I am currently totally crushing on everything black and white. I also happen to have a total crush on the beautiful Annabelle from the fabulous personal style blog VIVALUXURY. And one of her recent monochrome outfits. I mean, how amazing does she look here? So seductive yet still very classy and elegant. Absolutely love the look! That’s why I decided to recreate it for you on a budget-friendly level. What do you think of my style blogger look for less? Did I nail it?

I already have gushed quite a few times about Céline on this blog, right? I especially raved about the “Cabas Zip” tote which I absolutely loved, but now that I’ve seen the “Horizontal Cabas Zip”, I think I might have to do some wish list rearranging. So obsessed! It’s such an elegant and versatile handbag and would make a great wear-to-work bag for all the girls who carry their life in their purse. I’m not sure about the price for this lovely bag, but it’s probably somewhere around $1.500-$2.000. Ouch!

A few weeks ago actress Ashley Tisdale sported a lovely yellow-infused casual look which I absolutely loved and thus had to recreate for you on a more budget-friendly level. The attention seeker in this outfit is, of course, Ashley’s fabulous sunshine yellow Céline tote and luckily I found an awesome alternative at BagInc that will leave you looking just as chic (use promo code “INTHEIRCLOSET” for 10% off!). So, what do you think about my take on Ashley’s look for less? Yay or nay?

Phoebe Philo sure knows the secret sauce to creating “It“-bags. Back when she was at Chloé we had the Paddington craze and years later when she returned to the fashion stage and started to design for Céline she did it all over again and made the “Luggage” tote the most sought-after bag in the whole wide fashion world. And as you can see below Hollywood loves their Mini Luggages, too! That’s why it’s practically impossible to get your hands on this bag. It consequently sells out, one bag at a time.

I have waited almost half a year to write about the Céline Luggage tote simply because I wanted to find the perfect steal for you. Finally, I have found it! And here it is, waiting for you at BagInc. Practically twins, the only noticeable difference to me is the missing logo in the front. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Céline look-a-like! It’s made of authentic leather, is well-crafted and you get all that for a little over $100 (less if you use our exclusive reader discount code above). You better grab this bag asap, it’s probably the next best thing if you can’t afford the original. If you’re looking for the just as coveted black-and-white version, check out BagInc’s “Vanessa” colorblock bag ($109).
