Splurge vs. Steal: Spring’s Hottest Trends

Chloe Hudson small crossbody, Forever 21 studded crossbody, Sea embroidered top, English Factory blouse, Dior So Real sunglasses, BP. retro sunglasses, Marysia scallop bikini, BP. scallop bikini, Chloe small Faye shoulder bag, Forever 21 chain crossbody,  Self Portrait Azalea dress, Aqua lace cami dress, Chloe suede espadrilles, Marc Fisher Adalyn wedges, Zimmermann top, Endless Rose top

I don’t remember the last time I did one of these, but I’m so excited to bring you my favorite Splurge vs. Steal post, yet! I’m sure you’ve seen either some or all of these designer items on bloggers or in street style photos (these shoes here, this top here, this purse here). While you may have drooled over the $2500 purse or added the $500 pair of sunglasses to your wish list,  I’m happy to report, there’s affordable dupes and you can have them all! The Marc Fisher wedges are my favorite steal item (nearly identical to the Chloe version but $460 less), but how similar is the Forever 21 chain crossbody to the Chloe Faye bag?! If you love the color, shape, and details, this is a great alternative.  Fashion doesn’t have to break the bank, right?
