Today I’m talking about why I love Guess handbags so much, as opposed to the LV, YSL, Gucci, or Chanel bags, etc.
Obviously, the higher-end “investment” bags are just that; an investment. A LARGE investment if you’re like me, going to school full-time and all your money goes straight to bills. Of course, I would LOVE to have a $1300 handbag, but that’s not even possible for me for probably several years.
BUT GUESS WHAT! You don’t have to sacrifice fashion because you’re a hard-working girl on a budget! That’s a core message I want to share on my blog. You can be fashionable and look like you’re rocking high-end outfits without spending tons of money.
That brings me to my oh-so-beloved Guess handbags. As you know, I am a vegetarian. I have been my entire life, and it’s due to my HUGE love for animals. The problem with higher-end bags, even Coach or Michael Kors, is that they are made with real leather. For most people, that’s what they want. I don’t.
It is SO hard to find cute, affordable bags made with no animal products. Fortunately, Guess offers tons of handbags that are faux-leather! You can’t even tell the difference.
On top of being super cute and faux-leather, they are also SUPER affordable! I just snatched three new bags from their end of season sale and spent $120 in total.
It takes a lot for me to fall in love (head-over-heels) for a purse. But when these new babies arrived, I was THRILLED! Today I’m showing off my new Cate Saddle Cross-Body in Tomatoe. Originally priced at $60.00, I got it for $30.00! Half-priced? I’ll take it!! Keep an eye out on the blog for my other new bags!
