Luxe vs. Less: Chic Convertible Handbag

Designer Anna Corinna's collection of handbags are highly covetable and highly convertible - carry as a tote, hand held or with the shoulder strap for equally tony looks. Can't afford the real McCoy? Opt for these inexpensive, designer-inspired options instead...

Luxe: Anna Corinna Gunmetal Mini City Tote, $385 at Max & Chloe
Less: Metal Stud Convertible Bag in Gray, $26.80 at Forever 21



Luxe: Anna Corinna Tobacco City Tote, $420.00 at Max & Chloe
Less: Metal Stud Convertible Bag in Brown, $26.80 at Forever 21

Here's a similar looking purse we picked up at Forever 21 a few weeks ago. While we didn't realize it at the time, it's no doubt inspired by Anna Corinna's Black City Tote.


1) Carried as a tote indoors, it provides the perfect place to stash your gloves, hat and scarf.


2) Fold it over to protect belongings from snow and other inclement winter weather when you're on the go.



3) Lined interior features a zippered pocket; Convenient exterior zippered pocket keeps lip gloss and other essentials close at hand.
