Frugal Friday: Designiverso Channels Chanel

Grab them while they’re hot! Seriously. Not only are these, ahem, familiar-looking bags flying off the shelves, Chanel may be taking up legal issues so snap up both colors while you can!
Can you blame them for going for it? Designiverso has created a tongue-in-cheek ode to the classic 2.55 jumbo-flap bag. For a shockingly low $144 (can you even get a pair of jeans for that price these days? I’ve paid more for linen-cotton blend T-shirts!), this is cheeky, cheap fun you should make no apologies for. So what if it’s PVC, not lambskin! Toss it around all summer and then forget about it come Labor Day. Tanned taupe ($133) is as neutral as can be, but such caprice calls for neon orange ($144). And if you’re feeling guilt towards the house of Chanel, Coco herself said it best: “Imitation is the highest form of flattery.” On Luisa via Roma.
