I just want to take the time to thank everyone for all your sweet words yesterday. Nothing like feeling like crap from an allergy induced medication coma and seeing everyone’s ridiculously nice comments to brighten up your gloomy rainy Monday. I really appreciated every single comment!!
I had so much fun doing this post before and got such great feedback so I thought I would scour the sites again to find you those high end looks at a fraction of the price. I mean no one is looking at the tag and some of these are really great scores.
Let’s start with the first one. Now I’m not saying Forever 21 is the best quality but for the trendy pieces that are only going to be around for a season or two there is no reason to break the bank. I agree with putting the money into the timeless pieces but for the flash trends my rule is never to spend more than $50.
This lattice style dress is really in for this upcoming Spring and Summer. The subtle cutout dresses are definitely back again for when the temperature start to rise. I know down here in Florida I’ll take any ventilation in clothing that we can. At almost $400 though for a trendy dress? I don’t think so. I love this Forever 21 version. The print I think is prettier and I like the maxi length.
Helmut Lang is all things gorgeous and drape. Unfortunately really not on my budget unless I find clearance on top of clearance. When I saw this drape sweater all I could think about was the similarity for a fraction of the price.
I have this maxi coverup from Target and it is absolutely perfect! It has a nice jersey weight to it and is appropriate to throw on and grab some food after the beach. Here it is for a fraction of the price from what I found on Shopbop. With salt and sand I can’t imagine spending that much money on a beach coverup!
Target again for the win. Their C9 Premimum line is really giving Lululemon a run. Keep an eye out for sales or use the Cartwheel app to stock up these great buys. This tank has the exact criss cross straps in the back and compression as the Lulu for literally half the price.
