Luxury for Less: Valentino Rockstud Tote
Here's another great bargain - a studded leather tote of equal or almost comparable quality to the luxury designer label featured today - Valentino.
In earlier posts, I talked about the stunning rockstud handbag and shoe collection which I snapped at the Valentino store in Singapore - Current Obsession: Valentino Rockstud Clear Studded Sandals.
Recently, I found the MICHAEL by Michael Kors collection Selma Studded Saffiano Tote from Neiman Marcus that looks equally or more stunning than the original rockstud version for just $428 than compared with the hefty price tag of $2,000 for a mini Valentino rockstud bag.
The Michael Kors version comes in 4 different colours - black, white, taupe, purple and red (not pictured above) and has a stiffer leather frame as it does not come with a clip buckle on the rockstud tote that helps fasten the mouth of the slouchy soft leather bag.
Below is a picture of the original Valentino rockstud tote. Which do you prefer?
