French Friday! My Chanel-inspired Picks from Zara

Whoa! I’m on a Chanel kick lately! I mean, two Chanel-inspired posts in a row?! First our Chanel-inspired Halloween costumes on Monday and my Chanel-inspired pieces from Zara today. Yes, being a true Francophile, I’m a bit obsessed with Chanel. So let’s keep this theme going.

Last week, I was browsing on Zara’s website to find a bag for work. One that would fit my work laptop, while looking stylish but didn’t cost that much. I purchased two bags only to see that they were too small for my work laptop. So I walked over to Zara at Block 37 at lunch to return the bags but only to find all these Chanel-like items at Zara like tweed pieces, pearls, and quilted purses.  Of course, I wanted to buy it all. But..I need to clean out my closet first to make room for new clothes.

In the meantime, here are my picks, separated by tweed, pearls, and quilted bags. This Chanel lover and Francophile is obsessed with Zara’s current season!

TWEED

I am obsessed with tweed from the J.Crew black tweed jacket that I have to the AnnTaylor tweed dress.

The contrasting tweed top caught my eye and I did end up ordering it as my size was not available at the store. I’m hoping to wear it with leather leggings and heels.

Okay, doesn’t this whole outfit just scream Chanel? And it’s probably about a 10th of the price. I’m a sucker for this tweed jacket with gem buttons, especially paired with the matching tweed skirt with gem applique.

I almost purchased this tweed top with faux pearl details but picked the first top I shared above. If that other top doesn’t work out, I may get this one.

PEARLS

I have a pearl necklace from Chanel but I had to get this tweed necklace with faux pearls as well for days that I don’t want to wear the real thing and to add to Luke’s Karl Lagerfeld costume. LOL!

I saw a very similar cardigan at the Chanel boutique a few years ago. I’m loving this cardigan with contrasting piping and faux pearls.

So I heard the beret is in this season. Oui! I’m also loving this pearly beret.

Confession, I left the store with these penny loafers with pearls.

QUILTED PURSES

I feel like this leather crossbody with faux pearl details is a great alternative or dupe to the real Chanel.

And I’m a bit obsessed with this quilted two-tone crossbody bag!

This black quilted crossbody bag has a similar shape to the Chanel vanity case that I’ve been coveting.
