From High to Low: Python Purses

Here's a little game to help you get past hump day: One of the six python handbags pictured below costs $6,550, while one costs just $25. Now I know that PVC is a far cry from python (although I think it's a much more humane alternative), and I know it's tough to judge the quality of these handbags from tiny thumbnail-sized images on your computer screen, but humor me and play along—unless you'd rather be working? Thought so. Scroll down and see if you can rank these 6 purses from the most expensive to the least expensive. Answers after the jump.

Target has some really cute python clutches right now. Just got a blue/gray mix one. So affordable!

I 'd pass up these bags...leopard or animal-jungle skinned bags are not my type.

Wow, I actually did pretty well on this quiz. And I'd take a #5 over #3 any day!

Python really isn't my thing, but I'm still on the lookout for a great leopard-print bag.

And it definitely was difficult to figure out which one was the most expensive! I think #4 is my fave - it's a great shape.

Have you got any of these? x Leia

Grr! Before i saw the prices, I picked #3 as my favorite. Just my luck...it's $6,550! Wayyy out of my budget!
