Seeing Double

Us ladies all have that dream designer handbag that we lust after and always admire in Bloomingdales. Often times, those gorgeous purses are outrageously expensive. Although they are an important staple piece within a wardrobe, not many of us can quickly hand over $1,000 without saving and cringing. I've recently spotted a couple of purses that in my mind, are lovely basics and are both outrageous. Coming from two of the most influential designer brands, these purses are some of my dream handbags. Along with those purses, I will include a "look alike": a cheaper alternative that is just as well made and equally beautiful. I hope you all enjoy this post and let me know in the comments what some of your dream handbags are!

Prada Saffiano Executive Tote vs. Zara Office City Bag
 Seeing Double
While the Prada tote is priced at $1,960, the Zara look alike is $89.90. The inside of the bags have 3 zippered pockets and they have a shoulder strap included.

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel vs. Topshop Winged Tote

Seeing Double 
Although there are quite some differences between these two handbags, they look very similar. For example, the leather on the Pashli is a texturized cow leather, while the Topshop tote is a silky faux leather. They both have double zippers and a clasp closure. The Pashli is priced at $825 and the Topshop tote is $90.


  1. I love this post! Great lookalikes. My dream designer bag has always been a quilted Chanel...I have a lookalike but I still think about the real thing. Maybe one day!

    1. Thanks Julie! Chanel is totally iconic, I've wanted a quilted one too for the longest time!


Thank you for your lovely comments and for reading!
