A muted pink cross body bag has been on my wish list for a few months now, partly because I was inspired by my current favorite blogger/YouTuber Chase Amie's Gucci Soho Disco bag and partly because I just think it's such a pretty color that's currently lacking in my collection.
The Gucci bag has quite a hefty price tag of $980, so I looked elsewhere for a similar style and found one by Orla Kiely (of course) and another by Kate Spade.
Currently on sale for $219 (originally $258)
I like the top handle and dusky pink color of the Orla, but I like that the Arla is lined and has those cute tasseled zipper pulls, which more closely resembles the Gucci bag. Both feature a structured, boxy shape, front pocket, top zipper closure, and adjustable straps, although the Orla can be adjusted to an even shorter length, which I like. So which one do you think wins? Both are lovely options and have their pros and cons, but (for obvious reasons) I might be leaning towards Orla more :) Which one is your favorite?
