REAL VS. STEAL HANDBAGS
I recently read a post on Song of Style about her favorite purses and all the bits and bobs she keeps inside of them. This girl is my fashion guru. If you don't follow her on snapchat and instagram go do it now! My sister, Justine, and I constantly talk about how we want to be like Aimee and her sister, Dani. They are seriously hilarious. Okay, okay, I'll stop talking about my girl crush and get to the point. In her post, she talked about her go-to bags. Her repeat offenders are, her Celine box bag, her Chanel quilted bag, her black Celine mini box bag, and her Chloe drew bag. Obviously all these bags are any fashion girl's dream but for many of us, they are far from reality. I went on the hunt to find affordable versions of these covetable designer handbags for real vs. steal.
This Rebecca Minkoff 'Love' Crossbody Bag is still a bit pricey but a fraction of the cost of its doppelgänger, the quilted Chanel. If you're trying to achieve that classic Chanel look without sacrificing a few months rent this bag is a great option.
The Celine Box Bag is a favorite amongst fashion bloggers. Check out this super affordable version at forever 21.
The Chloé Marcie bag has to be my favorite out of the bunch. This affordable version comes is black, wine, green, and Navy.
And finally, the beloved Chloé Drew Bag. I found this similar bag at ALDO for only 45 dollars!
Which bag is your favorite?
