The Hermes Kelly You Don’t Have to Save For

Guys, I saved the best dupe of the year for last. The bag I’m featuring today is a collectors item. If you’re like me and you love luxury then you know the holy grail of all bags is a Hermes, my favorite is the Kelly, black leather with gold hardware to be exact. If you’re also like me then you don’t have 10k or more lying around to purchase one *deep sigh*. Thats where my research started, there had to be another designer creating the look for less. Youtube led me to the first feature, designer Teddy Blake. Upon their company launch they sent bags to youtubers and bloggers requesting they use the bags and review them on social media platforms. The consensus across the board was really positive. The bags are a 100% Italian leather, handmade with pristine craftsmanship. Most importantly, to the untrained eye, very similar to an Hermes. While significantly less than the Kelly price tag, this option is not cheap. The Teddy Blake Eva will run you $400 and up, which in my opinion is a fair price for a classic, genuine, leather bag.

The second feature was found while browsing amazon and significantly cheaper than the first at $115. This brand is called Ainifeel and seems to be a longstanding designer. A lot of the reviews were positive and noted that this bag was a second or third purchase from the brand. This option is also leather but does not match the quality of the first. The hardware has more of a sheen, inexpensive look, as well as the stitching not as intricate but overall it still favors the original Kelly and well worth the lower price tag.

Whichever you choose, it sure to curb your Kelly craving util you get a hold of that 10k 🙂
