Even though much of the handbag world seems to find Christian Louboutin’s non-shoe accessories hit or miss, every now and then he comes out with a bag that you absolutely can’t miss because not only is it adorable, but every retailer in the known universe ordered it in three colors.
When Prada’s Spring 2011 collection walked in Milan last fall, there was absolutely no doubt within the fashion industry that the brand’s bold stripes and vibrant colors would be hugely influential for the season. That has proved to be entirely true, which means that people who love the look but don’t want to pony up huge money to get it have a few options available to them.
In our never-ending periodic quest to find stylish options at a variety of price points, today we have a reasonably priced alternative to the Nancy Gonzalez Hand-Held Croc Clutch that I wrote about last month. I liked it so much that I went on a search for a budget-friendly alternative to add to my wardrobe, and the best contender I’ve found is the Rebecca Minkoff Lovers Clutch.
Now that Prada is bringing back its ruched leather GaufrÃ© bags for fall, I’m sure that plenty of women will be looking for a way to get the look without paying nearly two grand for a bag like the Prada Napa GaufrÃ© Tote.
