Ok, I have to admit that I am a purse virgin. I tend to carry around totes and messenger bags b/c my style is pretty casual and I always felt intimidated by expensive bags. However, I'm trying to up my style factor and go for a more fun / funky / put together, but still casual look.

I'd really like to find a camel-colored bag, maybe something along the lines of this: bag.jpg

I just browsed tano bags online, and thought some of those styles were really cute.

any suggestions of other brands I might like?

Thanks so much!

I think people like the cheap chic of the Silverlake Satchel (although it's hard to find now that it's sooo popular!):

Some of the Banana Republic bags are just gorgeous:

I saw this bag and thought it was cute and not too crazy priced:

Take a look at sites like Endless.com and Zappos.com for some ideas too!

Once you figure out what you love, you can start looking for what brands/designers that suit you and your price range, and look for some great deals on some gorgeous bags!

Welcome!

Linea Pelle has some casual style handbags if you're into super soft, squishy leathers. Their whiskey color is kind of like camel.

ITA! Comfy casual but deliciously soft leather! :tup:

I'm not sure if you would like it, but for a cheap thrill, check out the Shadow series satchel from Guess. But the series is already finished, so they're really more around ebay (if you dare venture in those waters). There's a black and gray, a blue and white, and a plum and white for colors in the shadow series.

Pic for example of the Mocha ...
