I’m sure if someone were to interview the designers at Leah & Bliss they would say they were inspired by Hermes but added their own little twist to the over popular bag. After I got over the Hermes comparison, I instantly thought of Lady Gaga. I’m pretty sure one of Lady Gaga’s most famous outfits was an outfit full of bubbles. Even though this handbag doesn’t have bubbles all over it, the pearls do kind of give off that effect.
Some people might be against this bag because of the Hermes similarities but I can see a “pro” to purchasing a bag like this. An Hermes “Birkin” starts at around $10,000, probably more since we are approaching 2011. Unless, you have serious dough or a major credit card you aren’t getting one. Not to mention, the waiting list to get a “Birkin” is pretty insane. The joy about the “Uptown” handbag is that the price tag is great and there is no waiting list. Yes, it may look like a “Birkin” but perhaps one that’s dressed up in the most unique way possible.
The Leah & Bliss Mini “Uptown” Pearl Black Calfskin Handbag can be purchased at Singer22 for $850.
