I started the New Year with a thorough product review of the trending, very fashionable 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel which I received as a Christmas gift from my hubby. But to be honest, it´s not easy for me to let go of my money on designer items such as bags on any other day, no matter how much I covet or adore them. I work hard for my money.
So I definitely feel you girls, those of you who´d rather opt for designer lookalikes. These items look similar, reasonably well-made, for an eighth of the price. Bebe currently retails a lookalike of the famous 3.1 Phillip Lim satchel. It´s something you gotta check.
Serene Zipper Tote, Black/White, $109.00
Does it look so close? Really close! It has the twin zipper detail, the flap closure, the metal lock, and the structure style of the original although it´s colorblock. You can have it in black and white, perfect to go with any outfit.
Serene Zipper Tote, Citronelle, $109.00
But if you love a chic trend-setter vibe, go for the citron. It´s yummy to the eyes, attention-grabbing, and in my opinion, looks more polished and more expensive than the black and white.
So what do you think girls? Would you rather go for the original designer satchel or the designer copycat?
