeca Satchel | Trendy Expandable Bag with Studs and Croc Print - 2009-12-09 11:00:53-05
    There's something about the way that this Steve Madden Tribeca Satchel features studs along the bottom half that reminds me ever so slightly of the popular Alexander Wang Coco Duffel. I'm not sure if Steve Madden drew inspiration from the designer tote, but this affordable synthetic handbag has a few of its own features going [...]
  13. Jessica McClintock Metal Fringe Clutch | Delicate Chain Art Deco Evening Bag - 2009-12-09 17:04:16-05
    Jessica McClintock produces an elegant bag with this incredibly simple art deco purse. The sharp angular metal frame of this evening bag works incredibly well as a minimalist structure for the rest of this delicate purse to rely upon. From the solid metal it moves to the thin chain fringe, a bold contrast against the black background [...]
  14. Michael Kors Takes Supermodels Shopping for Resort 2010 Campaign - 2009-12-09 23:21:55-05
    Michael Kors' Asian-inpired Resort 2010 collection might be only just now available to buy, but the designer took his designs to the stores awhile back when shooting the ad campaign. The campaign continues the story line of supermodels Carmen Kass and Noah Mills as jet-setting celebrities about town. After a trip down the velvet ropes of Broadway for fall/winter 2009, [...]
  15. Giani Bernini Twin Star Sign Handbag | Classic Signature Print Leather Trimmed Shoulder Purse - 2009-12-10 01:05:27-05
    Brands like Fendi and Louis Vuitton would have you believe that nothing says classic like a signature print. While I'm dubious when the high-end labels feed us that line, I'm even less convinced when designers like Giani Bernini jump on the bandwagon. With its new age name, I expected something a lot more boho-chic from the [...]
  16. Lanvin Releases Anniversary Tote Bags to Celebrate 120th Year - 2009-12-10 02:05:14-05
    The postage stamps were cute, but here's a Lanvin anniversary collection fashion fans can really sink their teeth into. To commemorate the French fashion house's 120th year in the business, it's released a range of anniversary tote bags. There are three "120 Years" totes, each featuring a vibrant Alber Elbaz illustration and a different theme. Choose [...]
  17. Giuseppe Zanotti IB8046 Clutch | Timeless Mauve Satin Evening Purse - 2009-12-10 03:05:02-05
    He's known for being a fashion innovator, but Giuseppe Zanotti takes a much more traditional approach with this elegant satin clutch. The color choices – this regal mauve and a vibrant turquoise called oil – are delightfully retro. These vibrant shades contrast with the jet black patent frame, a delightful alternative to the traditional metal variety. [...]
  18. SR Squared by Sondra Roberts Snake Tote | Oversized Space-Age Metallic Hold-all - 2009-12-10 08:34:00-05
    Sondra Roberts makes thinks a little bit 22nd Century with this glitzy metallic snakeskin tote. This purse is quite a beast, and in this spangly silver shade that means that you will catch eyes, especially in a room with bright lights to reflect off the fabric. Thankfully the tin-foil effect is avoided by the snakeskin, which adds [...]
  19. Inge Christopher Armadillo Clutch | Embossed Texture Metallic Leather Evening Bag - 2009-12-10 15:16:40-05
    Exotic animal skins or materials that have been embossed to give that appearance are quite the rage right now, but I'm not sure that many women would put this particular animal's hide at the top of their wish list for handbag texture. In fact, I had to do a double take when I saw that this Inge Christopher [...]
  20. Sneak Peek of Lara Stone's Spring/Summer 2010 Ad Campaign for Louis Vuitton - 2009-12-10 15:51:15-05
    The rumors of Lara Stone following in Madonna's footsteps and replacing the international pop star as the new face of Louis Vuitton have proven true. The recently released sneak peek at the spring/summer 2010 shots couldn't be more opposite of the campaigns involving Madonna. As opposed to the singer's porcelain doll poses and fishnet gloves, model [...]
  21. J.Renee Gretel Clutch | Luxury Embroidered Peacock Purse - 2009-12-10 17:36:54-05
    J. Renee have gone all out for this over-the-top fabric purse. The extensive decoration means that, surprisingly, this little clutch could easily work for both day and night. Combine it with something subtle to really draw attention to the bright teal, or clash it with some contrasting patterns if you are feeling really bold! Of course, the [...]
  22. Givenchy Eclipse Satchel | Shiny Black Textured Chain Wrap Handbag - 2009-12-11 01:05:33-05
    Givenchy has been known to push fashion boundaries, but it shows remarkable restraint in creating the Eclipse satchel. The classic good looks start with the lovely black leather finish. It has a slight sheen to the pebbled surface, but it's not as glossy as a true patent might be. It's just enough to add interest, inviting [...]
