Affordable Alternate to YSL “Kate Monogram”: Carla Ferreri Red Chain Leather Bag

I have NEVER been more excited to receive a package than I was when  I received this bag. So basically my obsession with SECRETSALES and bags has reached a new level. I have mentioned this site numerously in previous posts like Carvela Kurt Geiger Shoulder Bag.  I think this year both me and my sister have just been investing in accessories rather than actual clothing items which makes sense really because they don’t change in terms of sizing and will remain timeless and last for a long time.

Back to the bag, I bought this on SECRETSALES about two months ago, when it was on sale (TBF they do a lot of sales on a daily basis) and yes it has taken that long for it to come. I think unlike all the other items I previously bought with, this brand they only make the item once an order has been placed rather than holding many items in stock. Only after I bought it did I realize it was a dupe to YSL’s Kate Monogram leather shoulder bag.

However being the “frugalist” that I am I will not part with my money for such a small thing, it really doesn’t make any practical sense.

Features of the Carla Ferreri bag I love: 

  • It is leather made with a snake quilted effects/design which I really love because it is reminiscent of the Saint Laurent “small Kate Monogram embossed shoulder bag without the ridiculous price tag of course.
  • The brand “Carla Ferreri” I have actually done a bit of research on the branding and products and I do love their ethos “innovation, shape and elegance“.
  • The color and shape of the bag,  it really does stand out and because of the material its very sturdy and will hold shape for a long time.
  • It has an adjustable leather strap so you can carry it as a shoulder bag, cross bag or even a clutch, and it has various compartments including a back compartment for easy access e.g. passport, credit card etc. And the bag itself comes it a duster bag so I am able to keep it safely in there and it will maintain its condition for a long time.

Unfortunately the bag is no longer on sale at the moment, but it will come back at some point that’s the beauty of SECRETSALES.

I am so excited to use this bag over the summer, what accessory or new purchase are you currently obsessed with ? x
