In this day and age, it seems like fashion and accessories are getting way more expensive. In fact, doesn’t it seem like everything is? Yeah, yeah, there’s inflation, I get it, but it seems like fashion has been out of control lately, and plenty of other things for that matter! I’ve been in the market for an apartment the last few months and having owned a house for the last decade, I can’t even believe how much rent has gone up! It’s INSANE!
As any fashionista knows, it can be hard to keep up with the trends, especially when it comes to purchasing a nice handbag that won’t break the bank. Handbags tend to be the staple of our wardrobes, the one piece we can all justify splurging on, knowing we will get more use out of it than anything else we wear. I’ve had my share of crappy handbags in the past, and I’ve also forked out way more than one ever should for one too! Sometimes it can be really hard to find that perfect balance of buying a nice quality handbag that is completely reasonable, and will be something you love and use for years to come!
I often find when you look for handbags in specific range, say from $75-$200, this can be really tricky to get the balance of a good quality handbag. Sometimes cheaper bags still have incredibly high markup. Some bags look at first glance like they might be better quality, only to have them break on you a few months later. Other bags are just basic and plain, bringing nothing new to the style table.
Last year, I got to try out a beautiful handbag (that falls in the price range above!) from Nicole Lee Handbags, and was so happy to see that I didn’t have to sacrifice quality or style when it comes to my Nicole Lee bag! (See my past Nicole Lee Handbag Review on the adorable yellow polka dot Dollhouse tote HERE.)
These bags are made to last! You can tell as soon as you pick it up, its going to keep going strong for years to come. The materials used on these bags are high quality, the bags look and feel fabulous in the hands, they have the most intricate, lovely hardware, and the bags are sewn nicely together as well. I loved that I had this tote bag from Nicole Lee Handbags to try out over the last year, and I could pack it around, shoving lots of things in it, and it has still held it’s shape, looks amazing, and is in perfect condition, even though its kind of been through hell and back since I got it!
The other really fabulous thing that totally sets Nicole Lee Handbags apart from the rest, is the complete fabulous uniqueness of these bags! You won’t see anything like them out there, whether it be on the streets or in the stores! These bags are designed to show off your unique personality, and boy do they ever! They are conversation starters for sure!
I recently got to try out a new handbag from Nicole Lee, and I have been so completely thrilled with it since it showed up! This gorgeous belt buckle-detail crossbody bag is so incredibly chic, and really amps up any outfit I wear it with!
To show you how well this beautiful bag adds style to anything, even your most basic casual weekend clothes, I styled it with some of my favorite pair of Jeans, and a basic sheer white tank top, and light blue boyfriend cardigan. The outfit itself is a bit on the plain side, but this handbag really amps up my look, wouldn’t you say?! (I wore it as a clutch here, thanks to the detachable shoulder strap it comes with)
