Value VIP

I am starting a new weekly post on this here blog choosing 1 or more VIP looks from the week and re creating it on a budget.

I am loving this idea which I originally got from BooHoo who have asked me to re-create a look of a female who inspires me.

For the first week I’m not re-creating anyones look I’m going to be choosing some designer handbags and finding some affordable alternatives, I hope you like it.

First up this beautiful Chloe Cross Body Bag which retails for £1,105 from their runway collection.

In keeping with the black/tassels look, this pure suede cross body bag from Oasis is perfect for festival season and a great price at £14.99

Next up, YSL! I am in love with this clutch and have had my eyeball on it for ages but I think I would get more use out of the purse so I’m still deliberating. However, this croc embossed clutch bag is £795 and I’ve found the perfect croc dupe for only £29.99.

The great thing about this is if you want to treat yourself to a designer item you can purchase this gold YSL keychain and attach it to a bag and instantly give it a make-over, the one below is from net-a-porter and is £160.

Following on with the croc theme is this Mulberry Tote, as beautiful as it is it’s painfully priced at £1,200, however, you can stick with a relatively ‘designer’ name tag with this Paul Costelloe Tote which usually retails for about £250 but I have a link below for you to buy at just £69.99, I meeeeeean a saving of £180 is reason enough to buy this one isn’t it? It’s real leather too!

So, that was just 3 bags that I thought I’d start off with, is this the kind of thing you’d like to see more of? Also, if there’s a certain designer item you’d like a cheaper alternative for just drop me an email, I know you lot aren’t shy, which i love of course.

Hope you’re all well, I’ll do an update on my ‘healthier living’ soon just a teaser for you I tweeted this-
