5 for 5? That makes you a savvy shopper who has an impressive taste for luxury brands.
If you missed a few, no worries! Keep in mind that if you can't spot the most expensive, there's a good chance that those passing you by on the street won't be able to either. Designer brands are an investment that will last, but that doesn't mean you can't stay up on the latest style with affordable alternatives. For now, get the faux leather and keep your eyes peeled for those pieces you'd like to purchase in the future.
