  18. You are the queen of finding super-chic items on a budget! A girl after my own heart, because this 22-year-old is getting married in a few months and my budget is tiny. I love ALL of these finds and want that mint clutch!

    I'm always amazed at how often times I prefer the "save" over the higher-end item. This is the case across the board in this post too! Great comparisons here.
