The Look For Less: Marni Balloon Bag

Last month, we gave away Cameron Diaz's canary version of this Marni Tabacco Balloon Handbag ($1,320) and you all flipped for it. I, too, have been lusting after the shape for many months; the only thing keeping me from springing for one of my own is that steep price.

To see the look for less,

Thank goodness for Forever 21, right? I can always look to my favorite fashion-on-the-cheap brand for affordable lookalikes — this Forever 21 Tropez Faux Leather Hobo ($32) is pretty spitting image of the Marni bag, for only a fraction of the price. Now I can love it and live it . . .

The other bag you are talking about is the Derek Lam red purse. It was right after the Marni Balloon. That winner has yet to be posted as well.

OMG thank you Opheliadrowning. I seriously thought I was going crazy because the giveaway entry date ended like over a month ago, and I have yet to see a winner post! I have been asking Fab for like three weeks now, but I have yet to get an answer, I mean I would like to know so I can give my congrats to them and ask them to borrow it and all!
