Designer v Budget

Over the years as my interest for fashion has grown,  I have noticed more and more that no matter whether you pay high end prices or high street budget prices you can find exactly what you're looking for and it can look and feel amazing on if you're true to yourself and your style. 

With this being said, I have also noticed that as the years go by designer fashion brands are being copied on the high street for much more reasonable and realistic prices to many. This in a way has bridged the gap between high end and high street on so any different levels making fashion accessible to more people no matter what their budget. 

Never shop outside of your budget and always shop around as there are many alternatives available. Either on the highstreet or online you will be able to find some purse friendly options. 

So as I search through the internet (like I do on a daily basis) I have come across a few products which are similar to those designer brands on the market right now. 
I've selected some on trend favourites of mine and linked where to buy both versions. 

 Designer Balenciaga Runners £365

Budget Zara Lace Sneakers £39.99

Designer Chloe Faye Bag £1,190

Budget Yesstyle Flap Bag $35.06 (ships to the UK)

Budget GAP Classic Trench £69.95

Designer Balmain Double Breasted Satin Mini Dress £1,855

Budget Misguided Tuxedo Wrap Dress £35

These are just a few examples that i've come across but there are so many more out there.
I'm thinking of perhaps doing a post like this once in a while, what would you think? 

If you have any other alternatives/examples then please let me know!

I love designer as much as the next person but sometimes I feel like I may have to sell both kidneys to afford them! 
 Certain dupes in particular clothes I don't mind purchasing, shoes and bags not so much as I see them as investment pieces and so spend that little bit more on them!
