Alexander Wang

UPDATE: This post has been updated on April 12, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

You know how I know we’re good? Because we never forget a shoe. Or a handbag. Or a face. OK, so not the last one. Back in the old days (you know, 2005) the fashion world saw the introduction to the “It Bag” – a bag that became every starlet’s must have accessory. One day, readers (stay with me), Mary Kate Olsen was spotted carrying a gorgeous black, studded bag that no one could identify but that everyone immediately wanted. A year later the bag (eventually attributed to the talented, Alexander Wang) was made available to the public. It was then known as “Coco”; it is now known as “Rocco”; I can afford neither one.

Melrose Glam “Alexa” Studded Leather Bag

UPDATE (04/26/2011): I just stumbled upon this fantastic and virtually identical Rocco look-a-like by Melrose Glam which is available at BagInc. Love it! It’s a little pricey, but a) it’s made of real leather and b) they offer free worldwide shipping on all orders of $99+. Plus, you can get 10% OFF your entire order with our exclusive coupon code “INTHEIRCLOSET“. Yup, that’s how much we love you! ;-) – P.S.: I now own this bag and it is AH-MAZ-ING (review here…)! So, so worth the investment! Just read the various 5-star customer reviews. Also available in various other colors.

Street Level 78080 Studded Duffel Bag

UPDATE (10/05/2011): Found another Rocco alternative by Street Level. It only comes in taupe, has 2 added tassels and it is also faux leather, but the price of $68 makes up for this.

Ajito Studded Bottom Satchel

Wet Seal Stud Bottom Satchel

I have to be honest, the last time I shopped at Wet Seal I was looking for something to wear to the school dance (in other words, it was 1998), but by golly perhaps Wet Seal deserves another look! Their Stud Bottom Satchel is a pretty darn great dupe of the Alexander Wang bag. True, it’s not made out of leather, but I know there are vegans among us who actually prefer that. For a mere $24.50 this is a hot bag to add to your arsenal.

I have to admit when accessorizing with jewelry, I tend to go for silver. And these Anais loafer pumps by Alexander Wang are no exception. A beautiful shiny yet matte loafer with matching tassels that will look awesome with an all red ensemble or, of course, with the always proverbial play-it-safe black. But at $650, I’d rather take a pair in silver plated, please. ;-)

Topshop “PLANET” Flared Heel Platform Moccasins

Well, what planet are you on? Um… a cheaper one that’s selling this very cute “Planet” platform by Topshop! Absolutely loving the exaggerated platform and the fact that it’s available in black and silver for under $200.

Jeffrey Campbell “Zealous” Wedge Pumps

OMG, this knock-off is my favorite! I’m jealous of any chick who has this wedge and overzealous writing about this hot “Zealous” heel by Jeffrey Campbell. OK, it’s not the cheapest knock-off we’ve ever discovered, but a wedge like this must be in your fall lineup. Available for $169.95 in awesome fall colors: silver (as seen), black & bronze (paired with rich browns & oranges will be hot). At least the fashion style tips are FREE!

Real vs. Steal – Alexander Wang Donna Hobo Bag

by Vanessa on September 15, 2013

UPDATE: This post has been updated on September 15, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

Last year it was the Rocco bag that made its way around Tinseltown and with one very good reason: it’s AMAZING! The shape was reminiscent of an 80s duffel bag that got a makeover at the fabulous factory and the stud detail made it a great choice for day or night. Though the Alexander Wang Donna bag got less attention, it certainly didn’t lack in the celebrity love department. The bag’s differences made them like distant cousins or perhaps fraternal twins. The Donna is slouchy, only suited for day wear and like its name explains, a hobo bag. But, it is still – oh so perfect!

Urban Expressions Slater Knotted Messenger

If the price tag is just a little too much for you to get your Wang on, then this Urban Expressions messenger bag is your next best bet. Both versions share the same shape, silver hardware, a center zipper, knotted shoulder and front camera-style pockets. If you buy it, we might just be twins, but the identical kind.

If I ever want to add a dash of sex appeal, I usually reach for a pair of sky-high heels and instantly I feel transformed. But these Alexander Wang Metallic Sandals are in a league all their own. They are one part mysterious and two parts siren, and how gorgeous is that metallic rose gold? Unfortunately, they are completely sold out, but you can snag a similar pair for a fraction of the original $495 price tag. Check out the steals below!

With Alexander Wang it’s always hit and miss for me. One season I’m all over his designs, the next one I might find myself asking WTH? – Luckily, A/W 2011 was a good season for reinstating my good faith in Alex’ design skills. There were many shoes I liked from the collection including these shield-like high heeled open toe sandals named after Liu Wen (Wang names all of his shoes after one of his model muses).

Angelica Blick For NLY TREND Knight Shoes

So prior to writing this post I did a quick research on who Angelica Blick is. Turns out she is a well-known Swedish fashion blogger who collaberated with Nelly to bring out her “own” capsule collection. I wonder how much she was involved in the design process though; often times celebrities just lend their name to something and have no creative control over their projects. Anyway, as you can see her “Knight Shoes” look almost exactly like Alexander Wang’s Liu heels. They have a few slight modifications, but it’s quite obvious where the inspiration came from.
