That, Not This



What do you think of this?


Valentino Shiny Napa Petal Tote
$2,295.00 @ Bergdorf Goodman

I really like it a lot.  But, my close friend's fashion forward sister just payed $2,156.00
LESS, for that:

 
Big Buddha Mia Bag 
$67.50 @ The Addison Collection.Net
And, while it's neither designer nor leather, this bag is made of eco-friendly "pleather".
Hey, its chic, its practical and no harm was done to animals... 
or your wallet.

  3. Great find! I LOVE the Valentino (and would buy it in a second if it wouldn't mean I would be homeless and hungry), but the Mia bag is a great alternative until I win the lottery.

  5. Im not diggin it at all. I have a hard time thinking that someone would drop over 2K for a bag that is good for one season. Especially when I have difficulty getting a client to buy an entire sofa for that. But I would definitely entertain the mia bag!

  6. It reminds me of the bullet proof brooch.

    Which is more nerdy than fashionable, but I love the idea.

  7. Love the bag, but I have a big black one like the top one albeit the price tag and the leather...it's a summer tote for the beach with a huge black flower...I love it! Bought in the Hamptons for about $30.00!

  9. I would definitely go for the That, not the This... but wouldn't it be fun to own something that is Valentino (sunglasses anyone?)
