Time for some Chloé goodness again. The French fashion house really is on a roll with their newest line of “It” bags everyone is lusting after. We’ve already covered the “Drew” and “Faye” and now it’s time to talk about the “Hudson” which is actually a whole set of different Chloé bags coming in different shapes and sizes, all of them exuding that iconic Chloé boho-vibe with their tassels and fringes. And yes, sure, this is undeniably a gorgeous bag, but can you imagine spending more than $2.000 for this sweet little mini bag?

Sole Society “Exie” Mini Fringe Shoulder Bag

Luckily, I stumbled upon this cute Chloé alternative by Sole Society which will give you the coveted Chloé boho look for a whole lot less. Sole Society’s version is a little larger than the real deal Chloé, but I actually prefer that because I can’t see my wallet, phone, keys and lipstick fitting comfortably in the Hudson mini bag above. “Exie” is available in cognac brown or black faux leather (with genuine suede tassels) for $59.95.

BagInc “Renee” Faux Leather Fringe Bag

Deal: Use promo code “SPRINGBAG” to get 15% off your entire order!

BagInc has also a good looking, spot-on Chloé Hudson faux leather dupe available in various beautiful colors for the budget-friendly price of $69. You can even save some more (15%!) by using the promo code above. FYI: A few weeks ago I received an email from a reader who was having issues with her BagInc order (long order processing and unsatisfactory customer service), so please proceed with caution, prepare yourself for a possibly longer shipping process (products are being shipped from Hong Kong) and if nothing helps, there’s always the possibility to file a dispute with PayPal or your credit card company. I own a couple of (genuine leather) BagInc bags and was always very pleased with both the shipping duration as well as the product quality, but that’s been quite a while ago now, so I can’t fully vouch for the company at this point and thus wanted you to be aware of this.

Budget Look – Vacay Mode

by Irina on April 29, 2016

It’s almost May which means it’s time to start thinking summer wardrobe. The weather here has been so depressing lately that I needed some sort of fashionable pick-me-up to lighten my mood, so I started dreaming about a summer vacation in Greece or Italy and all the stylish summer outfits I could wear there. And just like that a new budget look was born! This outfit has a strong focus on fringes and ruffles, a cute and casual summer look. Do you approve?

Budget Look – Cookie Monster Blue

by Irina on March 22, 2016

I’m usually not a big fan of faux fur jackets, but when I saw this cookie-monster blue concoction by n:PHILANTHROPYls (make sure to check out the rest of the collection, it’s amazing!), I was for some reason totally smitten and instantly had a thousand outfit ideas that revolved around this fluffy royal blue beauty of a jacket. One of these ideas was to pair it with a light knit pencil skirt, nude ankle boots and a matching funky handbag, so that’s what this “budget” look is all about. What do you think? Is this outfit a hit or miss?

I swear Céline makes the most lustworthy bags on the planet. And this Classic Box Bag rocketed to being no. 1 on my personal wish list. For the last 2 years, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect medium sized satchel bag in a classic shape and as soon as I laid my eyes on this particular Céline bag I knew it was “The One“. Then I cried out in utter desperation; $3,400 for this small boxy bag? With all due respect to Phoebe Philo and her incredible talent to create the most coveted bags worlwide, this price is absolutely outrageous and unjustifiable! When did designer fashion get so overly expensive anyway? It’s a worrying development in fashion I noticed over the last few years. But I digress…

GoJane Buckle Strap Satchel

In terms of quality and longevity these Céline bag look-a-likes by GoJane are nowhere near a close match, but they’ll give you the same coveted look of simplified elegance and, most importantly, these satchels are actually attainable for the masses by costing less than 1% (imagine that!) of the original. Now if that ain’t something to think about. Looking at the stated bag dimensions on the website I assume the GoJane bags come in the mini size rather than the medium size, but at $30 a pop I’ll take one in every color anyway.
