You can't tell me this handbag from Danielle Nicole doesn't look like it's worth far more than $75. Designer Danielle DiFerdinando got noticed while she was interning at Bergdorf Goodman and started bringing in a different handbag of her own design every day. Before long, she was creating cosmetic bags for the department store. Around 2008, during the recession, DiFerdinando opted to stop designing with leather and turned to more affordable options.
This shoulder bag can double as a clutch when you remove the strap. The grommets are fairly reminiscent of Balenciaga. Multiple zip pockets give ample room for everything from lipstick to a wallet. And you'll get more compliments on this than anything you could buy for ten times the price.
If you're in Las Vegas like me, you can find Daniele Nicole at Coterie, but major department stores such as Nordstrom and Macy's also carry the line.
