Who can say no to a Valentino bag? One that is roomy enough for all your essentials and even can double as a weekend bag (yes, you would need to pack lightly…). And bonus, it’s a tote bag that won’t get out of style. So hands up if you would say yes to the Valentino To Be Cool Tote (what’s in a name?) also known as the Valentino Tote With Braided Handles (again what’s in a name?).
But what if you love the bag but not its price tag (£1,755/€1,980/$2,995)? Of course, you can wait until you win the lottery or your can search for a high street alternative like this Mango bag. For the fraction of the price (£19.99 (was £39.99/€49,99/$79.99) this bag can be yours while you save up for the real day or wait until you hit the jackpot. What will it be? Splurge or save?
