Ebelle5 does some comparing. Some will shock you, while others will leave you unimpressed. So follow along with this basic example of quantity over quality. Which will you choose?
Black Leather-Trimmed Canvas Tote vs. Coach Soho Mini Signature Business Tote
Black Leather-Trimmed Canvas Tote
Topping the bags that I can’t get out of my mind is this simple no-name designer Leather Trimmed Canvas Tote. To me this bag looks alot like a classic Coach tote. Especially with the similar hangtag, double front pockets and overall structure.
Spotted on Lillian Vernon, this large and in charge tote is conveniently decorated with four huge exterior pockets with oversized snap buckles. The interior is nylon-lined with cell phone and PDA pouches, card slots, ID window. The measurement of this bag is 13″ length x 5″ width x 9″ height
For only $20, I’ll get two! You can get 20 of these bags for the price of the similar Coach Soho Mini Signature Business Tote!
Coach Soho Mini Signature Business Tote
The idea is the same with the useful outer pockets and roomy interior. The measurements as well are pretty close in dimension; this bag is 14″ length x 5″ width x 10″ height. If you’re designer label only type of shopper then you may like this Coach Bag for $400.
Elka Pucker Up Cinch Satchel vs. Juicy Couture Baby Fluffy
Elka Pucker Up Cinch Satchel
Looks like Juicy Couture’s much-loved Baby Fluffy, but it’s not. The Juicy Couture Baby fluffy is made of soft calf leather, while this bag is made of embossed pebbled plastic. Key Similarities include the double small pockets on either side with magnetic flaps, shoulder straps with chain links that pinch the four corners that give the overall look of the bag a poufy shape.
Discovered on eBags.com, this plastic bag has a retail price of $37.99. 10% of the proceeds goes towards the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Juicy Couture Baby Fluffy
If you desire quality over quantity then you may prefer this Juicy Couture Baby Fluffy. Yea the bags are very similar, but the quality isn’t even comparable, that may have been Elka Pucker’s goal the whole time. I personally would save the $38 and put it towards this true leather with polished hardware Juicy Couture Baby Fluffy.
Nero Bianco “Imogene” Italian Leather Satchel vs. Marc Jacobs Collection Venetia Handbag
Nero Bianco “Imogene” Italian Leather Satchel
This glamorous bag is worthy of some recognition for its stunning similarity to the well-known Marc Jacobs Venetia Handbag. I truly do like the over-all look of this bag with the combination of chunky hardware and trendy shape. However the colors this bag is available in isn’t very appealing, available in mint green or an icky baby blue.
It’s a good deal for only $89, when comparing to this Venetia bag. Spotted on SmartBargains.com for the price of $89.97 Happy shopping!
Marc Jacobs Collection Venetia Handbag
These two bags are incredibly similar, from the large size to the accented silver thick hardware and wraparound belt. The quality and details of this Venetia Handbag is far more exceptional then the Imogene bag.
Discovered in the sale section at eLUXURY.com for $731.
Buti Large Soft Calf Leather Flap Handbag vs. Hermes
Buti Large Soft Calf Leather Flap Handbag
I have fallen in love with this Buti bag! This bag is retailer for a steep $650, however when taking into consideration the similar features this bag shares with the Hermes bag, then the price starts to actually look reasonable.
A few of the bags offered by Hermes are Kelly, Constance, or the ever so popular Birkin. The famous Birkin bag has a long waiting list; you could even have to wait up to a year. Price range for a Birkin bag would start at $5,000 for plain leather and climb up to more than $70,000 for crocodile leather and diamond-encrusted hardware.
Nothing compares to a Hermes! These bags are made from the best materials on earth, coming in either the finest animal skins, alligator from Florida, buffalo from Pakistan, crocodile from Australia, sharks from Thailand, lizards from Malaysia, oxen, deer, calf and goats from all over the world.
