Hi mary,

Check out the latest handbag fashion news and review at BagBunch.com:
  1. Rafe Blake Hobo | Metallic Snake Embossed Leather Handbag - 2009-11-30 15:07:26-05
    When real snakeskin is beyond the reach of your budget, there's always embossed leather to fill the void. Thanks to designer brands like Rafe, you can enjoy the snake print along with the quality of real leather and expert craftsmanship. That's where handbags like this chic Rafe Blake hobo come in. Consistent with the label's chic [...]
  2. Enter the Hermès Birkin Bag Giveaway from Portero, Fab Sugar, and Purse Blog - 2009-11-30 19:32:00-05
    Just about any handbag giveaway is worth getting excited about, in my opinion, but the possibility of winning an Hermès Birkin bag is enough to make some women start hyperventilating. Well, ladies, get the oxygen ready because the chance of owning your very own Birkin has arrived. In what they're calling their "biggest-ever handbag giveaway," Portero.com has teamed [...]
  3. Dooney & Bourke Luna Bag | Simple Expandable Calf Leather Hobo Purse - 2009-12-01 01:05:14-05
    It looks like such a simple bag, but the Dooney & Bourke Luna packs quite a punch. The first knock-out blow comes with the color range. While in previous years Dooney & Bourke's made the Luna in conservative white and black, the recent crop of colors is a lot more daring. Consider this bright green, hot [...]
  4. Zac Posen Designs for Target Go International Series - 2009-12-01 02:05:39-05
    Zac Posen is the latest designer to step up for Target's Go International series. The series, which focuses on young fashion up-and-comers, has featured collections from Thakoon, Erin Fetherston, Jovovich-Hawk, and Rogan in the past. This isn't Zac Posen's first association with Target. In fall 2008 he designed red-carpet ready gowns, sexy dresses, and tailored pants [...]
  5. Ed Hardy Queena Satchel | Edgy Purple and Skulls Handbag - 2009-12-01 03:05:44-05
    It might scream far too loudly for many bagistas, but there's definitely no ignoring the Queena satchel from Ed Hardy. Ed Hardy is a label that doesn't believe in subtlety. While most high-end designers prefer to choose just one accent, on the Queena we see logo-quilted cotton canvas, edgy skull graphics, patent-like trim and a smattering [...]
  6. Treesje Ginger Ruffles Cosmetics Case | Cute and Feminine Flirty Purse - 2009-12-01 13:22:18-05
    Every girl needs a cosmetics bag, especially for holding your makeup on weekend trips away. This flirty little case from designer Treesje adds a little bit of fun to a bag generally reserved for function. Makeup cases aren't about multiple pockets or useful comfortable handles. Instead, they are mainly about having a single space big enough [...]
  7. Sondra Roberts New York Elegant Tote | Origami-style Folded Hold-all - 2009-12-01 14:14:33-05
    Sondra Roberts keeps it simple and classic in white with this elegant tote. That white leather works to let the shape of this hold-all speak for itself. The clever folded slouchy structure of this purse needs little embellishment, and makes a large bag have a surprisingly minimalist look. As for hitting trend buttons, this neatly ticks the [...]
  8. Big Buddha Hillary Satchel | Large Yellow Synthetic Handbag with Oversized Studs - 2009-12-01 16:17:20-05
    If Big Buddha was attempting to go simplistic with this Hillary Satchel, I'd say that they hit the mark. Although there are some nice qualities to the handbag's design, the overall look is understated and sort of classic. That doesn't mean that the details on the Hillary are small and go completely unnoticed, however. Instead of [...]
  9. L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers Design Bags for Apple | Computer Sleeves and Gadget Pouches Available Online - 2009-12-01 23:25:03-05
    Mulberry isn't the only designer brand to release a collection of stylish bags for technology-loving fashionistas. Gwen Stefani and her bevy of quirky brands, L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers, have expanded their lines as well to include a new collection specifically for Apple products. The recently released line, created with the help of Schifter + Partners, includes multiple gadget-holding [...]
