Alright, let’s talk backpacks. They’ve been kinda huge last year. And probably will be huge again this year, too. While admittedly this trend has totally gone past me because I’m just more of a handbag person and because backpacks generally make me feel like I’m 10 and in school again, if I had to choose a backpack, I’d totally rock this chain-trimmed beauty by Stella McCartney which is basically her iconic “Falabella” as a rucksack edition. Just as pretty and just as expensive. Le sigh!

Forever 21 Faux Leather Chained Backpack

Update (08/03/2015): Since all the previously posted Falabella backpack alternatives seem to have sold out, I am happy to report that we were able to find two more Falabella backpack steals. Here we have an amazing, almost spot-on Stella McCartney dupe by Forever 21 which is available in either black, cream or burgundy faux leather for a very budget-friendly $32.90. If you’re a fan, better be fast, I’m sure these babies will be sold out soon as well.

Update (08/03/2015): And here’s another lovely Falabella backpack alternative by Inzi which has a strong Chanel vibe to it due to its quilted texture. It’s not exactly budget-friendly at $98.95, but so fab, right?

Nasty Gal “Aliandra” Chain Backpack

Well, well. Hats off to Nasty Gal who did a pretty good job at bringing us the “Falabella” on a budget. Their “Aliandra” backpack is similarly pretty, but retails for a wallet-friendly $60 instead. Grab yours now and be the coolest kid on the fashion schoolyard! Nobody has to know it was only $60. A tan version named “Dillon” is available herels.

Now if this back-bow d’Orsay pump by everyone’s favorite French shoe designer, Monsieur Christian Louboutin, isn’t absolute shoe perfection, I don’t know what is! I mean, just look at it! Perfectly-shaped arch, a nice, subtle platform with a luscious red sole, an almost 5″ stiletto heel and the loveliest tied bow on the back. In a word, the perfect symbiosis of girly and grown-up.

Kate Spade New York “Izzie” Back-Bow d’Orsay Pumps

Update (05/12/2016): Kate Spade New York came out with a second CL Dos Noeud inspired shoe style named “Izzie”. Available in various colors with an either leather or satin upper, these beauties will cost you a not so steal-worthy $328, but that’s still better than $1.045, right?

Update (01/29/2016): Stumbled upon these adorable bow back heels by Nina and they instantly reminded me of the Louboutins above. Available in various beautiful colors and uppers.

Kate Spade “Chrissie” Back-Bow Dress Sandals

And while I’d love to invest in the Louboutins above, I have to face reality and accept the fact that they’re way out of my price league. That’s why I made it my mission to find a similar shoe for less money. Et voilà, Kate Spade delivered! At $373.50 (sale price!), these cute bow heels are from being a “steal”, but they are about half the price of the Loubis while looking suspiciously similar to the CL Dos Noeud pumps. FYI: I wouldn’t mind having both versions in my closet. 😉 Available in deep red satin or black suede.

Time for some Chloé goodness again. The French fashion house really is on a roll with their newest line of “It” bags everyone is lusting after. We’ve already covered the “Drew” and “Faye” and now it’s time to talk about the “Hudson” which is actually a whole set of different Chloé bags coming in different shapes and sizes, all of them exuding that iconic Chloé boho-vibe with their tassels and fringes. And yes, sure, this is undeniably a gorgeous bag, but can you imagine spending more than $2.000 for this sweet little mini bag?

Lush Leather Saddle Tassel Crossbody Bag

Update (05/11/2016): Stumbled upon the first genuine leather Chloé Hudson dupe today! By Lush and available in either black or brown for $139.99.

Sole Society “Exie” Mini Fringe Shoulder Bag

Luckily, I stumbled upon this cute Chloé alternative by Sole Society which will give you the coveted Chloé boho look for a whole lot less. Sole Society’s version is a little larger than the real deal Chloé, but I actually prefer that because I can’t see my wallet, phone, keys and lipstick fitting comfortably in the Hudson mini bag above. “Exie” is available in cognac brown or black faux leather (with genuine suede tassels) for $59.95.

BagInc “Renee” Faux Leather Fringe Bag

Deal: Use promo code “SPRINGBAG” to get 15% off your entire order!

BagInc has also a good looking, spot-on Chloé Hudson faux leather dupe available in various beautiful colors for the budget-friendly price of $69. You can even save some more (15%!) by using the promo code above. FYI: A few weeks ago I received an email from a reader who was having issues with her BagInc order (long order processing and unsatisfactory customer service), so please proceed with caution, prepare yourself for a possibly longer shipping process (products are being shipped from Hong Kong) and if nothing helps, there’s always the possibility to file a dispute with PayPal or your credit card company. I own a couple of (genuine leather) BagInc bags and was always very pleased with both the shipping duration as well as the product quality, but that’s been quite a while ago now, so I can’t fully vouch for the company at this point and thus wanted you to be aware of this.

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.

Over the years I have fallen in love with so many Louboutins that I always thought: “Well, now he has outdone himself! I couldn’t love a shoe more!” – But then this shoe came along. The “Impera” – a truly imperial lasercut lace-up stiletto pump. So how divine could a shoe be? And even though it’s usually very hard for me to love a white heel, this one I absolutely ADORE! In both white and black leather. Just look how gorgeous these shoes look on the celebs! I’m especially in love with how Alessandra Ambrosio has worn her Loubies. Too bad they are a) sold out and b) totally out of my budget.
