I get so excited when I find a good dupe for a designer bag that I love. I am not one to drop several hundred $$$ on a bag. I’d rather make an extra car payment than do that. So, when I found this dupe for the Clare V. bag that I have been loving for the last 2 years, I knew I had to have it. Straw bags are all the rage and this one is only $48 and by a GREAT (and one of my favorite) brands. That makes it a dream come true. When it’s a brand you love and trust and they make the perfect dupe? Snag it up! I had a similar straw tote bag from the same retailer last year and absolutely wore it to death. I still wear it occasionally and it held up great considering I wore it nearly every day during the spring and summer. Straw bags are such a great spring and summer staple and a big trend again this year. They are everywhere, but here are a few that won’t break the bank.
