Joy Gryson, Marc Jacobs' Former Handbag Designer, Designs Purses Worth A Month's Rent (PHOTOS)

Joy Gryson has a sterling pedigree. The handbag designer rose through the ranks at design houses like Liz Claiborne, Coach, Calvin Klein, and eventually landed at Marc Jacobs. So yeah, we have her to thank for all of those covetable bags that have sucked up our rent money.

Gryson launched her namesake line in 2006 and the slouchy leather bags are the perfect mix of luxury and function -- multiple pockets mean no more searching for your phone or keys in the deep dark abyss of your handbag. Not ready to forgo your rent? We've got you covered because Gryson is giving away one handbag to the best commenter below through April 11, 2012. What are you waiting for?
