Hi mary,

  1. Nicole Miller Lexi Clutch | Rhinestone Decorated Box Purse - 2012-06-04 21:26:21-04
    Nicole Miller gives the classic box clutch a healthy dose of bling with the Lexi. In fact, perhaps Nicole Miller's overdosed on the sparkles. She's used chunky faceted rhinestones here to create an artful art deco design. The motif takes up much of the Lexi's front, so there's certainly no ignoring it. The white gems look [...]
  2. The Sway Makes Leather Bags Green | NYC Brand Turns Scraps Into Luxury Handbags - 2012-06-04 22:46:18-04
    New York label The Sway challenges the notion that leather handbags aren't green with its upcycled leather accessories. The fashion house is the brainchild of Australian born, New York based designer Belinda Pasqua. After studying fashion design in Sydney and Florence, Pasqua commenced her career with tenures at Italy's leading couture fashion houses. She learned the [...]
  3. Nina Ricci ASAP Satchel | Retro Top Handled White Leather Handbag - 2012-06-04 23:49:56-04
    Top-handled satchels are flooding the marketplace, but Nina Ricci attempts to convince us we need to snap its up quickly. Why else would it call it the ASAP? Its name might suggest urgency, but its looks are far from frazzled. This is the kind of bag that appears like the designer's taken its time. It's well [...]
  4. HadeHaver's Recycled Bottle Cap Bags | Cute Eco-Friendly Plastic Lid Purses - 2012-06-05 00:40:23-04
    Portugese pals Sandra Paulo and Bruno Barbosa are giving bottle caps a new lease on life with their quirky accessories label HadeHaver. The former architects use the plastic lids to handcraft everything from clutch purses to shoulder bags and laptop totes. It's an important initiative as the lids' unique plastic is not accepted by many of [...]
  5. Nine West If the Tote Fits Handbag | Colorblocked Red & Brown Purse - 2012-06-05 01:57:45-04
    If the tote fits your lifestyle, you're bound to carry it! But does this If the Tote Fits handbag from Nine West fit you? At its heart the If the Tote Fits is a very traditional tote. We've seen its boxy shape so many times before. The colorblocked finish helps make it feel a bit more [...]
  6. Nixon Rockaway Satchel | Classic Black Leatherette Bucket Shaped Handbag - 2012-06-05 20:38:51-04
    You don't need a rock star budget to enjoy the classic good looks of this Rockaway Satchel. The Rockaway doesn't scream as loudly as many modern musicians, but it's got the same effortless cool as singers that stand the test of time. Its black finish is timeless and its slouchy silhouette gives it a devil may [...]

    Reed Krakoff was named accessory designer of the year at the 2012 Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards. The Coach creative director, who also heads his own signature line, received the title at a star-studded ceremony held at the Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall last night. This year's event was particularly poignant as [...]
  8. O'Neill Nahua Tote | Woven Seagrass Aztec Beach Bag - 2012-06-05 21:33:17-04
    Surf brand O'Neill gets us ready for the beach with this fun Nahua tote. The Nahua is made from tightly woven seagrass, a flowering plant which grows in salty coastal waters. This material resembles rattan, and has a lovely beach flavour. However don't think that just because it's natural it's an eco-conscious alternative. Seagrass plays a [...]
  9. Faux Bag Buyers Are Dishonest | Academic's Explosive Claims About Handbag Purchases - 2012-06-05 22:29:24-04
    Behavioral economist Dan Ariely suggests women that carry fake designer handbags are big trouble. In his new book The Honest Truth About Dishonesty: How We Lie to Everyone – Including Ourselves, Ariely claims imitation brand name purse lovers are more likely to lie, steal, and cheat than women than buy genuine designer goods. The idea that [...]
