New at BagBunch: Diane von Fursternberg Hayworth Denim-Effect Leather Clutch | Cute And Casual Denim Printed Leather ...

Hi mary,

Check out the latest handbag fashion news and review at BagBunch.com:
  1. Diane von Fursternberg Hayworth Denim-Effect Leather Clutch | Cute And Casual Denim Printed Leather Clutch - 2010-03-08 10:00:55-05
    Diane von Furstenberg makes the kind of classic designs that become iconic. Not only that, but they stay iconic for decades. This Hayworth clutch is right in line with her classic modern aesthetic. There is an immense amount of detail in this bag, but it still looks pared down and minimal, because none of the details [...]
  2. See by Chloe Two Can Oversized Cotton Tote | Quirky Electric Blue Carryall With Whimsical Details - 2010-03-08 15:11:14-05
    See by Chloe is basically the French answer to Marc by Marc Jacobs. They are both the young, hip diffusion lines of major fashion houses, but that's not where the similarities end. They both run the gamut from edgy rocker chic to preppy cutesy retro chic. This bag falls into the latter category. The colors on [...]
  3. Sondra Roberts Beach Day Clutch | SR Squared Button Purse - 2010-03-08 17:35:03-05
    Aw, don't you just love the cute round buttons on this Sondra Roberts clutch? I have always been a big fan of adorable buttons, so do forgive me if I seem a little over-enthusiastic about what is essentially one of the simplest forms of handbag decoration. However, I think the simple lines work really well to [...]
  4. Jimmy Choo Lolha Snakeskin And Leather Bag | Uptown White Leather And Snakeskin Handbag With Edgy Bohemian Details - 2010-03-08 18:00:18-05
    I feel like I need to be honest here. Jimmy Choo has never been one of my favorite lines. He makes super sexy high quality accessories for uptown sophisticates, but I'm just not that kind of girl. I'm a little more downtown, and a whole lot edgier. The Lolha seems to be aiming for somewhere in [...]
  5. Two's Company Seychelles Tote Bag | Black Woven Corn Husk Handbag - 2010-03-08 22:49:15-05
    Woven straw is a tricky medium. Use it well and you'll create a quirky and cool handbag at a budget price. But do it wrong and the purse will simply look cheap and nasty. That's the problem with the Seychelles tote from Two's Company. The brand doesn't typically work with woven fibers, and it shows. While [...]
  6. Mary Frances Rock Out Shoulder Bag | Mini Beaded Convertible Chiffon Ruffle Purse - 2010-03-09 01:05:38-05
    The Rock Out may seem like an unlikely name for this Mary Frances bag. After all, there's not a hint of leather or silver studs to be seen! Instead, Mary Frances seems to take inspiration from the bohemian vibe of Woodstock. I can imagine free-spirited musicians like Janis Joplin or Joan Baez slinging this small shoulder [...]
  7. eBay Goes Green with New Environmentally Friendly Shopping Hub - 2010-03-09 02:05:32-05
    eBay is encouraging us to go green, not by buying bags made of recycled materials or organic fabrics but by opting for pre-loved handbags. "Most people think you have to make a product in a certain way with a certain set of ingredients for it to be green," said Amy Skoczlas Cole, director of eBay's green [...]
  8. Echo Terry Plastic Tote | Small Handheld Summer Handbag - 2010-03-09 03:05:20-05
    We were critical of Echo when it used terry cloth as the feature fabric on its slouchy tote recently. We derided the material for being cheap and nasty, commenting that its only redeeming quality is its ability to absorb water. So how strange that when paired with an equally cheap material – in this case hard [...]
  9. Lily Allen's Out, Vanessa Paradis In for Chanel Spring 2010 Advertising - 2010-03-09 04:05:02-05
    Karl Lagerfield has dumped British poppette Lily Allen for French singer and Johnny Depp's longtime squeeze, Vanessa Paradis. Vanessa is already starring in Chanel's next Rouge Coco lip color campaign, and now she'll spruik Coco Cocoon bags. It's a return to form for Ms Paradis, who was the face of Coco fragrance in 1991. She also [...]
  10. M. Andonia Yoga Bag | Functional Spotted Fitness Shoulder Handbag - 2010-03-09 05:05:15-05
    M. Andonia leaves behind the artsy prints its famous for to create this simple and sophisticated yoga bag. Not that M. Andonia forgets style altogether. But the spotted print in classic black or silver is more timeless than the watercolor designs might be. The look won't clash with your exercise garb, or go out of style. Unlike [...]
