10 Bags That Look Expensive–But Aren't

We love to get away with something sneaky, especially when we can hang it in our closet. There is no rule (that we know of) that says you simply must drop a ton of dough on your bag. Why would you, when there are so many bags that pull double-duty as both stunning arm-candy and totally frugal finds? We know, it seems impossible, trust us, with a little time, some patience, and a trained eye, you can find handbags that will trick the everyone into thinking they're totally money. Whether you're shopping for a new fall stunner, or looking to add a classic or two to your collection, we can totally help. Click through, then let us know how good it felt to stretch those dollars all over your closet!
