Fabulous bags without breaking the bank

I love bags, always have.

I was raised surrounded by women who always had the best accessories, Chanel, Gucci Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton … to me this is what is ‘normal’

But then I started working, and realized I was never going to be able to get any of those on my tiny ‘normal’ salary!

Because I have always been obsessed with beauty and design, i have realized that you do not need to spend a fortune in order to have good quality, beautiful bags.

Here are a few of my picks, everything is under 500€, some I own, some I don’t yet, but they are definitely on my list!

I will not mention the obvious Micheal Kors, DKNY, or even Marc jacobs, Ralph Lauren etc.

They are fantastic brands, which we all know about, most of us owns at least a piece of each … so I’ve decided to focus on mid-range (affordable) brands you might not know about. I have focused on everything under 500€!

And YES! i have added, the links to the bags in the article, you know just in case you fall in love and need to have one of them

I personally just love the idea. Very decent prices as well.

so many options …