  23. Stuart Weitzman Partners with Mosaicon SpA to Release Handbag Range - 2009-12-11 02:05:41-05
    Stuart Weitzman is starting 2010 with a brand new accessory line. The fashion brand has joined forces with Mosaicon SpA for the handbag and leather goods collection. While the economic crisis has hit many luxury labels hard, Stuart Weitzman sees the silver lining. Far from seeing the doom and gloom, he says the financial downturn is [...]
  24. Global Elements Recycled Wallet | Eco-Friendly Purse Made From Plastic Bags - 2009-12-11 03:05:06-05
    We've seen recycled handbags made from almost any trash imaginable, from Nahui Ollin's candy wrapper purses to Neide Ambrosio's pop top bags. Now Global Elements has released these cute wallets made from other bags. Plastic grocery bags that is! The wallets are available in a range of color schemes including a rainbow purse, polka dotted wallet, [...]
  25. Armani Exchange A|X Coin Purse | Metallic Graphic Letter Wallet - 2009-12-11 09:19:27-05
    Armani Exhange keep things simple and elegant with this monogrammed coin purse. Forget over embellishment and OTT features - A|X is generally just about keeping things good looking, smart and reasonably formal. If out on a limb designs are more your thing, then there are many wilder brands on the market. For a handy coin purse like [...]
  26. Jalda Croc-Embossed Bean Clutch | Emerald Green Leather Fold-Over Handbag - 2009-12-11 14:00:52-05
    Jalda may offer some fairly unexpected bag materials like stingray and eel skin, but even this brand has its version of the ever-present and oh-so-popular croc-embossed leather handbag. The Jalda Bean Clutch, a favorite style from the label, gets its name from the bean-shaped cutout handle. The hardware takes front seat when the purse is folded [...]
  27. Lindsay Lohan Sells Her Second-Hand Bags, Shoes, and Clothing on Official Family Website - 2009-12-11 15:31:56-05
    If your greatest wish is to dress just like Lindsay Lohan, then you're in luck. Better than trying to hunt down designer looks and paying full price to copy them, you can just buy her wardrobe straight from her own closet. No, seriously, Lindsay is actually selling some of her used items on the family's official [...]
  28. Gucci Guccissima Hobo Handbag | Yellow Designer Signature Leather Purse - 2009-12-12 01:05:05-05
    Gucci shows so many designers how it's done with the Guccissima, a handbag whose signature print doesn't obnoxiously boast the brand. Instead, the interlocking Gs fade subtly into the background of the sunshine yellow leather. You know they're there, but they're not distracting. And while the bold color may not suit everybody, I'll take it any [...]
  29. Hermes Releases Bespoke Luggage and Wardrobe Gift Set for Christmas - 2009-12-12 02:05:16-05
    Hermes has released the ultimate indulgence package for Christmas. The gift set starts with an eight-piece travel collection handmade by a single Hermes craftsman in Paris. The luggage is made from your choice of exotic skins, including crocodile, alligator, ostrich, and lizard. It's then dyed in your favorite color from the 300 shade range. Hermes will [...]
  30. SR Squared Trapunto Knotted Clutch | Elegant Unusual Sondra Roberts Purse - 2009-12-12 14:49:47-05
    Sondra Roberts builds on the previous Trapunto purse design with this elegant knotted beauty. The raised design of this purse builds on the quilted technique employed before in purses from this range. In my opinion, the embossed surface works well as a contrast against the smooth tan knot, especially as the colours contrast beautifully too. Mustard yellow may [...]
  31. Matt & Nat Braun Weekend Bag | Coated Canvas and Manmade Leather Travel Tote - 2009-12-12 16:05:41-05
    It's somewhat different to come across a Matt & Nat handbag that isn't made entirely from vegan-friendly leather or faux suede, which makes this Braun weekend bag from the brand a bit of an anomaly. Despite its slight deviation from the label's typically overt eco-friendly status, this coated canvas travel tote is perfectly in line with [...]
  32. Moschino Cheap and Chic Primavera Clutch | Delicate Floral Bow Purse - 2009-12-12 16:11:42-05
    The time is here to start getting your hopes up and preparing for the next fashion season - and there aren't any bags more springlike than this Primavera purse. Quite frankly, I love this purse. I love the bold vibrant colours and cute pastel bow. I also adore the slouchy casual shape, perfect for sunny spring weddings, [...]