  10. Eenamaria All-Night Clubber | Inexpensive Bold Blue Retro Flap Bag - 2009-12-02 01:05:31-05
    Eenamaria delivers another fun retro purse with this All-Night Clubber. But does it live up to its promise? This purse has such a fun 1960s vibe. The bright blue synthetic has a sexy patent sheen, which complements the gleaming square buckle. The chunky flap design and short curved handle help to complete the undeniably retro look. But [...]
  11. Woolen Finger Puppet Handbag Designers | Quirky Christmas Gift Idea for Purse Lovers - 2009-12-02 02:05:03-05
    Showing finger puppets are more than child's play, Finger Puppets has released some cute limited edition collections just in time for Christmas. The woolen puppets, inspired by the illustrations of Jessica Pemberton, depict some of the world's most revered names in fashion. The tiny dolls come packaged in special boxes dedicated to the world's fashion capitals. [...]
  12. Elaine Turner Ashton Short Shoulder Bag | Raspberry Leather Purse with Chunky Ring Detail - 2009-12-02 03:05:12-05
    With its raspberry jewel tone and contemporary styling, the Ashton shoulder bag is a versatile choice for this season. Elaine Turner strikes the delicate balance between classic and modern here. A little pleating near the base gives the bucket shape a subtle slouch, but it's still fairly traditional. The details are what really makes this purse [...]
  13. Jessica Simpson Runway Bow Clutch | Layered Woven Synthetic Purse - 2009-12-02 09:31:07-05
    This acutely mustard Jessica Simpson clutch may actually manage to give a whole new vibe to that old decorative favorite, the bow. Escaping the depressingly cute associations of a big floppy bow is a difficult feat in this eighties loving day and age, but thankfully Jessica Simpson has found a way to buck the trend. By combining [...]
  14. Melie Bianco Multi-Color Fringe Clutch | Synthetic Bag with Optional Chain Strap - 2009-12-02 14:39:21-05
    A little fringe goes a long way, according to my personal fashion taste, but evidently Melie Bianco thinks otherwise. I'm not sure this Multi-Color Fringe Clutch has space for any more of the detail on it. Though the fringe might be a little overkill with this handbag, Melie Bianco isn't the first brand to go overboard [...]
  15. Luxist Defines What a Woman's Handbag Choice Says about Her - 2009-12-02 17:05:36-05
    It's not the first time someone has attempted to define women by the type of handbag they carry, and I'd be willing to bet it's nowhere close to being the last. However, this new version of "What Your Handbag Says about You" from Luxist.com is a little more about personality than fashion taste. From shoulder bags to [...]
  16. Paul Frank The Julius Satchel | Funky and Affordable Cartoon Purse - 2009-12-02 17:08:18-05
    This is the perfect lighthearted satchel for girls who don't want to shell out lots on a bag to have fun with. At only $21, this isn't made out of the best materials on the market. But if you need a purse that will hold your belongings whilst keeping you gently entertained, a cheap and cheerful [...]
  17. Elie Tahari Emma Tote | Fun Bright Yellow Leather Pleated Purse - 2009-12-03 01:05:23-05
    Few things will brighten up a gloomy winter day as easily as Elie Tahari's Emma tote. In vibrant sunshine yellow, it's the perfect anecdote to gray weather. At first glance all you see is the color, but on closer examination we begin to appreciate the finer details. The buttery-soft leather falls in billowing balloonesque pleats. These [...]
  18. Authentic Louis Vuitton Purse Donated to Cancer Charity Store - 2009-12-03 02:05:48-05
    A British Cancer Research shop is hoping to raise more than a thousand pounds, after an anonymous donor dropped off a genuine Louis Vuitton handbag. The generous soul didn't leave her name with the Bedford High Street store staff, but she did mention there may be something valuable inside her sack of donations. That's putting it [...]
