See by Chloé Poya Scalloped Handbag Look For Less

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.

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

This trend alert goes out to our Twitter bud @Dorie87! She tweeted us, “@TheLooksForLess can you tell me where i can get this purse or something similar? nicole richie“. Dorie, we’ve got your bag, I mean back, on this one :).

In the spirit of music festivals that have gone on non-stop all spring and summer, a trend that is catching like wildfire is the beautiful bright bohemian handbags. The common theme amongst all of these bags is the patchwork fabrics and the fully saturated hues of reds, blues, and greens with occasional hints of yellow. These handbags vary slightly in style – some are tiered messenger style bags, while others are very large and covered in fringe. Each tote brings a little peace and love into our hearts.

These bright bohemian patchwork bags are popular amongst celebrities at the forefront of the hippie-chic movement including Nicole Richie, Kate Hudson, and Sienna Miller. Other celebs that love these bags are part-time hippies, yet full time trend setters, such as Miley Cyrus and Rachel Bilson. Of course, they all carry the high end totes such as the Halston Heritage Slouchy Canvas Sac Bag and the Simone Camille Carryall embroidered cotton bag, by Designer Simone Harouche, found at for $1,860!!! All of the Steals above are under $35!
