Real vs. Steal – Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal Flap Pouchette

by Roseanne on January 24, 2012

Many people and celebrities alike have that specific “out-the-door handbag” which is often both fashion forward and easy to carry around. Currently trending is this Metal to the Petal Flap Pouchette by none other than the cross-body handbag specialist Marc by Marc Jacobs. It’s everything that I could possibly desire in a handbag; featuring gold embellishments and being the perfect size whether I’m leaving out the door or preparing for a grander event. Unfortunately, the price of $248 is simply too expensive for me, thus we have a great alternative which is both chic and budget-friendly.

ASOS Bird Across Body Bag

ASOS has always been one of my favorite stores because I can always find what I need for a lesser price and the clothing is still very stylish. Confirming that theory is this Bird Across Body Bag. Though it’s slightly different than the Marc by Marc Jacobs cross-body bag above, it still features similar ornamentation like the bird appliqué and gold hued embellishments. Besides the more affordable price of $35.81, it is available in mint green and lilac.
