I probably don’t need to sell you on a good, affordable fall find, but what I will tell you is that while tops, jackets, and sweaters are usually easy to come across at low prices that don’t match their luxe appearance, cheap-but-expensive-looking handbags are not always as readily available. I don’t know why, but something about purse shopping on a budget is just harder than other categories. Unless, of course, you shop all day for a living—then finding even 27 of them is a breeze. Well, maybe not as effortless as I’m letting on, but nonetheless I made it happen!
From little party purses to everyday work handbags and everything in between, I’ve found the most amazing under-$150 bags on the internet that look anywhere from double to, dare I say it, 10 times their price tags. To shop all my fall-ready picks, sourced everywhere from Zara to Barneys, just keep scrolling.
