Celebrity Style: Beautiful People "Little Rose" Shoulder Bag.....Or Something Like It

There isn't a shopping trip I make that doesn't consist of coming across a "tween" girl carrying a Chanel bag. And before anyone tells me those bags probably belong to their mothers, the styles these girls tote around are very, very new. It's unlikely any woman would allow her barely teenage daughter out of the house with a brand new $2000 bag unless, of course, it actually belongs to the young girl. It's insane to think about it, but I know it happens ALL the time so there's no need to debate the topic any further.

Part of the reason many teens feel the need to carry such expensive bags is because their celebrity idols are doing it. When young starlets like Hayden Panettiere and Miley Cyrus are photographed with Balenciaga or Louis Vuitton bags, it's understandable those fashion choices will influence their young fans. So it's refreshing to see a sweet young star carrying an inexpensive bag while conveying the point that her fans don't need pricey bags to look and feel good.

Selena Gomez is undoubtedly a beautiful girl with simple, fresh style that other teens can easily emulate. Her handbag choices are of particular interest. She mixes designer bags from labels like Coach and Michael Kors with age-appropriate selections from American Eagle and Urban Outfitters. It seems she prefers the less expensive but still cool versions of less affordable designer bags as well. Here's a photo of Selena on her recent trip to NYC for her Live with Regis and Kelly appearance. Her soft, polished look is capped off with a chain-strapped rosette shoulder bag. Selena's bag is a suitable imitation of the real deal - the Beautiful People "Little Rose" Shoulder Bag ($305). This Miami-based label has created a moderately-priced collection of handbags that both moms and daughters can choose from. The original is crafted from slightly distressed calfskin leather and features a magnetic framed top, rose-shaped exterior and Chanel-like leather/chain shoulder strap. While I'm certain Selena could easily afford this gorgeous Beautiful People "Little Rose" Shoulder Bag, the 15 year old in her is more than happy with the thrifty replica.
