I guess you could say I've been just a little sidetracked with Chloe bags lately, but I can't help myself, I am so into this bag! The Chloe Paddington Large Padlock Satchel is absolutely gorgeous with its embellished golden hardware and studs, not to mention the signature padlock. The shoulder straps feature tabbed ring insets and is accented with a hanging key. With a front buckle-flat pocket and zip top buckled sides, this is a bag that I would probably sell my soul to own, really. Available from Bergdorf Goodman, the Large Paddington Satchel sells for $1,620, measures 9x14x6, and is available in tan, sunflower, or ivory leather. Don't forget, due to high demand you may order no more than three units of this item every thirty days. Darn...

With leather shoulder straps and signature logo plates, this humongous bag measures 9 1/4x18x8 1/2. It may be a bit too pricey, (and scary!) for my pocketbook, but this is still one hot bag!

Made of 100% PVC and trimmed in antiqued-brass hardware, the bag measures 18 x 10 x 4 inches and sells for a lovely $50!
The Cameron Large Satchel by BCBG Max has got to be one of the most unique not to mention classy bags I've seen in a while.

When I'm looking for something inexpensive to carry, Target always seems to come up with something.

The rose design gives it a victorian feel, but this little guy will go with just about anything, I'm sure. Measuring 10 x 15 x 5.5 inches, you can pick one up at Target for $23.

Ok, A) Who the H&!! is Gerard Darel? And B) Where the H&!! has he been all my life!? The Leather Flap Satchel shown here in brown, has buckled shoulder straps and an awesome drawstring top with a front flap. Also featuring a front zip pocket, the satchel from Gerard Darel measures 12 x 21 x 5 inches (note to self, that's a big, freaking bag!), sells for $635 and also comes in black.
Joy Gryson, a former Marc Jacobs design director, has ventured out on her own to bring us this delightful new line of handbags simply called Gryson. All of the bags in the line are absolutely to die for, although my favorite so far is the Seamed Satchel ($825) due to its extraordinary choice in accents such as the brass hardware and trigger lock. The online store also has all of the other five bags from the collection in stock in prices ranging from $695 for the Medium Leather Shoulder Bag to $995 for the Pocket Shoulder Bag (which has the definite look and feel of an upcoming "It" bag -- gonna make my Fall list for sure). From the looks of this collection, Gryson is off to a great start.

To me, there’s nothing like a nice, cheap AE bag to bring me back to reality after what seams like weeks of covering over-priced, over-exaggerated, and over-all unattainable handbags here on Purseuing. The American Eagle Linen Satchel is an adorable (and affordable I might add) cotton/linen blend bag that comes in both sandy shore (light khaki shown right) as well as bark (a darker brown), and has a long leather strap for easy carrying either over the shoulder or across the chest. The bag, which measures 16 x 13 inches, is lined in printed cotton and sells for $29. There's also a pretty cute little pink wallet available to match for $12. You can't beat that with a stick.

I've always had a thing for this bag, and now, since they've decided to make it pink, what I used to consider a little thing has suddenly turned into a much bigger thing! Adding a little extra pizzazz to the already glitzy appearance of the Studded Satchel, Be & D is really pouring on the glamour with it's new washed rose leather exterior. The bag also features cognac pebble-grain trim along with the usual square buckles and ID tag. In stock now at Neiman Marcus, the pink beauty sells for $895.

My God, I like this bag! Cole Haan is quickly making their way up on my list of favorite designers these days with bags like this, the Leather Tassel Satchel in dark brown. From the Sierra Collection, the satchel has antiqued brass hardware, gorgeous woven leather trim and is detailed in drawstring gussets and tassels. Measuring a large 10.5 x 16 x .5 inches, the bag closes with an extended top strap and buckle. The Leather Tassel Satchel from Cole Haan sells for $350 at Neiman Marcus and also comes in black nubuck as well.

Many versions of this bag are floating around out there, but the style shown here is by far my favorite. The Secret Love Satchel by Francesco Biasia is made with beautiful sand-colored leather and has a simple braided shoulder strap and nickel hardware. The bag, which measures 13 x 4 x 7 inches, features a flap closure, side pockets and a signature lining with zip pocket. The Secret Love Satchel is currently available at Pink Mascara for $278.

