Spend v. Save

Spend v. Save (1)

If you’re anything like me, I tend to have caviar taste on a ramen noodle budget. So, I decided to put together this spend v. save post showing cheaper alternatives to some high end clothing.

This blog post contains affiliate links. For more information, please see my disclosure.

These Marc Fishers are all the rage in the blogosphere these days and they clock in at a whopping $169.95. But, if you’re interested in a cheaper alternative and not spending half your paycheck on a pair of shoes, these Steve Maddens look almost identical and are less than $60!


Cross front tees have been very popular this season. You could opt for this $72 version made by LNA or save yourself some simoleans and go for this PST top for less than $10!


You could spend your food allowance on this BB Dakota Dress that’ll set you back $185 or you can save yourself at pretty “penney” with the JcPenney version that’s priced at $34.99 or 50% off if you spend over $40!


This pair of  Steve Madden Slip Ons retail for $59.95 but, the cheaper alternative from Target cashes out at just $24.99! Can you even tell a difference?

I’ve been lusting over this Kate Spade Bathing Suit but once the reality of the $106.50 price tag set in, I knew I had to find a cheaper alternative. This almost identical version is only $23.99 from Cupshe!


Gingham and off-the-shoulder tops have been all the rage recently. You could opt for this one from Nordstrom that goes for $59.00, or you could  choose the less expensive alternative from Loft at a great price of just $20.99 (at checkout!)


Well, there you have it! Now the only thing left to do is decide how to spend the money I saved. Maybe, I’ll go do something crazy and pay the electric bill.