  19. Elliott Lucca Palermo Tote | Authentic Patent Leather Poppy Red Handbag - 2009-12-03 03:05:04-05
    Most often these days patent leather is flashy and flamboyant, designed to draw the eye and daring us to look away. But the Palermo tote from Elliott Lucca has a much more sophisticated air. In fact, it's the handbag equivalent of a pair of Mary Janes! The high-gloss surface is emphasized by a tightly woven panel. [...]
  20. Tignanellos Touchables Belting Cross-Body | Elegant Casual Versatile Day-Bag - 2009-12-03 07:50:52-05
    Tignanello add yet another versatile everyday bag to their functional Touchables range. As with all purses in this range, the belt is the focal point that attracts users attention. As well as adding an element of extra functionality to the purse by making the size and tension adaptable, buckles are always a fashionable and attractive addition. [...]
  21. Big Buddha Eclipse Clutch | Metallic Faux Snakeskin Handbag - 2009-12-03 14:39:13-05
    Big Buddha hits both current trends and a pleasing price point with this Eclipse handbag, giving truly budget-conscious gals something chic, yet also extremely affordable. Not everyone can afford the kind of luxurious craftsmanship that designer labels are able to charge and arm and a leg for. Therefore, it's nice to see a handbag that's stylish, a [...]
  22. Proenza Schouler Launches E-Commerce on Website | Exclusive Bags and Keychains Available - 2009-12-03 15:10:19-05
    Alexander Wang isn't the only hip, young designer label to be launching an e-commerce site these days. Although Proenza Schouler is getting in on the game a little later than Wang, who opened his own online shopping website section earlier this fall, I'm guessing that this new site will be equally popular. "We do most of [...]
  23. Emilio Pucci Frame Bag | Chic Silver Silk Clutch Purse with Bangle - 2009-12-04 01:05:55-05
    This is a much more sophisticated offering than most Emilio Pucci purses. The plexi-plastic bangle with its colorful retro design is the only hint of the designer's typically flamboyant style. Emilio Pucci lovers will adore this vibrant bangle, but it may take a little more to convince the rest of us. While the shades aren't as [...]
  24. Lanvin Celebrates 120th Anniversary with Commemorative Postage Stamps - 2009-12-04 02:05:57-05
    French luxury handbag brand Lanvin is celebrating its 120th anniversary with the release of two commemorative postage stamps. The limited edition stamps, which will be sold through French Post outlets, are designed by the label's artistic director, Alber Elbaz. You might remember his colorful illustrations from the Gourmet 22 Faubourg tote bag released earlier this year. [...]
  25. Etienne Aigner Ridgedale Shoulder Bag | Classic Saddle Leather Top Zip Purse - 2009-12-04 03:05:50-05
    Etienne Aigner has carved a reputation as the go-to brand for sensible and sophisticated handbags. They probably won't turn any heads, but you'll find yourself pulling them out of your closet season after season. The Ridgedale is another example of the dependable handbags we expect from the brand. The traditional boxy shape is given a little [...]
  26. Sondra Roberts Santorini Fringe Tote | Tie-Dye Hippy Hobo - 2009-12-04 10:41:49-05
    Tie-Dye is, without fail, a matter of personal taste. Those who dislike it tend to find that tie-dye is a bit too obvious for them to wear - and this Sondra Roberts hobo is right up their with the most obvious of them all. This purse is a fabulous combination of all things hippie. The blue and white [...]
  27. Whiting & Davis Plaid Mesh Flap Clutch | Patterned Brass Mesh Handbag - 2009-12-04 11:00:00-05
    This is exactly the kind of style I'm used to seeing from Whiting & Davis. Despite the brand's recent divergence from their signature vintage-like look into some slightly more contemporary designs, the Plaid Mesh Flap Clutch brings things back to the somewhat expected. That doesn't mean that this handbag is boring or any less worth considering, though. I, [...]