  11. Dolce & Gabbana Lily Calfskin Satchel | Western Cutout Luxury Tote - 2010-03-09 07:49:46-05
    Well, this is slightly more ostentatious than most of the highly expensive handbags in the Dolce & Gabbana range. Of course, ostentatious doesn't necessarily mean anything bad. In fact, if you want a designer bag that costs over $1600 to get noticed, then having one like the Lily bag is a good idea indeed. The high [...]
  12. See by Chloe Ring Around Leather Bag | Rocker Chic Black Leather Hobo With Zipper Details - 2010-03-09 19:09:34-05
    Sometimes a bag is so perfectly in tune with your personal taste that you can't help but think it was made just for you. The Ring Around Bag might just be that bag for me, so excuse me if I gush and drool a little. First, it's black and leather, which are my two first requirements [...]
  13. Abas Rose Envelope Clutch | Large Embossed Crocodile Leather Purse - 2010-03-10 01:05:34-05
    If you've drooled over Abas' clutches like the Cate and Maggie but longed for something larger meet this sweet smelling Rose. The Rose features the same convincing embossed leather we've seen on so many Abas purses. It might be a little predictable, but when a brand continues to produce quality exotic impersonators like this I'm not [...]
  14. Bottega Veneta Creates Limited Edition Moscow Clutch For Russian Boutique - 2010-03-10 02:05:20-05
    Bottega Veneta has created a Russian inspired limited edition clutch to be sold at its Tretjakovskiy Proezd store in Moscow. The appropriately named Moscow clutch will be made from vivid green intrecciato Ayers snakeskin. The lush design is finished off with an antique gold-finished brass turnlock closure inlaid with malachite to match the snake. The woven [...]
  15. Portero Sells Rare Vintage Whale Skin Hermes Kelly for More Than $7000 - 2010-03-10 04:05:11-05
    Hermes bags are arguably the most famous handbags in the world, with long waiting lists and hefty price tags. While any Hermes accessories are exclusive, this rare vintage Kelly available on Portero takes that elite nature to a new level. This ivory beauty is actually crafted from 100% whale skin. That won't impress animal activists, but [...]
  16. Soapbox The 5th Avenue Classic Case | Practical Pretty Cosmetics Bag - 2010-03-10 04:05:59-05
    Soapbox's signature accessory is the 5th Avenue Classic Case, a New York inspired makeup bag that combines fun and functionality. The classic case name comes from the traditional trapezium shape. This simple design is jazzed up with colorful patterns. There's a great range of prints to choose from, including the Chinese inspired Black Asian, the classic [...]
  17. Badgley Mischka Beth Hobo | Classic Crescent Shaped Slouchy Bag - 2010-03-10 05:05:15-05
    Few hobos play it as straight as Badgley Mischka's Beth. And that's precisely why on the modern fashion landscape, it's a standout. Lately I've been feeling like designers are doing too much with hobos. They're playing around with the shape and the structure, adding embellishments of every kind. Here Badgley Mischka gets back to basics and [...]
  18. Prezzo Square Ball Mesh Clutch | Chequered Metal Purse - 2010-03-10 07:39:28-05
    Prezzo release yet another impressively affordable evening bag. OK, so the metal mesh on this purse isn't perhaps in the classiest of shades of gold - but the clutch does just cost $39. For such a relatively small amount of money, therefore, the rest of the looks are actually quite luxe. The chequered effect in particular [...]
  19. Dolce & Gabbana Studded Wallet | Luxury and Expensive Goatskin Purse - 2010-03-10 17:55:25-05
    This is a studded and edgy beauty from talented fashion house D&G. Studded and gorgeous this may well be, but even soft goatskin leather and row upon row of rock chick metal can't make me believe that it is ever EVER alright to spend $695 on a wallet. But, then again, I don't have $695 to [...]
  20. Tory Burch Telvin Mini Bag | Ultra Chic And Versatile Black Leather Bag With Gold Chain Details - 2010-03-10 20:33:08-05
    Tory Burch is a designer that I associate with Palm Beach and uppercrust socialites. There's nothing wrong with either of those things, but I'm more of a Lower East Side dive bar dweller, so the Burch style and mine don't usually intersect. But her latest handbags have been fashion forward in a way that is [...]
  21. Giuseppe Zanotti Che-Embellished Suede Clutch | Sparkly And Trendy Crystal Embellished Clutch - 2010-03-10 21:30:53-05
    I am going to have to get a little brutally honest here, so please bear with me. GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI, ARE YOU SERIOUS? This whole Che Guevara motif is so five years ago. Almost ten. I am not saying there's anything wrong with Che, I admire him as a man and as a revolutionary, but as [...]
