This week we are talking designer dupes or duplicates, these are more affordable versions of a designer item usually offering lower quality materials. As the self proclaimed high/low mixer I enjoy rewarding myself with luxury items but I also find dupes necessary in my wardrobe. I love using dupes to test out a trend or something I'm not sure about. Whether its the size of something or just a new style that I'm not familiar with, I love using dupes to ensure the item works in my wardrobe.
Dupes are great when I want to have fun with trendy items, for example the fanny pack trend which I am loving at the moment but I'm not comfortable spending $1,100 on something that I may find laughable this time next year. So I usually venture into dupe territory when I'm undecided about a luxury item and need to take it for a test run. I also love trying out dupes when I know that something is not a classic therefor I would never spend a large amount of money on it ( my pockets are not set up that way) but I can still enjoy the trend until I get bored of it!
Below I have listed the dupes I have in my collection along with the luxury version, everything will be linked if its still available. Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment letting me know what dupe was your favorite!
