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!
