Good Question: Messenger Bags

From a SheFinds Reader: In a recent issue of either “Us” or “In Touch” 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 couldn’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 “Us” or “In Touch” 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 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
