Splurge vs. Steal – FALL EDITION

Everybody loves a good deal right?!

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love splurging every once in a while on a great designer bag or pair of shoes that will last me forever. 

BUT sometimes there are pieces that you just want for a season without spending a pretty penny. 

Now a days, there are so many great look-a-likes for high end designer pieces that it’s easy and affordable to create a chic stylish look for less. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite “dupes” for the fall season, so I thought I would share them with you!

1.) A beautiful Burberry scarf is a great splurge that will last you a lifetime. It’s a classic plaid scarf that stays on trend every year so if you are wanting to take the plunge, I would say do it. (I love my Burberry scarfs!) Not wanting to splurge this time around? There are plenty of other options and similar styles under $50. I’m loving this onethis one, and this one

2.) Every year, I like to add a classic peacoat to my closet. Last year I got this one for under $40 and IT’S BACK this year! It’s a great “style for a steal” option if you don’t want to spend that much money on a peacoat this season. It’s the perfect length, keeps you warm and the camel color is great for fall. (It runs small, so size up!)

3.) Over the knee boots – you need at least one pair in your closet. These SW ones have been on my wishlist for some time now (one day!) but for now, these super similar ones are under $40 and are amazing! I have them in the dark grey and just ordered them in the taupe color. (I sized up 1/2 a size)

4.) A good fall lip – One of my favorite things about fall is adding a berry red lip with all the fall colors in my wardrobe. It’s the perfect way to finish the look. You know I love my Charlotte Tilbury lip colors (“Red Carpet Red” is a great berry color for fall), but if you don’t want to splurge on a lipstick for over $30, Rimmel 107 is a great drugstore berry red option for under $6!

5.) Everyone needs a classic sparkle stud earring for everyday wear. These ones are my GO-TO everyday earrings (besides my pearls) that I wear all the time! They are such a steal for only $19 and great for those days when you don’t want to worry about your accessories but still want to add some sparkle to your look.

6.) This Chloé bag is A-MAZING but it’s over $1500. I recently got this genuine leather look-a-like one in the taupe color and it doesn’t disappoint! It looks almost identical! Sometimes a girl needs a good dupe – this is mine.

7.) These mule loafers might be my favorite steal of the season! If you buy one pair of shoes for a steal these next couple of months, make them these. They are identical to the Gucci ones but only $23! (They run true to size)
