Hi mary,

Check out the latest handbag fashion news and review at BagBunch.com:
  1. Inge Christopher Willa Cross-Body Bag | Exotic Metallic Printed Linen Handbag - 2011-07-12 02:05:44-04
    Inge Christopher dresses up linen with this Willa cross-body bag. This is a very clever bag, as it gives us the exotic looks of a snake purse in a much more durable and affordable package. The metallic pewter sheen of the snake scales makes this bag seem much richer than its $110 price tag would suggest. [...]
  2. Whitney Port's New Summertime Festival Bag | Limited Edition Tote for Irish Mall Event - 2011-07-12 03:05:37-04
    Former reality TV starlet and head of Whitney Eve, Whitney Port, has created a new tote bag for summer's upcoming music festivals. The casual canvas tote is decorated with an Aztec style graphic print. It's not going to revolutionize the fashion industry, but it is quite stylish. It's also affordable at just €15. And best of [...]
  3. Juicy Couture Trompe l'Oeil Canvas Tote | Daydreamer Graphic Bag with Bow - 2011-07-12 04:05:10-04
    If you can't quite afford Juicy Couture's classic Daydreamer tote, the iconic American brand may have created the next best thing. Meet the Trompe l'Oeil Canvas Tote. This cute tote features a Daydreamer bag adorned with a fun satin bow, just like the real thing. It's a clever trompe l'oeil; while it's not going to fool [...]
  4. Kate Spade Collaborates with Current/Elliot | New Westward Capsule Bag Collection - 2011-07-12 05:05:34-04
    Deborah Lloyd, Kate Spade's creative director and president, has teamed up with Emily Current and Meritt Elliot of denim brand Current/Elliot for the Westward capsule collection. This is one of the more unlikely designer collaborations we've seen. Kate Spade is famous for its conservative retro style, while Current/Elliot items ooze casual California cool. However one look at [...]
  5. Ed Hardy Helen Tote | Unusual Purple Butterfly Synthetic Handbag - 2011-07-12 06:05:03-04
    I rarely warm to Ed Hardy's tattoo graphic covered accessories, but I have to tip my hat to the designer for creating this unusual Helen tote. With so many totes looking like cardboard cutouts, it's refreshing to find one with a style all its own. It has a trapezoidal shape broken up by large circular cut-out [...]
  6. Christian Louboutin Dancing Queen Calf Hair Box Clutch | High Glam Leopard Print Bag - 2011-07-12 21:19:24-04
    Christian Louboutin is the modern prince of French fashion. His red-soled signatures have dominated the red carpet for almost a decade. His handbags are somewhat lesser known, but only somewhat. This dramatic Dancing Queen clutch will definitely turn heads on any color carpet. The combination of calf hair and animal print on the Dancing Queen is [...]
  7. Emilio Pucci Studded Textured Leather Clutch | Rocker Chic Black Braided Bag - 2011-07-12 23:00:34-04
    Emilio Pucci has been a little bit of a disappointment to me, lately. The line seems to have thrown away their signature mod style in favor of following the trends, and the results have been iffy, to say the least. This studded clutch, however, is rock-n-roll and fabulous, and if they're going to follow fashion, [...]
  8. Marni Textured Leather Tote | Cool Black Bubble Wrap Effect Carryall - 2011-07-13 01:00:03-04
    Marni seems to be taking sort of a Miu Miu turn, lately. In the 90's I might have meant that as a compliment, but currently what I mean is that they just can't be relied on. I actually quite like this bubble textured tote, but it's too expensive and not exciting enough to warrant its [...]
  9. Chinese Laundry Rose Clutch | Rosette Accented Red Purse - 2011-07-13 02:05:44-04
    Chinese Laundry gives the simple clutch purse a feminine makeover with this Rose Clutch. Don't mistake feminine for ultra girly though; this clutch is one for modern misses. The synthetic rosette has great structure, so it appears a bit edgier than one with softer petals might have. This bloom takes center stage on what is otherwise [...]
  10. YMI Does Handbags & Shoes | Youth Fashion Label Adds Accessories This Fall - 2011-07-13 03:05:55-04
    Junior lifestyle brand YMI is adding handbags, small leather goods, and footwear to its fashion collection. The label will work with Blank Generation's Noir Empire division on its new accessory line. Deke Jamieson, the executive vice president of marketing and licensing for YMI, says he feels the partnership is a "great match," due to Blank Generation's [...]
