Sequins and Sea Breezes: Save vs. Splurge

Save vs. Splurge

3/24/2016


save/splurgeheader


Happy Thursday my little peaches! I'm excited it's almost the weekend and I'm excited to be sharing with you some save versus splurge pieces I've found lately. Don't get me wrong, I love splurging on occasion, I mean, who doesn't? But when it's something that trendy or in style now but might not be next year I tend to try to save instead of splurge. If you're like me, well then lucky for us, there are a ton of great dupes out there. With spring and summer right around the corner I've been on the hunt for all the warm weather pieces so here are a few saves and splurges I've found so far!

Save/Splurge1
Save/Splurge2


1 // This fun twist front Vix bikini retails for $172 but is currently on sale for $137. What a steal right? Or you could just pick up the MAR by Vix dupe for under $50 since it's currently buy one get one half off! I mean, is it really even a dupe when it's technically made by the same company?
2 // I wanted these gorgeous Steve Madden huarache sandals last year but couldn't bring myself to spend over $100 on them so when I saw these dupes I knew I had to pick them up. And even better, they're extremely comfortable and are just over $30!
3 // I've been trying to get back on the workout train and what better way to do that than with cute workout clothes? I love Lululemon but some ok most of their stuff is pretty pricey. This sports bra is super cute but at almost $50 it's a little more than I want to spend. So when I came across this almost exact dupe from Forever 21 I scooped it up... in three colors!
4 // This Chloe Drew bag is absolutely gorgeous but at almost $2,000 it's definitely not in my budget right now! So when I saw this dv by Dolce Vita dupe at only $25... score! 
5 // If you follow Roxy (from Rich Kids of Beverly Hills) on Snapchat (as well as a ton of other celebs) you'll notice she's been rocking these Dior Technologic sunnies a lot recently but honestly, I don't know how great they'd look on me so spending $560 on them is not realistic. These Free People dupes are a perfect way to rock the look at more than a fraction of the cost!
6 // By now you have probably seen every blogger under the sun post a variation of this bikini. They literally mass send them out and then your Instagram is filled with pictures making you want to jump on board too! Well now you can get the look for less! This bikini looks almost identical and is half the cost!

  7. Love these types of posts! Those shoes look so similar - I think I might even like the "save" ones better. I have been lusting after a triangl swimsuit for awhile now...sounds like I need to make a target run instead!

  9. I definitely don't splurge on trendy pieces either. I love those strapped heels and I might go pick up the cheaper option!!

  12. So many good finds! I am working a similar post and the Steve Madden, Target shoes made it in! Did you get them? My store was sold out so I just ordered them!!

  13. I’m all about a good dupe, but I’m always hesitant on shoes since sometimes the less expensive ones end up being crazy painful to walk in. Have you worn the Target ones? How are they? That bathing suit is identical!

  14. I really can't get over the fact that those sunglasses are $560 dollars though! Geez that is expensive!!! And since when has Steve Madden gotten so expensive too? Crazy. Anyway, love posts like this and all of your picks are super cute. That bag is my favorite though! :-)

  19. I love the fabric of those triangl suits though, they are like wetsuit material and lay/dry perfectly well. You found some awesome dupes especially the sandals and the sunnies!

  20. I'm usually all about the saves, but sometimes a good splurge is worth it. Love that you found great dupes for those sandals and those sunnies! And F21 for the win with the Lululemon dupe - LOVE <3

  24. We were definitely on the same page today with post topics hah. YOU nailed the dupes for sure. I love how you find the similar nude sandal I've been eyeing also! xx

  25. I bought those sandals at target, not even realizing they were a close cousin of the Steve Maddens. They are super comfy and go with EVERYTHING!! They are my go-to shoe and now I want them in black! Make today work, Rachel -CubicleCouture

  26. One thing that I never splurge on is bathing suits. I mean I just cannot justify paying hundreds of dollars on things that are going to be worn out in the sun, salt water, chlorine, etc. Now a nice pair of shoes or jeans, yes ma'am I will splurge in a heartbeat!

  27. Oh wow good to know about the Mar by Vix collection! I had no clue and you know I love a pretty bikini. lol This is such a cute idea for a post and I totally caved and bought those Merona shoes in BOTH colors!

  33. Love all of these saves! I could imagine spending $2000 on a bag, especially when you can find a dupe for much cheaper and it looks just as pretty! So glad you were able to save on those Steve Madden shoes when you found the dupes at Target!
