Splurge or Spend Designer Buys Vs High Street + Online Fashion

Saturday, 7 September 2013

Not everything in life is plain sailing, well i suppose life itself isn't either, there's always something that goes bump in the night and just when everything's going as good as it gets you spill dinner down your brand new super (way too expensive) white dress, you know the one you JUST bought!! 

Well was it really worth it after all that lusting over now its completely ruined?

By no means do i have loads of spare cash to spend like its going out of fashion on material items, if i did I'm not gonna lie I'd give it my best go and buy every expensive thing i laid my eyes on but (BACK TO REALITY) one day i do plan to buy a gorgeous super duper expensive designer bag (i did say one day) but what if you could get a little bit of  'luxury' without having to take out a loan and max out credit cards just for ONE thing.....

By luxury I'm taking about alternatives of something you can get considerably cheaper than the designer version which always look quite similar.

So as the title suggests are you a spender or splurge'er'rrr (new word right there) whatever your preference this post could help you bag a bargain or just make you want to spend even more money but either way enjoy!

 By no means are any of the item's exactly the same please keep that in mind.

Boohoo Becky Elastic Riding Boot (they have my name ha)

WOOD Carvela Kurt Geiger Boots


Due to Polyvore being stubborn and not finding my other alternative dress from boohoo.com.
 I've inserted the image below instead.

Topshop Cowl Neck Dress
Ted Baker Dress

Lovely green dresses I've been liking this colour a lot recently.

 One of the best bargains i found, well i think so anyway, would you spend that much on just one gorgeous dress!?

Think of how many Primark shopping spree's you could have with that amount of money ha!
Julien Macdonald Dress

Yet another polyvore fail but i had to share i love both these coats!
Splurge MAJE Leather-Trim Tweed Coat £479.99

So there you have it a few alternatives to some amazing designer pieces at prices that are everyday affordable, just about, all from the high street and online.

Considering all the designer vs high street copies it's also great to turn a page in my glossy magazine or read an article online about celebrities wearing clothes we can all get our hands on!

It's especially even better when its your favourtie celeb wearing the latest fashion's from the likes of ASOS and Topshop.
(Definite buying enabler right here! Are you the same?)

 Even the Girls of Made in Chelsea are wearing affordable fashion just like Lucy Waston who is wearing clothing from online fashion store boohoo.com

Also Rosie Fortescue Wears Warehouse

Frankie Stamford Wears Boohoo

Demi Lavato Wears TopShop

Millie Mackintosh Wears Zara

It just goes to show you don't have to earn top dollar to look like a star you just have to search the high street and online for clothing that suites your style and looks great for you as well as it being on trend.
(it's a hard life isn't it.)


 Where's your fave online or high street fashion place to shop?

Are you high street or designer?