  11. Magid Sequin Stripe Heart Clutch | Cute Sequined Evening Purse - 2011-07-13 04:05:23-04
    We've always known Magid could create great casual daytime accessories, but we've recently learned the fashion house knows how to turn it on after five. This Sequin Stripe Heart Clutch is one of Magid's most adorable, and affordable, evening accessories. There's something about a heart shaped purse that makes me smile. It might not be very [...]
  12. Jessica Simpson's Birkin Birthday Surprise | Fiance Gives Pop Star Hermes Present - 2011-07-13 05:05:58-04
    Jessica Simpson had a very happy 31st birthday on Sunday after her fiancé Eric Johnson presented her with a brand new Hermes Birkin bag. The generous $15, 000 gift is sure to pop against the pop star and fashion designer's typically conservative wardrobe as it's bright orange. Black, brown, or navy might have been more timeless, [...]
  13. Big Buddha Layla Clutch | Convertible Quilted Taupe Synthetic Purse - 2011-07-13 06:05:01-04
    It might not quite have me on my knees, but I've fallen hard for Big Buddha's Layla. I can't help thinking of the Matelasse bags as I take in the quilting on the Layla. Just as Miu Miu did before, Big Buddha's stepped outside the box with this stitching to create a finish that's dramatic and [...]
  14. Marc by Marc Jacobs Hillier PVC Shoulder Bag | Unfortunate Update On A Formerly Cool Bag - 2011-07-13 21:05:44-04
    When I reviewed the original Hillier bag, all I wanted was for it to be slightly less expensive so that I could buy it. Well, this is one of those "be careful what you wish for" situations. I got a lower price tag, but this really isn't what I wanted. The problem with the new version [...]
  15. DKNY Luster Leather Tote | Classy Conservative Tan Carryall - 2011-07-13 22:00:26-04
    Earlier in the season, I was totally in love with DKNY's low key, affordable aesthetic. But, lately, I'm just not so sure. Things are getting a little boring. This "Luster" leather tote is about as uninspiring a bag as I've ever seen. The camel-colored leather of the Luster is good way to start, material-wise, but it's [...]
  16. Nicole Lee Floria Satchel | Adorable Blue Floral Laser Cut Handbag - 2011-07-14 02:05:52-04
    Anyone who knows Nicole Lee knows she never takes herself too seriously. Her accessories are fun and just a little frivolous, but they never fail to make a style statement. And with the Floria, she seems to be saying "I really love flowers!" If you don't share her enthusiasm this bag will be far too much [...]
  17. Sarah Jessica Parker Leaves Halston Heritage | "Sex and the City" Actress Rumored to Leave Design Firm - 2011-07-14 03:05:59-04
    Sarah Jessica Parker has reportedly parted ways with Halston Heritage. The actress served as the president and chief creative officer of Halston's diffusion label since January 2010. Details are very scant at the moment, but the always reliable Women's Wear Daily reports that the Sex and the City star is working on terminating her agreement with [...]
  18. Kathy Van Zeeland Tag Team Shopper | Leopard Print Graffiti Handbag - 2011-07-14 04:05:54-04
    How do you dress up an ordinary shopper bag? If you're Kathy Van Zeeland you add leopard spots and colorful graffiti and create the Tag Team. Honestly it's not a design approach I'd suggest. It looks really unprofessional, the kind of thing you'd expect a junior high kid to create with some marker pens. But you [...]
  19. Cornelia Guest's New Vegan Handbags | Socialite Designs Cruelty-Free Purses - 2011-07-14 05:05:57-04
    Animal rights activist, actress, and socialite Cornelia Guest is preparing to add handbag designer to her already extensive resume. The American personality will soon launch a line of leather free handbags, wallets, and pet accessories. Guest said she decided to create the vegan collection so she could design and wear the items she loves, and share [...]
  20. Lanvin Crystal Embellished Satin Clutch | Elegant Silver Evening Bag - 2011-07-14 06:00:04-04
    I've weirdly been saving this review for a couple of days. In a saving the best for last sort of way. I'm not sure why. Although Lanvin is one of my favorite lines, I don't really go in much for satin or sparkles. Still, there's something really compelling about the old school glamour of this [...]
  21. Roxy Glimmer Tote | Casual Nautical Striped Yellow Beach Bag - 2011-07-14 06:05:39-04
    If you're still searching for the perfect beach bag, what have you been doing? With the warmer weather threatening to turn cool in the coming months you'll want something cheap and cheerful, something like this Glimmer tote from Roxy. The Glimmer is one of those casual, cotton bags that does just what it says on the [...]
