We have received quite a few reader requests for various Chloé bags lately. And yes, we agree, if there’s ONE thing Chloé is exceptionally good at, it’s their bag range. The French fashion house always manages to incorporate that certain je ne sais quoi-factor that makes every one of their bag styles so desirable. My current personal favorite is the “Drew”, a cute little rounded crossbody bag on a metallic chain. Sadly, Drew’s price tag isn’t quite as cute.

Unita “Wony” Genuine Leather Chain Bag

Update (08/02/2015): If there’d be something like a “Best Bag Dupe“-Award, can we please all agree this one would probably go out to these gorgeous Chloé Drew dupes by Unita?! I am beyond obsessed with the pastel mint and lavender color and love that these are sturdy-looking high quality bags made of genuine cowhide leather. According to the product description, the bags are being manufactured with utmost care in South Korea. I know these babies ain’t cheap with a price tag of over $100, but if one can trust the pictures, the price is definitely worth the investment. The bag comes in 5 colors: black, tan, mint, lavender and taupe grey (what’s your personal fave?).

Forever 21 Faux Leather Lock Crossbody Bag

Of course Forever 21 couldn’t pass up on creating a “Drew”-inspired bag of their own. F21’s “Drew” is not as much of a 1:1 dupe like BagInc’s version, but it is still veeeery similar to the Chloé original. $22.90 and available in either black, tan or cream faux leather.

Lush Parisian Pin Crossbody Chain Leather Bag

If you’re on the lookout for a high-quality Chloé Drew dupe made of genuine leather, then the Parisian Pin Crossbody Chain Bag by Lush Bags is probably best suited for you. The design is spot-on, but you’d have to spend $129.99 on this “steal”. The bigger leather-strap Chloé Drew dupe version is also available by the way (see hereamazon).

And lastly, if you just like the visual concept of Chloé’s Drew and are not after a perfect look-alike, then Aldo‘s “Friedline” might be the best fit. The Chloé inspiration is clearly visible, but overall the bag still holds its own.

If you haven’t heard of Mansur Gavriel by now, I suggest you stop whatever you’re doing and go read up on the NYC-based female designer duo now because fashion insiders all over the world have gone absolutely cuckoo over their minimalistic luxe leather bags! Mansur Gavriel’s bucket bag has been especially popular within the fashion world and is constantly sold out due to the high demand and despite the not so budget-friendly price tag of $495 (now: $595) for the “mini” version and $625 (now: $695) for the “large” one. I think the minimalistic design contrasted against the popping interior lining is one of the main reasons why this bag has been so extremely successful. If you can’t afford the beauty of a real Mansur Gavriel bag or just can’t stand being wait-listed, read on to find many great alternatives less than $100.

I am a huge fan of Jennifer Aniston‘s style. She delicately walks the edges of trends while always maintaining a classic style that I’m pretty sure we’ll never look back on, thinking “God, WHAT was she wearing?” Last summer Jen started rocking a pair of Stuart Weitzman espadrilles that had me drooling. Clearly I wasn’t the only fan though; the Alex Espadrille Wedges flew off the shelves and were forever more impossible to find. They’re back now and available on several e-retailer sites and I would probably kill to own a pair. Seriously, I recommend you not being around me right now. Sadly these are just out of my price range.

Olivia Palermo always looks fabulous and this look is no exception. I just love the way she paired two bold jewel tones (emerald and citrine) and made them look fantastic together. If I had to guess, I’d say the secret is the neutral basics she wore with them. The soft charcoal grey sweater softens the overall look and her handbag and accessories all compliment her skin and hair color. And then instead of the usual jewelry (like earrings or a necklace) she went for the unexpected brooches worn on her blazer’s collar. Vintage pieces like these are actually not very hard to find these days, with flea markets and antiques turning up many fun sparklers for just a few dollars. Of course, you can always get creative and repurpose some 1950’s shoe clips or clip-on earrings into a whole new look! The only thing left to finish off the outfit is some sassy red nail polish and a gold bracelet and watch. Ready to try it for yourself? Have fun shopping our awesome steals below!

[FYI: The original post was written prior to Alexander McQueen’s death, in October 2009.]

It’s quite rare to find a designer who does not only great clothes, but also great shoes. The genius that is Alexander McQueen certainly belongs into this category. I always look forward to what he’s coming up with season after season. His shoe designs are sometimes crazy, sometimes painfully cute or edgy or just badass like these grommet slingback booties below. But they are always unique. There is ONE thing that bugs me about his shoes though: the PRICE, of course! Despite being on sale, you’d still have to shell out more than $600 to own these kickass heels. Sadly, this is no option for me.

STEVEN by Steve Madden “TUTORR” Slingback Booties

If you want to channel your inner rock chick as well, try these suede slingback booties by STEVEN by Steve Madden. The platform is higher (= easier to walk in) and the stiletto has been replaced with a cone heel, but otherwise they look practically the same. Also available in blue suede.

bebe “Belinda” Slingback Grommet Booties

Not digging the gold hardware or the suede? bebe‘s “Belinda” Grommet Booties might fit your bill then. They have silver instead of gold grommets and the platform is hidden. These have also been messed up with a cone heel though it’s not as extreme as on the Steve Madden version.
