Handbags to Save and Splurge On

My Favorite Handbags: Designer and Dupes 

A few weeks ago, I asked you guys what you wanted to see a blog post on next. Every single time I do this, I get the most fun and creative ideas that I honestly would have never thought of (so thanks for that)! My top request almost every single time is either for statement earrings or designer dupes. However, I got one request that was my favorite so far 😍One of my followers was looking for a new handbag but couldn't decide if she wanted to save and go with a designer dupe or splurge on her dream bag. Let's be honest... we all have that thought from time to time when shopping! So with that being said, I thought it would be a great idea to share ALL of my favorite handbags that I have splurged on and saved on. Whether your price range is within $100 or "the limit does not exist," there will be something for you! 

Let's go ahead and splurge shall we?

First, I am going to share with you the handbags that I have splurged on over the years! One day I promise to share my entire handbag collection but for now I'm just going to pick my favorites. 

The cream of the crop... LOUIS VUITTON. A little back story on my first Louis.... 
For my 21st birthday, my dream was to not only celebrate in New York City but also to purchase my very first Louis Vuitton handbag while I was there. Now I know expensive handbags aren't for everyone so bear with me. I don't know what it is about these bags but they are just the bags of all bags in my opinion. I know I'm not the only one who thinks so. Anyway, thanks to my Mom, I was fortunate enough to be able to celebrate my 21st birthday in NYC with her and several of our best family friends! Long story short... on the Upper East Side (where are my Gossip Girl fans at?!), we found a high end consignment shop and I purchased MY DREAM BAG 😍I got the classic LV monogram Speedy 30 and you better believe I was IN HEAVEN. Funny how things work out because guess who carries my Speedy more than I do now... my Mom 😂

A few of my favorite pictures from our trip back in 2015:


The bag I purchased in NYC (seen here):

My next favorite bag that I splurged on was my Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM. This bag is hands down the BEST bag I've ever owned. Yes, it's VERY pricey as I'm sure you all know but it's totally worth it because they last forever. 

NOW... if you don't want to splurge AND you don't want to buy a dupe version, I have THE bag for you. My Barrington St. Anne Tote is an amazing alternative to purchasing a Louis Vuitton. They even have two different checkered prints that you can get for a similar LV look! Jacob bought me the darker version several years ago and then I got the lighter version this year. It's actually even bigger than the LV Neverfull so I sometimes use it as a work bag too (for my laptop, planner, etc).

Less of a splurge... but still a splurge (Tory Burch)

If you guys haven't noticed, I LOVE Tory Burch. I have several of her handbags and I have yet to be disappointed when splurging on one! No they are no where near as pricey as a LV, but they can still be a little bit expensive.

My first favorite is my Robinson crossbody (first). It also comes in a mini wallet version that is $100 less (second)! 

Next is my newest addition 😍which is the Tory Burch Kira Camera Bag! I bought mine in the blush pink color but it comes in several other options (yellow, white, etc). 

 Handbags you DON'T have to splurge on:

This monogrammed Coco tweed handbag is one of my absolute favorites! If you're a fan of monogrammed items, then this is the bag for you. Plus it also comes in a new gorgeous pink version and who wouldn't want a pink handbag for traveling this Summer?! 

This next crossbody is my favorite designer dupe find ever! It's UNDER $30 and comes in 3 different LV look a like prints. 

Last but not least is the MUST HAVE bamboo bag for Spring and Summer! This is the Amazon dupe version (for the original that almost $200) that you NEED now.

  1. Can you tell me where you got your pink and green sweater from? Love them!

    1. Thank you so much! They are both old and unfortunately no longer available but this one is very similar in both colors https://rstyle.me/+a6YIZXKb0t_FfvuVtChY3A
