    How much was the purse the clerk showed Oprah? $1,000 or $25,000? If $1,000 then you could buythe arguement that the clerk didn't want to show the purse because she didn't think the customer could afford it. If it was a very expensive purse Ianthe $25,000+ Opeah's argument falls apart. By appearence only if you can afford a $25,000 purse you probably can afford the $38,000 one. If I go to a store to buy something and the clerk shows me something identical which costs a lot less I appreciate it. If they are close I'll evaluate the difference and...

    Rhonda Hight was at a gun show with her husband but she wasn’t looking for a gun, she was looking for a purse to carry one in. “All they had was these little type, cheap bags that didn’t have any design or anything like that” she told KRMG news. That made Rhonda think about a way to start a business and fill a need all at the same time. After a little checking around she found a line of bags and began talking to them “I started giving them some feedback on what they don’t have” she said. That led...

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A teenage girl's sense of style got her in trouble at the airport. Vanessa Gibbs, 17, claims the Transportation Security Administration stopped her at the security gate because of the design of a gun on her handbag. Gibbs said she had no problem going through security at Jacksonville International Airport, but rather, when she headed home from Virginia. "It's my style, it's camouflage, it has an old western gun on it," Gibbs said. But her preference for the pistol style didn't sit well with TSA agents at the Norfolk airport. Gibbs said she was headed back home...

One of the churches hit by the thief is Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in northwest Houston, say police. But it's the video from another church that investigators want you to watch closely. Sheriff's deputies believe she has targeted victims across the city and as far away as Galveston -- and in a place those victim's least expected it. Cynthia Gonzalez, 43, also known as...

    Is First Lady Michelle Obama sporting a taste for ultra-expensive fashion pieces, or is she cementing her status as a savvy shopper? Back in April she wore a pair of $540 Lanvin sneakers at a Washington food bank. Earlier this week (while strolling the wooded landscape outside of Moscow), she carried a sexy black clutch, which Italian luxury house VBH boasts is their shiny black alligator manila bag – with a retail sticker price of $5,950. The White House flatly denies that Obama bought such a high-priced accessory, and says that she was carrying a patent clutch that retails for...

    CEDAR LAKE, Ind. (CBS) ― An Indiana high school is making a bold move to create a safer environment for students -- they've banned students from carrying bags including purses, during the school day. Female students are upset about the changes. CBS 2 Northwest Indiana Bureau Chief Pamela Jones reports the principal and district administration of Hanover Central School in Cedar Lake would not discuss the matter. But parents say the bag ban has actually part of the policy here for about three years. It's just being enforced now. Students are buzzing about a rule at the school that bans...

At that point, the officer intervened, made them both sit on the curb, and then took the woman into custody. Apparently, the couple, who live together in Paramount, had...

    There is a growing trend in men's fashion, the handbag. It goes by many names: the man-bag, the murse. It is a cross between a backpack and a briefcase that looks very much like a pocketbook. They have been big in Europe for quite some time. Who can forget Jerry Seinfeld's exclamation, "It's European." But now, it is coming to America. Why? Because in these teched-out, decked-out times, American men need to put all that stuff somewhere. Guys have their cell phones, BlackBerries, wallets, checkbooks, sunglasses, body spray, you name it. And the 21st century guy wants to put it...
  • Faithful Fashionistas Bust Out the Bible Bag

    NEW YORK — This purse gives a whole new meaning to wearing your Sunday best. New York designer Femme Sud, maker of the new leather Bible clutch, has found that coveting thy neighbor’s handbag isn’t always a bad thing — especially when said handbag sells for $495. Each book-shaped Bible bag is nearly twice the size of a standard-issue Gideon Good Book and comes with vamp-red lipstick and a coin purse that says “Pennies from Heaven,” the New York Post reports. But why sport a fashion statement of biblical proportions? Apparently, it’s a sure-fire way to attract attention from the...
