Updated on October 4, 2013

My Top Ten Favorite Leather Handbags

Real leather handbags come in all sizes, shapes and colors. A leather purse or bag not only looks classy, but is durable, will take a beating and lasts for years. Purchasing real leather may cost a little more up front, but is a bargain in the long run. Invest in yourself by purchasing the real deal. You deserve it.


#1 - Bulga Panache Hobo

Fun mixed with quality. This bag is rich enough to dress up and trendy enough to dress down. It goes anywhere.

Wide, tiered flaps of rich leather add Panache to this fabulous convertible bag from Bulga. Keep it at full length and carry it from the ruched shoulder strap, or fold it over and grab it by the removable buckle-detailed handle. The main compartment has a magnetic snap closure, and the lined interior features a zippered pocket and two slip pockets
