    The “twin” bags are OK, but nothing compares to having the real thing!

    I love a beautiful handbag but it’s crazy to spend thousands of dollars on a designer bag. I usually enjoy the “Splurge vs. Steal” articles. This one -not so much. Seems like the inexpensive alternative bags looked very cheap. In most cases the cheaper bags lacked style and didn’t resemble their “Splurge” counterparts at all.
