Dress: c/o Nasty Gal ($25, recommend sizing up)
Belt: Asos ($19)
Slip Skirt: Target ($14)
Heels: Ivanka Trump (old), similar here, here, and here
Bag: Cult Gaia
You guys, I think I found the PERFECT Gucci Belt Dupe. Just to give a little back story, I’ve been obsessing over Gucci’s Double G Belt and the Interlock G belt. But $450 for a belt is very steep. I even checked at TheRealReal and eBay, and I still couldn’t justify the price. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think anything is wrong with splurging on luxury items here and there, but for a belt it’s kinda tough because belts just don’t last long. With time, they will get worn down and eventually they are no longer usable.
Let’s Be Real
To be honest, I didn’t want the belt because it was Gucci. I couldn’t care less about the G’s. I am actually not a fan of buying luxury items that have their name or monogram all over it. I don’t find them appealing at all. If I buy a luxury item, it is because there’s something about that piece that I find worthwhile.
Ok, I’m getting a little side tracked, but the reason why I was into the Gucci belt is because I love the way the buckle was styled. It’s simple yet unique. I love that the buckle makes almost like an overlapped elliptical or I guess technically that’s a venn diagram. It adds just enough statement to your outfit without overdoing it.
Found My Gucci Belt Dupe
One day I was going through Asos (I’m actually on Asos almost everyday #guilty), and decided to browse through the belts and BOOM I found this belt. It was love at first sight and I immediately added it to my checkout bag. It’s exactly what I was looking for! Didn’t even realize it was similar to the Gucci belt until it arrived and I tried it on. I actually like this better because there’s no brand monogram. Whoop whoop! And I only spent $19.
For sizing, I am wearing a size small, but I do wish I got the XS. I worn it on the smallest adjustment, and it was kinda loose in my upper waist. Not significantly loose, but after some time, it didn’t hold up. Still do-able though and most likely I will be wearing it with jeans versus dresses anyways.
Onto The Dress
I received a lot of compliments on this dress when I posted it on Instagram. Thank you! I’m all about polka dots! I recommend sizing up. Nasty Gal’s sizes tend to run small. Let’s just say it for sure doesn’t pass the pizza test (I shared what the pizza test is in this post). I struggled to zip this dress up. It really gets tight at the waist, yet the upper chest area was fine.
Oh, I also recommend getting a slip skirt. Because of the front slip of this skirt, you definitely run the risk of pulling a Britney (that infamous photo of Britney Spears getting out of the car and her who-ha was exposed). In these photos, you may have noticed my slip skirt. Btw, I love it. So comfortable and I barely notice it is there! I wore a size XS.
So there ya go. That’s how I stumbled upon the best belt and it basically was a Gucci belt dupe!

Thank you so much Amy Ann!
LOVE this belt!! It’s such a chic alternative the Gucci version. I haven’t purchased it either because I just can’t get past paying $400+ for a belt! I rarely even wear belts, so it seems like such a waste of money for me. I definitely need this dupe though! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much Mollie! I totally agree!
This belt is the perfect dupe!! I love how you style it with the green dress. So cute!
Thank you Brooke!

I love the styling of the belt as well. The double circles are beautiful. I don’t mind designer logos on accessories (belts, bags, shoes). I just dislike them on clothing.
Thank you so much Cheryl!
I love this green polkadot dress 🙂
Thank you Inna!
This green polka dot dress is so cute on you!
Thank you Amanda!
perfect outfit and to be honest i love the bag~!!!
Thank you Eliza!
I got a similar gucci belt dupe from express earlier this year! I love that it’s just the circles, so it’s not an outright copy, but the look is similar.
Chic on the Cheap
Right?! I think the circles are so much better!
That belt is so cute! I have an interlocking “G” faux Gucci belt I got on Amazon for $15 and you’d never be able to tell the difference. Truly. I wore it into a Gucci store and compared them to see – and they were identical! Sometimes dupes are so worth it. I need a belt like this one. Such a steal!
No way! That sounds like an amazing dupe!
the dress is so cute
Beautiful dress; great color and the belt does look good with the dress. Also, I don’t like Monogrammed luxury items no matter how affordable they are. You have a very lovely blog. I found your blog through the comment you left on Cheryl’s blog (Ohtobeamuse) Happy Monday 😃
Thank you so much! And I love Cheryl’s blog! She always has the most insightful posts!

Aw thank you so much Ashley!
You had me sold at Gucci dupe! I love the actual Gucci belt but am in no position to purchase one right now. This is such a great dupe because it’s similar without trying to be identical. Love it!
Right?!I love that it doesn’t look identical!
I agree! I steer clear of anything that has “label vomit.” 🙂 🙂 🙂 I actually like this belt way better than the Gucci one, it’s so dang cute!

I know this post is about the belt, which is fabulous, but how amazing is this dress on you??? The color is outstanding!
Aw thank you so much Elise!
Such a great dupe!! I”m also loving that dress- you look great in green!
Thank you so much Kelsey!
I’m in love with this green polka dot dress- so cute!! And I love finding a good dupe- I love the Gucci belts on other people but I honestly never wear belts so could never shell out that kind of cash.
Thank you so much Kristina! I know it’s so hard to splurge that much on a belt!
This is such a great dupe and makes just as much of a statement! Love it!
Thank you Jessica!
