Nicole’s Look For Less: The Valentino Studded Bag on a Budget!

    Hi girls! I love looking at beautiful fashion pieces, but when I see them I always think two things: 1. Is this modest and inspiring? 2. Can I recreate this look for way less?

    When I saw this Valentino bag online, I loved it, but knew I could find a less expensive version!

    Here is the Valentino bag–with a price tag of $2,000!

    And here is a beautiful and affordable option from Forever 21! This bag is $40, 1/50th of the Valentino bag’s price!

    1. that is so cool! i have a great idea on valentines day or any day i call it LOVE LETTER MISSION we should all write a love letter to somebody and tie it to a ballooon and let it go but dont put any personal info on it and that way we can give someone some love and some hope! thanks for the other letter idea i will try it! thanks oh and i take no credit for this

      • Well I have to vouch for the real leather thing. I treated myself to an expensive Coach purse (a girl can indulge every once in a while, right? ;)) and it has held together MUCH better than any of my 6 other cheaper purses
