You had me at “Balenciaga.” Really. No need to add “Giant City Bag,” but since they did, oh… swoon. I’ve loved this species of Balenciaga bag for years, but the supersized, gold-studded version is to. die. for. Except for the killer price tag, natch.

Handbag Heaven Broad Ripple Satchel

So I totally dig Balenciaga’s Giant City Bag, but I’m not about to fork over nearly $2K for it. Lucky for me (and you) there are several high-style, low-cost alternatives, starting with this version from Handbag Heaven. And need we remind you that there’s a little special going on at Handbag Heaven? Even better. Available in black, bronze, pewter, brown, white, purple & red (phew!).

Baghaus Forever A Squared Handbag

Of the three Balenciaga Giant City Bag look-alikes we’ve featured, the Baghaus versions are my favorites. The Forever A Squared Handbag is synthetic, but the crinkly look makes it totally believable. If you’re anti-leather, it’s a wonderful (and chic) alternative.

Baghaus Tara Patrick Tote

Also a strong contender for best (almost) Giant City Bag is the Baghaus Tara Patrick Tote. It’s just like the Forever A Squared Handbag above, except that it is a couple inches larger and has silver hardware instead of gold. Both Tara Patrick and Forever A are also available in other colors.

  • Vanessa Hudgens looks great with this Giant City Bags.

  • Gwen

    Kourtney Kardashian’s shoes are awesome! Any chance for a Real vs. Steal on those?! =]

  • Carolina

    @Gwen I was thinking the same! I love those, but I can’t afford Louboutins just yet 🙁

  • @Gwen & Carolina: No look-a-likes, but at least somewhat similar in style:

    Nine West “Chaney” Peep-toe Pumps

    Thank you, Irina
