Hi! This weekend we went and got pumpkins for our front porch. Too soon? Maybe, but they’re cute! Our son is almost two, so pumpkins are a new and exciting thing for him! The look on his face pretty much summarizes how I feel about these handbags! I’ve been waiting patiently to share these designer dupes with you.

Designer & Dupes
Do you like designer bags? Me too! They’re pretty!
Do you like to save a little money? Me too!
Ahhh, the feeling of getting something great at an amazing price! There is nothing like it.
Just to bring everyone up to speed on what a dupe is… So I like this red designer bag from a runway show, but I could never afford it. A local clothing store sells something very similar to that runway bag and I buy that instead. The look-a-like bag from the clothing store is a dupe! It could almost be mistaken for the runway bag, it is the same color and has similar features. Make sense?
Look at the bags below, they are all gorgeous. Column one are all designer bags, column two and three are dupes. Just take that in for a moment before I spill some more tea. haha

Column 3 bags are all under $30.
You read that right. I ordered all 5 bags in column 3 for under $100! When I ordered the red bag, it was on sale for $10! Sadly, it is now going for $25.. but that’s still pretty great in my opinion. Now let’s take a look at each style. Scroll all the way to the end to see how I styled 3 of these bags.
Red Satchel: Designer, Designer clutch, Dupe, Dupe Under $30
First, the color. It is heavenly. The under $30 bags appears to be bright red in the photos online, however I would call it a burnt brick red in person. Still gorgeous. It comes with the cutest leopard print clutch, making this an even better find! Second, how perfect is this satchel for bringing to the office? When I was working at a fancy office I had a large tote bag for pretty much everything: computer, wallet, keys, shoes, workout clothes (we had a gym on-site), everything.. it was in that bag. Well, then someone would schedule a lunch and there I was juggling my wallet, keys, phone, employee badge, and chapstick to to lunch. HAHA. This bag is the perfect addition to your office computer bag or tote bag. It is not too big and fits daily essentials. I would even use this to dress up any weekend outfit.
Black Bucket: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30
That Gucci bag though… googly eyes. This style is perfect for everyday use, when you don’t have a lot of things to carry around. It is the perfect size for a phone, small wallet, ear buds, keys, lip gloss, and a spare mask. The under $30 bag comes with two detachable straps, one for crossbody and one for handheld. There is no zipper on this bag, just a magnetic button closure and cinch tassel. When I am in a hurry to change bags, this will be my go to, and I won’t have to worry about it going with whatever outfit I have on since it is black.
Green Chain-Link: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30
Loving the color of this designer bag… really thought green wasn’t my color, but it has been catching my eye a lot lately. This is another bag that is perfectly sized for all of your essentials and the chain-link detail adds trendy flare to it. Honestly, I almost prefer the acrylic chain of the under $30 bag. Whenever I have something metal dangling around, it is so easily scratched or the metal scratches things: like my screen protector. The acrylic chain also complements the color of the purse without being too contrasting.
Scrunchie Hobo: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30
Effortless and creamy is how I would describe this bag. I love each version shown. I got the under $30 bag from Walmart, msrp on the tag says $98, so this is a great quality find! The fabric is very soft and the interior fabric is the prettiest blue paisley. This one has a zip closure. Did you check out my last post on earth tones? This item would go great with a lot of pieces highlighted in that post!
Computer Tote: Designer, Dupe, Dupe Under $30
Let’s talk office bags again. This one is important. The under $30 bag is really grate for the price. It has a magnetic button close, exterior pocket; 4 interior pockets, 1 snap close for laptop, 1 interior side zipper, 1 middle section zipper, and 2 open side pockets for phone, pens, etc. This bag comes with a lot and is great if you are only going into the office periodically, as many people are these days.
