Splurge vs. Steal: Pinspiration

I pinned this beauty awhile back and have been itching to do something with it. (Well, other than attempt to wear it, of course!)

I thought I'd do a Splurge vs. Steal post based on this look. Here's my inspiration...

One of these outfits is a hefty $2100 and the other comes in around $480. Can you guess which is the "splurge" and which outfit is the "steal"?

The outfit on the left is the splurge. Expensive designer clothing (Missoni, Sergio Rossi) made this outfit more than 5x the price of the other. (Wait...did I do that math right? Pretend it's correct, okay? You know, for emphasis.) The outfit on the right, or the "steal" pulls similar looks from places like TJ Maxx, Payless and Tillys. This cute purple and preppy green/white ensemble is great for a church service, horse race or even an afternoon wedding or baby shower. Would you ever try this look together?



  1. Green and purple are one of my favorite color combos!

  2. Can you tell us where we can get the steal dress?

    1. Hey Ruth! :)

      The "steal" dress is from TK Maxx, which seems to be the UK version of TJ Maxx?,4,shop,001,0395
