No matter your budget, be it thrift store or designer, fashionable finds need not be out of reach. So, we're bringing you the cream of the crop in trending buys — and in price ranges to suit every girl's wallet.
A notebook, a random assortment of pens, gum, Advil, spare contact lenses, bobby pins, iPad, MetroCard, coin pouch — and that's just a speckling of items commonly found in our bags. And, we're guessing that, like us, you've got tons of junk cramped into your work purse, too. Hey, a girl's got to be prepared for whatever comes her way! But, in addition to durability and functionality, we also want our carryall to feel as stylish as we are, even if it's just going to sit under our desk all day.
So, we've taken the liberty of rounding up 20 fashionable totes, satchels, and shoppers — including both designer splurges and plenty of under-$100 buys — that'll seamlessly integrate into your 9-to-5 wear (and even your weekend schedule). Make the most of your Sunday night, and invest in some enviable arm candy to take you through the workweek. Your new bag buddies, right this way!
