When you think dupes you may think ‘fake’ which is totally not the case. A dupe is an item structure (shape, texture, look) that is based off a high price item, not a fake (a looks like, claims to be designer but actually was less than $20) like you would find in a back alley! You can find dupes of handbags, sunnies, shoes, clothes, jewelry… you name it, they have it.
A lot of times I fall in love with a piece because of the structure, details or texture not the designer name or price tag (Like a last season fringe Chloe that came with a $2,500 price tag.. I just wanted the fringe tassels not the Chloe name!!), that is when you search for a dupe! Here I’m going to round up my favorite dupes or maybe dupes of pieces that I often post.
**Side note: I often think buying the designer piece is worth it if it’s a classic bag that I will carry for years or something I feel I just cannot live without. The quality is sometimes better on the higher price item but not always! I’ll be adding more dupes as I find them! 🙂

I’ll be sure to keep you guys in the loop as I find and add more dupes! XO,
