The Look for Less: Proenza Schouler PS1 Spring Edition

The large leather Proenza Schouler PS1 satchel in green is $1,955 at Net-A-Porter.

Bearing in mind the obvious differences in quality, you can get a similar inspired-by design with Mossimo for Target's messenger bag in olive, $34.99. I saw these in person and think they look great for the price. Click any image to shop.

I saw these in Target and carried one around for a while before putting it back. I am on a self-imposed cheap bag hiatus, but if I wasn't, I totally would have bought this bag. It is a fantastic substitute for the insanely-out-of-my-price-range PS1.
