Luxe for Less

Though there are certainly pieces I am willing to splurge on - think long term, less trendy - I often try to find a more budget-friendly alternative, especially if it is something I'm not going to use very often. My LV handbag was most certainly a splurge, but I've used it every single day since I made the purchase and see it lasting a very long time. A pair of Rockstuds, however, I don't think I could splurge on. Their absolutely beautiful but also ultra-trendy, so if I were going to spend the extra money, it would probably be for a more classic pair of heels. Want the look but not the price? That's where these look-alikes come in and for less than $100. Another great piece for less? Though I love this J.Crew cable knit hat, there's another version I like as much if not more - and for significantly less! 

One of the biggest compliments I receive is on these F21 black over-the-knee boots. The faux suede leather gives off a much more luxury feel than their $45 price tag, and they look so similar to these Stuart Weitzman beauties. I've come across quite a few pieces lately that give off a luxurious vibe but for a fraction of the cost. Check out these wallet-friendly pieces - which would make great gifts as well.

  2. Oh wow! Some of the saves look almost identical to the splurges! I even love the red save heels better then the splurge! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  4. Beautiful picks!! I think that it's worth splurging on a handbag and shoes as long as the styles are classic/timeless. I'm definitely checking out all of these items though so thanks for sharing!! :-)

  5. I do love your OTK boots and I love my studded heels from Nordstrom. Paying $900 for something that trendy is where I draw the line lol :)

  7. I love both of those hats! I'm obsessed with wearing cute ones. Those save Valentinos look like the real deal!

  8. I wish I would have seen that Madden Girl hat before splurging on the J Crew one - they are total dupes!

  9. Love the red heels! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I agree. I never splurge on trendy pieces. Love that cable knit hat with the pom pom and the Kohl's version is such a major steal!

  11. You nailed the looks for less! I love the copycat valentino heels and may have asked for those!!! xo, Biana

  12. Love the heels and the F21 boots look fabulous!


  13. I'm all about a splurge every now and again, but there's some things that I can't justify spending a lot of money on.

    These all look like really great dupes!
