Friday Favorites: Designer Dupes Lifestyle


Happy Friday, babes! Every few weeks, I’ll be sharing a variety of products I’ve been loving in categories like lifestyle, home, fashion and beauty! You can shop this week’s items quickly below, or keep scrolling to learn more about each! This week I wanted to highlight some of my favorite “designer dupes” – more affordable versions of popular designer products! A lot of these items are fashion related, but there are a handful of home decor pieces in here, too!

#1: This style of shoe is SO popular right now, and this brown pair from Target + white pair from Shein are SO cute (and both under $25!)

#2: I have a very similar bag from a local boutique here in Charleston and it is SUCH a cute accessory! This one looks almost identical but it’s under $40!


#3: I have been LOVING the trend of layered gold necklaces lately, and this set from Nordstrom is only $19!


#4: I have also been loving white vases and lamps lately that have pretty detail, and this vase from Target is a really affordable way to add that style into your decor without splurging on a designer option!


#5: These studs are typically found on Valentino’s, but these DSW dupes are just as cute and under $50 (compared to $500+ at minimum!)



#6: I have these chairs on my outdoor patio and absolutely love them! They are a little pricey at $450 for the set, but I think they look so much more expensive (compared to a very similar set from somewhere like Serena & Lily priced at $1400/chair!)

#7: I LOVE me a good bar cart, and this one is SUCH a cute one for under $150! They also sell so many cute accessories to decorate it!


#8: I searched high and low for an affordable beaded chandelier when I bought my house, because all the ones I fell in love with were $5,000+! I ended up purchasing THIS one from Ballard, but this World Market dupe is even more affordable at less than $200!


#9: Target dupes that look almost IDENTICAL are under $25! Such a cute summer style that can transition into the fall!
