Queen Street Sling Bag Dupe for Chole Drew | Fashion Finds


Bag Fit For A Queen

Happy Friday! I'm back at it with a fashion find which was a series I started way back when which is where I feature a fashion item I found and talk to you about. It's like a review of a bag like this will be or a pair of shoes, my favorite accessory I bought or maybe a clothing item so just basically any type of fashion item. I used to do this quite often and mostly every Saturday and they had how I styled an item or a trend as well so it wasn't just of stuff I owned or technically found. If you want to read more fashion finds I have a whole lot here. Today's is about a bag that I am completely in love with and is my favorite thing at the moment. It is so pretty and one of my favorite colors plus it is a dupe for a designer bag I've been lusting after. All and all it is perfect and I will tell you more about it now and how I am liking it!


This was actually not my first choice and I had something else already picked out. I was sure I made up my mind but I kept scrolling and promised myself a few more pages (because there was so many I don't think I could have went through them all) and I would stop at an even number. I guess something was telling me to go on because on the next page I saw this one and instantly felt a connection like we were destined for each other. I hope I'm not the only one who looks at a bag and falls in love like it's a human. However I now had a problem since I loved two bags so much and just couldn't decide myself that I even did a twitter poll on which one I should get but in the end this one won. I totally agree because it is just this perfect thing of beauty.

The thing that really sold me was a big factor in my decision making.One thing I liked about it was a dupe for the Chloe Drew and though I don't have that kind of cash to drop on a bag like that yet I get kind of something similar which I am happy with. The shape is really similar just without the huge lock on the front that I've seen it has in pictures. It's isn't an exact replica which is nice so it doesn't look fake but it has sort of the same look at the same time. I also don't think it comes in a color this bright and has more softer tones but this is really out there and it is the second bag I have in this hot pink shade. 


Description from (here): Let your style come full circle with this Round Sling Bag from Queen Street. This bag features a small yet roomy compartment to store your personal necessities.

- Leatherette
- Chain strap
- Flap detail with gold tone hardware
- Twist lock enclosure

It has this unique shape and is round on the bottom. I actually don't own a bag like this since most are square or rectangle in form. The material is to be describe as leatherette which I think means it just fake and has the same texture. I actually like the scratchy texture of it and it has been a while to have something like it. The gold hardware is perfect since I've been in love with gold lately and love everything to match. The chain is quite comfortable and just the right length so it hits me on the hit which is where I wear my bags generally. The only complaint I have with this bag after making it out with me is if it is quite heavy then the closure unlocks and opens up the flap. It isn't that sturdy and isn't tight so it can turn to open. It's kind of downside and means I can't load it up too heavy but if I have a few essentials then it is fine. So that is the only faulty bit with it but my dad says he can fix it up to make it not open as easily on it's own.


It's quite roomy inside and can fit a lot of things in surprisingly. The lining is black inside and has a brown leatherette patch saying the brand too. I imagined it to be much smaller but when it came I was actually happy that it would be able to fit more stuff. I usually carry my wallet which isn't that big, my iPhone 6 and it can fit a tiny makeup bag filled with makeup touch ups. I also think it will hold quite a lot of lipsticks so if you are a lippie hoarder like me then you'll be able to lug quite a few around at the bottom of this. It has a small pocket inside but probably can't fit my phone so I don't really use it. I even manage to fit a vlogging camera inside and a spare batteries when I took outfit pictures with my Nikon DSLR. As I said only downside was the flap kept opening from the weight and with it over my shoulder. I don't think I'll fill it up as much next time and have it as a nice going out bag instead. The circular shape doesn't affect the storage and it can still fit odd shaped items in it if you need to. Overall I say it was a pretty good bag for the price. It had one kind of not so good thing but the rest was spot on. It is quite durable, the color doesn't get dirty plus the material can be easily wiped off just in case. The chain is sturdy and doesn't snag which I had happen in the past with other bags like this. A pretty good bag to take with me to either dress up or made casually. If you'd like a what's inside my bag for this I'd love to do one but I feel like I just did one in blog form so maybe a video next showing you inside.


Also happy Good Friday if anyone celebrates it. I didn't do much but its nice having a long weekend. That was everything about the bag and how much I freaking adore this thing. I hope you enjoyed this fashion finds of my new favorite bag. I'd love to know if you ever bought a similar looking bag to the one you want or just save up and get the designer one right away. It would be nice to know or maybe I'm the only one. It was so fun to start doing my fashion finds series again and I have a few more coming up and ones I have planned so if you missed them I'm slowly coming back to it. Have a fab Easter weekend lovelies!

What is your dream designer bag?

  1. Such a cute bag. I'm lusting after a Chloe Faye though, so I may have to keep my pennies for that.

  3. :O It's... *whispers* it's beautiful...

    Shame about it coming open - the same thing happens to me with quite a few of my bags! And I fall in love with bags like people too. Bags, shoes and lipsticks are my weakness! I don't really have a dream designer bag, but I'm a big fan of Radley bags/purses so I might invest in one of those at some point.
