Ok so I thought I would try out doing a weekly series. What do ya think?? The theme of this series will be – C’s Dupe Item Of The Week.
What the heck does this mean?? Well I am all about affordability over here at Courts xoxo. Yes we would all love the be able to buy everything our heart desires but real life just ain’t like that. Am I right?! I have lost count how many times I have been wearing something that looks expensive or looks like the real deal but isn’t and I get people saying “Oh I love that, is it Gucci” or something of the like. Which just proves you don’t always have to spend a lot to get the same look.
Now I’m not saying I don’t ever splurge or get the real version of something because I do but I have learnt with time and age that more times than not you can create a simply fabulous look by mixing expensive with inexpensive items. In your closet I believe there are a few key pieces you should go all out on, they will form the back bones to your whole closet and a lot of your looks (another post for another day). Then you can fill in all the gaps with smaller, less expensive items. By combining the two this creates some phenomenal looks. Same goes for your home decor items!
So with that being said I thought it would be a fun idea to pick an item per week as a feature, for example a pair of Valentino shoes and then a roundup or similar or duplication shoes that look the same or similar for a fraction of the price. Or maybe it’s a very pricey piece of artwork for your house you’ve been wanting to showcase on your walls.
I always get so excited when I find an item that looks the same or serves the same purpose as something I have been lusting after but just couldn’t afford. It makes me feel good and confident when stepping out and also pretty damn pleased with myself when I know I haven’t cleared out my life savings to get it!!
Anyway babes, I really hope you enjoy this weekly series which I will be posting on Monday’s. I will be kicking it off with the first item next week….. Stay tuned!
