Today is all about purses. I love having a bag that’s big enough to fit all my necessities in, but also small enough it’s not hurting my shoulder. Since the pandemic I’ve been using my Elleme mini bag and it’s perfect. I want you all to find your perfect purse so I’ve rounded up designer bags and ones that are similar to them.
1. Amazon – Casual Travel Daypack for Women | 2. Louis Vuitton – Monogram Bumbag | 3. Amazon – Women’s Shoulder Chain Bag Crossbody Purse | 4. Gucci – Dionysus small GG bag | 5. Amazon – Womens Shoulder Bags Cow Leather | 6. Chanel – 2.55 Handbag | 7. Amazon – Santa Barbara Design Studio Tote Bag | 8. Saint Laurent – Rive Gauche Small Canvas East-West Tote Bag | 9. Amazon – I IHAYNER Womens Leather Handbags Purses Top-handle Totes | 10. Dior – Large Lady Dior Bag
Here we have the bumbag that’s similar to the Louis Vuitton one and the real Louis Vuitton. Since the covid pandemic I’ve found most purses to be a bit cumbersome, and a belt bag, bumbag, whatever you want to call it, is way better. If you have the money to splurge on the real Louis, by all means, go for it. If you’re watching your pennies, the cheaper version is pretty darn cute and similar.
Frankly, I’m amazed Amazon has gotten away with this bag. It’s really similar to the Gucci Dionysus small GG bag. From the pictures it looks like the differences are subtle – the large croc pattern and the horseshoe are the differences I can see. Of course, once you get it in your possession, it might be completely different, but I’d def give it a whirl. You’ll be saving about $2,861! For that alone, I feel like the Amazon version is worth it.
What gal doesn’t dream of a Chanel purse? Some of us have champagne dreams on a beer budget, so this Amazon one is a close second. From far away, I bet no one will be the wiser. However, if you have the money, I say get the Chanel – the resale value is always great. I frequently check out the prices on The Real Real or Poshmark. It’s also a great way to help reduce your carbon footprint!
These are a bit of a stretch, I will agree, but I think the Amazon bag is somewhat inspired by the Saint Laurent tote. I could see toting the Saint Laurent one on the Amalfi coast or Nice. The Amazon bag seems like more of an everyday bag. I’d be afraid of taking the Saint Laurent one to the market! So it might be nice to have both if you can swing it. Tee hee!
Now these look super similar. I would take that white pompom thing off the Amazon one and probably unclip the straps to make it look even more similar to the Lady Dior. Of course it has two top straps, but you can’t have everything.
Here you have your 10 purses, some designer, some not, but all pretty darn cute in my opinion. What do you all think? Let me know if you get any!
