I would give my right arm for a Givenchy Nightingale ($1,895). There's no other way to describe it than utter perfection. But considering the hefty price tag and the fact that I own a ton of black bags, I've learned to surrender my feelings. But recently, I came upon a very similar version, so I may not have to surrender after all . . .

It's no Nightingale, but this BCBGeneration Rembrandt Medium Satchel ($103, originally $138) is pretty darn close. It has the same satchel, cross-body straps, and shape. The only thing is, it has a zipper going across the center. It's actually not a bad detail. If you're as in love with the Nightingale but can't afford it, this is your best solution.
