I’ve had quite a few of you ask me for a designer vs dupe post so I figured I would round up a few things that are easily available on Amazon. Keep in mind that links may expire or quantity may sell out & not be restocked, so if you like something I would grab it!
Purses are a great staple item that can really dress up your wardrobe! I will admit when I was younger I would buy a lot of real designer purses but now that I am more mindful of my budget I tend to go on the cheaper side. I can’t see spending thousands of dollars on something that I literally just throw in the back seat of my car.
I’m linking a few different options for each ‘inspiration’ bag. Price points vary – keep in mind that whatever works for your budget is GREAT. Do what works for your wallet – the items that you buy are all going to end up getting worn or used the same way anyway! Here’s what I found for ya!
Burberry has been a great staple brand that has been around since 1865. You could pay over $2k for this ‘medium’ sized purse . . . I found a few purses that had a similar vibe for a fraction of the price. Click on an image to see more color options! Price points range from $23 -40, keep in mind that most of these are smaller purses, but the first black option is actually a comparable size & comes in tons of different colors. I have the camel & LOVE it!
LV is more popular than ever right now, the traditional design will be in style for years so this would be a great investment piece if you are looking to splurge! However, here are a few options that are friendlier on the wallet. Price points are all under $30! If you click on a photo it will also show you more color options that are similar to the LV inspiration purse.
Typically Walmart also carries a line called ‘Daisy Rose’ that are GREAT dupes for the checkered print bags. However, they are sold out most of the time. They also have wallet options too!
Gucci has become wildly popular for it’s Bee emblem along with it’s staple red & green stripes that they incorporate on most bags in some way. This Sylvie Bee purse will set you back by almost $3k. I found some Amazon dupes that you won’t have to take out a small loan to pay for.
As much as I love the look & feel of real designer pieces, I’m not a huge fan of their price tag. I would much rather take a mini vacation, pay off a debt, or save for Anniston’s education or our retirement. However – if you choose to spend your money on a real purse to treat yourself I say GO FOR IT. I’ll secretly be drooling over it. 😉
I would love your feedback! Would you like to see a similar post for shoes, jewelry, jeans etc?! 🙂 Let me know in the comment section which you can find at the bottom of this page. Happy Shopping!