  22. Bebe Snake Clutch | Colorful Python Print Evening Purse - 2010-03-11 01:05:08-05
    Dare to walk on the wild side with this sexy snake clutch from Bebe. Fashion snobs may turn their nose up at the blue and pink hues of this python printed purse, but I'm a little more forgiving. So many faux snakeskin clutches attempt to replicate the real thing and fail dismally. I have to applaud [...]
  23. Twiggy Releases Twiggy London Fashion Collection Through HSN - 2010-03-11 02:05:37-05
    Legendary British supermodel Twiggy is preparing to launch a new apparel and accessories line next month on HSN. The collection, called Twiggy London, will feature blouses, jackets, and handbags with a British aesthetic. "I am excited to partner exclusively with HSN and draw on the network's expertise in building brands," the model said in a statement. "This [...]
  24. Bodhi Pebble Cross-Body Bag | Retro Turnlock Closure Leather Handbag - 2010-03-11 03:05:45-05
    Bodhi gets retro with this striking Pebble Cross-Body Bag. The style is classic, with its fold-over flap and grainy pebble leather finish. But there are a few quirks which make this purse unmistakably Bodhi. The real feature is the turnlock closure, a vintage accent gone large. I've often criticized designers who've opted for oversized turnlocks over [...]
  25. Luxury Items Make Us Selfish Says New Research - 2010-03-11 04:05:27-05
    We all feel good when we splurge on a designer handbag, but is your purchase doing you more harm than good? Research suggests that people surrounded by luxury become more self-absorbed and less empathetic towards others. Participants in the study were asked to make decisions designed to pit self-interests against those affecting society. The respondents who [...]
  26. Bourne Tara Clutch | Celtic Inspired Rhinestone Satin Box Purse - 2010-03-11 05:05:36-05
    With the Tara clutch Bourne serves up classic glamour with a dose of bling. The traditional box shaped purse is embellished with a Celtic inspired knot design. This pattern is further accented with a strip of glittering rhinestones. The success of these gems really depends on the shade you choose, and your personal preference. On the [...]
  27. Nine West Neves Clutch | Flower Layered Over-sized Purse - 2010-03-11 08:23:43-05
    Most girls who like girlie things have a bit of a penchant for specific features. For polka-dots, all too often, and bows. Another area they tend to love are classy and stylish flowers. This is why I think the Nine West Neves purse will go down a treat in these kind of circles. It isn't over-powering, [...]
  28. Marc Jacobs New York Rocker Bag | Sexy and Sassy Sequined Evening Bag With Chain Strap - 2010-03-11 15:39:59-05
    Marc Jacobs is the hero of the downtown fashionista. There's not a girl below 14th Street that doesn't worship him. And it's no wonder, because his designs are elegant and chic, but still totally hip. Point in case is this fabulous New Yorker Rocker Bag. I love how aptly named this bag is. I can just [...]
  29. B. Makowsky Las Vegas Hobo | Thick Folded Tasseled Bag - 2010-03-11 17:37:46-05
    This spacious Las Vegas hobo brings a modern twist to the traditional western style handbag. Although the studs and tan leather could be construed as quite typical of a cowboy styled handbag, but I actually think B. Makowsky has made this into something quite different. The tassels are folded and thus more curved than normal, and the studs [...]
  30. Marc by Marc Jacobs Nylon Printed Heart Tote | Adorable Fold Up Patchwork Tote - 2010-03-11 18:00:33-05
    The Marc by Marc Jacobs line has a practical side that makes the slightly overpriced price tags seem reasonable. It just never goes out of style, but somehow always looks really current. This Heart Tote has additional practical qualities that make it appealing, too. It's a full-size tote that folds and zips up into a [...]
  31. Donald J Pliner Ivah Shopper | Sophisticated Croc Embossed Leather Tassled Bag - 2010-03-12 01:05:16-05
    The elegant styling of this Ivah shopper from Donald J Pliner has really turned my head. The look is classic, with soft, sexy curves and clean lines. The colors too are traditional, dark and versatile options like black and expresso brown. Some might feel that's not exciting enough, but I think the hues works well with [...]
  32. Madonna Readies Material Girl Junior Line for Macy's - 2010-03-12 02:05:25-05
    Madonna has revealed details of her upcoming fashion line for Macy's, and it's not the collection you might expect. Her new Material Girl collection is a junior line targeting 13 to 25 year olds. The Material Girl range will include apparel, handbags, footwear, and jewelry. The collection was reportedly inspired by Madonna's teenage daughter Lourdes Leon, [...]
