Juicy Couture Canvas Messenger, Handbag of the Day
With a distressed, slightly fraying edge, the Canvas Messenger Bag from Juicy Couture is meant to look like it is well-worn and much-used, although it is surely not meant to invoke the idea that it was used to carry books back and fourth between classes, despite the fact that the bag is likely to be used to that very purpose. Distressing a bag by carrying too many school books just doesn't seem to fit with Juicy's intended image. The messenger bag is made of green cotton canvas and has golden hardware accents. The leather shoulder strap is detachable and, to give the bag a bit of a vintage touch, the top flap ties with a thin cord instead of a snap. Price: $295.
