Big Buddha Patras Clutch | Convertible Orange Synthetic Purse

Big Buddha Patras Clutch | Convertible Orange Synthetic Purse

Big Buddha's created a clutch to take us from daytime errands to evenings out with the Patras.

The Patras has a fun casual look which will suit casual outings all year round. It's made of synthetic, as most Big Buddha bags are, but the material's much ...


BCBGeneration Milla Satchel | Stylish Pewter Synthetic Everyday Handbag

BCBGeneration Milla Satchel | Stylish Pewter Synthetic Everyday Handbag

Add some shine to your everyday with this Milla Satchel from BCBGeneration.

I haven't always warmed to metallic day bags, as they often appear too brash for daylight hours. But BCBGeneration hasn't done a bad job here. The finish has that unmistakable sheen, but BCBGeneration's given it a ...


Big Buddha Heidi Hobo | Laser Cut Olive Synthetic Handbag

Big Buddha Heidi Hobo | Laser Cut Olive Synthetic Handbag

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

That delicate laser-cutting really makes this bag shine. It's reminiscent of the hand tooling we see on so many Southern accessories, but the flowers and butterflies give it a 21st century makeover.

The elaborate ...


Hurley Arlington II Handbag | Convertible Navy Synthetic Shoulder Bag

Hurley Arlington II Handbag | Convertible Navy Synthetic Shoulder Bag

Hurley's given its Arlington a chic new look with the Arlington II.

The fabric makes all the difference here. The Arlington's first incarnation was made of wool trimmed with contrasting synthetic leather. The two-toned look was on trend but not as timeless as this ...


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.

I honestly ...


Ashley M Saucer Shaped Handbag | Quirky Brown Synthetic Leather Purse

Ashley M Saucer Shaped Handbag | Quirky Brown Synthetic Leather Purse

Ashley M's made a name for itself by taking risks. Often these fashion gambles result in kitschy accessories we'd never use, but occasionally the label's daring pays off. And then we get a bag like this Saucer Shaped Handbag.

I still don't expect this ...


Big Buddha Nadine Satchel | Woven Bronze Synthetic Handbag

Big Buddha Nadine Satchel | Woven Bronze Synthetic Handbag

Big Buddha delivers the elegance of woven weave for less with this Nadine satchel.

No one would suggest this bag's on a par with those created by Bottega Veneta or other high end fashion houses. Its synthetic isn't nearly as luxurious as the Italian leathers these ...


Vitalio Vera Danska Satchel | Affordable Teal Synthetic Carryall

Vitalio Vera Danska Satchel | Affordable Teal Synthetic Carryall

Vitalio Vera serves up a fun satchel for less with the Danska.

The Danska is far less flamboyant than many of Vitalio Vera's creations. Its soft elongated shape is traditional, and it's free of any real frills. I like the way the teal body contrasts with ...


SR Squared by Sondra Roberts Ring Toss Grommet Hobo | Overdone Synthetic Handbag

SR Squared by Sondra Roberts Ring Toss Grommet Hobo | Overdone Synthetic Handbag

Sondra Roberts overdoses on metal with this Ring Toss hobo.

I really like grommets as a more unusual alternative to studs, but like all accents I think they're best used sparingly. They're called accents for a reason, so they shouldn't dominate the design. But ...


Kathy Van Zeeland Flapper Chic Hobo | Snake Printed Synthetic Handbag

Kathy Van Zeeland Flapper Chic Hobo | Snake Printed Synthetic Handbag

Kathy Van Zeeland shows uncharacteristic restraint with its Flapper Chic hobo.

The name doesn't refer to the flapper style of the 1920s, but the hobo's classic flap closure. This curved element mimics the Flapper Chic's soft, voluminous shape. Pleats near the base ...
