Bag lady

I'm having a bag problem.  This may be because it's summer and that means schlepping stuff to the lake, traveling more, and going out (wintertime is legitimately hibernation season in Chicago); it may be that I've just given up on trying to find clothes that fit.  For whatever reason . . . bags galore, for your shopping and perusing pleasure: 

The original and awesome LL Bean Boat and Tote.  As you can see, even my dog has one of these (which is yes, insane, but we use it all the time and I highly recommend it -- they're reasonably priced, durable, and washable).  Also a great idea, if you're in the market for gifts: my best friend (who named Tall and Salty) gave these as bridesmaid gifts at her wedding, which everyone loved and appreciated.  

Though camo isn't my usual cup of tea, this LL Bean Hunter's Bag can be monogrammed, which seems like it could be kind of cool.
LL Bean's "fancy" line, LL Bean Signature, has some great weekenders, like this Downeaster Sport bag.
Clare Vivier's clutches are fantastic for all occasions and pack flat for traveling.
This simple, slouchy, Topshop bag is on sale and would be really versatile (it fits work shoes, huzzah).
Who knew?  In addition to gross ads and neoprene unitards, American Apparel has some really nice, simple, leather handbags, like this satchel . . .
. . . and this tote, which would make a perfect summer work bag.  No hardware, no muss, no fuss.
Do you have your eye on anything?
