Buy This - Not That: {September Edition}

The Buy This, Not That post that I wrote back in July seemed to be a hit, (plus it was a lot of fun to research), so I thought I might make this a monthly installment. I friggin' love the challenge of finding a cheaper version of a designer item; it's the ultimate life hack.

So, consider September hacked. Here are my picks for the first month of fall, y'all:

Givenchy Grecian-Inspired Long-Sleeved Dress ($369) // Old Navy Poplin-Crepe Long-Sleeved Dress ($36.94)

H&M Handbag in Black ($39) // Henri Bendel Carlyle Tote Bag ($478)

Kate Spade Delise Flats ($198) // Sam Edelman Becker Leopard Slip-On ($79.90)

Skies Are Blue Checkmate Print Pant ($89) // DSquared Checked Slim Fit Trouser ($729) 

Rebecca Minkoff Snake Chain Bracelet ($148) // Bauble Bar Snake Chain Bracelet ($32)
