Happy Monday! I wanted to start the week off with this post as it’s one I’m really excited about. If you know me, which you will get to :), you know that I love a good deal. I’ve always loved designer goods but don’t really have the ability to support that love haha.
This year I did purchase my first designer bag, a Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM. I have to say I did not have buyer’s remorse after purchasing that bag. To me, Louis Vuitton bags are a classic. They never go out of style and I see them as an investment piece. However, there are some designer goods that I see more as a trend and not going to be around for the long haul.
I have rounded up my favorite designer dupes from Amazon. These pieces are all great quality and are so close to the real thing. I’m obsessed with the black belt as well as the black slide in sandals. I also have these sandals in tan and they go with EVERYTHING.
If you find yourself stuck between a dupe and the real thing, I would suggest getting the dupe first before the big purchase. Try the dupe out, see how you like it, and how well it fits with your personal style. If you love it and can’t live without it, I say make the purchase. But if not, keep the dupe and save for a piece that is classic and forever.
Have you ever found that one dress you wear on repeat and then can’t get enough of? Well I have found THAT dress! This Leith dress comes in so many different colors and can be worn for so many occassions.
I’ve always been really into trying to create different outfits with all of the pieces in my closet. I don’t know why but I’m not a fan of repeating the same outfit but LOVE repeating certain pieces and styling it in a different way. As a girl who is often on a budget, talk about student loans and rent 😦 I’ve always had to find ways to change up my wardrobe using what I’ve got.
In look one, I decided to just pair the dress with earrings and heels. It’s perfect for date night or even a more causal wedding.
For look two, I paired the dress with a cardigan and blush mules. This simple, casual look is comfy enough for travel and perfect for a day out shopping with your girls.
Finally, for look three I paired this Leith dress with a jean shirt, sequin sneakers and a ball cap. This look is perfect for exploring a new city, cheering at a baseball game or brunch with your babe.
I hope that these looks will help you look at your closet in a different way. Try finding those staple pieces that you have and see how many different ways you can style it. It’s a fun challenge that will keep you loving everything in your closet.
