Each year, I look out for a new shiny bag I can make my partner in crime for the holidays. This Kate Spade Sequined Long Shoulder Bag ($375) totally fits the bill. I dig the long strap and how the texture is imperfect. Bummer it's so expensive.


See the look for less.

It's no Kate Spade, but this Steve Madden Broxy Black Sequin Bag ($38) comes pretty darn close. It has the same extra-long straps and the imperfect texture. The only difference is, the Spade version is slightly more rounded. Oh well, no biggie, it still dazzles. It'll be even more darling as a cross-body bag.
