I’ve been looking for a new handbag for fall and this Diane Von Furstenberg handbag caught my eye. I didn’t even read through all of the description – the snakeskin and shape was exactly what I was looking for. Shopbop had a 25% off sale a few weeks ago and I was sold.
I was so excited when my package arrived last week, but as I tore open the package I was surprised to see what was in front of me. PLEATHER?? Does Diane Von Furstenberg sell pleather purses?
I was in a rush to meet up with a friend and decided to wear it out. My friend immediately noticed my purse and asked me why I’m now wearing pleather. I was mortified… I just paid nearly $300 for a pleather purse. Sure, why pay $50 when you can pay $300??
Finally, I took a look at the Shopbop description. Buttery leather? I decided to keep the bag – the bag is just too cute and versatile to return. I think (?) I’m getting used to the upscale pleather look. What do you think? Would you wear a faux pleather purse?
