What do you think?  Would you skimp or splurge?
Oh, and what do you think of my new "Skimp or Splurge" banner?

Happy Wednesday y'all!
I can't wait to share with you where I'll be heading on Friday!
More on that tomorrow! :)


  1. I love both options but I would probably go with the second one:)
    Great post,sweetie

    Ps: I am hosting a sweet GIVEAWAY today :) Hope you will join in :)!!!

  2. I love the skimp shirt dress WAY more than the splurge! I won't lie though, I adore the splurge ring!

    P.S. I was in JCrew this weekend and saw the black check shirt on last weeks skimp or splurge and it made me think of you! Not to mention I had the exact same shirt on in grey!

  3. I love the new baner! I would have to say I'd splurge but those are all pieces I would wear lots and lots of ways.

  4. I like the skimp dress better too! I love this post! And the banner is cute too.

  5. Love the banner! And I would definitely skimp on this look...still looks great and saves almost $300!

  6. Love those knot earrings! And the banner's cute!

  7. Your dress is cuter...and the shoes are almost the same! Well done!

  8. Mmmm. Love those cuff bracelets. This is great - I love the rings too. I've always wanted a Daytime Invisiblity Ring.
    Great banner too!
