Normally when it comes to things like this I never like the cheaper version but you have pulled this off so well! I love this post. And all the cheaper items are just as nice.
So so so so so so great!

All I can say is WOW!!! This post is amazing. You have not only selected some of fall's hottest looks but you've really done quite a bit of research to nail down some more affordable options.
I will definitely be buying some of these items, especially the jackets! My favorite was your re-creation of the D&G outfit. Bravo, darling!

Great outfits, they look almost the same!

Love the Givenchy one.

Very fun. The Alexander McQueen look is probably my favorite. I would like a band jacket like that!
