They say diamonds are a girl's best friend. Well, I doubt you or I will ever come close to touching a diamond-encrusted bag, so we'll just have to settle for this super sexy one with brass studs. Cynthia Vincent's Studded Suede Pouchette has an oh-so-charming flower design on either a svelte black or brown suede body. It may not be blinged out (did I just say that?), but it sure will dress up any casual outfit and spice up any eveningwear in your closet. The Studded Suede Pouchette sells for just $110 at Neiman Marcus.

"The Yatta brand is fashion made with attitude" says Jeaneen Benson, who carefully hand-sews every single Yatta bag on her site. A graphic designer who lives in San Diego, Jeaneen found the market to be overflowing with talented designers and decided to make a go of it on her own. Hence, Yatta was born! Of all the interesting and quality work I saw on Yatta's site, my favorite is this adorable Paper Doll Clutch made with green wool and doll print cotton lining. The window cutout in the upper left corner totally makes the bag for me, but I could not buy the bag and not own the small folio wallet shown below. The clutch measures roughly 12 x 5 inches and sells for $35, while the wallet at 4 x 3 inches sells for $20. And if everything didn't already sound wonderful, here’s the kicker--Jeaneen is donating 10% of every sale to the Hurricane Katrina victims. We are so loving that!
You can direct your comments or questions about this and any Yatta design to Jeaneen over at the Purseuing Lounge.
