Ruffles Ruffles Ruffles! Ruffled Bags on the Cheap!

I'm on the prowl for a nice new handbag. My current go-to bag is looking a little grubby and some loser (moi) got blue ball point pen marks all over it. Ick. 

I am an AGONIZER, particularly when searching for expensive or semi-expensive items. It can take me months or even a YEAR to settle on a new handbag. I know -- annoying!

After asking Elizabeth from It's Unbeweavable to help me find a killer new handbag for under $500 (or WELL under $500!), she found this gem at Urban Outfitters for $68! $68! What a deal! CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!







To purchase, click here.

I ordered this bag in black. It is fun and affordable, and it will get me by until I figure out if I want to buy a more expensive bag. 

Check out Elizabeth's blog It's Unbeweavable. She is hilarious, fashionable, and FUN!

Who doesnt love Elizabeth, she's seriously awesome! I'm so jealous of yu ladies spending over $500 on a bag!! Wish i could do that but all mine are Guess or Juicy Couture so well under that price =) You'll have to take some snaps of you nd the bag xx

I don't need a handbag any time soon, but I'm with you on the agonizing. I need a new pair of glasses, I'm getting them in October, and I'm shopping now.

Felicia said...

UM, I've been eyeing this bag for months!!!! But the one that is TRULY on my list is the Deux Lux pintuck satchel in mustard. FOR REAL, I'm about to cave in and buy it. I say that because I used to work at Urban, so I know how shitty some of their stuff is!

Pen Pen said...

I LOVE Elizabeth!!!
AND--You should get the sage green one!!!

diane said...

I love it in peach. I was just on their website today, looking at swimsuits.

K.Line said...

Oh, I love seafoam. It looks so whimsical. Terrific choice.

Tikimama said...

$500!?! Working in the art world must pay! Can you get me a job, please?

I just had a hard time asking my husband for a bag that cost $38 for Mother's Day, then he went and bought me two, and I about had a heart attack.

WHAT is that adorable little donkey at the top right sidebar?? I want him!

Milly said...

Very cute! I was also on the hunt for a new handbag recently, and it took me soooo long to find one. (and to tell the truth I kinda ended up settling for one I wasn't totally in love with.) I may have to grab me one of these!

Tiffany said...

I HEART LIZ! And I heart that bag too! Preeetty!

TheBeautyFile said...

I love them!!

Diana said...

i love the minty one! this is perfect for the season. you have great taste, as usual!

creative kerfuffle said...

i so thought you were posting about potato chips : ) but, these bags are pretty! the pink one is cute but black is much more practical.

Kristin said...

Love love love that bag and Elizabeth for that matter. I fell in love with a layered Kate Spade this weekend but it's not in the budget right now. This is a fabulous alternative!

Gabbi said...

Great find! I'm the same way with bags... I've had the same one for almost 4 years now. It's a little worn now but I can't give it up until I find something that I love just as much. I've done that with the pen before too, the trickiest part was trying to casually carry it in a way that my arm covered the marks. :)

Sasha said...

love the bag!! great find!! and the price is fabulous!!!! I might get tempted!!

alissa said...

i LOVE it! especially the black - nice work!
now be careful with the pen!

Girl Japan said...

OHHHHHH I am so glad you posted this, I have been looking for the "petal" purse but not wanting to dish out the "dough" for that... can't this fits the bill or budget... haha THANK YOU

jambam said...

wow this bag is amazing!
i love your blog!

Carlotta said...

I love them all, they're wat better than the ruffled by prada or miumiu..great find!!

tnx a lot for your sweet comment :)

Rachel Follett said...

So cute! I want one in every color. Really really cute!

fhen said...

thankyou dear! i like moving on past high school too :)
wah that's truly a great deal, they are so pretty
i love the pale green one.
hmm...i think i need a new bag too. the one i'm using now is kinda bad looking already haha

Chris said...

I am strangely (or not so strangely) attracted to those ruffle-style bags. I first saw one about a year ago in a magazine and couldn't stop looking at it. Of course, that one cost a bit over $500 and I already have a thousand purses. But these are an excellent price! Hmmm.... :)

tanya said...

Love Elizabeth!! Love this choice as well--what a steal :-)

one little simitopian said...

Ohhh yes, black! I could dig one in a BRIGHT red too :)

LipstickOne said...

erin@designcrisis said...

Andhari said...

You need to invest in one of those classy quilted chanel purse that all celebrities wear a lot. LOL. Maybe the black or white one, I like this one the most http://www.edopter.com/images_user/ideas/200811/uGLaCL

Kellie said...

LOVE it! I love ruffles so that purse is perfect... I may just have to go order it NOW!!!

down and out chic said...

i think i'll take it in seafoam green (except i don't know if i can do ruffles). can i do ruffles?

Blair said...

What an amazing find! I have been admiring a purse that is similar but over $700!!

Danielle said...

I cannot tell you how many times I have brought that bag to the counter and then turned away and put it back and ALWAYS regret not buying it! Now after seeing the pictures of them again, I regret it EVEN MORE!!

ambika said...

Agreed, it's adorable. & what a price.

...love Maegan said...

I like the peach one.

clorivak said...

Winners alway carries really cool designer bags on the cheap! Thats where I get all mine...I looove my purses, the most I've paid is like $50. Screw paying full price, NEVER pay full price, there is just no need/

chloe said...
