One peek at my closet and you’ll see I own a wide range of items, all at different price points. That’s because I’ve always believed you don’t have to spend a lot of money to put together a look that’s eye-catching, fashion-forward and luxe!
Don’t get me wrong, I love designer shoes, but most don’t fit my large feet, and not everyone can justify spending almost $400 on sunglasses or designer accessories a few times a year. That said, there’s a bunch of budget-friendly alternatives that look very similar and are way easier to pull the trigger on. My tip is to test pieces in their less expensive versions and then, once you know which ones you keep coming back to, splurge on the higher end models if and when you’re able.
Here’s a roundup of some of my go-to pieces, in both “splurge” and “save” versions:
Splurge: Chanel Tweed Jacket, $3,500
Save: Talbots Tweed Jacket, $179
Splurge: Dior Pearl Earrings, $200
Save: Ann Klein Imitation Double Pearl Earrings, $15
Splurge: Kate Spade Feather hem Blazer, $1,298
Save: Eloquii Feather Hem Blazer, $150 (before discount!)

Save: Vaneli Cap Toe Slingback Pump, $150
