The Edit: Splurge vs. Save

Every lover of fashion knows, there is a time to splurge on a luxury item, and a time to save on a less expensive look alike. I’m rounding up some of my favorite splurge vs. save pieces of the moment!

BELT BAG

How do you guys feel about the return of the fanny pack belt bag? At first, I thought never in a million years, but now I find myself lusting over the Gucci version. I haven’t been able to talk myself into it yet, but maybe this dupe would be a good test case. What are your thoughts?

LEOPARD CLUTCH

Leopard is having a major moment, and I’ve detailed some of my favorite pieces from the trend in this post. The print is everywhere at the moment, which means a variety of items at every price point!

PURPLE STATEMENT EARRINGS

Oh how I love these Kendra Scott earrings. They are on sale now, but originally this size was $110 and the larger version was almost $200. Despite my love for them, I couldn’t justify the price, especially when I have every other statement earring under the sun.

ROUND FRAME SUNGLASSES

These glasses make me think of Harry Potter and I love it! I bought the “splurge” version a few months ago and I wear them all the time. I have also seen the “save” version in person and the picture does not do them justice. They are a great budget option if you are not ready to commit to the Beatles vibes just yet!

RED VELVET SMOKING SLIPPERS

I have a bit of an obsession with velvet anything. It’s such a luxurious fabric! These smoking slippers immediately caught my eye and although the “save” version is still quite pricey, I may just have to have them.

BAMBOO BAG

Okay, my love of this bag is well documented, so I won’t dwell on it. I bought this dupe at the beginning of the summer and it is the best! Seriously no need to splurge on the more expensive version. I also bought it in black!

CORK HEELS

I bought the “save” version for my trip to Napa and I love them! They are super comfortable and great quality. I have the “splurge” version in the higher heel and when they are on you can barely tell the difference!
