Splurge vs Steal – Handbag Edition

I am a handbag junkie. It’s one of the few things that I’m not afraid to invest in. If you’re able to score a classic piece, it’s truly timeless. These are pieces that can be mixed and matched into many outfits that are both versatile and reflect your personal style. In this SvS post, I have searched high and low for the best handbags in the must-have shapes at prices that should suit an array of budgets.

 This shape is relatively new, yet still classic. These totes are able to hold all your belongings while remaining functional for everyday. I LOVE this oxblood color for fall.

 If there is one bag that will withstand the test of all fashion times, it’s this one. These bags are absolutely gorgeous and perfect for dressing up any outfit. I prefer black in this style but they’re available in so many colors.

 This is your everyday bag. The one you can throw in your phone, credit card, lip gloss, and keys and be out the door. The cognac color is rich and complements so many outfits.

 Ah, leopard. I just can’t quit you. Many of you will recognize this style, made famous by Clare Vivier. I think this type of bag is perfect for a night out, or even a casual daytime event. Its versatility is what makes it so great.

I personally cannot live without a weekender bag. I travel a lot and these types of bags are perfect for 2-3 day trips, hence the name. It’s big enough to store your needs for a quick trip, but small enough to throw in the car or fit under the seat in front of you. There are tons of color and material options but, in my opinion, you can’t beat black leather.
