Saw these two bags today..they are quite similar in the fact that both are Patent and a very vibrant Red, but thats where all the similarities end.
Am totally digging the Tory Burch in Red; it is vibrant, fun and perfect to dress-up or dress-down an outfit. I can see it being carried to the beach, to lunch or just on and about the town. The Red might just be what your bag-wardrobe-soul needed for that immediate picker-upper! The bag looks great even in Black for that matter, so, for the not-too-adventurous-won’t-stray-from-black-brown-bags kind of people among you, it would be a great option at $ 350.00
Now, the second bag is a whole different ball game. It is a Kate Spade Tracy Patent Satchel and is all things ugly. The Red, the perforated patent leather, the 14 Carat yellow gold hardware, are all that contribute to its basic lack of visual appeal. The Tory Burch patent bag has gold tone hardware too, but it works. On this Kate Spade bag however, it quite doesn’t. How do I say this delicately, but it quite looks like a bag a “working-girl” would use. At $ 395.00, its a whole lot of garishness.
What do you all think.. which one do you prefer?
