Handbag Stalking: The Coolest Bags From Real Girls In L.A.

What’s in a bag? For most women (and even some men), it can be a little home away from home. Cell phones, keys, IDs, a book or day-planner, lip glosses, granola bar, the remains of a beverage (or two!)…the list and contents are endless. But the bags themselves—those are the real treasure. Naturally, we wanted to hit the streets to find real locals putting their bags to good work, and the results are nothing short of inspirational. From where our readers got their super-rad satchels, to the absolute essentials that none of our subjects can leave home without, we’ve got the coolest handbags found right here in L.A. You may even want to add a few to your fall wish list (we did!).
