Bag it Up

This is the story of the perfect bag found on a scrappy budget.

The setting is Target, March 2016. A young fashionista looking for a bag for spring without high hopes. She wandered through all the racks, thinking she had seen everything. A second hopeless pass and her attention was piqued. Golden chain, golden clasp, and a stunning brown. Could this be it? Could this finally be the bag.

Small enough to be unobtrusive. Large enough to fit all the essentials.

Yes, yes. This was the bag.

But for real, guys. This is the best bag. It looks just enough like a Chloe bag that it has fueled the “Mama wants a designer bag” vibes while actively preventing a splurge we just cannot afford right now. I’m in bag love.

  • This bag is stunning! I love the dress and the shade of your lipstick too. πŸ™‚ This is an all-round lovely look.

    • Hey thanks!!! I got the lippy as a sample. It’s NARS but I don’t actually know what the shade is called or anything so I didn’t list it. =

      • Ah, getting samples of high-end products is the best! NARS isn’t available in South Africa anyway so it’s maybe a good thing that I don’t know the name. πŸ˜€

  • Fun bag! Reminds me of the shape of a Chloe bag.

    • Thanks! I’m all about the budget finds.

  • Love it.

  • Great dupe! I love target for things like this. They’re products are pretty good!

    • Target is 100% my favorite for things like this. They’re my go to for on-trend items that don’t need to last more than a year, even though 9 times out of 10 they still last forever!

  • I love the brown color for this season! My bag is a MK and I still want to cry when I think of how much I paid for it! :'( lol

    • I’m in love with the color, too. It’s complimenting all my spring neutrals in the absolute best way!

  • Cute bag! Target has some really great options this spring. I have also featured them on my blog.

    • I’ll have to go check them out then!

  • I am picky like that too with bags- it cannot be too big and swallow me up and can’t be too small that I can’t fit my essentials. I am the pickiest with bags more than shoes, clothes, everything else. I have a million bags and most of them need to be donated to goodwill at this point/sold to ebay! Lol

  • That is a great bag! The color is perfect and it’s trendy, but still a classic. Target always has some good bags to be discovered.
