Real vs. Steal // Boho Glam Streetstyle

Boho Glam Streetstyle Dupe!

It’s no secret I love Amazon.com! At least half of my wardrobe and house is furnished from Amazon finds! Many times you can even high-quality, designer-inspired dupes that are almost as good as the real thing, for 70% off or more! Today I’m linking items from four of my favorite Amazon stores. These are items I personally own and can recommend and vouch for! My best tip for shopping on Amazon is to carefully read sizing info and materials description to make sure you’re getting exactly what you expect. Many times items like shoes, clothes and bags will be listed in Euro sizes or centimeters, so double check before buying. Also, never fully rely on the stock photos, especially if it looks like the image was pulled from a blog or a designer site. Instead, look at the feed back ratings and customer photos and read a mix of good and bad reviews! Look at the photos in the store’s other listings. Do they compare in quality and style? Or are some images clearly better than others, or photo-shopped to crop out logos or other watermarks? If the image looks too doctored, chances are it’s not a photo of the item for sale! Use common sense and never buy a knock off! If the price is too good to be true it’s probably fake. However, if the item is simply a ‘dupe’ or ‘designer inspired’ with the Amazon store’s own logo, you’re good to go! Lastly, see if your desired size and color choice qualifies for Prime shipping. Many times not all the size and color combos listed are Amazon Prime, but ship directly from the factory overseas. If you’re okay with waiting 2-4 weeks, that’s fine (I have done it many times!). But be aware of where your item is shipping from and allow for transit time to avoid frustration, especially if you ordered an item thinking you would have it in time to wear to a specific event!

Amazon Embroider Sleeve Dress #OOTD

This is a mirror selfie of me wearing the dress listed above. I hemmed about 10″ off the bottom because I’m too short (5’2″) to pull off that tea-length style. As you can see the sleeves are every bit as detailed and voluminous as the Amazon photo. Don’t be afraid to order an item and make it your own! After all, you found something for a great deal, so you can afford to play around with it a bit to create your perfect outfit!

Best Valentino Rockstud Pump Dupes on Amazon!

If you follow my Instastories you would have seen my side-by-side comparison of a pair of original Valentino Rockstud pumps next to these gorgeous dupes! The resemblance is uncanny and I must admit that the dupes are a little bit more comfortable! There’s truly nothing that compares to a new pair of Valentino Rockstuds though — the craftsmanship is unparalleled and the materials so luxurious and dramatic. However, if you do invest in a pair of the real thing you may want a backup pair to wear when you want the ‘look’ without worrying about wearing out or ruining your good ones. It’s always nice to have a backup of something you love ‘just in case!’

      I feel like it’s been in the past 8-10 months that they’ve really stepped up their fashion selection game!
