I finally stopped in a Bebe store... and checked out the bag. It's really cute, but it doesn't look like it would hold up very well. Plus, one of the corner studs was missing.. it would be cute for light things, but not for tons of stuff. I'm thinking more like stuffing it with clothes..and your everyday purse items, but not books. I also stopped by an Arden B store and they had Jelly Kellys, as well as a pink leather Birkin replica. Of the 3, I purchased the leather one from Arden B. The Jelly Kelly didn't look like it would hold up as well. I was wondering... has anyone purchased a Jelly and had it break? Because that's the first thing that went through my mind..

I was thinking the same thing about those jelly bags and that's why I got a faux crocodile birkin look alike. Plus I still think that the jelly bags are a bit expensive (online at least)... obviously not as expensive as the real thing but pricey considering they are only made of jelly. A leather or faux croc one would at least last you for more than one season so to me it's worth the price.

I've seen the Jelly Kelly's *everywhere* now. I must say, they always happen to catch my eye. Haven't seen anyone carrying it as of yet. I want one.. I think they're totally cute. I don't personally see them as a knock off.. yes, it has a similar shape, but, damn, the thing is made out of plastic jelly not italian leather. Not like anyone is going to come up to me and think I'm carrying a Hermes..

I'm waiting to see how I feel about them in a couple weeks. If there's lots of them going around I'll forget about it. I buy too many things and they end up collecting dust in my closet cuz I didn't wait to see how I really felt about it. The last time I wanted something then was so glad I didn't buy it were those pointy Timb boots.. ugh!

Now there's a marketable idea.

If you ask me, everyone's copying the Luella Bag!!! If Hermes came first, then I say...... The luella bag is still cuter than everything else!



Instead of the ugly key, this one has hearts.

I shop at Arden... I dunno, I think it tends to be a bit overpriced. They also have pink and blue jelly kellys now as well...and pink "papillon" shaped jelly bags with a jelly bow on the front

After seeing a few Jelly bags... I think I have already given up trying to buy one. They seem cute, but when I saw them in person...I knew I'd break them in a week with all the junk I carry. They would be cute for the beach though. In a few months, I'd love to know how other people's jellys are holding up.
