Your entire outfit might cost less than a tank of regular unleaded, but your accessories are premium.
Sadly, though, with prices what they are, your handbag collection is running on fumes.
Altiplano’s lightweight totes are a summery, affordable solution to your fuel crisis. They’re made from traditional South American fabrics in wild and colorful patterns with flowery embroidery along the edges.
Even more of a relief? The handmade woven bags hail from Guatemala, where local women craft them under 100 percent fair trade conditions.
To top it off, they range from $58 to $98 — far from the arm and leg your designer style cost you.
And that’s an octane even you can fill up on.
