dressed up like a lady: Who can hook me up with a fake?

Who can hook me up with a fake?

Hey, does anybody know where I can score a knock-off of Prada's Tessuto Ricamo Sequin Tote in Black? From I think 2009?


I'd give my right eye for this ridiculous looking thing! Except I'm not exactly a quadruple-digit spender when it comes to accessories. And it's from three years ago anyway.

Oh, but the briefcase handles! The framed top! The gigantic, vertical shape! The semi-insane way it looks ENCRUSTED with gaudy sequins! I can't believe I never found that Steve Madden or whoever had copied it. Did I miss that? Or is there some hardcore bag maker on Etsy that could approximate this mofo?

  3. Cammilla, I googled 'sequin tote' and found a couple more affordable options. They aren't as cool as the Prada, but they're way more affordable. I liked the ones by Lane Bryant (!) and Bebe the best. Good luck, it's awful getting your heart set on an outrageously expensive bag! :)

    1. Iknowright?! Thanks for the tip, I'll check those ones out. I've been pondering a variety of possibilities. But in the end, I think the things I've been so in love with about the Prada tote are the particular details to this one bag -- the briefcase handles, the elongated shape, etc. Maybe I'll just have to love it from afar! ;)

  4. If you found a bag that shape (roughly) anywhere (Target, TJ Maxx, etc.), any seamstress should be able to just attach a black sequin panel to one side. I speak as a seamstress :)

    1. Really? Thanks for weighing in with your expertise! I suppose that if I could find a bag that had everything else I'm so hung up on besides the sequins, I'd be in business. The hunt is on!
