Six Designer Dupes to Buy for Spring



I have been known to splurge on a bag or a pair of shoes from time to time, but only if it's a classic, neutral item that I know I will get a ton of use out of.  For trendier, seasonable items, I definitely prefer to find the best steal.  Today, I rounded up six of my favorite spring designer items and their much more affordable dupes.  I either own or have seen the steals I'm sharing in-person, so I'm happy to answer any questions you may have!  I hope you enjoy {and maybe save a little $$$ in the process}!



I absolutely love this gorgeous, grey Chloe bag, but I could not justify spending over $1K on a cross-body that I would not be able to carry every day.  I found one at Express that looks almost identical for $80!  The one from Express, of course, is not the same quality as the Chloe bag, but I was pleasantly surprised with how nice it looks and feels.

If you haven't already noticed, I really like to spice up my outfits with statement necklaces or statement earrings. BaubleBar has always been one of my go-to places for the trendiest costume jewelry.  While their prices won't break the bank, BaubleBar also designs a line at target called Sugarfix.  Sugarfix costume jewelry is almost identical but a fraction of the price! So why spend $48 on these tassel earrings, when you can spend $12 for ones that look so similar!?  I will say that the BaubleBar jewelry I own does seem to have slightly better quality than Sugarfix, but I typically lean towards the Sugarfix version if it's in stock {plus I can get 4 pairs of Sugarfix earrings for the price of 1 pair of BaubleBar earrings!}

These Karen Walker tortoise shell sunglasses are SO cute and of great quality, but I am not very good at keeping up with sunglasses.  That's why I hate spending over $200 on a pair of shades that I most likely will not keep up with for longer than a few months.  I found these dupes on Amazon for $10 {and I'm already on my second pair, but for $10, who cares!?}.  Of course the quality is not comparable to the Karen Walker ones, but they're still super cute and I wear them all the time!

Marc Fisher makes some of the best shoes! I wish I could afford a pair of these espadrilles in ALL the colors.  But when I came across these Steve Madden espadrilles at DSW last year for $100 less, I scooped them right up. This is my second year wearing them - the quality is great, they're super comfortable, and look identical to the Mark Fisher ones! I love them so much, I just ordered a new pair in black.

Every time I go to Nordstrom or Saks, I walk straight to these Valentino pumps and drool over them.  They are stunning, aren't there?! They also come with a hefty price tag that is hard to justify when I know I would not wear them very often.  I found these at Sole Society for $80 that look so similar and are surprisingly very comfortable!

Lastly, this Cult Gaia Bamboo Ark bag is the hottest spring accessory on the market!  If you follow any fashion blogger, you've seen them post about this bag.   It's so stinkin cute, but very trendy.  I found one almost identical from Amazon and Francesca's for a fraction of the price.  I actually purchased both dupes to compare and you can't go wrong with either!

  3. Why not, the competition of presenting the best and most stylish designer handbag in leopard styles is so much hot that every company wants to dominate the others. https://www.luxtime.su/wallet/gucci-wallet
