I don’t believe in knock-offs when it comes to handbags or shoes. But when you’ve just had a baby and can’t get rid of those last 10 lbs (which has NOTHING to do with eating banana dulce de leche ice cream from MILK on Beverly Blvd. several times a week), a little faux Chanel never killed anyone, especially when you’re co-hosting a holiday party and you don’t want to drop a fortune on something you’ll hopefully only wear once. I got this little black dress ($25) at Target in West Hollywood, and the necklace (£10) at Top Shop in Dublin. Paired with some vintage Chanel earrings (a Christmas gift from my parents circa 1990, does that count as vintage or just old?) for street cred.
