See by Chloé Poya Scalloped Handbag Look For Less

I am obsessed with all things Chloé and the Poya Handbag is no exception. The scalloped handbag is from Chloe’s more affordable line, See by Chloé, however the $395 price tag is still out of my budget.

Luckily, Handbag Heaven has an amazing alternative, the Lilly Mini Shoulder Bag available in berry pink and jade green, for only $42.46. I LOVE the bow detail on the shoulder strap. It’s so fun and unexpected.

So what do you think of this scalloped handbag? Is this a style you would try?

Fendi Anna Colorblock Shoulder Bag Look For Less

Steal the Real – Fendi Anna Colorblock Shoulder Bag

The Fendi Colorblock Piccolo shoulder bag is so fun for fall/winter, but the price tag is a little (a lot) out of my price range! This satchel retails at Barney’s New York for $2,050! I don’t think I could ever add anything to my wardrobe that has a price tag with a comma in it lol. Luckily, has an amazing look for less for only $40.76, for a difference of $2,010 from the real!

The Bella Colorblock Satchel, available in brown or gray, has retro inspired details, a simple satchel shape with a foldover top flap, and a shoulder length strap. This soft leatherette bag’s colorblock design mixes contrasting colors in chic exotic croc leatherette. A silver metal and enamel faux buckle detail hides the magnetic snap front closure and an exterior back pocket fully zips to keep your cell phone safely stowed.

Bags Bonanza Handbags Look For Less

The Breakdown

I just discovered Bags Bonanaza and it was love at first browse. I really didn’t know much about the site, so I decided to dive right in and quickly realized that it is very similar to Ebay, but better! Bags Bonanza is an online marketplace for buying and selling handbags faster, while having more fun.

The feature that I like best about Bags Bonanaza is “the obvious”, it’s all about handbags. Unlike Ebay, if I do a search for a particular type of handbag, I’m not going to get some sort of weird result from the housewares department. The interface is so user friendly – all the information I need is so easy to find and their search and browse features are super easy to use. Additionally, I know that they sell new and used handbags, but I didn’t see any washed up old handbags that looked like a purse someone couldn’t get rid of at a garage sale. I also feel protected with the seller ratings and feedback.

The super hot style right now is to accessorize with bright bold colors, so I picked a few handbags that are right on trend including a Mariposa Orange Pleated Satchel, the Big Buddha Yellow Shoulder Strap Tassel Handbag, a vintage Coach Soho Waverly Tote, a bright Green & Gold Envelope Clutch, and a beautiful Rebecca Minkoff Purple 3-Zip Rocker.

Interested in selling a handbag? Here are 7 great reasons to sell on Bonanza:

  • Free listings – It’s free to list on Bonanza. Yes. Always.
  • Low fees – Sold an item? You keep about 97% of the money.
  • Free distribution – Every item you post is sent directly to Google and Bing.
  • Free sales consultation – We have real humans available to help you sell, fast.
  • Checkout options – Use PayPal, Google Checkout, or both.
  • Bonanza-only features – Every store has built-in chat, customization available.
  • Relentless simplicity – We obsess over “the small stuff” to keep selling painless.

The Breakdown

In the spirit of fall just around the corner, everyday this week I’ll be covering a fall trend and offer several options per each trend. For Day 1 of our 5 day fall trend series, we will cover the oh so popular must have trend, structured handbags. The days of the hobo are not long gone just yet, but an emerging style that I am seeing everywhere is the more structured handbag. I love the clean lines and it looks a bit more polished and professional – the type of bag that can easily go from day to night seamlessly.

Structured handbags have a lot less bells and whistles than the popular hobos celebrities have carried for the past several years – less pockets, zippers, and embellishments on the outside and they are a lot less “slouchy” in shape. I did a Steal the Real recently (item 2 above) on the Hermes Birkin, a beautiful handbag that fits this trend perfectly, and saw Rachel Zoe carrying it the same day on her premier episode of The Rachel Zoe Project.

I found all of the above options at one of my favorite “looks for less” merchants, I used mostly neutral options in my style board above; however, most of these bags come in several different colors, so make sure you check them out by clicking on the links below. What do you think of the structured handbags? Would you wear this emerging trend?

  1. Ivory Studded Satchel – $45.86
  2. Lock & Key Shoulder Bag – $46.41 (last seen here)
  3. Faux Ostrich Bag – $40.76
  4. Broad Ripple Satchel – $45.86 (last seen here)
  5. Woven Messenger Satchel – $50.96
