a cute satchel purse with bow

I was browsing around the Macy's purse section and stopped at this really cute purse. I've noticed satchels are really in right now.

I love the clamshell opening and the studded bow.

This is a size reference but I would wear it on the lower arm. So cute in the "mocha" color. It's more pinky taupe than mocha.

After browsing the F21 site I saw this cute purse that reminded me of the Carlos one.

Which one do you like better?
I like the Carlos one because it really caught my attention in store. The downside is that it's too big for me and the price. The F21 one may just be too cheap...