Well, hello there Cutie! New at eLuxury, Nanette Lepore's Safari Handbag is a casual, canvas satchel that’s laced with a charming cotton ribbon. Featuring a long shoulder strap detailed with round wood beads, the bag has topstitched seam detail, and a large flap closure. The interior has a satin-finished ribbed lining and includes a patch pocket and cell phone pouch. The Safari from Nanette Lepore measures 17 x 12 x 2 inches and sells for $240 at eLuxury. I dont' know about you, but that long beaded strap would look real good on my shoulder the day after Christmas. I wonder if Santa reads Purseuing?

Doesn't this bag just look like it would be fun to carry? Marc by Marc Jacobs Tooled Leather Satchel is made of soft, tooled leather and has a large flap buckled closure. The antiqued brass hardware make this bag seem classy, while the bold Marc beads attached to aged drawstring ties keep it light and interesting. The bag measures 15.5 x 9 x 5 inches and sells for $368 at eLuxury. Now, lets all thank Mr. Jacobs for the Marc by Marc Jacobs line. Or as I like to call it, the "Marc Jacobs for the poor folks" collection.
Comment on this bag
Neiman Marcus calls it "Riveting—a luxurious, limited-edition velvet satchel with eye-catching hardware" and we at Purseuing (wait a minute... it's just me, isn't it?) happily agree. In gorgeous azure velvet, the Be & D bag is trimed in cognac leather and accented in the usual golden hardware and stud detail. The Limited Edition Satchel ($795) is available for preorder now and expected to ship by 11/07/2005.
Comment on this bag
I know I say this sort of thing at least once a week, but I'm in love with this bag! Made of smooth, olive leather and brown trim, the Jennifer Pocket Satchel from Henry Beguelin is accented with golden hardware and stitched with cream threads. The bag has two flap pockets on the front and if you look really close between the pockets, you'll see a unique, hand-stitched stick figure. (Ok, so this picture makes it look more like a tiny white dot, but it's a charming little dot, isn't it?) Henry Beguelin's Jennifer Pocket Satchel is available for $1,450 at Neiman Marcus.

