Leopard print has obviously been around forever and the trend has been building for some time, but as far as handbags go, the look is about to reach critical mass. Since some people are apprehensive of the pattern and unsure of how it could fit into their wardrobes, we’ve taken the liberty of styling the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Charles Leopard Print Bag for both night and day to demonstrate leopard’s versatility.

This bag is particularly appropriate because of its petite size and mix of hardware – it can be paired with silver or gold and used night or day. Leopard provides an interesting opportunity to create visual interest through mixing textures because multiple attention-grabbing colors would compete with the pattern, and I particularly love how it looks with dark pinks and metallic touches. Details for each piece are after the jump. (more…)

Joe's Jeans Side Ring Pieced HoboWait, wait, wait. Let me grab my glasses real quick, because I think I’m seeing this incorrectly. This can’t possibly be right. The Joe’s Jeans Side Ring Pieced Hobo can’t possibly retail for $148. It’s made by a well-known clothing brand, albeit one not known for bags, and normally name alone with guarantee a price tag with an extra couple hundred bucks tacked onto it. It’s made entirely of leather, and the leather looks like it’s actually pretty nice.

It’s not teeny tiny, either – Nordstrom calls it “medium,” and it looks like it would fit easily on your shoulder and hold whatever you need for the average day. The straps also look potentially comfortable to wear since they’re broad and flat. So it’s a brand-name leather bag that looks both functional and stylish and would be useful as a day-to-day purse, and it’s well under $200 without being on sale. Have I fallen into an alternate dimension? Am I Alice, and this is Wonderland? I’m not sure. And I don’t like brown, so I probably won’t buy one of these myself, but I’m encouraged by what Joe’s Jeans is attempting to do with their pricing. Buy through Nordstrom for $148.
