LuLu*s Beautiful Mesh Lace Dress

Luckily, there’s no need to spend a little fortune because LuLu*s have an awesomely similar lace sheer dress that will cost you 75% less than the original For Love & Lemons Antigua Dress. Same amount of sexy, but for much cheaper! You’re welcome. But you better be fast as I’m sure this dress is going to sell quickly.

Whatever you want to call this piece of clothing – a blanket, a jacket, a cape or a poncho, there’s no denying that Burberry Prorsum‘s check wool and cashmere cape from the Fall 2014 show has been declared the latest must-have item for fall and winter. The popularity of this new cape trend is mostly owed to stylish celebs and It girls like Olivia Palermo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Sarah Jessica Parker who have all been spotted being cosily wrapped in their monogrammed Burberry blanket capes out and about to fight off the chilly weather. If you love the blanket cape trend, but can’t casually drop $1,395 (not that you could anyway since the Burberry cape is already sold out everywhere), keep on reading to find a few budget-frienldy alternatives.

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!

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.

Alloy Snake Envelope Clutch

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!
