I’m not sure there’s anything in the world that I love more than a great dupe or a brilliant bargain. (Well, apart from lipsticks, and blushers…new clothes are always a mood changer, chocolate and Indian takeaways are a bit life changing… Sorry sorry, I digress.) Which is why I was over the bloody moon – for any non South East Londoners/people who don’t quite understand the common, cockney rough lingo, I was overjoyed 🙂 – with a certain little item that I spied in H&M that looked a liiiittle bit like an Acne number I spotted on one of my favourite – if not my all time fave – bloggers. Kenza Zouiten. Pictured below in a coat that I’ve longed for, for a very long time. But just haven’t got round to selling my house, car, and brother to afford it.
Slight exaggeration. But for £1900, I’m sticking with my homegirl, the high street!
Onto Kenza – who is infinitely more beautiful and photogenic than I’ll ever be, so please excuse that obvious fact/be brainwashed into thinking we’re the same person – and that Acne Velocite coat.
And here is, erm… my coat. Which I know that put next to the original, is maybe not as similiar as I thought – a by product of my rose tinted “I love H&M”/this will transform me into Kenza, glasses. But hey, bar the extra fluffiness of the Acne coat, I think it’s pretty close right?
For £39.00, you cannot go wrong. Unless you’re one of those Made In Chelsea types that come out of the womb dressed in Balenciaga. In which case, I hate you good for you, but for the rest of us? This little H&M number will fill my Velocite cravings for the time being.
So, are there any other high end dupes from my second favourite thing in the world, the high street – nothing tops nutella in my eyes – that I need to know about? I’m all ears!
Hope you enjoyed this post. As always, thank you so much for reading!
When I saw this I was screamed to my boyf "this is exactly like the Acne coat!!!" to which he was very confused and perplexed lol (men!). Looks amazing on you! I tried it on in h&m but ended up getting soemthing similar from Mango in the end! xx
Ha, I totally get this, my boyfriend was just stunned that a brand would call itself Acne…couldn't care less about the coat. Thanks for commenting lovely 🙂
Love this coat. Looks so practical and warm but fashionable – we like these kinds of items!!
It's SO warm Katie, that's what I love most about it (granny at heart)
