The High/Low: Bow Bags

These feminine purses aren't too sickeningly sweet

My love of bows is no secret. So when I spotted 3.1 Phillip Lim's newest bag, it was love at first sight. But since Santa seemed to overlooked that item on my wish list this year, I scouted out the most inexpensive version to fit my post-holiday shopping budget. Here's the lowdown on these two purse picks:

High: The metal studs on 3.1 Phillip Lim's Edie Bag cut the sweetness and add an edge to the girly bow adornment. The gray-green suede shoulder bag features silver hardware and mesh detail, and can be worn across your body ($695 at

Low: Kimchi Blue's Crossbody Bow Bag is a not-quite-but-almost copycat take on the Edie bag. The faux leather purse includes a similar long shoulder strap, petite bow embellishment and wicker detail. Plus, there's a pretty floral lining inside ($38 at Urban Outfitters).
