Designer Bag Dupes - Celine Luggage Tote, Saint Laurent Sac de Jour & Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC

It's no secret that I'm obsessed with handbags - I love reading about the hottest it-bags and making a virtual wishlist. A side effect of my obsession is that I can always spot which 'store' bags are inspired by designer versions (designer bags for less)...it's like a sixth sense! Although I love saving up for a special bag - sometimes it's better to get an "inspired" version - either because it's a better fit for your budget, or you think you may get tired of the style - OR you might want to test out the type of bag before investing in the designer version. Here are a couple of great dupes I saw on my last shopping trip...but believe me - I could go on for days! If you have a specific bag you're looking for - leave me a comment and I'll tell you if I've spotted a dupe somewhere!


1) Saint Laurent Sac de Jour ($$$$) vs. Express ($$)

2) Saint Laurent Matelasse Shoulder Bag ($$$$) vs. Forever 21 ($$) 

  • The perfect evening bag!

3) Celine Micro Luggage Tote ($$$$) vs. Michael Kors Colette ($$$) 

  • The Colette is currently on my wishlist - I love structured bags and I adore the cheerful yellow color.

4) Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC ($$$) vs. Forever 21 ($$)

  • Such a cute cross-body bag for the summer.

5) Phillip Lim Pashli Mini ($$$) vs. Forever 21 ($$)

  • The Forever 21 version is actually an exact dupe of the "Target Pashli". Although I already have a Taupe Pashli - I'm crazy for this Mini Pink one!

Speaking of bright colors, I've been wearing a lot of jewel tones recently. I've wanted a cobalt blue dress ever since Kate Middleton's engagement photos (please tell me I'm not the only one!) so I decided to give this dress a try. Of course the style is very different from Kate's Issa one but I'm a huge fan of crocheted/lace dresses. It's slightly shorter than my usual picks so I paired it with opaque black tights.

I wore this orchid-colored top to a Photography course I took with Elaine. The color reminds me of this dress that I borrowed to wear to a wedding.

Which bag dupe is your favorite? Mine is the Michael Kors Colette!

  1. My favorite is MK Colette too. When I first saw it a while back I had to tell myself to stop, just stop buying bags lol. Love that blue dress on you, so pretty!

    1. Ha ha...I know what you mean about needing to stop...but I think I'll always have space in my closet for the Celine Nano type bags (like my Coach mini-Tanner and Pashli mini) - they're my most used bags as they're so practical - lots of space yet small and easy to carry ;-) See - I just convinced myself that I NEED the Colette LOL!

  2. I could let you go on for days! I go through spurts of saving for a nice handbag or a great pair of heels. Right now I'm saving my pennies for a great pair of LB's. ;)

  3. My favorite is the saint Laurent bag! What a gorgeous dupe, and I can't believe its from forever 21! I mean really?! I'll have to check it out! I'm in the market for a nude clutch or evening type bag for the weddings I have coming up. I have my eye on one that's priced at 98 dollars from nordstroms but I'll look into this one too :)

    1. I haven't seen any sadly - it is a very unique shape! Have you tried the coach outlets? They sometimes have a factory version for cheaper? Or even send the earlier seasons stock there. Will definitely update if I see a dupe :-)
