Ask Belle: Simple Satchels and Totes

Dear Belle,

My go-to purse is four years old and falling apart.  I would like to replace it with a nicer tote or satchel.  I’m looking ideally for a black bag, but I’m also open to another color.  My budget is about $300 and I need that to give me an all-around bag that isn’t too big.

I always like the inexpensive bags you post but I want something that will last.  I appreciate you taking the time.  AC


Sonia Crossbody Tote ($148)


DKNY Chelsea Satchel ($298)


Braided Handle Satchel ($110)


Oryany Slate Satchel ($261)


Ralph Lauren City Tote ($200)


ZAC Zac Posen Eartha Tote ($198)


Ralph Lauren Fairfield Tote ($248)

    Check for designer and non designer as well — they have good prices.

    Neiman Marcus Last Call is a great resource for purses, too. If you’re willing to cull through the junk (using the price and brand restrictions can help there), I’ve found some real gems for not much at all.
