Real vs. Steal – Céline Trio Bag

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.

Slip-on sneakers are a huge, huge trend right now and I have a feeling Givenchy is partly to hold responsible. I’m totally loving their iconic rose print which they put on pretty much every item at the moment and I think the floral print gives these sneakers a nice, feminine touch. But as much as I love these floral slip-ons, would I be willing to spend $570 on them? Probably not.

One of the must-haves for any great wardrobe is the day to night clutch. A neutral color is best, and it should be the right size to carry your essentials either to lunch or dinner out. This sleek and beautiful design by Givenchy definitely meets the requirements and more. Not only is it very elegant, but also the material and excellent construction means it can last a lifetime in your closet. However, if you are one to switch up your accessories frequently, perhaps try looking for a version that doesn’t require such a large investment.

While it’s not identical to the high-end designer version above, this design by Alloy is pretty close in overall scale and functionality. It will serve its purpose while still being stylish and current. If you ever wanted to bring more attention to a dress or a pair of shoes, this bag is perfect for drawing interest to where you want it, keeping your outfit visually balanced. Think of how great a printed maxi dress would look paired with fun wedges and this clutch!

Real vs. Steal – Céline Cabas Zip Tote

by Irina on February 11, 2015

Update: This post has been updated on February 11, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

Well, hello beautiful! — Sorry, I can’t help but be absolutely smitten by the beauty that is the Cabas Zip Tote by Céline. Sure the Luggage tote may have more buzz factor, but it’s the simplified elegance of the Cabas that secretly stole my heart. And not just mine! Supermodel Miranda Kerr has been practically glued to her ponyhair version during the last few months. Can’t blame her, right? It’s such a fabulous bag that’ll fit a good amount of everyday essentials. The price is astonishingly moderate at “only” $1.200 for a high-end designer bag, but unfortunately it’s almost impossible to get your hands on this particular bag. Boohoo!
