English model Poppy Delevingne once said:
“I’m more of a handbag girl; my guilty pleasure is bags. I don’t even have a clue how many I own.”
Like Poppy, many Singaporeans have an undeniable fondness for bags. A bag is a statement piece not only because it blends your outfit together but also because it often sheds a light to your personality. With its importance and functionality, you may wonder about the best places to find reasonably priced bags.
Wonder no more as this list has you covered!
FOR EVERYDAY BAGS
Any person with a tight budget would know that one of the best places to shop at Orchard Road for standout ensemble is the Far East Plaza. With about 6 floors, this building is filled with bargain deals for just about anything you can wear! So for everyday bags priced as low as S$15, focus on the shops at levels 1-3.
FOR PERSONALIZED BAGS
If you like adding a personal touch to your bags then, you will love what GSEWS has to offer. GSEWS’ bags are handmade by a local self-taught crafter whose pricing strategy is set according to the materials and time spent while making each item. This is such a fair trade because you can customize a unique design based on your preference in colors, fabrics, and add-ons. Limited customization slots are up for reservation every 4th Sunday of the month.
However, if you want to purchase the ready-made items, prices start at S$8.
FOR WORKPLACE BAGS
ZALORA Singapore comes to my mind whenever I think of workplace suitable bags that create a balance between shape, function, and affordability. Known for its wide range of international and local brands available at several countries, ZALORA is one of the top online retailers that sell bags, accessories, shoes, apparel, and beauty products for both men and women.
BONUS: FOR LUXURY BAGS
Luxury bags are not exactly affordable however, you can still find some reasonably priced items if you know where to look. With prices that are over 80% lower than the retail price, how can you resist an online bargain deal? Consider these shops:
a. www.reebonz.com.sg: Reebonz offers the widest range for both new and pre-loved designer bags, wallets, and watches. From Chanel, YSL, to Louis Vuitton bags – they have it all!
b. www.brandsfever.com: Getting a great bag deal at the Brands Fever’s flash sale is like hitting the jackpot. But you have to be a site member to indulge all its benefits.
c. www.madammilan.com.sg: Madam Milan not only has an online shop but also physical boutiques in Far East Plaza, Raffles Place MRT, Tanjong Pagar MRT, and Star Vista. They offer prime selections of designer labels islandwide.
