Real vs. Steal – Chanel Classic Flap Bag

by Irina on August 8, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on August 8, 2017. Scroll down to see the new adds.

I think it goes without saying that owning an authentic Chanel bag is something each and every girl is dreaming of. And while I’ve never been much of a handbag freak, having a real Chanel bag in my closet would be the ultimate accessory and I would pair it with each of my outfits. It’s so wonderfully perfect and classic and suits almost everything.

Ainifeel Quilted Chain Shoulder Bag

Update (08/08/2017): Spotted these amazing, genuine leather Chanel bag look-alikes by Ainifeel today and had to share them with you immediately! Aren’t they just gorgeous? The clasp on these doesn’t have the interlocking CC logo, but otherwise they’re pretty much identical to the real deal Chanel above. And have I mentioned these purses come in 2 sizes (medium or large) and 11 (!) color options? Consider me obsessed! The price of $115 is admittedly a bit of an investment, but the various customer reviews are throughout very positive and judging from the provided customer’s product photos you’ll get a high-quality designer dupe bag worth its price tag. And if you don’t really feel this particular Chanel design, the seller also has a wide selection of other Chanel bag dupes available, you can check them out here (including other bag dupes from other luxury designers such as Chloé, Hermès, Valentino, etc).

Diophy CH-3101 PU Leather Quilted Turn Lock Flap Medium Bag

Update (08/08/2017): Not feeling like spending $100 on a designer dupe bag? Well, how about $25 then? These cute quilted flap bags by Diophy scream Chanel, but are surprisingly affordable (sale price!). Granted, the PU leather doesn’t look too durable especially when you compare it to the Ainifeel version above, but if you’re someone who takes good care of their bags, these might last you a few years and you could buy all three colors and still have $25 from that $100 bill left. Steal deal alert!

Markese 6999 Quilted Chain Flap Bag

Update (08/08/2017): Also discovered these gorgeous genuine leather Chanel dupes by Markese which come in black, red, cognac and white (not pictured). Again, the price for these look-alikes is a little higher due to these bags being genuine leather (also made in Italy, apparently), so you’re probably better off with this option if you want a long-lasting, high-quality Chanel dupe that you can wear for many years to come.

High Fashion 4803 Quilted Shoulder Bag

Update (06/16/2010): Doesn’t this quilted bag by High Fashion look like the Holy Grail of Chanel knockoffs? OK, some might be turned off by the white stitching, but make sure to check out the other 6 colors including cream (!), nude and pewter which are my favorites and you’ll see why $130 seems like a reasonable price for such a well-made Chanel look-a-like.

Wet Seal Quilted Cross Body Clutch

Update (10/05/2009): Found a new and super amazing Chanel handbag knockoff for under $20 at Wet Seal. This budget-friendly Chanel alternative looks amazing if you consider the low price and it comes in either black or silver.

Aldo “Bargen” Quilted Handbag

Until you have enough pocket change for the real deal, you might want to settle for a less pricier version first. This quilted flap bag by Aldo certainly meets the criteria. Now don’t expect the same delicate quality of a real Chanel because there is simply no competition. But if you want an affordable alternative this bag is probably your best bet. It does have silver hardware instead of gold and it doesn’t have the cute CC clasp (which the original 2.55 bag however didn’t have as well by the way), but everything else is quite identical.

Real vs. Steal – Chanel Quilted Boy Bag

by Irina on August 6, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on August 6, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

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.

Leave it to Chanel to make us crave those #grannyshoes we all deemed ugly when we were teenagers. And if it weren’t for Chanel and the iconic CC-logo on the side of the heel, I doubt these would have been quite as popular as they are right now, but even though I know the greater part of the allure of these shoes can be traced back to just being by Chanel, I somehow still understand why so many bloggers and fashion insiders are so in love with these. The two-tone cap-toe, the mid-height block heel, the convenient slingback; it’s the perfect example of 50s retro chic and an absolute timeless classic. By pairing these shoes with modern pieces such as ripped skinny jeans or a cool biker jacket, you will keep yourself from looking like an actual granny in these. And while I don’t know what the exact retail price is for these, we’re talking about Chanel here after all, so I think it’s safe to say that they’re expensive. And apparently very hard to get ahold of these days.

And one last Chanel alternative for all my lovely UK readers. Now these beige/black suede slingbacks from Office might not be an identical dupe, but they’re still close enough to serve as a great Chanel look for less, wouldn’t you agree? Plus, there’s also a closed back version named “Madison” available here which costs £38 (sale price!) as well.

And we’re back to Chanel. Back to the now uber-famous and highly popular Chanel espadrilles, to be exact. We have already written about the black mesh pair and this time we’re showing you the just as lovely canvas version. And while I do think that they are really beautiful and would make a great pair of summer shoes, there’s absolutely no way I’d pay more than $500 for a pair of espadrilles! Not gonna happen, not even if they’re Chanel.
