1.Dagne Dover designs the kind of structured purses that make you seem extremely professional and put together — even if, no offense, you are not exactly the poster child for "put together". I'm with you on that, I promise.
2.Your bank account is already weeping tears of joy with the selection at H&M. Trendy purses + budget-friendly prices = a blissfully happy me.
3.ModCloth is paradise for anyone who swears — SWEARS! — that they were born in the wrong decade. They have all the vintage-inspired messenger bags and I-found-this-in-a-thrift-store-NOT purses you could want.
4.Charles & Keith take classic styles and gives 'em an unexpected twist. That mauve-colored bucket bag on the right, for example, is topped with a velvet bow.
5.Head on over to
Nordstrom for a range of gorgeous styles, designers, and price points. This is a go-to place for when you need a new purse, but aren't sure what KIND you want.
6.J. Crew exudes that Spencer Hastings, "I own several crisp button-down shirts" kind of sophistication. Picture classic structures mixed with trendy, you-can-still-wear-it-with-anything prints.
7.Read reviews (AKA my life savers) on Amazon to help you decide which purse best suits your needs. Your purses. Plural. You can never have too many handbags, am I right?
8.Calling all straw bag connoisseurs! Kayu creates ethically-made, handcrafted straw clutches and totes with natural materials you can feel good about.

11.TJ Maxx (my heart and soul) lets you unearth designer brand finds at a fraction of the original price. #maxxinistaforlife
12.Longchamp Paris is best known for their Le Pliage tote — a lightweight bag capable of holding your entire life inside. Seriously, it's deceiving just how much it can fit.
13.The quilted crossbodies and suede hobo bags at Rebecca Minkoff have stolen my heart (THE THIEVERY). Will they steal yours too? Probably. You won't be able to deny such beauty.
14.Urban Outfitters carries everything from reversible totes (YES, THAT TOTE BAG ON THE LEFT IS REVERSIBLE) and crossbody bags to dainty purses and fanny packs. I wish you luck as you attempt to choose just one.

18.The light of my life, AKA Target, shouldn't only be praised for it's amazing dollar section: their purses deserve a darn round of APPLAUSE.
19.If luxury vintage is your cup of tea, prepare to drool over everything that What Goes Around Comes Around has to offer. Chanel, YSL, Céline, Louis Vuitton, Hermès *takes deep breath* Fendi, Gucci...you get it.
20.Prefer beaded clutches and embellished weekender bags to little black purses? Then Anthropologie, Ms. Lizzie McGuire, is what dreams are made of. From an accessories perspective, of course.
21.Direct-to-consumer company Everlane creates designed-to-last leather pieces without marking 'em up too much in price. For example, their foldover crossbody costs $150. Traditional retail cost? $325.
