ogle or own: kate spade satchel

January 22, 2014

When I saw this “own” bag at Target last week I was immediately struck by how gorgeous it is as (this image doesn’t do it justice; it’s so pretty in person), and… the remarkable similarities to pricier Kate Spade satchels. While not a perfect dupe, the affordable version has such a similar resemblance to so many Kate Spade options that most wouldn’t even think twice. Plus, I love the idea of getting the structured satchel look in green — such a gorgeous hue as we veer toward spring — for under $400, and saving my money for a more classic color.

    I love the color, and I love a bag for a steal, however I’ve decided bags are worth the investment. I’d for the KS.

    I’ve been wanting a green bag for a while now. If you had shown me both bags without identifying the brands, I still would have chosen the Merona bag. The color and styling are much more interesting. A green handbag is something I want now, but I don’t think it’s a life long purchase. I would never plunk down the $$ for the Kate Spade bag. Too trendy and the style is not classic enough. Give me the Merona!!

    Such a great color! I have a mini cross-body bag that color, but would love a bigger satchel!

    I’m so glad you posted this! I have been needing a new purse for way too long. I just haven’t bought one yet because all of the ones I want have been littttttle out of my price range. This Target bag is lovely. Happiness. I will probably buy it tonight.

    Happy Tuesday! Stay warm.
