Mini shoulder bags like this one by Chloé have become a summer staple due to the sartorial appeal and trendy coral hue. I love the golden embellishments drawing attention to this compact handbag. It’s the perfect size to carry one’s most prized possessions without the bulk. Whether it’s the papaya-like color that I can’t get enough of or the feminine silhouette, regardless, I don’t have $795 to invest. But that’s why we have an alternative below!

Real vs. Steal – Chloé Darla Shoulder Bag

by Roseanne on April 18, 2012

Update: This post has been updated on April 18, 2012. Scroll down to see the new add.

One of the biggest trends right now is 60s inspired wear, ranging from clothing, footwear, and handbags. This Chloé “Darla” Shoulder Bag demonstrates this 60s inspired appeal, which is exhibited in more of a modern way with an emphasis on sophistication. The lady-like silhouette complements the vintage aesthetic, by which this handbag is impeccably tailored. Though I usually associate Chloé for its affinity of neutral and tan hues, I appreciate the boldness of the red color. Seemingly, this bag shows off a feminine and vintage charm and I really love Rachel Bilson’s modern take on this trend.

This bag is quite practical with an extra strap so that it can be worn like a crossbody bag. This increases the level of convenience without losing the elegant and polished aspect. This bag is available in black, burgundy, taupe and whisky (faux) leather.

Miranda Kerr pulls off easy Hollywood glamour as she steps out to run a few errands. Of course the Victoria’s Secret model is already gorgeous, but also stylish as well. Picking up on the neon trend in a bubblegum pink sweatshirt, and adding tomboy flair with some distressed denim shorts in a relaxed fit. But what really pulls the entire outfit together are her accessories: A fantastic neutral colored bucket bag, a pair of adorable ankle boots with a very southwestern feel, and finishing off the look with face-framing aviators. Scroll down to get more details on Miranda’s young and hip ensemble, and where you can snag the same pieces that are in her closet!

In Miranda Kerr’s Closet…


Miranda Cosgrove was one of many starlets to attend the 25th Annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles yesterday. The young actress looked edgy-slash-sexy-slash-fabulous wearing a beautiful blue leather mini dress by Porter Grey which she paired with a gold glitter clutch by Edie Parker and black high heeled booties. Love this look on Miranda!
