A Budget ‘Chloe Faye Bag’

Last month I posted a picture on my Twitter feed of the Chloe Faye handbag, declaring my undying love for it and how I wished for it to be my new piece of arm candy. 

Unfortunately I still haven’t won the Lotto (what’s that about!?) nor has a super wealthy generous  family member stepped forward to help my plight. 
I was having to face facts. Me and the Chloe Faye bag would just never be…. (woe is me).

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1489057938568?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

So I’ve been on the hunt for a cheaper alternative ever since and luckily for me, what with the Chloe Faye bag being such a IT bag right now, there are some great affordable high street stores that have picked up on the design and come up with their own take on the muchly sought after bag.

So let’s talk Matalan (it’s worth it I promise). Its not usually a shop that I think of when I’m thinking fashion. Home stuff,oh yes yes yes! The teacups that I have found in there.
  But fashion….

 All that aside, I popped into my local Matalan a few days ago to pick up some homey bits and bobs, and I nearly fell over myself when my eyes landed on these handbags. 

It was meant to be, The Handbag Gods were shining the way for me. 

At £16 pound this little Chloe wannabe was coming home with a now little ole trendy me. 
So dont despair when you come to the realisation that you can’t fork out £££££££££ for the designer handbag of your dreams. 
There’s always a great knock off waiting for you around the corner, in sometimes the most unexpected places (insert syfy music here). 

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1489058149131?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

    That is a stunning bag and what a great find! You are the second blogger whom have mentioned Matalan, I wonder if they ship worldwide?
