I was so surprised to see two items nearly identical to items already in my own closet in the month’s issue of InStyle and the latest (fantastic!!! drool-worthy, of course!) J.Crew catalogue. I just had to show you! It was uncanny!
Left: J. Crew, $285…..Right: Mine, F21 a few seasons ago, $25
Closeness match: 75% (theirs are leather and have a slight platform)
The heels on mine are almost identical. You can see them in an outfit in this post!
Left: Burgundy w/ wooden handle Gucci, $2,990.00 (inset is vintage carried by French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy), featured in October 2011 InStyle p. 145
Right: Mine, vintage Henri Bendel, $10
Closeness Match: 75%
The bags are strikingly similar, with the clasps, handle, color, and shape. The wooden handles on InStyle’s are bamboo, mine is carved wood, but it still has the similar indentations
Goodness, gracious, see, I just saved, ohhhhhhh……$2,945.00.
This is such satisfying ‘shopping’!
