I've gotten some questions about my satchel, but since it was a gift from my sister and not any brand I recognize I know nothing about it.
BUT, in my searches for an alternative I found some KILLER options! The best part is that these are mostly from places like Target, Forever 21, JCPenney, ASOS, and ModCloth, and they're all under $50! Some of them make me drool like whoa. Many of them come in multiple colors, particularly black and navy, but of course I'm partial to cognac.
If I'm honest, I kind of didn't want to share these with you because I didn't want them to sell out before I decided. Haha! But out of the goodness of my heart I am sharing the wealth. I know, such a giver I am. :)
Links to Shop:
Option #1 - BE STILL MY TARGET-LOVING HEART. This was available in coral in the spring/summer and it is BEAUTIFUL. I wish I had snatched it up when I saw it in store. There's a wait list for it now online in the fall colors. :( Comes in black and navy too!
Option #2 is so luscious looking, though I have yet to see it in person to confirm that. It also comes in black, cognac, and a fiery orange/red which is very enticing.
Option #3 - I took this home to try out, but I'm debating between this or putting myself on the wait list for option 1.
Option #4 has a wider base which I actually like a lot. Click in to see the side view. I would say this seems the closest to the type of satchel I have.
Option #5 - Cute bag from ModCloth. I like the two-toned nature of it.
Option #6 - I like that this also comes in green. I love how green satchels look!
Option #7 - Comes in a variety of colors. I really like the look, but not sure about the function. The top that folds down is a flap, but if your bag is too full it doesn't fold down which affects the look of the bag.
Option #8 is bigger than it looks in the picture. This picture makes it look like a tiny little crossbody bag, but it is not. I got it in stone/blackish and am trying to decide whether or not to keep it right now. You can click in to see the proportions on a mannequin.
