I think it goes without saying that owning an authentic Chanel bag is something each and every girl is dreaming of. And while I’ve never been much of a handbag freak, having a real Chanel bag in my closet would be the ultimate accessory and I would pair it with each of my outfits. It’s so wonderfully perfect and classic and suits almost everything.

Ainifeel Quilted Chain Shoulder Bag

Update (08/08/2017): Spotted these amazing, genuine leather Chanel bag look-alikes by Ainifeel today and had to share them with you immediately! Aren’t they just gorgeous? The clasp on these doesn’t have the interlocking CC logo, but otherwise they’re pretty much identical to the real deal Chanel above. And have I mentioned these purses come in 2 sizes (medium or large) and 11 (!) color options? Consider me obsessed! The price of $115 is admittedly a bit of an investment, but the various customer reviews are throughout very positive and judging from the provided customer’s product photos you’ll get a high-quality designer dupe bag worth its price tag. And if you don’t really feel this particular Chanel design, the seller also has a wide selection of other Chanel bag dupes available, you can check them out hereamazon (including other bag dupesamazon from other luxury designers such as Chloé, Hermès, Valentino, etc).

Diophy CH-3101 PU Leather Quilted Turn Lock Flap Medium Bag

Update (08/08/2017): Not feeling like spending $100 on a designer dupe bag? Well, how about $25 then? These cute quilted flap bags by Diophy scream Chanel, but are surprisingly affordable (sale price!). Granted, the PU leather doesn’t look too durable especially when you compare it to the Ainifeel version, but if you’re someone who takes good care of their bags, these might last you a few years and you could buy all three colors and still have $25 from that $100 bill left. Steal deal alert!

Markese 6999 Quilted Chain Flap Bag

Update (08/08/2017): Also discovered these gorgeous genuine leather Chanel dupes by Markese which come in black, red, cognac and white (not pictured). Again, the price for these look-alikes is a little higher due to these bags being genuine leather (also made in Italy, apparently), so you’re probably better off with this option if you want a long-lasting, high-quality Chanel dupe that you can wear for many years to come.

High Fashion 4803 Quilted Shoulder Bag

Update (06/16/2010): Doesn’t this quilted bag by High Fashion look like the Holy Grail of Chanel knockoffs? OK, some might be turned off by the white stitching, but make sure to check out the other 6 colors including cream (!), nude and pewter which are my favorites and you’ll see why $130 seems like a reasonable price for such a well-made Chanel look-a-like.

Aldo “Bargen” Quilted Handbag

Until you have enough pocket change for the real deal, you might want to settle for a less pricier version first. This quilted flap bag by Aldo certainly meets the criteria. Now don’t expect the same delicate quality of a real Chanel because there is simply no competition. But if you want an affordable alternative this bag is probably your best bet. It does have silver hardware instead of gold and it doesn’t have the cute CC clasp (which the original 2.55 bag however didn’t have as well by the way), but everything else is quite identical.

I’m not sure why they call these boots 50/50, when they’re 100% awesome, but I’ll take them! Stuart Weitzman has been a household name in evening shoes for a very long time. Many people don’t know that the collection features far more than glitz and glamour for the feet. There’s everyday booties, bags and wedges to name a few. In my fashionable opinion, each year the shoes get better and better looking, but the amazing comfort stays the same. So it’s no surprise that many of Hollywood’s leading ladies are consistently seen in Stuart Weitzman shoes on and off the red carpet. These below photos are sure to get you less sad about leaving summer behind.

Chances are you’re already pretty familiar with these double-strapped ribbon tie ballerina flats by Miu Miu because these ballerinas are the “It shoe” of the summer and the latest shoe trend to take over our fashion feeds. As you can see below some of our favorite bloggers and IGers have already been prancing the streets in those cute and quirky ballet flats channeling their inner prima ballerina. I must admit I haven’t been actively following Miu Miu’s collections for a while now, but these shoes made me fall in love with Miuccia Prada’s younger fashion line all over again. I just love how the belted straps toughen up the otherwise overly sweet ballerina design thus giving them an edgy and modern vibe while at the same time still maintaining a classic and feminine look. Also, how cool is the idea of wearing them with mismatched ribbon laces? Pure genius and so refreshingly new and creative! Naturally, we’ve gotten quite a few requests to find budget-friendly alternatives for these much sought after Miu Miu flats because a) these babies cost a whopping $620 now: $670 and b) the popular versions like the nude one for example are basically sold out everywhere anyway. Ergo: challenge accepted!

Also how buttery soft does the blush leather look like here? Amazing for $35.95 (sale price!), no? Other available color options include black and silver metallic.

