Savvy Bags on a Budget
We’ve been writing a lot about sales recently (they only come around twice a year, after all), but buying something that’s been marked down isn’t the only way to get a good value. If you shop carefully and know what to look for, you can find lots of bags at full price that look like they cost far more than they do.
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacos Lip Lock XBody Bag
Price: $440 via mytheresa.com
Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Marc by Marc Jacobs might not be long for this world, but the brand is still releasing some solid new bags while it’s still around.
Good bags don’t come cheap, and with all the price increases that we’ve been cataloging recently, they’re not going to be getting any less expensive any time soon. We know that not all of you (and, quite frankly, all of us) have the budget for a four-figure bag purchase every season, though, so we’ve done some digging into what can be had for less.
Bag: See by Chloé Kristen Python Print Shoulder Bag
Price: $598 via MATCHESFASHION.COM
Why It’s the Bag of the Week: The rich, multicolored python print on this bag can do a little bit of everything–work, play, day, evening. It’ll also disguise wear very well.
Fashion shows are nice, but nothing beats getting to see new handbags up close; touching something, opening it up and putting it on your arm are the best ways to evaluate a collection. Luckily, we got to do just that yesterday with Coach’s Fall 2015 bags (and coats–just wait until you see the coats), and we think you’ll be just as excited about this collection as we are.
