A Stylish Alternative For One Of The Season’s Best Designer Handbags

Handbags and shoes are fashion staples; they are the finishing touches of our overall look. There are a lot of gorgeous designer handbags and shoes, however, who wants to pay the high prices for these items? In this article I will highlight one designer handbag and a moderately priced comparable handbag. Both shoes to be profiled are inexpensive complimentary brands that can be worn with either the designer or moderately priced bag. You can click here to learn more about replicas. The website provide you the best collection of replicas. Be it bags, shoes, and heels. You get the best quality and the cheapest price of these products.


Coach’s Op Art Large Sabrina Convertible Satchel in Brass/Brown

This gorgeous designer handbag by Coach has a trendy Op Art pattern combined with classic construction to make this bag a lasting style for years to come. Priced at $398 it is a beautiful bag that is great to carry to work or around town. It can be worn as a satchel or shoulder bag depending on your mood. However, $398 is not very appealing price for the Budget Fashionista, so let’s find a comparable alternative.

The Rosetti Satchel

This beauty found at JCPenny stores while supplies last, is the budget friendly cousin of Sabrina. Originally priced at $48.00 the Rosetti Satchel fits the Budget Fashionista just fine. Though not a convertible like the Sabrina, the Rosetti Satchel can become one with a little DIY know-how.

  • Purchase a 21″ chain from an arts amp; crafts store or retail jewelry store
  • Two metal clasps big enough to hold two metal links
  • Attach the clasps to each end of the chain
  • Now clasp each end of the of the chain to the link on each side of the satchel
  • Voila you now have a Convertible Satchel that is perfect for the Budget Fashionista


No handbag is complete without a pair of shoes for the Budget Fashionista to strut her stuff in. No I am not going to profile a pair of Manolo’s or Nine West shoes. So breathe baby, come back to the world…

Looking fine in apt. 9 ®

I found a complimentary pair of pumps at Kohl’s for just $54.99, apt.9®Joon Metallic Dress Heels in Copper. This attractive heel is made from metallic faux-leather with adjustable T-strap for a custom fit. This shoe is even lightly padded in the foot bed for long wearing comfort.

Flexing those pretty feet in a smooth Merlot

While the apt. 9 Joon Metallic Dress Heels are not very expensive, I know there is an even better deal on a complimentary shoe for the Budget Fashionista to wear with our featured purses. The Lance Flex Point Patent Pump at Payless Shoe Source priced at $19.99 is an elegant alternative to the apt. 9® heels. This pump comes in a 3.5″ heel, padded insole, and flexible outsole. This dress shoe in merlot is a great match for the Rosetti Satchel.

Now you have your choice on what to spend your money on. If you prefer the designer bag with any of the two shoes then be prepared to part with between $452.99 – $417.99. This Budget Fashionista is going for the designer look sans the price. JCPenny and Payless here I come!

Happy Holidays!
