Save vs. Splurge (#NSALE edition)

Save vs. Splurge: NSALE edition
Michael Kors watch ($159) vs. Michele watch ($1,995)
Rebecca Minkoff jumbo handbag ($236) vs. Chanel chevron boy bag ($5,200)

These kinds of posts are so much fun to make... it's amazing how similar some of these items look to their designer counterparts, but their price tags are insanely different. I especially can't get over the handbags... the Vince Camuto "Abril" bag looks almost identical to the Chloe Faye (and they both come in black, too), and the Rebecca Minkoff is almost an exact dupe for the chevron Chanel boy bag. A lot of the items in the "save" category are actually from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so they are discounted even more than usual. Don't forget that the sale opens to the public on Friday, and I'll be announcing the giveaway winners bright & early that morning!

I have SOOO many errands to run and things to get done today, and my boyfriend & I are going to  try to play tennis tonight when he gets off work (so I have to have everything done by then!). Wish me luck!

xoxo

  3. Tennis sounds like fun, I need to get my boyfriend to start playing with me again! Love these kinds of posts, it's crazy if you just want a trendy piece then you should always try and go with the steal! I would love a Chanel bag though!

  30. I love all your moms cute outfits! If I win, I'd buy Tory Burch Ashlynn riding boots in black, and Paige Verdugo ankle skinny jeans in aubergine.

  31. I love your mom's picks, great choices. Yesterday, I was able to get the very last pair of those adorable Vince Camuto booties (in store) in my size! I was super excited since they had already sold out in nearly every size online by yesterday morning when when I tried to purchase online! Love these booties, the color and the style.....they will definitely get worn often this fall/winter!

  32. I always love save & splurge posts. You can always get so many look-a-like items for a quarter of the price :)
