Wasn’t there a moment in every little girl’s life where she has dreamed of being a ballerina? And with ballet flats as lovely looking as these by Chloé, isn’t there still a place in every woman’s heart for that little girl’s dream? Too bad the reality of that $485 price tag keeps most of us away from making that dream come true.

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.

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.

The moment I first laid eyes onto these fancy satin bow slide sandals by Puma which came out as part of the new Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection earlier this month, I knew Rihanna would have another hit on her hands for the fashion-forward, sportswear-loving ladies (…and men since these are also available in men’s sizing). The new styles are supposedly inspired by the luxurious Parisian days of the famously known decadent Queen of France, Marie-Antoinette, the bow slides are a glammed up version of the classic soccer slide with a super cute satin bow adorning the slide strap which come in either a beautiful pastel pink or edgy olive green. The bow slides retail for $90 which is obviously far from being a designer shoe price, but a) these sandals are so in demand right now that they’re almost sold out everywhere and b) not everbody wants to spend almost $100 on a pair of pool slide sandals, so we took a look around to see whether we could find some lower priced alternatives. Spoiler alert: we did!

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!

When it comes to me obsessing over shoes it usually happens with high heels only. However, if it’s a shoe by Valentino I most likely will love it no matter whether it’s a sky-high stiletto or a flat gladiator sandal like this one. And I absolutely adore these studded summer sandals! Who wouldn’t anyway? They’re utterly chic without compromising on the comfort factor and the gold rockstuds really set these shoes off. I love how LeAnn Rimes wears her Valentinos with shorts and breezy tops. Too bad I don’t have her shoe shopping budget because at $975 these would have been quite the investment in terms of summer footwear.

bebe “Petra” Studded Flat Sandals

I was so happy to have stumbled upon these amazingly similar bebe gladiator sandals. They do miss one horizontal strap, but otherwise they’re a fabulous Valentino look-a-like. And did I mention they’re currently on sale for $39.99 (were $59.99)? What a great deal, right? But hurry up, some sizes are already out of stock as these summer sandals are figuratively flying off the shelves.
