While I consider myself a woman of many purses (most of them vintage), I do think there’s something to say about owning an iconic designer purse that will remain a classic for years to come. While buying one full price would require me to skip out on my gym membership, cappuccinos, and happy hours (and maybe even rent, depending on the designer), buying one on sale would yields more euphoria and far less social or fiscal debt. With a little extra research, I found 10 amazing designer handbags—from the likes of Alexander Wang (pictured), Michael Kors (pictured), ChloĆ©, Alexander McQueen, and M Missoni and more—all on sale for less than $500. See my top picks below:
