Splurge vs. Steal: Tweed and Leather

Splurge vs. Steal: Tweed and Leather
I love the unexpected combination of fabrics, like silk and knit,or denim and laceor tweed and leather. However, because tweed and leather are very luxurious fabrics, the price tends to go up, like with this classic Milly shift dress. But for those of you who don’t have a spare $375 (ahem, me), you can get a similar look for less with this version by Kirna Zabete for Target. Wear your tweed/leather number with black tights and ankle booties for cocktails, or layer the dress with a white blouse for the office. What do you think? Are you looking to splurge or steal a tweed and leather dress this season?

Splurge vs. Steal: Tortoise Watch

splurge vs. steal: tortoise watch
Michael Kors makes the best watches. I have one in silver and one in rosegold, but I’ve had my eye on this tortoise shell watch on the left for a while now. This gorgeous Michael Kors watch is $225. Unfortunately, since the real world just creeped up on me, this watch isn’t in the budget right now, so I went searching for a similar, less pricey option. You are welcome, readers… On the right you have an Anne Klein version, which is just $65! I will never stop lusting over Michael Kors watches, but a cheaper option is always welcome.

Splurge vs. Steal

These claw bracelets have slightly different gold tones, but the major difference between them is a price of about $900! Pause for a moment to take that in, because my mind is still reeling… The unbelievably gorgeous piece on the left, which is a cuff I have been lusting over for years now since I first saw it in her showroom, is a Pamela Love creation which carries the price tag of a mere $920.00! On the right is a version made by ASOS, which retails for just over $20.00. Seems like an obvious choice, no?

P.S. I’d like to wish the most amazing Mom in the world a wonderful Mother’s Day! I miss you and love you very much. XO
