If I had to think of a designer that the royal family loves the most, I would immediately think of Carolina Hererra. Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are always seen on red carpets or on daily excursions wearing Something from the ultra-luxury brand known for its exquisite dresses and drool-worthy accessories. Each of the beautiful ladies has been spotted in pretty much everything Carolina Herrera has to offer â overcoats, dresses, etc. So it was no shock when Meghan stepped out donning an adorable handbag from the brand last week at the Invictus Games. What was more surprising was that in doing so, she coincidentally matched the Queen of Spain, Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano, who was carrying the same bag a few weeks earlier.
When of them the royals wear the same thing, you know that’s good.
The brown leather mini shoulder bag has a unique square structure that widens and rounds at the bottom. Not only does it come with a long adjustable shoulder strap, but it also comes with an adorable top handle that adds a subtle layer of sophistication to the piece. The sealed flap that secures everything inside is just an added bonus.
Now, before you get too excited about this royalty-approved handbag, let me warn you: it costs a whopping $1,500. Yeah. I felt the same when I found out. But this led me to look for a similar looking bag that I could wear for the summer. All the elements of designer style make this the perfect carry-everywhere handbag, after all. It is small but can hold the essentials, it will be comfortable to carry thanks to its shoulder strap, it is neutral because of the tan color and it is super chic. What more could you want?
Fortunately, my mission was a success â and more. I found seven different handbags from Nordstrom, Tory Burch, Kate Spade, and Amazon that fit the bill (but cost so much less). Starting at just $40, these handbags make great designer dupes. I wonder if there is a way to let Kate and Meghan know.
