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…)
As you know, here at Purse Blog Savvy, we try to offer fabulous designer handbags that might be a little easier on the wallet. Yet, at the same time, obtaining a Gucci, Chanel or Yves Saint Laurent handbag could be lingering in the back (or front) of your mind. But we all know that for the most part, purchasing one of these bags would set you back quite a bit. Well, how about the Yves Saint Laurent Belle De Jour Mini Baguette? The hi-gloss patent leather bag sports goldtone hardware, a noteworthy yet modest “YSL” stitched on the front and adjustable 37″ skinny shoulder strap with 18″ drop. Oh, how could I forget? The handbag is lined with luscious satin. Even if you aren’t in the market for an YSL handbag, this one might be worth a second look. Buy through Bluefly for $380.
There is something about the Holiday Season that gets me all excited. I don’t know if it is the shopping, the sales, the parties, the presents, the overall good mood people seem to be in (minus crazy last minute shoppers) or a combination of it all. Either way, I am thrilled that the Holiday Season is quickly approaching. I personally love holiday parties. It is a great excuse to dress up, mingle with friends or friends to be and just enjoy the festive season. Yet, this begs the question, what do I wear and which handbag will I sport? I think I’ve found at least one handbag I’d love to carry to a party, the Yves Saint Laurent Evening Muse. I am totally in love with the fabulous golden metallic leather and -gasp- silk stitching. But wait my friends it gets better on the inside… plush satin lining. Gorgeous. Ok, sure, I am always a little concerned with satin and how easily it could snag (especially as lining) but, it’s on the inside of the bag, so a little snag here or there won’t even be seen by anyone else! And no matter where you are partying, be it a huge city or a small town, or where you are going, be it a red carpet premier or a family gathering, this bag is sure to turn heads! Keep in mind that the size is much smaller than the typical YSL Muse, only 9Â½”W X 6Â¼”H X 2Â½”D which designates it a true mini-Muse/evening bag. Buy through Saks for $995.
