Designer handbags are all the rage right now
Designer handbags are all the rage right now, with the styles changing quickly from season to season. They're sold for astronomical prices -- who can afford to stay current with the cutting edge carryalls?
A friend of mine recently told me about a trend in which high-end clutches and bags are actually rented from week to week! Luckily for those with a passion for fashion, faux leather has made a big comeback. That means that staying current with trends can be absolutely affordable.
While real leather lasts for decades, it has a hefty price tag, and can be difficult to clean and maintain.
Faux leather, costs about a third of true leather. It comes in a wider variety of colors and sheens, it's more versatile, and it's easier for cleaning and care. The fact that it's animal-friendly has appeal, too. The category of faux leather encompasses a variety of fabrics including artificial leather, Koskin, leatherette, and pleather.
