Luxe for Less: Birkin on a Budget

The Birkin by Hermes has become an iconic bag of fame and fortune recently, and its popularity doesn't seem to be wavering. Originally turning heads because of paparazzi photos of celebs toting these luxe totes, the Birkin has now become a staple on everyday fashionistas' list of droolworthy must haves.

The Pink Ostrich tote is probably one of Hermes' most outlandish Birkin designs; its vibrant hue and unique texture make it stand out among all the other handbags in every room. Yet something is so classy and chic about this Birkin that despite its trendiness in pop culture, it is a bag that could be carried for seasons to come.

Some of Hollywood's most famous celebs, like Victoria Beckham and Lindsay Lohan, have been pictured carrying this daring bag. Naturally, that means it instantly became highly envied by the masses.


Searching for the shape and style of a Birkin on an average budget? House of Maxi has a stellar lookalike! For just $99.95, you can score their Hot Pink Ostrich Tote and add this attention grabbing bag to your wardrobe!

I like the gold accents of the House of Maxi lookalike more, even though the ostrich detailing is way more upscale and authentic looking on the Birkin. For a bag that costs thousands of dollars, that is to be expected. However, for those of us unwilling (or unable) to dish out some serious dough on a purse, this Birkin lookalike may be as good as it gets.

How do you feel about the iconic Birkin bag? Do you envy it unabashedly, or do you not see what all the fuss is about? Let me know!
