Stylish School Bags

Last August, I wrote an article about different types of bags you can carry to school. I listed different backpacks, messenger bags, and totes that you can use as your new school bag. Well it's a new school year now and everyone who's going back is is most likely going to need a new bag for this year as well (I know I do). So, I'm going to feature some bags that fit in with this year's trends (same types of bags from last year though). Take a look at my little school bag finds below.

I hope the school bags I found are sturdy and stylish enough to help get you through the whole school year and carry your essentials. I'm still searching for the perfect school bag myself, so let me know which of the bags above you like best (I'd prefer a tote or messenger bag over a backpack). Also, tell me if there are any other types of bags you can carry to school that you would like to see me post here. E-mail me at or write a message to me on myspace.

Cute bags! Love the Hello Kitty one!

Tara said...

I like the Hello Kitty bag too (both the plaid one and the neon one). $16.50 is a little out of my price range though. Hopefully, I'll save up enough before school starts so I can buy one of these bags.

-cry- I have no money. :'( Guess I'll have to stick to the same ugly worn backpack from elem. school. >.<

Tara said...

I have no money either, so I sympathize with you. I'm still hoping to save up enough before school starts so I can get a new bag for this year. The tote I used last year is falling apart and I'm really afraid one of the straps is going to break off if I overload it with heavy books (and the books I have to buy and often bring to class tend to be pretty heavy).

They're so cute!

Nice bags. I liked the hello kitty one too!!!
Although my schools started long no bag shopping now!
I'm better now. No more fever! Thanks for your wishes :D

Tara said...

CC: I'm glad you like the bags I posted.

Cursed: I'm glad you like the bags. I go back to school next week. I'm glad you're feeling better and that your fever went away. :)

Tara said...

I'm glad you like the blue bags. :)

I love this bag for the airport. It holds so much and keeps you very organized.
Even my husband was impressed with this diaper bag.
