11 Gorgeous Vegan Designer Bags | Cruelty-Free Dupes of All Your Favorite Designer Handbags

Hi guys! At your request, I put together this designer dupes handbags post for your viewing and shopping pleasure, simply click on the handbag name to shop it. I’m including links to both the designer items as well as the dupes so that you can better compare both items if need be.

That said, the whole point of this post is to show you two things. Number one that you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars or even hundreds to buy cute & stylish handbags. Number two that there is absolutely no need to use animals for accessories. Your style can be cute and cruelty-free simultaneously.

One last thing before we get to the post, have you seen the news about Vegan Fashion Week?! It’s so neat! It starts today in Los Angeles and it’s the first ever Fashion Week that’s 100% Vegan! I can’t wait to see all the gorgeous vegan accessories and clothing that’ll come out of this show!

I’ll be sharing more vegan brands soon but in the meantime, make sure you sign up for the blog newsletter to get new post notifications, exclusive content, and be automatically entered to fun giveaways!

Chanel “Boy” Bag $5,600

Chanel ” Boy” Dupe $21 via Amazon

I’ve had my Chanel Boy Bag dupe for a little over 2 years now and it’s still in great shape. I thought, given the price point, that this bag was going to fall apart after a few months but it’s held up very nicely. I used it for two of my recent outfits. See how I styled my Chanel Boy Bag dupe with pops of red here, with leopard print here, and with camouflage here.

Let me know by leaving a comment here or over on my Instagram.  Let me know what you thought of this post, or what else you’d want to see in these kinds of posts. I hope this post helps illuminate those that think vegan handbags and accessories are dull and boring. I’m also going to be sharing some awesome vegan brands that offer gorgeous pieces across all style categories, so stay tuned for that. Let me know what you thought about this post or if you have any categories you’d like me to cover for next time. I love hearing and seeing all of your feedback!

Twist Front Midi Dress

Dress: Zara (sold out, similar here, here, and here) | Shoes: Callisto | Bag: Amazon | Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters | Earrings: vintage (similar here) Lipstick: Kat Von D (a go-go) | Lip liner: Kat Von D (a go-go)

Summer has officially arrived but I didn’t need a calendar to tell me that. No, here in Las Vegas, the temperature was already crossing the 100-degree mark well before June 21st. While I’m loving the longer daylight hours, I’m not really a fan of this 110-degree weather; but I am loving all of the cute summer dresses I found at Fashion Show Mall last week. This dress is from Zara but it’s already sold out! I can see why, it is SO comfortable. I’m keeping a lookout to see if gets restocked because now that I’ve worn it I want to buy another. Plus it was only $29! I’ll let you guys know if it comes back in stock. I’ve linked other similar dresses with the cute twist front detail.

Is there anything more summery than a bright orange lip? I’m loving this color from Kat Von D, it really pops and goes so well with just about everything. I’m wearing the color “a go-go” in both the liquid lipstick and the lip liner. Did you know Kat Von D is vegan? Yep, she is, and so is her makeup line. The entire line is vegan and cruelty-free! Ok lastly, I also have to mention how awesome these wedges are. They are super comfortable and they go with everything! The come in tan and black and they’re made of vegan leather. They do run large so I advise sizing down by a whole size.

Oh and I almost forgot about one of my favorite items! I can’t end this post without mentioning one of my favorite pieces of shapeware. These Spanx mid-thigh shaper shorts are one of the best pieces of shape wear I’ve ever worn, and trust me, I’ve tried a lot. They’re so comfortable to wear, even in 110 degree weather. They’re breathable, lightweight, they stay in place and perfectly smooth everything out but don’t make you feeling like they’re squeezing the life out of you (lol), and they don’t have that annoying plastic trim on the inside thigh seam like other shapers do. I highly recommend them! They come in black and nude.

Top: Nordstrom (sold out) | Jeans: Nordstrom | Shoes: Valentino | Purse: Macy’s | Sunglasses: Marc Jacobs | Necklace: Love Always XO Designs | Bracelets: similar

Marc called this outfit “ballerina goes to business school”. Lol. I’ve been anxiously waiting to wear this sweatshirt ever since I first purchased it during the Nordstrom anniversary sale. And now the perfect weather has arrived! It’s finally starting to cool down, here, in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, this top sold out already. But I’m keeping my eye on it, in case it comes back. I love how soft this top is. The material is slightly thick, almost sweater-like but not quite, making it a perfect transitional piece. The fun ruffle accent is my favorite part. This top is something I’d typically never wear but I’m trying to add more color to my wardrobe and since having Athena, pink has become one of my favorite colors. I swear I loathed it with a passion before she came along. And now, well, I’m wearing this pink top, staring at pink bedding for Athena’s crib, and I just purchased pink curtains for her nursery. I don’t know what happening to me. It’s a good thing pink is trending right now!

I’m also really excited about these jeans. Black skinny jeans are a wardrobe staple and these are the perfect pair! Especially if you’re curvy. Finding skinny jeans for curvy girls, can be work. These hug you so well and they don’t sag. They’re also super comfortable, they fit true to size, and they go with everything; winning! Lol. If you’ve been looking for a pair of basic black skin jeans, look no further, you’ve found them!
