The Look for Less: Fendi s/s 2011 Handbag

If you like the look of this bag from the Fendi s/s 2011 collection (first mentioned here), you can have it for a lot less than the original $2900 Fendi price tag. Asos provides two very fashionable options, the Asos White Miller Bag and the Asos White Sorrell Bag, priced at approximately $253 and $105 respectively. Though made in solid colors, as opposed to the color-blocking of the Fendi bag; and missing the crocodile accent--both leather bags mimic the shape and size of the Fendi nicely. Each also has the same fold-over closure, and buckled shoulder strap. With the s/s 2012 fashion season having recently concluded, this is the perfect time to start updating your spring/summer 2012 wardrobe, for less, with one of these fashionable and functional options.

Love. Want. Need. - The Fall Handbag Edition

I’m feeling the itch for a new bag for fall…something huge, something slouchy…something with hardware. Normally, I’ll go for a neutral black or brown in the fall, but this year, I might also like something a little brighter. I am fancying a bevy of bold and richly colored bags, and amidst my online crushing, I’ve noticed a trend--it would seem I am most enamored with satchels in a variety of textures and colors, like the lovelies above. 

Is it just me, or is this dominating shape for fall very reminiscent of the ever-evolving Proenza Schouler PS1 (mentioned here)?
