Two-Tone

Update: This post has been updated on July 7, 2016. Scroll down to see the new adds.

Leave it to Chanel to make us crave those #grannyshoes we all deemed ugly when we were teenagers. And if it weren’t for Chanel and the iconic CC-logo on the side of the heel, I doubt these would have been quite as popular as they are right now, but even though I know the greater part of the allure of these shoes can be traced back to just being by Chanel, I somehow still understand why so many bloggers and fashion insiders are so in love with these. The two-tone cap-toe, the mid-height block heel, the convenient slingback; it’s the perfect example of 50s retro chic and an absolute timeless classic. By pairing these shoes with modern pieces such as ripped skinny jeans or a cool biker jacket, you will keep yourself from looking like an actual granny in these. And while I don’t know what the exact retail price is for these, we’re talking about Chanel here after all, so I think it’s safe to say that they’re expensive. And apparently very hard to get ahold of these days.

And we’re back to Chanel. Back to the now uber-famous and highly popular Chanel espadrilles, to be exact. We have already written about the black mesh pair and this time we’re showing you the just as lovely canvas version. And while I do think that they are really beautiful and would make a great pair of summer shoes, there’s absolutely no way I’d pay more than $500 for a pair of espadrilles! Not gonna happen, not even if they’re Chanel.

Real vs. Steal – Chloé Drew Shoulder Bag

by Irina on March 23, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on March 23, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

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.

Gucci is currently flooding the fashion world with one must-have item after another! May it be the furry “Princetown” loafer mules (which we’ll be covering later this week) or the super coveted GG buckle belt that has been spotted on every fashion insider and Insta star lately; it simply can’t be denied that Gucci is having a major fashion revival at the moment! The commercial success carried over to the bag department as Gucci managed to put their “Marmont” bags on everyone’s fashion radars as well. The “Marmont” handbag collection is a range of beautiful, wavy quilted bags that look a lot like a Gucci-fied take on Chanel’s classic quilted bags. One of my personal “Marmont” favorites is the black and white chevron chain bag because you know… I looooooooove stripes, big time. But wow, have you seen that price tag though? $2.750. I guess this Gucci bag won’t make it into my shopping cart anytime soon.

Mango “Ginny” Quilted Cross-Body Bag

Luckily, there’s no need to spend almost 3k to get a similar look because Mango has us budget-conscious Gucci lovers covered. Yes, their “Ginny” bag might not be a spot-on “Marmont” dupe, but the overall design is still quite comparable with the “Marmont” and did I mention this bag is only $49.99 as opposed to $2.750? Add to cart, please. Also available in black faux leather, by the way.

I must say: Hats off to Chanel for being able to reinvent the classic ol’ granny shoe and reliven the outdated shoe while casually turning a blast from the past into a massive and worldwide shoe hype that is now gracing the feet of fashion lovers, editors and pretty much every fashion influencer under the sun. I really can’t remember how often I’ve seen Chanel’s infamous two-tone cap-toe slingbacks (or their look-alikes, respectively) lately. They are everywhere; in magazines, on blogs, social media, the streets and on the red carpet. There’s no escaping the Chanel granny shoe and I really don’t mind. While sceptical at first, I definitely have warmed up to the trend now and am loving the enormous influx of grandma inspired cap-toe shoes we’re currently seeing popping up everywhere. And while I do love the laissez-faire style of the highly popular slingback version, for Fall, I do prefer a shoe with a closed back, so these block heel pumps below would be a perfect addition to my Fall wardrobe. But whom are we kidding? This is Chanel we’re talking about and even though I don’t know what the retail price is on these beauties here, I’m quite certain my shopping budget isn’t nowhere near as opulent as it would have to be in order for me to be able to afford the real deal.

Ivanka Trump “Lindi” Two-Tone Block Heel Pumps

Deal: Use promo code BIG to get 20% off sale and clearance items at Lord & Taylor! Offer valid through November 7th at 11:59 PM EST.

After having so much success with their Chanel slingback dupe “Liah”, I guess Ivanka Trump decided they weren’t quite done with riding that Chanel granny shoe trend train yet and so they came out with “Lindi”, a very Chanel-esque cap-toe pump which is basically the identical sister of “Liah” but in a non-slingback version. “Lindi” comes in either beige/black leather or suede and is also available in other colors such as burgundy, black and navy (suede). Like “Liah”, “Lindi” retails for $124.95 (now on sale for $93.75); which seems like a reasonable price for such a spot-on Chanel dupe made of genuine leather. Don’t wait too long with your purchase though as I’m pretty sure these will be similarly popular as Trump’s “Liah” slingbacks, so make your order before your size goes out of stock and while you’re at it, make sure to check out “Jocelynamazon” as well, it’s the ballerina flat version of “Liah” and “Lindi”.
