I thought I'd do a Splurge vs. Steal post based on this look. Here's my inspiration...
splurge vs. steal pinspiration by aprilanne147 featuring j.crew necklace
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?
