Not Guiness, this LuLu is affordable and cutesy cosmopolitan. With all the It bags and subsequent knock-offs, getting the “where’d you’d get that” effect is tough. But step out of the mass e-tail box and hit up the online boutiques, proprieties of bijou designers, and you’ll find contemporary design with detailing that follows the trends but lacks the xeroxed feel of the fashion herd. Though truth be told, Lulu handbags aren’t exactly a secret with the Special Edition Oversized Biker Chic Hobo, the ‘Official VMA Main Bag’ for the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards, and Lulu’s camo duffle was the exclusive gift bag for the 2006 Emmy Awards.
It’s all in the details: quilting, chain links, grommets and studs, brassy hardware, animal prints, girly clutches, and BIG bags. Lulu has it all in the current collections with some bags on sale for $21!? Can’t beat that online deal.
