When I saw Mansur Gabriel’s circle bag, I became obsessed with finding an affordable similar style.
The first one I found was on Etsy but it was a little out of my budget.
The stronger contender on my wish list was from Zara, the price was right, the colors were really nice, especially the one Zara calls leather.
I had made up my mind that it was the one. Until, I walked into a new store at my local mall called Handbag Heaven https://www.handbagheaven.com/ and heaven it was for there on a shelf at the back of the store sat the ONE.
I immediately fell in love with its patent leather finish, the reinforced bottom that reminds me of Louis Vuitton’s Petite Malle and the gold hardware (I think it makes a bag look more expensive). Of the 3, it is also the most practical thanks to its detachable shoulder strap and two zippered compartments. The only downside is that it comes in so many cute colors that it was really hard to pick which one to buy.
