I recently discovered Misspap’s take on the classic Chloé Faye shoulder bag, after reading a blog by The Alice Edit. I had to buy it straight away! I absolutely love the Chloé designs but then again, who’s got £1.2k lying around for a bag? It’s not something I’d normally buy but in this case (and for only £19) there’s not much to lose. I’ve never ordered from Misspap before and I’m always weary of ordering from these kind of websites (Zaful, Romwe etc…) as you never really know what you’re going to get, but I had to try this bag out for myself! So here are my thoughts on the Chloé dupe..
I really think this a gorgeous bag and it sits well on the body too! The straps are adjustable so can be altered if need be. To be honest when it first arrived I was a little disappointed with the quality of the faux suede at the top as it’s very slightly discoloured. However, I had to remind myself it was only £19, and for that, you really are getting what you paid for – and much more! I’ve been using this bag non-stop since it arrived and I love it! Delivery was surprisingly quick too so no complaints there.
This particular bag does also come in black and beige on the Misspap website (which would be slightly less obvious dupes), but I’m not trying to pretend it’s real, and I love the blush pink colour, so decided to go for this one. If you’re like me and wear a lot of dark clothing, something like this can really brighten up a dull outfit. It’s a great size too, with just enough space for essentials. This is good if you’re anything like me and have a habit of overloading bags with useless items.
I would 100% recommend this as an option for those who don’t want to splash out over a thousand pounds on a Chloé bag. It’s such a gorgeous design so it’s good to know there’s a decent alternative available. I wasn’t sure at first, but after using it a few times, I’m slightly in love. I may even have to order the black one too! I’d also order from Misspap again as I was really pleasantly surprised by the website and delivery – definitely a hit!
