this vs. that: navy + pink

1. Kate Spade Long Necklace, Kate Spade Pendant, J. Crew Jackie Cardigan, Kate Spade Bow Belt, J. Crew Factory Pencil Skirt, J. Crew Ballet Flat  |  2. Forever 21 Charm Necklace, Target Beaded Necklace (also seen here), Old Navy CardiganForever 21 Bow Belt, Target Pencil Skirt, Old Navy Ballet Flat
 
What made me first start thinking about starting a blog was comparing outfits such as this one above. For years I've admired brands like kate spade and J. Crew, but at times could not afford, or justify spending $$$ for similar styles I knew I could find at place like Target, Old Navy, Forever 21, etc.

This is a perfect example of finding a great look, but only spending a fraction of the price you'd pay for the big labels. Seriously...that Forever 21 heart necklace on the right is only $1.80!!! It's adorable, and not all that different than the $58.00 version I found at ms. spade's. Sorry kate spade and J.Crew, I love you, but I love saving money more! ;)

I'd love to hear what you think...leave your comments below!

  1. Can't believe it-- they're so similar too! I actually think I even like everything on the right more, so even better :)

    1. Thanks Emily! I think the only thing I like better on the left are the ballet flats (genuine leather)...everything else is cuter on the right! :)

  3. Hello! I just came across your blog, and I love it! It's such a coincidence that you posted that polka dot pencil skirt from Target, because I literally JUST went today and that was one of the things I bought! I agree with you- I'm totally a budget fashion type of lady :) Great minds think alike! If you get a minute, I’d love to know what you think of my latest outfit post! While you’re visiting, follow along so we can keep in touch! :)
