The "Real" v.s. The "Steal"

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Some of my favorite articles in fashion magazines are the "Splurge v. Steal" features. I love seeing some amazing garment for over $2,000 and then the editors find a similar one for $80! 

I decided to do my own take and call it "The Real v.s. The Steal." This idea came to me randomly, like most my thoughts do. I was shopping at Target and picked up a Merona tortoise shell watch to enhance my arm parties. A few days later I was surfing Pinterest and I found a Michael Kors watch that was almost identical! Thus, I had to share it with you :)




C'mon, you have to admit they look crazy similar! I assume the MK is more well made, but honestly I already have an MK watch and how many do I really need? I liked the appeal of buying a cheapy watch because every time I wear my real MK, I'm scared of scratching it or losing it. The Merona is the perfect solution and for $15 I can buy three more!!

I totally agree. I do have some more expensive pieces...but why not get inexpensive ones that look exactly like the real deal?! It's all about putting it together nicely!!! Great job Tori

I love buying cheaper things, especially fads and stuff like that. Plus like you said- if I owned anything super expensive, I'd be scared to death of messing it up or losing it. This is why I won't spend more than $5 on sunglasses. No matter how badly I want a pair of Tortoiseshell Ray-Bans!
