I admit I wasn’t too familiar with Barcelona-based bag brand M2Malletier before writing this post, but when I read up the brand’s history, it instantly reminded me of Mansur Gavriel because both brands were founded in 2012 by a female design duo (in this case Melissa Losada and Marcela Velez) and both brands are best known for their minimalistic designs. Recognizing an M2Malletier bag shouldn’t be too hard as they all have that signature metal bar top handle the brand is so famous for. M2Malletier key design elements include rectangular shapes and clean lines which supposedly is due to the dominant influence of architecture, the most important source of inspiration for the designer duo. And even though M2Malletier bags aren’t quite as hyped as Mansur Gavriel’s, it’s still quite hard to get your hands on the best-selling designs such as this handmade “Fleur Du Mal” shoulder bag. The price of $1.560 isn’t really helping either, of course.

Forever 21 Faux Leather Crossbody

I didn’t really expect Forever 21 to come out with an M2Malletier dupe anytime soon as I assumed the metal bar top handle detail would be way too costly to produce to fit into the brand’s narrow price range. Apparently, I was wrong. Because just look at this budget-friendly beauty of a bag! A spot-on “Fleur Du Mal” dupe for under $25! A quick reminder: the real deal comes in at $1.560. Now that’s what I call a steal deal!

Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” – must be screamed with as much passion as Marlon Brando does in the classic movie, A Streetcar Named Desire. Stella McCartney please, unchain my heart and wallet from this gorgeous bag you’ve designed! But, my dear and fellow vegan, more than a thousand dollars for a bag that’s not even real leather? Ummm, on what planet does this happen? Oh yeah… how could I forget, the planet named Hollywood!

‘Tis the season of the trench. One of the classic essentials to every stylish girl’s wardrobe, this must-have is a safe return on investment. You can wear it on any occasion; from going out over a cocktail dress or with jeans and a feminine blouse on a hot date. It will take you from the airport to an elegant dinner, and you’ll look just as chic. For a piece like this, it’s really important to look for quality. And quality is something the iconic Burberry Trench has, but spending over a thousand dollars isn’t the only way to invest. Take a look at our other option below.

Mango Double Breasted Trench

Lucky for those of us who are on a budget, great quality can be found at an awesome price – if you know where to look. This gorgeously tailored trench by Mango, pays homage to the original silhouette and close attention to detail with its tortoiseshell buttons and flattering seams (in all the right places). Ladies without trenches, at $159.99, this is surely a wise addition to your closet.

Where’s the party at? Well, wherever you choose to wear these hot Brian Atwood pumps! But before I start to bust a move, I have to clear up two things: I am pissed and confused! Pissed at the fact that I passed on adding these riveting pumps to my site’s inventory! Confused by the fact that I rarely see Jessica Simpson on the red carpet or out and about EVER in her own beautiful shoe collection! And yet her she is, in this gorg Brian Atwood pump; slapping down a cool $1500 before this baby sold out!

YSL. In my head, that stands for yummy shoes, love!—and these Essentiel T-Strap Sandals by Yves Saint Laurent are a stellar example why. Have you ever seen a heel like that? Totally swoon-worthy. And with a price tag of $895 it’s not just the heel that has me gasping for air. Dang!

bebe “Iris” Architectural Sandals

Question: Is it blasphemy to think a bebe sandal looks better than the shoe it was inspired by? Because if loving the bebe “Iris” Architectural Sandal more than YSL is wrong, I don’t want to be right. Although Iris is not a t-strap, she does have that architectural heel, and blessings be, the price is also well under two bills. From the moment I spotted this shoe it has been haunting me. I waitlisted myself for it, got my notification, and they are currently en route to me. If they look half as good in real life, you’ll be seeing them again in a photo…on my feet. Available in dark gold and black.
