If you’re a Taylor Swift fan, I’m sure you’ve noticed that the pretty singer has frequently lugged a cognac-colored shoulder bag with multiple compartments on it.

The American singer-songwriter has been sighted with it more than a dozen times, most recently on Monday this week, so I got curious. She carried a hand-stitched crossbody bag while shopping at Anthropologie in Beverly Hills.

Last month, Taylor toted the same bag with an outfit with a scoop-neck striped silk tank from Theory and Mackenzie lace-up oxford shoes from Cole Haan.

Looking up the maker of the bag was an easy feat. But finding the bag itself was impossible. It turns out that Taylor’s tiny three-sectioned purse is a creation from Ralph Lauren. It belongs to the Collection line and is inspired by vintage military cases. You won’t find the bag anywhere online, so you’ll have to search on foot if you want it.

If you’re willing to settle, a close sister called the covered lock cartridge bag is available on the Ralph Lauren website for $2,895.

I find shelling out almost $3000 for a tiny purse too much to stomach. If you’re just after the look, why not save all that money and grab this crossbody purse from Nica instead?
