I have expensive taste – I readily admit that. I also have little money. Put that together and you get someone who is pretty good at a) finding deals on the things I really, really want or b) finding affordable substitutes. Usually. Sometimes I splurge, but I digress…
The other day I saw this lovely bag on the Bibelot facebook page:

I want it. A lot. But it’s $98 retail, which is a bit much for a canvas tote. I found it as low as $68.60, but that’s still high. Thus began the hunt for a similar, more affordable substitute. I had some trouble finding one that was as large, but here’s what I’ve come up with. *Note: While looking for these bags, I clicked on one from Neiman Marcus that was over $1,100, then a $550 tote. Like I said, expensive taste =/
Which is your favorite?