  22. Miu Miu Studded Leather Shoulder Bag | Cool Blue Western-Inspired Studded Bag - 2011-07-14 22:08:34-04
    Miu Miu is no longer on the top of my favorite lines list, but every now and again they come up with something that really surprises me. This studded leather shoulder bag is one of those bags. The blue color of the leather is absolutely pitch perfect. It's like the coolest color of denim, except that [...]
  23. Hilary Radley Foreign Press Clutch | Casual Synthetic Blue Purse - 2011-07-15 02:05:52-04
    Hilary Radley offers an antidote to all those sequin covered, frilly evening purses with this Foreign Press clutch. The Foreign Press is a much more relaxed accessory with an almost messenger bag-like flap design. Some well places stitching and seams do all the talking, giving the Foreign Press its clean and casual good looks. I love [...]
  24. Paris House's Statement Bags | New Zealand Slogan Accessories Make Global Splash - 2011-07-15 03:05:23-04
    Kiwi designer Sharon Paris is creating accessories that are quite literally statement pieces for her fashion brand Paris House. It might surprise you to know that Paris House has been around since 1934, but it's a very different label today than it was back then. Paris' grandfather Cohus conceived the company as a jewelry firm. Her [...]
  25. Kensie Girl Barby Hobo | Ruffled Bow Strap Studded Yellow Purse - 2011-07-15 04:05:45-04
    Kensie Girl is one of those youth lines that makes me long for younger days. I'm not sure my adult self could get away with carrying a purse as girly as the Barby Hobo, but I'd love to try! The secret to Kensie Girl's appeal is that it uses its materials really well. It needs to [...]
  26. Payless Shoesource Gets Brash | Budget Retailer Launches Teen Accessories Line - 2011-07-15 05:05:44-04
    Payless ShoeSource is making a play for the teen market with the August launch of its sister brand, Brash. Brash will feature youthful and on-trend handbags, jewelry, shoes, beauty products, and hair accessories. The label continues Payless' commitment to affordable prices, with pieces ranging from $3 to $45. With most items hovering around the $20 mark, [...]
  27. Carla Mancini Amelia Hobo | Tassel Accented Blue Leather Handbag - 2011-07-15 06:05:30-04
    Carla Mancini takes the hobo back to its bohemian roots with this Amelia bag. The casual slouch and long tassel accent give the Amelia its new age feel, but it's not as rustic as many hobo bags tend to be. The cobalt blue leather is very elegant, and the trapezoidal shape gives the Amelia a bit [...]
  28. Zara Terez Nolita Clutch | Whimsical Navy Bow Purse - 2011-07-16 02:05:30-04
    We're spoilt for choice with Zara Terez' Nolita clutch purse. This whimsical bow covered purse is just one of 26 different Nolitas. So often designers only offer us color options, but here we get real choice with a variety of prints and fabrics. If the bows don't woo you, perhaps tie dye is more your speed, [...]
  29. Luxurious Cruelty-Free Jill Milan Bags | Designer Vegan Handbags Help Horse Charity - 2011-07-16 03:05:55-04
    All too often it seems that vegan leather is too shiny, too thin, and too hard to ever really impress fashion fans. Jill Frazer and her partner Milan Lazich buck the trend with their label Jill Milan, an accessories company offering bags that are cruelty free and luxurious. Jill Milan's leatherette is buttery soft, and a [...]
  30. Paco Mena Francesco Clutch | Affordable Satin Egg Shaped Purse with Jewel Clasp - 2011-07-16 04:05:00-04
    I've noticed an unusual trend on the red carpets lately. More and more stars seem to be trading in their box clutches for quirky egg shaped purses. If you don't have an A-List bank account you can still indulge in the trend with this affordable Francesco clutch from Paco Mena. Paco Mena keeps its Francesco at [...]
  31. Colorado Bag'n Baggage Offers Luggage Fee Rebates | $50 Vouchers with Suitcase Purchase - 2011-07-16 05:05:26-04
    Colorado Bag'n Baggage looks to ease travel woes this summer by offering its customers a $50 rebate for checked luggage fees. Starting next Monday July 18, customers that purchase a suitcase that's 24-inches or larger, and costing $250 or more, will be eligible for the rebate. They'll receive two $25 certificates which can be redeemed through [...]
