Mission: Leather Bag

I was e-emergencied from my dear friend, New York City Mouse (NYCM):

"Help! My boss insists we pick out our own x-mas presents which is probably a great thing but... I want a cute medium-sized leather handbag, just big enough for a hardcover book and a lipstick, in the $100-200 range. Do you know any good brands/online stores/bags? Pleeeese?"

This is a little harder than I thought...as the market is flooded with metalic, studded, western bags. It's on my list of things to design, but in the meantime...(and some of 'em aint leather)
