10 Must-Have Designer Handbags Under $1000


fashion blogger mia mia mine wearing a wool anine blazer for fall As much as I love and adore designer bags, they usually come with an insane price tag – oftentimes ranging upwards of a few thousand dollars for the latest It-bag. That usually puts a cap on how many – and how often one can make the investment. So, it’s no surprise that I’m often asked about my recommendations on designer handbags under $1000. I’m happy to report that they do exist. You just need to know where to find them. Since that can be an entire journey and process in itself, I decided to round up 10 styles that aren’t too pricey but still deliver on style and functionality.
