Made in India
A few weeks ago I went to Miami for a brief (and very random) few days. One of my finds was this faux-coral studded purse/box from Luna Designs: a store specializing in belly-dancing attire and fashion/accessories from India.
It wasn't just the metal and coral that drew me in, it was the success of a fashion bargain that left me beaming. You see, two hours before stumbling on to Luna Designs, I had dragged my poor bf to Zara. I spent a few minutes drooling over a purple studded purse-box (that looked exactly the same as my Luna bag), but convinced myself that $88 was just too steep. The fashion gods were feeling generous and let me pay only $35 for mine at Luna Designs. Ah sweet, sweet victory (I'm genuflecting right now).
P.S. If coral is not your thing, they also had a purple one (a la Zara) and another with turquoise. They don't have these specific purses on line, but I would just drop Luna Designs an email and give the fashion gods a nod.
