Looking for something trendy that won’t decimate your wallet in the process? Whether it’s furniture, fashion, or cosmetics, here are a few inexpensive alternatives to pricey products.
While not identical, these two pieces of furniture both capture the charm of the ’50s and ’60s interior design with a modern twist and a big price difference (as well as a cheerful splash of green.)
NARS’ pressed powder blush is something of a makeup cult classic, but at $30, it’s a steep price to pay for popularity. Milani’s Baked Blush comes in at around $7, making it a much more affordable alternative that many swear is virtually identical.
It goes without saying that just shy of $900 is a lot to pay for a handbag, but GUESS’ alternative to Prada’s iconic purse is less astronomical $78. You can also find a similar bag at Target for $18.
Target’s faux plant offerings aren’t far off from the likes of more expensive places like Pottery Barn, and these two trees are evidence. Depending on the size you’re looking for (one being slightly larger and one being slightly smaller than Pottery Barn’s) you could be looking at a plant six times cheaper.
Despite their striking similarities, these two strappy white heels are vastly different in price– almost $395 and $35, respectively.
Besides being much more affordable, the latter print features a variety of different sizes to choose from, with the largest still coming in at around half the price of Uttermost’s wall art.
