#whyspendmore - Chanel Boy Bag ($5000+) vs. Rebecca Minkoff Love Cross Body Bag for $386.92 at ShopBop

Here's another style steal for those of you on a budget. Also a great option for Mother's Day. ;)

Chanel's boy bag range is extremely popular, but as most Chanel branded stuff even the smaller styles would cost you $5000+, and that's just a "can't do" for most people. However, you can pick up a Rebecca Minkoff bag from the Love Love Cross Body Bag range for below $500, which is definitely a great alternative.

Not only will you have an almost identical looking bag for a fraction of the price, but Rebecca Minkoff bags are also branded handbags (not ASOS, or no-name replicas).

There are a selection of colours over at Shopbop, which I find to be the most competitive retailer selling Rebecca Minkoff bags - black, pink, pastel green and denim versions will cost you $388.46 delivered. There are also more expensive styles for $427.96 and $467.46 (which are still below $500).

The bag in the picture would cost you $388.46 at Shopbop, $408.86 at Saks Fifth Avenue and $569.80 at Forzieri.

    Very clever picks vikk and I absolutely love the pink Chanel lookalike of Minkoff's. Personally, I couldn't justify paying a few thousand $$$ more just to have the Chanel emblem on the front. :p
