4 Designer Dupes That’ll Make Your Monday Way Better

Posted July 14, 2014 by in Shopping

Mondays can be such a drag. Especially in the summer. It’s extremely hard to get any work done when the sun is shining bright outside and an ice cream cone is calling your name. Since you can’t play hooky today, here are four designer dupes that’ll make both your wallet, and wardrobe happy!

1. Free People

This crotchet crop top from Free People is extremely versatile — the options are endless!

It would pair well with skinny, boyfriend or flared jeans, trousers, shorts, and skirts of any length. If you’re looking to save, I’ve found a damn good dupe from Go Jane for only $21! Just as much detail for a fraction of the designer price.


2. Giuseppe Zanotti

I’m not sure who I first spotted the Giuseppe Zanotti Gold Leaf Sandals on, but I remember thoroughly enjoying them the second I laid eyes on them. The gold leaves just add something so special to a simple black sandal.

The only thing I had an issue with was the $795 price tag (yikes!), that’s why I’m thankful Bakers Shoes is offering a pretty good option for us gals on a budget.


3. Marc Jacobs

I’ve been crushin’ on these floral canvas oxfords from Marc Jacobs for months! I live for a shoe that makes a statement — one that can carry an entire look without over powering anything else. These shoes will do just that! But what if you don’t want to spend almost $350? No problem. I’ve found an amazing option from the Gap for only $35!


4. Givenchy

The Birkenstock is back and top designers have given these flat sandals a fashion “facelift.” I’m just loving this pair from Givenchy! The addition of a floral print give this style of sandal new life.

I’d personally pair them with a super simple look, allowing the sandals the opportunity to carry the ensemble. As much as I’m gagging over the Givenchy pair, I have to get over it and move right along because I wouldn’t be able to purchase them anyway. I did stumble upon this more budget friendly pair from Steve Madden for $90. Now that’s more my speed!
