Amazing arm-candy, under £150, you and Meghan Markle will love!

Well, woo-hoo, we have been granted ‘permission’ to carry a bag that costs under £500…

Now that Meghan Markle, the First Fiancé, has been snapped carrying a bag that cost “only” £455, we are told we can all relax and feel okay carrying a “cheap” one that cost “only” FOUR-HUNDRED AND FIFTY-FIVE POUNDS…

Well forgive us for shouting. And forgive us if you detect a slight sneer in our tone. But we don’t think £455 is that small a price to pay for a handbag.

We think it’s rather a lot. We agree it’s not a lot compared with a bag from the new Gucci spring collection at £6,500, nor a lot compared with a genuine Birkin at around £15,000, but almost £500 for a piece of arm-candy is not “cheap” and anyone who thinks it is has clearly been reading too many fashion editorials which aim to keep advertisers happy by creating the impression that £2,500 is a “normal” price for a handbag…

In fact, at SoSensational, we have been saying for quite a while that it isn’t necessary to spend a mega-sum on a handbag to complete an outfit. Sure, if you have the disposable income and you feel like spending the GDP of a small nation on a handbag, go ahead; be our guest; enjoy…

But it’s not essential. You don’t need to spend thousands, nor even hundreds to look cool and fashionable. So, basically, we’re agreeing with all those Meghan-watchers who say it’s okay to carry a bag that cost “only”£455. But we’re going further… a lot further and saying you can spend well under £455 and still look sensational.

Here’s how: here is a selection of sensational bags that cost from £45 to £150…
