Designer Dupes | Vegan Versions 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.

I’ve been searching for the perfect denim jacket forever and I finally found it! The best part, it’s under $40! Woot! It has a little bit of stretch, which I love and need (chubby arms, lol). I’ve been wearing it so much and I love how versatile it is! It’s super comfortable too and the material is perfect. It’s a soft and breathable cotton with a good weight to it— love it! If you follow me on Instagram, take a peek at my Instastories, throughout the week I’ll be sharing different ways to wear it.  Happy Humpday everyone!

Kimono Coat

I’m kind of obsessed with this linen kimono coat. I love the drapey effect that the woven linen creates. I’d been searching for a soft trench coat when I stumbled across this Tibi coat and immediately knew it would be mine. The material looked very light weight when I was looking at it online but when I received it, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it’s a heavy weight linen. It’s the perfect transitional piece for going from fall to winter since it can still be layered under an overcoat.

How cute is this little faux-fur puff charm? I absolutely loved Chanel’s “Karlito” and Fendi’s monster purse charms when I first saw them but the use of real fur was a big turnoff so I knew I wouldn’t be buying one. I had put it out of my mind but during a recent trip to Target I was passing by the accessories aisle and I spotted this faux-fur purse charm for $10 (also comes in navyblack and burgundy), it was a no-brainer. Kate Spade also makes some cute faux-fur purse charms.

I’m beyond excited to share this dress with you guys. Midi dresses are some of my favorite pieces. Then length is so elegant and the material of this one is casual enough to be paired with sandals, flats, or heels; it’s super versatile. When we shot this look it was sunny but chilly so I opted for a cashmere cardigan from Donna Karan. I love any dress with YSL’s Tribute sandals, they instantly elevate any outfit. Later that day, after a few hours of errands, I switched to nude ballet flats but kept everything else the same and the look still worked.

Finding the line between casual, comfortable, and chic is the basis for the majority of my outfits. Versatility in every piece is very important to me so that’s what can be expected from my clothing line. This ribbed midi dress will be available for purchase a little later this month along with the rest of my collection.

This leather purse is perfect for toting around everyday. The side pockets are ideal for keeping your cell phone and keys easily accessible, and the color goes with just about everything. Saffiano leather has a crosshatch pattern that makes is easy to identify. This type of leather is easy to clean, most liquids just glide right off. I’m loving this new tote, it’s pairs very well with a casual look and equally with a sophisticated one.

The past few days have just flown by! New projects, furniture shopping, and work have me feeling dizzy! While it’s exhausting me to pieces, it’s also quite exciting. I can’t wait to share some fun new things I’m working on from some of my favorite Etsy shops, it’s going to be so good! We shot these images this past Saturday and I wasn’t able to get them up until now because I’ve been planning and shopping for the house. I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year so I have one month to fill my new house with furniture, decorate it, and tackle the ever increasing chaotic mess that is my home office; all while maintaining my current work flow. The anxiety is kicking in just thinking about it. Getting back to these images, it was late in the day when we decided to shoot these. We were so stretched for time but were able to get a bit of light as the sun was setting. That’s why the first image looks so different from the rest. Even though we were so pressed for time, I just had to shoot these shoes. I found them on Poshmark. They’re by Yves Saint Laurent, one of my favorite designers. These little gems are my new obsession and I can’t wait to style them again.

LEOPARDO

Los últimos días han volado! Nuevos proyectos, comprando muebles, y el trabajo me tienen mareada! A pesar de que me está agotando tanto, es también muy emocionante. No puedo esperar para compartir algunas cosas nuevas divertidas en cuales estoy trabajando. Son cosas que vienen de algunas de mis tiendas favoritas de Etsy, les van a encantar! Capturamos estas imágenes el pasado sábado y  no via sido capaz de publicarlas hasta ahora porque he estado planeando y comprando cosas para la casa. Este año, yo so el anfitrión del dia de Acción de Gracias, así que tengo un mes para llenar mi nueva casa con muebles, decorar, y poner en orden el desastre que crece cada dia en mi oficina. Aparte de todo eso tengo que mentener mi flujo de trabajo actual. Me da ansiedad en sólo pensar en ello. Volviendo a estas imágenes, era tarde en el día cuando decidimos fotografiar este atuendo. Estábamos muy cortos de tiempo, pero pudimos conseguir un poco de luz un poco antes de que el sol se fue. Es por eso que la primera imagen se ve tan diferente del resto. A pesar de que estábamos tan cortos con el tiempo, tenía que fotografiar estos zapatos. Los encontré en Poshmark. Son de Yves Saint Laurent, uno de mis diseñadores favoritos. Estas zapatillas son mi nueva obsesión y no puedo esperar para fotografiar las de nuevo.
