Look for Less: Hilary Duff’s Zebra Bag

Zebra print is a hot trend for Spring, and what better way to rock this look than with a fierce purse? Hilary Duff knows what we're talkin' about - her $3,395 Jimmy Choo "Saba" printed pony handbag is just about as fierce as they come (although for that price, Duff could have flown to Africa, shot a zebra, and crafted an entire set of luggage using the skin - but that would be cruel.) If you're a fan of the black and white striped hide, try this Large Zebra Print Sac (right) from for the reasonable price of $47.52. It's budget-savvy, stylish and humane.
