Bargain Bags

They say all you need is a statement accessory and your outfit is made, but sometimes finding that standout piece without breaking the bank can be a challenge. That's why the sale season is the best time of the shopping year to hunt for designer deals. Of course any item you spot must be well-studied before making a purchase. of course rule number one should be not to buy just for the sake of the discount. You should question how often it will be worn or if it will compliment your wardrobe or not. 

With this thought, I decided to showcase three statement handbags/clutches that I spotted at the sale of Harvey Nichols Kuwait, which I truly believe will stand the test of time. We have Diane von Furstenberg's lips clutch in a beautiful shade of pink, the designer introduced the same style for S/S 2013 as well. The before price was KD 119 and now it is priced at KD 83.

Pierre Hardy's signature color-block leather shoulder bag, which also can be worn as a clutch. This style has been introduced for at least the past 2-3 years, so it's there to stay. Price tag was KD 234 and now it's priced at KD 117. 

The Row covetable leather backpack is the uptimome of street style uber-chicness. Price tag was KD 1,239 and now it is priced at around KD 619 (OK I wouldn't call this a bargain, but for The Row's price range, this is a good price).
