Do you believe that high end products give you better results? Sometimes the price tag just gives us a piece of mind knowing that we are getting the best since we paid the highest price for it. We are all about investing and sometimes even indulging when it comes to FASHUN but in reality, it really is hard justifying a $3,000 bag to your spouse or even yourself! And sometimes being frugal isn’t really a bad trait especially when it comes to wearing designer inspired pieces without paying the designer price. We have found the best dupes for your dollar and we know you won’t be disappointed!
(LEFT: VALENTINO Garvani Medium Rockstud Bag $1,200. RIGHT: LE CHATEAU Studded Leather-Like Flapover Clutch $29.99)
The rock studded look is synonymous with VALENTINO and we have found the perfect dupe for just $30. The Studded Leather-Like Flapover Clutch has silver hardware and metallic studs with four different color options. Our fave find so far!
(LEFT: VALENTINO Garvani Rockstud Flip Flop $340. RIGHT: LE CHATEAU Studded Jelly Flip Flop $19.95)
These studded sandals are a glamourous warm-weather favorite of every girl, and the little bow detail is a staple from Valentino! This comfy pair is perfect addition to your casual-chic style.
YVES SAINT LAURENT
(LEFT: YSL Cat’s Eye Sunglasses $307.25. RIGHT: ARDENE Heart Cat Eye Sunglasses $8.90)
(LEFT: YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick $45. RIGHT: SHOPPERS DRUG MART MAYBELLINE Sensational Lipstick $10.99)
A classic red is a must have for everyone but that doesn’t mean you have to spend a good chunk of your budget on just one lipstick. Both of these formulas are very similar in their creation being highly hydrating, instant moisture and all-day comfort. The Maybelline dupe is well worth the money.
(LEFT: CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Follice Lace $1,045. RIGHT: CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Arelisen $95)
The similar delicate Louboutin design can be found at ALDO for a fraction of the price while still giving you that extra hot look. The embroidered detailing adds the same look as the Louboutin.
(LEFT: CHANEL Slingbacks $1,005. RIGHT: THE BAY Sam Edelman $175)
The most coveted and unarguably the comfiest Chanel pair is probably worth the price tag but sometimes you cant just drop that much on a pair of shoes so this is where the SAM EDELMAN pair *steps* in. This stylish pair is crafted with durable leather with a padded insole and an adjustable buckle closure.
(LEFT: GIORGIO ARMANI Luminous Silk Foundation $74. RIGHT: SHOPPERS DRUG MART L’OREAL True Match Foundation $19.99)
All we want from a foundation is FLAWLESS COVERAGE and the Armani luminous silk foundation is known just for that, but it definitely comes with a pretty hefty price tag. The Loreal True match on the other hand gives you the same semi-matte, full coverage and comes in many shades to choose from.
(LEFT: EMILIA WICKSTEAD Donna Dress $2,383. RIGHT: TOPSHOP Colourblock Satin Dress $50.40)
This very popular dupe dress is on clearance at THE BAY right now for well under $100 when the original dress is over $2,000! The color blocking is still in style and this vintage style flowy dress is sure to make a statement in your closet for years to come!
We are over the moon about sharing a very concise list of dupes vs. high ends with you, and we truly hope that next time you are shopping you keep in mind that finding unique and statement pieces are actually not that hard IF you know where to look and keep your wallet in mind. It is easy to walk into a store and buy the latest most expensive item but it is far more satisfying to know that you *scored* a deal. We would love to see your finds so do share and tag @KINGSWAYMALL for a chance to be featured on our Instagram!
