Tory Burch Tote vs. Steve Madden Bag
As I stumbled upon Steve Maddensâ€™ Perforated Patent Tote, the name Tory Burch jumped into my head. Why, you might ask? Well, take a look for yourself. Both bags share obvious similarities, such as, the same bag shape, both bags also measure in at 17ï¿½?W x 16ï¿½? H. You can find long straps attached to the body of the totes by a round gold rivet insertion. You can also find a magnetic snap closure inside both bags for security purposes. Both bear perforated embellishment on its front side; Burchâ€™s tote sports its recognizable reflecting Tâ€™s (Burchâ€™s signature logo), while Maddens tote is perforated with some type of symbol I canâ€™t really make out. Of course the most obvious comparison between Burchâ€™s and Maddenâ€™s creations would have to be the high-shine patent leather body. So what differences do these two totes have? Burchâ€™s tote comes in a variety of hues, including new color combinations, such as Turquoise on Yellow or Tangerine on White, which will be available soon as they are part of the Burchâ€™s Spring 2008 collection. While, Maddenâ€™s tote is adorned with a detachable charm piece. You can obtain Maddenâ€™s BJENN bag for $38 through Steve Madden (dot com) or get the original Tory Burch tote via Nordstrom (dot com) for $325.
