Admittedly, the fact that that The Row Classic Leather Shoulder Bag and this version of the Vince Camuto Julia Shoulder Bag aren’t even remotely similar colors weakens my case here a little bit. If you can look past that, though, I think you’ll find these two bags are a pretty convincing look for less. Use your imaginations. It’s supposed to good for our brains as we age.

I’ve been kind of obsessed with tailored little shoulder bags lately; they look modern and clean, plus they’re super easy to carry. That becomes particularly important when it gets hot outside and you don’t feel like carrying anything at all, and these two bags are both perfect for this spring without being sloppy, as some mini crossbodies tend to be. Although the designs come at wildly disparate price points, both feature a petite rectangular shape, top flap and bar closure as their primary design features. If you’ve got the extra money to spend, the option from The Row will look chic forever. If not, the Vince Camuto version is a great option for the season.
