Soapbox Katie Cross-Body Bag | Affordable Black Croc-Embossed Handbag

Soapbox Katie Cross-Body Bag | Affordable Black Croc-Embossed Handbag

We can't all splash out on designer label accessories, so budget bags have an important space in the fashion landscape. But I still expect these affordable options to deport themselves with a sense of style. So it's disappointing to come across a bag like Soapbox's ...


Etienne Aigner Tiffany Tote | Brown Croc-Embossed Leather Handbag

Etienne Aigner Tiffany Tote | Brown Croc-Embossed Leather Handbag

Etienne Aigner gives the classic tote a hint of luxury with the Tiffany.

The conservative label's taken a traditional box shape and made it feel a little richer with some convincing crocodile embossing. The scales really are well done, which makes me wonder why I'm less ...


Brahmin Mia Mini Bag | Small Croc-Embossed Leather Purse

Brahmin Mia Mini Bag | Small Croc-Embossed Leather Purse

Brahmin gives us all the features we love in a tote bag in miniature form with this Mia Mini Bag.

Before you get up in arms about the material, the Mia's made of croc-embossed leather rather than authentic crocodile. I won't get into the ethics of killing cows ...


Soapbox The Nell Satchel | Affordable Blue Croc-Embossed Synthetic Practical Purse

Soapbox The Nell Satchel | Affordable Blue Croc-Embossed Synthetic Practical Purse

I've long been admirer of Soapbox's quirky retro styles, so I was disappointed to see the label take a turn for the ordinary with The Nell satchel.

From the outside there's really not much that we haven't seen before. The crocodile embossing seems like a halfhearted ...


Francesco Biasia Edith Tote | Oversized Croc-Embossed Suede Handbag

Francesco Biasia Edith Tote | Oversized Croc-Embossed Suede Handbag

Francesco Biasia has gone large with this Edith tote bag.

The Edith is enormous, with almost enough space to carry everything you want, everything you think you might need, and then the kitchen sink. The pair of open pockets and zippered pouch are a bit inadequate ...


Tignanello Safari Cross-Body Bag | Croc-Embossed Red Leather Purse

Tignanello Safari Cross-Body Bag | Croc-Embossed Red Leather Purse

Tignanello has looked to the wilds of Africa for inspiration with this cross-body Safari bag.

The purse gets its name from the leather's embossed finish, which resembles crocodile scales. We've all seen this kind of texture before, but I'm a bit torn about the effect here. ...


Tory Burch Mclane Zip Tote | Oversized Gray Croc-Embossed Carryall

Tory Burch Mclane Zip Tote | Oversized Gray Croc-Embossed Carryall

Tory Burch is the queen of upper crust fashion. She's got her pulse on all the poshest bastions of conservative style, most notably Palm Beach and the Upper East Side. If you're in Miami, you can hardly walk a step in Bal Harbor without a pair of Tory Burch styles. It's classic, ...


BCBG Max Azria Femme Fatale Satchel | Medium Brown Croc-Embossed Leather Handbag

BCBG Max Azria Femme Fatale Satchel | Medium Brown Croc-Embossed Leather Handbag

I'm not sure this BCBG Max Azria satchel has quite the mystery that its name suggests, but there's certainly a seductive quality about the Femme Fatale.

The satchel's cool, clean lines are classic, but the deep curved seams give the Femme Fatale ...


Jessica Simpson Vapor Tote | Roomy Croc-Embossed Synthetic Handbag

Jessica Simpson Vapor Tote | Roomy Croc-Embossed Synthetic Handbag

There's a space in every wardrobe for a classic exotic handbag, but unfortunately there's not always the space in our budgets for such an extravagance. Jessica Simpson offers us the next best thing with this Vapor tote.

One look at the price tag should probably tip you off; this isn't an authentic ...


Jesselli Couture Brenda Satchel | Croc-Embossed Studded Edgy Handbag

Jesselli Couture Brenda Satchel | Croc-Embossed Studded Edgy Handbag

I'm not sure whether Jesselli Couture was inspired by Shannen Doherty's Beverly Hills 90210 bad girl, but there's definitely a bit of Brenda Walsh in this Brenda Satchel from Jesselli Couture.

This is one edgy satchel, from its crocodile embossed black leather to its extra-long zipper pulls. It's a cool customer, and ...
