PHILIP LIM INSPIRED BUDGET BAG DUPE

Phillip Lim Inspired Budget Bag Dupe

One bag that's been on my wish list is the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli satchel, after spotting it on StyleSuzi and every other cool gal out there. It has that effortless chic vibe goin' on you know. As much as I'd love to splurge on a designer bag, I don't have the justification these days especially with the wedding less than 7 months away! So when I spotted this little black tote, it reminded me of the PL bag. It's obvs not a replica in quality or design but the vibe is definitely there!

The best part it was only £14.99 reduced in the sale from Mango, holy moly what an absolute bargain! It's not leather or has the push lock but for less than fifteen pounds, I ain't complaining.

It has a front zip pocket as well as one on the inside all brass coloured. It closes with a popper so you have to be extra secure ladies but it doesn't gape open super wide. I like to have options when I'm carrying my bag, so the small carry handles as well as the longer strap is ideal for when I want to sling it over my shoulder or carry it in the nook of my arm. It also has a base to sit your bag down, which is always handy. It's not a fancy bag but suits my laid back style when I'm out and about - score.


Have you seen any good designer bag dupes?

  6. I absolutely love this bag. It's so pretty. I've been wanting a knock off Celine bag for so long I finally just bought it. Obviously I'd love the real one but can't complain for $70 right? haha

  7. Well, this is a hard one to resist (was immediately looking for the link in your text)! I tend to always go too big or too small with my bags and lack a good medium-sized one which this appears to be. Love the gold side zippers, so stylish :) Also, just have to tell you I gave 'Scandal' another go this weekend and believe I might be getting sucked in...

  14. I love a good bargain now and then :) I know I have a large Longchamp bag which I just overload so this bag just keeps my essentials! It's such an OTT show but somehow I like getting caught up in the drama....haha (plus Olivia has so many nice coats!)

  15. Thanks Victoria, I know I can't resist a bargain ;)

  21. Definitely, can't resist a bargain :)

  22. Oh wow. that is an amazing price. I was expecting more than that. I saw something similar in Ann Taylor here in the US and it was definitely more expensive.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ohhh I love this! Such a cool bag. And at a nice price! I'm also in love with the Philip Lim bag, but I can't bring myself to invest so much in a handbag. Mainly because I'm clumsy and I always end up scratching my bags against a wall, or they get blue because of my jeans... I would be too paranoid to go out with such a expensive bag, haha.

  24. I think there are 'better' quality replica's out there but I don't mind that :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I know right, so much money for one bag....I can go on holiday with that kind of money haha. I'm super clumsy too, I drop my bag randomly and really need to look after my things more!

  26. I've been on the hunt for a new black bag - this looks perfect! Such a good find :) Really suitsyour beautiful style too!! :)

  29. Love this bag, It really does look high end/designer. I love River Island Bags & H&M too....I'm currently banned from buying anymore though :(

  32. How heavy is it? And do you think the long straps are sturdy enough to withstand good use? Love the bag and thanks for sharing!!!

  33. Haha I know right?! Can't remember the last time I spent so little on a bag. xx

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hey Joyce! It's not too heavy - I hate heavy bags, you know the one that are heavy before you've put anything in it! The long strap is quite sturdy as it held up with the metal clips. xx

  35. It looks just as beautiful! I wasn't that much of a bag junkie but I've been obsessed with one from Zara, it's not really a dupe but kind of the style of the Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag and it has a giant zipper on front. I always get so many compliments when I take it out haha :) X

  36. I just had a look at the bucket bag online, love the style! Zara do some great bags and they're reasonably priced too! xx

  37. I love this bag. It's exactly the style I've been looking for. Although it's not leather, the quality looks really good. I have signed up to get a notification once it's back in stock. Thanks for the recommendation. :) x
