Real vs. Steal – Céline Trio Crossbody Bag

What is it about Céline handbags that makes me want to hand out my credit card, close my eyes and say: “But please, be gentle!“? I don’t know whether it’s the hype surrounding the French fashion house or the countless style bloggers toting around Céline beauties on their arm, but for some reason Céline bags have that enviable “je ne sais quoi“-factor that draws me to them. Not that I am anywhere in the position to actually buy a Céline bag right now. But not now doesn’t mean never, right? But until then, I’ll have to settle for a budget-friendly Céline Trio alternative, I guess.

If you’re looking for a real leather option and are are ready to invest considerably more, then this triple zipper crossbody by MICHAEL Michael Kors is a great Céline Trio alternative. $160 seems like a lot for such a small bag, but it’s still better than $1.500, right? Sadly, the best colors are already sold out including my personal favorite, a beautiful cobalt blue huels! Boohoo! Waiting for a restock on this!

Signore Giuseppe Zanotti, you are killing me with your shoes! I constantly find myself craving his fabulous Italian shoes, but the accompanying price tags just don’t sit well with me. For instance, I absolutely adore this nubuck leather peep-toe front-zip bootie, but even the sale price makes me want to faint. $671.25? I don’t think that’s going to happen.

Real vs. Steal – Alexander Wang Donna Hobo Bag

by Vanessa on January 7, 2015

Update: This post has been updated on January 7, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

Last year it was the Rocco bag that made its way around Tinseltown and with one very good reason: it’s AMAZING! The shape was reminiscent of an 80s duffel bag that got a makeover at the fabulous factory and the stud detail made it a great choice for day or night. Though the Alexander Wang Donna bag got less attention, it certainly didn’t lack in the celebrity love department. The bag’s differences made them like distant cousins or perhaps fraternal twins. The Donna is slouchy, only suited for day wear and like its name explains, a hobo bag. But, it is still – oh so perfect!

Urban Expressions Slater Knotted Messenger

If the price tag is just a little too much for you to get your Wang on, then this Urban Expressions messenger bag is your next best bet. Both versions share the same shape, silver hardware, a center zipper, knotted shoulder and front camera-style pockets. If you buy it, we might just be twins, but the identical kind.
