Dupe That: Chloe Drew

I feel like I’ve been saying this at the beginning of every post but I want all of you to know I am aware I have been very inconsistent. The thing is, not only in medicine, life has a plan for us and things don’t always go according to plan. So I am here struggling to wake up every day and sit down to prep for step 2 which can make or break my chances at a residency. I have also been going through a lot and it’s been an emotional roller coaster. That matter aside, I did find some inspiration after finding an amazing dupe for the famous Chloe Drew Bag.

Let’s finally dive into this blog post. I have another dupe for you today and it is for the magnificent Chloe Drew bag. I do not own the dupe (yet?) but I wanted to showcase it anyway. I recently bought a ton of stuff from Express and as I was browsing (after I had ordered) the site I saw this cute little bag that left me in awe. It is not identical but I think it’s a pretty darn close dupe but it is still unique. I am talking about the Express Turnlock Crossbody. It comes in 3 color at the moment and it is only $40!

The Chloe Drew is a very simple yet sophisticated bag that many believe will become a classic or iconic bag for the brand. It has been around for some time now and it had been very successful and trendy for years now. It comes in different sizes but I believe the medium is the most popular. It retails at the moment for $1,650-$1,950 and THAT is one hefty price tag. Of course, as with any designer bag, the quality of the material is incredibly luxurious, real grain leather and it should be very long lasting. This a beautiful bag perfect for women who want to look lux but modern.

Of course the bags are not identical but they are incredibly similar. The only drawback is that I feel the Express bag is limited in it’s versatility as an evening/going out bag. The overall look is the same except for the chain on the Drew which is all metal, and very sleek which gives the bag an elegant feel. On the Turnlock Crossbody the chain is half metal and half leather which tones it down giving it a more casual feel. The other detail is the closure. The iconic Drew closure features a chain and link while the Express bag has a turn-lock which is much more simple and less sophisticated.

Even with these differences I think I might consider getting the Express bag in the cameo color as I don’t have a similar bag, but we’ll see. Either way, if the Chloe is something you have had your eye on but you can’t or won’t spend the 1k price tag then I think this is a great option.  Since writing this post, I have seen it in store and I really like this bag. It is smaller than the Drew in medium from what I have seen. The only reason I did not get it is because I have my eye on another bag in cameo and I may get that one instead.

Sorry for the short post and for it not being an item I own but I really wanted to share this bag as Express always has sales going on especially during the month of July. It is a great piece to add to any wardrobe and have unique pieces without breaking the bank.

Have you seen any other good Chloe Drew dupes out there? Let me know in the commenta.

  1. I can’t believe the price tag!! That’s crazy expensive but $40 for a dupe?! That’s a steal!! I know some brands complain about dupes calling them “copies” but seriously, the majority of the population can’t buy a bag that expensive. We take what we can get lol.
    Anyway, I think the dupe is gorgeous. Just as much as the original of course. Lol. I only own one crossbody bag but I wanna get more into accesories. I used to be and idk when I stopped caring lol.
    Anyway, I hope that you’re doing well! I wish you the bestest of luck in your residency. I can’t imagine it being easy.

    1. Hey thanks! I know!! At least this dupe is not like identical as others I have seen and they made it similar enough to appeal but unique enough not be a “copy”. I am all into crossbodies recently and I *may* have just splurged on a new and unique one. I am not in residency *yet* but studying for my last big exam before applying. So I will take that luck anyway and thank you for it ❤
