Like all of you I am purse addicted. I am writing an article for my school newspaper about designer bags- here's the catch, they have to be lower-end designers and they have to be school bag/tote size. I am trying to give some affordable bags ($0-250ish) suggestions, that are also stylish designers, to my school. I know this will not be LV or gucci. And of course not Hermes or Chanel, but brands like Coach or the french Longchamp or even just lacoste. The girls fantasize about the beautiful (yet horribly expensive) bags. I would just like to put an idea in their heads, that yes there are designers and brands out there. Do you, the wise purse addicts and lovers, have any suggestions? I hope you have some ideas. Thanks so much!
