Stylish For Less: Splurge vs. Steal

I like fancy items and designer labels just as much as the next girl (actually likely more than most) but my wallet is not a fan of the big price tags that accompany those items. That is why I love when we share some #stylishforless items with you. Every girl wants to look chic no matter how small her budget is.

  1. Great "steal" finds! I would never pay the "splurge" price for these things.

  2. I love bargains too! They're the best. My idea of bargains is definitely a college student induced one, though, since I'm usually not willing to pay more than $30 for something, but every now and then... Those shiny pants are definitely an epic steal. Thanks for showing them off.

    (also, I might have mentioned y'all in my latest post, since your pinterest has given me a serious new obsession...)

  3. I gotta say I anticipate logo stuff just a little bit. If the item itself is great, then fine, but I don't like to buy anything coz it's brand stuff.

  4. i think the thing with splurges is to splurge wisely such as perfectly tailored high quality basics that you will wear often or that one statement piece that you will love for years to come. for trendy pieces that come and go - i stick with zara, h&m or other cheaper alternatives

  5. These are great examples & I can't really tell a difference & I'm sure no one else can either : ) I think even if I had the money I would still buy more with my money & bargain shop.

  6. Those flower pants are awesome!! I actually like the steal version better than the splurge!

  8. I'm a big bargain believer so I love the Forever New floral pants. Most of the time you can't even tell the difference between splurge and steal (and often the steals look better!)

  9. I love a great bargain!! I can't get enough of getting something fabulous for a fraction of the price!

  14. I love both scalloped bikinis - they're seriously cute! I actually prefer the "steal" lace shorts to the splurge - love when that happens :)
