Stylish Satchels for Spring!

What woman doesn't love a sleek, satchel-style handbag? The popular two-strapped purse is great for hand-held toting or as a casual shoulder bag (depending on the handle size). This season satchels are sprouting up in every shade and material to fit all tastes. From vibrantly colored patent leather to abstract-designed canvas, satchels are always a stylish and smart handbag staple.

BGG I love all purses! There is just no way to say that one is my favorite because it all depends on the outfit and the look I'm trying to achieve. I said all that to say these satchels are all fabulous! I really love the last one...the Tianni Abstract! So so cute!

Those are too nice! Although, I do not need another purse. For me it's the bigger the better.

@Jeanie - I CANNOT believe it snowed!! It was actually pretty nice here yesterday. I was able to wear a light-weight jacket. Today is is SUPER windy though.

Lately, I have been really feeling the big totes. I really like the red bag, but it's way too expensive. I couldn't imagine paying that much for a purse.

i like the messenger bag because it keeps my hangs free and i dont have to worry about it slipping off my shoulder.

Cute. Cute. Cute!

I love the red one and the shiny one. I go through quite a lot of bags because I lug a lot of stuff around such as magazines and books, make up bags etc. So I need a hefty yet stylish bag that can take the toll.

I love the yellow bag, but I'm a little afraid to go all out and get a bright color bag my boldest color is brown ;o(
