As the holidays fast approach, many are feeling an empty pocket book because of finances at this time. While many of us would love a new designer handbag for each season every season, it is not always practical. And with many of our lifestyles, a more affordable go to bag is the best idea. But what bag do you go to when you do not splurge? The three bags above all fall around the same price tag and bring a different design to the table. This is the comparison of Marc Jacobs vs Kooba vs Cole Haan; which would you choose? The three options are: the Marc by Marc Jacobs Aline Lovely Satchel behind door number 1, number 2 is the Kooba Katy Shoulder Bag, and lastly we have the Cole Haan Aerin Large Patent Tote. All of these handbags bring something different, yet all remain with a price tag under $700 (with two being under $500). The Marc by Marc Jacobs line has been producing riveting cute bags that make the Marc bags look super over priced and not even as nice as its younger sister line. Kooba has been known for their funky handbags that attract the younger crowds, and the Kooba Katy is no exception. And then there is the Cole Haan bag, which is appealing for the younger crowd and can work for the older crowd too. The prices vary, yet are definitely considered bag deals for today’s handbag world. So which door would you pick and why? (of course there is door number 4, hate em all!)

  • Jennifer

    I love #3. Very chic and hip.

  • applevenusian

    i am a new fan of the Koobas, but i would have to choose #3 as well. i have been borrowing bags like Nos. 1 and 2, and 3 would be a little bit of a departure for me, with the patent look.
