Luxe for Less – Chloe Satchel

It’s been a while since I wrote a ‘Luxe for Less’ post.  I used to write these a lot when I was a post-doc, but have written less of them since I joined faculty.  Time is much more limited, which also means I have less time to peruse websites for great deals.

But, I found one recently, so I had to share it with you!  A while back I found a Chloe Marcie look-a-like at Target, but it sold out so quickly that I didn’t have time to write a post about it!  I’ve featured it on Instagram several times and have had a lot of interest about it.  I was recently perusing online and found a Luxe for Less version to share!

For those of you unfamiliar with the Chloe Marcie satchel, see below.  It’s a cognac, leather crossbody bag with intricate detailing.  It’s wonderful.  As a mom of two, a crossbody is the perfect bag to carry when I have my kids in tow.  It frees up my hands, and if roomy enough, allows me to carry my wallet, kiddie snacks, pull-ups, wipes, and hand sanitizer.  The list is really endless, but you get what I’m saying.  Anyhow, my Target satchel allows for all that, and this Chloe satchel does too, but the price tag is a little scary.  At least for this frugal fashionista.  This Chloe satchel runs you a hefty $795 buckaroos.  Ouch.  That’s nearly a month’s worth of daycare tuition, so for the time being…no gracias!



Cue the French Connection satchel.  It not only comes in this lovely, versatile cognac color, but in cream and black too!  This satchel is not leather (save the animals!), has an adjustable strap to serve either as a crossbody or shoulder bag, and only wants 14oz.  If you are shopping online or in-store and want to inquire about the bag, use the following codes: Online inquiries: LCS16_V30JG | Store Inquiries: #34211841.

What’s the best part??  They are only $42.50 a piece!  Even better, if you shop through eBates, you get an additional 4% rebate.  So, in all, a pretty great if you ask me!  Happy Shopping!


Oh, and don’t forget….please vote for me!!  I have the opportunity to snag a spot on the cover of Redbook Magazine this fall.  I’m super thrilled!  But, I need your votes.  You can vote once per hour on multiple devices!  Please vote!  Thank you!!

Until next time!  Stay ‘Chic’!