  28. Devi Kroell Celebrates Yet Another Store Grand Opening | Las Vegas Forum Shops Boutique Now Open - 2009-12-04 11:00:25-05
    Devi Kroell's fashion career has been on a roll for a few years now and doesn't appear to have lost any momentum throughout a rather difficult economic period of time in the industry. After just recently celebrating the grand opening of her chic new flagship boutique on Madison Avenue in New York City, this designer is at [...]
  29. Felix Rey Manon Bag | Slouchy Black Goat Leather Tote - 2009-12-05 01:05:59-05
    Is this really a Felix Rey bag? It's hard to believe that the same designer who created beachworthy rattan totes and spangly metal mesh bags is responsible for this urban chic leather purse. The Manon is crafted from luxurious black goatskin. This incredibly soft leather slouches in all the right places for the perfect relaxed, yet [...]
  30. Pattern People Pay Tribute to Michael Jackson and Prince with Canvas Totes - 2009-12-05 02:05:07-05
    I loved Pattern People's funky Karl Lagerfield and Marc Jacobs bags released earlier this year, so I'm thrilled to see the brand release a couple of new Tribute Totes. This time the label has set its sights on the music biz. If you haven't yet overdosed on Michael Jackson memorabilia, you'll love the MJ bag. It [...]
  31. Lucky Magazine Gives Away Tons of Accessories This Month | Enter to Win Bags, Shoes, Jewelry, & More - 2009-12-05 11:00:01-05
    It seems to me like Lucky magazine is always giving away something cute and stylish, but this holiday they seem to have a more than average amount of prizes to hand out. Their current accessories giveaway is chock full of desirable goodies. There's a little bit of everything in every category, too. You'll find necklaces, rings, [...]
  32. D&G Dolce & Gabbana Maika Pouchette | Ribbed Fabric Evening Bag with Bow-Covered Flap - 2009-12-05 11:00:18-05
    Dolce & Gabbana is known for stepping outside the box a bit when it comes to fashion, and that's especially true for the designer label's trendy secondary line D&G. This Maika Pouchette from D&G fits right in with other handbags with unexpected details from the brand. Just as the Satin Beaded Clutch surprises with its complete beaded flap [...]
  33. Giuseppe Zanotti Striped Leather Clutch | Glossy Metallic Designer Purse - 2009-12-05 15:32:13-05
    You would never guess at first glance that this glossy satin-like clutch from Giuseppe Zanotti is actually made out of the softest of leathers! Of course, Giuseppe Zanotti purses are at the very high end of handbag design, and as such can afford to use the very best materials. Clocking in at a mighty $1300, using [...]
  34. Carlos Falchi Ostrich Box Clutch | Subtly Textured Fold-Over Purse - 2009-12-05 17:45:35-05
    We all know how much Carlos Falchi loves fashion's latest leather, ostrich skin, so it is no surprise that their box clutch is clad is that very same substance. Ostrich skin and luxury purses go together like birds of a feather (sorry I couldn't resist!), and in this clutch it is really left to speak for [...]
  35. Fendi Forever Boston Bag | Pastel Palazzo Print Signature Purse - 2009-12-06 01:05:41-05
    Sometimes I feel like Fendi isn't trying anymore. Looking at the brand's Forever Boston bag is one of those times. It seems the label thinks it can deliver a stock standard Boston bag, slap its signature print on it, and charge like a wounded bull. And I guess since there's just one left on Amazon, perhaps [...]
  36. Affordable Authentic Vintage Bags Online | Great Christmas Idea For Fashionable Friends - 2009-12-06 02:05:09-05
    While high-end designers try to charge exorbitant prices for vintage-inspired purses, it's refreshing to find a site like vintagebag.com. This online retailer sells genuine vintage purses from the classic ages of fashions. You'll find beloved brands like Sterling USA and Markay all represented here. And for once, big names don't come with big price tags. There's [...]
  37. Win a Lizard and Alligator Kara Ross Clutch from Bag Snob - 2009-12-06 11:00:27-05
    Kara Ross' handbag descriptions read like an exhaustive list of exotic skin leathers. Alligator, python, anaconda, and ostrich have all graced the exteriors of this designer's collections, and now you have an opportunity to win one in lizard and alligator. The folks over at Bag Snob have teamed up with Kara Ross to give away one ultra chic [...]
