The Look for Less

Hello friends! Here we are in the middle of the week and the middle of the month. August is flying by.

Today I thought I’d share with you a few thoughts on shopping and finding alternatives to items that are a little more pricey and perhaps a little more trendy.

I think many of us like to have items in our closet that are trending in the fashion world but due to budget limitations (we all have them) we don’t necessarily want to spend a fortune on something that may only be around a season or two.

More times than not, there is a good alternative for most pricey items. I was recently browsing some websites I frequent and noticed some pretty darn good dupes. Naturally I had to share them with you.

So how do you know when to “save” and when to “spend”? Well that will most likely be determined by several factors:

*Your personal budget

*Is it a WANT or a NEED?

*How trendy is it? Will it be around a while?

*How much will you use it? {i.e. – Is it a purse you’re going to carry every single day or just from time to time?}

*Do you want it for the label or because you love it?

Some of the best places to check for a high-end look for less: Target, Amazon, DSW, TJMaxx, Marshalls & Ross. The latter 3 may even have the exact same item at a deep discount.

How do you decide what’s worth spending a little more or when to buy an alternative?
