Arizona Midday | Designer Handbag Looks for Less

Your handbag is the finishing touch on your outfit and makes a strong personal style statement. Of course, we’d all love to buy nothing but the latest designer bag, but our budget sometimes forces us to look for a more affordable piece because the mortgage isn’t going to pay itself. Good news! We found a number of designer bag look-a-likes or “inspired by” styles and some are pretty hard to tell apart from the expensive designer versions! Now, that said, when you are ready to buy an investment piece, a luxury handbag is where to put your dollars, since you will use a quality bag for years to come. Many designer bags, like Chanel for example, have excellent resale value.

Angela shows us how to get the latest trends in designer looks for less on NBC Channel 12’s Arizona Midday.
