We know your secret indulgence. That thing you like to do at home when no one else is around. Curling up on the couch, with phone and credit card in hand, to flip the channel to the Home Shopping Network. (What did you think we were talking about?)

Get ready to tune in this Friday, June 27th to HSN’s ‘Today Special’ featuring CALLA Handbags, along with CALLA Designer Jenny Syquia and Founder Pamela Pekerman. For 10 hours at the top of each hour, Jenny and Pamela will discuss summer and early fall bag trends via CALLA must-haves, including the Concorde satchel ($49.90). “These handbags are so well-priced that everyone can afford a little bit of luxury,” says Jenny Syquia.

CALLA, which stands for Charm and Luck Los Angeles, is a diffusion line of charm and luck, which is way popular with the celebs, like Eva Longoria. Visit or to see more of the collection.
