I'm not going to lie. As predictable as it may be, I'm most definitely a lover of labels. I'd shamelessly pay a few hundred dollars more just for an item I buy to whisper or scream the name of one of my favorite brands. Designer-bag prices are continuing to increase, and while indulging in the world of designer accessories has long been considered a luxury reserved for the few, brands have secretly released a few items with their custom logos on the low-low price scale. 

This is the beautiful place where affordability meets sophistication as we discover that a good selection of designer accessories can capture the essence of luxury and promise enduring style. Timeless designs and spectacular logos don't always come with a staggering price tag. Whether you're browsing for yourself or a loved one that you're excited to shop for, join us on a journey into this realm of attainable elegance. Each of these 32 accessories is under $500—you're welcome.

Growing up with no choice but to wear a rotation of school uniforms and activewear, her love for fashion really blossomed when she moved away for college and was able to finally define her very own personal style. Shortly thereafter, she interned at Elle magazine and instantly knew that editorial was for her. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for ShopBazaar, contributing regularly to Bazaar.com, and finally made her way to Who What Wear, where she is an associate editor. When she’s not working, you can catch her always trying to catch a flight, rollerblading through New York City traffic, or exploring the latest luxury vintage boutique.
