The biggest fashion heartbreak is when you find something you LOVE and it’s way over your budget. We’ve all been there. Here are three tricks to getting that item you love within your budget:
- Google the item! Sometimes stores carry the same items for even better prices. If you google the name or description of the item, you will find something similar or even the same piece! When trying to find a top, try using key words like “dupes” or “small business” or “inexpensive”. That helps to narrow down your search.
- If you really love it- check back in a week. Sometimes stores have random sales and you might catch it at the perfect time!
- Did we forget about Pinterest? You will find SO much on Pinterest with a simple search like “Gingham Ruffle Top.” Pinterest will be your best friend in this research process!
Below are some prime examples of finding a dupe of an item you love!
This Camo Jacket is $1,575. With a little research here is what you can find:
This Camo Star Sequin Jacket is only $72! Winning! Perfect for the fall and even some chilly summer nights! Plus this jacket has sequins so it’s a better win in my eyes 😉
This Gingham Smocked Off the Shoulder Top is $395! It’s easy to think you may not find something that would have a great fit or material but not until you look:
This beautiful Blue Striped Peplum Bow Top is basically a dupe! It’s not gingham but the style matches the luxury item perfectly and for only $78.
How gorgeous is this Striped One Shoulder Ruffle Top? It runs for $118! Though it’s not too bad of a price, doesn’t hurt to try. Right?
