Every Chanel lover is coming down off a fume about the recent exorbitant price increases. While we all expect our handbags to become more expensive over time, the Chanel hike has been ridiculous. Luckily there are other designers whose handbags meet our fancies. And as the prices sky rocket, it is comforting to see some handbags that remain in the lower range, which is ridiculous that we consider under $1500 lower now. A brand that is filling the shoes of its big sister beautifully is Miu Miu. Many of the recent Miu Miu handbags have been huge hits, giving us the feeling of a Prada bag with a price that allows us all to breathe easy. From the resort collection, the Miu Miu Quilted Chevron Shoulder Bag gives us a great quilt on a nude colored shoulder bag. The link chain top handle is designed with a nude toned chain, which makes this handbag sleek and uniform. The only aspect that stands out is the Miu Miu logo in gold hardware. Yet when this simple bag comes together, the look is clean and chic. And the price, this is where I get back to the Chanel price increase; because you can get this handbag for much less than a Chanel quilted bag. And no, you don’t need to play this handbag off as a Chanel, just love it as a quilted Miu Miu bag. Pre-order at Saks for $1155.
And if you are looking for a killer pair of shoes to compliment this bag, stick to Miu Miu. Miu Miu shoes are designed impeccably well, with an understanding of how a woman’s body is made, to give you the most comfort while looking astounding. Spice up your shoe wardrobe with the Miu Miu Deco Patent Platform Shoes. The pink with pink/black trim is a great color combination and the deco look adds a modern and nice touch. Buy at Saks for $695.
