Marc by Marc Jacobs Heart to Heart Quilted Leather Shoulder Bag: Crossbody My Heart

This is a prime example of everything a Frugal Snob bag should be: flirty, fun, noncommittal, and lighthearted (no pun intended). If something like this cheekily romantic bag happened to veer off into the quadruple-digit price range, you would surely hear me exclaim that such a novelty purchase isn’t worth a big investment. But that’s not the case!

Frugal Friday: MARC by Marc Jacobs Isle de Sea Straw Woven Circle Crossbody Bag

Don’t let the fresh crop of fall goods already in stores fool you. We are still in the midst of summer (happily!), and that means it’s not time to throw in the beach towel just yet. What I need now is an all-out fun bag, something non-committal and capricious that’s not going to require a lot of thought or pondering. Especially since I’m going to Vegas next week.

Frugal Friday: Exclusive 40% Discount Off Palethorp!

Maggie Copeland founded Brooklyn-based Palethorp with a focus on high-quality leathers and snakeskins (even the signature lining is snake-printed), or more often than not, a juxtaposition of the two. The results are perfect summer fun, and as if the prices weren’t reasonable enough to begin with, the label is offering Snobs an exclusive 40% discount!

Splendid Byron Bay Tote: Hold It At Bay

While it’s tempting to bring your favorite soft calfskin, luscious suede, and elaborate exotics to the beach or pool, you know tossing such skin on the sand or wet concrete goes against your better judgment. And really, at the end of a long, sweaty, sun-scorched, splash-soaked day by the water, it’s not worth the worry.

Embrace Your Inner Child With Cartoon Bags by JumpFromPaper

In a world dominated by seriously fashionable, but often serious-minded handbags — think your classic leather with metal accents — JumpFromPaper bags look more like images ripped from a coloring book, albeit a flawlessly colored-in one.

Frugal Friday: Diane von Furstenberg Elaphe Clutch

Some weekends call for a clutch you don’t have to overthink. You know those weekends when you’re going out to a festive dinner or boozy brunch with a big group and you don’t want to worry about someone spilling Pinot Noir or a Bloody Mary when you set your precious bag on the table.
