Most Affordable Designer Handbags For Millennials

If you are obsessed with designer handbags but do not want to spend thousands of dollars on it — then this post is right for you. As millennials, we love to spend money but because there are many things we like to do, we need to be smart in what we spend it on. I personally love designer handbags but I do not want to spend thousands of dollars on it just yet. Maybe one day, but not now. If you’re just like me then let’s break it down the most affordable designer handbags that cost less than a thousand dollar!


Coach is the most luxury bags among the list of affordable designer bags. The brand is well-known worldwide and most people would recognize the Coach logo. The brand itself ranked 5th on the highest brand recall (coachinc) together with Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Gucci. Despite this, the price of Coach is relatively low if you compared it with other top-ranked luxury bags. Most coach handbags cost around $100 — $500, with some still over $1000. But there are lots of great designs with great quality that cost under $500. Honestly, Coach is definitely worth the price and if you want to get a good quality of handbags for under $1000, you should check it out!

#Kate Spade

The second on the list is Kate Spade. Kate Spade is well known as a designer bag based in New York. The price of Kate Spade range between $100 — $1000, with approx price fall between $400 — $800. In my opinion, Kate Spade is quite similar to Coach but slightly different. I would say the difference mainly is in their design. Kate Spade design is a little bit more simple but more colorful. But again if you’d like an affordable designer handbag, you should check Kate Spade out as well!

#Michael Kors

Last but not least is Michael Kors. Michael Kors is another designer handbag that the average price does not fall over three thousand dollars. The price range for this brand is between $100 — $3000. You still can find some that cost beyond $3000, but most of the handbags cost less than $3000. The average price fall between $200 — $800 with lots of lovely designs of handbags cost less than $300. Michael Kors design is classic and original (similar with coach but with different vibes). If you’re into basic color (white, black, brown) — you should definitely check this brand out!

#Others …

There are others affordable designer handbags that I would recommend, — (such as Ted Baker, Longchamp, etc) but for now — these are my top 3 most affordable designer handbags you should check it out. Because honestly, the price of these 3 brands is worth the quality and design you’ll get from them!

Handbags speak louder than words!

How to Live your Life Like a Model

“Everyday is a fashion show and the world is your runway.”

Model is normally associated as a figure that has a good body. It’s not a secret that many people want to be a model. However, being a model is not an easy job. It requires hard working, and definitely a passion. Thus, even though not everyone is a model, there are ways to live your life like a model. Living your life like a model will support your health and well being, both from the inside and outside.


No junk food

The first thing you have to do is to cut junk food from your beverages list. Junk food is not healthy and contains very low nutrition for your body. In addition, junk food will not support your body to stay fit. Yes, some model does eat junk food – but they only eat once in a month or in two months. If this is the situation then it’s okay to consume junk food once in a while. But definitely, don’t eat junk food every day or even every week cause it’s not good for your health and won’t be supporting your body shape.


Natural Makeup

Model off duty tends to wear natural makeup as their everyday makeup routine. Natural makeup means using makeup that’s necessary but not too much. This includes using, tint-moisturizer/BB cream/concealer, compact powder, natural eyeshadow, mascara, eyebrow pencil (if you need to shape your brows), last but not least, blush on (or use highlighters if you prefer to look more natural). I personally really like natural makeup, because it still looks natural and not too much for your face, but still using makeup. At the same time, it also moisturizes your face and you will look like someone that still cares about the appearance.


Exercise and work out

Doing exercise or work out is necessary. It doesn’t mean that you have to go to the gym every day. You could go to the gym once or twice a week. In addition, do exercise or work out could be anywhere, even you could do it in your home with fitness app or any other sources you prefer. I like to work out every morning 15 – 25 minutes each. It definitely gives me more energy to do my activity during the day and help my body to stay fit.


Have your own style

Model tends to have their own style that normally categorized as their icon. Having your own style will make you appear as someone that’s unique. Your style could be your platform on your everyday life. You could pick anything that’s your favorites. For example, if you like a dress, you could play your style with the dress, or if you like black and white, you could use those 2 colours for your everyday outfit. For me, I always wear a leather jacket. So the basis of my style is something related to the leather jacket.


Be confident

Last but not least, is to be confident. Being confident is very important. Because you won’t look beautiful from the outside if from the inside you don’t feel it that way. If a model doesn’t feel confident, how could the photographer get a good picture of him/her? Confident is the key. You don’t have to think/feel that you are the most beautiful girl in the world to be confident. To be confident is simply to realise that you are grateful for whatever you have. Yes, I’m not perfect, but nobody’s perfect. We all are unique in our own kind of way and there’s a beauty in our flaws. We only live once, so there is no point to waste our time with our insecurity ☺

“Life isn’t perfect but your outfit can be.”

