Style Sunday | 5 Affordable Must Have Spring Handbags

 

As my wardrobe matures along with me, I understand the importance of cost per wear. I love the look and feel of a designer leather handbag, but I reserve those purchases for timeless pieces. When I want to update my wardrobe with trendy of the moment accessories I search for inexpensive options. The upside to the American consumer becoming health obsessed is that faux leather has improved in texture, quality, and durability. Goodbye pleather, Hello vegan leather!

The crossbody is to handbags what ready to wear is fashion. Sure you love your designer satchel, but it weighs you down when you’re running your errands. A crossbody with interesting details can spice up your off-duty weekend jeans and  t-shirt.

A Tote With an Attitude

A tote bag is an essential. What separates my favorite tote from all the other basic totes are the tassels! You probably saw this bag in a past Style Sunday. It caught my eye at TJ Maxx and when I saw the price tag I immediately bought it. I have searched high and low and have not been able to find it online. I have however found a great option from ASOS ($51.76).

Clutch on For Dear Life

What is it about a purse mostly reserved for cocktail hour that makes you want every cute one you come across.  Well, I found two clutches that have their fair share of cuteness that did not break the bank. This zip pouch ($16.99) from Target is colorful and full of potential it has  pockets on the inside for your credit cards to keep you organized. It’s small enough to toss into your everyday bag and carry after work to happy hour.Not only is this envelope clutch (DSW $34.95)the Pantone color of the year (FYI: rose and serenity are the colors for 2016) but it is ridiculously functional with storage in the fold over flap and the top zip pocket. It also has a detachable chain and can be worn as a crossbody bag, how is that for multifunctional..The clutch is from Urban Expression a brand that prides itself on offering quality vegan leather.

  2. They are all so cute! Love the color of the saddle bag from target! I think the brown one from Asos is my favorite! Love big purses!

    1. I love big bags too!! I ordered that ASOS bag for latter 🙂 thanks for reading!

  7. I love the brown one with the tassels. My local TJ Maxx stress me out but I seriously need to pluck from the patience tree and start shopping there.

    1. Go sporadically and when you’re not in a bind. If you go when you need an outfit to go somewhere TJ Maxx will frustrate you. Also I shop at different ones a different time because they all get det different merchandise.
