Affordable Print and Multi-Colored Handbags

I really don’t like to spend a lot of money on handbags, but I also don’t like those pleather bags with that ugly, plastic garbage bag look to them (you know the kind that Target sells). I try my best to find a happy medium: An affordable bag that looks good and has nice detailing to it. That’s a serious challenge if you trying to stay under $65 dollars. I purchase bags to change out with different outfits so I hardly ever carry the same handbag or clutch more then once a week.

I like to switch my bags up to match my oufits, so I need a lot “fashionable handbags” to go with certain shoes in different colors, patterns etc. That’s where it would be impractical to purchase handbags priced in the hundreds of dollars. I do have about 7 or 8 really good coach and perlina bags in my arsenal that are large totes, briefcase, laptop kind of bags when I need durability for work or travelling purposes…..

But the bulk of my bags would be more fashion/outfit related. Bags with a lot of personality that can add some “pop” to my outfit or be used as an accent color if my belt and shoes are neutral. I found two great bags at Handbag Heaven. I need to add more print and a few multi-colored bags to my collection. I have too many solid colored bags and I wanted to mix-up a little bit. Each bag was under $48 dollars. They have some great quality bags at budget-friendly prices and their having a sale right now on all their bags (15% off).

Love, love, love this bag. It’s a canvas metallic thread giraffe print. Detailing, hardware and weight on this bag is so exceptional! Looks more expensive then it’s price tag.

I like the funky-ness of this bag. I needed a big, boho, slouchy kind of woven bag to carry around when I’m wearing jean, a poncho, cords, etc. on the weekends. I plan to replace the existing handle with thick chain links just to give it more of an edgier feel.

    I love the woven bag. So chic. I have to say that is the one part of my wardrobe where I seem to have no imagination. Handbags just baffle me. It is always so nice to see the way you mix and match yours.

  3. I have never been a fan of animal print anything but that giraffe print looks NICE.

    I agree that hardware makes a big difference. If it was plastic hardware.. back on the shelf it goes.

    yummy post honey! the giraffe print is super duper fun! a girl can never have too many bags.

  9. I completely share your style philosophy when it comes to bags. I tend to get tired of accessories quickly. What seems to work for me is having one expensive ‘investment’ bag that I know will serve me for years and will go with everything and also having several inexpensive ones that I can alternate depending on my mood. Love the review!

    It really is hard to find a nice, stylish, inexpensive yet not cheap looking bag. My sister and I had this same discussion not too long ago at Target. Some, not all-but some of those bags feel like I straight made them in arts and crafts class. Horrible quality-for $20 I’d rather put $20 more into it and get something that actually feels right.
