Hello everyone! As you can see in the headline, today I'm going to talk about affordable alternatives/knockouts. I'm pretty sure that sometimes you see a great (but overpriced) item that you just couldn't afford because it was to expensive. But here I am going to give you few examples on how you can save your money.
#1 Trench coats
A trench coat is a must in every closet, but it doesn't need to be designer. Most people think that if something is expensive it must mean that it is high-quality, but lets not fool ourselves, most of the 'designer' pieces are way over-priced. So here I'm giving you two alternatives to an expensive Burberry coat. The first one is from Asos, and the second one is from Mango. Both of them are high-quality products but they cost up to $1800 less than the original Burberry.
In this example I'm going to show you that designer things aren't always what you need. So imagine that your favorite jeans don't fit anymore and then you go shopping for new ones. As you were walking to the store you see this amazing Tommy Hilfiger jeans in store's display, but you realize that they are too expensive for you so you just keep on going while anything that you can think of are those jeans. Lets say you accidentaly get into a H&M store where you see the exact same jeans but they cost $200 less. In the photos below you can see that H&M jeans are almost (if not all) the same as Tommy Hilfiger.
I admit that all women want designer bags and so do I, but if you can't afford to pay $278 for a normal bag I got your back. In the photos below you can see that I chose two black bags- one is Michael Kors, and the other one is from Zara. Both MK and Zara go with everything from your closet, so why would you buy the one that is really expensive? Don't. Instead you can buy the cheaper one+you can renew you wardrobe for the rest of the money.
#4 High heels
$675 for a pair of heels??? Okay, I admit that Christian Louboutin heels are pretty much awesome but I found a replacement if you (like me) don't have $675 for a pair of high heels. I found this black heels in Office Shoes and their price is acceptable.
Watches, a great accessories for every combination. Oh and if you don't have $5000 to buy the designer one in every color than you can buy them for $200 in Bershka or on a market (who's gonna know?).
I personally adore this Tom Ford sunglasses but I don't have $435 to buy them so I think I'll setlle down with the sunglasses that are from Bershka :( , but hey that's how life works.
