Seeing Double: Longchamp and Nordstrom

I love coming across items that I do a double-take and wonder “haven’t I seen something like that before?!” The last time I did that was a pair of Alexander McQueen look-a-likes at Charlotte Russe.

I’ve found another look-a-like. This time it’s not as close as the McQueen-Russe connection, but it’s still pretty close! It’s a look-a-like of the infamous Longchamp Le Pliage tote made famous by its usefulness on a college campus. It’s lightweight and perfect for carrying a notebook, pens, and a book or two. Plus, it zips completely and because of its nylon exterior won’t be damaged by getting caught in the rain.

Anyway, compare the original Longchamp Le Pliage tote to the one I found in the sale section at Nordstrom…..

Longchamp – Le Pliage Large Shoulder Tote – $128

The Nordstrom option…

Nordstrom – Getaway Tote – $33.98

This one is almost the same exact dimensions, on sale for $33 (normally $58). The only real difference is this is canvas rather than nylon. Still if you want a cute similarity, for $100 less, head over to Nordstroms website and pick up one of these look-a-likes.
