As we often get the idea (via social media) that 20-somethings without a college degree are supposed to run around with $4,000 bags and a car worth more than the average house shoved in our faces, it’s easy to think that many of the trends that we see on our favorite influencers are simply unattainable. Spoiler alert: they’re not. Fortunately, that Fendi utility belt that everyone wore this season has dupes-a-many from much more affordable brands.
While Sayge Girl is most definitely a luxury-lovers dream, we want everyone to be able to express themselves with style equally. On the other hand, if you’re on the big-girl-with-a-401K side of the spectrum, then feel free to indulge yourself with our “splurge” section, but for now, I’m staying in “save”.
To be honest, this kind of came out of nowhere along with a slew of other 80’s trends this past season. To be even more honest, we’re crazy about it.
