The eco-conscious Stella McCartney has designed yet another great Chamois Falabella bag made from 100% Polyester, and still exceptionally fabulous. You can carry this roomy shoulder bag to work along with your laptop bag and it will still look great when you meet up with friends or a hot date afterwards. It will even transition nicely into the weekend. And who doesn’t love the hardware detail? That little bit of edge gives off the perfect amount of playfulness on an otherwise classic shape. The original does have a pretty high price tag considering the materials used, but the construction is flawless. Loving the look but can’t afford the real thing quite yet? We’ve got a pretty sweet tentative option below.

Urban Expressions “City Lights” Chain-Trimmed Bag

Urban Expressions is another fantastic vegan handbag brand that carries lots of well-priced styles that look just like high-end designer originals. I would wear this particular bag with a modern silhouette to enhance its urban feel, keeping my outfit tailored and accessories minimal. Some faux-leather leggings and a tunic or some wide-leg jeans and a fitted knit top would work perfectly; especially since the detailed chain embellishment will draw in all the attention you need! Excited yet? Besides black, you can also get it in other colors, too.

When it comes to me obsessing over shoes it usually happens with high heels only. However, if it’s a shoe by Valentino I most likely will love it no matter whether it’s a sky-high stiletto or a flat gladiator sandal like this one. And I absolutely adore these studded summer sandals! Who wouldn’t anyway? They’re utterly chic without compromising on the comfort factor and the gold rockstuds really set these shoes off. I love how LeAnn Rimes wears her Valentinos with shorts and breezy tops. Too bad I don’t have her shoe shopping budget because at $945 these would have been quite the investment in terms of summer footwear.

I was so happy to have stumbled upon these amazingly similar bebe gladiator sandals. They do miss one horizontal strap, but otherwise they’re a fabulous Valentino look-a-like. And did I mention they’re currently on sale for $39.99 (were $59.99)? What a great deal, right? But hurry up, some sizes are already out of stock as these summer sandals are figuratively flying off the shelves.

This fantastic Valentino Bow d’Orsay Pump may look a little familiar to you… that’s because we featured the red version here on ITC back in July 2009. But nude heels are so hot right now that we felt compelled to revisit this pair. They’re a totally fresh take on nude – sculptural and feminine at the same time.

I am usually not too fond of Louis Vuitton bags. I especially dislike their monogrammed range because I just don’t see the appeal of having a brand’s logos plastered all over my bag looking like a tacky advertisement. However, Sofia Coppola designed a bag for Louis Vuitton that got me obsessed! The SC bag is pure and simple elegance; I absolutely adore the minimalistic design and the no-fuss attitude it exudes. It’s such a beautiful bag in such a beautiful color! But, oh boy, is this bag expensive! $4.650? Like seriously, Louis Vuitton?

A.L.C. Small Lucas Duffel Bag

UPDATE (05/09/2015): If you’re looking for a really high-quality Louis Vuitton SC alternative then A.L.C.‘s “Lucas” duffel satchel might be a good fit. The design is very similar to LV’s SC bag and I bet the craftmanship is superb, too, but you’d have to spend $895 on this beauty. Which, however, is still only about 1/5 of the LV SC bag’s price, so it’s a great deal overall.

The color is a bit lighter and brighter, but otherwise it’s practically identical. Other available color options include brown and black.

‘Tis the season to get your spike on! From spiked heels to spiked drinks – I am so down! Which is why this Pigalle “Loubie” should totally be in my stocking. But at over $1.000 and the fact that it’s sold out – ol’ St. Nick won’t be dropping these babies off anytime soon! No worries though, all my naughty girls; we found a nice lil’ knockoff below.

See… naughty girls need love, too. And these pretty pumps as well! “Bahia” by STUDIO TMLS is not as spiked or as high as the Pigalle, but for about roughly 10% of the original cost, I think we can deal with these few exceptions. But not spiking my drink with enough of the good stuff is a whole other story. ūüėČ
