"It was worth the trouble to get this designer dupe." 11 things the Mamamia team bought this month.

November is a big month for those that love to shop. For one, Christmas is right around the corner so practically everyone is shopping up a storm for the people in their life. And two, it’s the month where nearly every retailer in the country takes part in Black Friday and Cyber Monday, arguably the two biggest sales of the year.

It’s huge, and frankly, my poor phone is tired of the 500+ messages I’ve received in the last week from stores telling me about their sales IN BIG CAPITAL LETTERS. (My credit card is also crying out for help, pleading for me to stop buying things just because it’s 50 per cent off, but moving on.)

Here at Mamamia, we enjoy a good sale, especially when the thing we’ve been eyeing for months is suddenly discounted. So, as I do every month, I asked the team to share with me what they bought in November, and here’s what they had to say.

MESHKI Jemima Straight Leg Pants in Charcoal, $129.

“Sooooo I blame The Crown for this purchase and let me tell you why. When I saw Elizabeth Debicki rock the famous grey Princess Diana suit, I just knew I needed something similar in my wardrobe immediately. These pants are not only the perfect colour, they’re the perfect length and fit too.” - Basmah Qazi, Senior Lifestyle Writer.

PĀMU Roimata Earrings, $90.

“I recently got my hands on these beautiful earrings from PĀMU. They are the perfect dupe for the ever-so-famous and ever-so-expensive Bottega Veneta Gold Drop Earrings. They’re incredible quality. PĀMU is a Māori owned and operated business that recently launched in Australia, which I love. 10/10!” - Olivia James, Social Producer.

Persol PO3166S Calligrapher Polarized 25/57, $424.

"I'm one of those people that wear sunnies in all weather, but they MUST be comfortable. These look right on my small head, are lightweight, and stay on." - Nicole Madigan, Senior Writer.

MESHKI Anysa Satin Strapless Top in Ivory, $109.

“I recently got this top from MESHKI. As the saying goes “nice top with some jeans”, so I plan to style this piece exactly like that. Also gotta love some satiny material.” - Isabella Ross, Senior News Writer.

Billini Gordy Slides, $79.95.

“Ok listen. I have always wanted the famous Hermes slides, however, at no point in my life have I ever had an Hermes budget. So when Billini released their own version, I HAD to get it. I did have to pre-order it because of how quickly they sold out, but it was worth the trouble.” - Basmah Qazi, Senior Lifestyle Writer.

Under Armour Ottoman Fleece Novelty Silo, $150.

"I'm OBSESSED with this cropped pullover from Under Armour. It's the comfiest sweatshirt to pull over when I'm working out or just lounging at home, and the ribbed material is beautifully soft and lightweight. It also has a drawstring at the side to cinch it in at the waist. Love!" - Erin Docherty, Beauty & Health Editor.

Free People Ziggy Denim Overall, $164.28.

“I have wanted a pair of long overalls for as long as I can remember. Seriously. Free People has always been my gold standard, and the other week I ordered a pair via Revolve and I’m so so so thrilled. They’re a great fit, the colour of denim is exactly what I wanted and they’re not too long on the legs.” - Isabella Ross, Senior News Writer.


Ray-Ban RB3025 Aviator Classic, $222.

“With summer well and truly here, I was in desperate need of some new sunglasses, and these ones by Ray-Ban ticked all the boxes. Not only is it a classic style, so it’ll never not be on trend, but the gold frames match all the gold jewellery I wear, and that’s really important to me.” - Basmah Qazi, Senior Lifestyle Writer. 


The Small Messenger Bag by MAISON de SABRE, $201.75.


“I got this bag for my best friend, and it is his most favourite bag ever. It fits all the essentials (including our massive iPhones) and it is SO cute. He uses it to travel, for work and he's even taken it to a festival (it's made from full-grain leather so it is really easy to clean). It's so luxe and really worth the money (plus it’s 25 per cent off).” - Shannen Findlay, Content Producer.


Monday Swimwear Clovelly One Piece, $195.

“Monday Swimwear makes THE BEST bikinis and one pieces and I know my sister has been eyeing them off for ages. So grabbing her this gorgeous black and white one while the whole site is having a sale.” - Charlie Begg, Morning Editor.

Toby Heart Ginger One Shoulder Mini Dress, $97.50.

"I love a mini party dress and this one is perfect in every way. Fitted but not too tight, mini but not too short and the perfect colour for my olive complexion. Love." - Nicole Madigan, Senior Writer.
