Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” – must be screamed with as much passion as Marlon Brando does in the classic movie, A Streetcar Named Desire. Stella McCartney please, unchain my heart and wallet from this gorgeous bag you’ve designed! But, my dear and fellow vegan, more than a thousand dollars for a bag that’s not even real leather? Ummm, on what planet does this happen? Oh yeah… how could I forget, the planet named Hollywood!

For many years, I’ve been anti-flats, especially the closed ones. I can’t really recall why I disliked them so much, I guess they just never really spoke to me. However, now that I’ve been dipping my toes in the fashion world for a few years, I grew to like flats. As long as they look so cute like this one from Carven. Isn’t it adorable? I love the slingback bow, it’s such a cute detail. Would I spend $540 on a pair of cute flats though? Well, that’s a complete different story.

Now doesn’t this outfit of Blake’s which she wore back in May for a photoshoot totally scream 70s to you? And sexy, it also screams sexy, don’t you think? I mean, just look at these over-the-knee boots combined with these long legs, that blonde wild mane of and that voluptuous pout. We liked Blake Lively‘s retro-meets-sexy look a lot, so here’s our budget-friendly take on her all-black outfit. Did we nail it or not?

Chloé has created quite a few “It“-bags in the last 10 years, but it’s been rather quiet on their bag front lately. Well, that’s not entirely sure because there’s one bag that is currently making the rounds and getting a lot of hype and exposure – the “Alice” tote, a large two-tone bag that has the shape of a classic doctor’s bag. I’m usually not a big fan of colorblocking on bags, but this one I find very pretty. I really like its classic elegance and clean lines and the gold hardware gives this bag that extra oomph. But this beauty comes at a price. At $2.195, to be exact.

Gianvito Rossi is slowly but surely taking my heart by storm with his shoe collections! I can’t remember anyone of his shoe styles lately that I wasn’t fond of. This woven multi-strap sandal, for instance, I like it a lot. It’s a couple of seasons old already, so I couldn’t find many details on it, but I’m pretty sure it would’ve been out of my price range anyway.

Apparently Forever 21 liked Rossi’s woven sandal concept, so they came up with a neat dupe version of their own. F21 ditched the bronzey metallic color and instead opted for more wearable colors, as well as a much nicer price tag, of course.
