I really like Rue Princesse bags (discount at TJ Max), leather is incredibly soft, and they made pretty well for everyday use...

Oh that is nice!
Kind of reminds me of the Chloe paddington hobo because of the beaten up leather but much more original looking

Those Betsey Johnson bags are really hot around here. Most of them look like Mulberry (what I thought they were at Bloomingdales) crossed with Chloe (all the whipstitching). They're MUCH more affordable though.

they all seem like they have something very close to a high end designer bag...i dunno, i understand being tired of the "it" bags, but if you're buying bags from a lesser known designer that just basically copies the basic design but uses hardware/materials/easier pattern shapes to cut the cost....does that make it better?

I dont' think a lot of these do copy other 'designer' bags. A lot of them are unique shapes and designs. If you want a copy of a designer bag, just cheaper using different hardware you can go to any high street store.

they are nothing like these high end bags! Don't you know that most of these top fashion designers actually look to young designers and vintage for their "inspiration"?
Especially John Galliano, Marc Jacobs and Phoebe Philo who are reknowned for going to vintage markets and buying stuff to rip off - why do you think going into a Chloe store is like walking into a vintage shop!
One lady at Alfies Antiques Market told me Galliano is there nearly every week!
Can you actually give an example of which of the lesser known designers we have posted about has copied which high end designer?

well said. maybe they have less exposure but some of these designers have been designing bags before the current 'it' bags were around. don't get me wrong, i have 'it' bags too and love them. i just don't think they are the only ones with a certain level of originality.
