Louboutin vs Santi

Christian Louboutin continues to make a name for himself in the handbag world. The Christian Louboutin Loubistuds Clutch wowed us when we first viewed it. The perfect edginess was added to make that clutch a contender and a clutch that truly would amp up your night time outfits. The problem with that clutch was the price. Just over $1500, that is one pricey clutch.

We found you an option if you want the Studded clutch look for less. The Santi Beaded Disco Bag features hand-beading rather than studs and brings you the 80’s theme for fall. The top kisslock closure is reminiscent of the kisslock closure on the Louboutin clutch. The body of the clutch is satin, available in black, pink and gold.

While shopping the look for less is not always my forte, it is important for all of us to know how and when to make wise shopping choices. For a fun night out clutch, spending $165 rather than $1519 makes financial sense. And the Santi clutch is a great option, that will infuse retro glamour into your wardrobe. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $165.

  • The CL clutch is clearly much more awesome, but until I hit the lottery, I could never see myself spending that much on a clutch.

    • I adore the CL clutch, but the Santi clutch is quite similar and 1/10th the price

    I actually really like the Santi clutch. The color is fun!

    I actually had lust for the CL clutch before this post….I still would buy it if I were in that market.
    It is VERY cool.

    The pink clutch looks like something’s growing all over it. Ick, now I feel like something’s crawling underneath my skin…

  • Claire

    I wonder which one people would want if they didn’t know the brands.

    The pink one looks good for an evening out…unless that evening is the Oscars or something!!

    I love the Louboutin (that shoe-shaped kiss lock rocks my world!) but it is far beyond what my budget would allow. The pink clutch gets big points for the color, but I can’t see myself carrying it. Now where did I put my Bedazzler. . . :)

    I love the CL clutch. PhotoGirl, I also love the shoe shaped kiss lock. Another beautiful creation from CL. :)

    They are both ugly and not worth the price.
