Nitrolicious points us towards the second round of Contributor, Rachel Comey's micro-collaboration with Urban Outfitters. It consists of three pieces: A brown bootie with an attached change purse ($88), a pair of lace-front moccasins ($58), and a tall canvas satchel ($58.) Everything is very reasonably priced and inoffensive, but none of it seems quite as quirky as Comey's own line, and with her, it's all about quirk. We're also concerned about the bag's proportions: It looks big enough to be unwieldy but not big enough to carry a laptop, which is a deeply frustrating combination for some people. Bottom line: If you want cheap but recognizable Comey, you might be better off scouring eBay.
