I would have thought 4 for certain - the material looks cheap to me.

Of course #2 would be my favorite. Very impressed with the detail on #1 for the price.

i love #3. too bad it is the equivalent of 6 months rent. Have u seen the ruffled handbag at NY&co? I scored it for only $18 on Black Friday. Not real leather, but it feels so soft!

I knew #1 was the cheapest...but I really love #3. Too bad I can't afford it...what a tease.
