From top, clockwise:
Whenever I'm in need of a new handbag, I usually look to the runways and street style blogs for inspiration. Usually, I want something different from the typical Longchamp and Coach bags being carried by my fellow college girls (not that there's anything wrong with their style). Unfortunately, unique bags usually come with a steep price tag as well.
You know how makeup blogs often show you "dupes" for expensive products? Well, here are my "dupes" for expensive designer bags. If you're like me, and you want a unique silhouette for less, I've rounded up the bags most similar to the Valentino rockstud and Celine trapeze bags seen on your street style stars.
Of course, you're free to debate whether these bags become less unique if we are all carrying the same ones...but while you're doing so, I'll be ordering the JCPenney trapeze bag above, the sister to the coveted Celine trapeze. Come to me, baby!
