When I spotted Alison Lou‘s emoji chokers on Instagram, I was obsessed–what millennial wouldn’t be?
The only downside was when I went to go buy one and saw the price: $250. I was pretty bummed out. Don’t get me wrong, if I had that money to drop on a ribbon and metal charm, I would, but it’s just not in the cards for me right now.
Luckily, when scrolling through the New Arrivals at Forever 21, I found a knockoff for just $3.90 that satisfied my emoji choker needs. Both of them are pretty much the same idea–can you tell which emoji choker costs more than the other? Click below to find out:
