Trend Spotting: 3 Rock Icon Inspired Purses for Under $100

Written by Ashley

3 bags inspired by 3 of Rock & Roll’s most inspiring leading ladies.

This summer, it’s all about the rock chick. While leather jackets & combat boot occasions come few & far between in my day to day, I’ve been reaching for accessories to heighten my bad-ass status, without splurging over $100.

An ode to Joan Jett: The perfect mix between rockin’ leather tough-girl status and lady-like poise, the Moto Crossbody by Danielle Nicole is a refreshing intro in to the world of transitional purses, appropriate for day and oh-so necessary for night, measuring a perfect 11″(ish) x 9″ with an 18 1/4″ femme cross body chain.  Not too big, not too small, and available in olive & brown.  [ $98]

An ode to Debbie Harry: This adorable coin-purse will keep you organized, and the cherry-red patent leather won’t ever get lost in your abyss of a purse. [ $85]

An ode to Janis Jopin: Fringe appeal, feathers, hand-painted black leather with non-toxic ink. Hot with a pair of cut-offs and your fav band tee. [$68]
