This holiday season, J.McLaughlin, is offering a line of handbags that will work for any holiday plans you might have on your calendar.
"We took a little liberty with our holiday 2010 collection," explains Kevin McLaughlin, Creative Director at the Manhattan-based fashion house that is known for its classic American designs. "Party dresses---usually the main event---are just the appetizers."
This season, J.McLaughlin created a slouchy leather hobo bag (see image in gallery) that is luxurious and comes in great colors for the fall and winter. The exterior has an open front pocket. Inside, there is a back wall zip. A key fob is attached inside, which will make it easier for you to find your keys. Dimensions are 16" wide X 12" high; 9" deep at widest point.