Apparently Coach was tired of being left out of the "ridiculously-expensive-handbag-designer" category and has decided to do something about it! At $1,900 (which gave heart attacks to Coach fans worldwide), the Python Small Pocket Satchel is made of blue python skin and leather trim. Other features of the bag include front and side turn lock closure pockets, an outside zip pouch and imported silk lining. I don't know about you guys, but my two thousand dollar, blue, reptile-skin handbag fund is unfortunately already overspent for this year. Tragic, but true.
Comment on this bag
For the most part, I view Be & D bags as being pretty overpriced and underachieving, and although I continue to see them as a little "not worth it", I can't deny my extreme attraction for this plush, velvety version of their Studded Satchel. Featuring brown velvet with leather trim, the Velvet Studded Satchel has golden hardware and is covered in Be & D's customary studs. You can pre-order the bag now for $795 at Bergdorf Goodman. It's expected to ship October 7th.
Comment on this bag
I saw this bag in person last weekend at the local AE and absolutely loved it! The Velvet Satchel is perfect for casual carrying with its 13 x 13 x 4 inch size and simple shape, yet shows some definite class with its soft velvet structure and brass detail. Featuring roomy interior pockets and print lining, the Velvet Satchel is made of 100 percent cotton and comes in olive, teal and red. AE sells it for $34.50.
In beautiful pewter metallic leather, Kenneth Cole's Hole Hearted Satchel is a large, slouchy bag with double round handles. The bag features antique gold tone hardware, protective bottom feet and closes with a magnetic snap. Measuring 14 x 5 x 7 inches, the Hole Hearted Satchel sells for $269 at Zappos and also comes in copper.
You cannot possibly consider yourself a handbag-enthusiast and not love this Small Zip Satchel from Cole Haan. As with all bags in the Stephanie Suede collection, the Small Satchel has a super-smooth suede exterior with pebble grain leather trim and scores a few bonus points for functionality with it's three-compartment design. The front pocket features gold, signature hardware and the interior sports a nylon lining. The Small Zip Satchel from Cole Haan is offered in milkshake (shown), hot chocolate, burnt orange and navy. It carries a $175 price tag.
So I went shopping this weekend (big shocker) and when I walked by the Coach store there was like this bright light that sort of drew me in like a magnet. The Soho Leather Framed Satchel features a large enamel buckle on the front and a rhinestone detailed velvet ribbon. In beautiful lightweight leather, the Bordeaux satchel has a decorative single hand-held strap and measures 8 x 6 x 4 inches and I want one horribly bad. Coach's Soho Leather Framed Satchel sells for $398 and also comes in black and white.
I'm never disappointed when Kate Spade announces new handbags and today's no exception to the rule. The Fulham Annemarie bag is a boxy satchel named after Fulham road, which largely contributed in the 1960's to London's fashion uprising. The bag features glazed patent calfskin with cowhide trim, and the signature larabee dot lining. The Fulham Annemarie from Kate Spade measures 5 x 8 x 3 inches and sells for $275.
After yesterday's rant about bunny-killing, let's get back to some good ol' slaughtering of reptiles, something we all seem to swallow easier. Dolce & Gabbana's Superstar Small Satchel is made of karung snakeskin and has beautiful gold hardware. Much of the bag utilizes the sleek look of karung such as the straps, the trim on the flap closure and even the gold-colored corner pieces of the bag. Dolce & Gabbana included metal feet on the bottom of the Superstar Satchel and they sell the bag for $1425. I'll admit, this purse is pretty swanky and you really area superstar if you can afford to carry it. (And when I say "superstar" what I really mean is "rich".) As for me personally, it's a little pricey for my taste. (And when I say "pricey" what I really mean is "I can’t afford it".)
New at Zappos, the Atomic Satchel from Guess is a brilliant mid-sized handbag fashioned with a twill, nylon materiel and metallic trim. The dual, rounded handles give the bag a framed structure while the body of the satchel remains light and slouchy. The Guess Atomic Satchel's logo-engraved hardware shines in stunning silver making this bag easy to convert from daytime to night-out wear without hesitation. The $80 purse measures 11 x 4 x 11 inches and also comes in black, milk and sand.
Neiman Marcus has announced new fall preview handbags from designers such as Chloe, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs and Bottega Veneta. Also named were some much- awaited, new Fendi bags including this gorgeous Zip Satchel in tan lambskin. The purse is accented with three golden signature Fendi buckles, including the one covering the extended tab closure. Double straps with inverted gussets finish off the bag and you can preorder the Fendi Zip Satchel for $1030. Neiman Marcus is expected to ship the bag on 10/7/2005.
Kate Spade's new summer 2005 handbags are to include this gorgeous Berkley Small Wynn made of cotton canvas and leather. The zip-top Wynn is a three-compartment satchel that contains dual hand-held straps for a fun and attractive shape. Inside, the new larabee dot print lines the bag, while grass (shown), rose and black leather trim accent the exterior. Kate Spades Berkley Small Wynn sells for $285.
New for summer, Coach is offering a modern take on the popular Signature fabric with their Signature Tie Dye series. In eight different styles, the Tie Dye bags feature a touch of sparkle making them sweet and summery in denim, white and pink. My favorite, the large Tie Dye Satchel, is trimmed in leather, patent leather and suede and lined in fabric. The two side pouches and multi-purpose pockets make this satchel not only cute but also functional and the bold metallic stripe adds instant contemporary charm. The new Coach Signature purses range from $98 to $378 for the Satchel shown here.liz-claiborne-on-the-go-satchel
Liz Claiborne has updated an already cute summer bag, adding some new sporty details, including striped trim and faux leather highlights. The On The Go Satchel has two large side and front zip pouches and the interior features dual pockets as well. Measuring 13 x 4 x 7 inches, the On The Go Satchel is made of 100 percent polyester and sells for $60 on Liz Claiborne's website. This bag reminds me that summer is just around the corner and I don't know about you, but I'm sooo ready.burberry-gold-metallic-leather-satchel
You know, I thought I was finally over the whole spring metallic fad but after seeing Burberry's Gold Metallic Leather Satchel, I realize that I'm not. Of all the metallic handbags I’ve witnessed this season, this one proudly sits at the top of the list, laughing at all the others for falling a bit short. The leather logo plate labels the beautiful bag with the esteemed "Burberry" name and is set in place with grommets. Dual shoulder straps are decorated with golden rings. The large satchel is 7 x 12 x 4 inches, and sells for $495. Yeah, I'm so not over it.kate-spade-coronado-kolby
New for summer from Kate Spade, the Coronado collection in bright, fresh hues and stripes makes my mouth water and my palms sweat. The Coronado Kolby (shown) is an unstructured, boxy satchel that closes with a top-flap. With leather trim and braided canvas handles, the bag comes in orange/pink along with the blue/green one shown. The $295 satchel is 7.8 x 11 x 7 inches but if that’s not big enough for you, you can instead purchase the Coronado Large Kolby for $345.ae-sun-washed-bag
Made of 100% cotton, the AE Sun-Washed Bag is soft and easygoing enough to carry with every casual outfit. The purse is accented in leather and lined in a girly, floral print.