  10. Oroton Entourage Tote | Simple Pink Leather Carryall Bag - 2012-06-05 23:35:19-04
    Oroton serves up classic design without the luxury price tag with this Entourage tote. This Entourage's bold pink color won't suit everyone, but I love its retro appeal. The Entourage is such a simple bag that I believe it needs a vibrant hue to spice things up. If you disagree though don't worry; Oroton also offers [...]
  11. Oryany Handbags Penelope Satchel | Practical Black Leather Purse - 2012-06-06 02:39:45-04
    It's got a prissy name, but the Penelope Satchel from Oryany Handbags is a casual number that's big on practicality. The Penelope is literally covered in pockets. There's one on the front, and one on each side, and that's all before we even unzip it! Once we do we're treated to even more of the secured [...]
  12. Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie Leather Clutch | Sleek But Soft Neon Orange Evening Bag - 2012-06-06 13:21:58-04
    Marc By Marc Jacobs is one of the most innovative and affordable lines around. Their sometimes preppy, sometimes punk take on Americana always looks clean and cool. This summery Katie clutch isn't the best the line has to offer, but it isn't the worst, either. I guess I've already insinuated that I have sort of a [...]
  13. Chloe Marcie Messenger Textured Leather Shoulder Bag | Vibrant Red Update To A Modern Classic - 2012-06-06 14:16:08-04
    Chloe's line of Marcie bags were and instant hit when they debuted a few years ago. I've always been a fan, but like so many fine things, they seem to be getting better with age. This new version for Spring 2012 is bright and iconic. This messenger version of the Marcie is a favorite of mine, [...]
  14. Purse Tails Raises Funds for Breast Cancer | New Pink Ribbon Products for a Cure - 2012-06-06 22:33:26-04
    Handbag hook firm Purse Tails is doing its bit for breast cancer research with the release of two new products. A portion of proceeds from the sales of the Clipa for a Cure purse hook and Pink Ribbon Keyfinder will be distributed between America's Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the United Kingdom's Breast Cancer Campaign. Ten [...]
  15. 3.1 Phillip Lim Lark Duffel Bag | Small Yellow Leather Handbag - 2012-06-06 23:55:19-04
    Punchy yellow pebbled leather helps this small Lark Duffel Bag from Phillip Lim make a big impression. I'm in love with that cheerful retro color that Phillip Lim calls limon. It's a bit paler than a neon, but it's still got that same citrusy appeal. By muting the hue Phillip Lim makes it really wearable, although [...]
  16. Bottega Veneta Releases PVC Cabats | Luxury Designer Label Weaves Plastic - 2012-06-07 00:36:30-04
    Bottega Veneta attempts to dress up polyvinyl chloride with its new PVC-Weave Cabat bags. These Cabats are similar to the leather and exotic ones that we're all familiar with, but instead of luxury materials Bottega Veneta's played with a synthetic skin. Why? Well why not? I didn't think even a high class label like Bottega Veneta could [...]
  17. Paco Mena Quemya Clutch | Boring Gray Satin Evening Purse - 2012-06-07 01:10:02-04
    We've been longtime admirers of Paco Mena's original and affordable evening accessories. But it looks like the label was running short on inspiration when it created the Quemya Clutch. The Quemya is nice enough, but it lacks that innovation we associate with the brand. We've seen its soft satiny base and kiss-lock closure so many times [...]
  18. Pacsafe Wristsafe 150 Wrist Wallet | Unusual Black Security Coin Purse - 2012-06-07 02:18:17-04
    Pacsafe offers an unusual alternative to a regular coin purse with its Wristsafe 150 Wrist Wallet. This quirky wallet puts an end to scrounging around inside your tote for loose change, as it wraps around your wrist. A concealed buckle keeps the adjustable wrist band securely in place. Breathable backing ensures it's comfortable to wear too, [...]
