I have been handbags obsessed since I can remember. I’ve always enjoyed taking my outfit up a notch with a great bag. I am attracted to bags with hefty price tags and can’t always justify the price so it led me to go on the hunt for some great cost effective pieces. I know Designer bags are often coveted but, not everyone can afford them. I have found some awesome dupes for some of the most sought after styles. Some of them are almost identical and others are similar in shape but not necessarily the EXACT same color or pattern. I hope you enjoy these finds as much as I do!

You can reinvent yourself as often as you want…
I don’t know about y’all but usually every year when the seasons change I have a sort of wardrobe/product crisis and find myself loathing everything I own. The newest styles and trends are revealed and I hear this tiny bird on my shoulder saying “revamp and reinvent yourself”. Translation – “Empty your bank accounts and live on the minimum to stay alive”. There is nothing wrong with wanting a new look except that it usually comes with an obnoxious price tag and when you do it as often as I do, theres little time to save up for the next bird on your shoulder. As we begin to see warmer weather here, in the South, this very familiar urge is upon me. I spend my time imagining days without the tax of scrambling for the perfect outfit or makeup look. If only it were that easy. Lately, these are the items in my hypothetical shopping cart.
Gucci Dionysus Suede Shoulder Bag $2,500 : Asos Millie Mackintosh Rik Rak Mini Dress $145 : Quay X Amanda Steele Muse Sunglasses $60
Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn Kristie Buckle Heel $140 : Rolling Stones 1975 Thermal Top $49 : Junk Food The Who Tour Tee $45
Free People Embroidered Austin Dress $145 : Asos Ryder Suede Buckle Ankle Boots $111 : Asos Embroidered Swing Folk Dress $77
Vince Camuto Tarita Cut-Out Lace Up Sandal $128.95 : Tods Small Wave Bag $2,165 : Steve Madden Rizzaa $79.95
I hope y’all have enjoyed a peek into my current wish list items! What is everyone else crushing on these days?
