Look for Less

Page 4

When I first spotted the Burberry Knotted Hobo, it was love (cue song from Lady and the Tramp when they share spaghetti and meatballs now). While the Burberry Hobo is not ridiculously expensive, I still found a great option for the look for less.

Let me introduce the Marc by Marc Jacobs Bow Wow Wow Slingdoodle Leather Crossbody Bag. Ok, let’s please all ignore the name of the bag. It is funny, but rather ridiculous. As if the Bow Wow Wow was not enough Marc Jacobs added the Slingdoodle. Anyhow, back to the matter at hand. (more…)

I love a look for less that shows us similar styles without looking like the idea has been completely imitated. This is what I see when I compare the Derek Lam Nadia Hobo and the Olivia Harris Round Zip Pocket Tote. Both of these bags contain similar qualities. Let’s break it down and see what we have.

YSL vs Hobo International

With so many handbags on the market, there are always options that can give you a look you love for less. Let’s face it, we don’t all have endless handbag budgets all the time. We have already given you a studded clutch option for less and a Chanel option for less. Now it is time to give you a Leather Hobo Look for Less. (more…)

Chanel Look for Less

When asked about one of the most classic handbags ever, Chanel comes to mind. The Chanel Classic Flap is synonymous with timeless. If you have the budget to splurge, this is a staple for your collection.

Chanel bags are also known for their high price tags. Many of us can not afford a nearly $3,000 bag. If you are looking for an option for a Chanel look for less, Urban Outfitters has an option. (more…)

Louboutin vs Santi

Christian Louboutin continues to make a name for himself in the handbag world. The Christian Louboutin Loubistuds Clutch wowed us when we first viewed it. The perfect edginess was added to make that clutch a contender and a clutch that truly would amp up your night time outfits. The problem with that clutch was the price. Just over $1500, that is one pricey clutch. (more…)

Last week, on Luxaholics, we talked about getting Lauren Conrad’s Chanel Caviar Jumbo Flap look for less. While we found several amazing handbags that offered a similar look for a smaller price, it got me thinking. Are there certain looks out there where you would rather save your money for the real thing than get a different bag with a similar look but for less? Now, just yesterday I talked about the Bottega Veneta Vibio Large Clutch and the notion of handbags being an investment. Personally, I feel as though everyone has a weakness, be it handbags, techie gadgets, clothing, etc, and with this comes the balance between what you want and what you can afford. So with these weaknesses, pinch pennies or get the look for less?

When it comes to handbags, exotics are everywhere! In all reality, they have been for quite some time now and I don’t see this trend vanishing anytime soon. Everywhere you look, something exotic can be spotted. If you are an avid reader of Purse Blog, you’ve seen some of the wonderful exotics we mentioned which came with a hefty price tag, cough Salvatore Ferragamo Oversized Carlotta Alligator Tote cough or perhaps the Hermes Kelly Long Wallet. Sure, we don’t all have thousands of dollars to drop whenever we want to expand our handbag collection, but when going exotic, is getting the look for less worth it? There are several exotics out there I have my eye on, but especially with the party infused holiday season quickly approaching, I am thinking about picking up a “look for less” in order to tie me over.
