    Default Foley + Corinna City Tote vs Nine West N/S Tote

    F+C City Tote

    Nine WEst N/S Tote


    Isn't it hilarious when you see lower-end brands copy an original trend that was set by a particular designer? Well, at least I think it is. Anyways, the latest copy cat who can't seem to get enough of snagging up those one of a kind designer handbag styles is Nine West. And what's even more hilarious is the fact they aren't even known for their handbags, but just their shoes.

    Here we have the original and wonderfully practical City Tote by designer Foley + Corinna up against, or shall I say way up above, the N/S Tote by shoe brand Nine West. And this is not the first I've seen as I have previously blogged on their cheap imitation of Valentinos' Bow Bag. But anyways, the innovative design that was created by F+C presents three bags in one. It can be carried as a shoulder bag, as a tote over the arm, or as a giant clutch. How great is that? And of course Nine West thought it would be a great idea to make their own F+C City bag and try to pass it off as one of their own original designs. At least NW used genuine "supple" leather, as it mentions on their official website. Though I'm sure it can't even compare to F+Cs' distressed, soft leather. And as for comparisons in price tags, F+C runs about $420 while the N/S bag by Nine West most likely struggles to sell at an unreasonable $195, which is now on sale for $149.99. I would never pay that much for a Nine West bag. So, which version would you go for?

    For the Foley + Corinna City Tote, stop over at Shopbop and you can visit the official Nine West webiste to view the N/S Bag.

    I like the F+C one. I like how its longer and slouchy. Plus, I don't like all the studs on the Nine West - the F+C looks cleaner.

    Actually the Nine West one does not look so bad, and is a good option for someone who does not want to spend much.
    There is a good deal on the F&C one(color-Bronze Metal) on revolve clothing: $294 and another 10% off with JT.
