Big Buddha Heidi Hobo | Laser Cut Olive Synthetic Handbag

An intricate laser-cut finish gives Big Buddha's slouchy Heidi hobo some rodeo flair.

The elaborate ...


Jessica Simpson Rap Star Tote | Croc Accented Synthetic Handbag

Jessica Simpson Rap Star Tote | Croc Accented Synthetic Handbag

Jessica Simpson might know a thing or two about creating a pop hit, but rap seems a little out of her comfort zone. So it's little surprise that I can't imagine Nicki Minaj or Missy Elliott ever carrying her Rap Star tote.

Vieta Terra Hobo | Feminine Leatherette Lace Bow Bag

Vieta Terra Hobo | Feminine Leatherette Lace Bow Bag

Vieta gets girly with its Terra Hobo.

The label's used leatherette to create a striking lacey finish. It's such a clever way to use the material. The lace treatment makes the surface seem much richer than a regular leatherette bag. The synthetic is also much stronger than any ...

Tano Miss Marvelous Hobo | Brown Leather Carry-All Bag

Tano Miss Marvelous Hobo | Brown Leather Carry-All Bag

Its name should attract interest, but it turn out that the Miss Marvelous is just another average bag from Tano.

Sherpani Lucky Wallet | Large Purple Eco-Nylon Purse

Sherpani Lucky Wallet | Large Purple Eco-Nylon Purse

It's smaller than the label's day bags, but Sherpani shows it still likes to live large with this Lucky Wallet.

Laurel & Sunset Dunsmouth Hobo | Smelly & Confused Pleated Purse

Laurel & Sunset Dunsmouth Hobo | Smelly & Confused Pleated Purse

If a retro shoulder bag hooked up with a piece of carry-on luggage they might give birth to something like Hayden-Harnett's Nackie Satchel.

Gustto Pama Shoulder Bag | Studded Brown Leather Carryall

Gustto Pama Shoulder Bag | Studded Brown Leather Carryall

A smattering of studs helps this Pama Shoulder Bag from Gustto shine.

Ellington Bella Tote | Blue Leather Carryall with Contrasting Trim

Ellington Bella Tote | Blue Leather Carryall with Contrasting Trim

You don't need to be fluent in Italian to know that bella means beautiful. While this Bella tote from Ellington has some elements that fit that adjective, it seems the label may be too confident in its design abilities.

Elaine Turner Victoria Crocodile Printed Wallet | Brown Exotic Patterned Purse
