Autumn/Winter Looks for Less

Autumn/Winter Looks for Less


   Ankle Boots- Rag & Bone ($495.00) vs. Steve Madden ($129.95) 
 Checked Pants- Zara ($59.90 ) vs. H&M ($24.95 )    
Scarf- Zara ($79.90) vs. Nordstrom ($19.50)   
Jewel Embellished Sweater- J Crew ($168.00) vs. Topshop ($92.00)  


As I was carrying out my usual routine of filling up online shopping carts with items I could never afford, I decided to do a little research to try and find similar items for a fraction of the price. This was actually pretty fun to do...it was kind of like a treasure hunt! I took some of fall/winter's trendiest essentials (plaid/tartan pants, embellished sweater, etc) and ended up finding strikingly similar items for about a quarter of the price. So, I clicked "remove" on the $80 checked Zara scarf in my online shopping bag, and then clicked "Order" on a $20 scarf from Nordstrom. If you do a little research, you can be very "on trend" and save heaps of mula. Just think about what you could do with all that extra cash... 


Need an idea? Well, you'll find me at Starbucks getting plenty of salted caramel hot chocolates.

  10. I have the same scarf from Zara in blue and I must say I'm in love with it! It's so warm and cozy, plus pretty much goes with anything.

    1. I'm jealous! I would LOVE to scoop up that scarf if it wasn't so pricey--it sure does look cozy though! I just ordered the other scarf from Nordstrom, which hopefully is as nice as it looks!
