I swear Céline makes the most lustworthy bags on the planet. And this Classic Box Bag rocketed to being no. 1 on my personal wish list. For the last 2 years, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect medium sized satchel bag in a classic shape and as soon as I laid my eyes on this particular Céline bag I knew it was “The One“. Then I cried out in utter desperation; $3,400 for this small boxy bag? With all due respect to Phoebe Philo and her incredible talent to create the most coveted bags worlwide, this price is absolutely outrageous and unjustifiable! When did designer fashion get so overly expensive anyway? It’s a worrying development in fashion I noticed over the last few years. But I digress…

GoJane Buckle Strap Satchel

In terms of quality and longevity these Céline bag look-a-likes by GoJane are nowhere near a close match, but they’ll give you the same coveted look of simplified elegance and, most importantly, these satchels are actually attainable for the masses by costing less than 1% (imagine that!) of the original. Now if that ain’t something to think about. Looking at the stated bag dimensions on the website I assume the GoJane bags come in the mini size rather than the medium size, but at $30 a pop I’ll take one in every color anyway.

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.

Fellow vegans and vegetarians unite! Stella McCartney has created an all vegan faux leather handbag to mimic the lavish style, without resorting to animals to achieve a luxurious appeal. Not only is Stella McCartney a lifelong devotee to vegetarianism, she has also an impeccable tailoring and wonderful taste to fulfill the desirable expensive, leather look. This Shaggy Deer Falabella Fold Over Clutch is bold and has a super edgy look and ultimately can be the key accessory to any outfit. As much as I would love to own any piece from her vegan collection someday, especially this one, I can’t afford to pay such a grand price. However, there is no reason to fret since we have such beautiful and affordable alternatives below!

Latico “Crawford” Clutch

There is no reason we shouldn’t indulge in the Stella McCartney style, especially when the price tag is less than 13% (sale price!) of the real deal’s sale price. This “Crawford” Clutch by Latico is certainly more affordable, yet it looks just as expensive. And though the silhouette and structure of this clutch is minimal the overall result is maximum impact. The chain embellishments are edgy but chic at the same time and for utmost versatility one can wear it with a drop-in chained strap or simply as a clutch. Additionally, this clutch comes in an array of colors such as red, taupe, metallic white and mocha leather.

Traffic People “Emily” Chain Shoulder Bag

A favorite steal of mine is this “Emily” Chain Shoulder Bag by Traffic People. It is currently on sale for £25.68, but still pertains and upholds to the appearance of the Falabella Fold Over Clutch. Here it is pictured in the black color; however, the navy blue is just as amazing! It is not only efficient in functionality, but also the best priced look-a-like alternative. For extra savings, one day shipping is free if you are located anywhere in the UK or EU. Although international shipping is available, the downside is that shipping prices become a bit steep (£20 flat fee per delivery for all non-EU countries).

Chloé has created quite a few “It“-bags in the last 10 years, but it’s been rather quiet on their bag front lately. Well, that’s not entirely sure because there’s one bag that is currently making the rounds and getting a lot of hype and exposure – the “Alice” tote, a large two-tone bag that has the shape of a classic doctor’s bag. I’m usually not a big fan of colorblocking on bags, but this one I find very pretty. I really like its classic elegance and clean lines and the gold hardware gives this bag that extra oomph. But this beauty comes at a price. At $2.195, to be exact.

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.

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.
