{Splurge v. Steal} Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody Bag

I have been coveting a Rebecca Minkoff bag for quite sometime and I still haven't made the purchase. Fortunately for handbag lovers, I found this very similar bag at Charming Charlie's for only $30 (my store actually extended their sale a week at it is now only $20!!) This really is a charming store and it is organized by color, which makes shopping so fun and easy. They sell affordable handbags, trendy jewelry, and a small selection of clothing, although the accessories are where it's at..for me anyway.

What do you think of this look-a-like bag - would you carry it?

Very similar details on the "steal" version: chain link strap, tassel zippers, size and shape, and the color..what's not to love?!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Love the color! Looks pretty spot on, amazing that it's not from F21! ;) I'm picky about handbags, I like spending on the real deal. But most other accessories I'm ok with look-a-likes!

    P.s. There's no Chamring Charlie's in the bay area, but funny enough there's one in Fresno. Might have to check it out next time I'm in the central valley.


    1. I hear ya about the handbags! Sometimes I just need an inexpensive, yet chic bag that I don't have to worry about, so it's a great option.
      You should really check Charming Charlie's out, you will have so much with everything :)
