D is for Dooney & Bourke

I went to a fake purse party this weekend.
I asked some of my blogging friends what I should get.

This is what I wanted:
Leather Giraffe Chiara Bag
$450 if real (but just $88 if fake)

This is what I got:

Leather Giraffe Slim Wristlet
$75 if real (but just $18 if fake)

I like to have real pictures in my post, so here is a picture of a random girl who is a member of Dooney & Bourke Lovers Anonymous on facebook.

Wordful Wednesday is fun too! If you haven't been here before, please tell me your FAVORITE kind of purse. I am curious.

I want to go to a fake purse party! What a great idea.

Gabe's Girl said...

Well, I live too far (Texas), but if my private jet were still working, I could go. We can dream we had a jet once, can't we!

Alicia said...

Oh..very cute bag & matching wristlet!!

Very cute!

Daphine said...

Oh! How cute is that!!! Sounds like a party I'd like to attend!!! Why didn't you invite me? lol!

My favorite kind of purse is one that will hold everything but the kitchen sink and then magically weigh on 4 oz!!

The Incredible Woody said...

Meant "only 4 oz!!"

I love that bag...I think I need to have one of those purse parties. Too fun!

uncleawang said...

Nice bag & look original.Well in my country Malaysia,fake goods is very popular..to get original is very expensive.
Have a nice day.

okay now - where do you live - have you seen my handbag obsession??? I MUST be in on this party!!!! AND I adore that first bag - but the prices are too high for a knockoff!!

Karen Deborah said...

One of my aunt's niece's is in the selling end of this business and she is making a small fortune. Big bucks in this, maybe you should sell instead of buy.

Liz said...

Glad that you had a good time at the party.

drewmark19 said...

Oh, you gotta go get the matching purse. (The "cheap" version, of course!) :)

Grandma J said...

My favorite is anything that has compartments for my stuff, and no shoulder strap.

I'm partial to leather.

Jules from "The Roost" said...

Cool purse! I love it. Great bargain too!

thezeninyou said...

My favorite purse...oh gosh, I used to be so into purses! I love Isabella Fiore bags, but they are heavy! Today, I like to find purses in little bohemian shops that are unique...(and don't cost my kids college tuition!).

BTW...how did the photo shoot go??

photowannabe said...

That sounds like my kind of party. What fun. I think you got a great purse and your choice for the letter D is perfect.

Becky said...

The purselette is very cute. Love the print. My purse is from Mervyns which doesn't exist anymore so does that make it highly collectible!?! LOL, I think the label is lina.

Lene said...

Yes, please - just give me one of those ;)

Have a nice day :)

blueviolet said...

I would have done the exact same thing and bought the $18 version. Or I'd go to Target and just be real with myself.

DD said...

Love the new purse!! My "D" is coming...I have an idea, but it was a crazy day yesterday...look for mine later tonight!

Busy Bee Suz said...

So cute and so much more economical. I love a cute lil' wristlet myself!!!

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

I like it alot! Very nice.

I'm just the MOM said...

I'm totally in love with the bag! What company was that fake purse party with? I may have to contact someone and order!

Allison said...

Fake purse party...that sounds like fun!

I am a Brighton girl myself, but I have a Dooney and also a Coach!

Reader Wil said...

It sounds nice:" Fake purse party". It's again something new to me. Great photos!

Brenda said...

Love those purses! But I have never been to a fake purse party!

Diane said...

right now i'm carrying a chanel. i'm not too much about having a lot of purses. i'd rather have the ONE perfect purse and carry it everyday. i've been carrying it for 2 years and it still looks brand new.

happy ww!

mimi said...

I love that purse! Love the wristlet too---nice find.

angie said...

Such a cute bag.......I want it too! :)

Tumblewords: said...

Strange. I never think about a purse - just what I put in one. :) Consequently I can't tell what's fake and what's real, but inexpensive is good. Neat post!!

RR Mama said...

Thanks for the prayers! I am so sick of being sick. I think R8 is going to post so the three readers I have dont' worry I have fallen into the couch never to get out! I love your D&B purchase! If you don't tell anyone they would never know, promise!!

jennykate77 said...

Love that purse! Good choice!!

Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday!!

Kimber said...

I've been to a fake purse party before. I got a Louis Vuitton. Love the bag you chose.

scrappysue said...

HappyWifeHappyLife said...

I must say..... I REALLY like these giraffe purses but there is NO WAY IN HADES that I am spending over $20 for ANY purse. LOL.
(You know me, Rebeckah.... Super Cheapskate Woman....!) :-)

Janie said...

The little purse you chose is cute and functional. What more can a girl ask?

tara @ kidz said...

Oh my I am so in love with both of those purses!

When I was single and could spend money on purses and other fabulous frivolities, I had a few Kate Spades (on sale of course). I think my style has changed, though. I'm not suer what I like anymore!

richies said...

What's with the purses? Just kidding, but really men just don't get it. good post though. Thanks for the heads up on my post. I guess Mr. Linky and I got confused. I have added the correct link at the end of the "D"

I wanted to tell you that the comments you left on my blog about the woman who had 8 babies and the evolution post were so well thought out and articulate. Thanks for taking the time to be thoughtful in your comments..Not many people are..

Purses are one of my vices! I have far too many but I love them all, I don't know if I have a favorite though, probably the New York Designer Michelle Lalonde.