  33. Cynthia Vincent Grocery Bag | Glitzy Metallic Blue Shopper - 2010-03-12 03:05:10-05
    It's called a grocery bag, but something tells me this Cynthia Vincent shopper would be more at home in a disco than the local supermarket! The slouchy, simple shape resembles a typical shopper, but that's where the similarities end. Never before have I seen such an ostentatious grocery bag. Instead of dull cotton canvas, Cynthia Vincent [...]
  34. Matthew Williamson to Design Bags for Bulgari - 2010-03-12 04:05:35-05
    Bulgari has tapped British designer Matthew Williamson to create its handbag collection for spring/summer 2011. This is the first time the Italian luxury label has had an official designer at the helm. Bulgari bags tend to be conservative and elegant affairs, so it will be interesting to see whether Williamson reigns in the exuberant color he [...]
  35. Ellington In-Flight Tote Bag | Lightweight Traditional Practical Travel Handbag - 2010-03-12 05:05:51-05
    Ellington obviously had jetsetters in mind when it created the In-Flight Tote. The styling is simple but classic. There's no fluff or frippery about it, but its look isn't likely to date any time soon. And in this periwinkle blue it does have a certain charm. It's not the best looking travel bag I've ever seen, but [...]
  36. Tianni Cat Cartoon Duffel | Surreal Summery Weekend Bag - 2010-03-12 07:51:46-05
    Hmm, what better way to end the week than with a cat covered handbag! Don't worry, I am not talking about a handbag made out of cat skin. Instead, I mean a surprisingly upbeat duffel bag from Tianni, a brand who are usually quite staid and formal with their handbag design. Of course, you can't really [...]
  37. Bodhi Geo Signature Clutch | Graphic Semi-circular Luxury Purse - 2010-03-12 12:34:40-05
    Bodhi are luxury designers who produce absurdly expensive bags that have real character - and if you are going to spend $588 on a clutch then you might as well buy something which stands out from the crowd! This particular bag is built in a very unusual semicircular shape. Whilst obviously terrible if you want to [...]
  38. Franchi Mina Disco Clutch | Glitzy Metallic Leather Party Purse - 2010-03-13 01:05:45-05
    Is it any wonder why this Franchi purse is called the Mina Disco? With its dotted metallic leather body, it looks like it could have been a disco ball in a former life! I'd definitely take this shimmery purse back to the discotheque. It looks like it was born to be on the dance floor, complementing [...]
  39. Red Scarf Equestrian Creates Stylish Eco-Friendly Horse Riding Handbags - 2010-03-13 02:05:57-05
    Red Scarf Equestrian creates luggage and travel bags for horse lovers and girls on the go. Red Scarf has four very different collections: Elite, Pro Rider, Classic, and Wildside. The Elite collection suits my taste for luxury, and the more casual Pro Rider range is also lovely. But unless you're an equestrian enthusiast I'd steer clear [...]
  40. Tianni East West Double Handle Tote | Cute Casual Fabric Handbag - 2010-03-13 03:05:37-05
    There are two kinds of totes. You've got your glamour pusses; the leather beauties designed to look sophisticated and polished whether you're slogging it out in the office or meeting a new man for drinks. They're gorgeous, but also inevitably pricy. Then there are the more casual, low maintenance totes. You're more likely to see these [...]
  41. Deux Filles en Fil Makes Fold-Up Eco-Friendly Handbags - 2010-03-13 04:05:23-05
    If you're looking for a handbag that stretches your dollar further, consider the unusual accessories from Deux Filles en Fil. The bags come as a kind of Ikea style flat-pack, ready-to-assemble in a variety of ways. These are the true origami bags, but with press-studs inside there are no craft skills necessary! There are many designs [...]
  42. Spiegel Cinched Satin Clutch | Affordable Pleated Evening Bag - 2010-03-13 17:53:44-05
    A pretty purse like this Spiegel clutch is the perfect accompaniment to a classy evening do. The shape of this is surprisingly unusual, especially considering that in essence this is just a cute and affordable satin bag. Sure, it is rectangular, but add to that a cinched in centre and quirky curved fold-over shape, and this [...]
  43. Big Buddha Sunny Tote | Spacious Metallic Mesh Flower Bag - 2010-03-14 17:54:20-04
    If you want a weekend bag with some pretty feminine adornment then this Big Buddha tote should suit you. I have to start this post by saying that personally I am not convinced by the gentle mint green metallic body. Were it matte I would probably like it more, but I feel the glossy shade makes this [...]
