I have an Espirit bag right now.. it's waaay too small. Everyday I usually end up carrying my books in my arms because nothing more than my lunch fits in my backpack

I talked to my sew-a-holic Mom this morning.. she's going to make me a canvas tote for next year. I can't stand nylon backpacks.

here in preppyville, the girls carry those LLBean Canvas Totes and have them monagrammed sometimes. Also, a whole bunch of girls carry Jon Hart tote bags, those can also be monagrammed too. i like the Jon Hart ones myself (i have a big travel bag that i use made by him).

maybe kind of homely/southernish for the fashionistas, but i think they look kinda classy.

Nylon bags can be chic..it all depends on the design and how the fabric is woven. I'm a big fan of Gucci's plain black nylon canvas, it's a hefty, grainy fabric that's a far cry from the flimsy, shiny stuff we usually associate with the word nylon.

And like it or not, as a school bag, NO other material is as durable and easy to take care of nylon.

Wanted: Gorgeous Messenger/tote Bags For College
I am heading off into college (finally, freedom! ) and I am in desperate need of a cute messenger bag or at least a large book bag for toting my books around campus fashionably. My high school doesn't allow it's students to bring bags in school because of the gun phobia etc, etc so I just carry my books to school and deposit them all in my locker but now I need a bag. Can anyone recommend any? They should be reasonably price please since this is something that's going to be used everyday carrying notoriously heavy texts. I will never be able to forgive myself if I torn apart a Prada messenger bag or something of the sort. Any help would be much appreciated

where are you based ?

i'm a messenger manic so.. sharing my tips:

browsing 'guys' shop sections might be very helpfull.

if you can spend some money, invest in a Martin Margela messenger
if you are based in a Zara enabled area, you might find something there but you may need to check it out regularly, their nice messengers come -thanks god- in limited editions and dissapear very quickly.
if you are lucky you may score a cool bag at Nike, diesel, adidas, the yoga lines or new streetwear labels.

a dj bag could also be an alternative.
they are not 'hot' which makes them 'hot to have'

Printemps (france) has my fave 'affordable' chic messengers for as low as 20 euros euros for a small one, maybe they sell them online if they have a web-service (worth checking in anycase)

good luck

Gosh I can imagine how inconvenient that must have been. I can't imagine having to carry around all my books, plus binders, plus stationeries to classes without some sort of a bag.

But anyway...Lena provided some very good suggestions. I would also suggest browsing on eBay for some outrageous deals. I'd recommend something made with woven nylon, because realistically that's the only material that can stand up to the weight of college books and the accompanying daily wear and tear.

And try as you might, it's actually VERY hard to tear apart a Prada nylon messenger. Gucci also makes bags in a plain nylon canvas and that material is even stronger than its Prada counterpart. A versatile, black, classically styled nylon messenger bag is a great addition to anyone's wardrobe - it goes with anything and everything.
