Chloé Sally Chain-Strap Shoulder Bag in Grained Grey, Green or Natural Python Cream

I am not a fan of chain-strap purses, and yet, due to a little bit of simple innovation, I completely adore the Chloé Sally Shoulder Bag.

New Fendi Peek-A-Boo Satchel | Linen & Suede, Patent Leather or WaterSnake Skin

New Fendi Peek-A-Boo Satchel | Linen & Suede, Patent Leather or WaterSnake Skin

I am really disappointed that the eLUXURY store is closing its' retail operations later this year in June. I've been a customer for four years and have always been respectful of their keen fashion savvy-ness.

Coach Tattersall Domed Graffiti Satchel | Signature Metallic Trim Cream Designer Handbag

Coach Tattersall Domed Graffiti Satchel | Signature Metallic Trim Cream Designer Handbag

Uh oh! It appears that Coach, one of the most popular designer handbag brands, is heading down the same road that resulted in damaging Dooney & Bourke's designer brand into a glorified teeny bopper handbag label.

I was very impressed with the direction Coach had taken over the past couple of years ...

Louis Vuitton Galliera Riviera Canvas Bag | Artisitc Water Paint Tote

Louis Vuitton Galliera Riviera Canvas Bag | Artisitc Water Paint Tote

Here's a high-priced, kitschy bag for the upcoming holiday season. It's an over indulgent handbag from Louis Vuitton.

Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile & Mink Tote | Animal Fur Handbag

Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile & Mink Tote | Animal Fur Handbag

Over the Halloween holiday, I had the unfortunate task of dissing a Bottega Veneta handbag. As much as it pained me to criticize such an established purveyor of refined leather bags, it still needed to be done.

Marc Jacobs Casey Tote | Beige Double Quilted Large Leather Purse

Marc Jacobs Casey Tote | Beige Double Quilted Large Leather Purse

I've never been a huge fan of Marc Jacobs' "quilted" bag obsession (case in point - the 'Stam' bag, of which the non-quilted versions are my favorite). However, I can still appreciate an elegant, quilted bag when I see it.

The Casey Double Quilted Tote (shown in serene ...

Bottega Veneta Woven Boston Bag | Handbag Halloween! Good Bags Turn Bad

Tory Burch Copying Anya Hindmarch | Knock-off Handbags or Coincidence?

Let me begin this post by saying this: I am only suggesting that some Tory Burch bags are similar to some of Anya Hindmarch's designs.
