There are certain things in life that are worth waiting for—finding your one true love, buying your first house, embarking on the trip of a lifetime. Purchasing your dream bag at a heavily discounted price could also fall into that category, or at least that's what I tell myself in order to restrain myself from clicking "add to cart" at the beginning of every season. I know that if I have the willpower to wait, that gorgeous designer handbag is extremely likely to go on sale (unless it's Bottega Veneta, that is) at some point, and I'll end up saving myself hundreds of dollars.
That time has finally come. My self-restraint has paid off, and all of the bags I've been eyeing for months are now on sale at retailers like Net-a-Porter and Fwrd. From the chain-mail Paco Rabanne bag you've seen all over Instagram to the croc-effect Chloé bag you'll keep for the decades, below I'm highlighting the 27 best designer bags on sale right now that were well worth waiting to buy (until now).
