Wednesday’s Look for Less

My rule of thumb is to splurge on the classics and save on the trends. A LBD that you will wear to every other fwedding? Splurge. That romper that you want to wear for a bachelorette party? Save. A classic trench for every season?  Splurge. You get the picture! Invest in your classics and get the look for less on some looks to save some cash for your next fashion investment.  Once in a while, however, something is so unique, that you simply have to splurge in fear that you may never come across it again.  This is best to do on vacation, especially since there will be a fun story behind the piece!

What pieces do you think are work splurging on?

Splurge vs. Steal

One of my favorite post on other blogs and in magazine is Splurge vs. Steal features. I love when I can replicate a very expensive designer look on a limited budget. Although, sometimes, nothing can compare to the real thing. Below are my steal picks! xo, Enjoy!

Tis the season for shopping for the new pieces for fall & winter.  We are all on a budget though so when is it time to spurge or steal?  Here are some awesome finds that are totally worth stealing and saving your designer funds for something very special.
