Have you ever wanted a product so much that you were willing to justify the sticker shock? We certainly have: There was that famous Augustinus Bader's $180 Rich Cream (been there, done that, no regrets). Or the $1,200 55-inch Samsung Frame TV we fell head over heels for that doubles as art (worth it). Thanks to TikTok, however, we don't have to reach nearly as deep into our pockets for a gorgeous, designer-looking bag—specifically the $6,900 Bottega Veneta Intrecciato nappa bag. That's because the Melie Bianco Brigitte satchel the internet has found is extremely similar looking and available for as low as $128 at Anthropologie—but probably not for long.

TikTokers like CaitlinJaymes have been raving about how well-made this vegan purse is, highlighting everything from its super soft polyurethane and polyester lining to its zipper styling, timeless design and fit (it has a 4-inch handle drop that will fall nicely on your shoulder). It's also slightly taller than the Bottega bag, which clocks in at 10 inches tall and 16 inches wide compared to the Melie's 12 inches tall and 9.5 inches wide.

That's good news if you like to carry more stuff than not (yes, there's room for your hairbrush, sunglasses and hand cream). We also love its inner slip and zip pockets, which will help keep you nice and organized.

"I ordered this based on a couple of other reviews that looked really promising, and it totally delivered," one Anthropologie shopper wrote. "The quality is great, and it’s a wonderful size. I'm super, super happy."

Another shopper says the bag is like "a big croissant" but cute.

Right now, it's available in three colors: mint, tan and black. However, black is currently on backorder and isn't estimated to ship until around March 30.

Based on how obsessed TikTok is obsessed with this bag, we imagine the other colorways will follow suit sooner than later. (You know what to do!)
