I would just buy the Botkier Convertible that this bag is a knockoff of- it's around the time of the season where they will get quite discounted and Botkier leather is to die for!
I had no idea this was a copy of anything - Thx!!!
You are certainly welcome. I don't think Hayden Harnett purposefully copied Botkier, but they sure look similiar.
I think you will be much happier with a Botkier - and right now it's 40% off at The Purse Store:
I haven't shopped around for the best deal on this bag, but 40% sounds good. You might want to google a bit before you purchase in order to find the best deal.
I wanted to get a Botkier for a while and finally had a chance to feel the leather of the Botkier. Very disappointed, it was very stiff for the Stirup (the one I loved) and awkward to carry on the shoulder. And the leather on other models are softer but they don't look that good in real.
The HH bags are very cute. I'd love to hear from someone who has both and see what the differences are?
i don't like the botkier pebbled leather, it's way too stiff. the non-pebble is great, but it seems like they're making more stuff than ever in the pebble.
i actually like the hayden-harnett a lot better than the convertible. the botkier isn't nearly as cute in real life.