The bag comes in both whisper (shown) and grenadine you can pick it up for $35 online or at your nearest AE.jones-new-york-marakesh-satchel
The Marakesh Satchel from Jones New York in pebbled leather is a must-have for spring. With double handles and a lavish gold-ring flap, this bag screams "expensive" without carrying the exorbitant price tag. The outside pockets have magnetic snap closure and the interior of the satchel includes a pouch and cell phone pocket. The Marekesh from Jones New York measures 15 x 7 x 5 inches and features a leather-framed mirror. Selling for $128, it comes in white and gold.prada-crocodile-buckle-satchel
Just in case you have an extra $11,350 you're not using, I thought I'd let you know about the Crocodile Buckle Satchel from Prada. Now unless you've been living in a cave for a while, you know that one of this seasons biggest trends are exotic bags. Whether it be python skin or crocodile leather, it seems we have a new-found infatuation with skinning scary reptiles and wearing them on our shoulders. Made with brown crocodile leather, this Prada beauty has silver metal hardware and buckles. The satchel closes with a top flap and measures 11 x 15 x 6 inches. You can pre-order the bag now from Neiman Marcus but there's no word yet on when it will ship. Ya know what? I wish I didn’t love this bag so much because I seriously hate how they kill crocodiles for their skin. It’s kind of like how I’m totally against butchering cows *as she chomps on her double cheeseburger*. Crap.etienne-aigner-sutton-place-small-satchel
You know what I always say: Mock croc is better than no croc at all. Etienne Aigner's Sutton Place Small Satchel in green crocodile embossed leather is a perfect alternative to the real thing. The pleated-style satchel includes a polished silver "A" hardware piece hanging from the dual straps and also has a removable shoulder strap. The bag comes in green (shown) along with black and berry and is on sale for $90 through eBags.guess-isola-satchel
The Isola Satchel from Guess is made of canvas and trimmed in mock croc and color contrast canvas. With metal stud accents, the purse has two front and side snap pockets and dual straps.

