Bags

So I know this blog is mostly about shoes, but let’s talk bags for a minute. And I mean this lovely Gucci Jackie hobo bag in particular. Now I’m usually not a big fan of hobo bags, but this one somehow caught my attention. Maybe it’s something about the shape, the minimalistic design, the luxurious leather or the statement orange color (my personal fave!). Maybe it’s a combination of all of these things that makes this bag so lustworthy and desirable. Anyway, as much as I love this Gucci bag, 3k for a bag just isn’t my type of bag shopping budget. So what’s a girl to do?

Tosca B2523 Bit Bag Hobo

Luckily, we’ve stumbled upon these Gucci Jackie dupe bags by Tosca which will give you the coveted Gucci hobo bag look for a mere 1,34% of the real deal’s price. Can’t argue with that price, right?

Real vs. Steal – Céline Trio Bag

by Irina on November 10, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on November 10, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

What is it about Céline handbags that makes me want to hand out my credit card, close my eyes and say: “But please, be gentle!“? I don’t know whether it’s the hype surrounding the French fashion house or the countless style bloggers toting around Céline beauties on their arm, but for some reason Céline bags have that enviable “je ne sais quoi“-factor that draws me to them. Not that I am anywhere in the position to actually buy a Céline bag right now. But not now doesn’t mean never, right? But until then, I’ll have to settle for a budget-friendly Céline Trio alternative, I guess.

UPDATE (08/25/2014): Spotted these fabulous Céline Trio alternatives at Old Navy today. These only have two instead of three compartments like the real deal, but for $25 who cares? I especially love that the bag comes in a beautiful cobalt blue. Soooo pretty! Also available in red, black and dark brown faux leather.

Apt.9 Triple Zipper Crossbody Bag

And the first one’s a total winner, right? These cute faux leather bags by Apt. 9 are a close match to the pricey Céline designer original yet they are currently on sale for a very wallet-friendly $19.99! Steal deal alert, woot woot! At this price, I’d probably get one in every color.

MICHAEL Michael Kors “Bedford Gusset” Crossbody Bag

If you’re looking for a real leather option and are are ready to invest considerably more, then this triple zipper crossbody by MICHAEL Michael Kors is a great Céline Trio alternative. $179 seems like a lot for such a small bag, but it’s still better than $1.500, right? Sadly, the best colors are already sold out including my personal favorite, a beautiful cobalt blue huels! Boohoo! Waiting for a restock on this!

Annabel Ingall “Jojo” Crossbody Bag

If you’re really dedicated to the look of Céline’s Trio bag but simply cannot spend as much, here’s another fabulous but also quite pricey designer bag alternative by Annabel Ingall which retails for $320. Size, color and shape of the bag are almost identical to the Trio, but the “Jojo” bag has an extra crossover strap.

We all know those little festive red carpet clutches are anything but practical or versatile, but they’re just so darn pretty, aren’t they? My personal favorite brand for those type of box clutches is Alexander McQueen. I just love the mix of beauty and morbidity that graces their famed skull clutches. What I don’t love though is their exorbitant price tag. $1.400 for a handful of baggie? I think I’ll have to pass, thanks.

Urban Expressions “Galaxy” Rhinestone Box Clutch

A great alternative to pricey Alexander McQueen are these Urban Expressions box clutches. I really like the blue version here! Similar look, but much nicer in price. I just miss the skull clasp on these. Also available in other colors.

Who could not love Nikki Reed‘s outfit here? A cool leather jacket, red lips and matching heels, a striped shirt paired with skinny jeans and big black shades – isn’t that a look pretty much every woman would approve (and one that would make almost every woman look good in)? It’s equally cool and casual, but also dressed up thanks to the heels and red lips and a little badass, too. Below is our budget-friendly take on Nikki Reed’s fabulous outfit. Do you like it?
