They say diamonds are a girl's best friend but I beg to differ. For a fashion girl, it is the king of accessories, the bag, that is my confidante. It carries all my personal essentials and secrets, empowers me and my outfit and stays by my side all day, every single day. So, you see, a trustworthy handbag is not only that, it is something you can't do without.
Whether you have just started working or have been a professional for a while now, shopping on a budget always seems to be a priority - and for good reason. However, while you save for bigger or better things, don't miss out on the glorious bags designers are putting out there. Sure, they are expensive, but that is why you have us! We have put together a list of chic bags, from everyday cute ones to novelty pieces, that would require you to save for 3-4 months or fewer to acquire them.
Unfortunately, not all affordable chic bags are available in India. In such times, I look to international websites where all these stunning numbers are from:
This black marvel has the signature Stella McCartney link chain detail - the only accessory you need to carry no matter where you're headed.
