in terms of tote bags, I know Kate Spade is so late 90s but her canvas totes are extremely durable, fit a tonne of stuff and are well priced too (im a uni student too, 3rd yr and i have lots of stuff i need to carry including texts, notebooks, lab stuff, etc)

this is the inside of a mission hills adora from a few seasons ago (has 4 compartments, leather handles and doesnt look half bad either)

I love my Timbuk2 bags-
they are designed for bike messangers, so they will take a lot of abuse!
On their website www.timbuk2.com you can design your own bag, picking colors, patterns etc.

Manhattan portage bags are great for school. They are really inexpensive too.

mucho gracias, everyone!

I am based in the US, unfortunately, quite fashion backward which is why this place is my Heaven

I have persuaded my mother to at least share some of the cost of the bag with me so I am looking into the Prada messenger bags which I confess I like a whole lot because of the minimalistic sleek design. I especially like the ones with the two buckles obssessed as I am with hardware on my purses, also the Kate Spade ones I have been trying to see some, none of this season's one catch my eye quite so much and so I am going through Ebay hoping I can get one from seasons ago from there.

Dj bags? What are those (and once again, I display my ignorance in the fashion dept.) Anything that I have and no one else does is fine with me.

I agree!
The bags would be so much nicer without that huge annoying red patch! :/

What, you mean you actually considered buying Prada outside of eBay?

It's easy to tell if something's fake or not; just follow the general guidelines regarding eBay shopping that's been thoroughly discussed in this forum. Unfortunately the more desirable models are rare to show up, leaving you most often with oceans of mundane (but still authentic) bags.

Best thing to do is to go into a Prada store, and jot down the model numbers of the bags you like, then search on eBay with them. It'd make your search a lot easier.

So how about it, Luna? Got a lot of free time on your hands?

good point. Cheapskate that I am. Well, a common design doesn't bother me for school because it's colloge. I am not about to grunge out but I don't think I'll be putting the effort into dressing up like usually do. As it is, I'll probably be the only girl still wearing heels around campus, kitten heels though they may be.

What kinda messenger do you want?


If ya dont wanna wait, I bought a cool Levis denim messenger from yakpak.com a couple of years ago... i bought two identical rhinestone pins and permanently pinned them to each side of the flap of the bag. it's cute. people always ask me where i got it.. and i tell them "I'm a dork, I bought it online".
