I know it’s old news that Nicole Richie has transformed herself from Paris Hilton’s snotty reality TV sidekick to a respectable mom with a very chic contemporary clothing line, but every time I hear something about House of Harlow, I can’t help but reflect on how far Richie has come. And now that House of Harlow has announced that it will expand into handbags for Fall 2011, I’ll probably be having those thoughts a lot more.

Women’s Wear Daily reports that the 14-piece collection will run the gamut of bag sizes from clutches (some seen above) to hobos, with prices ranging for $150 to $625. It’s surprising that it took the label this long to move into bags; Richie is known for her accessories, after all. Based on the clutches above, do you think you’ll be moved to buy a House of Harlow bag? They’ll be available through Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom and ShopBop.com.

    I like them all but can’t believe that her pieces automatically gets carried by higher-end department stores.

    I am loving the hexagonal clutch! I actually saw some of the pieces on Nicole’s site and while most of them were not for me (too boho for my taste), the clutches were all lovely.

    And yes, I love Nicole now. I couldn’t stand her and Paris during the pre-rehab The Simple Life days. It’s amazing how she turned her life around. She and Joel Madden seem like wonderful parents and so obviously adore each other. They seem like such a happy, loving family. The kids are adorable too! Yey for Nicole!

    haha it’s ok, I totally always reflect on her progress whenever I see some news about her. She has become such a role model to show how people can change for the better. If her bags are as great as her accessories, then I will definitely be interested.

    I love Nicole Richie, but I probably wouldn’t buy a bag based on these pictures. I would have preferred to see an everyday bag.