  33. First Look at Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2010 Ad Campaign with Jamie Bochert - 2009-12-12 22:56:52-05
    After a tripped-out fall/winter campaign earlier this year, Marc Jacobs has taken his namesake label to an equally offbeat yet somewhat surreal place for the upcoming spring/summer season. American model-sometimes-singer Jamie Bochert stars in this first look from the campaign photographed by Marc Jacobs favored photographer Juergen Teller. Her unique look seems to fit beautifully with the often-quirky brand. While at first glance the shot looks [...]
  34. Guess Casanova Tulip Tote | Large Brown Synthetic Handbag - 2009-12-13 01:05:05-05
    Guess has never been my favorite fashion label, but I'm still shocked it came up with something this terrible. I suppose Guess might have been hoping for a retro color-blocked effect, but it's missed the mark here. Instead the white and black accents simply look mismatched against the brown synthetic. From the pleats to the studded [...]
  35. Hype Means Nothing Does Celebrity Photo Travel Bags - 2009-12-13 02:05:12-05
    French fashion label Hype Means Nothing has expanded its range to include some contemporary accessories. The brand's travel bags and Macbook cases are just as celebrity obsessed as you might expect. Each features hundreds of images of stars like Barack Obama, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, and Marilyn Monroe cheekily wearing finger glasses. The number of images [...]
  36. Tignanello Pleated Pockets Top Zip | Medium Leather Shoulder Bag - 2009-12-13 14:27:48-05
    Although I rarely expect to see something dramatic and eyecatching from typically classic brand Tignanello, this Pleated Pockets Top Zip shoulder bag is a tad underwhelming when compared to some of their other styles, in my opinion. However, there's always a place in a woman's wardrobe for a versatile brown handbag with a traditional silhouette. While this particular [...]
  37. Jalda Luxe Christa Evening Bag | Croc-Embossed Metallic Mirrored Clutch - 2009-12-13 16:42:08-05
    Jalda go all elegant and surreal with this rather fabulous crocodile print clutch. This evening bag uses over-sized croc-embossed print to its best advantage by creating this mirrored effect, looking like the invisible Andreia Chaves shoes that fashion bloggers all over the globe are raving about. The metallic leather could be shinier, but this muted version [...]
  38. Moschino Cheap And Chic Plisse Tote | Pleated Knotted Hold-all - 2009-12-13 17:43:35-05
    Moschino steer clear of bright colours and opt for eternally fashionable black with their Plisse purse. Timeless elegance is the name of the game for this tote, clad in gorgeous pleated black leather. This is fashionable enough to go with almost anything, yet the leather and knotted handles make it edgy enough to look stylish for [...]
  39. Serena Williams Signature Statement Giveaway from V-Style | Enter to Win Embossed Python Tote - 2009-12-13 20:14:09-05
    Tennis star Serena Williams has been involved in fashion design a few years now. In addition to her Aneres line, she also teamed up with the Home Shopping Network (HSN) earlier this year to create a new collection called Signature Statement. The budget-friendly line, which retails under $100, is a mix of handbags, jewelry, and other [...]
  40. Gustto Baca Shoulder Bag | Bright Turquoise Leather Handbag with Oversized Hardware - 2009-12-14 01:05:34-05
    Gustto's Baca shoulder bag combines classic styling and functional features, but don't accuse it of being boring. The vibrant color options ensure this bag is no wallflower. This bold turquoise shade reminds me of sparkling Caribbean waters, while the lilac option is a little more reserved. Both hues are complemented by oversized metal hardware. The large [...]
  41. Chanel Three-Book Collection Makes Special Christmas Gift For Fashion Fans - 2009-12-14 02:05:01-05
    Chanel's special edition three-book collection is the ultimate Christmas gift for the fashion fan who has everything. This coffee table set is luxury with a capital L. The diamond quilted leather slipcover is fashioned after Chanel's iconic handbags, complete with the original metal logo! Each book focuses on a different aspect of the Chanel empire: fashion, [...]
  42. Halston Foxy Pochette | Black Suede Envelope Style Clutch - 2009-12-14 03:05:50-05
    Halston keep it simple with the Foxy Pochette. It's stylish to be sure, but foxy? I'm not sure this purse has enough sex appeal to earn its saucy moniker. In my opinion, this pochette is far too reserved to be truly foxy. After all, sophisticated black will never have as much fun as lusty red or [...]
  43. Franchi Unique Velvet Rose Clutch | Sophisticated Twisted Luxury Purse - 2009-12-14 08:21:06-05
    I am afraid it is unavoidable - Christmas is here and as such the time has come to lust over beautiful velvet purses all over again. My pick of the month is this subtle beauty, the Unique, from relatively unknown designer, Franchi. With a soft and strokable twist on the old rose bud purses, this really is perfect [...]
