    1. A handbag with three compartments and a floral embossed pattern that’ll be just so bloomin' awesome.

    The bag includes a removable shoulder strap. 

    Promising review: "It holds a ton of goodies inside and still closes properly. I like the option of the short handles as well as the adjustable shoulder/cross-body strap. You don't need to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to have a wonderful, beautiful, and awesome bag. And at this price point, I don't feel like I have to carry it every day for the next five years to get my money's worth out of it." —Monstertruckfan

    Price: $61.90

    2. A spacious carryall large enough to fit a 15" laptop with room to spare, packed with various compartments to keep miscellaneous items in order.

    Promising review: "After doing quite a bit of research for a new day bag for work and travel, I settled on this Kattee leather bag, and I'm glad I did. It's the perfect size and has a great selection of different-sized pockets. It's super stylish and classy. I fly often for work and it's ideal for travel. You can't go wrong with a solid leather bag at this price." —Meg

    Price: $79.99+ (available in two sizes and five colors)

    3. A small duffel bag that's big enough to hold an iPhone Plus, a large wallet, an umbrella, and other small accessories.

    Promising review: "Wow! Very well-made bag, beautiful leather, and vibrant color. The attention to detail is impressive at this price point. I love that it doesn't have a maker's mark or label other than the removable key chain." —Sunshine

    Price: $39

    4. A quilted backpack with a zipper closure, interior cellphone pocket, and small side zipper pocket, guaranteed to be an attractive (and comfy) alternative to your favorite purse.

    Promising review: "This is an awesome backpack. It's the perfect size for daily use. It's big enough for a book or two, a water bottle, and a sweater. Best of all, it has tons of pockets. The material is thick and durable — very well made. This is not going to be big enough for a school backpack, but it works great to use instead of a purse." —Monica

    Price: $69.98 (available in black and red)

    5. A classic cross-body bag that works with any look and features an adjustable strap, two interior slip pockets, and zipper closure.

    Promising review: "I don't usually write reviews, but I am so happy with this purchase that I wanted to share. This bag ticks all the right boxes — it's a true medium-sized bag; I can carry my essentials comfortably, plus a book or iPad. The back pocket is perfect for keys and my phone. The brown leather is beautiful, and the cross-body strap is the perfect width and doesn't dig into my shoulders like a lot of other bags do. I'm already thinking about which color to get next." —Johanna

    Price: $150.99+ (available in three colors)

    6. A vintage-style satchel designed with a hook clasp closure and large interior that can hold all your must-haves.

    Promising review: "This purse is stunning in person and extremely well made. I'm not one to spend a lot of money on purses, but I am really pleased with this purchase." —Amanda

    Price: $69

    7. A tote with plenty of compartments so you can actually find your stuff without digging through the entire thing.

    Promising review: "I have had my bag for over a month now and love everything about it. It is made of a high-quality leather with a lovely lining and has loads of pockets to help keep me organized. Best yet, my Dell Notebook fits perfectly, which is why I bought the bag in the first place." —Elizabeth

    Price: $53.99 (available in a two shapes and seven colors)

    8. A backpack that comes with an extra strap so it can also be worn on the shoulder when you want to switch things up.


Promising review: "This backpack/purse is seriously the best I've ever had. The stitch/leather/hardware quality is top-notch. The design is so convenient: The two pockets on the sides are perfect for easy-to-reach objects (phone, pocket mirror, hand lotion, lipstick, lip balm), and the back pocket is very secure for flat items against your back, like car documents and a passport. On the inside, there is one big pocket I use for miscellaneous touch-up items, and two little pockets for cards, sunscreen, tissues, coupons, and keys. The bag itself is SO roomy. I carry way too much stuff, and it all fits. I can have food and a drink in there, my big wallet, a sweatshirt, sunglasses, whatever. The longer shoulder strap is convenient because in certain museums and stores backpacks are not allowed. I also get a ton of compliments on it. People notice!"—Ivanna Y

    Price: $63.68 (available in black and light gray)

    9. A small cross-body bag designed with multiple outer zippered pockets to keep everything organized and within reach.

    Promising review: "It's big enough to carry a lot of things (with good-sized compartments so I can keep things separate). I wear it over my shoulder, not cross-body, and it's a good length. It's probably one of the first bags I've bought where I haven't wished something about it was different; usually, I either don't have enough zippered pockets, or one's not deep enough, or the zipper doesn't close well, or the strap's too thin, etc. With this one, I don't have any issues, which surprised me. I like the flat bottom so it sits upright wherever I put it and I don't need to lean it against anything." —Mollie M.

    Price: $40.99 (available in black, dark blue, and tan)

    10. A hobo bag with a removable strap and a spacious interior that's as functional as it is attractive.

    Promising review: "This bag has clean lines. It looks sophisticated and classy. If you prefer softer, hobo-style bags, this is not the bag for you. It is large enough to hold all of my belongings neatly (including a tablet, wallet, two phones, cosmetic case, sunglasses case, keys, crayons for my daughter, etc.) without me having to worry about the items wearing bulges into the leather. The cross-body strap is great because it allows me to free up my hands when I need to; it's also adjustable, with five holes. This bag is good quality for a low price." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $68.90 (available in six colors)

    11. A mini cross-body bag perfect for running errands or wearing to a concert or music festival.

    Promising review: "Beautiful, adjustable cross-body purse. Perfect size for when you need something bigger than a wallet but smaller than a handbag. It has a gorgeous finish and smells intoxicatingly like leather. The fringe adornment is fun without looking cheap. The strap is removable so it can double as a clutch. The main body is separated by a zippered pocket. The purse shows a quality of workmanship that you won't necessarily find for this price elsewhere. The seams are evenly sewed — there were no loose threads or flaws on it at all. It came well packaged, too. I couldn't be happier — this is exactly what I was looking for (and believe me, I spent hours looking for the right purse)." —Tekkiechikk

