March 11, 2009
Looking for a new handbag for spring? We’re here to help. One of the best things about being shopping mavens is that we scour the web, looking for the best sites with the best policies, deals, and selection. Here are the top handbag sites we recommend.
1. Zappos: Return whenever you want (for free).
Zappos is known for its shoes but also features a tremendous selection of bags. Every category known to fashion is listed, from athletic bags to evening clutches. The prices are reasonable and the selection is as good as any major department store. Zappos is also known for its customer first policy, offering free shipping and free 365-day returns. We’re eyeing this cute MICHAEL Michael Kors Santorini Clutch ($122.25).
2. Nordstrom: Buy online, pick it up in the store.
Nordstrom.com is the ecommerce arm of the famed department store known around the world for its exceptional customer service. The site offers bags at multiple price points, sales to die for, and a huge variety of designers. If you’ve got to have something right away, you can buy online and pick it up at your local Nordstrom. This Puma Fitness Bag ($40) is inexpensive and perfect for the gym.
3. Vivre: Find a bag no one else owns.
If you want something rave-worthy that none of your other friends will have, Vivre is the place to go. The site features a mixture of up-and-coming designers and stunners from Nancy Gonzalez and Anya Hindmarch. All items are sent FedEx and you can call a personal shopper between 9 am – 6 pm Mon-Fri. We’re picking up these Snakeskin Envelope Clutches ($130) for our next cocktail party.
4. Avelle: Rent, then buy if you like it that much.
Avelle is known for renting out luxurious handbags, but also sells gently-carried and brand new designer bags as well. They have a huge selection on sale, including this metallic Sobella Satchel ($195) and will let you know exactly how many are left for the taking.
