Say you want a Saint Laurent leather jacket, but you’re only willing to buy it on sale. Shopping site Polyvore lets you sign up for alerts that let you know when the price has dropped — though with an item so universally beloved, it’s pretty unlikely that you’ll ever get a great deal. The site just released data reporting which pieces women across America are tracking obsessively but refusing to buy at full price. Because we like to help, we picked ten of the best and found similar items at lower price points. Click through the slideshow for all the data, and all the deals.
The ‘It’-Girl Bucket Bag
The Mansur Gavriel bucket bag is everywhere by now, but there’s still a long waiting list. Don’t feel like waiting? Try Kelsi Dagger’s blue bag, or an Über-soft bucket bag from Baggu in black or caramel.
The Ring Everyone’s Boss Has
At over $4,000, this Eva Fehren ring is beautiful — but so expensive! If you love the style, Baublebar has a very similar one for $32, or if you want one that’s gold-plated with pavé diamonds, try the KC Signatures version.
The Strappy Sandal of the Summer
The strappy crisscross sandal is a definite stunner this summer. Céline’s come in beautiful bright tones, but if you’re not up for spending so much on this trend, Via Spiga has similar sandals in suede at $255, and Proenza Schouler’s black nylon sandals are $379.
The Carryall Doctor Bag
It’s hard to find a bag that’s sturdy and can hold all your stuff — which is why the Balenciaga doctor bag is amazing. For slightly more budget-friendly options, Milly has a soft gray leather bag at $425 and Zara’s velvet lock bag is only $119.
The Pumps You’ll Wear With Everything
Gianvito Rossi’s jewel-toned suede pumps are one of the best closet staples of all time. The real deal is $670, so for similar alternatives at a lower price, try these suede options from Asos and L’Autre Chose.
The Itsy-Bitsy Mini Bag
It’s not very practical, but Fendi’s mini bag is the epitome of chic at $3,100. For a similar high-quality option, Alexander Wang’s mini bag costs $825; for less of a financial commitment, Zara’s mini bag is only $60.
The Minimalist Sneaker
The sneaker moment will never die! Isabel Marant’s sneakers are still in the $400 range and won’t go on sale anytime soon, so look for K-Swiss’s revamped sneakers or the classic Adidas Stan Smith.
The Get-You-Through-Winter Over-The-Knee Boots
Though it’s summer at the moment, now’s the time to prepare by ordering the boots you’ll need. These Stuart Weitzman 50/50 boots are comfortable and offer great fit potential around the calf. For a less expensive alternative, try Marc by Marc Jacobs’s leather and back-stretch boot at $200 or Mint Velvet’s suede version at $310.
The Essential Leather Jacket
Buying a leather jacket is a serious — and expensive — decision. The fan favorite is always Saint Laurent’s moto biker, but it’ll cost you about $5,000 (ouch). For quality authentic leather for under $1,000, try Veda’s belted jacket or Madewell’s buttery washed-leather option.
The Blogger-Friendly Mirrored Sunglasses
Is there a style blogger in existence who hasn’t photographed herself in mirrored sunglasses? Celebrities like these $540 Victoria Beckham aviators, but for similar options try Ray-Ban’s classic style or a cheap pair from Lulu’s.
