My Lust Have List Haul – The Handbag

As I work through a closer look at my lust have list haul, it has become time to check out the handbag.

I didn’t get the Chanel bag. But then you already knew that I wouldn’t. However, I think I got a suitable substitute. Especially considering I will be treating myself to the Chanel bag next year for my birthday!

The original lust-worthy handbag is perfect but wasn’t going to fit inside my $1000 budget even if I only bought it!

So I went to “Plan B” and looked all over for a bag that had a little bit of the Chanel style but a lot fewer numbers on the price tag.

I found this bag on sale for $99 at ASOS. It’s a non-brand name bag with silver hardware.

I like that it has both the shoulder strap and the handle for carrying options. It’s also just the right size to carry pretty well everything I would need in my handbag when getting around to and from work, which is when I mostly intend to carry it. The quilted flap is reminiscent of the Chanel bag without trying too hard.

I’m pretty excited that it works so nicely with the metal capped toes pumps and the silver bracelet also purchased for my lust have list haul. It’s going to make a nice simple accessory for a great number of my looks, both work and play.

After all, it is black…and a classic style, so it should work well with most things!

Now, considering my budget for this handbag purchase was $100. How do you think I did for my lust have list haul? Is this a handbag you would be caught out of the house with?
