  1. Chanel Quilted Patent Wristlet | Classic Red Leather Luxury Small Purse - 2010-08-17 02:05:21-04
    Downsize your accessories while maintaining your sense of style with this quilted patent wristlet from Chanel. It may be small, but this Chanel purse has most of the hallmarks of the iconic French brand. There's the chic flap, the engraved turn-lock, and that glossy diamond quilted patent leather. All that is omitted is the large interlocking [...]
  2. Salvatore Ferragamo Releases W Bag on Fashion's Night Out | Models Customize New Handbag at New York Store - 2010-08-17 03:05:25-04
    Salvatore Ferragamo will celebrate Fashion's Night Out on September 10 with the launch of its new W bag. The luxe accessory, named after the fashion house's matriarch Wanda Ferragamo, is a modern interpretation of the bag original designed by Fiamma Ferragamo in the 1970s. It might take its cues from vintage fashion, but its woven leather [...]
  3. Charles David Cloverfield Satchel | Quilted Black Wrinkled Leather Fold-Over Style Bag - 2010-08-17 04:05:06-04
    Charles David delivers a black bag that is anything but basic in this Cloverfield Satchel. I'm impressed with the way the designer has combined traditional looks with cutting edge techniques. The satchel appears conservative, but there are so many interesting design elements that we rarely see in a bag that toes the line. Its black leather [...]
  4. Fair Trade Annie O Accessories from Peru | Designer Helps Women Overcome Poverty and Domestic Violence with Fashion Range - 2010-08-17 05:05:29-04
    Colorado based designer Annie O. Waterman celebrates traditional Peruvian materials and helps the women of South America rise above their circumstances with her colorful accessories range. Annie O's collection features hand-embroidered purses, scarves, belts, jewelry, and other fashion items all made in accordance with Fair Trade practices. More than just accessories, Waterman says the products in [...]
  5. Chinese Laundry Michelle Satchel | Unique Oversized Flared Purple Vinyl Belted Handbag - 2010-08-17 06:05:57-04
    Chinese Laundry delivers style on a budget with this funky Michelle satchel. The flared shape is stunning, and the pebbled vinyl body a convincing alternative to leather. I love the idea of the wide belt which circles the satchel, but I'm not impressed by its execution. I suppose the glossy finish is attempting to look like [...]
  6. Aldo Rucinski Beaded Clutch | Colorful And Casual Day Purse - 2010-08-17 07:37:35-04
    It isn't often that you find a beaded bag that manages to be casual, but I think that Aldo have achieved just that with their Rucinski clutch. So, what makes this casual? Well, I think it must be the bright and happily colored beads that do it. Rather than subtle coordinating colors and glitzy shades, this [...]
  7. Lodis Large Ballet Purse | Sleek and Functional Wallet - 2010-08-17 07:54:45-04
    We are used to seeing cute wallet style clutches from Lodis, and this simple Ballet purse is no exception. Following in the footsteps of the stunning Padova Primadonna, this is an incredibly simple way to make an impact. There isn't much to talk about with this clutch. You have the plain rectangular shape, with its sharp [...]
  8. Stella McCartney Washed Studded Silk Clutch | Sleek Black Satin Foldover Clutch With Stud Detail - 2010-08-17 18:29:36-04
    Stella McCartney's signature brand of eco-minimalism has a cult following. Urban fashionistas love her designs, but outside of cities, she wasn't much of a name until she began collaborating with Adidas. But she might just be able to garner a larger audience with sleek, pared-down pieces like this one. The soft black washed silk fabric would [...]
  9. Maison Martin Margiela Oversized Jewelry Box Bag | Quirky Chic Black Faux Leather Hard-Cased Shoulder Bag - 2010-08-17 20:00:31-04
    Martin Margiela's avant garde designs are often difficult for women to actually imagine wearing, even if they really like them. Which makes this oversized jewelry box bag sort of a crossover item, because it is way more mainstream than Margiela's usual fare. The faux black leather, or pleather as I like to call it, on this [...]
  10. Christian Louboutin Amaya Ruffled Satin Clutch | Glamorous Old Hollywood Black Satin Ruffled Evening Bag - 2010-08-17 23:00:31-04
    Christian Louboutin brings a French, feminine look to everything he designs. There's something so special about his accessories that they are almost always reserved for evening wear. This Amaya clutch is a testament to the man's uncanny ability to design the chicest pieces around. The black satin fabric on the Amaya is perfect. It has shine [...]
