Look for Less: The Chanel Boy - Sensible Stylista

Look for Less: The Chanel Boy

A while back, I spent (basically) all my money on a Chanel Boy bag.  I had admired the brand for SO long - ever since I was a kid - and I had finally saved enough moolah to buy one.  I was hella poor but giddy like a 5-year-old opening presents on Christmas day, ha.  

It was def. an investment - in case you guys were wondering, I have zero regret  - but I work two jobs in addition to blogging full-time, performing, and studying for a doctoral degree AND second master's so treating myself is a necessity, ha!  My occasional splurges and at-home spa nights keep me sane and HAPPY.
With that said, not everyone can afford a boy bag hence I jumped at the opportunity to review Bag Inc's Chanel-inspired medium leather bag.  It's made of high-quality leather and has antique silver metal hardware.  To be honest, it really does look like the real deal from afar, haha.  What gives it away is the logo.  If you're lusting over the original design, this version is a GREAT alternative.  Available here for $109 (versus $4500+) in several colors.  

If you have any questions, shoot me an email (sensiblestylista87@gmail.com) or leave me a comment below.  I own both so I can give you feedback/advice.
