New season, new bag, amiright?  I'm on the search for a new everyday purse.  I currently use a sturdy cognac Tory Burch doctor-type messenger bag that is almost too loved, so retirement is near.  The inspiration piece by Elizabeth and James has received a lot of exposure, but its price tag isn't something I can justify right now.  Yes, it's classic black, can be worn multiple ways, etc. etc., but I've just seen too many other options for a lower cost for something this trendy.  Which would you pick?
