How to Save Big on a Designer Handbag This Labor Day

Save big on designer bags at Bag, Borrow or Steal
With New York fashion week coming up, I thought now might be a good time to experiment with a designer bag rental (more on that to come), so I hopped on over to Bag, Borrow or Steal ( and was immediately sidetracked by their amazing Labor Day sale. (Laser focus, over here.) Today only you can save big on pre-loved designer bags from brands like Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Celine, 3.1 Phillip Lim and more. You can borrow a bag at up to 50% off, or buy a bag at up to 60% off plus an extra 20% off all buys with code LABORDAY20. Since even a Celine bag on sale is still too much for this budget-babe, I rounded up four of my favorite bags under $200 above from brands like Rebecca Minkoff and Coach. In hues like gray and burgundy these are perfect for fall, and you'll feel proud carrying them knowing you saved some serious cash! Check out more styles at - hurry, sale ends tonight!

Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone! We thought it fitting to show a simple yet chic look that showcases our nation's patriotic palette on this holiday, and Reeese Witherspoon was the gal to do it. In her polka dot top, slim-fit jeans and red suede pumps, she's looking polished yet casual, perfect for running errands or grabbing lunch with friends. We love how her gold chain necklace and sleek black structured bag add a touch of sophistication - and both items can be worn with any 9 to 5 look, too.