  32. Lanvin Happy Medium Quilted Leather Shoulder Bag | Chic Quilted Classic Day Bag - 2011-07-16 16:40:21-04
    Lanvin's Happy line is as classic and beautiful as they come. I've always been a fan of its signature feminine chic look. This new Happy Medium adds quilting in to the mix in a new way and the results are subtle and beautiful. The pale taupe color of the leather on the Happy Medium is very [...]
  33. Miu Miu Strass Crystal Embellished Mini Leather Bag | High Octane Fabulous Yellow Clutch - 2011-07-16 19:00:56-04
    I have been notably dubious about the Miu Miu line for some time. It's just not consistent. What they seem to do well, though, is produce ultra luxe bags with a lot of personality, and this Strass bag is one of them. I wouldn't have really thought that this buttery yellow color would make a good [...]
  34. DKNY Leopard Print Calf Hair Shoulder Bag | Gorgeous And Affordable Animal Print Bag - 2011-07-17 21:00:40-04
    DKNY has been a little up and down this season. Frankly, that's kind of an improvement, since before this season I had basically written them off. This leopard print calf hair shoulder bag is a fabulous addition to the line, and I hope they plan on continuing in this fashion. I love the combination of animal [...]
  35. Alexander McQueen Military Skull Leather Box Clutch | Hot Red Gilded Evening Bag - 2011-07-18 00:00:20-04
    Sometimes there's a bag that seems like it was custom-designed to appeal to you personally. For me, more often than not, that bag is made by Alexander McQueen. This Military Skull box clutch is a red hot accessory that will appeal to more than just me, though. It's a little bit of punk mixed with [...]
  36. Michael Kors Kingston Tote | Large Leather Python Printed Handbag - 2011-07-18 00:28:10-04
    Exotic prints are a hard thing to get right. All too easily they can become tacky imitations of the luxurious skins they're mimicking. Michael Kors shows his design prowess with this Kingston tote. The neutral color palette and expertly rendered scales make the Kingston's finish seem much richer than regular leather. It doesn't have the alluring [...]
  37. Weinstein & Schwab Leave Halston | More Staff Resignations at Fashion House - 2011-07-18 01:06:18-04
    It seems the personnel are deserting Halston faster than rats from a sinking ship. Just days after the news broke that Sarah Jessica Parker was on the out, Women's Wear Daily has reported that Harvey Weinstein and Marios Schwab have followed suit. Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has held an equity stake in Halston for several years, [...]
  38. Juicy Couture Pendelton Backpack | Plaid Wool-Blend Pink School Bag - 2011-07-18 01:30:25-04
    I'm not quite sure when it happened, but it seems these days I'm spending more time admiring Juicy Couture accessories than loathing them. I'm sure it was somewhere around the time that the label discovered there was more materials in this world than velour. Either way, this Pendelton Backpack is another stellar accessory from this [...]
  39. Fringe's Free Haircuts | Handbag & Hair Style for One Low Price in New York - 2011-07-18 01:57:56-04
    Fringe, a hair salon in Brooklyn, New York, is helping its customers enjoy a whole new look with its innovative business model. The salon sells handbags, jewelry, and crystal embellished ear buds, and rewards the customers who indulge with complimentary hair services to the same value. For example, someone who indulges in $40 worth of fashion [...]
  40. 7286 by Lindsay Lohan Fifi Baguette | Silver Animal Print Convertible Shoulder Bag - 2011-07-18 03:24:19-04
    7286 is Lindsay Lohan's pet project, something to keep the starlet occupied while she's waiting to land that next movie role or wind up back in rehab. I must admit that I haven't seen a lot of the collection, but if the Fifi is any indication the troubled celebrity may be best served getting back [...]
  41. Diesel's Unusual New Beach Bag | Fashion House Displays Satchels at Miami Swim Show - 2011-07-18 03:46:58-04
    When most of us think of beach bags we tend to imagine brightly colored, easy access totes made of cotton or woven straw. But these handbags are a far cry from the one Diesel displayed in its recent Miami Fashion Week Swim show. If it's up to Diesel, we'll soon be carrying large double handled satchels [...]
  42. Betsey Johnson Betseyville Cheetah Time Barrel Bag | Animal Print Spotted Pink PVC Handbag - 2011-07-18 04:31:49-04
    There's no need to look at your watch. Betsey Johnson is quick to tell us that it's Cheetah Time! I'm not sure whether I share Betsey's enthusiasm, but I certainly can't ignore her barrel bag. That hot pink color is practically iridescent, and the aqua blue highlights really make those black cheetah spots pop. The combination [...]
