I love a good deal and I am mostly a very thrifty shopper and always try to buy at discount stores like Target or Old Navy and I stalk the sale sections at Anthropologie and Loft. But, I have always been a firm believer in splurging on accessories, timeless pieces of clothing, and a great fitting pair of jeans. I personally feel that designer jeans are worth every. single. penny. period! Eleven years ago Seven For All Mankind denim had just come out. Back then no one in their right mind would spend over $100 on a pair of jeans. I saw them on every single celebrity at the time and I was just dying to have a pair. I saw an ad for a local boutique who advertised that they were carrying them. I couldn't wait to go try them on. The hubby and I were dating at the time and I kept talking about them and finally he agreed to go take a look with me. I tried them on, fell in love, and even D agreed that they were keepers. To this day I still wear that same first pair, even though they are now shredding to pieces at the thigh. Hey, it gives them character! If I'm still wearing them eleven years later, I'd say that I certainly got my money's worth! So, splurge on the pieces that really make the outfit like your jeans and accessories and get your tanks and tees at Target or Old Navy.
Here is what I'm wearing today:
Tank Top, Mossimo for Target
Crochet Vest, Mossimo for Target
Jeans, Juicy Couture
Shoes, Mossimo for Target (found them this week on clearance for $12.49!)
All Jewelry, Stella & Dot
