Want This, But Can Afford That

I just lust, LUST over Alexander Wang's bags. Can I afford them? No...Well if I want to go homeless for a month I can rock an awesome Donna Washed Hobo bag to the office and out on the town. But search for a good affordable alternative. I usually look to Steve Madden to help my fashion needs below the ankle, but this time they have filled a new void. So the next great option to my handbag dreams is the Balexa. At a fraction of the cost, this bag is similar to Wang's beautiful creation. It has the similar rough, punky zipper details. There are a ton of pockets for me to put all the stuff I schlep around with me every day. There is a reason I have shoulder issues. The Steve Madden version comes in 3 colors, black, white, and blue. I think the blue is a perfect option for the warmer months. The color is fun and goes with everything; it will give any outfit a pop it needs. I see myself wearing it with skinny black jeans, a black flowy top, and killer heels. The bag deserves to be the center of attention all on its own.
