In my fantasy life, I take regular vacations abroad (traveling only by private plane or yacht, obviously), wear fabulous emerald necklaces just because it's Tuesday, and frequently purchase new designer handbags. In my real life, the one in which the majority of my income goes straight to my landlord and Postmates, I only buy a big-ticket bag if it's on sale. If you're thinking "but designer handbags rarely go on sale," then I invite you to join me in my shock over how discounted these 19 covetable crossbody, evening, bucket, and tote bags are—but I'd act fast, as there's no way they'll be available for long.
