You know what has been most fun for me while working on Purse Blog Savvy? Trying to find great bag at incredibly low prices. And while the prices are not low to the un-handbag lovers out there, they are quite low compared to what we typically post on Purse Blog.

Michael Kors, like many other designers (Marc Jacobs), has a more affordable line under his main Michael Kors line. The MICHAEL by Michael Kors line offers more entry level prices on designer goods. Many times the designs seem to gear toward the 20 year old crowd (perfect for me), but either way it is still a designer good. One of my favorite aspects of the ‘more affordable’ lines sent out by designers is that many times you can nab a high end look for much less.

The MICHAEL Michael Kors Wild Venus Large Saratoga Shoulder Bag is one of the savvy bags that really excites me. Here is exactly what I love about this bag: smooth vanilla grained leather, brushed gold metal hardware, elegant look, perfect price. Seriously, this is the kind of bag that just works. The inside has woven canvas lining, and for under $400 I would not expect suede. Dimensions are not tiny, 12″ (at base)x 12″x 7″. This is a homerun for Michael Kors! Buy through eLuxury for $348.

    I’m not a big fan of most Michael Kors’ bags, but this one is really nice. Weird name for such an understated bag.

    You know, I’ve never liked suede lining anyway. It wears poorly, stains easily, and it’s heavy.

    I have some bags lined in red suede and it has actually bleed onto my wallet etc.. HORRIBLE

    I really like it. As long as MK keeps his logos as discreet as possible, all is fine.

    This bag reminds me of the MARC by MARC JACOBS Totally Turnlock Faridah. It doesn’t look as soft, though.

    I like it, what’s more it has a pocket on the outside! :)

    I just ordered one from E-luxury! Am now crossing my fingers that the bag is as nice as it’s being reviewed…
