Get the look for less: Chanel, Cult Gaia, Gucci & Valentino

It’s no secret that us millenials love to splash the cash and scrolling through my instagram feeds it seems more and more people are picking up the latest designer drops and flashing their Gucci for the whole world to see. If you can comfortably afford this lifestyle then kudos to you and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t the slightest bit jealous. At the moment I am only left with about £50 disposable income a month so the dream of owning a Chloe Faye slips further and further away with every month that passes.

Dupe’s are very much like marmite – you either love them or hate them. I myself love the fact the high street are offering more and more high end dupes allowing us to get the look for less. Today I thought I would share with you 10 of my current favourite high-street dupes, many of which have already made their way into my current wardrobe.
