Elliot Lucca Does Valentino
This beautiful braid trim "Historie" bag by Valentino comes in purple or pink patent leather. It's distinct enough of an everyday purse to not be boring, but it's not trendy enough to be dated in three years either. Perhaps that's why Elliot Lucca snagged key elements of the look for their "Penelope" shopper, available in black, white or gold. While I think the designer purse is much prettier, it's almost $1,500 more than the department store version it inspired.
