Marc Jacobs has been pushing his handbag line hoping to make it a great contender with the already popular designer handbags out there. As prices increase, Marc Jacobs is pushing his collection to go up against the on-top and expensive handbags in the fashion industry. The Marc Jacobs Hutton Clutch features black woven leather, reminiscent of Bottega Veneta yet not as intricate or delicate, along with a contrast flap over top.

Are you ga-ga for green or is this green handbag gross? The Chloe Audra Patent Satchel is designed with shocking green patent leather and is finished off with silvertone hardware. Contrasting trim adds a dimension to the bag, as does the front pocket with turn-lock closure. There are double top shoulder straps with an 8″ drop. On the inside, like many Chloe bags, there is canvas lining and a zip pocket.
Has the Spy phenomenon been completely worn out? While not personally a fan of the Zucca jacquard print, the compact Spy has been brought to life in the Fendi Zucca Spy Pochette. The leather trim offsets the print along with polished gold metal hardware. The ostrich-printed leather shoulder strap and front flap detailing add dimension. An interior patch pocket finishes off the pochette.
Eye-catching red stamped patent leather is accented with gold hardware on the Vivienne Westwood Red Label Bowling Bag. This handbag is a hand-held bowling bag and touts an oversized orb logo on the front. A zip fastening across the top, zipped pocket on the inside, and orb embossed lining finish off the bag. Does the red patent leather with gold hardware work for you?
An array of warm colors combine in this satin clutch to make perfect combination for fall.

Again with my being tardy, I am sorry. A brunch date turned into a brunch/talk/shopping date with one of my friends. But she was asking me about buying a white handbag with a little extra flair. I told her I’d look for something, and then wham, I saw this bag from Celine. The Celine Embroidered Leather Bag is designed with nude soft leather and tonal stitched chain link embroidery and silver hardware.
Prada hit huge with their Gauffre bags last season, and are trying to go big again with fading colors this season. But is the fade going to make a huge comeback? The Prada Ombre Patent Leather Tote is offered in a red version, that fades from black to red to white, and a black version that fades from black to gray to white.
The next best thing to having a crocodile bag, is looking like you have a crocodile bag. Miu Miu is keeping on their toes by designing an embossed crocodile bag that is much more affordable and looks ultra chic. The Miu Miu Crocodile Embossed Patent Satchel is available in either luscious moror dark brown or creamy talco ivory. The hardware is goldtone which adds a classy appeal.
The petrol (blue-gray) color used for this leather hobo bag is stunning. It is a toned down blue, which makes it easy to wear often. But the two turnlock fastening pockets on the front of the Marc by Marc Jacobs Faridah Hobo Bag resemble the backside of someone wearing jeans, which is a negative attribute in a handbag. The hobo shape adds a slouchy feel and there is a zip fastening pocket at the top, one shoulder strap, brass hardware, and canvas lining.
Luella bags have not been spoken about recently on the site, but there is a new season bag that needs to be deemed fab or drab from the house of Luella. The Luella Large Beanie Bowling Bag sports black leather along with ponyskin. On the front, two large tassels and a zip fastening can be found. Are you a fan of the tassels or are they too much for you?
