Question: Iâ€™m looking for the messenger bag that Jennifer Garner wore in Catch and Release — brown leather, buckle strapâ€¦
Answer: Although I scoured the Web searching for the brand of this bag (or even a good picture of it for that matter) my efforts came up short. But in the spirit of really cute leather messengers, I have done my best to provide a nice selection of look-alikes:
It seems that Jennifer Garner is not the only one slinging a leather carry-all over her shoulder these days, Jessica Simpson is a big fan of this old fashioned leather mail bag by Blur. It is perfectly vintage with soft, processed Italian leather. The bag that might most resemble the one in the film is Koobaâ€™s oak leather studded ‘Annie’ shoulder bag with its wide buckle strap and numerous pockets. A slightly roomier version comes from Anthropologie, a store that can always be counted on for flea market-esque finds. Hobo offers a slim, urban messenger that will mold around your body very nicely for those undesired, yet necessary cramming-into-the-subway moments. It also has easily accessible outer pockets, great for Blackberries and iPods. And just in case you are already sick of looking at brown bags, Ellington Leatherâ€™s Moroccan purse in a unique pumpkin color is very eye-catching.
