I'm going into my senior year of college and I'm looking for a beautiful leather or faux leather messenger bag. I absolutely love this one. The bag has pockets for my necessities and enough space for my notebooks. However, the price tag is a bit high. I'm looking for something similar in a brown color, maybe a bit bigger, and possibly for under $80. Thank you, ladies!"
