If you just can’t get that €2k tote out of your mind, you’re not alone; we’ve all been there.
We’ve found ourselves visiting it on a regular basis, giving it too much attention: stroking, fondling and caressing it until being forcefully removed from the shop’s premises. Oopsy daisy, lust really is an uncontrollable beast! Does this sound familiar?
If so, we’re here to reassure you that you don’t have to spend big to bag yourself some good looking arm candy, because those crafty high street so-and-sos have come up trumps for autumn/winter delivering a number of lookalikes that don’t cost buckets. Phew.
And lastly, trusty Zara, which (nearly) always comes up trumps. This Fur Snood with contrast dots is €39.95.
The ladylike goings on of this handbag plus that clasp and pocket at the front made the designer Anya Hindmarch pop into our heads straight away. The Hindmarch aesthetic is clear in this Dune baby. It comes in at €95.
Not exactly bank-breaking to begin with, these River Island heels started out at €80, and are now €35. Run!
The combination of brown and black leather on this Warehouse carryall brought Pauric Sweeney to mind straight away. The designer’s bags sit in the thousand-plus euro price bracket while this high street handbag is a bargain at €52.
3.1 Phillip Lim is one of our favourite designer brands and it is clear Marks and Spencer are also fans. This handbag has a flavour of its particular brand of chic coolness that we love. You can sling this leather and suede lovely over your shoulder by parting with €110.
