Splurge vs. Steal: Fall Trends


I've scoured my September mag issues to bring you just a few of the hottest fall trends. I've included something for every budget, so there's something for everyone! Mix price ranges if you'd like. Additionally, I am linking only to the steals. If you'd like links to the higher priced items, simply click the pic to be taken to my Polyvore--you'll find all you need there. Enjoy!

Splurge Vs. Steal: Fall Trends

Skinny Cords
  • Splurge--I found these Balmain skinny cords for over a thousand dollars!
  • Steal--A bit more attainable are these cords for $70 from Gap.
  • Best Bet--Forever 21, $20
Geometric Prints
  • Splurge--I spotted this Etro shirt for almost five hundred dollars.
  • Steal--Try Debenham's version for $50.
  • Best Best--Missoni for Target, $30
Polka Dots
  • Splurge--This cute Sonia Rykiel blouse will set you back four hundred dollars.
  • Steal--Another option is from Oasis and is only $50.
  • Best Bet--Old Navy, $18
Black Lace
  • Splurge--This gorgeous Red Valentino dress costs over a thousand.
  • Steal--For $90 you can have this Neon Hart black lace dress.
  • Best Bet--$30, Forever 21

Any trends you're interested in? Any items you're splurging on this season?

  8. I just got that polka dot shirt from Old Navy in the mail yesterday! It's really cute in person and a great length if you're long waisted. I got it in red, but I like it so much, I may get another color.
