Alright, let’s talk backpacks. They’ve been kinda huge last year. And probably will be huge again this year, too. While admittedly this trend has totally gone past me because I’m just more of a handbag person and because backpacks generally make me feel like I’m 10 and in school again, if I had to choose a backpack, I’d totally rock this chain-trimmed beauty by Stella McCartney which is basically her iconic Falabella as a rucksack edition. Just as pretty and just as expensive. Le sigh!

Forever 21 Faux Leather Chained Backpack
Update (08/03/2015): Since all the previously posted Falabella backpack alternatives seem to have sold out, I am happy to report that we were able to find two more Falabella backpack steals. Here we have an amazing, almost spot-on Stella McCartney dupe by Forever 21 which is available in either black, cream or burgundy faux leather for a very budget-friendly $32.90. If you’re a fan, better be fast, I’m sure these babies will be sold out soon as well.

Nasty Gal Aliandra Chain Backpack
Well, well. Hats off to Nasty Gal who did a pretty good job at bringing us the Falabella on a budget. Their Aliandra backpack is similarly pretty, but retails for a wallet-friendly $60 instead. Grab yours now and be the coolest kid on the fashion schoolyard! Nobody has to know it was only $60. A tan version named Dillon is also available.
