Which one of us wouldn’t love to carry a Bottega Veneta tote as our beach bag this summer as we stroll out in the Hamptons, Daiquiri in hand? I know I dream about it every day of the week as I sit at my office desk. However, for about 99.9% percent of the world, a Bottega Veneta isn’t exactly in the monthly household budget. There are so many companies these days that are doing their best to capture the BV look for a fraction of the price, without overstepping copyright law. The latest to come to our attention is the MNG by Mango Basketweave tote from JCPenney. At $39.92 I would say this is a chic but cheap replacement for those of us trying to live the champagne lifestyle on a beer budget!
