Battle of the Brands

Have you ever seen something that you absolutely LOVE, and thought to yourself, I HAVE GOT TO HAVE IT! Then, with hands shaking and fingers trembling, you slowly lift the price tag, eyes scanning for those dreaded succession of numbers after the $ symbol...only to find that you really shouldn't and cannot be spending $XXX on it? Well, dismay NO MORE! In addition to OOTDs and styling tips, I've decided to do a series on finding similar styles or lookalikes to my favorite designer brand items for a more affordable price. I will be focusing on "big label-inspired" shoes, handbags, clothes, etc. as opposed to counterfeits/fakes.

I mean, we all have an inner frugalista, right? ;P Especially in this economic climate, I'm hoping this series will help you to continue to express your style & be as trendy as you wanna be, while saving money (well, to some degree, since you could otherwise be buying those brand-new Jeremy Campbells online or that new Marc Jacobs purse!).

Who doesn't want to have the look they love, for less?

For my 1st post, I'll be showing you some cute suede wedges that are PERFECT for the Fall season. Don't get too close to your laptop, lest you drool all over it...
