So this bag in the pictures above is from Steve Madden.  I don't know why it's so hard for me to wrap my head around. I think it's probably because I associate SM with shoes only.  I've gotten sooooo many compliments on this bag already and I'm always so excited to tell people that it's from SM. The embellished strap is the perfect decorative touch without going overboard.  It's fun and festive and still office appropriate if you don't have too much to carry.  I really like this crossbody for weekend use.  It's not nearly big enough for me to use everyday but it's perfect for running errands on the weekends or a night out!

A lot of designers are selling these straps separately now so if you start to get sick of one, you can buy a new strap and just swap it out.  You can get them from a lot of designers now like Steve Madden for around $28 and even Kate Spade and Rebecca Minkoff are getting in on this trend.  Theirs are a little more pricey starting at around $95.  If you want to see more of these pieces, I've linked some of my favorite fun straps below, and also some bags that come with these fun straps as well.

Now moving on to everyday bags that serve a purpose.....
If you’re like me then you like to make a few key investments in the beginning of Fall to set you up for the new season. For me this starts with my everyday bag. By the time September came around this year, my off-white Kate Spade bucket bag had definitely seen better days.  I had been using and abusing that thing every day since I got it in April. It was dirty, the seams were coming apart and I knew it was time for a Fall upgrade.

I know everyone has different tastes, needs, and budgets but beyond that, I think we can all agree we want a bag that will last and one that will serve its purpose.  So whether you're carrying just an ID/debit card for a night out or you need to schlep around a laptop all day for work, I've got you covered.

I've picked out some of the best handbags for Fall that will meet all of your everyday needs. To help you even more, I've sorted them by various price groups starting with the $50 and under category below. And don't think that just because they're so reasonable means they're poor quality. A lot of the bags in this category are well-made designer bags that are on sale from previous seasons.....So definitely check 'em out!
