2 Spring Handbags That Will Go With Everything + Last For Decades

1. The Sophia  Handbag

I'm so excited for the warm weather to finally arrive. Unfortunately, it's still quite cold here in Philadelphia but to prepare for spring, I'm featuring two handbags that will go with literally any spring outfit. The Sofia (above) and Camila (below), both by Alisn Lee, are my top handbag picks this season! It's clear that the white color and minimalist design makes these handbags about as versatile as you can get. While simple, these bags feature unique shapes and straps that give them spunk. Take for example the Sofia purse, which has a box design and a light pink/white reversible strap. Meanwhile, the Camila is a soft edged square with the cutest ruffle strap ever. And although they seem small, these purses fit all the essentials (A.K.A. my iPhone 8 Plus, a small wallet, and lip gloss). Lastly, I adore these handbags because of the impeccable quality with which they are made. Both bags are crafted with incredibly soft genuine embossed python leather and are lined with a durable linen material. Honestly, I have not used any other purse since receiving these beauties in the mail and I think that just about sums it all up!

Designer Looks For Less - 4 Products Under $40

1. Classic Maxi Dress

The black, sleek, maxi dress is an elegant look that many designers include a variation of in their collections -- take this MIU MIU Silk Dress for example. But instead of spending over $1,000 on a dress, I'm sharing with you guys this Front Slit Maxi Dress which is only $34 (with code DA50) from Tobi, an affordable online shop that always has the latest fashion trends! 

 

2. Long-sleeve Ribbed Turtleneck

Ribbed turtlenecks continue to be a popular fall item. With long sleeves and a slim fit design, the turtleneck can be both flattering and on trend. This Vince Long-Sleeve Turtleneck Sweater is everything we could ever want in a turtleneck, except that it's over $100. If you're trying to not break the bank with this purchase I highly suggest this H&M look-alike, which is only $9.99. 

 

3. Faux Leather Metal Ring Bag

Handbags with metal ring detailing have taken the fashion industry by storm, with Chloé being one of the largest contributors to this trend. While some of these designer handbags can cost thousands of dollars, I found this incredibly stylish Faux Leather Metal Ring Crossbody, at Zaful, for only $20.99, a fraction of the cost! That being said, this purse is not made with real leather or to the same standards that a designer handbag would be made. But for the price, this handbag is more than worth it, I can assure you! 

 

4. White Tennis Sneaker

Every fashionista has a white tennis shoe nowadays, and with good reason. They are trendy, comfortable, and go with just about everything. While I would love a pair of $600 Gucci kicks, the Adidas Stan Smith is a much more affordable option. What's more is that instead of purchasing a 7.5 women's shoe, I went with the identical "big kids" shoe in a size 5.5 instead, bringing the price down about $20!

 

And there you have it, 4 trendy products for under $40, because you doesn't love a good buy right?! More designer-dupes to come on BTFL, so stay tuned!
