The Look for Less: Merona vs. Michael Kors

While this doesn't qualify as a "double-take," I was taken aback at the similarities between these two colorblock bags from Merona (at Target) and Michael Kors.

I'm very familiar with the Kors bag (at left) because I've been eyeing it for awhile. I no longer see it online on Kors' site, and according to one of their recent mail catalogs, it's now only available in stores. The Merona bag offers a similar colorblock vibe but in an opposite pattern - with white side panels and contrasting black front and back. Both bags can be held as satchels or convert to crossbody style. But the Kors bag clocks in at $360 - which is WAY out of my budget - whereas the Merona bag is just $34.99.
