Buy, Save or Dream – The Designer Handbag Edit

October 16, 2015 2 Comments




I used to aspire to owning a Michael Kors Designer handbag, I’m very lucky now to own one so these days you’re much more likely to find me lusting after a Chanel bag. I don’t know if this is because of the increase in bloggers buying Chanel and Chloe all over my twitter and instagram feed but for some reason I now covet a much higher end kinda handbag.  I’ll be honest though, although I might dream of owning a bag by one of these designers I don’t know if I could actually bring myself to spend this much money on one.

So that’s why this week I purchased a gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff black leather Love bag.  It’s the perfect cheaper alternative to the Chanel Boy bag and although it cost £200 its a snip compared to £3000.

But of course its all about choices and what each individual wants to spend but it got me thinking and so I thought I’d share my picks of the best looking bags from designer to High Street and the kinda bags I’d buy, the bags I’d save for and of course the bags I dream about! You’ll no doubt spot Chloe and Chanel in my choices but also mid range designers such as my fave Rebecca Minkoff and Michael Kors and for the purse friendly choices good old ASOS and Topshop. I hope you like my picks.

Let me know what kind of designer handbag you’re coveting and I’d love to know if you prefer to save or spend?

    Loved the way you did this with the dream, save, buy!
    I have just invested in a Mulberry Lily bag, I have wanted one for such a long time and then just bought it one day without thinking much about it. I do love it loads but I am slightly nervous about taking it outside anyone would think it was a baby … I’ve even named it! Haha!!

    The Chanel is the one I dream about but like you it’s just not budget friendly for me. I’ve just written a post on alternatives for the Chanel 2.55 because until the day I can afford it I need a more purse friendly alternative. Great post :) xx
