Video: Rebecca Minkoff's Fall 2010 Handbag Collection Preview

Chanel may have just raised prices on its already out-of-reach albeit iconic handbags, but young designer Rebecca Minkoff has announced that she is lowering prices on all her classics by about 15% for fall. Here, the designer shares details about her Fall 2010 Handbag Collection, which includes new styles such as the Beloved Mini, the 3-Zip Rocker and the Lust. I own two Minkoff bags now thanks to the great sales at Gilt Groupe and I love them to pieces. Chic and modern yet totally timeless, Minkoff's bags are worth saving for—and now, you won't have to save up quite as much to afford one!

Allen B. for JCPenney Fall 2010 Collection

Thanks to JCPenney, we've got the complete lookbook for the Allen B. Fall 2010 Collection, a trendy and fun collection of dresses and sportswear designed by LA-based Allen B. Schwartz, available this month. Some things we've seen before: Plaid, leggings, studs and zippers, boyfriend cardigans, black blazers and denim. Some things are new, like the denim harem pants, a trend I've spotted in a few places recently and don't plan to follow. Prices range from about $69.30 for a studded jacket to $15.40 for peek-a-boo leggings. I love the cowlneck sleeveless dress with ruffle ($49.99), dress with rhinestone embellished shoulder ($39.99), and navy/white stripe dress ($39.99) -- basically all the dresses! The jackets are pretty fab, too, I can imagine lots of ways to wear the hooded jacket or military jacket ($69.30 each). Click through to see all the looks. Which pieces stand out for you?
