I wouldn’t resist a bright blue heel even if I could (which I couldn’t, by the way, because I’m too much of a fangirl for anything cobalt blue). And especially not if this bright blue heel is one by Jimmy Choo. So naturally, I was instantly obsessed with Choo’s “Gladys” heel – a beautiful suede lace-up high heel sandal in a striking electric blue hue! The only thing I couldn’t get myself to like though? Yup, you guessed it – the price of $995!

Madden Girl “Raceyyy” Lace-Up Sandals

My personal Jimmy Choo Gladys dupe favorite would have to be these lace-up heels by Madden Girl. The blue is almost as vibrant as on the real deal and the (sale) price of $39.79 ain’t too bad either! Available in blue, black and blush faux suede upper.

Real vs. Steal – Céline Trio Bag

by Irina on November 10, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on November 10, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

What is it about Céline handbags that makes me want to hand out my credit card, close my eyes and say: “But please, be gentle!“? I don’t know whether it’s the hype surrounding the French fashion house or the countless style bloggers toting around Céline beauties on their arm, but for some reason Céline bags have that enviable “je ne sais quoi“-factor that draws me to them. Not that I am anywhere in the position to actually buy a Céline bag right now. But not now doesn’t mean never, right? But until then, I’ll have to settle for a budget-friendly Céline Trio alternative, I guess.

And the first one’s a total winner, right? These cute faux leather bags by Apt. 9 are a close match to the pricey Céline designer original yet they are currently on sale for a very wallet-friendly $19.99! Steal deal alert, woot woot! At this price, I’d probably get one in every color.

MICHAEL Michael Kors “Bedford Gusset” Crossbody Bag

If you’re looking for a real leather option and are are ready to invest considerably more, then this triple zipper crossbody by MICHAEL Michael Kors is a great Céline Trio alternative. $179 seems like a lot for such a small bag, but it’s still better than $1.500, right? Sadly, the best colors are already sold out including my personal favorite, a beautiful cobalt blue huels! Boohoo! Waiting for a restock on this!

Annabel Ingall “Jojo” Crossbody Bag

If you’re really dedicated to the look of Céline’s Trio bag but simply cannot spend as much, here’s another fabulous but also quite pricey designer bag alternative by Annabel Ingall which retails for $320. Size, color and shape of the bag are almost identical to the Trio, but the “Jojo” bag has an extra crossover strap.

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.

You can love or hate Kim Kardashian all you want, but there’s no denying that some of her outfits are absolutely superb! I’m not quite sure if this is mainly due to Kim having a really good stylist, but whatever it is, it works, so please don’t stop, Kimmy! Case in point: Kim’s body-con getup at Teyana Taylor’s VII Listening Party which consisted of a creamy white high-waist pencil skirt, a matching tight turtleneck sweater, taupe heels, soft waves and understated makeup. Doesn’t she look just perfect here? The sex appeal of this outfit lies within the curvaceous silhouette while the high-necked top and midi-length skirt bring some much needed elegance and class to Kim’s look. The minute I spotted this gorgeous outfit of Kim, I knew I would have to do a look 4 less of it. Soooo, what do you think? Is my budget-friendly take on Kim’s look on point or not so much?
