Chloé Hudson Fringe Bag Dupes

All of you fashionistas out there have most likely seen and lusted after one of these Chloe Hudson Fringe bags.  There are several versions and sizes of this bag but with price tags over 2K I've been on the hunt for the perfect dupe version and I think I found two for you!

The first is the ring fringe bag above.  I actually found this dupe by accident.  Last week I posted about the Chloé multi-color fringe one on Twitter and this week I went to Marshall's before a photo shoot and there it was ......the nearly identical bag by Madison West!  With the $29.99 price tag you know I couldn't pass this bag up! So far it's the only dupe I've been able to find even online that also has the gold rings like the original Chloé design.  It's also more of a suede than the Chloé which is a smooth leather but still just as cute!  I'm seriously so obsessed with this bag I used it in the photoshoot which you will see in an upcoming post! You can also find this bag online at TJ Maxx but hurry because this one will probably sell out fast!

The second bag is also the Chloé tassel saddle bag but just a slightly different version. This bag is just as fantastic but the tassels are knotted instead of attached to rings and you can find the dupe version on TJ Maxx for $19.99. I actually like the dupe version better on this one because I love anything Taupe. Taupe is the most perfect neutral color because it can work for any season!

Which bag would you choose??? The Splurge or Steal???

Fall/Winter Must Haves - Target Dollar Deals know when you go to the target "dollar" section and come out with $100 worth of stuff? know you do it EVERY...SINGLE...TIME.  I'm totally guilty too.

Especially because afterwards I'm usually like, "What the heck did I seriously buy?"  Well have no fear...because right now if you go to your local Target and spend $65 in that sneaky dollar section like I just did you will NOT feel guilty at all. I literally just scored THE most amazing fall/winter haul ever in my freaking life! I didn't buy a TON of things ....but for the prices ....PSSSHHHHHHHH I went crazy!

My Haul included: 

1.  Infinity Scarf - $3 (Similar)
2.  Pom-Pom Beanie Hats - $5 each (Similar)
3.  Neutral Beanie Hats - $3 each (Similar)
4.  A pack of gloves - $3 (Similar)
5.  Blanket Scarves - $7 each (Similar)

That's a total of $21 .....Insane!

The rest of my haul includes some awesome fall/halloween decor but I'm saving that for a later post.  so hurry up ladies to your local Target because I can 150% guarantee that these will not last and most of the items in the dollar deals cannot be purchased online either!

Casual Fall Look + Kate Spade Dupes

Fall casual look / Kate Spade Dupe

Everything is this look is super affordable .....except maybe the Versace Wrap Bracelet but I loved it so much that I had to throw it in.  Leggings and flannels are one of my favorite fall looks because they are super easy, comfy and yes still feminine!
I also do love a good designer item but if I can find a similar item for less I'm usually all for it. A few days ago I just found this adorable fringe ankle boots in Target that are literally identical to the Kate Spade Betsie Bootie! I ended up buying 3 pairs of shoes that day at target but these were my fave for the simple fact that I had seen the Kate Spade version before but at almost $300 they were out of my price range since we are still recovering from spending tons of money on vacation last month!

The ones from target are called the Tatyana Moccasin by Mossimo and they can also be purchased online HERE if you cannot find  them in your local store.  Steve Madden also has a version with a little bit more of a heel on them if you dont want to go totally flat. Check out the Steve Madden ones HERE! These adorable ankle boots are perfect for fall and can go with jeans, leggings or even shorts if you are bold enough! The only bad things is that I will be waiting a couple of months before wearing these because it's still hot as heck here in Atlanta! Fall please come soon!

Waldorf-Astoria El Conquistador Resort

Ahhhhhhh where do I begin.  We just got back from Puerto Rico last night and I'm exhausted.  Like most people I need a vacation after the vacation! Our trip was overall wonderful with a few bumps in the road including a trip to the hospital, a few family arguments & one vacation rental that was a mistake (saving that for another post).....but all-in-all we did have a great time.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

So if you love fashion then I'm 99.9% sure you already know about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you don't know....well let's just say that we can't be friends.

I'm kidding people! But  It's seriously one of THE best sales EVER!

I'm talking like designer brands for like 50% off sometimes like 70% or more.  You definitely need to take note because it starts today ....if you already have a Nordstrom Card. If you don't have one then you can shop the sale in a few days, but it's not to early to start browsing around and get your list of must-haves in order.  I seriously have tons of faves but I'm limiting myself to a select few pieces that i really want.  This is just a cute simple fall look.  You can never go wrong with skinny jeans, wedge booties and a cute sweater!

Nordstrom sale

Nordstrom sale by ericavalentin featuring skinny jeans

I'm loving Rose gold everything right now and rose gold works for summer or fall but I definitely love it more during the fall time and these picks are really reasonably priced even before the sale so right now is a great time to jump on the deals!  The MAC lipstick is actually not on sale but I just adore the darker plum shades during fall and there are some MAC products that are on sale at Nordy's if you shop now. 

Those gorgeous Kate Spade sunnies are also not part of the sale but there are a few pairs of Kate Spade sunglasses that are included

What are you ladies eyeing in Nordstrom for the upcoming fall season???
