Q. I have been searching for a similar handbag to the Kooba Avery Tote that I saw Vanessa Minnillo carrying in 2008. Before I totally give up, can you recommend something similar or one in a reasonable price range? I love the style of this bag, and although this is so last year's bag, it would be great to find something similar.
A. I love this bag too and it's very hard to find now. We found some great alternatives that have the same sort of lived-in luxe look of the original Kooba Avery - and all under $200.
