Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen Ready More Affordable Handbags | Elizabeth & James Purses from Celebrity Twins

If the opulent purses from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's The Row line were too rich for your blood, you're in luck. The stylish sisters are adding handbags to their more affordable Elizabeth and James collection.

Neiman Marcus announced the good news with the tweet "Full @ElizandJames report coming up. Here's a scoop: they're launching handbags next year!"

So now we're all left to speculate, although with Elizabeth and James acting as a mid-priced alternative to The Row we likely won't see any black alligator backpacks with exorbitant $39, 000 price tags in the bunch.

It's expected that the Elizabeth and James purses will be priced much more affordably at around the $400 to $500 mark. That's still not small change, but it's competitive amongst the luxury labels. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are never going to serve up synthetic purses after all, so we're going to pay for quality.

It's also predicted that the brand new bags will hit stores, such as Neiman Marcus and other high-end retail outlets, by the end of the year. No doubt we'll hear more about them in the coming months to create a bit of pre-Christmas buzz. Do you think the twins' latest handbags will make your wish list this year?
