Save, Spend, Splurge? The Chloe Crossbody

Save, Spend, Splurge? The Chloe Crossbody

My current bag obsession is the Chloe Drew Mini Crossbody Bag. For me, a crossbody bag is everything, and I am obsessed with this one… It’s kinda got that whole boho vibe going on, while still being a great looking bag that can be incorporated into many different looks. Of course, I like to aim for the stars and dream about the beauty of this bag, hoping that it will one day be mine. But I live in the real world, so in the meantime, while I’m dreaming, I’ve scoured the net to find fabulous alternatives. Which one is your fave? Take my poll at the end of this post Save: Woolworths Colourblock Crossbody Bag When I spotted this Woolies beaut, I was like….. hello lover! It’s totally cute and although the colour block is completely different to the Chloe one, it’s a bag I know I’ll wear to death! The bold lock and chain front trim reminds me of the Chloe bag, and I love that it looks similar, but isn’t a complete replica – I hate that! I’m all for buying the “more down to earth version” of a handbag, but even then, I want it to have it’s own look, and…

It’s all in the bag baby

It’s all in the bag baby

Remember “St Louise Vuitton” from Sex in the City – The Movie and her “rent a bag”? Well, I’m actually starting to think that it’s not such a bad idea at all. As I was paging through my magazine’s, looking for inspiration for my next column, I found this piece in a club magazine of some sort and thought to myself, I’d like to share this with our readers…. So here we go: “Handbags are the new shoes” “…marking the moment when handbags toppled shoes as the most important fashion accessory, the world’s most expensive bag – made from bits of 15 other bags – was unveiled in Europe, with a price tag of R350 000. The Louis Vuitton Tribute patchwork – which includes panels of rare feathers, coins, denim and fur –was recently hailed as the sign that handbags supplanted shoes as the ultimate fashion accessory.  The asymmetrical, quilt-like bag hit catalogues as UK retailers Selfridges reported that the average cost of designer bags had jumped 55% in two years-to an average of R12 000 per handbag.” Jaaits!
