Handbag Splurge vs. Steal

It's that time of year when we start retiring our summer clothes and shoes and get in FALL mode.  No secret around here that I am drinking Pumpkin Spice Lattes and wearing way too hot scarves like it is my job.  One thing you can't forget is to change out your handbag too!!!

So let's talk handbags. Purses. Pocketbooks.  The one thing that I a sucker for is a good handbag. The one thing that I am willing to spend way too much money on is good handbag.  I admit it. I am somewhat of a bag snob.  I don't splurge on shoes and jeans, but I will spend too much on a purse.  I can't sit here and validate why you should to because it is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine.  No reason other than, it's my thing.  I think it is in my DNA because my mother has designer purse collection that most women would give their right arm for, like for real. AMAZING....

Fortunately, I have been gifted with GORGEOUS bags from my husband, most recently last Fall when he bought me the dark green 3.1 Phillip Lim large Pashli satchel as a congrats for my promotion.  Talk about "pick me up off the floor" when I got that beauty!!  He had help along the way and was pointed to what I wanted, before you think  Shane Brown has some insane handbag taste :).

So I usually get a new bag every season, but this year I am sticking with my green one from last year as I just can't top it yet!  So since I can't shop, I am going to help y'all :).  So first, below are the splurge purses that I have drooling over.  I mean, Fall colors are my jam.  These dark reds, camels, greens, and navy's are what my dreams are made of these days!!  Here are some of my picks (large, medium and even some smaller clutches/crossbody's) from my favorite high end purse designers...





Now for some of you that may have had a heart attack or spit your diet coke at my screen at the sight of those prices - I found some steals too!! Y'all. These bags below from F21, H&M, and Target are fabulous and look SO similar to the high end above!  I would totally rock that burgundy F21 Pashli knock off at the bottom of the collage for $32.90!!  And that H&M black fringe?!? I may actually order that one!!!  These are great and all available online...


So, once again, I am here to tell you there is no reason why you can't look FABULOUS...all the way down to the handbag that you have packed way too full, has either melted lip gloss or a milk cup spilled in it, thrown in your driver's seat, or being dragged by your toddler. Nope. You can rock it ALL DAY LONG!

Let me know if you have any questions, especially before you spend some major bank on a splurge bag - trust me when I tell you that between all the women in my family, we can help you with any questions or decisions :).  Happy Shopping!!
