You don't have to save the Christian
Louboutin for your feet. This darling Cadeau Bow Kiss-Lock Clutch
boasts a tiny pair of sparkling, sky-high, red-soled pumps right on
top of its kiss-lock closure. It's a whimsical touch, one that gives this
exquisitive deep blue velvet purse a city girl edge. It's a little
bit art deco, a little bit "Age of Innocence," and a little bit
Carrie Bradshaw. ($945 at Neiman Marcus)

Carlos Falchi is a master leather smith and purveyor of classic, yet modern handbags and accessories. He is following in the fashionable footsteps of past handbag designers and collaborating with Target. Target knows it's possible to find hot handbags under $100 and the retail giant mega-store has tapped Carlos Falchi for its next handbag designer collaboration.
If you know Carlos, you're familiar with his signature faux and real snakeskin handbags retailing upwards of $400. Falchi's glazed-crocodile Doctor bag sells for about $4,995. This fall you can get your hands on a Carlos Falchi design without spending a month's rent. You can nab the same decadent limited-time only accessories at most Target stores from October 11, 2009, to December 27, 2009. Falchi's budget-friendly collection will consist of 13 faux snakeskin bags in juicy jewel tones, such as plum and teal, along with a couple of collage and patchwork styles.
Falchi's famous fans include the late Jackie O, Tina Turner, Madonna, Cher and Sienna Miller, just to name a few.
During the Fall 2009 fashion shows, models blazed down the runway in a rainbow of neon shades at Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, but it's the pink-highlighter hue that works on all skin tones. If you don't want to splurge on a hot-pink coat or dress, one or two acid-bright accessories work just fine. With a color this vibrant, a little dab will do. The sweet-as-candy color gets a neon makeover and a perfect accessory is Jessica Bennett's simply sexy dinner party purse in hot pink.
The patent leather is simple but packs a big punch with its high sheen. The square shape with sexy curved corners lets this flirtatious handbag easily transform into cute and casual day wear but the graphic, retro-style gold hardware means it looks good enough for a party.
With a hot pink outer and contrasting lemony gold satin-style lining, you are bound to
look great and make a high impact with this adorable purse.
