Smart Buy - IIIBeCa by Joy Gryson Bags

In 2006, Joy Gryson started her line of sharp, urban-ready leather bags with signature details, most notably her woven leather panels. Most of America probably remembers the line from the Target collaboration she did in 2008, where she replicated the weaving to great success in PVC. Now, with the launch of her new IIIBeCa line of leather handbags, Joy Gryson is aiming for the highly underserved segment of shoppers who want quality at prices that won't bankrupt them. Starting at $98 for a small crossbody and topping out at $198 for a full-size tote, you could buy each of the four styles in the line for $642, less than the price of one of Alexander Wang's famed Marion bags. The hardest part is choosing from the range of beautifully saturated colors that the line comes in, from basics like tan, natural, and black, to street-style ready mustard, marine, and grass green. Bonus - the linings are removable knapsacks that snap into the bags. Check them out at iiibeca.com.
