Splurge vs. Save

Hermes 35cm Crocodile Birkin Red, Gianvito Rossi Lace Pumps, Black Lace Heels,Shoemint Lace heels

I was asked to do a post dedicated to items I have purchased this year that are inspired by expensive pieces but for 1/10 the price or less. I eagerly accepted the challenge given to me by Credit Card Insider (www.creditcardinsider.com) because I am a girl on a budget but I don't want that to prevent me from looking like a million bucks. I am always on the look out for pieces that resemble high end items but must be in my teeny tiny budget (just kidding, but you get my drift).

I saw these gorgeous lace pumps on some of my favorite fashion bloggers but I knew I couldn't afford the price tag of the Gianvito Rossi pumps. I started my search for the right lace pump that didn't look cheap or cheese and then I stumbled upon Marlee, which is Shoemints version of a lace pump. I've worn my Shoemint pumps a few times and I have already received a few compliments. Don't take my word for it, judge for yourself below!

I found the bag of my dreams thanks to my boss who introduced me to the Vanilla London website. I was immediately drawn to all the Bertie bags because they closely resemble the Hermes Birkin bag which is the most coveted bag in the world. I love that my Bertie is 100% leather which means it's going to last me a long time and it's light for the girl who loves to carry a bunch of nonsense in her purse! Every time I wear this bag I get so many compliments and to top it all off it was a gift! I am one lucky gal with a great boss!!

The first time I saw these beautiful heels was on my girl RiRi (Rihanna) and I fell deeply and madly in love with them. They are so unique but in a good way and the color is perfect for spring and summer outfits. Shoedazzle sent me an email of there latest heels and these babies were on it for such an amazing price I couldn't say no! I haven't worn them yet but when I do I am sure they will be show stoppers!!

  1. The black lace steel is amazing. You really can't tell a difference in quality so you might as well save $800.

    Great post.
