Splurge vs. Steal – Closet Edition

Let’s be real for a second. Who doesn’t want designer fashion, thousand dollar handbags, real Italian shoes…I’m a sucker for it. But every once in a while when I don’t feel like splurging on an item, finding something almost exactly similar for three times less is the best feeling. There are times to splurge and there are times to save. 

With spring starting to make an appearance, I’ve been shopping for new trends to keep my wardrobe fresh & new, all while staying on budget since we are taking a big European vacation in a couple of months. I was so surprised at the almost identical styles I was finding for 3-4 times less the cost! For example, this Clare V clutch is trending right now because of the huge spring Shopbop sale, but there’s an almost identical one at Nordstrom right now for only $35! Same goes for these Jeffrey Campbell booties, which are around $180. You can find a super similar pair at Target right now for under $40 AND they are very comfortable…..trust me, I wear them A LOT.

Below I’ve linked the splurge vs steal links for all the items pictured in this post so that you can still stay trendy and fashionable for spring without spending a ton of money. I know it’s hard, but you can do it!
