Are budget designer dupes worth it? High end looks at high street prices

Of course the answer to the question is relative. Where have you bought it from? How good of a dupe is it? If it wasn't a dupe, would you buy it just because you liked it anyway? Dupe culture has risen in the past few years, with designer good being the way forward, and the national living wage not quite up to speed. I myself could never afford to splash hundreds or thousands on a piece of clothing, so I also head to the interwebs to see what I can find.

A prime example is this dress. Beautiful in it's own right. It has sat in my wardrobe for over a year for the fear it being far too OTT for drinks at the pub. I'm past that now, since putting it on twice in a week and falling back in love with it like I did the minute I opened it. It's a Zimmermann dupe, the Zimmermann's of which are not cheap. This dress is a near exact copy and to refer back to the earlier questions, yes I would have bought it even if I didn't know what it was meant to be. The dress, to me, is fabulous quality too, so a more premium dupe if you were. I really want to do a full post on where I pick out these dresses etc, so for now I shall keep it under wraps (but my dms are always open for secret telling). 

I paired the dress the first time with a pair of (duped may I add) Chanel looking mules, the ones with the pearl on the heel. For this summery day you see before you, a pair of Primark's submission for the black strappy heel we're seeing everywhere. Stick on a pearl hair clip and grab your personalised Abbott Lyon (gifted) bag and you'll feel 100 quid, or at least I did.
