Every few months I get the itch for a new handbag. My favorite designer bags as of late are Michael Kors and Tory Burch. The handbag on my current wish list is the Tory Burch Robinson Tote
. It's classy, simple, and will never go out of style. There's a reason why it's the bag of choice on many fashion bloggers' arms.
Loving handbags is a pricey little passion of mine, and that price tag explains why I don't just buy them as I please. I like to take advantage of sales and you can find some steep discounts on designer bags when they happen. Last night as I was browsing bags, I came across this little number, known as the Michael Kors Sutton Satchel
. It immediately caught my eye because it looked nearly identical to the Tory Burch Robinson bag I had been lusting over. I've blogged about Michael Kors before and how they often resemble other designer styles here
. Some may not be a fan of that, but I happen to love it and here's why: you get the look for a lot
less. Take these two for example: Michael Kors Sutton Satchel vs Tory Burch Robinson Tote.
Michael Kors Sutton Medium Saffiano Satchel $328 Tory Burch Robinson Double-Zip Tote $575
See what I'm saying!? Don't get me wrong- I love both! But if I want to be ballin' on a budget, I'll be just as happy with the Michael Kors. If I want to splurge? Tory burch it is!
Which one is your favorite!?
