the cool thing about patent leather is that is the great equalizer since you can get it for an inexpensive price. Paying more than even 50 dollars for it is crazy. It is patent leather after all!

Oh . . . I am sooo excited. I love the yellow tote from Target.com for only $20! How cool is that—and it’s the perfect price range for me at the moment!

She looks great in this pic. The bag is a nice color, but too expensive for me!

I love the yellowish-lime green bag, but not the one that Jessica is wearing. I would definatly buy the Target version. Designer things are too expensive for me to buy on a regular basis. I admit I have a “fake Burberry” bag. For me it doesn’t make a difference though. I don’t care if it is made by a designer. I like the Burberry plad design and the “knockoff” is way less expensive so hey! Why not buy it? :)
