Not Celine (or Michael Kors, etc.)


Old Navy wins this round. In Apple-sanctioned rose gold, this Celine trio ripoff is perhaps as elegant as the original. How about those tiny, discreet gold-colored studs securing the strap? And I love how the scratches give the metallic surface some character (i.e., the purse actually looks like its made of leather). Got it for $7 at Northgate Mall. The other copycats use primary or earth colors and/or cheap chrome hardware. Anyway, the original isn’t a revelation itself (it’s just a lumpy pouch when filled), especially when offered at discount for $899 from Groupon, of all places. Groupon!
