Cheap Thrill: 5 Proenza Schouler PS1 Doppelgangers

We keep our aspirational handbag list fairly concise—only the most gorgeous, practical, and timeless purses make the cut, and taking the first spot in our hearts is Proenza Schouler's PS1. The leather satchel is all we've ever wanted in an everyday bag, but the near $2,000 price-tag makes this something we'll have to really save up for. In the meantime, we've found five other bags that have that distinct PS1 flavor. From a mini version to a substitute that's basically an apricot doppelganger, these bags habe the two-strapped, satchel-y goodness that's enough to stave off irresponsible spending—well, at least until we can slap down some plastic for the real deal.
