Steal vs. Splurge: Handbag Edition

There couldn’t be a better post for a drab Monday than this one! I’m here to share this steal vs. splurge edition on some cute handbag finds. For me, I cannot justify spending thousands on multiple handbags. I also wanted to focus on neutral handbags that can be carried during different seasons and on many different occasions.

**Disclaimer: I am not hating on those with designer handbags. I am not in a place where I can afford multiple designer bags, so I wanted to share some that look similar and are super affordable.**

First up, the timeless┬áblack handbag. This bag is super cute and I’ve had my eye on it for a while. I cannot afford a huge $1390 price tag, so I found a similar bag for just under $25! I really like the gold accents on this bag as well.

Next, this blush pink handbag is adorable and will transition well into spring. It looks like a “camera” bag to me. I remember people several years ago carrying their cameras in bags like these. I really like the gold chain on this steal bag that I found for $20!

Last up is this cute saddle bag. This luggage color is classic and would work well year-round. Definitely can’t see myself paying $1395, but this similar look is only $23! The tassel is ADORABLE, too!

I hope you enjoyed seeing these great deals I found on similar bags. My favorite place to find affordable handbags is here! Maybe one day I will be able to afford a “splurge” like this, but for now these “steals” will do!

Thanks for reading & let me know what steals you have found recently!

Tory Burch, $295

However, I just cannot bring myself to spending that much on them (nor can I afford to).

*Just to make it clear, I LOVE Tory Burch & everything she is about; however, at this time, I cannot afford shoes like these.*

But have no fear ladies, I was on the LOFT website and headed to the shoe section to find today’s steal!

LOFT, $35.70 (on sale!)

They are not the exact same, but they are definitely close! AND how about that price tag? You can’t beat that!

Steal vs. Splurge: Nude Ballet Flats

Hey everyone! I’m back today with a super great find for you! Today’s steal vs. splurge post is on a fabulous pair of nude ballet flats. I LOVE a great pair of flats that I can throw in my bag if I need to change out of a super cute (but not as comfortable) pair of shoes!

I have been obsessed with these Tieks for a while now…

These are the perfect go-to flats! However, they are $195 & are today’s splurge. Don’t get me wrong…I love everything about this shoe except the price tag. However, I was on the Bloomingdale’s sale section tonight and found tonight’s STEAL:
