It happens to everyone: You see a celeb sporting the latest "it" bag, fall in love with it, then find out that the price tag is like a bazillion dollars.

Such is the case with Stella McCartney's Falabella line, which is a favorite of Charlize Theron, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna, who have all been photographed carrying different versions of the super cool chain link-trimmed bags.

But here's the thing: Despite costing $1000 and up, Stella's bags aren't made out of leather. Instead they're made out of a special coated cotton. (To quote Joan Cusack's character Cynthia in Working Girl, "Six thousand dollars? It's not even leather!")

Still, we wanted a Stella Falabella bag, or at least something that looked just like it. Enter Us Fashion Editor, Suzanne Marchese, who discovered the most amazing alternative for a fraction of the price at, wait for it, the Gap.

"I love it! So stylish, light and the perfect size to fit all your stuff," she says of the $49.95 version (available at gap.com). Score!
