real or steal: Celine luggage purse

Hey there. 
You have heard me talk about my wishy-washy stance on "copies" or "knock-offs" of designer products before, and here I am talking about it again.
I have seen the amazing Celine Luggage tote on the arms of celebrities and fashion bloggers alike, and definitely have purse lust (I seriously want to pet that supple leather),
But at over $1,000 a pop, I have to laugh at the idea that I will ever own a purse that luxe.
When I spotted purses from Shop Suey and J.Crew that seemed "inspired" by the Celine purse, I fell in love all over again, but this is a love I might one day be able to afford.
{Left: Shop Suey $68.00; Middle: J.Crew $328.00; Right: Celine $1,000+}
So what do you think?
Would you snag the Shop Suey bag to rock the luxe trend this spring, splurge for the J.Crew option, or save up (for years!) for the Celine original?

Decisions, decisions!

  5. Can I tell you I love you for this post.. I hv been looking and lusting over the Celine and the J Crew bag. I might do J Crew and the cheapy one (because of the color options).

    Thanks, no really!!

  6. That Celine purse is amazing. Definitely not in the budget though. I'll stick with my Target purse for now :)