  19. Chinese Shoppers Reject Overexposed Designers | Louis Vuitton & Gucci on the Way Out - 2012-06-07 03:01:24-04
    Chinese shoppers are becoming more discerning and passing over Louis Vuitton and Gucci for labels they believe epitomize "absolute luxury." Critical Chinese shoppers suggest these labels are on the way out as they've become too commonplace. Instead cashed up customers are seeking out more exclusive accessories from Chanel, Hermes, and Bottega Veneta. "I have two Louis Vuitton [...]
  20. Paul Smith Formby Cross-Body Bag | Taupe Croc Embossed Leather Purse - 2012-06-07 04:11:43-04
    Paul Smith tones down his usual colourful aesthetic with this Formby cross-body bag. Gone are the familiar rainbow swirls, replaced with an almost gloomy taupe hue. The color was a shock at first, but I concede it's probably more wearable than the vibrant hues Paul Smith usually favors. The neutral leather is embossed with elegant crocodile [...]
  21. Rachel Zoe Names Morrison Bag After Son | Fall 2012 Handbag On Instagram - 2012-06-07 05:37:49-04
    Rachel Zoe has followed in Victoria Beckham's footsteps and named a handbag in her fall 2012 collection after her young son. Just as Beckham brought us the Harper, Zoe is preparing to release the Morrison, which shares the middle name of her one-year-old Skyler Morrison Berman. The Morrison will be available in two sizes: a medium [...]
  22. Pilar Abril Calathea Shoulder Bag | Striking Slashed Violet Leather Handbag - 2012-06-07 06:47:30-04
    Pilar Abril turns heads with this striking Calathea Shoulder Bag. I'm in love with this shoulder bag's unique textured finish. Pilar Abril has slashed and twisted its leather to create its scaly looking panel. Cleverly placed stitches keep the design looking its best without detracting from it. This three-dimensional surface looks modern but as it's so [...]
  23. Puma Ferrari Shopper | Chic Sports Car Inspired Day Bag - 2012-06-08 02:35:04-04
    Puma shows it knows about more than sports bags with this chic Ferrari Shopper. This handbag was created in conjunction with the sports car maker, and it seems some of its designer pedigree's rubbed off on the sports label. This is a much more sophisticated accessory than most in the Puma stable, with its clean curves [...]
  24. Ita Releases New Jewel Bags | Stylish Purses from Iranian Sisters - 2012-06-08 03:08:11-04
    Iranian born sisters Bita and Rouzita Vaggabaghai pay tribute to their Persian and American heritages with their new range of Ita handbags, dubbed the Jewel series. The handbags feature an unusual fusion of metals and high quality Italian leathers, which informs their structure and finish. The Jewel purses distinctive finish takes its cues from the world [...]
  25. Pour La Victoire Vivien Tote | Large Casual Black Leather Handbag - 2012-06-08 04:13:42-04
    Pour La Victoire serves up an everyday bag for the packrats with this Vivien tote. The size is worth mentioning straight up, as it seems to be a bone of contention for customers. Pour La Victoire lists it at 12 by 14.5 by 6 inches, but shoppers say it measures significantly larger than that, especially when [...]
  26. Chinese Shoppers Love Second-Hand Designer Goods | China's Changing Shopping Attitudes - 2012-06-08 05:36:17-04
    As shoppers everywhere tighten their belts, luxury loving Chinese customers are looking to second-hand stores to satisfy their desires for designer goods. Second-hand outlets including Hong Kong's Milan Station and Japan's Brand Off are popping up all over the Asian nation. These outlets offer a more refined shopping experience than pawnshops, although these are also still [...]
  27. Prada Torpedo Frame Sequin Clutch | Ombre Sequined Purse - 2012-06-08 06:47:55-04
    Prada puts some sparkle into your evenings with this Torpedo Frame Sequin Clutch. Such a glitzy number won't appeal to everyone, but I've fallen in love with this pretty Prada purse. Its pastel sequins create a gentle ombre effect which is just so striking. I'm not always a fan of bags covered in the flashy metal [...]
