HIGH VS. LOW IS IT WORTH IT? (SPOILER ALERT – MOST TIMES IT JUST MAY BE ) I SHARE A FEW OF MY DUPES & GIVEAWAY!!!

Hello Lovlies,

If your new – Welcome and if you’re a friend already I am happy you stopped by.  Things are so crazy and uncertain right now I took a little breather but am back doing what I love.  Sharing what I use, want, love, and need with you all.  Giving honest real reviews.  Sometimes we cant go all Bougie all the time but you know I love to mix my high end and low-end pieces – Like my favorite mixing my target rolling stones T-shirt with Dior boots and LV handbag.  So below I am doing some shopping with and for you.  Some high some low and see where we can save or if you want the lux piece no matter what.  Let’s talk about jewelry.

I’m in love with Tiffany – I mean who isn’t – Mike bought me a circle in circle diamond necklace 20 years ago that is still classic and I wear it almost every day – a few years back they introduced their HardWear line and I’m obsessed.  However I don’t think it is in the cards so I have been searching for a look-alike a bit more affordable – but Mike if your listening.  I still want Tiffany and oh yeah the Cartier watch too – LOL loriannmd, tiffany, tiffany hardwear, gold, chain necklace,

Now I love a designer but this one takes the cake and the less expensive version is more comfortable to me – I have had both and now only get the Steve Madden version.

 

 

$695.00 vs $65.00  I’ll let you be the judge………

Let’s start with Sunglasses.  A little secret of mine – I’m Obsessed with shades!  High / low I don’t care.  Mike and I usually treat ourselves to a new pair when at the airport shopping before a vacay or preflight.  Nothing like some designer shades to set the tone for the islands….. I recently bought the new LV – La Grande Bellezza shades and I ADORE them – oversized – chic just how I like my sunnies.  steve madden, gucci loafers, gucci dupe, neiman marcus, ben amun, short link chain. gold necklace, shopping high low, dupe, lori tauraso, dry run ranch, the dc bloggers, luxury shopping, spring shopping, ,louis vuitton, sunnies, sunglasses, saks, summer 2020, nyfw2020, shopping, dupe, amazon dupe, lori tauraso, blank slate, urablankslate, luxury shopping, dmv blog, typsons galleria, tysons corner, rakuten, honey coupons, youtube dupes,

However, they are $495.00 (ouch – but I had saved in-store coupons and gift cards for the purchase ) just so you know.  It got me thinking of some great dupes that I have seen on Amazon and I went ahead and purchased a few pairs. Here they all are – can you tell which is the LV and which is the dupe? Close right?  Comment below and on my Instagram and FB posts to be eligible to win.  The US only at this time.  I thought this would be fun to do during all this madness and quarantine stuff.    FYI – I will be doing Giveaways several times in the next few weeks to share the love and keep a positive spin going out there.

The pair I’m wearing below is really close to YSL, Gucci, and Celine Shades….. What do you think?  Now, of course, they are NOT polarized or prescription but I’m digging them tons.  I got two pairs for under $12.oo ” shut the front door”! amazon dupe, ysl, steve madden, gucci loafers, gucci dupe, neiman marcus, ben amun, short link chain. gold necklace, shopping high low, dupe, lori tauraso, dry run ranch, the dc bloggers, luxury shopping, spring shopping, ,summer 2020, corona 2020 , miamispa, loriannmd, blankslateblog, antiagewithme, travel and leisure, marriott bonvoy, travel blogger, the dc bloggers, selfcare, spa week, maimi spa month, miami wellness club, dc magazine, modern luxury magazine, sass magazine frederick, maryland bloggers, maxines miami, colins ave. pool, tropicale ,amazon dupe, celine sunglasses, louis vuitton sunglasses, runway, shopping,Amazon,

Now for a big one and I am so torn even though they are a dupe – the Fendi Plattform slides match my new bag???????  Ahhhhhhh so I’m keeping both and ordered black from Amazon too.

      Right couldn’t agree more – the black platform flip flops – are in pink in the article but just got in black from amazon and just like Steve Madden ones I used to have and at 5’3 I’ll take the 2 1’2 inches – thanks so much for the comment – doing more giveaways during this “self-isolation”

      I know I adore them – wondering why I have spent so much over years – esp great for traveling….. thanks for the comment!
