If you like the long-strapped slouchy satchel that is both functional and stylish, I highly recommend checking out the current sale at Urban Outfitters.  These long-strapped are amazing because the strap is usually detachable, which allows you to wear the purse in different ways.  Versatility is definitely a huge trend over the last year, which has definitely been inspired by recently tightened budgets.

If you like the messenger bag look you can wear it cross-body, but if you like the long slouchy look you can wear it hanging down on one side.  If you don’t like the long strap at all, you can usually remove it and carry your bag by the two handles at the top.

Urban Outfitters has a selection of super cute and trendy satchels that are currently on sale for under $40!  I love the fun feel of these bags in fun colors like Mustard and Navy paired with busy details like pintuck stitching and belted straps.  These are great bags for commuters or students!

Deena & Ozzy Chain Tote $39.99 (was $58)
