Style steal: Alexander McQueen leather bag

“I got this beauty at an outlet store in Florence for $300. It was originally about $700. The bag’s perfect as an oversized clutch to hold my iPad and other documents on workdays, and doubles as a cross-body bag on weekends.”

#2 Rachel Lim, co-founder and director of Love, Bonito

Style Steal: Bionda Castana leather d’Orsays

“Every girl needs a pair of nude pumps – they go with everything and elongate your legs. I love that these are feminine and edgy at the same time. Best of all, I got them in London for $150 – they were originally about $1,000!”

Style Steal: Vintage Christian Lacroix sweatshirt

“I initially sourced this sweatshirt for www.thefifthcollection.com, but I knew I had to have it for myself. A rare piece like this would normally cost at least $1,000, but I paid $250 for it – a total steal for a piece of fashion history!”

#4 Nellie Lim, fashion blogger
