Man, we're getting popular with these requests for Restoration Hardware duplicates! Unfortunately, as we mentioned earlier this week when we tried to find the Emelia Sleigh Bed for less, there aren't a lot of truly great dupes out there for R.H. Baby & Child furniture as of yet. With that in mind, in terms of style alone, #9 is probably closest, and #10 is closest in terms of the Kenwood's finish color. The others are fairly similar, and most are available in a wide range of stains and colors. You can always, of course, buy a crib and then re-paint or re-finish it yourself. Hope one of these is just right for your wee bairn, Jason - check 'em out after the jump!


And, of course, if any readers know of a good Kenwood crib dupe for less, please let us know in the comments!

I have been looking everywhere for a feminine pine finished full sized bed for my daughter and of course the only place I have found it was as restoration hardware! Please help me find a less expensive alternative. Thank you! Liz"


$1500 for a kid's bed is a LOT of cash, Liz, no wonder you're hoping for a cheaper alternative! Unfortunately, this one was a huge challenge: There are lots of dupes of regular R.H. furniture and plenty of alternatives to R.H. Baby & Child bedding, but the market doesn't quite seem to have caught up to R.H. Baby & Child's furniture line. Nevertheless, we found a few options. Many of the ones pictured are available in multiple finishes, or you could easily have them painted or re-stained for a small fee (or do it yourself). Check out our picks after the jump, and let us know what you think!


Calling all readers! Any of YOU know of a decently priced dupe for this bed? Let us know in the comments!

Hi Katie! We found a video of an interview Chris Evert did with Venus Williams, where we think she's wearing the necklace you're talking about - but, unfortunately, there are no closeups of the necklace itself. So, we tried to find a wide variety of fairly inexpensive rose pendants with cz, marcasite & other gems for you. Hope that helps....Check 'em out after the jump!

Erin, this was surprisingly hard! There are, of course, a TON of black-and-white printed dresses out there, but we couldn't find something with the same print or the colorblocking seams. But we did track down 8 frocks with similar elements, and hopefully one of them will make you look and feel like a million bucks (but cost a lot less, of course!) Check out our picks after the jump!

It may be cute, but that's not a good value. Can you help me find something similar? Thank you!!! Love, Kellie"


Aw, congrats on your first baby, Kellie! And... $226 for 3 pieces? Yeesh! Lucky for you, that chocolate brown-and-pink combo is popular right now, so we found five similar sets, all $200 or less, that include WAY more pieces.

Shirley H. wrote: "Dear Bargainist, Hi! My name is Shirley, and I'm 22. I'm looking for an edgy but sweet floral dress for daytime wear. I was window shopping on net-a-porter and found this amazing Preen dress: http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/112210. The tight fit makes it a bit dressier than what I'm looking for, but it has all the elements I like: the flowers are small and subtle (I'm picky about my florals), it would show off my waist, it's mini in length, and it has unique details (I love the double shoulder strap, the exposed zipper in the back, and the asymmetric hem). Unfortunately, it's $410, which is a *little* out of my budget range. I'm looking for something under $50. I've done my fair share of online shopping, but I love it when other people find things for me! Do you think you could help me out? If it helps, I'm 5'3 and pretty slender. Thanks! Shirley"


$410? For a flowered cotton dress? Dang, those designers just looove trying to pull a fast one on fashionistas, don't they? Anyhow, Shirley, most of the $50-or-less subtly flowered dresses we found don't have much of a tough girl edge, but that's pretty easy to add with accessories & shoes.

I want to save money for going out that night, so I'm wondering if you could find two dresses, each under $50 (under $30 would be even better, but $50 is my limit per dress). I've been thinking something that's totally glam and sparkles are a plus, but not required. Can you help a poor girl (literally) out?"

The boot is called Tatiana, by Pour La Victoire, in distressed brown leather (not suede). It is exactly what I'm looking for: cowboy boot style, 2-2 1/2" heel, short shaft, distressed leather in grey or brown and pull-on. 6pm has exactly one...in a size 10B. I need an 8 1/2 or 9B.
