Splurges & Steals

Hey Bloggers…..

Do you have your eye on designer duds, but not enough cash to fulfill your need? No worries! There are so many great looks out there at affordable prices.

The key to looking like a million bucks is in the details, not the designers. When shopping, keep a few simple rules in mind and you can transform runway chic into everyday reality.

First, realize that fit is everything. Just about anything looks quality if it’s a perfect fit. A little tailoring can go a long way… Keep it classic. Neutral tones and natural fabrics can help make clothing at any price look high end. Pay attention to small details. A little something that makes an item special is key….overdoing it is a no-no.

Check out these finds that are just as desirable as the original...but at a much friendlier price.