  44. Bagadocious Creates Dust Bags for Storing Your Favorite Purses - 2010-03-14 21:50:34-04
    Modern high end luxury purses tend to come with dust bags to keep them in pristine condition, but they're not the only handbags that need protecting. Bagadocious storage bags are a great storage option for those oft neglected purses. It's a lot better than simply stashing your vintage purses and affordable mid-range handbags at the [...]
  45. Marc by Marc Jacobs Groovee New Q Leather Bag | Posh Cream Leather Bag With Quirky Bead Details - 2010-03-14 23:15:20-04
    Marc Jacobs is the master of figuring out what American girls want and delivering it in a timely fashion. From edgy downtown looks to sophisticated uptown digs, he's got us covered. This Groovee New Q is a little bit of both Marc Jacobs styles. The cream leather supple and smooth, with a fabulous sheen that brings [...]
  46. Mary Frances Sea World Clutch | Marine Scene Art Applique Purse - 2010-03-15 00:41:47-04
    I have a confession to make. While her accessories are undeniably gaudy and kitsch, I have a soft spot in my heart for Mary Frances. This Sea World clutch is a fantastic example of the designer's over the top accessories. Mary Frances creates an underwater grotto on this silk purse, with beaded starfish, coral, and a [...]
  47. VeVe Collections Handbags From Haiti Make Big Impression in America - 2010-03-15 00:43:44-04
    We've seen many prominent handbag designers doing their best to help Haiti rebuild after the recent earthquake, but it's refreshing to see a fashion brand from this devastated country rising again. In fact, Phelicia Dell's VeVe Collection is doing so well that isn't taken her to Florida's upcoming Miami Fashion Week festival. Phelicia and her team of [...]
  48. Echo Reversible Tote Bag | Bold Colorful Two-Way Canvas Bag - 2010-03-15 01:19:51-04
    Echo gives us two great looks with this fun Reversible Tote Bag. This is a simply styled tote, but its inside-out appeal ensures it doesn't get boring. After all, once the paisley print loses its charm you can reverse the tote and rock its dotty pattern. These conservative black and white spots have a classic look, [...]
  49. M. Andonia Inked Overnighter | Bold Graphic Print Travel Bag with Crystals - 2010-03-15 02:05:04-04
    If you've got a short getaway planned, this M. Andonia overnighter may be the travel companion you're looking for. This Inked Overnighter couldn't have more attitude if it tried. Near-naked tattooed beauties lounge provocatively amidst rainbows and colorful patterns. Look closely and you'll see Swarovski colored crystals nestled amongst the design. Fans of labels like Kathy [...]
  50. Green One Ventures Creates Green Grocery Bags with Style - 2010-03-15 03:05:51-04
    We all know that reusable shoppers are the best eco-friendly alternative to throwaway plastic bags. But most of these green accessories are sorely lacking in style. That's why the gorgeous totes from Canadian brand Green One Ventures have really turned my head. Colorful and artistic designs are printed on each cotton canvas bag. The feminine Yellow [...]
  51. Soapbox The Moppet Diaper Bag | Fashionable Retro Orange Circle Baby Messenger - 2010-03-15 04:05:37-04
    Soapbox has stylish new moms covered with it's the Moppet Diaper Bag. This messenger-style handbag features a bold retro design, with striking orange and white circles making a decisive fashion statement. Many moms may be nervous about all the white on The Moppet, but they needn't be. Mashed bananas and baby puke will easily wipe from [...]
  52. Green Verandah Recycled Newspaper and Bottle Bags Good for Planet and Society - 2010-03-15 05:05:34-04
    I was beginning to think I'd seen handbags crafted from every recycled material imaginable, but it seems I was wrong. Green Veranda uses humble newspapers to create its eye-catching range of accessories. That might make some folks worry about taking Green Veranda bags out in the rain, but there's no need to stress. The intricate newspaper [...]
  53. Yak Pak Liberty Bowler Bag | Practical Plaid Canvas Handbag - 2010-03-15 06:05:01-04
    Yak Pak's Liberty Bowler is one of those rare handbags that surpasses expectations. When I first laid eyes on it, I thought it was cute enough, and that the design seemed practical enough. I didn't dislike the bowler, but I certainly wasn't wowed. That was before taking the Liberty out for a busy day of errands [...]
  54. Lauren Merkin Allie Clutch | Stingray-Print Double Flap Purse - 2010-03-15 09:26:51-04
    Lauren Merkin never goes wild with her clutch designs - but she does always produce something with a bit of an edge. Whilst people are getting fed up with hearing things being described as "edgy", I have to say that this adjective really applies to the Allie clutch. It is reasonably simple, but the minimalist shape [...]
