Off-duty model fashion always piques our interest – especially when covetable bags are involved – and few models get more photographer attention than Victoria’s Secret Angels.

Le Snob is also the ultimate in convertibility.

I’ve combed the Internet far and wide to find you the best frugal bags the web has to offer. Guess what? There’s so much to pick from! I managed to narrow them down to a hefty nine favorites, each with something different to offer. I found them; now you go get them. And speaking of shopping smartly, Tibi’s sample sale kicks off on Monday, so be sure to strike their site for deep discounts on Pre-Fall, Fall, Holiday, and some Resort pieces, all at up to 70% off.
