UPDATED 11/26: Hey, all! I’m noticing a spike in traffic on this post – looks like this is a popular search around the holiday season! Unfortunately, the bag I originally linked to in this post is no longer available. BUT, I did some more searching and found a few alternatives!
This bag looks very similar to the one I originally linked. Price is still pretty reasonable and it comes in lots of pretty colors!
This one doesn’t come in as many colors but is only $29 bucks!
If you come across any other alternatives, please link to them in the comments. I know this is SUCH a hard bag to find without the $2k price tag. The goal of this post is to help those that have been searching in the depths of Google (me!), so PLEASE share if you any other resources!

I don’t claim to be a fashion blogger, but I feel obligated to write this post as a fashion-public-service-announcement. We all know the Chloe Drew bag, it’s on all the fashion blogs. She’s stylish, functional, comes in a bunch of great colors, and a two thousand dollar price tag. Yeah, right.
A little back story: I decided back in April that I wanted something similar, and about $1950 less, for the summer. I ordered a kind of look alike from Aldo. I waited and waited and waited before I realized they canceled my order (without telling me) because it was out of stock. Whatever, moving on. Only not really because I became obsessed with finding this bag. I consider myself to be pretty good at finding things in the depths of the interwebs. I could not find a bag that actually looked like the Drew, and was under $100. But I was fixated at this point and it became more about the search than the actual bag.
After, quite honestly, hours of internet searching I found it. The very best Chloe Drew look alike! It’s actually more like an exact replica. And on Amazon of all places. I love Amazon and buy everything from TV shows to shampoo from them, but I never thought to look for a bag!
This Amazon bag is a huge win (I’m having a hell of a time trying to get this link in, so you’re just going to have to click on the below image, the one on the right, if you want to check it out). I’ve had it for about a month now I love it. The quality is great. I’m hard on my bags, and I’ve had no issues with scratching or the chain strap- two things I was worried about. This isn’t an everyday bag for me, it’s more like an out-on-the-weekends clutch, but I anticipate it lasting longer than just this summer (having it for this summer was my expectation). It’s also much bigger than a typical cross body bag, it’s deeper and thicker, and actually fits a ton of stuff.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this awesome find in hopes that someone out there will find it and spend far less time looking for a Chloe Drew look-alike than I did. You’re welcome!
