The Look for Less: Rebecca Minkoff 'Julian' Backpack

Get the look of Rebecca Minkoff's 'Julian' backpack for less.
You guys know I love a leather (or faux leather) backpack as a stylish alternative to a diaper bag, and it doesn't get much more stylish than Rebecca Minkoff's 'Julian' backpack in supple leather featuring a unique diagonal zipper design.

While I would gladly carry this beauty in any of the 11 colors offered at, the fear of coconut creamy crumbs filling the interior crevices makes me shudder...I don't think I could pay $295 for something that would inevitably get beat up with day to day use.

Enter this backpack at Kohl's, just $22.40 on sale - similar silhouette, mom-friendly faux leather! Also comes in a rose gold metallic, which is similar to Rebecca Minkoff's gold metallic version.

Even if you're not a mom-on-the-go, backpacks are trending big for fall...and these are two great options to consider for your new fall "handbag"!

I honestly like the fake better! Pebbled leather is a bit of a pet peeve for me... I'm sure the real leather feels amazing IRL but a bunch of my fakey-fake purses from F21 growing up were pebbled, so it's associated with cheapness in my head.
