Chances are you have seen the new Chloe bags on every social media and high profile blogs lately. This season, Chloe, the leather masters, came out with beautiful and exquisitely designed handbags that truly do deserve the recognition it has been receiving, and I am sure they are worth its price tag of almost $2,000. With that being said, you still should ask yourself the question – “Is it worth it for you?”. In our humble view, not all designer $2,000 bags such as these necessarily deserve the same timeless and classic title such as Chanel quilted lamb-skin bags do.
As we endlessly repeat here at NOTTAG, don’t get us wrong, we love designer items as much as The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (ok, bad example), but above designer labels, we love fashion as a form of expression. Perhaps, a design may express well who you are, while it’s price tag doesn’t line up with your budget or personal belief, and that’s ok. But instead of reaching for the cheap knock offs, which we highly recommend you don’t, we guarantee you can find a similar style for much less, and that’s the promise we have here.
This week on Splurge vs. Steal, we tried to find you a handbag that is close in appearance and has the similar effect of the Chloe Faye Bag, which is absolutely stunning, but surely above the budget for a lot of us. We landed on the Sequoia Bag, currently on Bluefly for 65% off at $79.19, down from $225.
