Since I have an outfit post scheduled for this Friday, I'm sharing another Save vs. Splurge edition today instead, this time focusing on handbags. As you all know, I always preach the importance of investing in quality items for the long haul, especially with handbags and shoes in classic shapes, colors and styles. There are times though where we just want something in the moment and know that it will take a lot of time to save up for the more expensive designer version. If you're just starting out in the workforce, have a minimal budget or aren't looking to splurge on a new handbag, but really need one, I'm showing you where you can get the look for less, more specifically under $100, with many under $50!

Over the past year, I've developed a love for Chloe handbags, so I've featured 3 different styles here today. They're always elegant and modern, perfect for a classy woman. They come in a variety of colors, so if you like the shape but the color I've shown isn't your favorite, click through and see the many others colors available! I'm so glad I was able to find such close matches, I mean that Drew crossbody bag dupe looks nearly identical and it's great to see so many color options! I always get so excited when I can find a replica and love that this one is leather too! You all know by now that I have a thing for clutches, so I had to include a couple favorites in the mix.

You may have seen me post this image below on Instagram or Facebook, I was pretty excited when I saw this Givenchy duplicate and I know it won't last once everyone else discovers it too. ;) I wanted to point out how the less expensive bag has a beautiful zipper detail and quilting on the front which I love! The back looks nearly identical to the designer version, it can be worn either side front/back and in the crook of your arm, on your shoulder or cross-body via the strap (I do that a lot when I'm in an airport or carrying Lily). Feel free to share this image below of pin it to Pinterest for future reference but this bag won't last long!
