Real vs. Steal – Chanel Quilted Boy Bag

Oh boy! I think I might have a new favorite Chanel bag! I’ve always thought I would never like a Chanel bag more than their classic flap bag, but seeing the quilted version of the Chanel Boy bag below makes me reconsider. It’s edgier than all the classic Chanel bags and I love its modern twist. It looks fresh and new yet still remains to be quintessentially Chanel. Not sure how much this baggie retails for, but I do know that I’m not able to afford it. Boohoo!

Jessica Buurman aren’t quite as discrete with their Chanel look-a-likes. Their “WLLIET” bags which, by the way, come in 28 different versions including the gorgeous emerald green velvet version that I absolutely love, are pretty much spot-on Chanel Boy dupes. Just wish these were genuine leather, but oh well you can’t have it all I guess.

Budget Look – Cozy Meets Elegant by BP.

by Irina on November 5, 2015

Today I felt like doing a new budget look after seeing so many gorgeous (and budget-friendly) fall staple pieces by BP. at Nordstrom. I didn’t follow a predetermined concept on this one, but simply put together what I thought would look great together. And if you’re an avid reader of this blog, you will easily recognize a lot of designer inspiration in many of the pieces shown below. We have some Burberry, Chanel, Isabel Marant and Michael Kors inspirations going on in this look. So what do you think? Did I do a good job on this one? Can you see yourself wearing this outfit?

I’ve always been a fan of Stella McCartney‘s iconic faux leather “Falabella” chain-trimmed tote and this new, updated version with its Chanel-esque quilted texture sort of softens the bag’s edginess and makes it both trendy and elegant at the same time. But as pretty as this bag is, it still costs a pretty hefty $1.575. Sadly, this beauty of a bag is out of my league budget-wise.

Steve Madden “Btotes” Quilted Chain Tote

Luckily, this quilted Falabella dupe by Steve Madden isn’t though! It may not necessarily be an identical match to the luxurious looking Stella McCartney bag, but it’s still lovely nonetheless. The non-quilted version can be found herels (various colors available). What do you think? Yay or nay?

I think we can all agree on Instagram being the no. 1 must-have app for fashion bloggers. It has become an extremely powerful tool for bloggers in the last few years and no personal style blog would be complete without a matching Instagram profile. Nowadays, you don’t even have to have a blog anymore to make it in the fashion world, a viral Instagram account is enough to make you rich and famous these days. And while I must admit, I was quite sceptical about all the Instagram hype at first, now I’m a total Insta fan. That’s why I’m absolutely loving this playful Instagram bag by Mua Mua. It’s so darn cute, but spending £225 on such a trendy item seems very unreasonable in my kind of budget situation.

Melie Bianco Selfie Camera Bag

Luckily, I came across this Instagram inspired “selfie” bag by Melie Bianco which will give you the same Instagram look, but for less than $40. Sure, Melie Bianco’s version is faux leather and not as detailed as the Mua Mua bag, but for $39 I’m not one to complain.
