If you’ve made your way to PurseBlog on this day or any other, it’s safe to say that you have champagne tastes, no matter whether you have the budget to match. We know what it’s like not to be able to buy everything you want (we spend all day looking at designer handbags, remember), so today we have some bags that may help.

Although these bags are not necessarily affordable, they manage to look like they cost way more than what they do, and they’ll all make you look like a million bucks for three figures (and sometimes fewer). We’re especially fond of the Vince Camuto tote above; isn’t it lovely?

This is something very interesting that is worth paying your extreme attention ,a very good chance to work for those people who want to use their free time so that they can make some extra money using their computers… I have been working on this for last two and half years and I am earning 60-90 dollar/ hour … In the past week I have earned 13,70 dollars for almost 20 hours sitting ….

Any special qualification, degree or skills is not necessary for this, just keyboard typing and a good working and reliable internet connection ….

Not any Time limitations to start work … You may do this work at any time when you willing to do it ….

Just know how I have been doing this…..….see this (webiste-Iink) on my !profile!` to know how I am working` on this`

D&B has some very nice bags out recently. I’ve been shocked. I never like the brand and wrote them off as tacky city. But I’ve been surprised this last year or so to see some nice styles and good leathers on some of their bags.

I totally agree. I used to think D&B was just gross. If LV couldn’t pull off rainbow monogram, D&B def could not.

This is totally off topic; however, I wanted to give a shout out to Megs for being quoted in today’s Post related to Gucci.

Thank you! I was planning to share the article, it’s a really nice article and appreciate you giving me a shout out 🙂

I just saw that Coach bag at Macy’s today. I wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole. The leather had little cracks on it. Not scratches. Cracks.
That MK bag is on my wish list.

That Coach display bag may have been abused in some way; Megs carried the Ace during fashion week and I thought it was so pretty in person!

And the one I carried was a sample, so it had been used a lot, and it was beautiful. Not sure what happened to the one you saw

I don’t know either, but that was a red flag for me. If it was abused then the store should have pulled it off the shelf and replaced it with another one. I’ll just stick with my vintage Coach bags.

What do you mean about a tie in? I carried a Coach bag to the Coach show and it was loaned out as it was a sample from Coach. Just telling the truth about how the one I had looked in person

My favorite is the calf hair in 17. Reminds me of a Celine. Simple but striking!

That being said, what I find is some “contemporary” brands offerings don’t lack style, but they many times lack quality. I remember when my mom carried Aigner and Coach and they were gorgeously made bags. She still has some and the leathers are scrumptious. Now, however, many comtemporary brands (and more and more the premier brands) are putting out pretty junk. And I don’t want the junk whether it’s $200 or $2000.

So, bottom line, I really, really like when you do these posts – my ire is directed at the manufacturers. We’ll just all have to inspect these bags and rely heavily on people reporting their experience with the various brands on TPF to know which are potential keepers.

I’ve had serious quality issues with three lightly used Chanel bags and have not bought new Chanel bags since.

Totally agree! I have now bought and returned 2 Madewell bags because I love the look, but the quality of the leather was so disappointing…

Love and look forward to these type of lists!! Several bags on here have caught my eye; the leather Dooney bucket is lovely, the Furla is so cute, the Fossil is a great Fall look and SURPRISINGLY, the Coach bag!! I am so loving their leathers recently! I was pretty well done with them several years ago when EVERYONE was carrying the jacquard versions but lately I’m taking another look or two–particularly this Ace bag!! Thanks Meg for this list of affordable bags! 🙂

Please look at the Duchess and the Madison May on http://www.indiahicks.com/rep/elizabethsans and check them out. They are well priced and attractive and even Hermes lovers like me have become converts!
