Splurge vs Steal – Mara Hoffman Summer Dress

Just like any other fashionista, I ❤ a good deal! People think I spend a lot of money on fashion & beauty products but I disagree! Discount is key to me!
99% of my make-up stash & skincare are bought on sale. When it comes down to clothing, a Splurge vs Steal is a real challenge!

I found once again a really nice one! Continue reading “Splurge vs Steal – Mara Hoffman Summer Dress”


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? ^_^



Mansur Gavriel – Saffiano Large Tote – $595



Naf Naf – € 130

Both gorgeous bags. The SPLURGE looks very chic & luxurious & the STEAL looks different because of the suede accents. More casual because of the looser fit.

Which one do you prefer?


The Bling Bling Issue: Splurge vs Steal

Elegant – Delicate – Dainty rings somehow became my favorites…

It’s classy. And mostly they make your fingers look smaller & longer (as do the right form of fingernails but we ain’t gonna discuss that right now).

Eva Fehren has some lovely designs. There’s this one specific piece that I have been drooling over for months, but it is way above my paycheck. Continue reading “The Bling Bling Issue: Splurge vs Steal”


The Bag Issue part II: Splurge vs Steal

I think my love for the Drew Bag has been made clear. Perfect Perfection! *Sounds so cool!*

The not so cool part is that I cannot splurge on this heavenly little piece…

So I browsed the internet for some cheaper alternatives. And ok, maybe some equally priced bags but they were too gorgeous for not being included in this post…

Ready for some drooling?!? Continue reading “The Bag Issue part II: Splurge vs Steal”


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 “Splurge vs Steal – Love vs Hate: JC Lita Shoes”


The leather issue part II: Splurge vs Steal

(Faux) Leather is such a nice texture to add to your outfit. It makes it all that more interesting. Especially when it ain’t the most common piece, a leather jacket.

Wearing leather skirts, shorts and pants are a real challenge to some! I love wearing leather bottoms but I do not find many loving people in my inner circle…

There are so many versions out there! To start with faux and real leather.
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 “The leather issue part II: Splurge vs Steal”
