High Street does Catwalk (Dupes)

Hi Fashionista's, 

I hope you have all had a lovely week? I am all over the place with the days, because of the Bank Holiday, so it was a welcome surprise this morning when I remembered it was Friday! 

I am in full AW12 shopping mood now, this week I have been very naughty (or very good if you think like me!) and have been doing a lot of shopping! I will be going through lots of these in outfit posts really soon, as I really feel a new sense of excitement for styling and putting looks together! Whenever the new season comes  along I always need to buy my first few pieces and it kick starts my creative juices, is this just me? 

Anyway in the midst of all my shopping this week I have found some great dupes on the High Street of some of the key looks for AW12. 

     Dupe- Topshop £ 36
   Original- Isabel Marant 
I absolutely loved the entire Isabel Marant AW12 collection, the cowgirl edge mixed with fab maroons and fringing. So I have been on the look out for similar pieces and this shirt is perfect! And it will look good with skirts, leather trousers, jeans, basically everything!  

               Dupe- Esther Boutique 55 euros
   Original- Christoper Kane
Without doubt Esther Boutique is one of my new favourite fashion finds. They have have most wonderful selection of pieces that you literally can not narrow down, you just want it all! It was introduced to them my by the fab Audrey Leighton from Frassy and I am hooked! This purple jumper will be a must for the cold winter months and if it looks like a Christopher Kane piece then sign me up! 

       Dupe- Topshop £40
 Original- Erdem 
I am big fan of neon, I am quite sad to be putting it away for the winter months, so when I saw Erdem's collection back in February I was very excited to see that it was still going to be making an appearance this Autumn. This skirt is amazing and I love the lace finish too, it will be fab for all the parties coming up over the next few months and for £40 it is a steal!

I love seeing what designs the High Street create for the new season, it is one of the reasons I love fashion so much as it allows everyone to be involved and pick out what trends and styles from the catwalk they want to wear. These are just a few, there are loads more of really good dupes out there, so get your eyes and cash cards on the look out! 

Hope you all have great weekends planned? I am heading out for drinks tonight with some friends, so that will be good and probably drunken! Then, it's head down as I have got a busy weekend of blog stuff ahead! 

Happy Weekend!