  11. Chloe Ely Medium Shoulder Bag | Striped Black Goatskin Leather Handbag - 2010-08-18 02:05:29-04
    I spend so much time looking at handbags that it takes something special to really turn my head. But I think I've found it in the Ely shoulder bag from Chloe. This isn't from the brand's affordable diffusion collection, but from its signature line. So it's not surprising that no expense has been spared. It's made from [...]
  12. Helen Rochfort's Scratch and Sniff Handbags | Quirky British Designer Releases Retro Scented Fruit Purses - 2010-08-18 03:11:16-04
    I remember being a child in the 80s when scratch and sniff stickers were all the rage. With everything else from this colorful decade being resurrected, perhaps it's not so surprising that Helen Rochfort has released a collection of scratch and sniff handbags! If we're honest though, this has come out of left field. But I [...]
  13. Chocolate Priscila Tote | Flowers & Leaves Ice Blue Synthetic Handbag - 2010-08-18 04:05:45-04
    Chocolate was clearly inspired by nature when creating the Priscila, a tote which goes beyond the typical floral bag. This is one dramatic tote, with three-dimensional rosettes adorning one corner and large leaves covering the other. The synthetic appliqué pushes the envelope, but in this gentle blue I think Chocolate gets away with the risk. The [...]
  14. Petit Et Beau Does Children's Bags | Cute Luxury Style Purses for Little Girls - 2010-08-18 05:05:35-04
    Petit Et Beau has released two new handbags for mini fashionistas, which might just make grown-up girls jealous! The first is the Red Rose Diamante Bag, which takes its style cues from French fashion house Valentino. The bright red fabric roses aren't as luxurious as the ones that donned the Valentino bags of course, but for [...]
  15. Christian Dior Ring Detail Boston Bag | Caramel Calfskin Hardware Accented Handbag - 2010-08-18 06:05:42-04
    Christian Dior gives the Boston bag an equestrian makeover with this Ring Detail purse. There's definitely a preppy feel to this caramel colored leather bag, which is adorned in gold-tone rings arranged in a lattice design. It's like nothing I've ever seen, which is definitely saying something when you spend much of the day writing about [...]
  16. BCBG Max Azira Fold-Over Clutch | Classsic Slouchy Mesh Evening Bag - 2010-08-18 09:06:18-04
    What's this, you say? A metal mesh clutch made by someone other than Whiting & Davis?! Remarkable! It may be a rare sight, but BCBG have given the mesh masters a run for their money with this fold-over clutch. Instead of emulating the designer's penchant for vintage looks and art nouveau, BCBG have instead chosen to [...]
  17. Etienne Aigner Adelaide Hobo | Traditional and Elegant Structured Leather Satchel - 2010-08-18 09:27:20-04
    Without fail, Etienne Aigner always manage to produce my favourite classic and simple shoulder bags. The key for me is in the great design and the reasonable pricing - this hobo only costs $109. For the price you get a lot of handbag. The real leather is soft and in that rich tan shade that will [...]
  18. Alexander Wang Amber Leather Notebook Clutch | Playful Python-Printed Leather Notebook-Shaped Clutch - 2010-08-18 19:10:44-04
    Alexander Wang was little known until a few years ago, when he was "discovered" by Vogue editor Anna Wintour. Since then, his career has made a straight shot to the top, and urban fashionistas, in particular, love his clean, minimal designs and quirky sense of humor. I'm not sure, however, that this Amber clutch showcases [...]
  19. Sara Berman Charlotte Pom Pom Suede Tote | Chic And Practical Purple Suede Carryall With Pom Pom Tassels - 2010-08-18 22:00:36-04
    I have mixed feelings about accessories newcomer Sara Berman. On the one hand, I think her designs are pared down interpretations of current trends at somewhat reasonable prices. But on the other hand, sometimes I find her design sense derivative and boring, and while I appreciate her slightly lower than average designer price points, I'm [...]
  20. Christian Louboutin Marianna Rider Shoulder Bag | Brown Coyote Fur Handbag - 2010-08-19 02:05:38-04
    Ordinarily I gush over Christian Louboutin's luxurious accessories, but this Marianna Rider tote leaves me cold. Of course there are the obvious ethical questions surrounding this bag. Fur may still spell opulence in many circles, but these days the use of animal pelts is becoming less socially acceptable. Some may suggest that the use of coyote [...]
  21. Louloubelle Bags Releases Limited Edition Hazel Purse for Horse Charity | Designer Donates to Irish Horse Welfare Trust - 2010-08-19 03:05:30-04
    Louloubelle Bags has released a limited edition handbag called the Hazel to raise funds for the Irish Horse Welfare Trust (IHWT). The Hazel was named after the rescue horse adopted by Louloubelle Bags designer and owner Louise O'Leary. It's made of ethically source Tuscan leather in the same deep brown shade as her beloved horse. "Having rescued [...]
  22. Coach Poppy Bella Tote Bag | Floral Graffiti Rose Handbag - 2010-08-19 04:05:27-04
    Coach gets bold with this Bella tote bag from its youth-oriented Poppy line. Louis Vuitton brought back graffiti style prints recently with its Stephen Sprouse tribute collection, but I think Coach brings something new to the table here. I really like the mix of edgy and feminine here; the thick black outlines make the roses appear [...]
  23. Holstee Makes Wallets From Trash | Green Purses That Clean India's Streets - 2010-08-19 05:05:29-04
    Eco-friendly fashion label Holstee is cleaning up the streets of India with its recycled wallets. The innovative wallets are actually crafted from the newspapers and other trash found on the roads of Delhi. No efforts are made to hide these materials; they're celebrated with a design that acts as a kind of artistic collage. The wallets are [...]
  24. Coccinelle Softy Winter Hobo | Large Double Handled Pel Mont Tan Leather Handbag - 2010-08-19 06:05:02-04
    It may not be Christmas just yet, but Coccinelle has me celebrating the cooler weather with this Softy Winter hobo. It's got a chilly name, but there's honestly not a lot that's wintery about this bag. In fact, it's really a purse for all seasons, with its timeless tan leather body and spacious design. It's also not [...]
  25. Pura Lopez Oversized Tote | Canvas or Straw Designer Hold-all - 2010-08-19 08:26:51-04
    If you need a spacious shopping bag with some designer oomph, then this Pura Lopez tote will no doubt appeal. Available in a choice of traditional utilitarian styled canvas, or this cute textured straw, this handbag isn't about luxury events. Instead, it aims to give you a lot of interior space, in combination with sophisticated good [...]
  26. Calvin Klein C-Link Clutch | Affordable and Classic Leather Purse - 2010-08-19 08:50:41-04
    Calvin Klein are getting quite good at the business of producing designer inspired handbags that are actually quite affordable. Take, for example, the C-Link clutch, which is only $51! I am impressed that this clutch is made out of leather. After all, designers usually like to up their margins by keeping the leather for the expensive [...]
  27. Nancy Gonzalez Patent-Crocodile Bag | Exotic Eye-Catching Red Patent Crocodile Handbag - 2010-08-19 23:42:54-04
    Nancy  Gonzalez is a Colombian designer who has all her designs handcrafted in her home country. Not only that, but she maintains her own exotic animal farms, which allows her a great deal of quality control over both the materials and craftsmanship of her line. The result of all this control is a line of [...]
  28. Alexander Wang Sydney Velvet Backpack | Utilitarian Styled Backpack in Lush Black Velvet - 2010-08-20 01:00:14-04
    Alexander Wang is known for bridging the gap between the avant garde and the mainstream. His designs usually combine the best of both worlds. This soft, edgy black velvet backpack is a good example of his design aesthetic, although I'm not positive it's his most successful endeavor. The crushed black velvet instantly recalls the late 90's. [...]
  29. Valentino Floral Canvas Tote | Sturdy And Sophisticated Cream Canvas Carryall With Floral Appliques - 2010-08-20 01:30:01-04
    Valentino's designs are the stuff that dreams are made of. His softly feminine line has been gracing red carpets for decades, and his ready-to-wear line is a favorite among the elite. This cream floral canvas tote seems brings a casual air to the line's usually dressed up approach. The cream canvas is extremely durable and practical, [...]
  30. Cole Haan Amalfi Shoulder Bag | Pleated Nappa Leather East/West Tassel Handbag - 2010-08-20 02:05:51-04
    It seems Cole Haan has been influenced by the Italian coast with this gorgeous Amalfi shoulder bag. It's made from buttery Nappa leather which is tightly pleated across the top to dramatic effect. I love the contrast of those teeny tiny pleats and the soft tassel and body. The chain strap is similarly striking with its [...]
