The best purses you probably haven't heard of

I would classify myself as a little bit of a purse snob.  I don't spend much more than $100 on mine and don't have a big collection, but I would not carry a PVC handbag or a (gasp!) knockoff if I can help it.  On the other hand, I'm far too practical to spend hundreds on one bag. 

You've probably noticed that the selection of quality bags under $120 is small.  When I became obsessed with the idea of finding a small-ish gray hobo bag, I shopped for about 2 weeks before I discovered Elliott Lucca at Nordstrom Rack (when I told myself I was only going to buy new underwear that day). 

I daresay I found the almost perfect purse.  The Valencia demi hobo bag is not too small, but big enough.  The strap is just long enough, and the leather is super soft.  Of course, you can't get gray anymore so the only picture I could find is in black.

I ended up loving that purse so much I asked for the Maxfield Demi for Christmas in dark brown.  That color is also no longer available, so that photo is black too.

You can get the bags at Nordstrom (and Nordstrom Rack!) and and I highly recommend you check them out (unless of course you like paying $298 for a bag.)
