Ladies it’s time to pack those skyscraper heels up and sling em into storage because 2014 is the year of the flat. Loafers, brogues, desert boots even golf sandals are where it’s at this season. Now I know that it’s hard to part with those beautiful heels but take it from me, you need to give them and your feet a break! So with all that said I have been fiending after a pair of Sergio Rossi flats for a while, only problem is they’re 390 fricking spondulas!! Imagine my excitement when I found a pretty fab dupe in Clark’s! Yes I did a little dance and yes the shop assistants looked very concerned for my well-being. They’re not completely identical but at £65 they’re damn near close enough…for me anyway. Take a look.

How about this laceless Sergio Rossi inspired version? You can get them down Clarks for £64.99
OK so unless you’ve been living under a rock you will have seen the WHISTLES shiny croc pouches/clutches. They’re absolutely everywhere. Again I am desperado to get a hold of one but at £80 a pop they don’t come cheap.
After having a nose round Forever 21 I came across this little guy…
…and it’s only £8.40. I will admit I am still veering towards the WHISTLES version, simply because it’s real leather and I love the chain detail strap. If however you’re not into real leather or simply can’t afford the £80 price tag then this is a pretty good alternative!
This time last year everywhere you looked there was a pony hair clutch to be seen. I treated myself to the Ted Baker pink Pony Clutch and I have never seen so many people fascinated with a bag as when I went out with it. This season the trend is just picking up steam. I have been searching high and low for a black version and until last week could only find a very pricey SAINT LAURENT option.
Coming in at £570 it’s ever so slightly out of my price range.
When I spied this calf hair version in WHISTLES I kinda immediately needed it! At £95 it’s a steal, no?! If any of you have seen a cheaper dupe please let me know because my WHISTLES obsession is getting slightly out of hand!
PEACE & LOVE
