So today I decided to check out SmartBargains.com. I had heard a few things about it, but wanted to see what all the fuss was about for myself.
I’ve been thinking about buying a nice leather handbag for winter, so I went to the handbag section first. I was delighted to find so many beautiful bags!
I started scrolling down, looking at the choices when I realized all the options on the left hand side. I could arrange them by price, look at bags in a certain price range as well as shop specific brands. My favorite feature is being able to arrange the products by largest % off. That’s really, really nice! That way, you know you’re getting the best bargain possible and you know we’re all about bargains here at The Fashionable Housewife.
The first bag that really caught my attention was the Betsey Johnson Catwalk Animal Print Tote (shown right). It’s gray, which is like my signature color right now, plus it sassy with that hot animal print, and it’s about the right size to fit diapers and baby food, etc inside. With it being 65% off it’s original price, I was really tempted, but decided to look around some more before settling on something.
The next bag that really caught my attention was the Steven by Steve Madden Naomi Large Cross Body Hobo. It comes in three colors, once of which is a beautiful grey. Oh it was love at first sight!
If you like Vera Bradley designs, then you’ll be happy to know they have lots of choices for under $50!
While I was looking around at what else they have to offer, I found quite a gem. I’m totally coveting this Gucci 103 Horsebit Floral Champagne Dial Watch. Soooooo pretty!! Love it! I should put that on my Christmas list to Santa…
But anyway, after an hour on the website, I went back to the Betsey Johnson bag and just bought it. It was the first thing that caught my eye and everything else I wanted was a little out of my pre-holiday budget.
It was really fast an easy to place my order and they except Paypal so that made me really happy!! Shipping and handling was only $9.95 and I expect it to arrive in 7-10 days. I will let you know when it arrives!!!!
UPDATE: 6:23pm – I just checked out the website and apparently the handbag I bought is sold out now! It said on the page when I bought it that they only had 1 left, but I thought they were kidding!!! Apparently, they weren’t… HA!
So now you’ll have to wait till I get the bag and take pics of it to see the details. They had so many nice pics on their website!
Well, the good news is, there is a similar Betsey Johnson bag for the same price – $79.99.
