2. MARC by Marc Jacobs Natasha Shoulder Bag at Neiman Marcus

Price: $328.00 at neimanmarcus.com
Every girl needs at least one shoulder bag that serves its purpose without making her shoulder ache. The tan leather is so soft and supple. That is one of the best things about leather. I also enjoy the smell of leather as well. The gold accents on this purse go great with the tan coloring. I like the way the flap covers the zippered portion inside and is closed with a simple turnlock. The magnetic-action on this flap makes it easier to quickly close and have it stay in place while turning the lock. There are even two open pockets on the inside, making it easier to quickly slip a coin purse or sunglasses right into them and avoid fighting with too many zippers.
