Save or Splurge?, Vol. 6: Green Satchel Handbag


Save or Splurge? is a post where I’ll show you an item from Target and its higher end version that probably inspired it.

Target just gets it sometimes. Like this green satchel handbag…I mean besides the texture of the leather (the splurge is lizard, the Target is not) and the chain detail on the strap, these are the same bag to me. The difference in price is unreal: $510. That’s like roughly 25.5 cardigans, which are very important to me. The bag on the left is Alice + Olivia (here), is super pretty, and will run you $545. The bag on the right is Target and costs $35 (here).

I get that quality is a difference maker, but this is a pretty good dupe to me. What do you think?

    When first saw the picture, I thought the one on the right was the expensive one! That’s a beautiful bag, reminds me a lot of a Kate Spade bag.

    I’m with AJ! Also the one on the right is a dead ringer for a grove court maise. Pretty sure I’ll be getting one.
