Hello fellow purse-addicts,

I'm in desperate need of a large fabulous black bag (preferably leather) for my spring break trip to the city, but being a poor college student, I can't really afford anything above 150. I've longed for a marc, but sadly, I haven't been able to find anything less than 300... *sighs*

Could you girls give me some suggestions?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Loveee,
Jessica

In my closet of bags!
You should hit up your local TJ Maxx. They are bound to have something nice in your price range and that you like. They have bags that range from $8 to $300 depending on what you are looking for. Alot of the nicer bags are from Italy and although they are not well known designers, they are leather and the quality of craftsmanship shows.

I immediately thought of this My Tribe bag, but sadly it's sold out: http://www.gomattagirls.com/my-tribe-long-leather-shoulder-bag

Keep checking Gomatta Girls; they've had a lot of awesome bags in that price range lately.

I would scope out eBay. Botkiers seem to be reasonably priced there these days... like this leather Stevie is $100 NR: http://cgi.ebay.com/BOTKIER-STEVIE-...ryZ63852QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Here is a Matt & Nat bag: http://www.funkylala.com/product_info.php?products_id=2178 (keep in mind it's vegan--but the non-leather is especially nice. check D&S to see if this site has a code)

Do you have any outlets near you? I pretty much stick to Coach so, of coarse, I have to suggest my favorite brand...Coach. If you live near a Coach outlet, you could most likely get a really nice medium to large sized leather bag plus, maybe even some accessories too for your price range. The Coach outlets always seem to have something for everyone no matter what your price range is.

Thanks so much for all your help guys!

I definitely saw a lot of bags that i really liked, I guess I just didn't know where to look!