  38. Betsey Johnson Hottie Spotty Large Tote | Velvet Animal Print Designer Handbag - 2009-12-06 11:00:57-05
    I'm not sure that velvet and animal-print are the best pairing for a handbag. However, if anyone can pull it off, it's going to be eccentric and retro-loving Betsey Johnson. Not one to ever shy away from bold prints and quirky details, Betsey Johnson makes quite a statement with this amusingly named Hottie Spotty tote. Although that [...]
  39. Badgley Mischka Angela Satchel | Traditional Patent Graphic Purse - 2009-12-06 13:26:48-05
    This is a gorgeous traditional bag from respected luxury designer Badgley Mischka. Good quality patent leather always looks good, and the effect is emphasised here by the contrasting white trim. That white trim works to create that graphic sixties style pattern, with a stylised over-sized button clasp and a funky art deco shape. Looks wise, this is a [...]
  40. Kate Spade Tutti Frutti Maryanne Tote | Quilted Block Color Sixties Purse - 2009-12-06 18:51:58-05
    Kate Spade still manages to channel bright sixties vibes in a simple single colored bag. The quilting is the first step towards 60's freedom and mod style. Done wrong it could look more "posh riding school" than anything fun and modern, but thankfully when combined with the bright orange shade it really really works. In fact, this [...]
  41. Foley + Corinna Delancey Day Bag | Rock Chic Black Leather Slouchy Convertible Handbag - 2009-12-07 01:05:07-05
    With a healthy dose of attitude comes the Delancey, a day bag which delivers rock star chic that the average girl can pull off. What I like most about this purse is that Foley + Corinna keeps it simple. While many rock styled purses overdose on studs and spikes, this one reins it in. Black leather [...]
  42. JulieApple Eco-Friendly Handbags Launch with Online Party - 2009-12-07 02:05:24-05
    Former LeSportsac design whiz Julianne Applegate is now going it alone with the launch of her new eco-friendly handbag line. Julianne recently launched the sustainable bags this week with a fun party in collaboration with Knox ivi. While 50 fans attended the launch, many more around the world stayed in touch with the event through social [...]
  43. Fontanelli Leather Twist Lock Bag | Sophisticated Black Woven Doctor Style Purse - 2009-12-07 03:05:27-05
    Fontanelli brings a little intrigue to basic black with its Leather Twist Lock Bag. The traditional doctor style design is given an elegant lift here. The central woven panel is complemented by modern pleats, which meet together in a V at the base. The combination of textures could easily overwhelm on a different purse, but the [...]
  44. Kenneth Cole Reaction Business Luggage | Functional Luxury Leather Laptop Bag - 2009-12-07 08:33:33-05
    Before you say it, don't worry - I know. This functional luggage laptop case from Kenneth Cole is kind of boring. But, if you look a little deeper, you will soon realise just how practical it actually is. Solid brown may be dull, but think of it this way - a dark shade like this will coordinate with [...]
  45. Alligator Farmers and Other Designer Labels Suffer while Hermes Continues to Sell Exotic Handbags - 2009-12-07 11:00:18-05
    When news broke earlier this year that Hermes had begun breeding their own alligators at a reptile farm in Australia, one could only assume that the demand for the exotic skin had risen to a high point. Such has not been the case for everyone, though. In fact, it seems that Hermes is the only one to see an increase in sales for [...]
  46. Isaac Mizrahi Dayglo Duffel Bag with Duster | Medium Travel Tote with Neon Leather - 2009-12-07 11:00:40-05
    This is one travel tote that you definitely won't get mixed up with someone else's bag at the airport. In fact, it would be hard for anyone to miss it. In true extravagant Isaac Mizrahi form, the kind he was famous for before his budget-friendly Target line, this Medium Dayglo Duffel retails for the high price tag [...]
