Clockwise from left: Calling for Rain Bag, Control Messenger by Burton, Charlie Tote by A.Toy, Dayton Flat Clutch by Tory Burch, and Larry by Jerome Dreyfuss.

Now that the shows have wrapped and you’ve memorized your favorite spring 2011 accessories from Milan and New York, it’s time to focus again on fall 2010 — and all of the stores currently packed with lust-worthy shoes and bags. We’ve already rounded up the season’s best shoes, so now it’s arm candy time! In our latest Shop-A-Matic, we highlight 130 school-inspired satchels, work-friendly totes, brightly patterned bags, and so much more. Peep at five of our favorites after the jump.

Calling for Rain Bag
Price: $88
Why We Like It: Roomy enough for all of your night out essentials (but not so much that it’s overwhelming), this shoulder bag is a more practical alternative to just as sparkly clutches.

Control Messenger by Burton
Price: $150
Why We Like It: Made in collaboration with Vermont-based, 167-year-old wool maker Johnson Woolen Mills, the on trend plaid messenger is durable enough to protect laptops in wet winter weather.

Charlie Tote by A.Toy
Price: $595
Why We Like It: Only 99 of these unisex tooled leather totes are made each season and this design will be retired afterward, guaranteeing that you’ll have a one-of-a-kind bag.

Dayton Flat Clutch by Tory Burch
Price: $350
Why We Like It: An over-sized clutch is an unexpected choice for daytime wear, but should you tire of slipping the bag under your arm, this one features a removable strap that can be worn cross-body style.

Larry by Jerome Dreyfuss
Price: $735
Why We Like It: The supple suede and eye-catching hue of this investment bag add the perfect pop of color to any outfit.
