Celine $1,000

Banana Republic $120

I am loving the current craze for color-blocking!  It is not just clothing that gets the treatment this spring, you can get in on the trend with accessories that mix large pieces of color for a look that really makes a statement.

I fell in love with this Celine handbag, but I knew it was out of my budget.  You can imagine my excitement when I stumbled into my neighborhood Banana Republic and discovered the Color Block Market Tote, a beautiful genuine leather look-a-like, at a fraction of the cost.
