Sunday Steals: Fendi Leather Spy Bag on a Budget

Kitty cats, on the left we have Fendi’s luxurious Leather Spy Bag, an accessory that has literally overtaken the celebrity world, having been seen upon the arms of everyone from Jessica Simpson to Hilary Duff, Gwen Stefani to Ashlee Simpson, Kim Kardashian to Ashley Tisdale, and countless others; on the right we have Handbag Heaven’s Classic Secret Agent Bag.

Though the Handbag Heaven pretty is constructed out of faux leather, as opposed to real; for just $42.46, in comparison to the $2,250.00 required to take the Fendi home, it is every bit as capable of bringing the frugal fashionista a splash of star style on a budget. Plus, it’s available in six colors (black, red, mustard yellow, pewter, cream, and blue) – so you can style yourself with a different one nearly every single day of the week!

Your turn loves…will you be thrifty or suckered into putting on your spendthrift cap?


Fashionably yours!

Wow, I know I could never afford what Jessica has. I really like the cheaper version of it.

Jessica said...

I feel a little conflicted about this one, since it's such an obvious rip off. However, I could never afford the luxe version, so bring on the Handbag Heaven bag!

Great find as always! Have you seen the modekungen.se Alexander Wang inspired bag? It's pretty much identical to the original!

Love the post! xx

ryan said...

Wow, they look the same. I'm all about looks over labels! And I think the mustard colored one sounds very interesting : )

Theresa said...

I never realized that I own a wannabee Fendi purse until right now, due my apparent lack of attention to purses. haha I actually have one exactly like the one on the right, and think it's fantastic. :)

Dancing Branflake said...

Cute cute cute! And I love mustard (the condiment and the color!)

Couture Carrie said...

I'm all about thrift! Especially when so many of the pieces I get the most compliments on are from Target, Ross or Avon! :)

Happy Sunday!

The Fendi one is just gorgeous, but *sigh*, it's a tad too expensive for me.

I wouldn't buy the Fendi, but the quality difference in this one is really visible.

Sarah said...

Usually,I love saving,but I am in love with the Fendi purse!

Embodying Fashion said...

I really like both of them but I would buy thar from Handbag Heaven.

L'Amour et la Paix said...

The Fendi bag is stunning! I wouldn't go for the cheaper one, only because it'd look too much like a designer knock-off. Nice thrifty find nonetheless! xo

MarchMusings said...

In my dreams I'd carry the Fendi but in real life I'd have to settle for the other :(

Natasha said...

I would have to get the real deal. Fendi, all the way. Hope you had a good day.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

The cheaper version is FABULOUS and looks just like the expensive one, if not better. :)

Oh, how I wish we could go shopping together. You would save me BUNDLES, I know! Sigh.

la petite fashionista said...

love the original Spy bag, but would never have the moolah to buy it! :D

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

Have you seen the episode of Sex and the City where the girls are in LA and buy fake Fendis and then Samantha mistakes a girl's bag for hers? So funny! Hope your weekend was wonderful!

Mimi said...

It's way to expensive for what it's actually worth, but dreamy nonetheless!

Best,

Erika,
I thank you very much for your comment on my blog! It made my day to see somebody had commented on my blog after I finally came back home.

I love the Fendi, of course. But hey, if you can get it cheaper somewhere ;)

lucy and sarah said...

These are great. The way I want to change out bag, I better go with the cheaper one.

Keith said...

Hey there. I do love that Fendi. Thanks for your comment on my last blog post. It was great hearing from you. I hope all is well with you. I'm looking for a new job, plus I'm thinking about going back to college. Take care. Have a wonderful week ahead!

Maddy said...

Aint nothing like real thing!! I've been eyeing the Fendi Spy for ages and I "must" get my hands on one before I turn 30!

Rachel said...

If only I could spend that much on the Fendi version! It looks like it's Handbag Heaven for me!

Purses Pastries Etc... said...

I've been a Fendi fan from the very beggining so I'm gonna stay with the original -- great copy though :)

(Don't know if my previous comment came through; if it did sorry for the double!)

Style, via TIa said...

They look similar but there is nothing like that real Fendi bag! The details make it all worth it.

briannelee said...

I hate faux leather but the cheapo one is cute!

this free bird said...

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Awesome find! I am all over the one from Handbag Heaven.

Emily said...

I'd go with the cheaper version! $2000 on a bag is just a bit out of my price range ;)

The Owl's Closet said...

Oh man, I've loved the spy bag for years now! That is such a great alternative to the real thing. They look so much alike!

Meream said...

I'd definitely go cheap. There is something so reptile-like about the expensive one and I hate me some weird-looking bags. Haha

A La Mode et Plus! said...

Thank you for introducing me to this fabulous website!! I didn't purchase this exact bag, but I found two others that I adored. New to your blog, and really loving it!
Bisous!

style'n said...

handbag heaven for sure!

MizzJ said...

Hmm they both look nice! I think I could go for the cheaper one IF I didn't know it as a Fendi knock-off; otherwise I would just feel fake carrying a "fake purse"!
