What I’m about to tell you may come as a surprise…
hahaa, ok, so it wasn’t a surprise but I just had to say that. They ARE a true passion of mine.
The only problem with that is that my budget and my home won’t accommodate my desire to have tons of tons of those babies. A girl really can never have too many, right? I mean you need one to match every outfit. Yeah, in my dreams. hehee!
I’m the kind of girl that, when I see another chic walking by, the first things I notice are her shoes and her handbag. And if I love how they look, I’m not afraid to ask where she got them. If she says from some high dollar department store, I kindly thank her and walk away all frumpy-like because I know I can’t afford those. Bummer!
I’m sure many of you ladies are in the same boat — you love your bags and you’ve got an eye for style BUT your bank account says “yeah, you wish!”.
Well, not anymore girls because I’ve been introduced to an online handbag retailer that’s probably going to become your new best friend.
Say “hello” to Bagluxe, a specialty retailer of fashion-forward handbags that are influenced by the latest runway and celebrity trends.
Bagluxe offers a wide range of affordable handbags, purses, and fashion accessories to fit any woman’s taste, not to mention budget because everything is priced below $85.00. Yes ladies, YOU could be rockin’ those trendy celebrity style handbags at a fraction of the price. Need I say your hubby would even be pleased? hehee!
I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Bagluxe bag — the Raelene Studded Satchel Bag, and I’m happy to share that I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of my new handbag. It’s not like those cheap discount store bags at all.
I was a little reluctant to go with a white handbag since it’s so unlike me and I was afraid of how quickly it might become dirty but I thought “what the heck, why not?’ I’ll try anything once.
The Raelene satchel bag is a soft, off-white leather handbag that’s adorned with many design elements — gold tone metal hardware, studs, buckles, and a twist lock closure. It even has 4 gold toned “feet” on the bottom.
The size is a little larger than I typically carry (13.5″ W x 10.5″ H x 6″ D) but this baby has tons of storage space. You get one large interior, 2 interior zippered pockets, 2 open side-slip interior pockets, a separate interior pocket, 2 front magnetic snap exterior pockets, a back exterior zippered pocket, and a partridge in a pear tree. Kidding!
It also comes with two 5″ attached handles and a detachable 42″ strap. I love that because most times I carry my handbag in the bend of my arm which is great with the 5″ handles, but when I’m in crowded locations I like to carry it over my shoulder. Such versatility. hehee!

I love how much room I have in this bag. I can carry my cell phone, pepper spray, keys, make up, wallet, photo album, coupon organizer, hand lotion, hand sanitizer, 2 packs of gum, aspirin, key chain flashlight, items for that “time of the month”, and SO much more in this bag. It’s awesome!
Oh, and after a few weeks of use, it’s still just as clean as it was when I received it. I worried for nothing. hehee!
The Raelene Studded Satchel Bag can be purchased directly at www.bagluxe.com and currently retails for $58.95.
One great thing about Bagluxe, besides all of the great styles and affordable prices, is their hassle free return policy. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. So, if for some reason you are not 100% happy with your purchase, you can either exchange your bag for another item or Bagluxe will refund your money. No sale is ever final at Bagluxe!
Head over and check out the summer handbags ladies… I know you’re going to find something you like. Ahem, MANY that you like. hehe!
One more thing, come back here on Monday, August 6th because we’re giving away FIVE Bagluxe handbags. Yes FIVE!!! 5 lucky ladies will each get to choose their favorite handbag or a $50 gift card. Woohoo!
