J. Crew imported the leather for its Marlow satchel ($278) from a former upholstery tannery to achieve its timeworn style. Available in cobblestone (pictured), black and henna. We're loving the light color for a transition into early fall. GET IT: and catalog only.

Weather the fall with a sleek pop of color amid everyone else's dark colors. OK, so this was a spring bag -- but that just means that Foley + Corinna's scarlet hobo bag (was $495; now $247.50) is half off! GET IT:

The price of Isabella Fiore's Sonia Satchel ($495) makes it more than a splurge, but we can't help looking at this one a bit dreamily anyway. The embroidered tapestry satchel with leather trim evokes an antique carpetbag. Let's pack up and hop the train, already. GET IT: SimplySoles, online, 3222 M St. N.W. or 138 Waterfront Street, Oxon Hill, Md.

Gräf & Lantz Jaunt bags ($229-$249) come in a huge array of combinations, offering up numerous ways to embrace one of the decade's most ongoing (but least tired trends, colorblocking, points out Glamazon Diaries). You can also choose between all-leather or leather-and-felt concoctions. The bags have two interior pockets and a magnetic snap closure for easy grabbing-of-stuff. GET IT:
OK, so the Bond Small East/West Tote ($650) by Tory Burch is another one that's more than a stretch. But if you're lucky enough to be able to do more than dream, this could be The One. It's hard to be so versatile and so colorful at the same time, but this one just about does it. GET IT: Tory Burch, online or Tysons Corner.

We could almost imagine the newsboy cap on your head if you're toting the Chain Strap Satchel ($69) by Kimchi Blue. This roomy bag includes a zip pocket, organizer pouch and an adjustable, removable crossbody strap. The grey/black edition is great if you're aiming to go a little bit steampunk. GET IT: Urban Outfitters, online, 3111 M St., N.W., 737 7th St. N.W. or Tysons Corner.

Shh! It may not be a Coach bag, but it's a darn good lookalike. Banana Republic's Leather whipstitch hobo ($198) goes for a rustic look with decorative stitching on the strap and antique brass hardware. GET IT: Banana Republic, online, 3200 M St. N.W., 601 13th St. N.W., Pentagon City or Tysons Corner.
