7 dupes

1. Anthropologie monogram mug vs. Threshold (Target) monogram mug

This isn’t a huge difference (I thought the Anthro mug was like $20…), but the Target dupe is cheaper and easier to get your hands on.

2. Patagonia pullover vs Old Navy pullover

I actually have both versions… my Patagonia is like 2 years old and the Old Navy version I just got! Both are super soft, cozy and perfect for fall/winter wear.

3. Kendra Scott Rayne necklace vs Charming Charlie stone and tassel necklace

Charming Charlie has TONS of pieces that won’t make your wallet weep, the one pictured here isn’t the one I have linked, but it’s super similar! Here is another one that’s similar.

4. J. Crew Excursion vest vs Kohls Croft & Barrow vest

I have the Excursion vest in herringbone from J. Crew Factory, it was cheaper than the regular one from J. Crew, but this one from Kohl’s is such a buy! I don’t know if the sale is still going on, but Old Navy has pretty much the same vest going for $15!

5. Rose gold Beats® vs iFetta rose gold headphones

Okay so ever since I posted these Beats as my MLO I’ve gotten some questions about a more affordable version (I got mine with my new computer, I could never drop $300 for headphones…) so I found these on Amazon! I love that they’re a dead ringer for the Beats and better price point.

6. Dermalogica Hydrating Moisturizer vs Aveeno Daily Moisturizer

Dermalogica will always be my favorite and my go to, but holy crap is it expensive.  The Aveeno moisturizer is a whole lot cheaper and gets the job done.

7. Benefit Roller Lash mascara vs Covergirl LashBlast Clump Crusher mascara

Related:  2017 California Trip

I love the Benefit mascara because my lashes are stubbornly straight and the brush is curved and the formula lasted for hours. I recently tried the Covergirl one because the Benefit one was pricy. It’s basically the same! LOVE.


8. Julep Cushion Concealer vs Neutrogena blemish concealer (c/o)

I just got this concealer in the mail and LOVE it! I still love the Julep concealer, but this one is great also and is soooo much cheaper.
