Sunday Steals: Alexander Wang Rocco Mini Duffel Bag on a Budget

Darlings, in le left corner we have Alexander Wang’s wondrous Rocco Mini Duffel Bag – the very same one seen toted about by Rihanna, Kristin Cavallari, Ashley Tisdale, Nicky Hilton, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Jennifer Carpenter; in the right corner take a gander at the amazing Alexa Studded Calfskin Leather Bag in Black from Bag Inc.

While the Alexa is ever so slightly larger in size than the ravishing Rocco; for just $149.00, as opposed to the $875.00 price tag seen upon le ultra-covetable Wang, it is every bit as capable of adding a splash of sophisticated sassiness to one’s handbag collection – at a price that is utterly irresistible for the cheap chica!

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


Fashionably yours!

Oh, I'd love that. But even the cheaper one would be out of my price range, too.

Really cute bags!

briannelee said...

If I had the extra money to spend, I would splurge on the AW one.

Natasha said...

I would choose the Alexa bag, but I do like bags with longer straps, and faux leather. Good choice of bags, though.

Josie said...

If I had the cash, it would 100% be the A.Wang one! But for now, I'll have to go with the cheaper version.

This is such a great bag to have. So glad there's a cheaper one.

Cindy Whitehead said...

I think it's such a well known design - I'd feel funny about the less expensive version.

Kavery said...

Pretty cheeky knocking off such a well-known bag. It is a good copy though!

lapetal said...

Im so glad to have come across your blog again after i had a look at my old blog from last year!

I would pick the alexander Wang one simply due to the soft brown leather look!

I am amazed by your ability to find these. though here, for sure I like the Alex Wang version. Am a sucker for great leather.

Maddy said...

An exact replica! Though I'm sure the devil is in the details. I bet the Wang bag's leather is incredibly soft and luxurious!

Megan said...

To be honest, I never really cared for Alexander Wang. But, there is one pair of shoes he designed that I'm dying to get my hands on.
