A little backstory! I have been trying to find a mini backpack to serve as my everyday bag/purse for quite some time now, for it’s easier on the back. I originally wanted to purchase an Anello Backpack but it was very hard to find a reliable seller, style and color I was in love with. I wanted a bag that would compliment my new Kate Spade wallet that I purchased at their outlet store in Camarillo Outlets–which was such a steal at that price. Since was the wallet was black with gold hard-wear I wanted a bag also had those accents. It’s actually not too hard to find a backpack with gold hard-ware, it’s actually quite popular. But, the bags I liked were out of my budget. Then I discovered a site called MochiThings and found backpacks from a brand called Monopoly. I was really happy with the way they all looked. I noticed one was very similar to the Anello backpacks but just a little more trendy looking. The best part is they have a black backpack with gold hard-ware. Unfortunately, the Anello backpacks did not have that style (they had one with silver hard-ware only) so I decided to go with the Monopoly backpack instead. Okay, I know it’s an obvious dupe of the Anello backpack, which I think could be possibly a touchy subject. I understand some people might think I shouldn’t support a company that copied. But, the backpack had everything I wanted and I’m happy with my purchase.
