HIGH END VS. LOW END BAG OPTIONS


Happy Memorial Day, Everyone!

Wanted to do a high end vs. low end post all about bags since I've seen so many lovely options out there! Plus, I like to show how you can create a similar look without as high a price!

Please know that I do not support handbags that are made as copies and sold as fakes with the fake label, etc. because designers, no matter the price, work hard to gain the success they have and they deserve to have that.

However, I am okay with finding similar items for less, items that might have gotten inspiration from a designer piece, but are their own with slight differences that follow the trends and what is popular.

That said, here are some options of just that below!

  4. Would be nice to find a Birkin bag at $4,525 but I have never heard of such price point even for a pre-owned one. All of the authenticl Birkins are listed at $8000 and up so $4k is like half the price. The look alike versions are cute.

  5. The Birkin has been my favorite bag for a couple years now. The one I want is actually more than $30,000 (!!!) so until I save up for that one, I'll be looking into those! Nice post!

  7. Well, I have to say that I love love love my Louis Vuitton that I got for Mother's Day! I went with the bigger one, carried it for 20 minutes and decided I wanted the little back and they wouldn't exchange it! They said it had wear on it! Crazy, but hey, I can carry stuffed animals, coloring book and crayons, or my camera! I love it. I would never in a million years pay that kind of money for a bag, but the hubs did and I am not going to give it back!!! I have always wanted one and I will carry it until I die. Heck, I may just be buried with it!! Have fun with your parents!

  13. I could never spend $4k on a bag... I'd rather have 50 lower end ones :)

    I really like the forever 21 bag... cute and cheap!
