Question of the day: Where can I find a good Messenger Bag?

Dear Fashiontarian,
I am obsessed with finding the perfect messenger bag. I want it to look chic enough for work and evenings out but not too trendy so it is obvious which season it was purchased. Please help.
Thanks,
Lousia, Chicago
Dear Louisa,
I too am looking for that perfect messenger bag which seems to be easy to carry, hip for an evening out yet work appropriate. Depending on your budget, I would recommend the following. Bags are organized by price.
--Fashiontarian
High:
Gucci, $895 (Bergdorf Goodman)
Tod's Messenger Media Bag, $775 (Saks)*
*Our Pick
Mid:
Nadia Large Cargo Sac by Ani, $485 (LunaBoston)
Blur Mail Bag, now $346.99 (as seen on Jessica Simpson)
Shutterbug Messenger Bag, $328 (Anthropologie)*
*Our Pick
Low:
Chum Chum Chum XL Diaper Bag, $149 (Wabags)*
Graphite Messenger - Olive, $78 (Brooklyn Industries)
*Our Pick
Note: Diaper bags are always a good messenger bag option because there are a variety of styles, colors and fabrications to choose from with lots of pockets.
