7 Unique Ways To Make Your Cheap Bags Look Cute AF

In high school, I was always super jealous of all of the girls my age who had chic and expensive designer bags, while I was stuck with my hand-me-down totes and clutches from my older sisters. I would have some boring, mono-colored bag, while all the “cool girls” had flashy bags with cute patterns and designs. I would have loved to be able to buy one of those but, unfortunately I did not have to funds to buy a $3,500 bag when I was in high school. I don’t even have those funds now. Does anybody even have those funds? Either way, I had to resort to buying inexpensive bags from places like H&M, which was totally fine, but it’s hard to find something super cute for super cheap sometimes.
