Sunday Steals: Stella McCartney Falabella Small Chain-Trimmed Bag on a Budget

Dolls, to the left feast your eyes upon Stella McCartney’s fabulous Falabella Small Chain-Trimmed Bag – the very same one seen upon the arm of Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Hudson, Kate Walsh, Diane Kruger, and Ms. Stella McCartney herself; to the right take a gander at Spiegel’s saucy Foldover Bag with Chains.

While the Spiegel stunner harbors a snap closure, as opposed to the magnetic opening of the magnificent McCartney; for a mere $49.00, in comparison to the $995.00 price tag of the McCartney marvel, it is the perfect compromise for the frugal fashionista. And, given the fact that McCartney’s line is cruelty-free, both are constructed out of faux-leather; therefore, by snatching up the less costly of the two, you aren’t forsaking quality – rather, you are simply holding fast to an extra $946.00!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this sultry Sunday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!

Always a tightwad. (oops glad I did spell check on that or it would have really been a foo-pa or whatever)

Really, some one would pay that much for the real one? Wow.

I like the cheaper one best. Still thought, I am wanting to create a crocheted one just for me...with my own disign. Maybe some day.

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

i'd go for the spiegel one!

Natasha said...

I love the bolder black of Spiegel's bag instead of the gunmetal gray that S. McCartney's bag seems to be. Hope you're having a great day, hon.

Dancing Branflake said...

I can't spend $1000 on a purse. That is against my nature. A tote? Maybe. Love your Sunday Steals!

janettaylor said...

I want that Stella!

Couture Carrie said...

The Spiegel is an amazing buy, darling!
You really do your research!

Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday, E!

Fashionography. said...

I would have to go for the less expensive version. I actually like the color better.

Haute World said...

Wow, that is one good alternative to the Stella bag! Although I fear both might be a tad too heavy for me with all those chains...

Grace said...

Mmm, that style isn't really my thing, but it's a fabulous find nonetheless! And the fact that they're both faux-leather...I don't know why anyone would pick the Stella.

style'n said...

wow I actually like them both :) love the chain detailing!

Josie said...

I LOVE the Stella one -- so very chic. But the other is such a good alternative for the money!

I have a similar bag from River Island and love it. It looks amazing. I love both of these, but definitely prefer the Stella McCartney one.

Pratishtha Durga said...

Wow! if only I had the money. But well... till then, Spiegel one will have to do. Nice bag! Have a great week ahead, girl!

Purses Pastries Etc... said...

Can't argue with any of these points you make here -- Spiegel sounds great!
BTW, the boots in my sketch you asked about are Fiorentini and Bakers, "Bi" boots... they are amazing in "real life!" :)

OneCraftyFox said...

This one is hard... I'll go with Spiegel just because of the price!

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

Great find! As much as I like Stella, I'd opt for the more affordable Spiegel version :-)