  28. Prezzo Present Box Wristlet | Cute Novelty Pink Gift Purse - 2012-06-09 02:12:36-04
    We've all heard of box purses, but purses that look like boxes? That's something you don't see every day! Prezzo embraces its silly side with this Present Box Wristlet. It really does look like a neatly wrapped gift, complete with a ribbon decoration! My feminine side can't resist this pretty powder pink version, but there's also [...]
  29. L.L. Bean's New Fenway Boat & Tote | Limited Edition Tarp Bag Celebrates Boston Red Sox - 2012-06-09 03:36:54-04
    L.L. Bean's new limited edition handbag pays tribute to its local baseball team the Red Sox and their home ground, Fenway Park. The Fenway Boat & Tote is crafted from the same tarpaulin that protected the baseball field from inclement weather during the 2010 and 2011 seasons. The release seems to have come from left field, [...]
  30. Proenza Schouler Tiki Clutch | Unusual Lime Colored Stingray Purse - 2012-06-09 04:30:03-04
    Proenza Schouler's a company with a clear creative vision, but there are only so many PS1s and PS11s a girl can see without becoming bored. So I was excited to see the label trying something new with the Tiki clutch. It doesn't measure up to those revered angular accessories, but at least it's fresh! The Tiki [...]
  31. Kenneth Cole Goes Private | Designer Spends on Company Shares - 2012-06-09 05:09:28-04
    It's been in the works for a few months, but it's now official. Kenneth Cole has bought enough shares in his namesake fashion house to take back control of the firm, making it a private corporation once again. The deal is estimated to be worth $245 million, and reportedly saw Cole paying $15.25 a share, up [...]
  32. Radley Mornington Large Tote | Striking Woven Leather Canvas Handbag - 2012-06-10 20:59:34-04
    Radley serves up a modern take on the classic woven basket with this Mornington tote. From a distance I thought the unusual yellow lines may have been printed onto this classic tote, but the Mornington is actually far more intricate than that. Radley's cleverly woven thin leather strips together and laid them over the top of [...]
  33. Topshop Makes Reclaim to Wear Collection | Eco-Friendly Backpack & Apparel - 2012-06-10 22:07:35-04
    A denim backpack is amongst the fashion offerings in Topshop's new eco-friendly Reclaim to Wear collection. The British fashion retailer teamed up with green label From Somewhere's eco-conscious Reclaim to Wear initiative to create the pieces entirely from discarded fabrics. Surplus stocks and production remnants were utilized to create the rucksack, some maxi-dresses, cheeky boy-shorts, lightweight [...]
  34. Rafe Sirene Minaudiere | Solid Shell Evening Purse - 2012-06-11 00:06:35-04
    If Chanel's Shell Clutch was too rich for your blood, perhaps the Sirene Minaudiere is more your speed. Considering the plain Chanel purse cost a hefty $33,000, this Rafe purse seems like a steal at only $395. The Sirene's shape isn't quite as elegant as the Chanel purse, but the difference certainly isn't worth the massive [...]
  35. Ethnotek's Modern Woven Handbags | Third-World Threads Decorate Practical Purses - 2012-06-11 00:40:35-04
    Ethnotek takes traditional handwoven textiles into the 21st century with its ethical handbag collection. At their heart, Ethnotek's messengers and backpacks are tough accessories crafted from ballistic nylon. They're made for the digital age with padded laptop compartments and plenty of practical, accessible pockets. But a removable handcrafted textile detail, called a Thread, helps make these [...]
  36. Ralph Lauren Hancock Satchel | Traditional Brown Nappa Leather Handbag - 2012-06-11 02:43:13-04
    Ralph Lauren celebrates classic design with this Hancock satchel. The Hancock isn't the kind of bag that will turn heads, but it'll serve you well for many years to come. Its high quality nappa leather is sophisticated and versatile in classic tan. The criss-crossing double buckle tabs at the side make the design feel a little [...]
