I would think for those of you who have been following me and my blog for a while you know I am a handbag obsessed girl! I mean I was a brand ambassador for Henri Bendel after all and for those of you who are new here, Hi, My Name is Danielle and I’m a Handbag-aholic! I am the kind of girl who would buy a new handbag every payday if I could , hell I’d buy a 1 handbag I really love in every color of I could and I thought to myself why not put together an affordable handbag list! Nothing to intense, just a list of 3 Affordable Handbags I think are too perfect for every girl not to have in her closet! If you’re interested in my list then keep reading!
Coach Parker Bag
“The Day to Night Bag”
From the moment I first saw this handbag last year I knew a needed it. It reminded me of a mix between a Gucci Dionysus and a Chanel. The perfect marriage between the two actually, I’m a black handbag kind of girl and this back came in the all black smooth leather with the antique gold hard ware and an eye catching burgundy velvet interior. This bag in my opinion is perfect for every day and evening – it makes the perfect transition! When looking inside you have 2 pockets that are separated making organization fairly easy. Additionally for the price point of under $400 I think this is a steal for the design and the quality.
Marc Jacobs Snapshot Bag
“The Edgy Cross Body”
Now in my opinion this bag is super cool! Everyone needs one, mine is a color blocked version with a killer guitar strap but the bag can be purchased in a more simple look. This bag is another one of those bags that can be purchased for under $400 and has great craftsmanship. I think every girl should have a more fun and egdy cross body bag in her closet that’s for those essential only days. I use this bag when I knew Jeff and I are headed out and all I’m going to need is my card holder, sunglasses lip balm and maybe some cash! My camera definitely won’t fit into this handbag and my cellphone just fits depending on how things are packed but for the look this really is the perfect cross body for those lighter days!
Coach Parker Backpack
“The Everyday Bag”
I’m normally not an everyday backpack wearing type of girl however when I saw this Coach Parker Backpack I was completely obsessed and literally went out and bought it the next day! (would’ve went that same night but mother nature was getting the best of me!) Not only is this bag super chic but it’s so versatile. It can be held by the top chain , worn as a backpack and clipped and worn cross body. My personal favorite ways to wear are as a back pack and by the top chain handle. I think this backpack is the perfect dupe for the Chanel Backpack that we can see on bloggers like Emily Ann Gemma and Jerusha Couture without the budget breaking price tag and you’re still getting amazing quality! I personally have the larger of the two sizes and find it can hold my monthly bag (only in my handbag when mother nature calls), my LV cosmetic bag, sunnies in a case, my card holder and my LV 6 ring key holder! I definitely see myself bringing this on trips for years to come (because my camera SonyA5000 definitely fits in it and it’s not heavy!
