Real vs. Steal – Céline Trio Bag

by Irina on February 16, 2015

UPDATE: This post has been updated on February 16, 2015. Scroll down to see the new adds.

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.

Apt.9 Triple Zipper Crossbody Bag

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 $20.40! 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. $160 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.

I know you’re going to love this! Remember the gorgeous blue Cinderella-like Manolos Carrie wore at the end of the Sex and the City Movie? Yeah, I couldn’t get them out of my head either. The classic design and the bold blue hue make them great contenders for your favorite formal footwear.

Sex and the City Loves Manolo Blahnik

In the movie Carrie said they cost $525, but due to the vast demand retailers almost doubled the price to an outrageous $965 making them a fictional purchase for most of us shoe addicts who are living on a budget. What a bummer!

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker “Maddalena” Pointy Toe Satin Pumps

UPDATE (01/21/2015): So basically Sarah Jessica Parker decided to dupe Manolo Blahnik’s highly popular “Something Blue” pump for her own shoe line SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. The very same shoe which she has worn in the above mentioned Sex and the City movie. And she put a price tag of $545 on it, too. I don’t think her “good friend” Manolo will be too pleased finding out about this.

RSVP “Sincere” Satin Pumps

UPDATE (06/14/2012): Found yet another pair of Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes, again by RSVP. Available in 4 different colors: black, bronze, cobalt blue and silver satin. If you’re looking a higher heel, check out “Simonecj” by RSVP which isn’t quite as spot-on as “Sincere” but has a disctinctly higher heel.

RSVP “Zaza” Blue Satin Pumps

UPDATE (09/23/2009): Stumbled upon these awesome Manolo Blahnik knockoffs by RSVP today.

Look what I found! If you missed out on the Martinez Valero heels or just couldn’t justify the $160 price tag, these satin pumps by RSVP look almost identical, but are $60 cheaper. Available in blue, black, ivory and white. Grab these knockoffs while you can, I’m sure they are going to sell out super fast. RSVP also has a flat heeled version of the Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes called “Cassiecj” ($99) which looks exactly like the Martinez Valero version except with a low heel.

Shiekh Mitzy Hachi-200 Satin Pumps

UPDATE (09/23/2009): And here’s another alternative to the Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin Pumps.

I know these satin pumps by Shiekh aren’t exactly knockoffs, but the blue satin and the vamp embellishment reminded me of the Manolo Blahniks above and since these here resemble the Sedaraby pumps by Blahnik famously worn by Carrie Bradshaw a lot, I thought I just put them here as a budget-friendly alternative for under $50. Also available in pink and black satin!

Martinez Valero “Zenith” Blue Satin Pumps

Do not despair however! Because Martinez Valero has finally heard our prayers! He came up with an almost identical pair of his own blue satin pumps which also have the vamp embellishment, but cost only about 1/10 of the original Manolos. So if you are in need of beautiful yet affordable bridal shoes, these here might be your best bet. But hurry, once the masses get wind of these Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes, I guarantee you, they will be gone in a minute!

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.

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.
