Good Question: Messenger Bags
May 11, 2007
From a SheFinds Reader: In a recent issue of either â€œUsâ€ or â€œIn Touchâ€ magazine (I was at the salon) there was a photo of Angelina Jolie carrying her son. She was wearing a black leather bag across her body. The strap was wide and had 2 silver rings in the strap that hit her about mid-chest. The bag was pretty large like a messenger size but I couldnâ€™t see whether it had a flap or not. I would really appreciate any help you could give me. This looks like the bag I have been searching for!
The Answer: Did you know that Zappos, known for its great deals on great shoes, also carries handbags and other accessories? I found this handy looking leather cross body bag from DKNY. Wide strap? Check. Silver rings? Check? Black leather? Check. Unfortunately, back issues of â€œUsâ€ or â€œIn Touchâ€ magazine are hard to come by. So we can’t confirm whether this is the bag in question, but it sounds pretty doggone close. Here are a couple other great bags that a jet-set mom like Miss Angelina might love. Inspired by the postal carry-all, the classic messenger bag makes easy work of shlepping a heavy load. Styled in leather, the messenger is a staple of urban professionals everywhere. And few do leather better than Coach, which makes various styles of the bag, including this medium size one found at back-in-style.com. Au courant hobo styling makes this next bag fun while the adjustable strap and multiple pockets keep it functional, another one courtesy of DKNY from eluxury.com.
