Fabulous Fall Backpacks

For those of you looking for a stylish and functional backpack as you (or your kids) head back to school, here are a few terrific recommendations...

Louis Vuitton's monogrammed all leather Montsouris Backpack is gorgeous. Not a lot of books will fit in here, but it's pretty nonetheless. It has drawstring closure and a buckled flap for extra safety. There is also a zippered outside pocket for easy access to your cell, blackberry, etc...Buy it here for $975.

Buy Prada Women's Backpack in Nero here. Bonus! It's on sale from $450 to $249. This sporty but very chic pack is made out of a special fabric called Vela which is a super strong and shiny type of Nylon. It has padded shoulder straps and the flap has a buckle closure and a magnetic snap.

For a few sportier and more practical picks,

This Jansport Bag got me through all of High School and College (the same one), it's extremely durable and perfect for the student or mom on the go! It's available in a variety of colors including Red, Green, Black and Blue. It sells for $39.90, here

Target's Xhilaration Backpack 3 Pocket Backpack sells for $16.99. It's available in black and red online or in stores. The three snap and zip pockets make this a very practical bag for everyday use. It is made from 100% cotton canvas and the lining is polyester.

and finally, I just had to include this one because it's pink! It's the OGIO Shifter and it sells for $53.99, Available here. Looks like the perfect school bag to me!

A lot of US sellers will ship internationally. Especially to Canada! Let me know if I can help.

Super-fly. I looked on Ebay! But Ebay Canada only had 2 of them, with only 12 hours left.

my mom has gotten me some crazy, expensive backpacks that aren't comfy and don't even have enough room for books. Those Jansport bags are sooooo durable and they last a while.

Finding a classic jansport backpack like this is killing me. I want one, but whenever I look to buy one online, it's only for the US. And most store don't sell this shape of Jansport, I'm still searching!

Since we are doing movie quotes.... "And it's like I'm supposed to be all happy 'cause she's wearing a backpack..." Any guesses? These companies have been making backpacks forever. I don't think they got the memo that people stopped using them for purses in the mid 90's.

i'm a student, and the last backpack is definitely the perfect one. the one from target looks good too, just that it may not be so lasting and gets dirty easily. ____________________________________ Don't tick me off. Or you'll get it.

and I agree SanD- Northface anything is great and holds up very well (even though overly trendy in my area at the moment)

eww I havent used a backpak in forever and sooo many girls have knockoffs of these nowadays... I prefer some type of cute tote for class

Jansports do not last forever. Especially for a nerd like me. I used to carry heavy books in highschool and they'd tear a hole in the bottom or my zipper would break. I love Northface backpacks. Theyre great for hiking too.

omg does the prada backpack make anyone else think of '10 things i hate about you'?? -"there's a difference between like and love. i mean i like my skechers, but i love my prada backpack." -"but i love my skechers." -"that's because you don't have a prada backpack." hahaha...anyways, i'm not feeling the backpack thing...makes me think of the mini backpacks i carried around in middle school.

i haven't used a backpack for school since 8th grade, I always use a cute tote or messenger bag, as long as it DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A SCHOOL BAG, haha, nothing ruins a cute outfit like a ginormous utilitarian backpack. The LV bag is actually not as expensive as i would have thought, but I'm so over the monogramming.

Jansports do last forever. I used the same one through high school and college too.
