Real vs. Steal – 3.1 Phillip Lim Edie Bow Studded Bag

Rachel Bilson is one of my style-crushes. I pretty much fall head over heels for everything she wears. I love that she is neither obsessively trendy nor yawningly classic; she lands somewhere in the middle. So naturally she would choose 3.1 Phillip Lim‘s Edie Bow Studded bag as her go-to accessory. The bow is of course unapologetically girly, but the studs add a roughness. The size, too, is perfect. Obviously Rachel agrees as she appears to carry it constantly! Rachel isn’t the only one, however; we’ve also seen this bag on the shoulders of Diane Kruger, Leighton Meester and Nicky Hilton. I’d love to add my name to that list, I really would, but it’s the same old song: too pricey and sold out.

ModCloth Star Light, Star Bright Bag

Well, well, well, look what popped up on ModCloth? There is absolutely no denying that the Star Light, Star Bright bag was heavily inspired by the Phillip Lim Edie. From the bow to the studs to the embossed leather – ladies and gentlemen: we have a dead ringer. With the much more manageable price of $30, this bag is sure to be a huge hit.
