Soooooo, Chanel espadrilles, anyone? Let me tell you: last year they were EVERYWHERE! I feel like I’ve seen them on pretty much every famous style blogger’s feet. Chanel released a couple different variations, one of which are these black cap-toe mesh espadrille flats. I must admit I have grown quite fondly of this particular version, but I don’t see myself spending $450 on a pair of espadrille shoes anytime soon.

Valentine’s Day is approaching and I’m still not a big fan. I do like to dress up for special occasions however, that’s why I decided to let my imagination run wild to create an imaginary V-Day outfit. This year I wanted the look to be bold, so I went with a red and black color theme. The floral-embroidered top is obviously the eyecatcher in this look and adds some serious drama while the rest of the outfit is kept classic yet sexy yet feminine. Do you like it? And what are your outfit ideas for Valentine’s Day?

Dolce Gabbana Spring 2015 x Nasty Gal

by Irina on February 4, 2016

Dolce Gabbana‘s Spring 2015 Collection has been by far one of my absolute favorites in the last five to ten years. Now I’ve always been a huge fan of Italian design duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, but S/S 2015 was especially outstandingly beautiful! All of the looks were so extravagant, so feminine, so sensual, so bold! Those floral embroideries combined with delicate lace and luxurious silks? Pure heaven! But that beauty, of course, came with a price. A skirtls from that collection for example would sell for an astronomical price of $12.500, a mini dressls went for roughly $10.000. With prices that high, there wasn’t even the slightest thought of purchasing possible.

Nasty Gal does Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2015

Then a few days ago I happened to stumble upon a few pieces on Nasty Gal that somehow looked all too familiar. And after a few seconds it suddenly hit me: Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015, of course! I mean, just look at the model’s hair and makeup! Totally obvious! The designs themselves aren’t spot-on dupes, but close enough to pretend you’re a sultry Italian duchess. Some of the pieces have already sold out of many sizes, so lightning-fast shopping is advised.

Back in May, we received a reader email from Madison who requested us to find a dupe for Chloé‘s “Faye” bag. At that time however, there were no “Faye” dupes available anywhere (at least none that we could find anyway), so I suggested to Madison to wait a couple more months until the fast fashion market would catch onto this bag trend. Fortunately, the “Faye” went viral in the fashion blogosphere in the meantime and many of the top notch style bloggers have been spotted carrying a “Faye” under their arm. This bag with its distinct chained O-ring on the front is available in an array of different colors and uppers and color combinations, but the most popular ones seem to be the black and the cognac brown version as shown below. And despite the hefty price tag of $1.950, many of the “Faye” bags seem to be on backorder at most online retailers. Luckily, we were able to find a few Chloé Faye dupes by now, so Madison (and you) don’t have to wait an eternity and spend a fortune on top to be able to tote this trendy bag style around.

BagInc “Jamie” Medium Suede And Leather Shoulder Bag

Update (01/22/2016): Found this gorgeous Chloé Faye look-alike made of genuine leather at BagInc today. They’re not cheap at $135, but since I own a few of BagInc’s real leather bags I’m pretty sure these here are worth their money as well. Available in 4 colors: black, brown, violet and grey. Other sizes of this bag are available here. Make sure to use our exclusive promo code “INTHEIRCLOSET” to get 10% off your purchase (free shipping on orders $99+)!

Forever 21 Loop Handle Faux Leather Crossbody

First up is this cute “Faye” look-alike I discovered a few days ago at Forever 21. It’s not an identical dupe, but the inspiration is clearly visible here I think. At $27.90, it’s an affordable way to get your Chloé fashion fix. And did I mention that F21 is currently having a promotion where you get 20% off your order? Score!

Jessica Buurman “Shero” Flap Shoulder Bag

Deal: Free worldwide shipping on all orders! Sign up to the Jessica Buurman newsletter and get a 10% off coupon!

If you really, really want a spot-on dupe however, you might want to take a look at these faux leather bags available at Jessica Buurman. You probably can’t get any closer to the real deal than this at the moment! FYI: Jessica Buurman is an online shop located in China, so please buy with caution as we have received a few emails/comments from disappointed JB customers in the last couple of months regarding the quality of the received items. Even though most customers seem to be happy with their purchases (check out Instagram for that!), I strongly recommend to buy through PayPal, so you have buyer protection in case something goes wrong with the purchase.

H&M Shoulder Bag

At H&M, I’ve discovered this Chloé Faye inspired bag for $49.99. If you don’t need an exact dupe and are just generally liking the style and concept of the Faye bag, I think this bag would be a good alternative.

Aldo “Cellatica” Crossbody Bag

And last but not least, here’s another Chloé Faye look for less alternative of the “inspired by” kind which I have come across on the Aldo website recently. It’s certainly not a dupe, but still has various elements of the Faye bag, so I wanted to make sure to include this budget-friendly option as well.

I admit I wasn’t too familiar with Barcelona-based bag brand M2Malletier before writing this post, but when I read up the brand’s history, it instantly reminded me of Mansur Gavriel because both brands were founded in 2012 by a female design duo (in this case Melissa Losada and Marcela Velez) and both brands are best known for their minimalistic designs. Recognizing an M2Malletier bag shouldn’t be too hard as they all have that signature metal bar top handle the brand is so famous for. M2Malletier key design elements include rectangular shapes and clean lines which supposedly is due to the dominant influence of architecture, the most important source of inspiration for the designer duo. And even though M2Malletier bags aren’t quite as hyped as Mansur Gavriel’s, it’s still quite hard to get your hands on the best-selling designs such as this handmade “Fleur Du Mal” shoulder bag. The price of $1.560 isn’t really helping either, of course.

Forever 21 Faux Leather Crossbody

I didn’t really expect Forever 21 to come out with an M2Malletier dupe anytime soon as I assumed the metal bar top handle detail would be way too costly to produce to fit into the brand’s narrow price range. Apparently, I was wrong. Because just look at this budget-friendly beauty of a bag! A spot-on “Fleur Du Mal” dupe for under $25! A quick reminder: the real deal comes in at $1.560. Now that’s what I call a steal deal!
