If I told you that loving handbags is an expensive hobby, it'd be preaching to the choir - you guys already know that a single glimpse of the perfect bag can put a dent in your bank account with a quickness. We spend a lot of time exploring the garden of earthly delights that constitutes the highest of the high end bag markets, and sometimes I completely forget that covetable stuff exists at the opposite end. With a little bit of planning, spending a couple hundred bucks can yield a result nearly as exciting as spending ten times that.
We understand if you're skeptical, and in fact, we came prepared. Below, we've assembled a list of bags that might inspire you to splurge a bit (but not too much) in the near future. Everything from bright clutches to neutral day bags can be found for less than $300, and nearly everything we found is made entirely of real leather. Not too shabby, right? Go ahead, take a look - your bank account is already breathing a sigh of relief.
