The spring season is in full bloom and we’re ready to pack up our boots and slip on our sling backs. Window-shopping season has officially begun and we can’t help but dream about owning that $3,000 dollar purse in the department store window. Well for now, that bag will stay a dream, but we have put a list together of some affordable alternatives that can become a reality!
Starting off the list is the Bottega Veneta Flap Messenger Bag in bright orange. At $1,980 it costs a little more than your average casual messenger bag you bring with you to the supermarket. The color and shape of the bag is gorgeous and orange is on the trendy list for this spring/summer. For a more affordable option, we have the Marc Jacobs Werdie Weavy Top Handle Messenger bag. At $428 it is much more practical. The green and beige make it a perfect fit for this coming spring!
The next item on our list is the Amelia Bijoux Mixed-Media Small Shoulder Bag by Chloé. This is the most beautiful $3,995 bag we have ever seen! The gold strap perfectly complements the push-lock flap and the black and white would match any outfit of ours! We would fit our iPhone, MAC lipstick, and Dior foundation perfectly in here! Back to reality however, Madewell made some great bags this year, and one of them is the lovelock mini bag. At $128 it is right up our alley of affordable and stylish! It comes in a bunch of great colors, but our favorite is the electric blue!
Third on our list are a pair of Anemone Lizard-Stamped Leather d’Orsday Pumps by Fendi. These black babies can dress an outfit up or down. At a staggering $890, they can either compliment a little black dress, or dress up an old pair of skinny jeans. We would love to prance around in these, but an almost identical pair can be found at Steve Madden. Steve Madden is always a great choice when picking out fab heels. We found a great alternative for this black Fendi pump, the Amplifyd black Bubuck platform by Steve Madden, now on sale for $114.98.
The Fourth and final item on our wish list is a pair of round acetate sunglasses from The Row. We have had our eyes on these for a while but at $430 we will have to wait. The round oversized frame compliments all face shapes and they would make any outfit look trendy. Sticking with the round trend, Urban Outfitters has a super chic pair of Valley Dreams Round Sunglasses, for only $16. These would look great with a tan and a sundress!
