I was skimming through a magazine yesterday and saw a page called
"splurging and skimping" and I found myself asking:
"Since when was $250 for a pair of shoes considered skimping???"
Sooo I decided to put together two different versions of the same outfit.
The first is the expensive (well, expensive in my book) version and the second
version is the budget friendly version for all of us back here on planet earth!
And they are of course ready for fall :)
Here is the first:
1. Anthropologie Terrace House Jacket $128
2. J. Crew Beaming Blossom Earrings $95
4. Sense of Fashion Braided Hoops Leather Bracelet $75
5. Current/Elliott The Roller low-rise cropped jeans $220
6. Pour La Victoire Avalon $200
Total = $807 (YIKES!!!)
And here is the budget friendly option:
Total = $132.86 (woop! woop!)
Thats a savings of $674.14!!
Ok, now the details on the budget outfit...
I kept the color scheme the same, but added a a bit of color with the blue blouse.
And if you'll notice, even though the jacket is now "leather" there's still a ruffle
on the collar! Cute, huh?! I kept the earrings as studs and in the flower category and
the bangle adds that bit of sparkle on your wrist! And the shoes are nearly identical!
The jeans can be rolled up to look like the splurge jeans, too!
So, what do you think? Would you splurge or skimp?