    Price: $27.99+ (available in eight colors)

    12. A soft and elegant shoulder bag with a zipper closure so everything stays secure.

    Promising review: "The straps are long enough to put over the shoulder. Plenty of organized storage inside. I like the pocket on the outside of the purse to put my cellphone and car keys in for easy access. The color is quite close to that shown in the picture. Some reviewers think the opening is not large enough but I think it's fine and have no trouble getting things in or out." —Kake

    Price: $63.98 (available in black, tan, purple, and red)

    13. A spacious doctor bag that could easily be mistaken for a designer piece.

    Promising review: "Wow, this is a very high-quality bag at a great price. I just unboxed it, and the packaging ensures there is no damage. It includes a dust bag. The size is perfect — not too large, not too small. The clasp is a swivel-up clip (think hinge, but nicer), and the top frame is also magnetized. The hardware is first-rate. One could wear it under the arm temporarily if needing two hands while shopping, but this is not a shoulder bag — it's a handbag in the purest form. Lovely, classic. I highly recommend it." —Gayle M.

    Price: $69.98 (available in six colors)

    14. A cross-body bag with silver hardware to add some edginess to any an ensemble.

    Promising review: "Love this purse. Worth the cost. Excellent materials. Pretty fabric liner in the upper pocket. Love the cellphone pocket that sits against your leg (phone is out of sight and safe but you can also feel the phone vibrate since the pocket is against your leg). Simple compartments on the inside. It's a nice medium-sized purse that will fit a wristlet/wallet but is not as big as a tote. Will be using this until it wears out." —Maggie

    Price: $82.56+ (available in three colors)

    15. A minimalist backpack that conveniently transforms into a shoulder bag with the pull of a handle.

    Promising review: "The leather is soft and unblemished and the interior is a dark, purplish-brown fabric. The backpack’s structured, minimalist design makes it look much more expensive than it actually is. It’s the perfect size to take out for the day as it’s small enough to be unobtrusive but can hold a water bottle, Kindle, notebook, large wallet, phone, chargers, and snacks. There’s a zippered exterior pocket that rests against your back where I kept my passport and money — I could access it quickly but it also couldn’t be easily pickpocketed. There’s also the option of pulling the straps up so that the backpack becomes a purse or messenger bag. Despite coming with me on trips that included the beach, this backpack still looks great after six months of extensive use. It’s retained its structure and the leather hasn’t faded or peeled anywhere — it still looks as though it could be brand new." —Samantha

    Price: $69.99 (available in three colors)

    16. A slouchy carryall you can wear as a tote, shoulder bag, or cross-body — whatever suits your mood.


Promising review: "This is a beautiful tote! Stunning soft black leather with quality hardware. I plan to use this for traveling when I want to bring my iPad along. It has plenty of room for it and all the extra necessities needed for traveling. It's such a nice size that I might go ahead and use it every day. They packaged it very nicely, and I was very pleased to see the care they took in covering up all the hardware so that nothing gets scratched." —lovthelake

    Price: $59.90 (available in black, light brown, and sorrel)

    17. A bucket tote that'll sit comfortably on the shoulder and includes pockets galore.

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this bag. It's so roomy inside. I like the sturdy one-strap and how it hooks on to the rest of the bag so it doesn't look like it could possibly break (and I carry tons of stuff with me every day). The two huge bonuses to me are the organizer that comes inside — I have it full of all my little things that usually get lost in a big bag, and the fact that there are pockets ALL THE WAY AROUND the bag. Great for my keys, sunglasses, and cellphone. Again, all the things that I am always digging for in my bag. It's really beautiful and goes with everything. Love it!" —Laura

    Price: $51.99 (available in black, red, and olive green)

    18. A large duffel bag so you can look chic AF on your next trip and get some great travel photos for the 'gram.

    Promising review: "This bag is the bomb! It looks like a million bucks — excellent value for the amount paid. I love the black leather name tag holder included, and there are a couple of inner pockets for my computer and smaller items. The zipper runs the whole length of the bag, which is important to me since I will quickly unload my carry-on items needed during my flight so I don't hold up the line on the airplane before putting my bag in the overhead bin. I am a female executive and I consider this a very beautiful and functional bag!" —Travel Alot

    Price: $129.99+ (available in two colors and in black and brown)

    19. A cross-body bag with a removable pouch and two straps of different lengths so you can find the style that best fits you.

    Promising review: "This quickly became my favorite purse! I was looking for a durable cross-body that would be classy for court or church. Love this! There are a few compartments and snaps that keep belongings out of sight but I can easily grab them. It looks like a much more expensive purse. I bought a brown one, too!" —RnAshAsh

    Price: $39.99+ (available in five colors)

    20. And a luxe top-handle bag that's about to become your new go-to shopping partner.

    Promising review: "Love this purse! Wow, this looks much more expensive than it was. I purchased in black, and immediately upon receiving it, placed a second order for the brown one. I am 5'6" and the shoulder strap is the perfect length for me, with the purse hitting right at my waist on the tightest setting. Love the style and the functionality of the purse. All the pocket options are great. I own some very expensive designer purses and I have to say this rivals the best of them, making me shake my head at spending so much on purses in the past. This is a pebbled leather — it is a textured, thick leather, which I love. Much more durable than softer leather." —Katie

    Price: $65.99+ (available in five colors)
