+ Look for Less

Morning Line: September 25


Aldo Lily Satchel ($85)

Okay, so this bag isn’t under-$50.  But sometimes, the increase in awesomeness is worth the increase in price.  This satchel is feminine, modern, and comes in the perfect fall hue.

Aldo has a number of great bags in the $75 to $100 price point.  This sculptural bag is a 3.1 Phillip Lim knock-off with a strong shape and loads of style.  I also like this cognac satchel in a barrel shape with peaked corners and metal accents.

Looking for something under-$75?  The Adelaide bag is a structured satchel with gold hardware in black or cognac.  The Valefratta dome bag is the perfect understated work satchel.  This Stayter satchel has a larger, relaxed shape and comes in three colors.

    Aldo is killing it right now, which surprises me. A remember a few years back I hated everything they carried.

    Based on your tip I actually went there yesterday for some booties. I’m wearing them today and they’re super comfy, despite the heel! Thanks for the recommendation.

    Hey Belle,

    What is the quality like at Aldo these days? The last time I bought an Aldo bag (back in 2005), it fell apart in 3 months. I really like the Phillip Lim- inspired bag above, however $90 is alot to spend on something that I can only use for 3 months…..

      I haven’t had that experience. But I’d google around and see if Purse Blog or someone has a more recent review.

    That Phillip Lim-inspired bag is to DIE for! The website here is saying it’s only $40, so I’m snapping it up right now!

      Oh, maybe they lowered the prices since last night, a sale perhaps? Awesome.

    The quality and style of their bags in general has improved so much over the past few years.
    They are definitely doing something right!! Love it all.
