Spring Free People Dupes from Target

Spring Free People Dupes From Target - get the look for less. http://thegalista.com

Calling all gals on a budget! Have you been swooning over gorgeous Free People pieces, but you just can’t bring yourself to drop huge chunks of change to keep up with the trends?

Don’t get me wrong, I love Free People and would love to be able to splurge on their quality pieces. But that is just not my reality. Just like many of you, I need to stretch my dollar further than that. Instead of missing out, I went on the hunt for things that will allow me to get the same look for less money. Luckily, I found amazing dupes! Even better, I found them all from Target!

If you don’t know a “dupe” is an affordable look alike. The term “dupe” was popularized by the beauty community, but it can apply to anything that is a cheaper version of a similar product.

Target has been crushing the affordable style game this season! Whether it is the Opalhouse line duping Anthropologie, the Hunter X Target collection or these Free People look-alikes Target is sure to keep all you ladies  “balling on a budget”.

Some items I’m about to share are exact style dupes and others are similar but may be slightly off in either color or shape. I’m confident they will all give you the same look for less.

Without further ado, let’s get into the five dupes!

I see all kinds of fashion bloggers posting outfit of the day’s in these gorgeous Free People flats. So I was so incredibly excited when I saw that Target had an affordable option!

Out of all the dupes I have to share with you, these are the most spot on to the original. Though worth mentioning, Free People’s version is genuine leather and currently is offered in 9 colors. So if you’re looking for a pair of shoes that will hold up, these certainly don’t have a reputation for no reason.

The Universal Thread version is offered in an “Ivory” and “Cognac” color. I’ve been lusting over these shoes and I am impatiently waiting for a restock. If they are in your size, R-U-N! You just can’t beat saving $165!

Hats off to Target for allowing us affordable babes to channel our inner fashion blogger in these cutout booties.

This pair of wrap sandals is the second similarity I found in the Universal Thread line from Target. Even though they aren’t a perfect match to the first pair of shoes you can still get the same look with the cheaper version and save $58.01!

A strappy pair of black sandals is such a basic spring essential! Pair them up with a cute sundress or a simple tank and denim jeans. Effortless!

These metallic bow sandals are another spot on dupe! This pair of shoes combines two of the hottest trends right now: metallics and bows!

Such a fun statement shoe for the spring and summer.

Another super fun spring trend is statement earrings. These fun earrings will add such a great pop of color to any basic outfit.

I love that the New Day earrings allow you to achieve the trend for just $10. That way if you aren’t feeling it, you don’t have to regret forking over all your hard earned cash!

Straw bags are having their moment! All the stores are selling them, and all the influencers are carrying them.

Not only can you carry one of these fun totes to the beach but adding one of these fun bags will give a spring flare to any outfit.

Just for fun, I added up the total if you were to buy all five items from each store. The Free People total was $500 exact! And drumroll please… the Target total was $110.95! You could literally buy all five of these items from Target and still not spend as much as you would on the Free People Royale Flats alone.

I hope you guys loved this post today as much as I loved creating it! As you know, I love to shop for less. That is why I love sharing with you guys ideas on how you can still dress cute and trendy while maintaining your budget.

Top 5 Facebook Pages that Post Awesome Deals

5-Facebook-Pages-that-Post-AWESOME-DEALS-The-GalistaHey everyone, welcome back!
Tis the season where we trample complete strangers to get amazing deals which is exactly why I wanted to share with you the Top 5 Facebook Pages that post awesome deals year round. If you would rather skip the crowd and catch some awesome deals all the time keep on reading.

This is totally up my alley cause I just love getting a good deal.

1. Hip2Save

If you take anything from this article, PLEASE go follow this page on Facebook. Oh my goodness. I love her. Especially with the holidays coming up you can find so many great gift options on her page. She shares deals about nearly everything you can imagine including Starbucks, prestige makeup brands, fashion, tech, and food.

Last year she posted about the makeup palettes that were on sale. My friend’s husband saw my post I shared from the Hip2Save page and bought the palette for her. She loved it. So.. if nothing else maybe just make sure your significant others are following this page. You may just thank yourself later for it.

*Alert* That same palette is on sale right now. The Urban Decay Naked Smoky is on sale for $27 on the Urban Decay website. If you have a makeup lover you need to buy for or you wanted to pick up an extra before it’s discontinued definitely jump on that deal now.

She also does live feeds where she highlights the best deals during the holidays. She’s my favorite. You can also visit hip2save.com for even more content.

2. The Krazy Coupon Lady

Some of you may have heard of The Krazy Coupon Lady before. She is best known for focusing on Kroger deals. A lot of people who want to get into extreme couponing normally follow her because she tells you how to stack deals at Kroger and get groceries/ household necessities for really cheap.

Personally, I haven’t been able to catch on to the extreme couponing yet, though I would love to someday be able to figure it out because who likes to pay full price for groceries? Not me. I don’t like to pay full price for anything.

But guys, she also posts really great deals going on at other stores, not just Kroger so definitely check her out.

3.  Passion for Savings

This page also posts some greats deals on things like toys, outerwear, Amazon Prime memberships and more.

The one thing that stands out to me about Passion For Savings is that she has an app that you can download to keep up with the savings. If you do not want your Facebook feed flooded with all the deals and you’d rather just have a separate app to check out, definitely give Passion for Savings a shot.

4. The Penny Hoarder Deals

The Penny Hoarder is a series of Facebook pages each dealing with different ways to save your hard-earned cash! I’m sure you’ve probably guessed what this sister page focuses on. Deals.

From deals on pizza to reduced cost mammograms, you really cannot go wrong following this page.

5. Local Facebook Deal Pages

Last but not least you should definitely check out if your area has any pages that scope out location-based deals for you. I do have a local Facebook page I follow that posts local sales ads where I can go to find the cheapest milk, bread, and eggs.

*CRUCIAL TIP* Always make sure if you want to see notifications from any of these pages on your Facebook feed to adjust your settings. If it is set to “Default” the Facebook algorithm decides what to show you first. However, if you set it to “See First” you won’t miss out on the great deals they post.

Trust me, there is nothing worse than when Facebook shows you hours, days, or weeks after the deal is already dead. Sometimes the deals these sites post are only limited time, you have to jump on them quickly.

What about you guys, do you have any favorite Frugal Facebook pages you think need to be added to the list? Let us know in the comments, please!

Thanks for checking the post out today! Hope you have a great rest of your day.
