Chic Steals

March 17, 2014

Everyone loves a great deal, right?  Great designs are great no matter the price point and when I saw this gorgeous dress was only $50 it was a no-brainer.  Everything about it is fabulous, from the rich cobalt blue lace overlay to the (faux) leather trim.  Adding in the heels and the clutch this outfit (excluding the earrings) was under $175!  A M A Z I N G ! ! !  So that brings me to the difference between high-end designer pieces vs. high-street pieces.  And the short answer is quality.  Which for the most part is made up of quality of the materials/fabrics used and quality of construction.  There are defintely other factors that come into play, but those are the main two.  So when should you splurge and when should you save?  I tell my clients as a general rule,  invest in classic pieces that will last years and are of a timeless style such as a great pair of black trousers, the all important LBD (little black dress), and a classic suit.  Save your money on trendy pieces that you are probably only going to wear for one season.  My favorite places to shop for those fun, on-trend pieces for a great price are Zara, H&M, and ASOS.  IMG_2408IMG_2482IMG_2466IMG_2539IMG_2516Dress: Sidel Handbag: Zara (love this cobalt beauty) Shoes: Zara (Similar) Earrings: Iosselliani (love these)  Rings: JewelMint