The $65 Isola measures 15 x 7 x 6 and comes in sandstone (pictured right).adrienne-vittadini-dumilla-straw-satchel
The Dumilla Straw Satchel from Adrienne Vittadini has black leather trim and contrast stitching. The bag closes with a magnetic flap and has a metal footed base so it stands up easy. Finishing off the classic straw satchel is matte silver hardware. The purse is available through Adrienne Vittadini's Website and sells for $125.mulit-flap-suede-satchel-marc-by-marc-jacobs
I don't know who this Marc Jacobs person is but I think I love him. Seriously, I would probably highlight a Marc by Marc Jacobs purse everyday if I didn't think that my readers would bore of it. Take this Multi-Flap Suede Satchel for example. There is no way in this world that I could resist mentioning this bag with its soft leather and suede exterior and cotton print lining. The satchel closes with a magnetic snap flap and measures 11 x 11 x 5 inches. Maybe if Marc knew I was in love with him he would let the $300 slide and just give me the bag for free.candies-candy-cord-gathered-satchel
If you're not already itching for spring to get here, this olive colored bag from Candies is sure to put you the mood. The Candy Cord Gathered Satchel is made of light fabric and synthetic trim. It comes complete with dual shoulder straps, silver buckles and stud detail. The side drawstrings make this bag seem new and fresh, yet the small cords make it classy enough that you wont feel 15 carrying it. The Satchel measures 10 x 4 x 5.5 inches and sells for $42.dior-detective-medium-bag
Christian Dior's new Detective bag is one of the new "it" purses of the season. The frame-shaped bag features a velvety smooth leather exterior with detailed topstitching and zip closure. Inside the purse is a satin-finished tan and white flower lining. I think what does it for me are the two snap pockets on the front with the dangling "C" and "D". And no ladies, that does not stand for "Card" "Declined", although at $1,650, the price of this bag might make you rethink your purchases for the rest of the month. In black, the Detective Bag makes me want to do some investigating to see if I can sell something to buy it.juicy-couture-leather-satchel
The LWL Leather Satchel from Juicy Couture is crafted with smooth leather and accented with gold links and a "J" heart charm that dangles from the handle. On the inside, the pockets read "Shop!" "Hello?" and "Juicy Kiss!". The canvas interior is stamped with the Juicy Couture logo and there's a mirror attached by a cord that reads "I am the fairest." Personally, I think there is a little too much reading involved with this bag but I find it charming despite how it makes my brain hurt. At $350, the satchel measures 15 x 6.5 x 11.5 inches.rafe-new-york=tuileries-pauline
This medium satchel from Rafe New York in signature rose print canvas is an absolute must have for spring. The bag has a zip-top closure, striped webbing straps that are rounded at the handles and antique brass engraved hardware. Inside the bag, there's a place for your cell phone and a pocket for a PDA or iPod. The satchel from Rafe New York measures 13 x 5 x 8.5 inches and is on sale now for $148. Now don't get me wrong, I love this bag, but there’s just something about it that screams "Bowling Bag" to me. However, after thinking about it long and hard I decided I'm okay with that.kate-spade-bexley-maddox
Is it legal to marry a handbag? If it were, I would sooo be willing to spend the rest of my life with this bag and forget all about men and children and such. Just me and my Bexley Maddox from Kate Spade in ocean green. I'm pretty much in love with this satchel. All the bags in the Bexley line are made of textured, tumbled leather and have light gold pyramid-shaped turnlocks. The Maddox satchel has dual shoulder straps, an interior zip pocket and a double slide pocket. The beautiful bag is lined with the new signature larabee dot pattern and sells for $475. I'll have to double check about that whole marrying-a-handbag business. I'll get back to you.
Also, consider getting one of the matching wallets from the Bexley collection since you and your purse won't be able to have babies and all.coach-signature-flap-satchel
Expensive designer purses are like men. When you find the one you want, you will pass on a lot of other cool stuff to get it. The $328 Coach Mini Signature Flap Satchel is "the one" for me, and I plan on buying it even if I have to pass on other cool things such as food and shelter to get it. The bag is made of the Mini Signature jacquard fabric with suede trim and fabric lining. The inside of the satchel has a pocket for a cell phone and the nickel feet protect the bag from getting scratched. I personally like the white with brown accents shown to the right, but the Flap Satchel also comes in pink, khaki, black and turquoise.gap-pinstripe-satchel
You can always count on Gap to offer cute purses at reasonable prices. After looking at hundreds of $200+ bags every day, it's like a breath of fresh air to see the Pinstripe Satchel. It's made of cotton twill and comes in neutral stripe and grey stripe. The main compartment has a zipper closure and it comes with front button pockets. The satchel is pretty large at 14 x 10 x 3 inches and is on sale for $30. You might also like the Pinstripe Mini Hobo and the Pinstripe tote.dooney-bourke-tapestry
Dooney and Bourke is now offering 11 new bags as part of its new Tapestry Collection. Most of the bags are the same styles that we're used to seeing from Dooney such as bucket bags, satchels and totes, but now with the new tapestry materiel. Each bag comes in nine different colors including mint, lavender and light blue. Shown to the right is the Small Soft Satchel in sunflower, my personal fav. The prices on the Tapestry Collection range from $135 to $195 depending on style.guess-satchel
Does anyone know what the heck happened to Guess in the last five years? This is the first bag that I have liked from them in a long time. This purse has satchel straps, buckles, metal ring accents, and is made of pink shiny mock-crock materiel. What more could we ask for? Plus it is reasonably priced at $70. Purse measures 14 x 7 x 4 inches.
