So before I start my internship I really want a soft leather/black/tote that can transition from work to off the clock that says: "I am professional/chic/timeless/fashion forward". I feel like (along with the rest of the female population) the perfect bag to fulfill this need is the Hermès Birkin. But I am not Victoria Beckham, I can't afford one nor 80 like she does. So I have been looking for alternatives that have the similar style and message of the Birkin. Here are some front runners:
Marc Jacobs Jen Satchel
Chloé Victoria Tote
I want a bag I can carry to work or a meeting with documents, ect and then head out after for dinner. I know the ones I have chosen are designer but I do want something that will last me a while (until I can buy that Birkin for myself!) and that will remain a timeless piece in my closet. I really like the Mulberry, but I feel like it looks TOO much like a Birkin. Almost trying too hard? The Chloe is my favorite. I like the Marc but I feel like its kind of plain for me. What do you all think? Any other ideas?
