There are few things on this earth more precious than owning a coveted luxury bag. (You'll be mine one day, Chanel 2.55.) But until I start earning big-girl bucks, I'm always looking for great pieces that won't keep me from paying my monthly rent. That's where Forever 21 comes in. I know, I know. I'm closer to 30 than I am to 21, but I couldn't resist this faux croc box bag when I first laid eyes on it. It reminds of those miniature purses that Bella and Gigi Hadid are often spotted carrying. You know the chic Stalvey bags? Well, instead of the $11,500 price tag, this one only costs $23.

I have carried it every-single day since I bought it, and people will not stop telling me how much they love it. I was even stopped by an employee in the Gucci store! If that's not affirmation, I don't know what is.
