Alexander Wang's handbags are to die for. Each one is more unique and badass than the next. Compared to other designer bags, their price tag isn't horribly bad, but it still stings. I especially dig this Alexander Wang Brenda Zip Chain Bag ($725) for its compact size, hard-core feel, and the soft gray hue. During one of my recent bag hunts, I discovered a similar bag for way less — shall we see it?
To see the look for less,
Volcom has come out with a bag that's quite similar to Alexander Wang's version. It's this Rebel Belle Handbag ($35, originally $38). OK, so it doesn't have the authentic chain handle, and the color is darker, but it does have that grungy vibe. If you can afford the original, I say go for it, but if not, this is a good alternative.
