Splurge vs Steal – Black Handbag

Now & then we all fall victim to a expensive fashion piece. I haven’t yet but there are some pieces on my wish list… If you only knew!

Let start with some tips:

* What I always suggest you to do, before buying something you actually can’t afford, is to

There are always cheaper alternatives & maybe they even look better!
If you’re buying for the fancy name attached to the item, well…

* Or, if you really really really (we all know we actually don’t) don’t need it, is to

If your main reason to buy it, is because it is highly fashionable & it probably won’t be no longer next season, well…

* If you already have a similar piece in your wardrobe, even if this one looks so much better, is that much softer & has gorgeous details, the best you can do is to

Yes! It is that simple! You’re not weak are you? 😈

With all of this been said, on to the through meaning of this post.

I found a great splurge vs steal. Well, actually the splurge ain’t that huge compared to some other handbags but still, every penny
counts right? ^_^

Naf Naf – € 130

Which one do you prefer?

The Bling Bling Issue: Splurge vs Steal

Elegant – Delicate – Dainty rings somehow became my favorites…

Splurge vs Steal – Love vs Hate: JC Lita Shoes

Lita Shoes. You love them or you don’t. It is that simple. I know I didn’t in the beginning. “OMG, seriously?!?” Was probably my 1st reaction. But it became a passionate love affair. Once I saw them in an outfit picture I thought they didn’t look that bad at all. And then they took over the internet and I became highly obsessed with them. Now and then I still believe they are not pretty at all but when I look at them from a different angle, I fall in love again. Continue reading

I could present you all kind of types but lets stick to 1 particular item: jogger pants. My current favorite ^_^

If you’d like to try it out, I present to you: Continue reading
