As you probably already know, Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale began on Wednesday (up to 40 percent off, folks!) -- and one of the first places we rushed to on the site was the handbag section. Duh.

We looked through every single bag that's marked down and picked our favorite 20, which was not an easy feat. From Zac Posen (those bag silhouettes, though!) and Rebecca Minkoff to Ted Baker and Alexander McQueen, we chose some beauties -- if we do say so ourselves. Not to mention, the retailer offers free shipping and free returns -- so investing really is a no-brainer. You have until June 4. Ready, set, go!

UPDATE (6/2): There are only 4 of our picks left (see them below) -- so act quickly!