High street brand is very famous among people as it has high quality of products with affordable price – not as expensive as luxury brands. Nowadays, there are lots brands that are categorised as high street brands. Here is my top 5 list of high street brands.



ZARA Logo. | Source: Google.

This Spanish clothing brand is my number one favorite brand. I have been using ZARA ever since I was a little girl. Started by using “Kids” category – changed into “TRF” – until recently I have started to use “Woman” category. I have got through my style revolutions with ZARA. Their style is very classic and edgy. ZARA style always follows trends while keeping up with their intelligent looks. ZARA blazers and coat are the two of my favorites. Their boots and bags also my favorites items from this store.


2. Topshop

Topshop was first founded in Sheffield, England. This British brand is very famous for people in between 15 until 25 years old. Topshop style always very high street and edgy. Their jeans is one of the best high street jeans. Topshop ripped jeans is definitely my favorite. This brand is worth having because their style has always been very up to date, and their clothing quality is highly competitive.


3. River Island

River Island is another British brand that I am obsessed with. River Island style is slightly different with Topshop. Topshop is more casual while River Island is more eccentric (in a good way). What I like the most about River Island is their mixture of unique style but still classy and edgy. River Island accessories is one of my favorites. They always have a new and unique design of accessories, as well as jackets and coats.


4. Pull & Bear

This brand is my favorite brand during my school year. Pull & Bear style is edgy and casual. It tends to follow teenager trends. The must have item from this brands are jeans and jackets. Pull & Bear top also in high competitive with Topshop. They always have new interesting designs of jackets with various colours options.


5. Marks & Spencer

Marks & Spencer style could be argued “very British”. This is because the majority of British designers, bloggers, stylist (and any others people that work in this industry) tend to dress up very classy and intelligent. This style has represented Marks & Spencer. Marks & Spencer clothing item is good for people that are working. Often Marks & Spencer will use pastel colours for their clothing. In some cases, they also provide floral patterns for dresses or tops.

Top 5 Fashion City

“Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.”

Fashion city is a home to many designers, stylists, bloggers, models, influencers, fashionista – and many others people that are in love and working in this industry. To some people, this city is a dream to start a career and working in fashion industry. Nowadays, there are so many cities that are considered as “Fashion City”. However, there are only few cities that are called the capitals of the fashion industry. Here is my top 5 list for fashion city from all around the world.


1. Paris

Paris is well known as the fashion capital of the world. When I was there, I understand why this city is the capital of fashion. Almost 98% of people in Paris have style – and they are not afraid to wear what they think is good – even for normal people it could be strange. Every day, people from different background have their own style – it is not just people that work in the fashion industry who have style, but also others that work in the office or even a teenager. In addition, Paris is full of luxury brands. It is the best city for shopping.


2. Milan


Milan. | Source: Google.

Milan is the second most famous city for fashion. Together with Paris, London and New York – Milan is considered as the global “Big Four” fashion capitals during the 20th Century. Milan is a little bit different with Paris. When I was in Milan, the atmosphere is not the same with Paris. Everyone is very stylish – same with the people in Paris – but their style is different. Milan is a city that totally focuses on fashion – while Paris still has activity rather than in fashion industry (May be it’s because Paris is a capital city, while in Italy the capital is Rome and not Milan). However, both Milan and Paris are full of luxury brands. The shops in Paris are bigger than in Milan – however, if I am being honest, I would personally prefer to shop in Milan, because the shops are very organized and well structured.


3. London

London is considered as the global fashion capitals as well as Paris and Milan. People in London always have their own style – but unlike in Paris and Milan that are very unique (even sometimes strange for normal people), the style of Londoner is more predictable. Nevertheless, London was the best fashion city in between 2011-2012 and London is a home to many fashion designers – such as Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney, Thomas Burberry, Paul Smith and much more. It could be argued that the style of Londoner is the most intelligent.


4. New York

New York is another famous fashion capitals. I personally think that the style of people in New York is a mixture of people in Paris, Milan, and London. This city is the best fashion city in the United States – and nowadays, it has been argued as the best in the world (Paris as number two). This city has focused on growing their industry in fashion sector in the last couple of years. Not only for clothing, this city also has lots of famous interior designers. New York is a home for many fashion designers.


5. Tokyo

Tokyo is the capital of Japan – and this city (Since the 21st Century) has started to be considered as a fashion capital. The style of people in Tokyo is different with the others “Big Four”. This difference is what makes this city unique. Tokyo itself has become an inspiration for many fashion designer from all around the world.
