TikTok is the ultimate spot for viral life hacks. With over 88 billion views, under the lifehack hashtag in the app, it seems to be the go-to place for girls to stay in the loop and on top of the trends.
BADDIE ON A BUDGET ?!
The latest hack sweeping the innanet comes from the gworlz who are saving their coint and buying high-end designer replicas.
If you spent some time on TikTok you have seen users showing off their designer finds from sites like DHGate, Aliexpress, and more. The Tiktok girls have found an affordable way to come through with the latest drip.
User @thebarbieari0 shares videos of her unboxing her replica finds. One video that currently has 3.3 million views shows several Gucci, Jordan, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton items.
“When they think ur rich but it’s all from DH gate,” they wrote in their video, which was posted in August 2022.
Another video displayed a lady unboxing a DHGate Christian Dior replica which was purchased for $60. The actual price of the bag goes for $3350.00 on the fashion label site.
DRIP OR DROWN ?!

There was a point in time when being caught with a “knockoff”, “fake”, or “replica” was socially unacceptable and able to ruin someone’s fashion credibility. Now, this idea is not as shameful as it was years ago.
Why are they doing it ?! Well, it seems the girls are being financially responsible.
Today, designer replicas are becoming more acceptable amongst generation Z. There are thousands of youtube hauls and TikTok trends that show a twentysomething showing off their luxury knockoffs purchased at a 90% difference then the retail price.
Others believe you cannot tell the difference and the quality is just as good as the authentic item.
HACK OR WACK ?!
The DhGate craze has some of the world in frenzy. While some have no shame in their game, others are asking “are you not embarrassed?”
Reactions from Twitter users show a different side of this inexpensive life hack.
Idk I just can’t get with the dhgate tiktok girlies