  31. Alejandra Dunphy Designs Eco-Friendly Fair Trade Clutches | Handwoven Wool Purses from Peru - 2010-08-20 03:05:23-04
    Atlanta based designer Alejandra Dunphy shows us that eco-chic can be stylish with her new range of green clutch purses. The former environmental design consultant has built on her knowledge of sustainable materials and practices in the development of her own accessories line. Each purse is made of Merino wool hand loomed by Peruvian artisans using [...]
  32. Coloriffics Light Silver Satin Stone Handbag | Gem Covered Evening Purse - 2010-08-20 04:05:38-04
    When I spotted this Coloriffics handbag, I was sure the brand had raided my childhood closet. I am certain I had a bag just like this when I was around the age of seven. I know that many styles of the 80s are making a comeback, but I'm not sure this is one of them. The [...]
  33. Snooki Does Gucci | Handbag Rivals Gift "Jersey Shore" Star with Sukey Bag - 2010-08-20 05:05:31-04
    Designers always hope that a celebrity will be snapped wearing their fashions and carrying their purses ... unless that celebrity is Jersey Shore starlet Snooki. The fashion rumor mill is buzzing with word that the Gucci Sukey handbag that seems permanently attached to the reality star's arm was a gift, not from Gucci but from the [...]
  34. Comme des Garcons Tartan Tote | Plaid North/South Style Wool Handbag - 2010-08-20 06:05:14-04
    It might be crafted in France, but this Tartan Tote from Comme des Garcons proudly channels Scottish style. This is a simple woolen tote made more interesting thanks to the bold tartan print. This is no shy, retiring plaid. While Burberry opts for muted tones, Comme des Garcons prefers a bold meeting of red, blue, and [...]
  35. Nicole Miller Jolie Fold Clutch | Textured and Decorated Evening Bag - 2010-08-20 08:33:34-04
    This Nicole Miller evening bag deserves recognition for daring to look different to all the other clutches out there. Unlike many of the more unique handbags, the Jolie clutch still manages to be pretty formal. Instead of going over-the-top, the designer has concentrated her efforts on finding a way to make quilting and sumptuous texture marry [...]
  36. Juicy Couture Juicy Items Tote | Simple and Surprisingly Elegant Shopping Bag - 2010-08-20 08:54:38-04
    We aren't used to seeing simple bags from Juicy Couture - we are much more used to see velor creations, or hot pink Barbie bags. However, elegant is exactly what the Juicy Items tote is. Sure, it still has that famous logo all over it, but you would expect that from a brand whose main custom is [...]
  37. Cynthia Vincent Jasper Hobo | Luxury Slouchy Slashed Leather Handbag - 2010-08-21 02:05:58-04
    I love the way hobos are becoming less boho and more elegant these days. A great example of this growing trend is this sophisticated Jasper bag from Cynthia Vincent. The designer takes a few liberties with its shape, but remains true to the hobo's ethos. The style's trademark slouch is ever present, but its lush leather [...]
  38. Structured Handbags & Envelope Clutches Big Fall Trends | Fashion Predictions for New Season Styles - 2010-08-21 03:05:03-04
    It's time to pull your structured handbags out of the closet, as the ladylike styles are set to be the must-have accessory for fall. The clean lines of these vintage-inspired accessories are the perfect foil for the long 50s style skirts and tailored jackets we're all going to wear. While large structured bags are likely to be [...]
  39. Dan W Metallic Leopard Satchel | Large Synthetic Animal Print Handbag - 2010-08-21 04:05:27-04
    If you're looking for a handbag that's loud and proud, you've come to the right place. Feast your eyes on this flamboyant Metallic Leopard Satchel from Dan W. This is a handbag that's unashamedly brash. From the bold leopard print spots covering its synthetic body to the sparkling gems adorning the silvery vertical accents, it's an [...]
  40. MCM Release Boston Bag Collection | Luxury Fashion House Reinvents Classic Handbag Style - 2010-08-21 05:05:35-04
    MCM is continuing to forge its American fashion comeback with plans to release a new handbag collection inspired by the classic Boston bag. The range looks to combine traditional looks with cutting edge design. There are five different styles in all; the signature printed Cognac bag, the Mongolian bag with its dangling foxtail, the black nylon [...]
  41. Alexander Wang Anita Leather Bag | Chic And Minimal Square Black Leather Satchel - 2010-08-21 20:48:50-04
    Alexander Wang is a hot young darling of the fashion world. His clean, avant garde aesthetic has managed to appeal to a much wider audience than your average experimentalist designer. This Anita bag is a good example of how he brings minimalist style to a level loved by the masses. The textured black leather of this [...]
  42. Marni Leather Metal-Detail Clutch | Elegant Minimal Grey-Brown Clutch With Metal Detail - 2010-08-21 23:00:42-04
    Marni is one of those lines that I can never quite pin down. Sometimes they make very minimal, elegant designs, and sometimes they veer off into the world of current trends. I like them best when they stick to clean, pared-down designs like this metal detail clutch. The grey brown of this bag is a very [...]
  43. Tory Burch Carson Messenger Leather Bag | Sophisticated Chain Embellished Black Leather Bag - 2010-08-22 01:00:06-04
    Tory Burch is known for creating uptown classics, but lately she's been experimenting with slightly edgier designs. That doesn't mean that any of the upscale, uptown appeal of her work has dissipated, it's just sort of been added to by this new approach. This Carson messenger bag is a great example of Burch's new, more [...]
  44. Diane Von Furstenberg Marlene Lace Clutch | Lacy Envelope Purse with Retro Mosaic Brooch - 2010-08-22 22:13:40-04
    Diane Von Furstenberg channels the 80s with this fun Marlene Lace Clutch. The black floral lace body may well have been made from the same material as Madonna's famous fingerless gloves. This retro fabric is offset with a colorful mosaic brooch. This accent is striking, and really the star here. The vibrant turquoise and gentle lilac [...]
  45. Chloe Darla Large Leather Tote | Striking Rich Burgundy Leather Handbag - 2010-08-22 22:16:55-04
    Chloe has this way of making classic bags that still seem modern and even a little edgy. This Darla tote is not particularly edgy, but even as a person who doesn't really go in for conservative styles, I really dig it. There's just something retro-fabulous about it that makes it look really spot on. Burgundy is [...]
  46. Isabel Toledo Releases Shoes and Handbags for Payless | Great Footwear, Shame About the Purses - 2010-08-22 23:23:43-04
    Isabel Toledo is preparing to launch her first collection of shoes and handbags for Payless Shoeshource. The affordable collection marries the designer's enthusiasm for art and fashion. "The main inspiration for my first Payless collection was to create a line of shoes that I could wear on a daily basis and that would make a bold [...]
  47. Devi Kroell Origami Eel Clutch | Small Envelope Style Luxury Turquoise Purse - 2010-08-22 23:57:32-04
    The moment my eyes settled on this Devi Kroell Origami Eel Clutch I was in love. In the immortal words of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, let me count the ways. Of course there is that stunning origami texture, which adds more drama than regular eel skin could. Each and every fold is perfectly executed and lovely. All [...]
  48. Mulberry's New Autumn/Winter Apple Accessories | British Designer Does Tech Cases - 2010-08-23 00:23:34-04
    Mulberry has released its latest batch of tech goodies as part of its autumn/winter 2010 collection. The eight-piece range was designed exclusively for Apple, and is made to suit its most popular products including iPods and MacBooks. "Apple products are too beautiful to reside in drab bags!," Mulberry's Creative Director Emma Hill said when the brands [...]
  49. Diesel I Want More Wicca Tote | Synthetic Leather Ruched Purse - 2010-08-23 09:04:49-04
    Casual-yet-smart brand Diesel have released yet another smart tote with a funky vibe. I don't really know why the "I Want More Wicca" bag is called what it is. I can't see anything that makes the name particularly relevant, and it does make me wonder if Diesel are taking the opportunity to stir up a little [...]
  50. Rafe Kelly Flap Clutch | Eco-Friendly Purse Created From Recycled Plastic Bags - 2010-08-23 09:25:36-04
    Generally designer brand Rafe produce sleek and elegant handles with a modern yet sophisticated looks. I hate to admit it, but I am not sure if the Kelly clutch falls into that category. Don't get me wrong. This handbag is made from reclaimed and then recycled plastic bags, which is pretty damn cool. Considering the ingredients, [...]
  51. Judith Leiber Fish Fine Crystal-Embellished Clutch | Elegant Absurdist Black And Gold Fish-Shaped Evening Bag - 2010-08-23 10:19:52-04
    Judith Leiber comes up with a lot of fanciful designs. Her evening bags are a veritable menagerie of sparkling delights. But these bejeweled wonders come at a spectacular price, and sometimes with a bizarre comic look that doesn't seem in keeping with their high price tags. This fish clutch is one of those bags. The combination [...]
