What: Mauro Zagliani Python Puffy Bag
Why: Obviously we're not the only ones who fell in love with this gorgeous handbag. The pricey design would likely have sold out on its own, but with celebs like Cindy Crawford and Jennifer Lopez sporting it as their latest arm candy, the Zagliani was guaranteed to become hard to find. At this point, even eBay isn't showing much available.
So we've done what any good fashionista would want–we've found you some similarly styled alternatives. They ain't the real deal, of course, but they still look awfully good, plus they come at a much lower price point. Try these on for size and see if you don't feel at least a little more fabulous.
Banana Republic's Fillmore Snake-Embossed Deep Satchel ($248) isn't made of true python, but it sure does a good job of faking it.
A Ginette Etc Mama Bag ($624) has the same snake-embossed patent leather look plus the pleating that we love on the Puffy bag.
This Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile & Python Satchel bears an uncanny resemblence to the lighter version of Mauro Zagliani's design. The only problem–it also costs about the same.
