Designer Bag Dupes

I've been thinking of doing this post for a little while now. If you're anything like me then you are completely obsessed with all types of bags. I love different structures, colours, sizes. Of course I have my favourites but I love switching my bags up depending on what I'm wearing or where I'm going. Anyways, ever since I was a little girl I've been this way. And I've always had expensive taste. Not the kind of taste where you know it's expensive so you chose it, no if I was given a completely random set of bags I would probably manage to pick the most expensive option.

Now-a-days there are so many dupes for beautiful designer bags. I was hesitant to do this post because I know a few girls who are super against "dupes" or "fakes" or "knockoffs". Of course I do not condone stealing or tricking anyone into buying a bag they think is real but isn't. I also know that designers spend a lot of time and money designing these beautiful bags. But I cannot fathom how the world worships these bags that the average person will never be able to consistently afford! So without further rambling, I present to you a collection of designer bags and their dupes.

Also, if you enjoy this post please comment below so that I can maybe make this a more frequent thing, because I know I am always looking for beautiful bags at good prices!

Alexander Wang// Rocco

Alexander Wang Rocco

I have seen many different dupes of this bag all over the internet and in store. The Rocco by Alexander Wang is a satchel that can be worn in a multitude of different ways. I really like this bag because it's simple and black so it easily goes with many different outfits, but the studs add a nice grunge effect. I actually have a dupe of this bag which I love (bought from ebay). It fits pretty much anything imaginable, iPad, Mac, you name it. Which is nice because that means you can use it as a school or business bag if you have to. YouTuber's Zoella and SprinkleofGlitter own this bag as well as countless other celebs!

Celine// Trapeze

Celine Trapeze Bag

I. Adore. This. Bag. UGH can I have it? I mean it is just such a classic bag with great structure. I know it comes in many different colours but the royal blue is just so gorgeous. This bag could totally dress up any outfit, although I don't know how Celine would feel with me marketing their bags to wear with sweatpants. I couldn't find the actual price from the Celine website, but I'm sure it's much more than a small town university student can afford. Dream big girls!

Dolce & Gabbana// Sicily

Dolce & Gabbana Sicily

I don't know how to feel about this bag. I feel like I fall in and out of love with it. I do think that it is a classic looking bag, but structure-wise I don't think it's something I would usually go for. I did however read an article featuring Mr. Gabbana himself and the story behind the Sicily bag is really touching. Every year they re-do it in a different way, and this years is absolutely gorgeous. The dupe I found for it isn't exactly the same but I thought it was similar enough if anyone was interested.

Givenchy// Antigona

Givenchy Antigona

This was not really love at first sight, but slowly, our love has grown into something real and deep. But really, I think this bag is perfection. I want to buy one of the dupes for school in September. The only problem I have with large bags like this is that I end up stuffing them with complete junk and garbage and then I can't find what I actually want or need!

Real Antigona Bag - $2300CAD (oh me oh my)

Celine// Luggage 

Celine Luggage Bag

I don't really have much to say about this bag because everyone knows it, everyone loves it, all the celebrities have it. All the rich kids tote it around my university. Is it overdone? Yes, probably. Is it still completely gorgeous, sigh, yes. I would kill to own one. But then again I have a bag addiction and would love any of these beautiful bags.

Phillip Lim// Pashli

Phillip Lim Pashli

I know Phillip Lim partnered with Target a little while back but I couldn't seem to find any of the bags on their website anymore. This bag has a bit more zippers and pockets than I prefer, but I do enjoy it. I think I prefer the bigger version over the small one, although, no disrespect to Mr. Lim, but I find the larger one to be a bit similar to the Celine Luggage Bag. Miss Glamorazzi has one and she pulls it off quite nicely!
