A Break From Design Posts to Talk About HANDBAGS (and Jewelry) (My Third and Fourth Loves. After Decorating and Shoes)

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Before I forget  - I don't shop at Pottery Barn much, but they are having a clearance sale and they have cute outdoor stuff and bedding, etc., under the "Summer Sale" (not sure if you need that coupon code) ... just FYI on the sale.

How cute are these bags!?  I just found them and ordered the first one.  They are really affordable, and are clearly similar to designer bags, but made from real leather, unlike so many cheap knockoffs.  And I wouldn't show them if they were putting "Hermes" or whatever on the bags, because it would be illegal. These are not pretending to be designer - they just look like them, at least in my opinion.  It doesn't say it anywhere on their site.  Anyway, here are the ones I love.  I pretty much want one of each, especially the pink tote halfway down.  That may have to be my next one.

Here is their storefront - called "Too Hot Bags":

And here is a second place that I like that does designer style bags:

This is where the second group is from:

While I'm spilling secrets, I'll tell you another one.  I *love* designer inspired (fake) jewelry.  Would I rather have the real thing? Yeah, probably.  But I've got kids to put through college!  So faux it is for now.  And here is my favorite source: Finders Keepers Jewelry.  And here's why:

 Can you tell who my favorite jewelry designer is? And these copies, at about $15 a piece, are amazingly close.  I have people tell me all the time "Love your DY bracelets."  Ha!  If they only knew. Well, maybe now they do ;)  Have fun shopping! 

Just a fun little break from room posts. Back to those tomorrow.

As I was looking at that jewelry I was thinking "that looks just like my DY bracelet only with different stones". Dont tell my husband about that site or I wont get the real thing anymore!
