The Best Designer Dupes


Gucci dreams on a Zara budget.. sharing some of the best designer dupes.


I’m wearing
Denim Jeans, 
White Printed Tee,
Black Jeans
Silver Mules
Silver Rings.

 For most of us, closet goals is an instagram fuelled dream that may never be realised. Naturally we would all loooove a wall to wall rack of designer shoes to choose from each day, or hey I would even be happy with just one pair (the Balenciaga Ceinture boots in a size 7.. kthanxbyeeee) but, damn my sensible approach to money, I can generally think of around 1000 other more practical ways to spend my hard earned dollars, you know fun things like mortgages and power bills… Not to mention the fact that my husband does not (and possibly never will) understand the need to spend $2000 on a beautiful, velvet, quilted, Gucci bag. Sigh…

While I wait for the day that the Gucci bag of my dreams becomes a real life possibility, (one day soon hopefully!), I may have to settle for a look-a-like version to get me by. I have rounded up some of my favourite designer dupes for today’s post so we can all live out our designer dreams.. without blowing the yearly fashion budget in one purchase!

    I am all about mixing and matching designer and affordable clothing and accessories/shoes. I wouldn’t go out and buy a bag with fake CC’s pretending it’s Chanel but I would sport a designer-inspired item like Gucci loafer look-a-likes or a ring purse mimicking Chloe =)
