We have all seen the notorious Chanel bags from the Classic Flap bags to the Boy Bag to the Chanel Tote Bags. Being a fashion lover myself, I have always dreamed of owning my very own Chanel bag. So, until the time comes where I can afford such a luxurious bag, I will make do with the dupes.
A while ago I did find a dupe for the Chanel Boy Bag on Fashion Drug which is €79.95. The good side of this was it came in both pink and black. Since I love the Chanel bags so much I was planning on purchasing it.
I then found another near identical Boy Bag. It gets even better, this particular bag was even cheaper. It was €44.99 in DV8 but the bag is actually by the brand Gessy. The only big difference from the real thing to the look alike is the famous Chanel logo.
I’m going to start off with the best, which is this fabulous playsuit from Penney’s. I fell in love with it instantly. Penney’s had a very good range of products in stock, I was very surprised with all the lovely stuff in there. This was the first item I picked up when I went into Penney’s and it never left my side afterwards. I am obsessed with the colour of it and the overall pattern. It is a perfect garment for summer and I can’t wait to wear it out. It can be dressed up with a pair of heels, like I’m wearing or it could be dressed down with some sneakers. This playsuit is €16 from Penney’s or otherwise known as Primark.
The only other clothing item I got was this jumper dress, which is also from Penney’s. It has these adorable frill sleeves and it is really comfortable. It was only €10.
Next is shoes, The first pair is a stunning pair of Faith Black Suedette ‘Kenny’ Slip On Trainers. These were on sale for €26.60 in Debenhams. I love the gorgeous scallop detail around the edges. The second pair of shoes are a pair of Pointed Toe Heels. These are comfortable to wear and reasonably easy to walk in. I got these for a look book I’m working on, so that will be up soon. These were €11 in Penney’s.
Again from Penney’s I got this adorable small black backpack. It’s perfect for summer for going out during the day and would be perfect for going to concerts or festivals. This backpack is only €12. I’ve been loving the Fiorelli Backpacks and they are a bit expensive, so this backpack is a cheaper alternative and it’s still super cute.
I also got some individual fake eyelashes for €1.50 and a fruit infuser water bottle for €6. Both from Penney’s. I find it hard to apply regular fake lashes so I’m hoping these will help me ease into the world of false lashes. As for the bottle, I try to drink lots of water so having a water bottle with me helps a lot. I especially love this one because you can infuse fruit to make detox water and if that’s not your thing than you can simply take it out. The bottle holds up to 700 ML and is also dishwasher safe.
The last thing from Penney’s is this Sandal Wood Candle. I love burning candles in my room because it always makes my room smell great. They make the room more relaxing and comfortable. It smells amazing and was only €4. Penney’s always has an amazing range of candles in stock so it’s defiantly worth checking out and as for my recommendation check out the No. Range. I also like No.17 which is Lime and Mandarin.
The last items I got were these XHC Revitalising Coconut Water Shampoo and Conditioner. I personally love these products, I think they make my hair really sleek and shiny. I practically love any hair product with coconut because I think it really helps improve the state of your hair. These can be found in a lot of pharmacies and are really reasonable priced. I found these ones in the Euro Store for only €1.50 each. It’s hard to find online but you can get them on Ebay.
