Real vs. Steal – Céline Mini Luggage Tote

Phoebe Philo sure knows the secret sauce to creating “It“-bags. Back when she was at Chloé we had the Paddington craze and years later when she returned to the fashion stage and started to design for Céline she did it all over again and made the “Luggage” tote the most sought-after bag in the whole wide fashion world. And as you can see below Hollywood loves their Mini Luggages, too! That’s why it’s practically impossible to get your hands on this bag. It consequently sells out, one bag at a time.

BagInc “Lana” Leather Shoulder Bag

Deal: Use promo code SPRINGBAG for 15% off your order at BagInc!

I have waited almost half a year to write about the Céline Luggage tote simply because I wanted to find the perfect steal for you. Finally, I have found it! And here it is, waiting for you at BagInc. Practically twins, the only noticeable difference to me is the missing logo in the front. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Céline look-a-like! It’s made of authentic leather, is well-crafted and you get all that for a little over $100 (less if you use our exclusive reader discount code above). You better grab this bag asap, it’s probably the next best thing if you can’t afford the original. If you’re looking for the just as coveted black-and-white version, check out BagInc’s “Vanessa” colorblock bag ($109).

So this ring doesn’t need an introduction I think. The highly-coveted Arty ring by Yves Saint Laurent. If you follow the fashion blogosphere I’m pretty sure you’ve come across it already. It’s either on almost every fashion blogger’s fingers or at least lingers on their wish list. And while $290 is an almost OK price for such a stunning piece of jewelry, not everyone can or wants to spend that much money on costume jewelry.

P.S.: Also available in various colors at Saksls & Net-A-Porter (International)icon.

(P.P.S.: Did I mention I desperately want this ring in the lustworthy indigo version? I’m planning to get it for my birthday… yup, I’m one of those lemming fashion bloggers.) Purchased the indigo blue version in the recent NET-A-PORTER semi-annual sale for 60% off and am absolutely in love with it! No buyer’s remorse!
