Look for Less: Prada Ombre Purse




The Prada Ombre Patent Leather Tote on the left is sooo last season, but ombre (or color gradations) is still very hot for SS08. If you're fond of the fade, the ombre tote on the right by Guess just might be your perfect purse for Spring. It's modern, structured and highly polished - but with an edge. Suitable for work or the weekend, it's a practical investment for $125. (Hey, cut me some slack - the Prada bag costs $2,270.00!)

>> Guess Shadow Large Tote at Guess.com, $125

This guess bag is an improvement from what they usually carry. I can't stand the guess bags that have guess written alllllll over them and are super tacky, and to boot way too pricey. I like this bag and think they are heading in a better direction.

Wow, I like the Guess bag better than the prada bag. I think the height and the gradient color is what draws me to the Guess bag.

There's also the Worthington bags at JC penny that has darker ombre tones and are even cheaper.

Great tip! I actually saw those in the store but couldn't find them online.

My local Express store also had ombre totes for $19.99 :-)