Chanel espadrilles, round 3. This time we’re showing you the leather version (see the mesh and canvas version here). The top color combination is my personal favorite! Perfect shoes for summer, don’t you agree? I’ve said it before: despite the hype surrounding these shoes I still really like these cute espadrilles, but there’s no way I would spend so much money on a pair of espadrilles even though I can imagine that the leather version is the most durable of all the three variations. But still, $550? Um, no, thank you.

I don’t know how they do it, but Yves Saint Laurent makes some of the most iconic shoes I’ve ever seen. Especially their “Tribute” collection is a hit among celebrities, fashion connoisseurs and us totally obsessed shoe freaks. I’ve loved the Tribute sandals from the first moment I saw them, but never got the chance to go for the real deal or snap up one of the various knockoffs (check!) back then when they were considered the “It” shoe of the year. My favorite Tribute sandal was the purple suede version with gold trimming, but the black patent version is of course more versatile.

I guess they’re more likely supposed to be dupes of Steve Madden’s “Kananda” heels rather than the original YSLs as the brand has several other Steve Madden dupes in their collection, but since Madden’s “Kananda” is a pretty good dupe of the Tribute sandals itself, we’re not going to be petty here. They’re available in red, black and nude faux patent leather and cost $39.99.

Dune “Maui” Lattice T-bar Platform Sandals

Update (11/22/2016): I also discovered another lovely YSL Tribute inspired sandal at Dune. “Maui” is a great alternative if you’re looking for the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute look without wanting a complete knock-off design. Available in black or nude patent for £95 £47.

Office “Nostalgia” Platform Heels

Update (07/06/2016): Spotted yet another almost spot-on Yves Saint Laurent Tribute dupe at Office. Like Steve Madden’s “Kananda” version, this one too, is missing the t-strap on the front, but otherwise the design is so close to the real deal. Available in nude, red and black patent leather as well as gold or rosegold leather and black nubuck for affordable £69.

Fersengold “Paris” T-Strap Platform Sandals

Update (05/01/2016): Just stumbled upon these spot-on YSL Tribute look-alike heels by German shoe brand Fersengold which come in either nude or blue patent leather. I also like the Fendi influencels here with the gold f-letter plate on the platform. They’re not the budget-friendliest steal find at £175, but might be worth the investment if you’re looking for a high-quality YSL dupe.

Steve Madden “Kananda” T-Strap Platform Sandals

Update (01/20/2016): And here we are, almost 6 years after the last find, here we have yet another YSL Tribute look-alike by Steve Madden (minus the t-strap). And I think this one’s the best one yet! “Kananda” is available in various colors and uppers for $60.99 (sale price!).

rsvp “Evelyn” T-Strap Sandals

Update (05/02/2011): Here’s another great and almost identical YSL Tribute look-a-like coming from rsvp. The only noticeable difference is the lower heel. These come in black, fuchsia, red, nude, gold and silver patent. Apart from the black patent version all the other colors have been marked down to a super affordable $55.

Steve Madden “DAARLING” T-Strap Sandals

Update (03/28/2010): Check out Steve Madden‘s second take on the Tribute sandal. Available in black, nude & natural patent, denim and leopard.

I still prefer the first one, but this heel has some major advantages. It is a) not sold out, b) cheaper and c) way easier to walk in because of the lower heel (the platform helps, too).

Steve Madden T-Bar Platform Sandals

Update (12/04/2009): Woohoo! You lucky gals. ASOS is now selling the Steve Madden sandals at the amazing price of £32 at their online outlet store. That is 60% OFF the original retail price! I bought these babies full price six months ago there and they look absolutely fantastic in person. So worth the price.

YSL lovers, today’s your lucky day! These Steve Madden platform sandals have completely sold out everywhere else, but ASOS has still a few of these fabtastic heels in limited sizes available. Be quick to order because this is the final sale and probably also your last chance for a great YSL Tribute knockoff of such great quality. I love mine so much! They are absolutely amazing looking for knockoffs and while £80 were certainly not cheap, I haven’t put a second thought whether or not to buy them and ordered straight away after they added my size. My tip: if your feet are slightly wider than average I suggest you go at least half a size up so your toes won’t get squished.

Guess Trivan T-Strap Platform Sandals

There have been countless YSL Tribute sandal knockoffs, but only a handful of them were actually decent looking. These YSL look-a-likes by Guess are one of the best knockoffs which are still being sold. So if you haven’t got the chance to grab a knockoff back then, you can now catch up on this!

Gianni Bini Uptown Platform Sandals

If you’re looking for something more budget-friendly, you’ll probably be happy with these Gianni Bini platforms. They are currently on sale for half the price being marked down from $98 to $49.99 and come in black or tan (my favorite!). But hurry, sizes are limited.
