Choosing a handbag on a budget

I don’t believe you have to spend a lot of money on a great handbag or clutch, you just have to be smart about choosing the right one! The biggest telltale sign of an inexpensive bag is cheap hardware! Trust me, nothing cheapens a bag faster than shiny buckles, flimsy studs and zips plastered all over it. Hardware is something you cant fake, so if you’re purchasing a bag on a budget, simply choose a one with either less hardware or make sure the finer details that look high quality. One of the best signs of quality is how the zipper opens and closes. The zipper should glide smoothly!

  • • Style doesn’t have to be expensive. Yeah I have some pricier pieces in my wardrobe, but I mix in some more affordable pieces like this dress from @paperkitesfashion • I bought it a few weeks ago now & cant remember the exact price but it was somewhere around the $59 mark! • #knitdress #melbournestyle #personalstylist #personalshopper #wearwhatmakesyoufeelgood
